A good friend of mine sold me her Links of London Effervescence Bubble Stiletto earrings, at a reasonable price.
The earrings arrived neatly wrapped in the same packaging she bought them in, with a pretty ribbon encircling the box.
The earrings are lightweight, not that long and feel very comfortable on the ear. The only trouble is, the tiny silver bar at the post doesn’t dangle as much if your piercing is higher up on your lobe. This is something to keep in mind.
I find these to be very pretty and serviceable for both formal occasions and casual events. I can see myself getting much use out of these.
I paid $150 for mine. The retail on these is $225 USD.
Kate first wore these earrings to the Ark Gala in 2011.
From the website: “Sterling silver bubbles come together to form tactile clusters on these Effervescence Bubble Stiletto Earrings. Lavender iolite stones echo the iridescence of bubbles, creating perfect jewellery for evening glamour.”
I think the churning of bubbles is a unique inspiration for jewelry creation.
The photo above is heavily photoshopped. The actual earrings are not so dark.
The earring stud which pins to the earlobe is made of sterling silver and lavender iolite. A thin chain extends downward and ends at a sterling silver ball with a corrugated texture. The length of the drop is 3.6 cm/1.4 inches.
Kate wore these to the Trooping of the Colour in 2012.
I love seeing her in cool tones. She looks lovely in ice blue and bright silver.
These egg-shaped drop earrings were famously worn for Kate and William’s engagement photo, shot by Mario Testino.
The Hope Egg earrings are made of sterling silver and white topaz. They are on French hooks and have a distinct egg shape.
From the company’s website: “The hope egg earrings- a very attractive and important symbol in Russian culture, traditionally given for birthdays, festivals, etc. This egg represents hope and new life and is decorated with white topaz.”
How very fitting that Kate chose these for her formal engagement photo. I’m very pleased with her choice. She could have worn diamonds or borrowed jewels from the Queen. Instead, she chose to wear a pair of small earrings to complement her cream Reiss dress.
Kate has worn them several times since the Mario Testino photo shoot.
These earrings are priced at a more affordable $475.
