For as long as I can remember, I've dreamt of owning something from Tiffany's, and these earrings have been on my wish list for the last five years or so. At the end of May this year I flew off on my second trip to Las Vegas with my sister, and after a little bit of peer pressure from her, emerged from the Tiffany's store in the Bellagio with these beautiful Return to Tiffany Mini Heart Tag Earrings.
There is something about the duck egg blue packaging of Tiffany's jewellery that feels very special, no matter what it is that you're buying. Despite purchasing one of the cheapest items in the store, the sales assistant took care to package them properly, and tie that infamous white ribbon around the little blue box. Since purchasing these earrings I've only dared to wear them once, but I've spent a lot of time admiring the beautiful box and pouch which they're enclosed in.
The Return to Tiffany Earrings are sterling silver, hence the 925 engraved on the hearts, which refers to the quality of the silver used. They're marked with the classic "Please return to Tiffany & Co New York" motif - which I love - and even the butterfly backs are marked T&Co. The heart shape gives these earrings a softer, more feminine edge, as they're quite a plain design in comparison to some of Tiffany's more exquisite items. These earrings are actually much smaller than I first imagined they'd be (around the size of the nail on my little finger), meaning that they sit really nicely and discretely on the ear lobe.
Although I won't be splashing out on any more Tiffany & Co purchases any time soon - it's way too far out of my price range - I'm so happy with these earrings and really glad that I finally invested in them after so long. I'll definitely get my use out of them over the years, and think they'll add the perfect finishing touch to many an outfit.
