A subtle yet striking way to play the asymmetric earring trend, by ALEXI London. Entry form below! You don’t buy any jewellery for months and then two come along at once – as I found when I was gifted two beautiful pairs of earrings by ALEXI London, from their ‘Hug and Kiss’ range. This lovely concept plays on the mismatched earring trend (as seen on Darcey Bussell in the Strictly semi-final, among others), with a mini hollow circle (the hug) of fine sterling silver, gold or rose gold, paired with a delicate cross (the kiss). Both are adorned with a touch of sparkle to make you stand out in the crowd.
I’m delighted to offer the chance to win a pair of these earrings – a lovely treat for your mum, with Mother’s Day coming up – or for yourself, of course! See entry form and Terms and Conditions at the end of this review.
The lucky winner can choose which combination they’d like to receive: two studs or two threaders or one of each; two hugs, two kisses, or one of each, in rose gold or sterling silver.
As a mum of three young boys, I’d got out of the habit of wearing earrings, having been tugged by the earlobe one too many times by a curious baby. But now my youngest is three, I am finally venturing into wearing jewellery every day, and I love how it completely transforms an outfit. I wear my hug and kiss studs every day, and they are perfect for softening up my habitual slightly preppy look (I love a white shirt) – and for prettying up my gym kit!
The drop earrings, or threaders, are lovely for a day-to-evening look: I wore mine to the recent wedding of one of my oldest friends – the perfect place to showcase my new asymmetric beauties. I chose the “hug” or open hoop pair – two sparkly circles to reflect the spirit of the occasion: the eternal love pledged by the exchange of wedding rings (weep!).
After nine years of changing body shape with three pregnancies , like many women, buying clothes is not always a pleasure. But jewellery always makes me feel special, whether I can do up my jeans or not. Thank you to ALEXI London for reintroducing me to an old love and helping me feel a little bit special every day.
Enter now for a chance to win a pair of your choice from the sets above – good luck!
