“ Brand: Asda / Type: Earrings „
For Christmas I had no idea what i was getting from my parents this year. Up until this year I lived at home you see so my parents getting me gifts wasn't that difficult really. However now I no longer live in the West Midlands and I live in North Somerset things have changed. No more do they see in the bathroom what I'm running out of and mum can't look in my wardrobe to see if I need a new coat so like I say most of my presents (apart from a wad of cash and a lamp I really wanted) were surprises.
I had hinted to my Step Dad that I wanted some White gold earrings. Just plain ones really as I had a white gold necklace he had bought me the previous year and I had no white gold earrings to go with it and was relegated to wear silver I already owned and never got round to affording to a pair myself. So he went out and got me what I requested, plain hoop white gold earrings and when I opened them I was thrillled with them. What I didn't know or expect was that he'd seen these on Asdadirect.com and ordered them at the same time. Costing him £55.00 when he bought them you can now grab them (in some stores and of course from Asdadirect.com) at the much reduced price (for a limited time only mind you!) of £27.00 a pair! Huge saving!
As always my Step Father believes presentation is almost everything and ever since me and my mum have known him he has never been one for simply handing over jewellery in the plastic boxes and cases that they come in and I assume that these did come in something like that. He always buys us velvet boxes which we keep unless the jewellery is from somewhere mega posh and its got a nice box lol.
Well these come in pairs of course and measure H0.8 x W0.8 x D0.5cm. They are round in shape and if like me measurements don't mean a lot to you these basically cover and sit neatly on the lobe of my ear very plush. They are not heavy, oddly enough not hallmarked (though I am sure they are white gold!) and of good size with a slight blue hue colour to them and a beautiful polish making them really, well....sort of glisten and to me look veryb different than run of the mill silver.
These I guess you say have a dented look to them. What this is called is 'Crimbled' and what that means in lamens terms is that it is a textured earring made from an indentation of squares all over it which are made up from triangles! Complicated? Not really no! It just means that because they are indented with this pattern that they catch the light alot and are not smooh looking in appearance.
They come with 2 small white gold butterfly backs, are comfortable to wear and really do look great quality and worth a fewquid. I wear these in the daytime as they are not 'in your face' at all but I do wear them for special nights out with a little black dress! Lovely earrings worth the full price to have something so good quality though fab at the moment cos they are so heavily reduced!
