“ Avon / Pearl Earrings. „
I had my ears pierced when I was about 9 and loved changing my earrings every week! I went for more crazy themed ones in my early teens and stopped wearing any earrings for a while when I was 17 as I found most earrings I wore were becoming quite uncomfortable because of the different shapes when I slept and I never remembered to put them back in in the morning.
I got these in my stocking at Christmas the year before last and put them in straight away as pearl looking earrings had become quite popular and I really liked these are they were quite small and not too 'in your face.' I went to sleep that night without taking them out and half way through realised I was still wearing them but because of the round ball shape I couldn't feel them!
I wore these earrings everyday until they literally fell apart (the pearl bit is stick to a silver bit that makes up the back of the ball and part that goes through the ear). My mum purchased another pair for me from Avon, this time they came with 5 other pairs including a larger white pair, a pink pair, a smaller blue pair and a silver pair all with the same iridescent pearl effect.
These earrings are great as they go with all outfits and make you look more dressed up, I've also read that pearl earrings are so supposed to subconsciously brighten up your face which is a plus. The only downside I have about these earrings is they become dull quite quick as they pick up dirt very easily, but they is easy cleaned with a bit of water and soft flannel. They are perfect for anyone who wants comfortable and expensive looking earrings for a cheaper price, they also make a great gift coming in little boxes like this in Avon!
I bought these from Avon a couple of months ago now. They vary in price but I got mine for about £4. The full price is £7 but Avon products seem to be on offer every other brochure so it is probably best to hold out for a bargain!
I thought the price I paid was a bargain, I thought they would go well with my pearl necklace my partner bought me a couple of years back on holiday.
When they arrived I couldnt wait to get them out of the box. They came in a really nice gift box and I think these would look great if someone to receive them as a gift. The box is a deep red velvet with a cream bow around it, there is a simple lift off lid and inside you will find the earrings.
The earrings are of a good size, the pearls are a little bit under 1cm wide, they are shiny, a lovely colour and look much more expensive than their £4!
The pearls are set in a silver plated back. Again, I thought this was great for the £4 that I paid.
When I put the earrings in I was pleased to see that they were really comfortable, they also looked fantastic. They looked very sophisticated and many people complimented me on my earrings and asked where I got them from.
Everything was fine with the earrings, I liked them so much I wore them every day, I even slept in them a couple of times and everything was great, they were really comfortable.
However, one day about 3 weeks after buying the earrings, I noticed one of the pearls was loose, after twisting it it fell out of its setting. It was covered in glue so I imagine it could simply be glued back in but I decided to return mine for a replacement pair so I am currently awaiting these.
Even though my first pair of these broke I am still going to give them 4 stars because I think they are great for the price. They look sophisticated, they are comfortable to wear and because they are silver plated they do not irritate my ears.
When my new pair arrive I imagine they will be worn just as much as the first pair. I recommend these, especially with Christmas coming up as they would make a lovely little gift.
Thanks for reading my review.
