Sexy Little Studs
These may be a little overpriced at $165, lower hundreds or even less might be more appropriate, BUT I think they're cute enough to overlook that. I'm very happy with them. Much of the reason for that is that I just really like the style. The druzy isn't overly sparkly, but gives a nice subtle shimmer that just catches the eye through my dark nearly black hair. They make me think of some sort of celestial body, like a meteor. Do you see what I mean at all? At any rate I really like them. Would purchase again. The whole druzy thing can be a little tired at this point but I think these earrings are a bit different, a bit special, and will come back to make an appearance in my wardrobe over the years.

Nice
I can't quite put my finger on why I'm rating this ring as 4-stars good rather than 5-stars excellent. I think it may just be that there's something about the design which reminds me too much of things I liked in middle-school/early high school. I feel it's not very grown up/sophisticated. However, it is very nice and well worth $88 I think. I'm happy with the purchase. I've really liked every other piece I've bought from Jacquie Aiche. If I had a niece or cousin who was around 15-18 I'd get this as a present for them in a heartbeat. Unfortunately I don't know any 15-18 year olds. But I like this ring for me anyhow. It's kind of like a Harry Potter book, I feel a little juvenile with it, but somehow I like it enough despite the fact.

Lovely
I got this chain because I needed something very delicate to fit through the hole in an old pre-ban ivory Buddha charm I'd gotten from my grandmother. Nothing I had would fit through and so I was delighted to find that this one does! It's hard to tell from the photo but the chain is a very bright silver, so I'm hoping it becomes a little more muted with time and use to better suite the charm.

Overpriced
I'd forgotten how much I paid for this necklace, but upon being reminded I feel like I probably should return it. It just seems hard to justify $125 for a necklace which is so simple without having anything particularly special about it. It seems a bit chintzy in person, or maybe crude is a better adjective. Just in that the manufacturing doesn't seem at all artful or detailed at all. I think that may in fact be part of the idea of the design, that it's meant to be primitive. I'm just not in the mood for it and primitive can still be done more artfully, I feel. Definitely a matter of opinion with this one. But I think average is a pretty reasonable assessment. If this necklace were $75-$80 I'd probably keep it. As it is, I think I could probably get something that I like much more for the $125.

Very Pretty
I love this cami. It is light, comfortable and breezy, but especially it is just so pretty. The print and colours make it a bit different from your standard floral fare. Somehow it's just a touch more modern. The tones of purple and nearly blue purple are what does it for me though. The fabric is lovely and soft. I don't think I could be any happier with it.

Nice Enough
I've bought a few Giles & Brother items and find that I keep rating them 'average' or 'good' rather than 'excellent'. There's always some little issue. With this necklace it's that it's a little smaller/tighter around the neck than I expected. I just thought it would hang a little bit more. I think the price for it is probably very good at $105. I see it as kind of a fall back item, when I can't find a necklace I really love to go with my outfit for the day, this will probably go with a number of ensembles. It's the design that's reminiscent of two safety pins stretched and clasped together which makes it kind of different. If the workmanship were a little more detailed/just better I'd think it was excellent. I think that's really the issue with these G&B pieces-- I wish they were better quality, and I'd pay for it too. That said though, this is still a perfectly nice necklace. I wouldn't run out an d buy it again, but I'm not returning it either.

Best Necklace EVER
I have to buy another one of these because my mother has stolen the first from me. $132 is a great price for this necklace, not a steal, but a good price. The clasp is much prettier than I expected and not too tricky, but I feel it's secure. What I love so much about this necklace is it's versatility. I can wear it with so many things. With something dressy in the evening it can be rather understated next to more overstated earrings. Whereas during the day paired with a simpler top it really adds something. I'm thrilled with it.

Love Heather Hawkins
This actually isn't my favourite necklace from Heather Hawkins, but I still like it a lot. After buying one of her necklaces a few months ago I've bought a bunch since. I've kind of been going crazy for them. The only issue I have with this necklace is that as I wear it the two chains can sort of twist around each other, so I have to straighten them out now and again. I still like it a lot though. Some of the other Heather Hawkins necklaces I've bought though I love and am over the moon for. So check them out.

Sweet
This is a nice simple necklace I think I'll get a fair bit of use out of. I hadn't noticed the chain it's on so much when I purchased it, or maybe it's just hard to tell online, but it's lovely in person-- very delicate, catches the light just a bit and sets off the tiny copper pendant well. A good tug from a toddler would no doubt do it in, it is pretty delicate. I'm very happy with the purchase and at $115 I think it was easily worth it.

Special
I am very happy that I bought this ring. Sometimes you buy an item online and it's a bit anti-climactic when it arrives in person. Not so with this ring. It is very well made and quite special. I've just bought a few other pieces from Aurelie Bidermann and I'm becoming quite a fan. Each one has been thoughtfully designed with great attention to detail and well made. I think the prices are extremely reasonable. Like the laser cut lace ring by Bidermann this ring is thin enough that you don't feel it on you all day and it doesn't get in the way at all. It's just lovely. I hope Shopbop carries a lot more Aurelie Bidermann in the future.
