|Henryka Amber and Silver Square Stud Earrings*|
So what possessed me to take Henryka up on their offer when they contacted me regarding their Baltic Amber and Silver jewellery line?
Henryka uses Baltic Amber and silver to create their pieces, and lots of their shapes appear to be Celtic or Nordic-inspired. Whilst the more orange-toned amber pieces work less with the wide variety of colours I wear, I fell in love with the deep green pieces. The pictures on the website barely do the beautiful stones justice though...
There was a definite nostalgia factor in this piece for me: these kind of stones remind me of (work with me here) the kind of semi-precious stone replicas that I'd pore over in museum gift shops as a young'un. The way the green amber catches the light is beautiful and I chose the earrings because the colour is pretty similar to my eye colour!
How amazingly do these photograph? I love the silver encasing of the amber, it's almost Lord-Of-The-Rings-y, to my eye. And anything Middle Earth is a-okay with me.
Overall, I am so happy with these earrings. If you love earth tones, Henryka will certainly cater to your interests: but don't write them off if you're glued to Topshop's jewellery section. The quality of these pieces, to me, supersedes their price point (these earrings sell for £23.00) and the range is so vast that there's something for everyone.
It's not my usual to blog about jewellery specifically, but I did think these earrings merited a mention because I'm so impressed with the fact that my earlobes have not swollen to the size of grapes. So, well done Henryka.
Have you tried Henryka jewellery? Which pieces catch your eye?
