Three More Novica Goodies
I am back with three more pieces of jewelry from Novica! The first piece is a pair of earrings called Moonlight Sand by Nyoman Rena of Indonesia. These are made from .925 Sterling Silver and have 6.5-7.0 mm pearls in the center of each earring. These are drop style earrings that have fishhook backs. I really like this take on the common dangle earring. I think that the solid wire adds a bit of uniqueness that would be lost had these been suspended on a chain.
This pair of earrings is amazingly shiny and catches light beautifully. They are so reflective that they are almost mirrored, as you can see in the pictures. I really like the simple details that these have. The two lines in the top half of the circles add some definition while the small silver beads add a little flair to the bottom half. Also, worry not, though these are on the larger side, these are super lightweight and very comfortable!
You know I couldn't leave Josh out so I picked him up the Flowing Water bracelet by Komang Wijayana who is also from Indonesia. As you might have noticed from the other pieces I have bought him, he is a huge fan of braids and knotwork. I knew that this simple cuff bracelet would be right up his alley!
It is made from .925 Sterling Silver and comes to 6.75 inches in length. The cuff style makes it very easy to put on and take off and it is also somewhat adjustable, though I wouldn't go tugging on it too hard. It is sturdy but you wouldn't want to harm the beautiful braid. It fits Josh's small wrists great and I have noticed that he has been wearing this one quite a bit (he wears one of his Novica bracelets almost everyday).
Since Novica has the best earrings, hands down, I wasn't able to get just one pair. I saw the Extravaganza earrings by Narayani of India and I just couldn't resist! I mean, look at them! Novica easily has the most unique earrings! These feature onyx and freshwater pearl accented by .925 Sterling Silver.
With such a growing collection of Novica earrings, this is getting harder to say, but these are definitely at the top of my favorites list. They are simple, yet elegant and can easily be dressed up or down. I love the versatility that these offer. The onyx compliments the pearls beautifully and they both play nicely with the silver hardware. Pictures simply don't do these earrings justice! You really need to see them in person to truly appreciate the attention to detail that was put into making these.
You already know that I love everything that Novica stands for, but just in case you haven't yet, be sure to read their mission statement HERE. Also, if you would like to purchase any Novica item, you can do so on Amazon, or their website!
