Opaleen ~ Review & Giveaway


Jewelry is a weakness of mine and so there's no wondering why I was excited to have the opportunity to review some pieces from Opaleen!

The first piece I chose was a cool gold-tone necklace. It's really long, so you can wear it several ways and since most of the necklaces I have these days are silver, I thought it would be a nice piece to add to my collection. I love it! It's so cute and the boys even said it was cool.
Nîmes Gold Coin Bracelet ($34.00) This ultra long chain is adorned with gold roses engraved onto charms of varying sizes. Its dark gold color gives it an air of antique elegance. It can be worn doubled or tripled for an added flair, or left long and simple for a touch of understated elegance. Necklace measures 58" long, largest charms are 15 mm wide.



The second piece I chose to review was this silver, hammered bracelet. This was the one I was most excited about, but after receiving it and trying it on, I decided it's a little too bulky looking on me. I also think I would have liked it better if it was in more of a matte finish. Overall though, it is a nice bracelet. I gifted it to my much taller sister yesterday and it looks great on her. She loves it, so that worked out great!
Valence Silver Textured Bracelet ($34.00): Our Valence bracelet is a subtle and sophisticated take on large cuffs. It features vivid texturing on both sides and a hidden, interior hinge to allow for easy wear. Band width measures 1 1/2" at its largest.



Then, they sent me a surprise piece of jewelry that I totally wasn't expecting! It's a great bright pink and gold summer bracelet and it is sooo cute. I think I would actually like it better if it were pink and silver, but the pink and gold looks awesome too. Totally just a matter of preferance. However, I can wear it along with the necklace I chose too, so that's great!
Avila Pink and Gold Bracelet ($24.00): Subtle gold accents and gorgeous enamel highlight our Avila bracelet in Pink. Made of rich pink enamel and gold tone motifs, pair this bracelet with any or all of the bracelets in our Avila collection for a sleek and stylish addition to any outfit. Bracelet includes hidden hinge opening and can be worn lower or higher depending on taste. The bracelet is 2 3/8” wide and has a circumference of 8 1/8”. The bracelet is oval.




Overall, I was very happy with Opaleen's jewelry. It came packaged in boxes with silky purple ribbons and silky purple pouches. If you were to send any of their jewelry as a gift, you would be very happy with the way they package them and honestly, it was fun for me too. The jewelry seems to be constructed with good quality and should be something you will enjoy wearing for a very long time. Aside from the necklaces and bracelets, they also have great earrings and rings too! Did I mention they have free shipping on all orders?! Well, they do. That along with their reasonable prices make their jewelry all the more appealing to me!

So, whether you're looking to spoil yourself or get a special gift for someone, Opaleen is a great choice. Get over there and check out all their great jewelry now!

I Liked Opaleen of facebook a while back! It is hard to choose just one Favorite! I love them all, but this season I'm loving everything grey! So I chose the Maia Grey Bib necklace from the Spring Summer 2010 collection. It's different from other necklaces and the Grey pearls are luscious! Thanks, Robin Otts Rollins

http://www.opaleen.com/necklaces-and-pendants/cannes-silver-balls-and-silk-necklace.html I love this necklace (the silver balls and silk necklace) for its use of different materials. I can imagine the silk 'straps' make for a very comfortable fit around the neck, and the silver balls gathered in the front make for a fun, flirty dangling feeling. This, is just one of my favorite Opaleen pieces!
