Fair Ivy: Package #1- Jewelry – September 2013

Got my first package for September from Fair Ivy, a subscription service that features handmade items.  Skip down for more details on subscription options along with a coupon code.   Now onto the review!!!

Closeup Packaging

This month’s first package featured a jewelry selection from Just A Charm jewelry.  They describe their pieces as “contemporary jewelry with clear and simple geometries.  Each piece is handcrafted in New York City with sterling silver, gold filled, semi-precious gemstones and delicate charms.  The style is modern versatile, minimalist and understated.”  As is par for the course with Fair Ivy, the packaging was lovely and inviting.

Closeup UnopenedInside was a sterling silver necklace.  It features a 14K gold-plated bar charm.

Necklace

Verdict:
Hit!

This is a simple, understated piece that goes with everything.  I really find mixed metals to be interesting and I like the combination of sterling silver and gold plate.

I couldn’t find this piece in Just A Charm’s Etsy store but a similar one in all sterling silver was priced at $23.00.

As usual, Fair Ivy delivers sophisticated, timelessly appealing jewelry.  Of all the boxes I receive I think this one ranks the highest in the category of gift giving.


THE BACKSTORY

A jewelry only subscription at $25.00 a month (plus shipping) for 1 jewelry item per month.  (This option will ship in the US, Canada & the UK).

Or

An original subscription at $40.00 a month (plus shipping) of 3 handmade items (1 item will be jewelry).  (This option only ships in the US).

Because the items ship directly from the artisans, if you choose an original subscription you will receive the packages individually throughout the month.

DISCOUNT CODE:  NEWSLETTER2 will get you $2.00 off either subscription.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure, was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
