Last Christmas, my aunt gave me a pair of shiny, gold oval hoops from Mejuri. I put them on straight out of the box, and they immediately caught the room’s attention: Everyone from my (discerning) teenage cousin to my (even more discerning) grandmother began complimenting them. It’s been nearly one year since I slipped the Mejuris into my earlobes, and I’m here to tell you two things: (1) the compliments have not stopped, and (2) I haven’t taken them off.
In the past, my earrings have typically come from my mother — I’d “borrow” (take from her drawer without permission) her special pieces from the ’70s and ’80s and spend my days worrying about them falling out. I’ve considered splurging on a vintage solid-gold pair from New Top Jewelry or Popular Jewelry, but they were just too expensive — plus, I figured, I’d worry endlessly about losing those, too. The Mejuris, I realized as soon as I put them on, were the perfect earring solution: They have the look and heft of vintage gold (hence the constant compliments from friends and strangers alike), but they’re comfortable for day-to-day wear (they are, in fact, gold vermeil, meaning they’re made out of sterling silver and are coated with a thick layer of 18-karat gold). Plus, they’re extremely affordable (under $100 even when it’s not a major shopping holiday), which mostly means I can live my life without worrying constantly about losing them.
This Cyber Monday, Mejuri is offering 10 percent off one item, 15 percent off two, and 20 percent off three items or more, which brings the cost of these already attainable hoops down to the low, low price of $63. It’s also the brand’s only sale of the year, so this is the cheapest they’re going to be for the foreseeable future. Buying jewelry can be intimidating, but these hoops are absolutely foolproof.
If you want to take advantage of the bundling deal Mejuri is currently offering — or if you’re looking to get yourself a little something — here are a few other earrings we like from the sale.
