So what were my options? So many to choose from that it has literally taken me several visits to this well crafted website before I made up my mind. They offer everything from a "surprise box" for $29.95 that features 3 choice items (necklace, earrings and a bracelet) curated just for you without the need to sign up for a year round subscription to the individual items (with necklaces from $16.80 to $50). Not too bad.
I was really considering the "surprise box" but there are no returns and you really never know what you are going to get. While I loved probably 70% of the items they have for sale, I would likely be the one who ended up with 3 items from the 30% I did not like, haha. So I steered clear and decided to buy two gorgeous statement pieces that popped with color and conveyed a timelessness that I loved about them perfect for pairing with jeans and a t-shirt or a night on the town (I hope).

First up, I chose the Astaire Drop Earrings in Emerald Green for $16.00. These earrings look like something you'd see Lady Mary from Downtown Abbey wearing.
Fingers crossed that they look as amazing in person as they do in the photograph.
|Isadora Necklace. (c) sparklepop|
Interestingly, these were two of the few items that had detailed descriptions listed on the website whereas other items were blank with no information available.
FYI - if you tend to prefer silver like I do, you will find it difficult to find many pieces that do not have at least some gold coloring.
I am excited to get my new pieces of jewelry in the post soon (free shipping in the U.S.) and will give a detailed review once I do. Until then, enjoy shopping ladies and thanks again Mr. Joe Zee (& Fab Life Show) for the recommendation and coupon! And gentlemen, perhaps this might be the perfect spot to find something unique and fun for your lady for Valentine's Day?
Disclaimer: I received a $40 coupon from The Fab Life Show that went towards my sale but all opinions and purchases are my own.
