I love jewelry. Rings, necklaces, earrings and more, you name it, I’m a huge fan. If that jewelry is handmade, I absolutely can’t resist. For this reason, I adore NOVICA, which is like an online artisan market where you can get the most unique gifts and jewelry anywhere.
They have a great selection of pieces that you just can’t find anywhere else and I love that each of their pieces comes with their own story and information about its country of origin. Looking for a hard-to-find item? Want truly unique gifts? Novica really has it all and is now my go-to site for those that are impossible to shop for.
Novica makes it easy to find the perfect gift because of their intuitive search functions. Instead of it being overwhelming to shop at a site that has so many awesome choices, Novica has really great categories and subcategories, allowing you to sort and find the perfect piece. Because I was looking for something special for an amethyst lover, I was even able to sort my sterling silver jewelry results by stone type, something that I love.
Once you find a few items you love, you can see the pictures and descriptions as well as the artist profiles listed on each page that give you an idea of who you are buying from. This feature makes it a truly unique shopping experience and why I could easily spend days shopping and searching.
I finally decided on the Timeless Water Lily a beautiful silver necklace that has a dainty silver charm adorned with amethyst, garnet and moonstone charms and had it shipped to me from Thailand. It was perfect for my recipient for a variety of reasons, but mostly it won my heart because I knew it was unique enough that it would stand out against the mass-produced necklaces you can get at department stores.
It arrived surprisingly fast considering the distance it was traveling, and came boxed in a beautiful leaf print paper jewelry box, a presentation which I absolutely adore. Included in the jewelry box was a card explaining the piece and the story behind it, something I love as it makes it easy to reference later as the compliments pour in.
If you are looking for handcrafted and unique gifts, décor and more, you should look no further than Novica this spring and summer. And, if you are as excited as I am about NOVICA, you should definitely check out NOVICA Live, a great way to take your shopping experience to a whole new level. Whether you want to host a party, become a consultant, or merely learn more about their artisan offerings, the Novica Live site is a great resource.
