March 30, 2014 - Not quite as shiny in the picture, but still very beautiful and vibrant color. I too, thought they'd be a bit smaller and would have preferred smaller. But I still like them and they are light weight to wear.

June 25, 2013 - I bought the green ones. They're a bit bigger than I expected but very light so the size won't be uncomfortable. The color of the wooden piece is a bit darker than shown but it's almost prettier that way.
