Every month Fair Ivy sends a handmade find with every other month including a jewelry surprise.
This was a jewelry month so let’s open up our mysterious packet and see what’s inside.
Three Gold Rings Necklace from Amanda Deer Jewelry
Amanda Deer writes, “I set out to create pieces that are simple, chic and wearable every day- tiny little statements that add just a touch of glam to any outfit. My line features dainty necklaces and bracelets, some inspired by nature and others inspired by faith and family. I hope you enjoy this dainty 14kt gold filled three ring necklace, handmade by me in my studio.”
Now this necklace on its own is lovely and there is just one reason I didn’t give it a “love” verdict. It is super similar to necklaces Fair Ivy sent to subscribers previously. In the past we’ve received not one, but two necklaces with circle charms. One had one circle and another had two. While this one has three, it still seems redundant. I’m particularly disappointed because Amanda Deer has so much amazing stuff on her website that is at the same price point and offers much more interest. (Like this amazing crescent necklace). I know Fair Ivy may not be considering the jewelry designs they sent out before their hiatus, but they should keep in mind that long term customers will have the similar pieces and be disappointed to have three necklaces that all look alike.
I paid $36.95 (including shipping) and with a retail price of $32 (excluding shipping) I pretty much break even. I love dainty jewelry and the necklace is lovely, I just wish we’d gotten a different Amanda Deer design—one that subscribers hadn’t seen before.
What is your jewelry style? Are you a statement kind of girl or a daintier lady?
