Hi everyone! Here is another JewelMint piece that I purchased a couple months ago and it`s one of the few I`ve been really excited about. This is the Crystal Lace Collar from JewelMint and unfortunately this piece is sold out on the website, but so many people are doing bejeweled collar necklaces that it won`t be difficult to find something similar elsewhere. This piece is absolutely exquisite and is encrusted with rhinestones over the entire piece. It is actually a pretty long necklace, even on the shortest link, so I took some pliers and shortened the chain so it was overall much shorter and better suited my preferences. The only issue I have with this necklace is that the metal used for the chain and settings tarnishes very easily. Whatever is in the metal reacts with the oils and salts on my skin and turns the metal very dark and not the bright rosy gold it was when I received it. This can be fixed by coating the back of the necklace with nail polish or some sort of protective paint coating and changing the chains of the necklace with something gold plated from an arts and craft store. My piece arrived in perfect condition but others have had theirs arrive with rhinestones missing or completely broken. This is because it arrives in a much larger box than the usual JM box but receives absolutely no padding or cushioning to keep it from being knocked around while in transit. Just something to think about if you get the chance to order it from JewelMint. Again, this piece is sold out on the site as well as the other blinged out Pan Glam Collar. They may make a reappearance for the holidays, but at this point it`d probably be better to try and find a jeweled collared necklace from another store or online retailer if you`re looking for something sparkly to wear for the holidays. Thanks for reading! Did you purchase this necklace from JewelMint? What do you think of it? Are you into the jeweled collar trend? All images and content are my own.
