This month I was looking for some statement earrings. I received a pair of simple, classy clip-on earrings and a pair of bold, dangly earrings.
Hermes Clou De Earrings – Value $495, Member Price $347
I’ve had my eye on these classy earrings for a while. They’re simple but also so glam at the same time. Surprisingly, I’ve never worn clip-on earrings before and was surprised by how comfortable and secure these felt. They are light weight and don’t irritate my ears at all.
The earrings came packed in a branded Hermes drawstring bag made from a herringbone fabric.
The clip holds tight on the lobe and the silicon bumper makes sure they don’t pinch.
I loved having this flash of subtle glam on my ears.
Etro Crystal Sculpted Earrings – Value $495, Member Price $320
I think these earrings are so stunning. The bent metal forms a lovely shape and catches the light so nicely. I’ve long been a fan of statement necklaces but have been getting more into statement earrings recently. I used to worry that big earrings were too much when paired with my glasses, but I no longer care! I believe in wearing what you want – you do you, girl.
The earrings came in a vibrant pink branded Etro drawstring bag.
The earrings are sturdy and well made from gold-tone metal. The ruby-tone studs are crystals.
I loved the look of the earrings but have to say they were a bit heavy. They would be uncomfortable for a full day of wear but would be doable for an evening out. Or one very fancy trip to the grocery store.
Verdict: I am so glad Switch gives me the opportunity to try new things with no commitment. Both of these earring styles (clip-on and heavy-dangly) were new to me and something that was great to try out before spending a ton of cash. I found the Etro earrings especially stunning this month, and would have been very tempted to buy them for myself if they had been a bit lighter and more comfortable for a full day of wear. The quality of these pieces is evident in the details and I always feel special wearing my rental items. The total value of my rental this month was $990 which is fantastic for the $49/month rental fee for 2 pieces at once.
