“ Manufacturer: River Island / Type: Earrings „
I purchased these little owl earrings from River Island a few months ago, priced at only £2. They are still available now in store as well as online on the River Island website. The earrings are part of River Island's cheaper jewellery range, which includes quite a lot of little earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets priced from around £1.50 up to £3. This range is great for me as I hate paying around the £10 price mark for jewellery that you often find in other similar fashion retailers such as Topshop. The colour of the jewellery usually turns rusty or fades after a while, that or they end up breaking easily.
The earrings are a rose gold colour, but I think they still go with a lot of my gold coloured jewellery, you don't necessarily need to buy other matching rose gold coloured jewellery. Also it is worth noting that I have had these for a few months now and they are still the same colour that they were when I purchased them.
They are only little studs but they must still be noticeable because I have received a few compliments by people when wearing them!
When I wear fake gold/silver jewellery, or to be precise rings, I almost always end up with a green finger from it. However, these do not give me green ears thankfully! I am not sure if this only happens when wearing rings due to washing your hands and water getting on it etc, but if you are allergic or cannot wear fake jewellery usually then I can't comment for sure on whether you will be ok to wear these earrings or not.
I love these cute little earrings, and even though they are only small they really do stand out or make an outfit that bit more quirky, especially when wearing my hair tied up. I will definitely be purchasing more of the little studs etc available from River Island at this price!
GOLD TONE OWL STUD EARRINGS
100% metal - £1.50
These earrings are really cute, they are from River Island, and are just under 2 cm long. They feature the cutest little owl charms, that are coppery gold in colour, and they have little enamelled eyes that are kind of an off white.
I have to admit I bought them for a friend as part of her birthday gift, as she is such a fan of all things owl featured, however I ended up keeping them as I just couldn't part with the cute little owl faces.
The earrings are for pierced ears only. They are not to heavy to wear all day long like some bigger earrings can be, but the metal did irritate my ears after about 8 hours wear.
Considering the price of these earrings I really do feel that I bagged a bargain, and would clearly recommend these to a friend - in fact the friend who I originally bought them for loved mine so much she got herself a pair...
As part of my birthday present this year my sister bought me a few pairs of River Island earrings and one of the ones she chose for me were the gold tone owl stud earrings and this is my review of them.
The earrings are made from a gold tone coloured metal but have a silver coloured metal part that goes through your ear as well as a silver coloured clasp as well. They are costume jewellery first and foremost and so they are not made from real silver or gold as they are a cheap option for changing your earrings. I do like to change the earrings I wear most days and so these costing just £1.50 from River Island make them a very affordable choice.
The actual earring is around a centimetre in height from the top to the bottom and so they aren't too intrusive or dramatic looking when you are wearing them. The actual earring is made to look like a little gold owl and I have to say I am so impressed with the detail in these earrings to say they are such a cheap price. On the earring you can see the owl's feet, ears, nose and plenty of feathers as well as big pale blue eyes which really stand out on the piece. It is a very cute looking earring but I don't think it looks childish in any way and I like the way that they look when I am wearing them.
I wear these earrings regularly during the day and I have to say for me personally they are best suited to day wear as they seem a bit more casual than the earrings I would likely wear on a night out. I suffer no ill effects from wearing these earrings during the day and in the past I have had my ear be tinged green from wearing cheap earrings but this is not the case with these thank goodness! My ears do not feel sore after I take them out either and so I do think that despite the cheap price tag these are good quality.
I really like these earrings as I think they are fashionable, current and look really nice when they are in too. They aren't boring either and I have had people comment as to where they are from when I am wearing them and people seem to really like them. You can pick these up from River Island stores or online of course for just £1.50 and I have to say I think that they are great and for the price you are getting an incredible bargain!
Thank you for reading my review!
