The tribal pearl earring is practically a new classic. I ordered the $7 dollar steal first to see if I liked the style. Then I decided I just had to compare the two. They are the same size and both made of imitation pearl material. The take away is that the Dior earrings sit slightly different in my ear. The Dior’s has more of a robust clip to them. My recommendation is that is you like the look of the tribal pear start with the $7 earrings. Then go from there. There are so many exciting new Dior designs on the market with the new creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, I can hardly wait to see what’s next.
