These earrings look heavy and unwearable. But actually they are light. After you put them on your ears, they do not reach the ground. However, when time passes, you will slowly feel pain from wearing them. Then you’ll want to bend your back and let the earrings touch the ground so your ears can have a little bit of rest. After a while, your back will be painful as well. Then you’ll want to stand straight again to release your back. It is a process of feeling the infinite loop of pain from gold.
