When I was contacted by InspiredSilver to do a review, I was excited. I really need more accessories to go with my wardrobe, which is full enough, and I prefer silver (colored) jewelry over other metals.
I started looking, and quickly found Star Wars-themed jewelry, necklaces, bracelets and more. There are designs suitable for adults, kids, geeks, women and even men on InspiredSilver, and I was given $50 to spend as I saw fit!
With the credit, I was able to get three things to review: the Green Ombre Vertical Bar Necklace, Petite Bat signal Necklace and the Black Mesh Stretch Bracelet. Each came with a mesh bag to hold it in; although, the bags are rather thin and rip easily.
The first thing I wore was the Green ombre bar necklace. It’s a small and delicate piece, but I love the design. It’s elegant and sophisticated, perhaps more so than any other piece. It’s very dainty as you can see from my photo and only 1.75 inches tall. I think it’s not what you want to wear if you want a big statement. Wear it when you want something similar because the rest of your apparel and accessories are more detailed.
I chose the green because it’s not something that I would normally pick, but you can also choose from the same design in blue, purple, plain silver and “spring colors”. Each boasts vertical round cut cubic zirconia stones. The ombre ones start with faux diamonds and become increasingly dark. Although it might seem like the bottom three stones on the green ombre are black, they’re actually a very deep green! This would go perfectly with a black or white top/dress.
Although I am not typically a fan of pave design, this ombre bar necklace is an exception I would definitely make! It shines quite nicely. The only issue I have is that it sometimes turns, so everyone can’t see how awesome it is.
Other than that, it costs less than $25 right now on sale, which I think it a steal!
The next piece I tried is definitely a statement piece – the Black Mesh Stretch bracelet! At just $5, it’s practically free! I was looking for something to finish off my gift code, and this was perfect.
Before I get into this review, let me fill you in on something. I have rather wide wrists. Blame my big bones, LOL! So a lot of bracelets are either just too snug or won’t fit at all. But I find that a lot of stretchy bracelets look too cheap or DIY. So I was taking a risk when I ordered this bracelete from InspiredSilver.com.
I’m glad I did, though! The look is not only different with the silver beads and black, mesh “beads,” but the oversized beads are also a good size for my wrist, I think. You can’t really see the elastic when it stretches on my wrist, so it doesn’t look too cheap, either.
Although it is a bit bulky to wear as I type this, I think it could be dressed up or down. I might wear it with a black cocktail dress to a wedding on Friday, but it could just as easily be paired with jeans, shorts or a flowy skirt!
The final item I received to review if the Petite Bat Signal Necklace. At just under $20, it’s affordable. It’s also an understated way to show your inner geek because, of course, it pays homage to Batman!
The necklace comes on an 18 inch chain, and the charm is permanently attached, so you’ll want to make sure it fits the way you want. As you can see, it’s almost choker-like around my neck. The charm itself is small, as the “petite” would have you believe. But it’s cool because someone might not realize it’s a bat right away! This Superhero Necklace is less subtle if that’s what you’re looking for.
I do think a little more length would be appropriate so I could get it to sit straight. I am often adjusting it because it doesn’t sit perfectly flat. You could technically use a pliers to remove the bat and put it on another chain, but it would be a delicate affair. Or perhaps a larger charm would have a little heft to pull it down and keep it straight.
It’s not a deal breaker for me, but it’s definitely something you should know about if you think you might want to buy it!
Which of these pieces do you like the best? What would you buy from InspiredSilver.com?
