I wanted a good quality silver necklace that was discreet but strong. I wished to wear the necklace everyday and not be concerned about taking it off at night. I browsed the internet for a good few months and nothing appealed to me until I stumbled upon Dogeared. Initially I did not know what to make of the brand name as I had never heard of it but I soon discovered that the company is a quality brand from the USA. The UK website that I browsed (ASOS - an official seller of Dogeared) had so many unusual and beautiful styles - I knew that the necklace would be bought from this store. When I saw the Karma necklace in Silver I was captivated by its simple, delicate style and was elated when I saw the reduced price! This was the one for me.
A CIRCLE OF LOVE THAT IS A BEST SELLER
When my Karma Necklace arrived I found it beautifully presented in an organza bag - I really appreciated this uncomplicated package as I can easily store my necklace when I am not wearing it. Needless to say the bag remains redundant as this necklace is never off! The jewellery is presented on a minimalistic but high quality and attractive card and sits above a phrase which reads - '''what goes around comes around, wear your necklace as a reminder to keep your circle positive, peaceful and loving'''. I really resonate with that motto and it suits me down to the ground. There is a '''Dogeared''' logo and confirmation that this necklace is Sterling Sliver. This necklace is a much loved best seller and when I removed the chain and placed it in my palm it was easy to see why - I felt quite emotional as I viewed it because it was so beautiful!
AN ALLURING CIRCLE ON A CHAIN OF SILVER
Each Dogeared Karma Necklace is '''handcrafted in California''' - this is a special piece of jewellery for sure. I held it in my palm and it felt absolutely weightless - this delighted me because I would hardly notice its presence around my neck. Even though the chain is so light and very delicate it has a quality strength to it (I have had it on for the majority of the last two years and it has been caught on all manner of clothes etc and has not broken!). It is a hardy little thing and that is for sure - looks can be deceiving! The 16 inch Silver chain fitted around my neck like it was made to measure - I love that it sits just around the base of my neck. It is not too high or low and for me that is flattering. It was really easy to fasten with its good sized and quality '''trigger closure''' fastener. I felt happy that it was secure and would not be lost as the mechanism on the fastener closes tightly and stays put.
Whilst the necklace is around my neck I can not feel any weight at all and when I look at it in the mirror it is not noticeable from a distance. When close up to the mirror you can see the subtle shape of the Karma Circle and it looks as though it is floating alone without a chain because the chain is so delicate. I genuinely adore this design - it is elegant. The half inch Sterling Silver Circle sits neatly between two small bars and this allows it to sit exquisitely on the neck. The quality of hand crafted work on this necklace is obvious - it is perfect. After continuous wear for the last two years the Silver Circle remains in shape and the silver has not tarnished in any way. I have not needed to have it cleaned yet! I am amazed as my other silver jewellery requires frequent cleaning. I am extremely impressed with this Dogeared best seller! I bought my mum a limited edition necklace at the same time as I got mine and she will not take it off - she loves it!
DOGEARED BITS & BOBS
You can purchase the Silver Karma Necklace from www.socharming.co.uk and www.queenofcharms.co.uk There are other official sellers of Dogeared in the UK - ASOS and Amazon also sell Dogeared but stock varies. A quick google search will provide other options.
From £39.99 upwards at the time of reviewing - keep an eye out for sales as I got mine for £12.00 from ASOS, though I have to say that I have never seen them at that kind of a price since.
OTHER ITEMS ARE
Dogeared do different ranges of earrings, bracelets and necklaces. You can often buy matching items. I like to browse the USA website and then see what the UK official sellers have in stock and what prices they are. You can actually order from www.dogeared.com as they will ship to the United Kingdom but you will have to take postage and customs into account when pricing up. The website is worth a look - they have some gorgeous stuff and the most popular items are stocked by the UK sellers.
A KARMIC EXPERIENCE THAT I HAVE EVERY DAY
I have had this necklace for approximately two years. The necklace has been around my neck for the best part of two years. It is with me in bed and in the shower! It is a hardly little fella - it has had some challenging times but remains in 'as new' condition. The hand crafted Karma Circle captivates me every day! Now that is incredible isn't it - but it is the truth! I just can't take my eyes of this simple but exquisite circle when I pass a mirror - and my husband thinks that I am admiring myself! Now I can tell you that the circle does remind me every single day to go about my life in the best way that I can and I often cannot resist touching the circle and running my fingers around it! This little necklace is very much loved and creates love too! It is so fine and delicate to look at and sometimes you would think that the little Karma Circle was floating all by itself in the nook of my neck, an illusion - that is part of the appeal of the necklace for me, it has a wonderful charm all of its own. I am still delighted by the price that I got it for - it was a gift! Having owned the piece for so long now and knowing its genuine quality and robust strength I would have no hesitation in paying full price because I have had more than my monies worth! You get what you pay for with this necklace.
