Cherry Diva Black Friday Purchases and Review

On Black Friday I decided to treat myself on the Cherry Diva website when they offered a special 50% off discount. I had already browsed before hand and knew roughly what I wanted to go for. For me, sterling silver is a must, because I have sensitive skin. So I searched the Cherry Diva website for all items under this heading and then made my final choices…

Something that always catches my eye are unique designs that don’t look anything like your regular high street jewellery brands. I always try and be an individual, I like to think my style evolves from my loves in life and not what I see the majority of people buy.

I absolutely love an unusual necklace, and this one stood out to me as I scrolled on the website. The details and the purple stone, were what won me over this order.

When my order arrived I was very happy with it. The products were delivered in purple organza bags which were the perfect touch to my choices. The delivery time was also excellent considering it was the black Friday weekend.

I’m a sucker for going for anything purple or blue because they are my favourite colours. Both of my choices this time around were to do with the stone of Amethyst. I decided on the ring and a necklace, because the ring was finally back in my size after I eyed it up in the Summer months.

My final Review for this Necklace and the order as a whole is;
Quality 5/5
Value for Money 5/5
Appearance 5/5
Comfort 5/5

Quality; This necklace is sterling silver, good quality and well made.
Value for Money; I had a discount code of 50% off, which made this necklace excellent value for money.
Appearance; Both unusual and unique looking, this necklace is now a firm favourite of mine. It’s design is eye catching and pretty.
Comfort; The necklace is an excellent length for my neck size, and I am very happy with how comfortable it is against the skin.

Graduated Lobe Piercings – Styles and Jewellery

Graduated Lobe Piercings

I made the decision many years ago to have more than one piercing in my ear lobes. And nowadays I’m rather glad because it’s on trend, and also grateful of the choice of jewellery that is available for me to wear.

Examples of the styles that I have come across more recently include a variety of shapes and also varying metals. I always prefer to purchase 925 sterling silver jewellery due to my sensitive skin, and that is what kind of jewellery will feature in my post today.

I will make a list of all the items shown within my blog post, so that if you wish to purchase any yourself you will find the links at the end of the page.

Graduated lobe piercings have been becoming more and more popular within the last five years or so. With both celebrities and regular people alike making the choice to adorn a variety of jewellery on their ears. Graduated piercings are now common on other parts of the ears now as well, such as cartilage.

So how do I wear mine? Well I normally take one particular symbol or style and wear it in all three of my piercings. I have more recently branched out into wearing various symbols all together, and I think this look can make you seem more individual, even pretty unique depending upon the jewellery, the possibilities for earring combinations are endless.

Styles and Jewellery

Any earrings can be included to make your lobes a graduated style, but usually they are earrings of the same type but in different sizes or metals. It can also be symbols that are similar and can be worn specifically in that combination, such as a space theme with a sun, moon and star, for example.

I don’t think you can go wrong with stars, and I wear them regularly. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like stars and I often get compliments about mine.

These cute ones in the image below range in size from 3mm, 4mm and 5mm. They are available on Amazon UK from Heather Needham Silver.

dsc00438procswThis seller also sells a set of a sun, moon and star, as well as just a star and moon. I like the pieces in my next picture because it means you can add a further earring of your choice if you have a third piercing, or that you can just wear the two stud types if you only have two piercings in your ears.

stars-and-moons-swMore earring stud styles available from this amazon uk seller include Hearts, Stars, Moons, Circles, Triangles, Round with Silver or Cubic Zirconia and other symbols and shapes (such as the feathers/leaves in my image below). You can see the full range by visiting the sellers amazon page (links at the end of the post).

earrings-four-sw earrings-one-sw earrings-two-swAnother site that I have previously purchased earrings from is Cherry Diva. They have a variety of sterling silver items for sale. These arrow earrings are fabulous, unique and highly detailed, I like that these kind of earrings can make your ears seem unusual because of the shape and orientation. You can wear them at whatever angle you please to suit your lobe shape.

When it comes to body jewellery and piercings I usually get my labret studs online from sites such as Body Jewellery Shop and Piercing Mania. You can see my recent review from the latter site by searching in my category for Jewellery or Piercings.

The final place I regularly buy my earrings from is Argos. They have a wide range of sterling silver products including ones that are coloured cubic zirconia and also plain shapes.

My Review of the items that I have purchased from Heather Needham jewellery via Amazon are;
Quality 4/5
Value for Money 4/5
Delivery 5/5
Appearance 4/5

I found the quality of the earrings to be very good and the prices I paid for the sterling silver was also very reasonable. I gave the delivery a score of 5 because the earrings all came in individual sets and boxed, with professional postage and packaging so as nothing could be damaged.

Overview

Thank you very much for reading this review, I hope I have given you some purchasing inspiration, and with a certain festive holiday creeping up on us, you may have seen something you could get as a gift for someone who has multiple ear piercings.

Until next time, I hope you have enjoyed this post. If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment. I shall leave you the links at the bottom of this page.
