My Latest Etsy Jewelry Purchases
As I get older, I’m buying less and less jewelry — especially the cheap, fast-fashion kind of my youth. Now I tend to find one or two pieces a year that I can add to my collection. Sure, I still love my fun BaubleBar themed earrings, but I’m gravitating more lately towards pieces from Etsy. My jewelry style described in three words would be silver, dainty, and feminine. Both of the shops below specialize in that type of jewelry, so I wanted to review two of my latest Etsy jewelry purchases for those who are looking for something similar.
Five Heart Choker from MAIVEshop
I saw similar heart necklaces all over, but they were so expensive that I couldn’t justify the price or they looked really cheaply made (two opposites, I know). So when I was searching on Etsy and stumbled upon this necklace — and saw it came in silver — I had to click purchase. It’s definitely choker length as mentioned, and I have a delicate/smaller neck and it’s pretty tight on me, so keep that in mind when ordering. I bought the version with 5 hearts, but they also have a 3 heart style if that’s more your style.
Now that I know they make quality pieces, I have my eye on a few more of their pieces, including this cutesy cat necklace, these delicate heart studs, and this hamsa ring.
Tiny Name Bracelet by CaitlynMinimalist
Once you have a kid, you become the type of person who wears items with their names/initials all over it. It’s just a fact. I like simplify though, so a lot of the options out there are just “too much” for my style. That’s why I love the personalized tiny name bracelets from this Etsy shop. I was able to customize my length (for my child-sized wrists) and the font used (which was huge to me since so many options are too cursive for my liking).
The shop has over 900 items on their Etsy account, but a few of my favorites that I haven’t purchased myself yet are this zodiac signet ring, these pearl huggie hoops, and this birthstone necklace.
