Jewelmint Cersai NecklaceThis is my last Jewelmint post of the month, I swear! It's pretty rare for me to find more than one item I want from month to month, but I really liked the selection for December and ending up getting three items in total. The last item I'll be posting about is the Cersai Necklace.
Jewelmint Cersai Necklace is a really edgy piece with a double box chain that features matching spike/cone & rhinestone beads on each side and a large abstract tribal inspired rhinestone pendant with dangling spikes. It links with a toggle closure.
When I first saw this piece I thought the style was a bit "tough" and edgy, and the fact that the shape of the pendant is so unique/different, it really drew to me to it. I love spikes when they are incorporated in an accessory in a tasteful manner, and I like how the are only an accent in this necklace and not the main focus. The more I look at it, it really does have a tribal feel - the spikes remind me a bit of teeth or horns that you might see on tribal or native jewelry.
The actual quality of the necklace is so-so. It looks like a heavy duty necklace, but it's actually very light and feels a bit hollow. I'm slightly disappointed that it isn't a more weighty piece, but it doesn't take away from the visual appeal of the necklace itself.
Overall, it's not my favorite item from Jewelmint, but I do like it. I don't really like the fact that you don't really know what you're getting when you order an item as the quality differs from piece to piece. Some can feel cheap and flimsy while some pieces are heavy and feel like a high quality item. I still like purchasing from Jewelmint though, as all of my items have held up really well (no tarnishing) with frequent wear.
I actually purchased three more rings with the Buy 3 for $29.99 deal. I should be getting those soon. I'll be sure to review them when I do!
