Ippolita 'Rock Candy - Teeny Teardrop' Rosé Earrings
Not teeny at all
I bought these to coordinate with the medium size teardrop necklace. They swing nicely in the ear without being too much when wearing the necklace - and without being too "matchy-matchy" as well. I bought the rose metal with clear quartz and it looks great against dark hair. The clear stone makes it easy to mix with silver pieces too. I only deducted 1 star because I wish it was a full leverback for security instead of a sheperd's hook.
Exactly what I was looking for...
...in an understated yet glamorous, hand-made style everyday earring. The quartz sparkles but is less dramatic than a diamond. The teeny size is perfect and light weight - for me, the small size would be too large and heavy and more of a statement piece.
I originally purchased these in the sterling silver but exchanged them in store the next day for the rose gold, which to my eye has a more understated but more high-end appeal. I would highly recommend these, and may yet purchase the silver ones again. Lovely and subtle!
Cute but too tiny
Do yourself a favor and get them in small, you won't regret! The "teeny" is cute but way too tiny. The "wow factor" is not there as the stone is too small to reflect in different lighting environment (which draw us to Ippolita collection in the first place.) The small size is just right, understated but elegant and versatile. I particular like the rose metal as it can be mixed and matched effortlessly with silver pieces. Happy shopping!
