REVIEW: Chic Unique Vintage Locket
Lovely Lizzie at Chic Unique has sent me a beautiful locket to review. Chic Unique make beautiful, handcrafted jewellery that is exactly what it says on the tin.
Lizzie is happy to provide a full custom design service to create an amazing, bespoke piece of jewellery to your exact specifications that fits your budget. As well as this, you can find some lovely things in the online shop, but hurry, these one off creations won’t be around forever!
The thing I love about Lizzie’s work is the real sense of individuality of the pieces. From vintage chic to modern unique, there really is something everybody will like. A lot of her work is fabulously kitsch – who wouldn’t want a pair of cutesy loveheart sweet earrings? And the price is seriously right, these earrings, for example are just £6.00 and postage is FREE, worldwide!! Lizzie’s service is also excellent and I think that if you followed her on Twitter you’d see what a lovely person you are giving your custom to!
The locket I received is a gorgeous vintage style cameo locket. This is perfect for all you retro girls out there. It came presented beautifully in an understated, but classic black box, which really made the colours of the piece stand out. The cameo itself is a rich, vibrant pink and it is attached to a locket which is actually sizeable enough to fit a reasonably sized picture in. It would also fit a beloved’s lock of hair very comfortably, so this really is one for all you romantics out there.
The locket has delicate tracery embossed on both sides, and the whole thing came with a generous 20″ chain, so it’ll be perfect to wear with a balconette bra and vintage top, or even a sultry corset for your more daring Victorian fan. However, this locket isn’t just for the vintage lover. The detailing on this piece mean that it would be a great addition to a smart work outfit or something casual, but modern worn about town. Whatever I wear it with, I know it’ll be a talking piece.
