Shopping with Kate: Claudia Bradby Haul I

I’ve long been curious about this charming jewelry company. Ever since I heard about Kate’s collaboration with them, I’ve been taken in by their simple, clean and delicate designs.

There is nothing too complicated or overdone in their creations. When I looked at their offerings, I fell in love with the Constantine necklace and matching earrings. They are so gorgeous and no-frills at the same time. I ordered these two pieces one week ago.

Shipping was extremely fast! I received my package on Saturday, just 6 days after ordering. This is quite impressive, considering that I am in the United States and the package shipped from the UK.

It arrived in a white bubble mailer, along with a CB merchandise booklet, the invoice and a letter addressed to me.

The box is beautifully made, very compact and understated in its style.

The back of the box displays the website address.

This is the first company I have done business with that houses their merchandise in pull-out boxes. I think this is a brilliant way to ship jewelry. It keep the jewelry locked in tight with no danger of the lid flying off or jewelry spilling out.

I was sent two velour pouches, each containing the necklace and earrings.

The necklace clasp features a tiny charm with the Claudia Bradby logo etched into it. There is also a darling little seed pearl attached to the very end of the chain.

You’ll notice that the pearls on the necklace are flattened and imperfect. They have a magnificent sheen and luster to them, indicating an excellent coating of nacre.

Here is the booklet I was sent.

I also received a note informing me of the best way to care for my new jewelry.

I adore my new jewelry. I am saving up for the Camellia Amazonite and Rose Quartz Necklace now.  I have grown curious enough about it to want to own it.
