Pet Lover Jewelry Review - A Merryvaluation
by Angie McKaig
You know, I've been saying for years that rather than starting up a company called Pampered Puppy, I really should have started a company called Pampered Angie. Because truly, the pug princess has been spoiled many lifetimes over and darn it, I would have loved for some of that spoiling to come my way. Great kitchen gadgets, maybe? (I'm a world-beater cook.) Or fabulous clothing? Elegant jewelry?
Well, when it comes to bling, things aren't so bad... particularly when the folks at Precious Paws were kind enough to send me a set of their crystal pet lover jewelry for review!
The set is stunning, featuring two sets of crystal earrings and a matching crystal necklace.
The necklace is silver mesh, about 16 inches long. It features silver plated brass settings with Austrian crystals in a bone shape. It has a variable-length connector (several silver links to hook into, depending on the length you desire) and a silver plated lobster claw clasp.
Strikingly, it's not very heavy. To look at it, the necklace seems like it would weigh you down incredibly, but it's in actuality feather-light. The silver mesh is breathable and sits lightly around the neck, and for such large crystals, the bone dangle is similiarly lightweight.
It's a breeze to wear this necklace all day long without feeling burdened. Given my busy lifestyle, that's a blessing.
The two sets of earrings are made very similarly: silver plated brass settings, large Austrian crystals, with french wires for pierced ears. The paw design: the paw itself is roughly 1/2" wide and 1/3" high. The bone design: the bone is 3/4" wide and 3/8" high.
As with the necklace, the earrings are surprisingly lightweight and easy to wear for hours on end. If I had one thing to change, it would be to have a little more "dangle" on the earrings; I found the crystal dangle was attached very closely to the french wires and could have used a few links of chain between them.
Overall, I was wowed by the bling pet lover jewelry. Great quality, cute design, and wearable for hours. They're made in the USA by pet lovers, and are an excellent choice for pet lovers who, like me, love their bling.
