JewelMint and Etsy Jewelry Haul

Hi Bellas,

Happy Thursday.  I've been a bad blogger this week.  Work has beyond crazy!  Back to regularly scheduled programming.  Today I wanted to share with you a few pieces I purchased - all fun jewelry!  I think these pieces really add a little something something to an outfit.  Check it out!

Chunky Necklace & Bracelet Set
I had some old credits on JewelMint so I thought I'd pick up a few pieces.  First off is this statement necklace.  I see myself wearing this with a simple blouse.  Still haven't worn it though - it's not an everyday piece lol.  In person it looked a little cheaper than on the site because of the white ribbon tubing at the top but overall I like it.  The pastels are perfect for Spring.
I also picked up this gold cuff with blue leather detailing.  This cuff is so small!  I feel claustrophic wearing it lol.  I'll probably just give it to a friend.
I purchased a few chain necklaces/bracelets because they are super hot right now and you can pair them with a million outfits from casual to fancy.  I purchased mine from the seller CoCoPynk on Etsy.  First off is this silver necklace.  I was disappointed because the chain is actually a coated plastic.  It's super lightweight and kinda cheapo.  
The next set for $27.99 was a bit better.  It's real chain and nice and heavy.  It also came with a pair of earrings that I gave to a friend because my ears aren't pierced.  I was a bit disappointed about the ribbon closure on the necklace though - mind you they didn't show this in the picture on the site, a bit misleading.  It's already fraying.  If it had a regular clasp like the bracelet it'd be fine.
I'll rock the etsy pieces but now I realize that the cheaper items were cheaper because they cut back a bit on the closures and quality.  Ah well, lesson learned!

I'll have a new video up tomorrow.  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
