Shopping with Kate: Heavenly Necklaces Haul II

I took advantage of the Winter 2016 special offers to buy a few things I’ve been wanting.

I discussed my thoughts on HN’s packaging and customer service in this post.  Therefore, I will  only focus on the products I bought this time around and not the parcel wrappings or shipping service.

Riviera Flower “Diamond” Leverback Earrings

These are so beautiful and delicate. They are not heavy at all and add lots of sparkle without being too showy. The regular price for these is £62. I got them on Special Offer for £31. However, now that the January sale is over, the price has now increased again.

I wanted some more detachable drops, so I chose the prasiolite and indigo quartz ones.

As with the Purple Amethyst drops, I love these and I am so happy I chose them. My detachable drops collection is growing quickly! These cost me £38 each instead of the usual £46.

Finer Gold Gemstone Drops can be found here.

Shopping with Kate: Heavenly Necklaces Haul I

I’m really excited to share with you my first purchase from Heavenly Necklaces. Even if Kate had never worn their pearl and diamond earrings, I would still be drawn in by their gorgeous merchandise.

The package shipped rather quickly. The estimated delivery time for international addresses is about 2-3 weeks. Mine took a little less than 2 weeks.

It arrived in a small plastic mailing bag. The jewelry was nicely wrapped in black tissue paper and was taped shut with a Heavenly Necklaces logo label. Each piece was placed in a black drawstring bag, and each bag was wrapped in bubble wrap. Inside each drawstring bag the jewelry item was wrapped very securely in black tissue paper. I’m pleased with this because it’s a more environmentally friendly method of packaging (I never know what to do with tiny cardboard jewelry boxes).

The Fine Eternity Ring

I am not married nor do I plan on getting married, but I do love the look of diamond eternity bands. It’s such a simple yet stunning way to add sparkle to one’s finger. I noticed this one was marked down by 15%, so I decided to get it.

It fits my middle finger.

You can better see the pretty sparkle of it here:

And here are the famous “pearl and diamond” earrings, owned by both Kate and the Countess of Wessex.

I ordered the Medium size (9mm). I photographed these in the Zales box because it was hard to get a decent photo by simply laying them on the surface. You couldn’t see the front of the earring. These don’t come with any box, in case you’re wondering.

I wasn’t sure if I should get these at first. I didn’t know if they would suit me. I’m so happy I decided to get them because they really are amazing and versatile. I can wear them with pretty much any outfit, and depending on how little or much jewelry I wear they can go with casual or dressy outfits. They’re beautiful and I can see why Kate chose them. 🙂

I am really delighted with my order. I will definitely be buying more from Heavenly Necklaces. 

 

Heavenly Necklaces The Pearl and Diamond Earrings

These are the earrings that launched a small jewelry company into the spotlight.

From the website: “This picture really doesn’t show just how beautiful these resin pearl and diamond CZ pearl drop earrings really are – especially for bridal wear or on the balcony at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. As a result they’ve suddenly proved…rather popular!

The graduated ‘diamond’ stones form the total length of these wonderful earrings at approx 30mm, including the 9mm pearl.  They really are lovely – very popular with brides, and we always feel honoured to be represented at such an important occasion!”

It should be noted that these are not real pearls. Any pearl not coated in nacre is an artificial pearl.

It comes in two sizes: 9mm and 11mm. It looks Kate is wearing the 9mm.

The earrings are made of three cubic zirconia studs set in silver and attached by silver links. At the bottom is a silver cap to which a resin pearl is attached.

Kate made the whole world aware of Heavenly Necklaces when she wore these to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

She also wore them to the viewing of her wedding dress at Buckingham Palace in July 2011.
