£9.99 for three?? They're just the job for me I lose dozens of earrings and I dont want to wear 'good' ones for work so these are perfect. Thanks for that. smile

i cant imagine how long any real ones would have lasted.
These are ace.

LordPalmerston Mon 24-Feb-14 17:24:53

Do they look real? What a great price.

LordPalmerston Mon 24-Feb-14 17:27:08

no one has ever done a citizens arrest on me and my Lizzy Dukes

What HAPPENED to the ELizabeth duke brand?

LordPalmerston Mon 24-Feb-14 17:27:36

( i thought everyone bought them tbh!)

I rock fake jewelry

Wear with an expensive watch to really pull it off

The hearts do dangle a little and Elizabeth Duke disappeared when the Argos brand was updated.

You should have a look at the diamonique range on the QVC website.

What do you all do to lose so many earrings? They do look good, and if I went through loads of earrings they'd be a bargain, but I'm baffled.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 24-Feb-14 17:51:40

You don't lose real diamond ones because the backs screw on, rather than just push on like normal earrings.

NewBlueCoat Mon 24-Feb-14 17:58:24

Mine don't, Anne, but they do fit securely. I don't think I'd have he necessary coordination to screw backs on!

AmberNectarine Mon 24-Feb-14 19:59:55

I get bored of them half way through the day, remove and put them in my bag. Hey presto - lost.

LordPalmerston Mon 24-Feb-14 20:24:32

My cat paws them off any surface rather moodily.

i bought the three earring set years ago
my dd took the two larger pairs when she got her ears pierced - and she lost a pair grin - she finds them easy to take out with her non-nails as they stand quite proud.

i have qvc diamonique, love them.

my dd guinea-pig grabs earrings out of my ear -ouch shock

LordPalmerston Mon 24-Feb-14 21:40:15

Ouch!! How ?

LordPalmerston Mon 24-Feb-14 21:40:52

Mad lizzy how big are hearts

LordPalmerston Mon 24-Feb-14 21:42:43

Oh I'm sorry. Small. 19mm

WallyBantersJunkBox Mon 24-Feb-14 21:44:03

Because Elizabeth Duke was reportedly the PA the CE was schlepping behind Mrs Argos' back.

Or so a few manufacturers told me back in the day. wink

I lost my real diamond earring in November - was my wedding pressie from DH. Wore them all the time, was bereft without them and now I am scared to put them back on again ... :-(

my tip is to buy childrens studs-the posts are shorter so you can sleep in them without being stabbed
