Jewellry and a ladies watch

EleQueen 925 Sterling Silver CZ AAA Button Cream Freshwater Cultured Pearl Infinity Bridal Jewellery, Necklace, Earrings Set
Product Details

This is a beautiful set, comes in a white and blue presentation box and will make a great gift – or treat yourself 😉

The earrings and pendant match and each have a beautiful genuine freshwater pearl in the centre. These are natural items so won’t be identical but are very well matched. I love the soft, subtle sheen of pearls, for so long thought of as an old ladies gem and yet now used very well on contemporary jewellry
The chain is a simple open link one with a ring clasp, and a section to extend the length if needed.

The set has a high polished Rhodium Plated finish, over a base of 925 Sterling Silver which helps keep the shine longer. Both earrings and the necklace carry the S925 mark, an international symbol for Sterling Silver.

Both the pendant and the earrings consist of a single pearl set in an offset figure of eight setting, studded with tiny cubic zirconias. This hangs from a small circle also studded with gems.
Stars: Five, great gift for yourself, a friend or a lover .

 

Sterling Silver Tri-Colored Stackable Rings with Cubic Zirconia – Silver, Yellow Gold, Rose Gold

Product Details

This trio of rings comes in a pretty red velvet case, making it a great gift.

The rings are made of sterling silver , and each have S925 stamped on the inner, that’s the international recognised marking for sterling silver. I don’t know how they get the yellow and rose colourings, maybe plated in gold?
They are each studded with tiny Cubic Zirconias right round and can be worn singly, or as a duo or trio.
You could share them between three friends – a kind of jewellry connection similar to the heart necklaces we used to have when I was a kid.

They’re a pretty collection, simple but sometimes simple and understated embraces the “less is more” philosophy.

Stars: Five, great gift for yourself, for a lover or to share among best friends.

LADY COLOUR – Love you, Mom – Necklace for Women with Crystals from Swarovski – CRYSTAL HEART collections

Product Details

 

 

This is a beautiful set comes in a white and gold presentation box, and will make a great gift for your mum. There’s also a pretty pink velour drawstring bag to add to the ease of giving as a gift.

The chain is an open link one, twisted to give a kind of rope effect. It has a lobster claw clasp, and a section to extend the length if needed. 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 £29.99 I’d expect it to be either sterling silver or plated with gold or similar. I’ve deducted a star for that.

The actual pendant is really pretty, with the heart hanging from a tiny silver four leaf clover effect pendant, consisting of four hearts each pointing inwards and studded with three clear crystals. That leads in to the heart which is really beautiful. A large, heavy crystal, beautifully faceted to let the colours of soft green through to deep rich blue show through, and they change according to how they catch the light. That’s really lovely.
Along the base of the heart the word Mum is picked out in a simple silver overlay, with the U being a heart with a tiny clear gem inside.
The back is a silver coloured open lattice pattern effect, letting the silver back of the heart show through.
Its a very unique looking pendant and perfect for mum for Christmas, or looking ahead to mothers day 2017!

Stars: Four, better quality metal and this would be a five. It really is eye-catching.

Taylor Cole Ladies’ Quartz Crystal Dial Gold Stainless Steel Band Elegant Wrist Watch

Product Details
This watch comes in a smart presentation box, with a black outer sleeve and a cream and silver inner box. Makes it special if its to be given as a gift.
Its got Japanese quartz movements, doesn’t mean much to me but a quick Google search tells me “Japanese quartz movement is a mechanism for keeping time based upon the regular vibration of tiny section of quartz crystal. The “Japanese” part of the name refers to where the mechanism was manufactured, not where the crystal originated from.”
The bracelet is stainless steel and is gold coloured to match the watch face. Not sure if that’s a gold plating or some way of colouring the metal – there isn’t further info but stainless steel is quite low on the allergy scale anyway. As someone prone to skin irritations that’s something I always look for.
The bracelet is very large, I’ve wrists that measure six and a half inches, and had to move this high up to where my arm measures almost eight and a half inches to stop it slipping. The links can be removed to make it smaller, but it’s also large enough for those ladies with bigger wrists. Makes a pleasant change 😉
The face is simple, but the gold colour and the gems that surround it give it a lift into decorative but not overly fussy. Perfect for everyday and nights out.
Its a surprisingly heavy feeling watch, with a large face and a thick bracelet, yet doesn’t look clumsy and bulky. Most ladies watches tend to be small, delicate types, and this looks more robust and good for everyday wear. It isn’t water proof, or suitable for showering and swimming, but can stand up to the occasional splashes that happen daily.

Stars: Five, a good looking but understated watch

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
