The Color-Changing LED Earrings are nifty novelty flashing earrings that you use like standard pierced (post-type) that not only look nice, but they catch the eye with flashing LEDs (an RGB LED that does some pretty cool tricks).

The "stone" is not diamond, but it is not glass either; it's a large (est. >2 carat) cubic zirconia.

To use the Color-Changing LED Earrings, put them in your ears as you would any other post-type earring. They're for pierced ears only.

To turn them on, push the jewel and the back together a bit.

To neutralise them (deactivate them), pull the jewel and the back apart a bit.

Pull the post portion straight off the back portion (which houses the remarkeably small battery pack), and throw the jewel/post portion into any convenient punchbowl at a large party...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside!!!

On the battery pack, where the post/jewel goes in, you'll see a small raised cylinder. Turn it counterclockwise until it comes off, and set that aside as well.

Tip the battery compartment into your hand; two used batteries and a small, thin spring steel "doughnut" should now fall out. Throw the two dead batteries away.

Place the spring steel doughnut-shaped piece back into the compartment, orienting it so that the domed end faces up. Use a small screwdriver if necessary to "help" it into the battery compartment in the correct orientation.

Place two new LR521 button cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their nipple-ends (-) negatives face up.

Screw the top of the battery compartment back on finger-tight only (do not use tools such as dikes {the wirecutters, not the other kind, hahaha!} or pliers).

Finally, place them back in your ears.
Aren't you glad that you didn't huck that jewel/post into a punchbowl at that big shindig now?

If you love shiny, blinky things, you'll love the Color-Changing LED Earrings.

The Color-Changing LED Earrings are meant to be used as a blinking novelty item, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused, so I won't try to drown them in the toliet tank, bash them against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a porch, let any of our "citty" "kats" go to the litterbox or let my mother's big dog's ghost piddle (uranate) on them, run over them with a 450lb Quickie Pulse 6 electric wheelchair, stomp on them, use a medium ball peen hammer in order to bash them open to check them for candiosity, fire them from the cannoñata, drop them down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piñata" too much again (yes, I have a number of episodes of this program on DVD!!!) - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piñata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoñata (also located at Piñata Central) is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from picturesque Piñata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piñata Island), send them to the Daystrom Institute for additional analyses, or perform other indecencies on them that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Photograph of the product lighted in my ears ("illuminurinated", of course!)

I have these earrings (for pierced ears) in both ears. According to the 'earring code' from the 1970s, this would indicate that I'm a F46607!
I am indeed a "homosexicle" (from the movie "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry"); and I have no reason to hide or "stay in the closet" as it were.
