The Look for Less: Dior 'Mise En Dior' Tribal Double-Pearl Earrings

Dior's "Mise En Dior" Tribal Double-Pearl Earrings retail for approximately $400. I'm a bit late to the knock-off game on these because apparently they've been so popular that Dior raised the initial price of $290 to $400 since everyone's been scooping them up. I'd been admiring them on Jennifer Lawrence in the fall 2014 Dior ad campaigns.

And on Rihanna who wore them with an all-pink Dior ensemble - girly with an edge.

The moment I spied these Pearl 360 earrings on BAUBLEBAR.COM, I scooped them up! I will post a pic to Instagram soon. Available in a variety of colors for $28:

Dior pearl earring lookalikes!

Shame on me, because I later stumbled upon these Apt. 9 pear-back earrings for just $7.90 at KOHLS.COM. Hopefully the Baublebar pair will be better quality although I can't say they feel super solid. I wore them for half a day so far and no skin irritation, so that's a plus!

Great twist on a stud earring!

I own four pairs of the Baublebar ones and love them! The one note of warning: the "pearl" ones are very lightweight, but the "bubblegum" studs (e.g. the black back and gold or silver front) are incredibly heavy! The black part is really weighty and I wasn't comfortable wearing them. I'd bet the marble and watercolor ones are similarly heavy.

Very interesting, thanks for sharing this. I got the pearl ones which are very lightweight - on the one hand, they don't feel very sturdy, but on the other hand, they'd be terribly uncomfortable to wear if they were any heavier! I'm glad I got the pearl because I can't seem to wear heavy earrings these days :-)

I love these! I've seen them on a pair and a spare! You can DIY them! xo :-)

I saw a version at Forever 21 too, I think they were around $3.90.

Thanks for sharing! I think I'll try the Apt 9 version. I'll be waiting until I can get 30% off with my Kohl's card in a few days...

Let me know how they look if you do end up getting them!

I bought the Apt. 9 ones and have had them for about 2 weeks. I have wore them several times and had no issues whatsoever with them. They stayed secure and were comfortable. I paid the $7.90 and got a double earning from Ebates.
