Recently I was contacted by a company called Henryka who are specialist’s in hand crafted silver and amber jewellery. I had never heard of the company before so I was intrigued when they contacted me and went straight to their website to check out what they have on offer. I was pleasantly surprised by their large and diverse selection of jewellery. The reason they had contacted me was to get my honest opinion on their products and do a product review. This was the first time since setting up my blog that I have been contacted by a company to do a review. I decided to go ahead with it as I felt that the company fitted in with my niche and thought some of you guys would be interested in discovering their affordable range of jewellery.
After looking through the site, I saw a few pieces that caught my eye but this Cherry Amber and Silver Half Scroll Heart necklace* was certainly my favourite. Usually I don’t opt for silver jewellery but as I am growing older I am developing an appreciation for ‘real jewellery’ and wanted to expand my collection. You might be wondering what I mean when I say ‘real jewellery’? Well, the majority of what I own is costume jewellery that I have picked up at inexpensive prices from Penneys, New Look or Forever 21. Currently, I don’t have much proper jewellery, only my watch, Pandora bracelet and a ring my mum bought me for my 21st. But now I have this silver and cherry amber necklace from Henryka to add to my collection!
This necklace is made up of two contrasting halves, one in a teardrop dark cherry amber colour and the other with an intricate silver scroll design. It is really a lovely and interesting piece, it is simple yet unique, which is what I think Henryka are aiming for in all of their individual designs. As it is silver, the chain and clasp are quite delicate so I have to be very careful when putting it on and taking it off.
In terms of styling, I think this would look great styled with a simple skater style dress for a dressed up evening outfit or even for a ball if you are looking for something simple and not too fussy to complement your dress. It would also look equally as chic and effortless teamed with your favourite pair of jeans, a simple cami and a statement blazer for a casual day option.
What do you guys think of the piece I picked? What’s your favourite from the Henryka collection? I look forward to hearing all your thoughts, just comment below, on Twitter or on my Facebook page.
