Beautiful CZ Earrings

La_Shue_Earrings It's been fun getting to review great knitting and crochet products!  And I believe my 26,000+ email list has been enjoying them as well, based on the comments and feedback I get.

So, it seems that I've opened myself up to being a good reviewer.  Can't say I mind when I get offered some free jewelry to review!!  A girl just can't say no to that, can she?

Sarah, from LuShae Jewelry, www.jewelryartdesigns.com, asked me to review her cubic zirconia jewelry.  I took and look at her site and found some earring designs that seemed quite nice, so here is my official review of them.La_Shue_Flower_Earrings2

I requested two designs, the Sterling Silver Flower Bud and the Sterling Silver Princess Studs.

The order arrived very quickly!   Each set of earrings came very nicely packaged in a little blue box that snaps shut.  The box is nice for storing the earrings and for gift-giving. 

The Flower Bud one is really unique in design, featuring a cascading cluster of three 5-petal flowers.  The left and right earring mirror each other in shape.  They have a nice sparkle, as you'd expect from good quality CZ. 

And the Princess Cut studs are beautiful and simple for everyday wear.  I've been wanting a pair for a long time, as these are a very wearable size.  Not so big that they seem gauche or too obviously fake and not so small that they don't get noticed.La_Shue_Flower_Earrings3

So, yes, I'm a fan of these!  I find that with my busy schedule and as a mom of young ones, I I definitely prefer low maintenance earrings - ones that I can wear day after day with most any outfit.  Ones that make me look like I made a little (but not too much!) effort to look put together are always a good thing too ;-)

I'd recommend these as a classy gift for a girlfriend, sister, or for upcoming Mother's Day.

Take a look at all of the many other designs at www.jewelryartdesigns.com and tell Sarah I sent you!

The flower buds earrings are so pretty!!

Janice

The earrings were beautiful and I agree about the studs. Not too big. With the flower bud earrings it looked very nice.

Janet

Like you I like the "perfect" size everyday earrings... not too big to be overly flashy, not to small so they disappear in the lobes. And I'm really liking the princess cut these days. only thing that tops it is ovals. :)

The flowers are great! Dress up in a sec and not too over the top. Classy dressy. Simple but elegant.

I'd love a pair of either of theses!

Katinka

Lovely earrings!

Monkeygurl

As a member of the multiple earrings club, I *love* those two together. The flowers remind me of plumerias in shape/structure, which is always a good thing. Just lovely.

Nerissa

I love the earrings! You get an expensive, classic look with out the pricetag. I would love them, and would wear them everyday:).

Valerie Adams

My those are beautiful. Very elegant but simple enough to wear with jeans and a blazar. I will certainly be taking a look at other styles avaliable from this designer.

Beverly Reynolds

Lovely. Haven't seen anything like them. Thanks for the chance to win.

Shelly

Beautiful! Love the flowers!

sandi

The studs, as you say, are perfect for that I-cared-enough look busy mothers need. But, ah, those flowers. What an elegant statement they make!

Mary Swenson

amy

I love the flowers! I like the stud's as well. There just like you had stated being a mother you want to show that you didnt put too much effort into looking nice but enough to care about your appearance. there great!

Janie

My hubby collects jewelry and we would gladly add both of these to our collection. The floral pair are perfect for any occasion and as for the studs what more can you say-simply classic

Ann S.

Elegant earrings - especially like the floral pair - great idea to mirror each other. Also like that they are delicate, not flashy, yet look like you took more effort to get "prettied up".

jennifer

Love the earrings especially the flower pair. Gorgeous!Hugs,Jennifer

Debbie

I love the flower earrings. They are beautiful. I would love to win a pair.

I love those flower earrings, they are so understated yet beautiful. I am thinking about buying a pair.

Caroline

Oh, would go SO nice with my wedding dress!

Bobbie Lynn

I agree with everyone so far. The flower earrings are so beautiful, & the square studs are very practical for everyday use. She does very nice work & these would make a wonderful Mother's Day gift for any Mom, or any day for that matter.

Hugs,
Bobbie Lynn

The earrings are lovely! - especially the flowers!

Jasmine Hodges

I love both sets of earrings but especially the flower ones. They can go from simple to fancy in no time :)

tamar

those are some beautiful sparkling earrings. i really like the way they look together.

larki

What pretty earrings. They look like the real thing and at a fraction of the price. The flower ones are particularly appealing as they are so different and I agree with you about the wearability. They would look perfect for the office or for the evening or just for shopping.

The beautiful knitwear was what attracted me to this site but I must admit those earrings are also rather lovely.

Absolutely love the flowers, don't usually like multiples but I needed to get my ears re-pierced and now I have 2. The flowers would look great in the holes that are too low.

The flowers are especially pretty!

Susan

They would add a sparkle to my day when wearing them!!

justine

Both are pretty, but the flowerbud one is really nice!

Candace Lobby

Both earring styles are very pretty, but the floral earrings are my favortite. I personally prefer studs or something not too large when I wear earrings, so either style appeals to me and would be fun to wear.

teri pastorino

both pair of earrings are so pretty. i am not usually a girly sort of girl, but i love the flower ones. i had almost all my jewelry stolen in a move and have had little desire to replace it. however these would make a nice addition to what little i have.

i will have to check out her site

teri P

Tina

Both pair are really pretty, and I really like the way the flower buds mirror each other so you won't have that one weird side, really nice.

Megmo

Love them - great for every day and the flowers are so adorable - I would wear them in a heartbeat. I will definitely check out the site. Thanks for the intel.

Joyce Maltby

I really like the earrings. They look like something you could wear for dress or casual.

Cindy Lillard

Both styles are very pretty. But i would perfer the studs to wear everyday as I am not the flowery kind of person. I will check out the web site these styles look great. From, Cindy

Barb

What a great idea, thanks for the chance to win.

Susan Horner

I will join the crowd of voices saying that these are beautiful jewelry. I've never had any earrings that weren't carried by Walmart or some other expensive store. You must feel very special when you wear them because they are simply lovely.
Sue

Karen Scott Haggas

How beautifully the flower cluster earrings will be with the delicate lace knitting that is so popular now!!! Lovely and full of light!

Willa Schrlau

The flower earrings are very elegant indeed! Love them!

Kim

I agree that the flower cluster ones are unique and attractive. I think that the studs have the stone set in a little too deep.

Irene Howse

Both are elegant and I would be proud to wear either pair. I would have to hide them from my 15 year old granddaughter who recently had her ears pierced and has already raided my jewelry box.

Mary Holtz

How nice of you to give away such beautiful pieces.

Sandy H.

Both earring designs are lovely. I'd enjoy wearing the flower cluster earrings with casual attire, but on dressier occasions I'd definitely want to wear the Princess studs.

Mary S.

Beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win them as they would be my very first pair.

April MontesHamm

I love the flower earrings as well as the other. But what I love even more is your patterns

Karen T.

These are wonderful. Both pair will go with anything and never look gaudy or out of place.
I went to the LuShae website, and I think I've found Mom's Mother's Day gift. Of course, I might just have to get a pair for myself, too!

Betty Ketner

Beautiful CZ. They have the look and sparkle of high-end jewelry. Anyone would love to wear these.

Mary Bader

The flower earrings are really unique and beautiful. I would enjoy either pair.
