These three jewelry pieces are what I received in my second Little Black Bag. The necklace retails for $75, the earrings $38, and the ring $62 for a total of $175.  How much did I pay you ask?  The answer is only $49.90 + shipping = $54.90! That's only $18.30 each! Shocked, amazed? You too can join in my bargain find today! If you haven't heard of this company before, a quick description:  go to the website here and pick out one item that you love, add it to your bag, the website will then chose two more items for you (jewelry, handbags, cosmetics, accessories), then you will trade those items with other customers on their website for up to 7 days.  Look at their gallery of products and chose items to trade for by clicking on the photo of that item, then chose trade and select the items in your bag you want to trade for that item you really want.  You can trade as many items in your bag you want for that one item.  Others will ask to trade items in your bag and you chose to pass or accept.  As soon as you have a perfect bag full of items you love, chose "ship my bag" and voila your bag will be shipped to you full of goodies.  This is a monthly subscription service which asks you to buy one per month at the beginning of the month, but you can cancel or skip a month and you may return items if they don't meet your expectations.  

This was my best bag so far, since I had a little trading experience and didn't change my mind the last day like I did last time.  I had a coupon for a free item, so I had 4 items to trade with.  The ring was the item I chose, it's a lighter blue than I expected.  Also, the face is pointing in the opposite direction than featured on the website.  The ring is adjustable, but I would say it's not small enough for a size 5.5 or smaller.  It's a bit loose on my finger and rolls around.  The earrings are extremely light weight, you can barely even feel them when wearing which I love.  I'm a bit concerned about the pearls, they are very delicate and I'll have to be careful or they could fall off.  They look like handmade jewelry.  The necklace is so very pretty, but very heavy.  I will maybe wear it a couple times a year, certainly not for long periods of time.  It will also be a challenge to find a outfit that won't compete with this necklace, a solid color is a must.  I'm thinking of purchasing a shadow box and displaying it in that on the wall.   So there you have it, my 2nd little black bag.  Read about my 3rd bag here.

Thanks for reading, feel free to comment.  Have a PEACEful Day!

  2. ty so very much Che for the compliments on my nails :) Yeah, cameos are usually so expensive and this ring is very detailed even though not a real cameo, the photo just doesn't show the detail very well. Me too, not a fan of large chunky jewelry, but this one was so retro, the yellow and red flower are so 70's I had to have it, shadow box display will work well for me instead of wearing it.

  3. I can't decide if I want that ring or not :/ afraid to buy jewelry like that without trying it first. That necklace is gorgeous. I don't think I'll be able to find anything to wear it with either, so I think I'll pass on it, but the shadowbox idea you had is great; you can still wear it if you want, but you'll always get to see how pretty it is ^_^

  4. candleashes, yeah, if you have a small finger around 5.5 size, don't get it, it just rolls around and annoying. Size 6.5 or above would be fine, size 6 maybe. I just found a shadow box at TJ Maxx for the necklace yesterday, so stay tuned, I'll post photos soon. I was really shocked to see some at TJ Maxx and they are so pretty. If you are in the market for shadow boxes, check out that store or their other one Home Goods asap. They will sell out for sure, under $13!
