I freely admit that when I think of turquoise earrings, I never think of tidy, wear-with-everything studs. I always sort of mentally categorise my turquoise into the statement jewellery category - even the smaller pieces. One of my working theories is that this is because the vibrant color of turquoise has so much presence. In fact, that presence is one of the reasons I love it so much, especially as I get older and all of the color seems to be washing out of my face and hair like a set of watercolor paints left out in the rain. But, I digress.
Whatever the reason, I am so glad that online retailer Shop LC offered to send me this pair of 14 karat yellow gold Arizona sleeping beauty turquoise stud earrings. They lend a vibrancy to a look without having to scream from a clifftop, and they also work really nicely with some of my other turquoise pieces. It's fair to say that they've settled into their new home quite nicely.
Shop LC has an interesting success story behind it. The company was originally launched in 2007 as The Jewelry Channel, a name many of you may remember. Of course, 2007 was not long before the economy took a full-on face plant into the great economic slop bucket, and The Jewelry Channel fully expected to liquidate their assets and close their doors. As a part of their strategy to mitigate their losses, they formed the Liquidation Channel - the "LC" in Shop LC. However, instead of scraping-up what they could of their company and retreating into the ether, they actually experienced steady growth as the Liquidation Channel, rebranded this year as Shop LC, and..well…here we are!
I love a good beat-the-odds success story, don't you?
