Grace Adele review

A good friend of mine who is a Scentsy consultant started selling Grace Adele. To be perfectly honest, when she first told me about it, I was lukewarm at best about the idea. When she asked me to do a product review, I was tempted to say no but decided to check out the website first, just in case. I'm so glad I did.

In case you did not already know, Grace Adele is a brand in the Scentsy family that focuses on handbags and accessories. Each Grace Adele handbag comes with a slip pocket on the front that you can put one of their coordinating clutches into to give it a pop of color. For the evenings, you can take the clutch out and use it on its own. There are also coordinating accessories and jewelry in the line. Now I will be perfectly honest and upfront with you here- plenty of pieces in the collection are not my style at all. And then there are pearls. Pretty pearls. Lots and lots of pearls. Yes please.

As soon as I saw these gorgeous earrings it was love at first sight. I love pearls and wear at least one piece of pearl jewelry pretty much every single day. They looked a bit dressier than just my standard pair of studs.
how cute would these be for bridesmaids?
I mean how lovely are they? And the best part? They are just $15! The earrings are available in either cream or black pearl and I chose cream. They came in a pretty black and grey floral patterned gift box that looked like it would be perfect for a quick and easy gift.
The earrings themselves are lightweight and very comfortable. They are a bit brighter/whiter than my every day studs and are a bit larger, but not large enough to be a nuisance. They are not heavy at all so after wearing them for a long time, your earlobes still feel fine. (I've worn large earrings that I have had to take off halfway through the night because they just irritated me so much. Not a problem here.)

For size comparison sake- the Grace Adele earrings are on the left and my every day studs are on the right.
After wearing these earrings for about a week, I loved them so much that I decided to visit Caryn's Grace Adele page again and see what other items they offered. I ended up purchasing this necklace.
Pearl Cluster Necklace $55
A few years ago, I received a pearl cluster necklace for Hannukah from a friend of mine that was my go-to necklace for parties, weddings, etc. Really any time I wanted a funner necklace than just a plain strand. I loved it to death. Literally. After it wound up in that great jewelry box in the sky, I searched for months for a similar replacement that did not cost an arm and a leg. When I saw this one, I knew I had a winner on my hands. I wore it with my black J. Crew ponte pants, boots, and black Lilly Pulitzer Fancy Fest Elsa for a date night out in Brussels. It was perfect.

Grace Adele has several pearl pieces out now in their collection. All of the pearl items are available in either cream or black. I'm thinking of getting the studs in black also. After I get this pearl cluster bracelet to match my necklace of course.

I also love this Shay clutch in pink. Perfect for nights out!

Be sure to check out Grace Adele for some great gift options for yourself or someone you love! If you are interested in getting any Grace Adele items, Caryn has set up a party for me under PGMW. I'm doing a giveaway with it and any order that is placed through my party gives you one entry to win the pearl stud earrings in your choice of cream or black.

***Disclaimer: I received the earrings to review and did not receive any financial compensation. I purchased the necklace for myself using my own money.***
