I had no idea that after my grandma passed away in March, that she would be bestowing upon me one of her best-kept beauty secrets. Grandma Diane had a liking to the finer things in life, and now I know where I get that quality from. But she was one of those people that would spend hundreds of dollars on items she loved that would go untouched or unused.
When my mom was going through her things recently, she found several unwrapped packages filled with earrings. “Simply Whispers” is what each individual packaging read. My mom had one of those a-ha moments where she recalled that Simply Whispers were the earrings my grandma had been wearing for the last 40+ years.
Now I have super sensitive ears. Apparently so did Diane. Unless an earring is 100% real, it can’t touch my ears without them becoming swollen, itchy, red and infected. Does anyone else have the same issue? Diane was the same way. Again, another quality I inherited. But this was about to change.
Simply Whispers is a small yet long-standing company from Massachusetts that has been in business since 1970 and where all products are made in America. They pride themselves on being the go-to hypoallergenic jewelry company, so when we discovered several unworn earrings from my grandma’s collection, I decided to give these a try. After one week, I. WAS. OBSESSED! Honestly, I would put them in my ears in the morning right when I woke up and by the time I got to work around 9am I had completely forgotten I even had earrings in. No irritation, no swelling, no nothing. It may sound dramatic, but this was seriously a life changing discovery for me. Thank you, Grandma Diane.
Now I can finally wear earrings again. I think of earrings as the frosting to any outfit. It completes the entire make up and takes what you are wearing to the next level. Well for the last 23 years, I’ve lacked the right frosting until now. I’ve turned into such a loyal customer that I immediately went to their website and ordered 5 more pairs for myself. If you have super sensitive ears and don’t have copious amounts of money to spend on the real deals, then this is the company you HAVE to try.
They have cuffs, and statement earrings and studs and hoops, and so so much more, oh my! Majority of the pieces range anywhere from $8-$25. That is a steal. I promise you will not be disappointed. You literally just can’t be. I am linking the 5 new pairs I recently bought. I hope you love these babies as much as I do!
Red, White and Blue Tassel Perfect for the Summer! $11
Ivory Hoops My mom thought these were supposed to imitate wood, anyway they are a fun take on a classic hoop. $11
Opal Studs I needed a stud style and my mom’s birthstone is Opal, easy choice. $15
Gold Chain Would be a great pair for mixing and matching metals. $14
