  1. Look at my lovely personalised peridot bangle

    I was very honoured to recently choose an item from the website LuLu Winter for review.  I’d not heard of the website before and was instantly pleased with what I saw.  LuLu Winter is a ‘premium online jewellery boutique’ whose pages are filled to the brim with the most beautiful contemporary collections.

    The website is founded by father and daughter duo Peter and Louise Myson whose aim was to ‘stock a unique combination of classic and cutting-edge branded jewellery, offering women everywhere a standout alternative to the standard high-street offering’.  They have certainly exceeded this intention stocking an incredible number of designer brands including Coeur De Lion, Mishca Jewels, Rodgers & Rodgers, Muru, Bulatti and so many more.

    Review: Chrysalis Good Fortune Bangle from LuLu Winter

    I was particularly taken by the Muru necklaces.  The designs are modern with a quirky twist.  Celebs such as Caroline Flack and Pixie Lott have been spotted wearing their appealing up to date designs.  My favourites just have to be the cherries, anchor, cupcake and purple jade stone pendants.  Beautiful!

    Although very tempted, necklace wearing can sometimes prove difficult with a toddler in tow so I opted for a Chrysalis bangle instead.  The Chrysalis jewellery is highly versatile and can be totally personalised to each wearer.  The bangles can be worn alone for a minimal look or stacked high to create a cool layered look.  The bracelets symbolise different spiritual energies making a perfect gift.  I liked the look of their Good Fortune collection and it seemed most appropriate to pick my August birthstone, peridot.

    Bangles can usually be rather large on my small wrists, but the Chrysalis collection is sized so I was able to select a small.  Perfect!  The bangle is made from rhodium plated brass so promises to keep its shine.  The bangle has two disc charms.  The first is encrusted with 37 sea green coloured Swarovski crystals to represent the August birthstone peridot.  These crystals really catch the light and sparkle magnificently!  The second charm is engraved with the unique properties of peridot; cheer, life, luck, energy, passion, wonder and karma.  The back of the discs are engraved with the brand name Chrysalis and a teeny butterfly.

    The bangle came impressively fast (free first class same day UK dispatch on all orders) and was packaged lovingly in a branded suedette pouch drawstring bag.  The bangle was wrapped carefully in tissue paper inside so it truly felt like opening a gift.  A card was attached by a ribbon outlining the spiritual properties of the represented stone.  A Chrysalis bangle really would make a perfect birthday present!

    The bracelet really is as stunning as the website picture.  This extremely charming bangle has been settling incredibly well in its more permanent location; my arm!

    Overall I am very impressed with the selection at LuLu Winter, the service, delivery and packaging!  I’ve just noticed they also stock some adorable children’s jewellery so I’ll also be popping back once Bella is a little older!
