earrings, two pretty pendants and some stainless steel clothes pegs.
EleQueen 925 Sterling Silver Full Prong Cubic Zirconia Flower Bridal Stud Earrings 15mm
They come in a pretty box, but inside is just the pink drawstring bag and some plain wadding which catches on the earrings and does nothing to enhance the look. Of course its the earring we really want but a little velvet padding over the wadding would have really made them stand out better.
Anyway, earrings: They’re in rhodium plated sterling silver, so should be fine for most people with metal allergies, and they are set on a simple post and stud fitting.
They’re designed in a beautiful floral/starburst pattern. There’s a round central stone surrounded by six pointed ovals and on the outer circle there are alternating circles and ovals, making a gorgeous pattern that glitters and sparkles.
The design and the multi faceted stones really complement each other, and I can’t decide whether I want to think of them as floral, as I love flowers and they’re very like the traditional sunflower/daisy type pattern, or starbursts as that just sounds so magical and perfect for winter parties!
These really reflect light perfectly, picking up and pushing back to catch the eye. They’re vibrant but not without a subtlety, they aren’t in-your-face flash but a softer catch the eye pair. I think they’d be perfect for winter xmas and new year parties – though as a sparkle and glitter fan I’d wear them anytime, anywhere 🙂 There’s aslo a small polishing cloth inclded to keep the silver shiny.
Stars: Five, lovely earrings, perfect for xmas parties
Silver Mountain 925 Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Double Cats Pendant Necklace Box Chain 18″
Review from Jeannie’s Reviews on wordpress.com
This is a cute necklace, one that would make a great gift for kids or for adult cat lovers. Its more an everyday necklace than one for special occasions I think.
It comes in a grey velour drawstring bag with a small silver polishing cloth to help keep it shiny. Its made of sterling silver, with high grade CZ stones.
Its a pretty design, mother cat and baby kitten, with the kitten being plain silver and mum covered in tiny black Cubic Zircona crystals.
Its fuss free and that’s the charm, a pretty design suitable for no fuss wear. The silver is plain, highly polished and adds to that simplistic, minimal feeling IMO. Too much embellishment would spoil the charm.
The cats hang loosely from a box link chain with a simple ring clasp.
The sellers state its Nickel-free, Lead-free, Cadmium-free and Hypoallergenic, Good to know for those with metal allergies. They also give these two promises which I’m very impressed with. I believe sellers should stand behind their products in this way, but too few do.
Promised 1:100% Real 925 Sterling Silver.
Promised 2:Any fake after u received, refund full +compensation 2 times money
Tips from sellers:
Caring for Your Sterling Silver Jewelry
Silver should not come into contact with harsh household chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, or chlorine. To avoid scratches, store silver in a lined jewellery box or pouch, as it is prone to tarnish as it naturally reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the air. NB: when first married I nearly had a heart attack when a lovely silver ring, gift from my husband turned black after I’d been cleaning with bleach! Fortunately its easily remedied with some silver polish to remove tarnish. It really does react quickly to bleach.
Stars: Five, cute little necklace
LADY COLOUR – Butterfly Charm – Necklace for Women with Crystals from Swarovski – The Nature collections
This is a gorgeous necklace, one that would make a great gift and its one for special occasions I think, but also suits every day wearing.
It comes in a cream box with a white interior, and that sets it off well and makes it great to give as a gift.
Its a silver coloured metal, though not sterling silver and no information over possible gold, silver or rhodium plating. I can’t find any markings on the necklace to confirm. The sellers state Metal type: Zinc Alloy <Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Nickel (Ni) FREE> but if you’ve metal allergies you need to take care.
At current selling price of £23 I’d expect it to be either sterling silver or plated with gold or similar. I’ve deducted a star for that.
Its really pretty pendant hanging loosely from a simple open link chain with a lobster clasp closer. It has a short chain extension so you can select best length for you. I do like those, hate chains that feel too tight on the neck.
The pendant itself is a beautiful butterfly design, something that always appeals to me. Its composed of an outer open butterfly shape in silver colour metal studded with clear Crystals from Swarovski. In the centre there’s a single beautiful turquoise coloured crystal in a butterfly shape, multi faceted to catch the light and making it really visually appealing and suitable for all ages and occasions.
Its got the simplicity for day wear but the colour and sparkle for special evenings. Paired with a similar coloured dress it will add something special to the outfit.
Crystals from Swarovski arte well known now and all have a very high grade appearance,and catch the light really well.
Stars: Four, a really pretty necklace, great for all occasions but I would like to see a better quality metal to it.
Comfysail Multi-purpose Stainless Steel Clothespins, Clips, Windproof, Flat Clothes Pegs, Pin Against Rust for Laundry, Kitchen, Bathroom, Garden, School, Hospital, Outdoor (Pack of 40 Clips)
Pegs. Simple items but so frustrating. I tend to leave mine on the line and they rust, the plastic degrades and I end up with sharp bits round my washing area. I know I should take them in – but who does??
Not me so these seemed like the answer to my problems.
I’m really impressed with them, they’re small but very, very strong. They won’t come undone in strong winds as my current ones do, making me pick up washing that’s fallen in the dirt 😦 and sometimes needs rewashing.
They are easy to use, a simple clip design and have a great finish, nice and shiny and visually decorative, but with no sharp bits that will snag washing, so great for keeping bulky items like tough denims and sheets on the line but also suitable for delicate lingerie etc.
Of course pegs aren’t just for washing lines but great for keeping things like papers in groups, closing food bags and holding clothes that slip onto coat hangers.
The sellers also included with my pegs 20 of another design, a simple one piece twist peg that also has all the above standards. At this quality price I’ll be recommending them to everyone.
Stars: Five, a bargain at twice the price!!
