This delicate shiny silver moon necklace is nicely presented on a black velvet background in a small grey sturdy gift box. The name of the company is printed in silver on the lid of the box. This look gives an immediate feeling of luxury.
When gently opening the box (the lid is easily lifted from the box), a layer of thin turquoise tissue paper greets you. This colour compliments the colour of the box and gives it an aura of sophistication as well as providing some anticipation as to what lies beneath it. Removing this tissue paper instead of immediately seeing the necklace there is a square of transparent plastic to protect the necklace and when this is removed a very shiny silver half moon on a delicate thin chain necklace greets you.
The moon is 12mm in height and comes on a 13”-15” (child), 16-18”, 20”-22” or 31”-33” necklace and it is very easy to put on with a clasp fitting. My initial reaction of the pendant being too plain, changed once the necklace was around my neck. It is beautifully light, that once around the neck you can forget it there and you are only reminded of it by the compliments people give you. The simplicity of the design appeals to me, however if you want it glitzier or more personalised, then a silver initial charm or a birthstone gemstone charm can be added to the necklace.
Though I did not receive the pouch, care card or silver cleaning cloth, these are supposed to come with the necklace to ensure it stays in tiptop condition. Longer chains are also available.
I would certainly recommend this silver moon pendant as a Mothers’ Day present for mums of all ages as it has an ageless appeal.
In terms of being value for money, it competes favourably with other items of silver jewellery that are available elsewhere.
RRP: from £35 (depending on chain length and personalisation).
