My beautiful new necklace

I am a big jewellery fan. I always wear the same rings (wedding band/engagement ring) and tend to stick to the same watch but I have a big necklace collection! One of my new additions is this beautiful piece from Natural Amber.

I always think that if you are wearing a necklace it is one of the things someone will always notice when talking to you as its in their line of vision. I had seen a lot of celebrities wearing "coin" jewellery and I think it looks great.

I really like the idea of it being a sixpence as opposed to a pound coin or another coin as a sixpence is meant to be lucky. One of my sisters actually gave me a sixpence on my wedding day as it is supposed to bring good luck :)

If you look closely at my necklace, one coin is from 1965 and the other from 1963, yet they both look brand new. The coins have been cleaned and polished to a high standard and then attached to the chain. You cant really see where the loop is attached to the necklace or how the coins are stuck together which makes it look even better :)

The silver chain is a perfect length as I don't like necklaces too long but it mentioned online the length so I knew what to expect. I am usually a bit weary about buying expensive items online as you never know how they will turn out but this definitely lives up to standards, in fact it looks better in real life than in pictures. That's why I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings with you :)

This necklace would make an ideal present for a loved one, or even as a treat to yourself (you deserve to splash out now and again, that's what I tell myself anyway!). The necklace is £94.99 which at first I thought was quite expensive, but the chain is silver and once you see the quality of the necklace you realise it is definitely worth it! I have seen similar ones online for £200+ so this is a really good price.

I don't often review things like this, just mostly make up and stuff but when I come across something like this then I really just want to show it off and let you all know how lovely I think it is :)
