“ Brand: Past Times / Type: Necklace and pendant „
When it came to Valentines day I had no idea what my boyfriend was buying me other than Gucci Guilty and a ring (not engagement by the way, but I did know what to expect cos he had asked me sizes!) and to be honest I didn't really expect anything more than those things. However he surprised me with a bouquet and teddys and things and the one thing I never expected was this gorgeous necklace.
One of his favourite shops is now Past times and thats because I introduced him to the place a few months back. We both love the fact that they stock unusual items and that they are so well made and finished and he spotted this a few weeks back and pointed it out to me. I do remember now saying how lovely it was but had simply forgotten all about it but lucky for me he hadn't!
This is normally on sale at £35.00 for the chain and the pendant but at the moment this is on sale at the bargain price of £17.50 and it is on in sale in the Pasttimes stores or on www.pasttimes.com.
What You Get For Your Money:
This item does comes gift boxed and my boyfriend was in raptures about the box it came in! The box is actually a plain burgundy carboard one with Past Times written on the top left hand corner of it very neatly then inside the necklace comes stuck into a cushion. What impressed Neil was the magnetic clasp the box had to it meaning for travel this necklace stays secure and doesn't tangle or get misplaced! To me nothing about the box is all that special but to him.....welll lets just say he notices everything!
This is of course a sterling silver item and it is engraved to let us know that. The chain is in Dimensions is (cm) 46L x 3drop which means not a lot to me to be perfectly honest with you. However I can get this sitting at about 16 inches on my neck to 20 inches or so as it does have an extension chain to it.
The chain is fine, bright silver, small hooped with a clasp that is simply a conventional type. The pendant is made of a tear spaped shiny black onyx with a silver stripe down the front of it, widening to the bottom of it and is secured by a shiny silver clasp and the pendant does move on the necklace and can also be removed if for any reason you want to.
This really is a very stylish necklace and really made very well indeed. I like the fact it isn't too big, does go very well with other jewellery that I have and really does look very classy and elegant on and this gets a huge thumbs up from me and the fact it is half price for sterling silver at the moment really is a bonus cos I'd pay full price for this one if I had to and so would my boyfriend of!
Only available from Past times.
