If you’re anything like me, then you’ll love the internet. No, I’m not talking about the wealth of information, entertainment and videos it brings to you in your living room via your computer, tablet or phone – I’m talking about the shopping opportunities it provides.
In this internet age it has never been easier to pick up an absolute bargain, no matter what kind of item you’re looking for, and one area that really offers the opportunity to buy great things at fantastic prices is the world of fashion. Thanks to the net, there are now hundreds of websites where you can pick up designer items at bargain prices, and whilst shopping for clothes online is still something of a lottery – after all, you don’t really know how a top or dress will look on you until you try it on – the one place where you can make great low-risk purchases is in the jewellery sector.
Online jewellery purchasing is not only tremendous fun, you can literally spend hours clicking through a seemingly endless array of pieces and designs, but it also offers peace of mind. Most jewellery sites will have the measurements of their pieces listed, so you know their dimensions and how they’ll fit, and they’ll also detail the exact materials their items are made from. If you’re buying jewellery online, if you just make sure you use a site that allows you to pay be debit or credit card then you should be able to get your money back easily in the unlikely event that a dispute does arise.
One area of the online jewellery market that has undergone a boom in recent years is that of charm necklaces. The recent trend for charm necklaces was really kick started by Pandora and their range of customised charms for necklaces and bracelets, but now that Pandora jewellery is commonplace those with a more discerning eye for fashion are looking further afield. Fortunately, there’s a great range of charm necklaces out there that allow you to develop a much more personalised style.
One of my personal favourite places to go to for charms (and indeed jewellery in general) is the site of an Edinubrgh-based company called LilyBlanche.com. Their range of charm necklaces (http://www.lilyblanche.com/shop/charms/charm-necklaces.html) is particularly fantastic, offering a great mixture of variety and value. Prices for one of their necklaces start at just thirty five pounds, and yet even for that small sum you find yourself with a piece of really high quality (not to mention beautiful) craftsmanship. What I really love about the Lily Blanche range (apart from the great value) is the detail of the pieces they sell. Each charm necklace is fantastically designed and really enchanting, and they’ve got a great choice of materials too, with pieces available in both sterling silver and gold vermeil.
Because charm necklaces are now available for such good prices, not only does your money go a lot further, but you’ll also be able to stock up on a variety of pieces that will suit and look or aesthetic you’re going for.
