A galore of gold accessories greeted me when I opened my parcel from Born Pretty.
Born Pretty first offered me to review their products last month and it took about a month to arrive in my city, they offer worldwide shipping. My haul includes two gold rings and two necklaces. My first impression? Cuties!
Let’s go over them one by one shall we?
On the left is an owl ring featuring a clear crystal gem in the middle and two white opaque white eyes and only one foot has a pink extension. It does look unnecessary, it also cheapens the look. The eyes look uneven. On the right is an emerald bunny ring, it’s gem is ovate and the cut around the gold ring makes it look like it is studded in little crystals which I fancy on top of the four more little stones on the ears. I think it’s a nice touch. Both rings are adjustable which means that I can wear them anytime I like immediately without having to go through resizing them. I particularly like the emerald ring because it is my birthstone and it makes good costume jewellery.
The cat necklace is cute and will make for good everyday wear. The clasp is also attached to an extension the length is similar to that of a choker. It’s very lightweight and I am afraid that the clasp is not so secure, there's a good chance it will fall off before I notice it. The pendant is cute and is about half the size of a 5 Peso coin. I like that it's shiny and clean, not to mention super adorable!
At first look, the design is rather attractive and it comes in an antiquated gold look. What put me off was the presence of some mouldy substance on some branches of the pendant. Otherwise it could have been a very nice necklace that could add a nice touch to a plain tee. I tried cleaning it with dry tissue paper but it won't come off. It also has a leaf attached to the chain, I don't really know what effect it should have achieved though. What I really like about this necklace though is that it has many inspiring inscriptions written on it, my favourite words are trust, concern and believe.
Looking back at the pieces, it looks like it is a nature haul with a bunny, owl, cat and a tree. I like the selection sent to me and these pieces are glamorous that can add nice details to even the simplest of outfits. I will be mixing and matching them soon. My personal fave is the cat necklace and I have a soft spot for the emerald bunny ring because it's my birth stone, talk about biased. =)
