2013 Holiday Gift Idea: Jewelry

A local jewelry store, My Blue Tulips, recently sent me a sample box of random pieces to try out and review. I love supporting Toronto and Canadian businesses, so I was more than happy to spread the word about their new business. Their store carries styles that range from girly to "neutral" (my preferred style). I think they have pieces that would suit the tastes of most women - young and old. The owners, Vi and Candy, started their business this past summer to offer reasonably priced, high-quality jewelry to their customers. The partners are very involved with their business - handling everything from product design to product photos.

Overall, my impression of their service and their pieces is positive. Their packaging is very pretty and their shipping was super speedy. They use pretty Swarovski crystals in their pieces. I noticed that my favourite necklace (the Sephiroth Crystal) received a lot of positive comments from others. (Granted, I haven't worn all of these pieces yet.) All of the pieces I received were of great quality.

I offered the team the idea of adding product measurements to their item descriptions. Since they're an online store, it's important to add as many details as possible so customers won't experience any "surprises" when they receive their orders. : )

The timing of this review couldn't be more perfect because these pieces would make the perfect holiday (or birthday) gifts for the girls or women in your life. You can use the coupon code BLUETULIPS to get 25% off all orders; or the code JESSYDUST to get 25% off + a bonus gift on orders over $50. My Blue Tulips currently ships to Canada only, but they're hoping to expand to the U.S. soon, so subscribe to their newsletter for updates!

  1. Hi Jessy! Great review... do you know if they use Sterling Silver / Plated silver on the chains? I have really sensitive skin and most non-sterling silver pieces may irritate my skin...thanks! :)

  2. Hi MangoRabbit - that's a great question! All of our products are nickel free so people with sensitive skin shouldn't have to worry about any allergic reactions as most of those allergies are caused by nickel. We do have a sterling silver line coming up in the near future as well so either way, all of our products should suit your sensitivities. :)

    1. It's a throw my boyfriend bought for me two years ago at Bed Bath & Beyond! I'm not sure if they still carry it though.
