REVIEW: 2 Carat White Topaz Stud Earrings with Sterling Silver Backs - 3.7/5 stars
January 16, 2013 by
I received a pair of 2 Carat White Topaz Stud Earrings courtesy of Shadora.com for the purpose of providing an honest review. I couldn't wait to see them, because after visiting the Shadora website I saw a lot of great deals, especially of bangles which I love! I'm not a woman who wears studs. In fact, I own a pair of diamond studs that I received a little over a decade ago, back when my husband actually bought me gifts, lol, but I've only worn them a handful of times. I have a pretty short neck and a round face, and long earrings are known to elongate the face. Therefore, I can often be seen in hanging, chandelier and tear drop style earrings. But, who would pass up an opportunity?
They arrived quickly and in a cute little shadora box. First thing I noticed were these 2 carat earrings were a little larger than I expected. Looking at them for the first time, I honestly thought they were blah! But, they photograph beautifully! These are Topaz earrings, but because they are white gemstones it might be easy for someone to want to say they are diamonds. If they were smaller, you may be able to fool someone. They have a four prong setting and sterling silver backing. I really like how the backing is styled, placing it at the top of the earring instead of the center as it usually is, makes it easy for someone like me to manipulate the earrings so they sit evenly if I decide to use them for my second holes. [Back story: the guy who pierced my second holes sucked. They're uneven :) ]
What I love: The Price!!! The sterling silver backing and positioning and the fact that they use butterfly closures.
What I didn't love: Don't get me wrong, these are nice earring, but they're a little large for studs...that's just my personal taste. If you like to wear large studs, these are a definite keeper!
These earrings have a list price of $79.99, but you can get them for just $9.99 on Shadora.com. Check out their other items too, I saw some things I have to have!!! Really great prices! See styles that caught my eyes below...
