I am a huge fan of charms, ranging from pandora style bracelets to fossil style chunking hanging charms so when I had the chance to try out one of the Create Your Own Necklace’s* from J & S Jewellery it took me less than about fifteen minutes to run to their website and have a nosy.
Considering the vast choice of charms the whole process was so quick I had made up my necklace complete with seven charms in less than minutes and it was already processing. When you enter the website you can choose the colouring of the chain then it’s a case of dragging any charm you like onto the necklace to see what it looks like and it’s really that simple. With a range of charms including multiple initial styles, large single coloured birthstones, stars with little birthstones embedded in them and a number of other charms the only tricky bit was the choice.
To get a good idea of the range I chose seven charms across the whole range including an initial, a large blue stone (designed as the September birthstone but I never pay attention to those), two stars with stones (the February purple and the January red), a large open star, a beautiful key and a really pretty larger circular cut out pattern charm. Can you believe that inclusive of the chain and all the charms this only came to £30? You could pay just £15 for a chain and two charms to begin with so they’d make awesome Christmas/ Secret Santa presents.
From the second I made my purchase it only took 2 days for me to receive the necklace, and especially at this time of year that’s’ crazy, almost Amazon Prime levels of shipping. The necklace arrived in a little pouch housed on a card to showcase the charms and I have to admit considering the price I was shocked at how high quality it all looked. Sometimes when you buy costume jewellery which is plated it can look cheaper but this is definitely not the case. All of the charms are beautiful but the key is definitely my favourite, I don’t know where my obsession with keys comes from.
