Fleur de Lys Droplets
Coloring Different in Person
I've been in love with these earrings since I discovered BHLDN... I finally decided to go for it and was disappointed. In the product photo, the yellow part of the earring is a rich bright chartreuse, the purple is a pretty lilac and the gold looks a little "vintage."
When they arrived, I discovered that the metal was a very bright, shiny yellow gold with no patina (distractingly shiny...) the cut glass is very transparent so you can see the gold setting through, and the colors are nowhere near as rich as the photo provided on the website. The glass is a topaz-y yellow and a more blueish lavender, also very pale.
There's nothing wrong with the earrings per se, but I will be returning them, as they are not as pretty as they are made to seem on the website. Too bad :(
