A couple of weeks ago I was browsing the web and
pretty much just flipping through sites. I had some Valentines
Days gifts in mind for a couple of people but was having
a hard time locating items I knew must be out there. One
item was for my son and it was a necklace he had and lost
a year or so ago and I had bought it from an Artisan and
could not for the life of me remember who the person was
so I had no choice but to go through one site to the next hoping
to stumble across it. I didn't find it but what I did find tickled
my personal fancy even more. Instead of spending the afternoon
looking for his desired item I spend it looking through the
pages of one of my new favorite stores. I ended the
afternoon sending them a letter telling them how great I
thought their pieces were and they in turn offered to
The Fantasy Jewelry Box is the name and you
guys are going adore them. I just know it! They have an eclectic selection of Jewelry that is bound to tickle every ones
fancy and they certainly hit the spot with mine. They have
just about every style you can think of from whimsical and
frivolous to traditional and demure, even Celebrity inspired
designs if that is what catches your Fancy. I loved how they
broke it down so you could shop by stone or metal or price,
style or collection. I went to the site for I was intrigued by
the name, the item Andrew was looking for was a Celtic
piece inspired by Nordic Mythology and I gave them a
whirl for I though the Fantasy in their name sake might
imply fictional or lore and boy was I delighted I made that
leap. They didn't have the one item I was looking for and
I bought that at a Festival so I am pretty sure I will have to
locate the original artist to replace the piece but I did
find an extremely satisfying selection of Men's and Woman's
items that worked just as well. They truly deserve the name
Fantasy for that is what they offer, every persons fantasy
at an affordable price. Their Designs have been featured in
numerous fashion magazines and the pieces are parallel
to none when it comes to originality and quality of design.
I couldn't believe how down right affordable they were
and they put a whole new spin on my shopping browsing
that afternoon. Yes, I found something for my son but
I also walked away with a list of 30 or so items I wanted
my self and drove John up the wall that whole afternoon.
"John, come here quick, you have got to see this!"
Up the stairs he came bounding thinking Rowan was having
another one of those Baby first moments. "What's going
"Look at this necklace! Isn't it great?"
"Um, yeah, that was the fuss?"
"John, its gorgeous. And look at the price. I could
pick out a whole bunch of items for a great Valentines
"You really screamed like the room was on fire to get me
up here so fast to show me Jewelry?"
"It isn't just any Jewelry John. Look at these earrings right
here. No way can you call that any Jewelry!"
"I am going back to watch the football game." He glanced
down at Rowan playing on her mat by my feet. " I think
I will take the baby with me. You seem a little absorbed!"
Men, they will never get it. Now if I were all excited over
draft picks, then he might understand. The bottom line is
they have literally thousands of pieces and each one is
more impressive then the last. I was sent a necklace for
review that is the total embodiment of Valentines Day
and made me a little weak in the knee's when it came.
It is called Marie's Large Ruby Red Cubic Zirconia Heart
Pendant and just took my breath away. It is a simple piece
with interact details that make it a one of a kind item you can
wear dressed up to add a touch of elegance or dressed down
as frosting on an everyday cake. I loved the weight of it and
the fact it was supported by an entirely feminine delicate
Sterling Silver Chain. I paired it with a simple black dress
every woman should own and was pleased that I went from
run of the mill to radiant with the simple hooking of a clasp
around my neck. Even John took a time out from his football
game to look up and though he is a man (Sigh) and can't really
tell you what is different I did get the wow, you look amazing
and since he never said that the last half a dozen times I wore
the dress I am so chalking it up to the necklace. This is also
one of those items you will wear often and not just cart out
on a special occasion. It is that versatile. Big smile of
Browsing their site I can tell you many such pieces
would invoke the same smile for they cover just about every
taste under the sun. With a Rainbow of colors they not only
offers a endless selection of designs with different Gem stones
they also offer items simply crafted out of metal or wood and
a variety of other products. The truth is even if you wear
alternative fashions, dress like Donna Reed or march to the
beat of your own drummer they have a piece for you. If you
have a fat wallet, shop mainly by coupons or are extremely
frugal, they have a piece for you. One of the other things I
loved about Fantasy Jewelry Box was the guides they have
for care of your pieces and how they take the time to
explain each item they use in their craftsmanship for there
were a lot of things I just did not know about Cubic Zirconia,
the difference in metals and more. After reading through their
guides in the learning center I feel a lot more informed when
making a choice in items for my own collection. Take a look
around, I know you will come to the same conclusion for
they really know their stuff and People, In Touch, Woman's
World and many more magazines agree with me. After you
take a look I know you will too!
