Obsessed with ObsessedJewellery :D

Ok, so I will be the very first person to admit that I am VERY choosey about the jewellery I will buy or wear! I don't really have a reason for this other than that I love unique pieces and things that I often see in shops such as Penney's or even dedicated jewellery shops are just too plain and common for me to wear. I guess you could call me a jewellery snob!

However, one day as I was browsing through my tweets, I seen that a friend of mine on there, Rachel aka Aprettyobsession, had started up her own online jewellery store. Rachel already has her own successful blog and a YouTube channel and I love her style as it's similar to my own so I was compelled to go have a nose at the items she was selling! And OMG, it was like I had clicked onto a page where all my wildest dreams of unique, stand-out, eye-catching, funky jewelled accessories had met and become available to me! I found myself getting so excited that I couldn't focus on what I wanted to look at first - no joke! This rarely ever happens to me but let me tell you, I was wanting to click "buy" on almost everything. What surprised me most was that the gold pieces were even attracting my attention, which NEVER happens me as I am a silver girl all the way! I think I own about two gold things in my whole jewellery collection! But these items weren't your traditional, dare I say, tacky looking accessories, they looked vintage in a way. The kind of pieces you would see selling in higher end boutiques for a fortune. Yet these were unbelieveably reasonable in price! I think pretty much everything on Rachel's site is under the ten euro mark which is a rariety for pieces that are so well made and unique as hers. 

Anyway, I decided I would go for a necklace called "the music lovers necklace", a daintey silver chain with a peachy cello, treble clef note and a little keyboard hanging from it. It had my name all over it as I love jewellery with musical themes and they are so hard to find so I wasn't surprised to see it on the Obsessed Jewellery site. 

I placed my order (which Rachel kindly accepted a Postal Order for as I don't have a PayPal account) and within two days, this beautifully and carefully wrapped little package arrived in my mailbox!

 There was no way the necklace could have gotten damaged as the little box had been carefully wrapped with bubble wrap and the actual necklace inside the box was wrapped in lovely, delicate, pink tissue paper, an added touch of detail and cuteness to the experience!

As expected, the necklace was gorgeous and the quality was noticeable. It actually doesn't have a clasp, instead it simply slips on easily over your head which I didn't know until I received it. However, this is a brilliant idea as any necklace I have ever been unfortunate enough to break had been by the clasp snagging on something so I know that won't happen with this. The necklace itself is strong and of high quality, even the little musical pieces are quite thick, meaning they won't break off easily.

I apologise for the quality of the photos, the lighting wasn't great. The actual colour is a peach/pink although it is showing up very pink here, it isn't. I really love how the necklace sits once it is on (as shown below). It is a perfect length in that it's long enough to go past the nape of your neck, which adds a more lack back style to an outfit, which is what I go for a lot of the time

Music Lovers Necklace - 8 euros (bargain) :)

All-in-all, as you can probably already tell, I am totally in love with Obsessed Jewellery! I regularly snoop the site for new additions and I know that I certainly will be making another purchase soon! My will power is slowly deteriorating by the day haha! 

I strongly recommend you check out this site it you are looking for well-made, stand out pieces of jewellery that are still affordable. I guarantee the service is fast and that Rachel will take the best care of any orders she sends out. Please check her and Obsessed Jewellery out on the links provided below!
