The info card for the box is tacked to the inside of the box lid. I giggled a bit at “naughty earrings”. They seemed perfectly well-behaved to me! But I love the idea that this box is curated with summer fun and a rock ‘n’ roll edge in mind!
Safety Pin Earrings
The earrings are packed in a plastic pouch… with a gray velvet pouch for storing them. The first pouch seems a little extraneous, but at least they’re thoughtfully packed!
I love the concept of these earrings, which are essentially fancy silver safety pins.
They aren’t the most comfortable thing to put in, I will say. They’re the tiniest bit wider than typical earring posts, so it took awhile coaxing this through my earlobe safely. The pin part really is pointed like a pin, and while it’s not super sharp, it’s enough to poke you if you’re not careful.
Once they’re on, they look pretty darn cute, though! I love that they have a punky vibe about them, but not in a really overt way.
Next, I got this set of silver circular earrings.
The earrings are essentially a hoop and a pendulum-like bar that hangs down in front of the hoop.
Each earring is technically three parts, so if you wanted, you could wear just the hoop or just the pendulum. Cool!
I really like the size of these! They’re not too big, but they’re big enough to make an impact. They dangle and swing a little as you move, too. I like that they’re a bit dynamic!
Pearl Fringe Earrings
Last but not least, there’s this pair of pearl studs with gold fringe swinging beneath them.
Each gold strand has a little gold ball at the bottom that keeps it weighed down. It also gives it a bit of extra sparkle.
I’ve never seen earrings like these before. They’re like really glamorous octopi!
Look how cool! These might be my favorite style in the box. The gold metal fringe is really pretty in the light and moves in a really pretty way. And the pop of pearlescence is cute and classy.
Verdict: I really liked my first SHIKKU box! The edgy, yet understated styles are right up my alley. Plus, it’s only $19.99 + shipping, meaning each set was probably about $7.66. I feel like that’s what I’d spend a a minimum on a pair of cool earrings at the mall, so I think it’s more than fair. I will say that my shipping cost was only about $3.00 (to Pennsylvania), so I could see the value of this box not being quite as worth it if you’re international, or have to pay a huge shipping cost just to get the box to you.
What do you think of the earrings I got in my SHIKKU box?
