Diamond & Sapphire Stud Earrings Dupe - Affordable 'Party Season' Art Deco Vintage Jewellery

Diamond & Sapphire Cluster Marquise-Cut Art Deco Vintage Earrings

Tis the season of gift giving, and whilst I get such a buzz from finding the perfect gifts for my friends and family. I really feel like I deserve a little gift from me, to me, and a pat on the back for getting this far with blogmas too - it truly is a Christmas miracle!

So when I was browsing round all the gifts in TK Maxx during my lunch break, and I happened to stumble upon these gorgeous little earrings by Contessa Di Capri, I had to snap them up with my new found 'treat yo'self' attitude. My full time job is actually based in a jewellers, so I'm not stranger to jewellery and I know what I like!

Set in sterling silver (a must for me when it comes to jewellery, I can't cope with anything that's going to be leaving a green mark on my skin!) there's a mixture of blue and white cubic zirconia designed to mimic little diamonds and sapphires. With a marquise-cut centre stone, there's a cluster of blue stones around the edge, which gives the earrings a real art-deco vibe. Plus if you were to wear them horizontally rather than vertical, they'd kind of look like eyes, with maybe even an Eye of Horus Egyptian vibe to them too.

As with anything in TK Maxx it can often be hard to track down multiples of items, as they're usually end of line stock so I can't link them for you guys, but I'd always recommend having a little browse around you nearest TK Maxx as they do have a very pretty variety of contemporary jewellery pieces. These stud earrings only cost me £12.99, which I think is incredible considering the detail, sparkle and the fact they're sterling silver.

I'm usually not one for blue at all, preferring emerald gemstones over sapphires, but with cobalt blue having been such a huge colour this year, I'm open to exploring the hue! Here's a few gorgeous sapphire and diamond rings I've seen online that show just how great of a dupe these earrings are for fine jewellery!
