I often purchase costume jewellery rather than expensive pieces so that I always have something which will be suitable to go with an outfit when I go out. I do often wear the costume jewellery on a day to day basis though and one of the items which I wear and change regularly is earrings. I was having a look online one day when I came across the Chic square diamante earrings which I thought were great and so I purchased them.
The Chic square diamante earrings are perhaps a centimetre squared, perhaps a little less and they are made up from rows of silver squares each with a little diamante in the middle. As the earrings feature so many small diamantes they do look really bling and sparkly and this is something that I like when I am dressing up a plain black outfit for example. The earrings are made for pierced ears and have a sturdy clip which fits well to the back of the earring which is obviously a good thing as you do not want to be losing your earrings when you are out and about which has happened to me in the past due to earring backs which are too loose.
The earrings are made from a silver coloured material but are 100% nickel and lead free so to comply with the UK legal regulations. As these earrings are not made from proper silver or gold I do like to make sure that I take them out at night rather than sleep in them which is what I do with some more expensive earrings that I own which are made from real silver. Despite them only being a cheap earring though they do not make my ears turn green or anything horrific like that!
I think these earrings look brilliant once they are in and they really stand out and look pretty in the ear. I do like to wear these for nights out but it is not just limited to that as I have been known to wear them for work or just when I am in the mood to have some earrings in even if I am just pottering about at home. As the earrings are so lovely to look at I do think that it makes me feel quite feminine and almost prettier when I am wearing them. I have had lots of compliments when wearing these earrings, so much so that I actually bought some for my boss and my sister last Christmas too.
The earrings cost me around £4.00 from amazon last year and I think for a pretty pair of earrings which are suited to day or evening wear that they are a good buy. You can usually pick up similar types of these earrings from all of the high street stores.
Thank you for reading my review!
When it comes to buying jewellery I much prefer buying costume pieces. Now dont get me wrong I do like having a few pieces of nice, expensive jewellery but I prefer to keep those for special occasions and wear my costume pieces everyday so as you can imagine I do own quite a few cheaper items. A few weeks back I decided to have a look around for some earrings that were cheap and that would go with pretty much everything I own - but of course I wanted them to look good as well so I decided to have a peek on amazon and see what I could find. What I found was these 'CHIC Square Diamante Earrings' which I fell in love with straight away as they were exactly what I was looking for - cheap yet they didnt look cheap and they could instantly dress up a boring outfit and be worn all the time - my type of thing exactly so I bought them straight away. And I have to say I think Ive worn these literally everyday since - they are that nice.
Price: £3.99 (Including P&P)
Stockists: CHIC Jewellery on Amazon.
Other Info: These are square shaped, diamante encrusted earrings that measure approx. 1.5cm in length and width. I assume most people will have realised this but these earrings are made for pierced ears - I dont think CHIC offer a clip on version - worth mentioning if you havent got pierced ears.
Now in reality these earrings look exactly like they do in the image with this review - so as your buying online what you see is what you get and you wont be disappointed with the design of these. Now these earrings are made up of small diamantes (4x4) which are fitted tightly together and make up the square shape when you look at these as a whole - when you look close up you can clearly see the individual gems but as a whole they just look like one big gem and so much better. But lets face it no-one is going to be looking at your ears that closely anyway so the slight gaps between the gems arent that much of a problem. The gems are clear in colour (they might be available in other colours) and very sparkly especially when they catch the light - great in this type of weather. The gems are obviously not precious in any way but they actually look much more expensive than the mere £4 you pay - the gems are simply stunning and they make these earrings look incredibly classy and they instantly make a very casual outfit look much more dressed up - I didnt know a simple pair of cheap earrings could achieve that to be honest!
The back of the earrings are silver plated and do make them look slightly cheaper but when they are actually in your ears you cant see that part anyway so I guess that doesnt matter too much. Also that silver plated part helps keep all the gems in place and ensure that none of them fall out so even though it doesnt look great it does help ensure these will go forever without breaking.Obviously on the back of the earring is the silver stud which you put through your ear to wear them - nothing strange there but what is odd is how comfortable these are! Now as they are slightly bigger than what I would normally wear - they cover most of my ear and hang over a little over the bottom - I did assume that these wouldnt be that comfortable to wear for long periods of time but it turns out I was wrong. I wear these literally ALL the time and Ive never felt uncomfortable with them in or felt like my ears were a bit weighed down so they are slightly large BUT they are still light enough to forget your even wearing them. Although I dont recommend wearing them whilst your sleeping - that will make the stud dig into your head and Im talking from experience here so be warned! Daytime okay - nightime bad!
Now as the colour of these is quite neutral that means they can be worn with literally everything wether that be your more casual clothes or a dressier outfit. These are great for daytime because they make an everyday outfit look much more dressed up because they appear so expensive and sparkly and even better for adding even more glamour to a night out outfit. These really do look great on me - without being bigheaded! - and Ive been getting so much use out of them since I bought them around a month ago and I can see no signs or wear on them yet at all so I think they will last me a very long time to come - they were 100% worth the little money I paid for them as these have become my favourite earrings to wear without a doubt. I 100% recommend these for literally anyone whether your looking for a pair of earrings for casual or galmour wear as these are perfect for both - Im overjoyed with my purchase.
Thanks For Reading.
