Olivia Accessories jewellery review

*** Don't miss my giveaway right here on my blog where you can win the sametwo fabulous pieces of jewellery from Olivia Accessories ! ***

A little while ago, I saw a tweet  go by from Olivia's Accessories @oli_accessories, asking for bloggers to review some of their jewellery. I headed off to have a look and liked what I saw so I sent them an email. A little while later, a package arrived from the postman and, when she saw what was inside, Sophie squealed and begged to have them ! I said maybe we could share them !

First up was this Gold Spiky Necklace which I think looks incredibly funky. The website has the following information : "GOLD LOOK SPIKY FRINGE NECKLACE WITH ADJUSTABLE SIZE CATCH, COLOUR – GOLD, MEASUREMENTS – LENGTH: 25CM".  Now, one piece of constructive criticism that I would make about the website is that it's a bit lacking in information. The necklace costs £14 so you can bet your bottom dollar that it's not solid gold or even gold plated, but beyond that, you don't really know what you're buying. I don't have a problem with that but I know some people are allergic to certain metals so it would be good to have a bit more information about the composition of the products.

The necklace is lovely and chunky - Sophie actually found it a bit too heavy so I might actually get to keep this one after all ! - and has an attractive burnished gold appearance so it looks vintage, rather than overly bright and shiny. The chain and clasp are very sturdy too, which I was impressed with.

But the one that had us both oohing and aahing was this spectacular Feather Bangle, which costs £16. The website write-up says : "SILVER AND CRYSTAL LOOK HINGED BANGLE, COLOUR – SILVER AND WHITE, MEASUREMENTS – LENGTH: 7CM, WIDTH: 4.5CM". Despite being chunky, it's amazingly light and the spring-loaded clasp makes it really easy to put on and take off. It's absolutely beautiful and had lots of people commenting on it when I wore it. It's comfortable enough to be worn day-to-day but would really set off a little black dress for a glamorous night out too. It would be perfect with a wedding dress too.

There are plenty of other pieces to choose from though, including earrings, clutch bags, rings and bridal jewellery, so it's well worth going to see what takes your fancy. International delivery is available and they offer free first class delivery within the UK.

star rating : 4.5/5

RRP : £16 for the Feather Bangle, £14 for the Spiky Gold Necklace
