Love Hearts & Crosses.. and Octopi.


I hardly ever buy jewelry, I'm just not that fashion-creative enough to break away from my simple, everyday jewelry - I wear simple stud earrings, a double-hearted Tiffany necklace and a charm bracelet or a bangle. But that doesn't mean I don't adore looking at cute jewelry..

Love Hearts & Crosses Jewelry is a company I've been following for a while. Since I heard of them months ago, I've loved everything on their site! Their pieces definitely deserve to be counted as "pieces", not just goods, because they are all so unique, quirky but at the same time absolutely gorgeous. I make a point to stay away from high street jewelry as I find many a bit boring, lacking of personal touch (which is a no no for jewelry for me!), and not very good quality for the price. There are also so many shabby chic independent jewelry stores out there, and they just aren't up my street - LHC Jewelry's definitely are, with a bit more edge, bit more colour, and more personality.

The Mr Octopus necklace you see above instantly caught my eye, and I spent about an hour deciding what colour to get, and settled on this coral shade with orange stones - I absolutely adore it! I am crap at wearing interesting jewelry but this is one that I thought I'd definitely make an effort to wear - starting tomorrow! The chain was much shorter than I imagined, but I actually prefer that. I find that long ones can get a bit generic, and a bit "distant" from the outfit - so I'm super excited - two novelty features! ;) I usually don't spend much on jewelry - all the stuff I mentioned above were gifts, so shelling out £15 for a necklace was definitely a record in my books, and one well worth it! :)

Their Twitter-bearer is lovely, and the parcel arrived the day after I got an email telling me it was sent - amazing! At the moment if you like their Facebook page, you get to use the code Facebook10 for a 10% discount, and they also have a great sale on! I intend on keeping my eye on their site for future pieces! :)

Have you found anything you like on LHC's website?
Who are your favourite independent jewelry retailers?
