EarFleek Premier Tier Silly and Fun January 2018 Review

EarFleek has launched a new “Premier Tier” subscription that delivers what seems like larger earrings with a bit more flair.

They also recently added a shop to their site, so you can purchase a specific pair (at a slightly higher price) if you like what you see.

The first difference I noticed between this “tier” and the regular Earfleek subscription, is the packaging. Usually, Earfleek earrings arrive in a zip-shut plastic packet inside of a small paper shipping envelope. This shipment, on the other hand, came in a proper cardboard box. And inside that, there’s a weird little “compact” that the earrings sit inside. The clear plastic panels are actually really thin, and act almost like cling wrap—shut the container and the plastic sort of seals around the earrings inside. Space-age stuff, Earfleek.

“Dip Me” Strawberry Earrings – Retail Value $12.00

These big 2D strawberries are made from a lightweight, hard plastic with a black backing. Each strawberry piece is just over 2 inches long, and with the dot at the top, they hang at just over 2.5 inches. I like how bright the color is, and the kitschy design.

Unfortunately, the silver post did break off of the red dot part of the earring the first time I tried to wriggle the backing piece off. (The little guy that you thread the post through—anybody know it’s official name?) I had a bit of super glue on hand, so it was back to perfect in a pinch, but that did bum me out and make me wary of their quality.

earfleek FAQ

Earfleek does mention on its FAQ page that they’ll replace items that arrived damaged, which gives me peace of mind!

Verdict: From what I can tell, the Premier Tier earrings are bigger than the smaller studs I typically get with the regular Earfleek subscription. I can’t really speak to quality though—they’re definitely still relatively simple plastic earrings, and I was disappointed that they broke so easily right out of the gate. All that said, they are super cute. I keep a rather modern, minimalist jewelry collection, but I like having this subscription to help give me some more upbeat options. These aren’t the kind of earrings I’d wear every day, but they’d be fun for a party or for days when my outfit is begging for something bold.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Earfleek is random, so you may not get the same earrings that I did.

Value Breakdown: These earrings have a retail value of $12.00 on the Earfleek site, but cost me just $9.93 to receive (albeit at random) via this subscription.

  1. FYI, if you buy a prepaid subscription (versus a monthly,) you cannot switch the category of earrings chosen once you’ve made your selection. They will NOT do it. So you might want to choose mix and match if you’re unsure, ‘cause you’re stuck with it!

    I wanted to try the silly choices to see if I liked them more than the minimalist style, but they said no changing styles. I was going to resub next month if I liked that choice better, but now I’ll never know. The selections reviewed here have been much nicer than the ones I’ve received, so I’m leery to sub based on the reviews. Too bad 👎

  2. Their replacement policy is a bit confusing to me. I subscribe to their basic plan (not premier tier) and has a pair arrive where one wasn’t fully formed, if that makes sense. I loved them & asked for a replacement and received a replacement but just a random pair. Not a replacement of the pair I loved. So.

  3. …or a clutch.

  4. The back of an earring that the post goes through is called an ear nut.

    • Thank you Sabrina! I sure didn’t know. Glad to learn! I’ve always just said “the thingy” LOL.

      • Hahaha, I’m the exact same as Dea! (“Oh no, I dropped my uh… y’know, the thingy!”) Thanks for filling us in on the right terminology!
