Vince Camuto 'Basics' Stud Earrings
As a previous reviewer said, these earrings are extremely shiny. I have very small ear lobes and it's hard to find many that are 1/4" to 3/8" (the maximum size I can wear) so I thought these would be a great for, well, as they are called, a "basic" earring and I bought them in both the gold and silver last year and then took one look and back they went. Last year, they had a similar pair made by Marc Jacobs in both gold and silver and I bought those instead because they had absolutely no shine. They were more expensive but they looked classy and understated but they were perfect but I recently lost one the the silver (it was a darker silver) and they apparently no longer sell them which is unfortunate.
As a rule of thumb, if they even slightly shiny in the picture, they are going to be much more so when you get them. If that's what you want, that's fine. Some earrings are meant to shine but these just looked so cheap, you could got to a costume jewelry store and spend $3.
Look, I know these are costume jewelry but the gold tone screams "I am fake!" I wore them once and every time I caught a glance of myself (our office has mirrors) I cringed.
I got these for Christmas from my husband, I really wanted the Kate Spade open spade stud in gold but they were sold out. This is a great alternative. They are cute and fun!
