Every month Fair Ivy sends a handmade find with a guarantee of jewelry every other month. July is a jewelry month.
I got my package which was only slightly worse for the wear.
Inside we have a cute little box with an unfortunately dead bit of evergreen, but still I appreciate the effort that went into the wrapping.
Silver & Gold Bar Necklace from Grey Goose Gifts
Grey Goose Gifts has been featured in previous Fair Ivy boxes and I do love their designs. I think this is pretty and classic, very much in line with the Fair Ivy aesthetic, but maybe it’s a bit *too* much in line. It’s way too similar to the pieces we already received. I feel like most Fair Ivy necklaces I get resemble each other so closely that I don’t really need multiples. It’s also extra disappointing because Grey Goose Gifts has some interesting designs that include crescent moons, druzy stones and anchors – all things subscribers haven’t gotten before, and would still work within the aesthetic.
I’m going to set this aside as a Christmas gift, (but there’s always the chance I’ll decide I want it after all and then treat myself.) I paid $36.95 (including shipping) and I can’t find the cost of this necklace on the site so I’m guessing it was custom made for subscribers. The pricing seems in line with what many of the other pieces cost and it does seem worth the price. Unfortunately, I am feeling like it’s probably time for me to cancel this subscription. I love the designs and buying from indie makers but I’m getting too much jewelry that all looks the same.
