Emerald ring, jewelry box and two pandora style bracelets
Mnemosyne Margot 14k White Gold Plated 925 Sterling Silver Emerald, Bridal, Unique Emerald Engagement ,Emerald Gold Ring, Christmas Gift
I love jewellery but real gems are so expensive. When I saw the description of this I was a bit sceptical – Lab created emeralds? Surely that’s just a fancy name for some imitation type. A web search revealed though that these are genuine emeralds, almost indistinguishable from tradition ones by all but top jewellers. Of course not only are they far cheaper, but from an ethical view far better than the damage done to the environment and the associated dangers to people of traditional mining.
There’s an excellent article online from a site called jewelrywise.com and I’ve copied this from it They’re not gem imitations; lab-created gemstones are the real deal. They are grown in a laboratory but are identical chemically, physically and optically to natural gems.
Emeralds have always appealed to me – they’re a traditional birthstone for these born in April,(me!) along with diamonds – maybe that’s why I have champagne tastes 🙂 but sadly only cider pockets – and sometimes just apple-juice pockets! Now though real gems are within any ones reach.
This ring is so pretty, sterling silver plated with 14K white gold, the trio of Emeralds sit in a line across the top with two tiny diamond type stones at each side. ( I don’t know exactly what they are but they set the emeralds off very well)
The central stone is larger than the two at the sides, and all three are rounded but with cut edges that catch the light and show the lovely deep green hue off to its best. Looking underneath they each go to a point at the other end.
The setting looks very secure – having lost stones in the past I tend to look at that now….They really are attractive and make for an incredible value ring.
It comes in a lovely dark brown leather effect box, with contrast white stitching and a black velvet interior. Its a ring anyone would be proud to own.
Stars: Five, gorgeous ring, perfect for any jewellery lover.
Feibrand Faux Leather Jewellery Box Woven Pattern Pink
This box is a decent size, giving plenty of room to store all your jewellery, and hopefully stopping you from doing what I do, taking it off and leaving it in odd places….Having it stored properly makes it easier to find when you next want to wear something instead of foraging through random drawers around the home.
It comes in a really vibrant pink – a colour a bit too in-your-face for me but one I know the grandkids will love. Its personal taste again 😉 I like some things a little more subtle, and this is loud and proud Pink!
Its PU leather – something I looked up recently to find it is leather but bonded to man made fibres in a special way. It looks and feels like leather. Surprising what you learn from reviewing, last couple weeks its been PU leather, silk making and the difference between types and Lab created gems stones
This box has a pretty woven appearance, and has two brass effect claps to close, and a carrying handle, making it look like a tiny suitcase. In a different colour I’d love it, but its perfect as it is for others.
Its padded inside and has a myriad of storage compartments to keep everything tangle free – not the usual mess of chains and earrings caught in bracelets when you dump everything on a flat surface….*blush* It’s got a removable insert in the top, revealing a second storage compartment plus a pull out drawer n the base. There’s also an elasticated pouch under the mirror. Its perfect for grandkids or adults who love all things Pink.
Its a great value case, with storage that’s been well thought out and will store properly everything most people have in the way of jewellery.
Stars: Five, perfect for pink lovers to keep jewellery safe.
Wowl Love Safe Chain Silver Plated Charm Bracelet, Pink Cubic Zirconia, Flower Lampwork Charm Beads, Bracelets
Pandora style bracelets seem to have become a coveted item over the last couple of years, and this Pandora style one is really pretty. It comes in a choice of colours, a range of blues, pinks and blacks in varying proportions.
The one I have has several really pretty charms on it, ranging from simple alloy moulded beads, some that are enamelled, some Austrian crystal beads ones and some beautiful hand made Lampwork glass beads, all in pretty contrasting shades of pink and blues. The beads are held on a silver plated snake chain.
It feels very robust and able to withstand wearing for long periods. I like that its got a chain for secondary security. I tend to put jewellery on and leave it, leading to many broken chains so this is something I’m always aware of, and a bonus for me.
It comes in a pretty black flock drawstring bag and will make a pretty birthday or Christmas gift. I know many people who would love to have this.
Stars: Five, very attractive bracelet.
