The folks behind retail jeweler Soho Hearts contacted me recently and asked me to take a look at their website.
The company originated in Amsterdam and its pieces are carried in more than 150 shops in Spain, Amsterdam, and the UK. Now, they're looking to expand their presence here in the states, with a store that's scheduled to open in NYC next spring.
They sent me this pretty statement necklace to try out for myself -- see how I look in it and check out a few more affordable looks from Soho Hearts below ...
Here's what I look like with a jacket over the necklace, which is how I wear it ...
And here's what it looks like on its own.
I'll be honest, when it arrived, I couldn't stop thinking of Boy Scout merit badges -- the stones are embroidered onto heavy felt. That said, it definitely makes a statement and the stones themselves are very pretty.
There's lots more to see at Soho Hearts' website. Here are a few of my favorite picks:
This Multi Beads Necklace (Soho Hearts, $47.95) is super-chic and would go with so many different looks. I love versatility in jewelry.
These memorable Farha Dark Blue earrings (Soho Hearts $39.95) look like they cost far more than their actual price.
And this Emaille Bracelet (Soho Hearts, $21.45) makes me think of shopping in little beachside boutiques. I love it!
Disclosure: I received a statement necklace from Soho Hearts to help facilitate this review. My opinions about the line are my own.
