At first I thought I missed my chance to own these earrings, (they were sold out everywhere) but a friendly and kind Instagram replikater posted a photo of her earrings and stated she wasn’t sure she would keep them. Taking the initiative, I contacted her and asked if she would sell her earrings to me instead of returning them to the retailer.
Taking the initiative pays off sometimes. 🙂
They were sent to me in their Neiman Marcus box, very well wrapped. Inside the box was an OdlR pouch. The earrings were enclosed in a bubble wrapped plastic bag.
The earrings fastened on with a post and a metal earring back. I wore them for hours and felt virtually no discomfort. When I first put them on, they felt substantially weighty but not unbearably hefty.
Here they are on me.
They appear somewhat large at first, but as the day progressed they started to look more appealing and attractive on my ears.
These are fun to wear if you’re a fan of Princess Diana’s jewelry style. They look best when the hair is pulled away from the face.
On July 20, 2017, Kate brought out another pair of Oscar de la Renta earrings.
From the website: “Make a subtle statement in our wear-with-everything button earrings. Crafted with striking gold-plated sun stars, this darling pair is set with lustrous Japanese resin pearls. They’re the perfect pairing to everything from classic knits to trendy dresses.”
These earrings are made of pewter, resin pearls, brass and steel.
They feature a center pearl surrounded by yellow gold plated spikes and small spokes, encircling the center pearl and created a sunray effect.
On October 14, 2016, Kate debuted these new button earrings.
From the website: “Gilded details nod to natural oysters and Art Deco discs in these show-stopping button earrings, accented with lustrous Swarovski crystal pearls in statement, sea-inspired design. Handcrafted in America from weightless gold-plated pewter, this simple silhouette incorporates just the right amount of elegance into any look.”
• 5/8” long x 5/8” wide
• Clip backs with comfort pads
• Pewter / crystal pearl / brass
• Nickel-free / lead-free / cadmium-free
I admit I didn’t quite catch the reference to pearls in oyster shells until I read the description. It’s a clever design consisting of a round pearl centered in a hammered metal setting.
The earring attaches to the lobe by a post. The base of the main component is slightly curved at the rim, echoing the natural curvature of an oyster shell.
