Things that Sparkle: A Product Review

I am lucky to have a lot of close female friends and family members in my life – from best friends to sisters-in-law to cousins, I have a great many lovely ladies in my life who are very special to me. And I think I may have found the perfect for all those special people. I was recently approached by Anjolee (a jeweler) to review one of their products, a lovely gemstone bracelet. And I have to say that I was really impressed both by the quality and delicacy of the item itself and by the company.






Anjolee is the manufacturer of all the jewelry items featured on their website which means that they are able to provide their customers with the best customer service and fast delivery. They also have a absolutely vast collection of pieces including diamond tennis bracelets, gemstone bracelets, diamond earrings, diamond necklaces, diamond pendants, and wedding and bridal rings. They are also an ethically responsible company both in terms of the sourcing of their gemstones and the production of their pieces and lots of information on their practices is accessible to the consumer (they even offer you the option of having diamonds certified by a third party to ensure they were obtained ethically).

They are also the only jewelry website with a unique customization system which gives customers the ability to custom-build each of jewelry based on taste and budget. This is one feature of the company that I found amazing – you can build your own jewelry either for yourself to make a special and personalized gift for someone (say maybe a birthstone bracelet) and cater everything to your individual budget, it’s a fantastic feature! And they offer free shipping and insurance with overnight delivery on all items, free gift packaging and 30-day, 100% money back guaranteed return policy. So really, one has nothing to lose.

And now, onto the piece that they sent me to review, a lovely amethyst and white gold bracelet from their collection of gemstone bracelets. I am just blown away by this piece – the style is so elegant and graceful; it’s just a fabulous piece. And I also just have to throw in that I love the clasp on this bracelet – so often I find bracelet clasps difficult to fasten or to keep securely shut or to prevent from catching on things but this clasp was unlike any I’d ever encounter! It was super easy to close and had a double clasp feature that kept it securely fastened and also prevented it from snagging on loose bits of fabric, etc.

In sum, I was greatly impressed with the product that was sent to me and with the company (it’s policies, business practices, website, customer service features, etc.) So, if you’re looking to treat yourself or have a special gift to buy, I strongly recommend Anjolee.

My birthstone is a blue topaz/ turquoise, but I always liked the sapphires or sapphire colored gems best! Should I just switch my birthday? haha
