Cora Lane Jewelry Review

I know Halloween hasn't even passed yet but November is fast approaching which means Christmas is just around the corner! If you are like me and want to avoid the Christmas rush and craziness the best time to start looking for presents is now! Even if you don't buy, it's always best to start browsing for the perfect gift early! A great place to find affordable presents that would be perfect for the women in your life is Cora Lane.

Cora Lane is a great etsy shop that is created by the talented Alisha. Cora Lane is full of amazing necklaces, earrings, bracelets and even vintage jewelry that have been lovingly created by Alisha. 

Alisha specializes in creating bridal party and wedding jewelry but I love that all of her pieces could be worn everyday! They are classic pieces such as her pearl bracelets but she puts a very modern spin on them by adding bright bold colours or using funky and unexpected touches like crystal beads. 

Alisha loves doing custom orders and she is so great to work with and she can definitely create something special and unique whether it be a large order of her special pearl bracelets that follow your wedding colour scheme or if you just wanted something special to treat yourself. 

I also love that everything is so affordable! Nothing is over $50 so you can get something totally beautiful without having to worry about your wallet!

You can also catch up with all the up to the minute updates from Cora Lane and Alisha through following her on Twitter, Liking the Cora Lane's Facebook Page and also seeing what inspires Alisha when she creates while following her awesome Pinterest page! I love that her Pinterest is full of great home decor inspirations! 

My Review:

Alisha was so kind to send me over two amazing Cora Lane pieces to do a review on

Each Cora Lane piece comes ready for gift giving in a white gift box with the Cora Lane Sticker on it, finished off with a Tiffany Blue ribbon bow. I love that it's ready to give so you don't have to worry about gift wrapping it!

They also come in a plastic ziplock bag that you can use again to store your jewelry to ensure that they won't tarnish 

The first item I was sent was the lovely Orange - Coral Statement Bracelet 

This lovely bracelet is from Cora Lane's famous pearl bracelet collection! And at only $18 it's quite a steal! I also love that the crystal pave bead comes in different choices. You can go with the more classic white rhinestone bead or you can go with the more funky multi-colour bead! I think the mulit-colour one best suits the colour of this bracelet and it really brings out the fun nature of this coral bracelet. 

The second item that I was sent was the amazing Silver Pacific Aqua Blue Earrings

These amazing earrings truly capture the beauty of the greens and blues of the Pacific Ocean and I think that this is the perfect name for them! I also love that they are offered in two different metal choices - you can either get the gold rope like I did or the silver. But I would suggest going with the gold because it's a warm metal colour and it truly allows for the blue of these teardrop gems to shine. 

The gems are a nice icy blue teardrop glass but feeling and looking at them they look much more expensive! These earrings sell for $23 and they come in a white drawstring bag like all  Cora Lane jewelry.

And here are some handshots of my modeling the amazing Orange - Coral Statement Bracelet! This bracelet is also perfect for stacking with other bracelets!

If you love the amazing jewelry from Cora Lane  as much as I do you will be so happy to hear that there will be a giveaway soon where one lucky winner will win a piece from her great collection!
