I picked up the Louis Vuitton Eye Candy Earrings from the LV store in Portland, Oregon a few months ago. I actually called the morning of my trip to reserve them (they put them aside for you when you get there). LV is known for their mix n' match fashion earrings. I know not everyone is into this trend, but I don't mind it. I made a lot of friends (International Asian students) in college, and I never ever saw their earrings match! lol It was also a big trend in Asia when I was there in '07/'08 (Japan and Taiwan).
I really wanted to buy two sets at the time so I can have 3 pairs of matching earrings since I felt it was a good deal for LV jewelry, but they only had one pair for me. Soon after I bought these..the price increased! They're now $460 for the pair of three (I think I paid around $400, no tax because I was in Oregon). They available online at LV right now if anyone wants to take a look.
Find them under the Women - Fashion Jewelry - Earrings.
I don't think I will be picking up another set at this time because of the price increase. I took some photos to share with you.
The gold hardware is described as a "gold metal," and the crystals are "strass" (Swarovski).
I love anything sparkly!
I saw the matching necklace in person too.
It was super gorgeous, but also costs $1670 now..for the same shiny gold metal and strass.
They're not as pretty in real life as in their stock photo. To be honest, they look like completely different earrings (let me rephrase that..they ARE completely different looking earrings). The center stone is a more square/round shape in the stock photo and the number of crystals don't add up. The "greens" in the center of the heart pair don't match.. The stock photos look a lot more elegant, and have a thinner gold setting. I was a bit disappointed when the SA brought them out to me, but that's pretty common with LV for me lately. lol That's what you get for "Fashion Jewelry." I am glad I saw them and bought them in store. I think I would have been more sad if I ordered them from LV and saw them for the first time at home. I'd probably be really suspicious. lol
