REVIEW: LOVE SUZIE JEWELLERY

*Before I start, please note that these items were very kindly sent to me for review purposes and were not bought by myself.*

A few days ago, the lovely Helen over at Love Suzie Jewellery contacted me and asked me if I would like to review some of their products. If you haven't heard of Love Suzie before, it is a gorgeous little online shop, stocking a mix of modern and vintage handcrafted jewellery.
I have followed Love Suzie on Twitter (@lovesuziej) for a while now, so I already knew that they stocked some gorgeous vintage inspired pieces which would be perfect on my blog and my readers would love!

So, yesterday morning, a gorgeous little package arrived on my doorstep, and inside was this. A lovely candy striped paper bag, with a cute tie string. I'm a sucker for packaging, and this is some of the nicest I've seen from an online shop in a long time. All the little attentions to detail make it all the more special in my eyes!

Inside were three boxes, all individually wrapped in tissue paper, each containing an item of jewellery. Now prior to this, Helen had asked me if there were any items that I liked in particular. I picked out my two favourite pieces from the collection, both Alice In Wonderland inspired, and to my surprise I received not just one, but both of my choices! I was completely bowled over by this as I wasn't expecting to see both there at all!

First up was this gorgeous mini pocket watch on a long chain, called 'I'm Late, I'm Late!'. This is absolutely beautiful, and honestly, pictures don't do it justice.

On the website it is described as a "Fully functioning pocket watch with quartz watch movement strung on an antiqued goldtone chain." It has the most stunning detail, front and back, and even has an open and close mechanism. The chain is around 32 inches long, so it falls at a lovely length, just at the waist.
this costs £14.99, which I think is amazing value, considering you get a fully functioning clock with such gorgeous detail!


Next up was the second of my choices, again from the Alice In Wonderland inspired collection. This piece is called 'Time For Tea' and features a porcelain white and blue cup and saucer at the end of a lovely delicate chain. Again, the pictures just don't do it justice. It is so beautiful and so dainty. I'm really into my little necklaces with pretty little charms at the minute, so this one is completely my style.

The chain on this one is a lot shorter, at 18 inches, but to me this is the perfect length , hanging neatly in the middle of the neck. I am completely in love with this one and can't wait to wear it!
Again, a great price for something so delicate at just £11.99.


Last but not least, I received this gorgeous little Russian Doll necklace, which was a complete surprise as I hadn't requested this one! This is called 'Babushka Babushka' and oh my goodness, it is so sweet! The detail on the charm is so lovely, front and back, with engraved patterns and facial details. Again, this piece is very delicate, and very me.

This has the same chain length as 'Time For Tea' so it sits nicely between the neck and chest area. I know I will sound like a parrot saying this again, but the pictures do no justice, so make sure you check out the website for yourselves for more detailed images.
This piece is extremely affordable at just £6.99. I think I'll be using this one as more of a day to day necklace, as it is very subtle and will go with so many things!


Overall I am very impressed. Everything from the packaging to the jewellery itself is perfect and so well thought out. It's obvious that a lot of time and effort is being put into what they do, and I can honestly say I love each thing I have received.
I will definitely be buying from Love Suzie in the future, as I already have a few other items on my list!
