I love jewellery and always have. The more sparkle the better, and the finer and more delicate, the more I love it.
Since becoming a mother, however, I find myself wearing less and less jewellery, because having a tiny hand yank at a beautiful piece of silver and break it in two is rather heart breaking, quite frankly.
I do, however, love the bracelet I was sent by Cutey.
Not only are these pretty, robust, strong and weighty, but they look like great quality and you wouldn’t be blamed for being surprised at the price – they’re around £12.99 each, with a couple that are a little more, but still under £15.
The Cutey bracelets are more than just costume jewellery. Each piece has its own emotive description, with what I can only imagine is the designer’s vision and dream for each item. The one I have, the Momus, is made up of beautiful glass beads, two star charms and a tower charm – you can choose tower or bell with this style – to signify a place of safety.
Some of the others say things like “This rich and unusual bracelet is full of remembrance, memory and wisdom” or “this bracelet embraces the soil and foliage, the roots and the branches of life on our planet.” These are lovely inscriptions and while probably just marketing blurb, they do make it all sound magical and meaningful, which is lovely.
Quality wise, these are really nice. They’re strong, beautiful, and really strike you as being expensive pieces of jewellery.
There isn’t a massive selection, but they’re still available in a variety of colours and styles and would make lovely gifts for mums or even starter jewellery for young ladies.
I have quite wide wrists, so I found them quite tight, but still wearable. If you have normal or delicate bones, they’ll be fine. It has an unusual clasp that opens easily with one hand, and you can, with a bit of effort, remove the beads and charms and change their order around.
Overall, these are lovely, and I’m really impressed with them!
