JewelMint: Faye Dynasty Earring Review

If you read my blog regularly you will remember me mentioning a company called JewelMint.    I reviewed a few pieces of their jewelry a few months ago here.  

I recently received the Faye Dynasty Earrings.  I picked them because they weren't something I'd typically order.   I looked through my stash of JewelMint that I've acquired over the past few months (and its alot).  I noticed I tend to end up choosing the 'same' things.

I have a lot of bracelets. I love them don't get me wrong.  I needed something though that wasn't a bracelet.   These earrings totally fit that.  They really are perfect for a casual look or great for a night out on the town.  Not that I get many of those anymore but you know just in case I do, I have the perfect earrings now ;)  You can check out the JewelMint blog here to read about Cher & Kate's inspiration for the earrings.

I love the detail on these earrings.  From the four little blue crystals on the front of the lever back to the blue enamel detail on the center of the earring.   This picture just doesn't do it justice.   Its a little hard to tell from the picture but they have a bronzed/antique look to them.  They really do have a great vintage feel to them.   I was a little afraid they would be to 'blingy' to wear for everyday but yesterday I paired them with jeans and brown 3/4 length sleeved shirt and they looked great.

If you haven't checked out JewelMint yet, now is a great time to start!  The October showroom was just released plus some old favorites have been re released (Birdcage I'm lookin' at you!).  Make sure you check them out before they are gone!    Also if you want to meet some great addicts  JewelMint fans, check out the JewelMint facebook page.

Disclaimer:  I was given a free piece of jewelry to review but that in no way determined the review of this product.  The opinions above are my own.
