Amethyst pendant necklace (c/o Anjolee)
Although my birth stone is technically the diamond, I have been devoted to the color purple for as long as my relatives can remember. My aunt loves to remind me of the haphazard kiddo pronunciation I would employ as a toddler (which sounded more like "poupull" than purple). So I was excited to be contacted by the folks from Anjolee when they asked me if I would review an amethyst and diamond necklace. Their unique website offers customizable pieces (diamond necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, etc.) that you can design based on your preferences. I selected a white gold necklace with an amethyst and diamond pendant (though, in this case the "diamonds" from my necklace are actually cubic zirconia). It arrived in a very shiny wooden box and I couldn't wait to wear it.
Since then, I've paired the necklace with so many different types of outfits, both dressy and casual. Here I paired it with a skirt from Anthropologie and a top from Ann Taylor Loft. In wearing it, I've noticed a few things that I am happy to share for the review. While I love the look of the very delicate, simple chain, the clasp is tiny and a little difficult to fasten without the assistance of a friend. I have no trouble removing it myself. The amethyst pendant stays front-facing most of the time and the clasp of the necklace didn't seem to migrate toward it. It looks really nice with other silver-toned/white gold jewelry, so I enjoy layering the piece with things I already have. This necklace would make a lovely bridesmaids gift or occasion present. I know I loved receiving one!
Anjolee have expressed interest in hosting a giveaway for my readers in the near future so be sure to keep an eye out for that! Thanks for reading!
