Like most women, I love pretty things. I think it's hardwired into female chromosomes or something. Now don't get me wrong....Diamonds and super-fancy bling are nice (I've got a "skating rink" on my hand), but I much prefer simpler, more subtle pieces of jewelry. I am a low-maintenance kind of gal, so I love jewelry that can be worn every day, whether it be with jeans and a cute top or that little black dress. I like timeless pieces that never go out of style.
So when I discovered Medu Jewelry, I was immediately drooling. This Canadian company offers a wide variety of bracelets, rings, and necklaces that are simple, stylish, and absolutely drool-worthy. They offer several different stone choices such as Onyx, Amethyst, Lapis, Aquamarine, and Smoky Quartz, just to name a few. The designs are pretty straightforward, and truly showcase the natural beauty in the stones used to create the jewelry.
The generous folks at Medu Jewelry sent me their stunning Tigereye Necklace to check out for myself. I absolutely adore the look of this stone, since it has so many different natural variations to it. In Tiger's Eye, or Tigereye, depending on where you're from, you'll find a wide variety of shades from rich chocolate to golden amber to yellowish and everything in between. These neutral shades are super-flattering on everyone, and would look really pretty along with a summer tan!
My necklace arrived with lightning speed, and was beautifully packaged in this pretty silken pouch. I don't know about you, but I love it when companies add special little touches like that. It makes opening the package feel so much more special. Maybe I am a kook, but things like that matter to me.
And once I opened that pretty little pouch, the necklace inside literally took my breath away. The Tigerye stones are all round and polished, and have so much color and personality. Each necklace will be a bit different due to the natural variations of the stones, but mine contained some wonderfully rich shades of caramel, some darker, chocolate hues, and even some hints of golden amber. It really is stunning!
The stone size is 10mm, and the clasp is made from .925 Sterling Silver and nickel-free. (Yep! This beauty is hypoallergenic, too!) The overall length of the necklace is 18", but it is also offered in a longer, 21" length for those who prefer a longer style.
I am absolutely in love with my necklace from Medu Jewelry. I have received plenty of compliments on it at the grocery store, on date night, and even from other moms at the playground. This piece is so versatile that it truly can make a statement during any occasion. And Medu Jewelry is affordable, too! I just may need to order their Aquamarine and Amethyst necklaces soon! I DO have a birthday coming in June...Perhaps I will leave the window open in my husband's view as a hint! Regardless, this will not be my last piece of jewelry from this amazing brand!
