Are you into wearing jewelry? I used to be as a teen and young adult. When I became a mom that all changed. I ended up not wearing any jewelry, except my wedding ring, because my kids would constantly be tugging on things and either breaking necklaces off my neck, or trying to yank earrings out of my ears.
Now my kids are young adults, so I can wear jewelry again. Sadly, many of my pieces of jewelry have either been lost, broken or I’ve given away. I only have a basic “supply” of jewelry. Just simple stuff that I can wear to work and running errands.
Sometimes I like to make a statement with how I dress. There are some days that “ordinary” just won’t do for me. I also like to switch things up a bit. For example, I might get dressed up for work (where I work, casual attire is fine). Or I might put on fake eyelashes to go to work instead of my normal mascara.
When it comes to jewelry, I don’t really have much that is “snazzy” and that will jump out at your. I have a few necklaces that are a bit “different,” but that is about it.
There is a jewelry brand that offers consumers pieces that are unlike anything you have seen before. These are not your department store type of jewelry. This is jewelry that is sure to get noticed when you are wearing it.
The brand is called Amorcito. It means “sweetheart” in Spanish, and when it’s translated into English it means “little love.” That is the nickname that was given to the jewelry’s designer, Vanessa, by her husband.
Vanessa’s designs are minimalist and artist. Her creative line is perfect for fashionable women, or people like me who like to have a few statement pieces in their jewelry box.
Amorcito is dedicated to assisting victims of domestic abuse, with a portion of their sales benefiting No Silence, No Violence. Every piece in the Azuma collection is inspired by “A Flower for a Flower,” to protect the vulnerable and encourage the opportunity to bloom once again.
I love that the brand is not only helping out victims, but I also love the “A Flower for a Flower” idea.
To give you an idea of what kind of jewelry designs you can find on Amorcito’s website, here are a few examples. These are photos taken from the site.
Those side hang earrings (pictured above) are awesome. I’d love to try something like that, but not for work (I can see the kids I work with tugging on them).
I also love that pretty flower ring.
Most jewelry is available in gold, rose gold or platinum plating.
Amorcito was kind enough to send me a set of earrings to review. I was sent to review her Celestial Dangle earrings. These particular earrings are only available in a gold plating. I tend to lean more towards silver, but I do like to keep a nice assortment of gold pieces available as well, because some outfits go better with gold jewelry than silver.
These earrings are long. I can honestly say that I’ve never worn long earrings before. They took some getting used to, but eventually I did. I’m still aware that I am wearing them, but that is not a bad thing. In fact, it’s a good thing. That way I don’t forget they are on and accidentally grab them when I am pulling my hair back. That could hurt!
I don’t know who would look best in these earrings, someone with short hair or long hair? Don’t get me wrong, BOTH long/short haired people would look great in these earrings. I’m just wondering if they would stand out more with someone with short hair.
Here is me wearing the earrings. I’m holding my ear forward so you can see the top of the earring, where it goes in your ear. Otherwise my ear made that part turn to the side and you couldn’t see it in the pictures.
I’m also wearing the earring in my second hole. That’s just my personal preference. If I wear just two earrings I use my first and third holes because my second holes are too close to the first ones. For that reason I don’t use my second holes as often. When I wear these earrings I wear them in the second hole so that the hole doesn’t close up.
These earrings really stand out, as you can see. I have received many compliments on them. I can honestly say I think just about every time I’ve worn them I’ve received a compliment on these earrings.
I thought these earrings might feel heavy in my ears, but they don’t. I don’t notice I’m wearing them because of the weight, it’s more so because they go down to my shoulders.
These earrings are very well made. I have worn them many times without any issues.
The earrings also come with a larger back piece (to hold them secure in your ear). I guess it’s larger due to the larger size and weight of the earrings. I love the back because when I drop it on the floor I can actually see it whereas the little backs are nearly impossible to find.
Price wise, Amorcito might be a bit pricey. I believe they are in the $21 – $88 range, with most items between $40 – $60. That’s honestly not that bad for quality jewelry. They also have sales, so the site it worth bookmarking and checking back from time to time to see what is on sale.
