The moment I opened the clear square box, I gasped at how pretty and delicate the 3 sets of earrings were. Sterling silver beauties adorned with 3 delicate pearls on each hoop were as sweet as a breath of fresh air. Immediately, I showed my mother and younger sister, who both gushed how much they liked them. My sister (the proud owner of a gazillion earrings, rings, and bracelets) made it loud and clear that she wanted a pair. My mother continued to admire the little pearls. And I happily noted the Springy pastel colors. Interesting. It quickly dawned on me that we were three different age groups who all adored the same earrings. Three different females who (if we purchased these earrings on a day out shopping) would wear very different outfits that complemented them wonderfully.

Well, she surely put a little happiness in mine!
Regardless of age, these earrings have a certain charm and simplicity that makes them wearable. My only issue may be with the size. While they are by no means small and unnoticeable, it would’ve been great in a slightly larger hoop. Twice the size would've been ideal. I typically wear stud earrings on a daily basis, but when I do switch it up, I like to go large. Not obnoxiously large (okay . . . maybe sometimes), just large enough to feel a distinct difference from my every day norm.
QUIET LOVE's signature Pink Freshwater Pearl Happiness hoops (1 inch round) are a happy medium. A medium I can deal with because they are the epitome of classic simplicity. And if anyone knows me, they know that I am very fond of simplicity and also never afraid of running a little sandpaper along the edges of simplicity whenever I feel the urge. I’d wear these soft pink hoops with black leather, just as quick as I’d be ready to wear them with floral babydoll dress. And as a matter-of-fact, the day I wore them, I dressed in a white long-sleeved tee, a black motorcycle jacket, denim jeans, and black knee-high boots.
And that’s just the thing I really love about these earrings.
I can get dolled up for Sunday brunch in a dress and heels and these earrings won’t fail to fit the look perfectly. Or, I can dress down in a white tee, skinny jeans, and flats for a trip to the mall and I’ll still feel just as dainty and cute. It’s an all-purpose earring - ideal for a woman constantly on the go. But, it’s not overwhelming for a pre-teen. Not too unusual for a woman of a certain age.
