I need to apologize for not getting this post up sooner. This post slipped under my radar. I should have posted this earlier last month.
Last month I received the most lovely pair of earrings as a gift form a company called Blue Nile for Mother’s Day. In fact they sent me two pairs, one to keep and one to give to someone special. My stepbrother eloped last month so I gave the earrings to his lovely new wife.
The exact earrings I received are pictured above. I tried to take photos of my exact set but the photo quality didn’t turn out as well. The flash made the silver look darker than it was when shot at an angle and when I took the photo from above the flash bounced off the jewelry.
The dangle sterling silver earrings are called Leaf Chandelier Earrings.
Chic and distinct, these chandelier earrings feature seven delicate leaves that are intricately captured in sterling silver with a flexible design for movement.
Its hard to tell from this photo but they are VERY sparkly and shiny. The way they are made makes light dance off them.
They look heavy but actually they are very light. Much lighter than I thought they were be the first time I laid eyes on them. They are a great length too. On my the earrings just dust the top of my shoulders.
My daughter keeps borrowing these earrings. She has dark reddish brown hair and these shiny silver earrings totally “POP” from her ears with her hair and skin coloring. They look much better on her than they do me. The look stunning with dark colored hair.
I also really like that these earrings can be dressed up or dressed down. They look just as lovely with pair of jeans an a t-shirt as they do in a fancy dinner dress.
At only $40 for the pair these earrings make a wonderful gift too. In fact I wish I new about them a little sooner. I would have purchased a pair for a family friend for her birthday last week. I think she would have loved them. Oh well, there is always Christmas.
Blue Nile has a lot of beautiful jewelry worth checking out, especially if you are in the market for diamond.
I would LOVE a diamond ring. I’ve never owned one before. I have been looking forward to an Anniversary Band for years. I was hopeful on our 10th and 15th wedding anniversary but my husband never had the money. Maybe I’ll luck out and finally get one of our 20th anniversary (we’ll be married 17 years this fall).
Blue Nile has a couple of rings I would LOVE to have.
I don’t even have my wedding ring anymore. My husband is wearing my wedding ring. His wedding ring got bent out of shape and his fingers got a bit bigger over the years. My ring size is larger than his. So I gave him my wedding ring so he had something to wear that was more comfortable while I tried to get his ring resized. Due to the design on our wedding rings it can’t be resized without destroying the look. So I just packed his ring away and let him continue to wear my ring. A couple of years later my husband bought me a Claddagh ring to wear as a wedding ring. It’s nice and I love it but it’s gold plated and over the years most of the gold has worn off so now it’s gold and silver in color.
I’m certainly not ungrateful, and I DO love my ring. It’s just that I’m a girl too and I like shiny, sparkly things and I would love to have a real diamond someday.
I went crazy looking at rings on the Blue Nile site. I even e-mailed a few images to my husband as a “hint”. Ha Ha.
In addition to rings Blue Nile also has bracelets and necklaces, and they carry other stones aside from Diamonds (I love their Emerald jewelry).
