These really might have a bit of a hex on them. Regardless, I've been loving these earrings lately.
Sarah Loertscher stainless steel small hexagon hoop earrings with their bangle siblings at the Shinola TriBeCa store when I was purchasing my black Birdy watch. I was drawn to the geometric shape, minimalist style, and hoop profile. They seem to go with everything, aren't too heavy, and the 1¼" diameter is the perfect size. I've received lots of compliments when I wear them: at work, out at night, and even at the grocery store. While I'm pretty sure these earrings are just beautiful and fun to wear, they were also the center of a little bit of drama recently.
I wore them out to dinner with some friends in Hell's Kitchen last week. Somehow, the sterling silver back of my left earring went AWOL but, thankfully, I heard the sound as it dropped and quickly recovered it from the floor of the restaurant. I tucked the earring in my pocket until I could get a replacement earring back. Then, as I was walking to the subway with one of my friends at the end of the evening, the earring made a near-suicidal jump out of my pocket onto the street. A really observant and nice gentleman walking behind us saw me drop it (!!!), picked it up, and got my attention.
Phew, close call. I can't decide: was that good luck or bad luck?
|P.S. They also come in a 18k-gold-plated version.|
