Now my son is getting older, well he is seven!, he is quite adamant that he is allowed to choose a present for me himself when it comes to birthdays and Christmas where as before I think he would have been happy to go along with whatever his Dad said. This year for my birthday he chose me some sterling silver cubic zirconia fancy stud earrings from H Samuels and this is my review of them.
The earrings came nicely presented in a small earring box and so I think they immediately look like a nice gift as opposed to the ones that come on a cardboard backing and are simply slotted through a hole.
The actual earrings are very nice to look at. They are around a centimetre from top to bottom but not very wide so they don't look too over bearing whilst on the ear. The sterling silver us very shiny and so they grab the attention as well. The earring is basically two twists of silver held together and at the bottom of the second twist a small cubic zirconia jewel sits to really add to the look of the earring.
I think these earrings are actually quite elegant looking and to be honest I am not sure it is something I would have chosen for myself but when I opened the gift from my son I was of course pleased with them! The earring sits nicely in the ear and doesn't protrude from the ear lobe and so I think they are suited nicely to work wear or even for a special occasion such as a wedding or something like that as they are quite dainty and delicate looking. I would certainly consider wearing these earrings if I were to be going for a meal or something but for nights out on the town I prefer something dangly!
My one issue with these earrings was that the first time I wore them I found it nearly impossible to get them back out of my ear as the butterfly clip at the back was just stuck on. In the end it caused some pain ripping the earring from my ear and so I decided to replace the butterfly clips with some from another pair of earrings and luckily these seem to glide off much more easily and so I don't feel worried about wearing these earrings anymore!
These earrings are sold in H Samuels currently for £14.99 but I think at the time of purchase they were cheaper as my son told me his Dad told him he couldn't spend much and they were the "second cheapest in the shop!" There is also a matching necklace in the range for £29.99 and it would be a lovely gift for someone to receive the whole set.
I recommend these earrings if you are looking for something simple and understated yet very pretty and elegant but I would say just try the butterfly clips before you put the earring in your ear just in case you are unlucky and end up with a bad batch!
Thank you for reading my review!
