Sterling Silver “Ball” Earrings: $5

Silver Ball Earrings

I know, I know. I haven’t been particularly attentive to my blog since I launched it. Work has been a little hairy this last month, but I promise to try to keep up a better pace here at Less Than 10.

And so… that brings me to our topic du jour: jewelry. I’ve had many conversations with my girlfriends about “investment pieces” vs. fashion jewelry (Target has really fun of-the-moment pieces) and I’ve concluded that the best items can be both precious and inexpensive. Enter sterling silver. Even though sterling is a precious metal, it’s amazingly affordable. And it’s non-irritating: great if you have sensitive skin like I do.

Of all the earrings in my jewelry arsenal, I wear my sterling silver ball earrings the most. Somehow, they always make me feel dressed up. (People say the same thing about diamond studs, but we’d be hard-pressed to find those under $10!) What love about these earrings is that they don’t fight with any other jewelry you might want to wear at the same time. I have an amazing Links of London necklace (Objets Trouvés) that is definitely a statement piece, and the only earrings that seem to work with it are the silver studs.

Ladies, if you have your ears pierced and don’t already own a pair of these, order them now! You won’t regret it – especially for the price.
