Shopping with Kate: Catherine Zoraida Haul I

After many months of saving and scrimping, I finally managed to make my very first Catherine Zoraida purchase!

It took about 11 days to reach me from the UK (I live in New York City). It arrived in a large UPS envelope. Inside the envelope was this fuchsia foil envelope.

This is everything that was in the envelope.

I received two black velvet earring boxes, a Zoraida booklet, a Zoraida business card and a handwritten note from Catherine herself.

It was so lovely of Catherine to include a note she wrote herself. It is a really splendid gesture of appreciation, to let her clients know she truly values our patronage.

The business card (the back of it is the teal image you see above).

And the gorgeous catalog I was sent.

The first page features a statement from Catherine.

The subsequent pages feature product photos of current, available merchandise.

The earrings on the right hand bottom corner are the ones I purchased. šŸ™‚

The back of the catalog includes a slot for the cards I was sent.

Here are the Double Leaf Earrings, worn by Kate.

I can see why Kate chose these! They are stunning, lightweight, swing nicely and glitter the same way they do in the press photos. You can see that they are somewhat bent. In the media photos I thought they looked like two flat leaves, but I can see now that is not the case. I thought they would be a little heavy, but they’re not. They are just perfect. If you have thought about buying them, I highly recommend that you do.

They come on a French hook.

The second pair of earrings I purchased are the Hibiscus Sweet Nectar Stud EarringsĀ

I am very impressed with the attention to detail on these earrings. They truly look like mini hibiscuses dipped in liquid gold.

I took a side shot so you can see the tiny gold style in the center.

I am thrilled with my purchase. I absolutely will be a repeat customer with Catherine Zoraida, and I recommend them if you are looking for high quality jewelry.
