Stella & dot collection

Stella and what can I say?? Last Friday I had an opportunity to go view the Stella and Dot collection. I will be honest, I always admired the collection but was dubious about the pricing, as I found it could be quiet expensive, that being said, I had never viewed the collection in person, only online. I never realised the detail that's in their jewellery, not to mention the thought that has gone into each piece.
As I popped into the lovely Leona's for a view and some yummy coffee we oowed and awwwed over every piece (well me mostly)..check out her facebook page here. I mentioned to Leona about the pricing and as she explained and demonstrated each piece, I completely understood why it was priced a little more expensive on some pieces, as these are so versatile, and indeed it was priced correctly for what you were getting. 
Every necklace has unexpected touches and surprises, all if not most can be made to be worn in not one, but a minimum of 3 or even up to 7 ways in some styles, you were getting many necklaces, as opposed to one. Oh and did I mention some were reversible? very clever!
These are the most Multi tasking necklaces I've ever come across, now who doesn't love that?
It was the same story for their beautiful earrings, you had one earring set which could be worn four different ways, where else can you get that???
The quality of each piece was top end, they are beautiful, and I've never seen such versatility in jewellery pieces.
I was definitely sold on every piece, heck I want the whole collection!!! So let me show you a few pieces and demonstrate how some of these pieces work...
Leona had everything displayed beautifully...
A sample of the neckpieces....the third piece can be worn 4 different ways, allow me to show you below!
