Novica.com Review

I was given the opportunity to work with a website called Novica.com. It is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites. They work with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. You can find thousands of top fair trade Corporate Gifts and home decor items on their website as well as jewelry, apparel and paintings.

I decided to review some of the beautiful sterling silver jewelry they offer.

 I received this 'Magical Harmony' anklet from India. It's made with peridot, pearl and sterling silver by a designer named Ritu. The picture does not do this piece justice - it's BEAUTIFUL! The sterling silver beads around the pearls are a very nice addition to the peridot beads that make up this anklet.







I also received a sterling silver charm bracelet with matching earrings from Thailand. They were made by an artist named Hiroshi Kimoto. I love his designs! I went with the 'Orange Passion' bracelet and earrings. I could not find the Orange Passion bracelet picture but it looks exactly like the picture but uses the colors that are shown in the earrings picture. I was very excited to get this bracelet because it is so original. The hearts are made of glass with silver flakes inside of them.





 








Finally, I also received a set of three sterling silver band rings called 'Together' made by an artist named Buana. I love stacking rings so I had to have this set once I saw it online. The details of the swirls are beautiful. I love the rings stacked together but some times I where two on one hand and the other one on my other hand because they are a little tighter than I like when worn together. I would recommend ordering one size bigger than usual if you are going to be wearing all three of them on the same finger.

All of the jewelry came in  very pretty jewelry boxes with a card from each of the designers. The shipping varies depending on which part of the country your order comes from but the pricing is very reasonable and fair. I was very satisfied with this company and all of the artistist that I ordered from. These are very beautiful and original gifts.
