I bought these pretty earrings for my office Christmas party, the Ice Sparkle Sterling Sliver Crystal Drop Earrings are from Argos, item number 218/0351, and currently cost £14.99.
When I purchased my earrings they were presented in a plain little mint green and white box. The inside of the box has a little padded cushion in it that is usual when buying jewellery. The earrings are actually in a small clear polythene bag laid on the cushion, This is probably for hygiene purposes but doesn't really look very nicely presented is you are giving these as a gift.
The earrings are for pierced ears and are the sort that have a crook shaped top, the earrings do come with a pair of plastic backs which could slip over the curved post but personally I have never used these. The earrings are made to look like a little spiral and have a 3.5cm drop. The inner side of the spiral is shiny and smooth while the outer edge has a brushed silver finish and is set with little clear crystals all the way down. The earrings are virtually weightless which is what I like. I hate really heavy earring that pull your ear lobe down. Once these are in I cant really feel them.
I love these earrings, and although I originally bought them for a party I have since worn them for work too. They are so pretty when you are wearing them. The spiral design means when you wear them you can see both the shiny silver side and the brushed silver side too. The crystals, although tiny really sparkle and catch the light and as the earrings are a drop design they move slightly making them sparkle even more.
Despite not using the plastic backs that came supplied with the earrings I have never had any problems with them slipping out of my ears, the hook part is quite long so the earrings feel nice and secure but of course of you want to slip backs on them they are supplied.
I love wearing the Ice Sparkle Crystal Drop earrings, although they are sparkly they are in no way over the top and can easily brighten up any outfit even if its just jeans and a top. When I wear them for work I tend to wear them with plain silver studs ( I have my ears pierced 3 times) but if I'm on a night out I wear them with sparkly studs. Either way the earrings look very pretty. I have had no irritation from wearing these but of course this depends on the individual.
If you are looking for a smallish pair of earrings with a lot of sparkle I would recommend taking a look in the Argos catalogue at these. There's a lot of sparkle in them for a reasonable price.
