A review of my Fresh trends Online Body Jewelry clipon cartilage earring

Last week I wrote about my purchase of what I thought were two triple steel illusion clipon cartilage earrings (). Turns out I only purchased one. The earrings were on sale for $1.99. Shipping and handling was $2.99. So I paid $4.98 to cure my curiosity to see how a cartilage earring would look on me.

How the earring looked on the Fresh Trends website

So shiny and sparkly. So opulent. So grand. Okay, I guess I should have expected that you can’t buy opulent and grand for $1.99; but surely you can buy shiny and sparkly for $30, which is apparently the original price for the triple steel illusion clip on fake cartilage earring. But the earring does not look quite so bursting with shiny brilliance in person as in the sale pic. Still, I guess that says more about me and my lack of experience with shopping for jewelry. I’m sure no seasoned shopper would have looked at the picture and expected the actual product to look exactly like it.

My thoughts about my new triple steel illusion clip on fake cartilage earring.

It looks cute. But it’s not something I would expect anyone in their right mind to pay $30 to purchase. The sales page indicated this item retails for $29.99. There is no way. It simply just isn’t possible. Not even $9.99 which was the original mark down price. No disrespect to people who make this product or the people who are selling it; but it doesn’t look worth more than a few cents to me. I would expect a package containing 10 of these for the price I paid for 1. That’s $1.99 for a package of 10. That’s the only thing that would make sense to me. Maybe there’s something I don’t know about the value of steel? But I do think it makes a nice cute little decoration for my ear. Makes me want to shop around for more clip on cartilage earrings. I like that I couldn’t feel it on my ear. That’s always been my problem with earrings. I don’t like being constantly aware of their presence. With these clip-on cartilage earrings I didn’t feel them on my ear at all. I even fell asleep in them. And they stayed on. So all in all it’s an okay product but the price is way over the top. Yes, I know, it’s just $1.99 and I should be embarrassed to be talking about the price being too much when all I spent was $1.99. At least I got something out of it. Whereas when I spend $2 on Powerball lottery tickets I get nothing. But even so, it really does on it’s own look like something that fell off a pen. If it fell off my ear while I was outside no one would see it and pick it up thinking it was a piece of jewelry. But again, and most importantly, it does it’s job. It clips on to your ear and decorates your ear and it stays on even while you sleep. And, in my opinion, it looks very cute.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
