Novica Website

Last year, when Novica invited me to review an item for them, I treated myself to a much-needed leather shoulder bag that has held up beautifully to this day!

This year, I treated myself to a beautiful birthstone necklace to celebrate my special day. After much hemming and hawing, I selected the Peridot and Crystal Pendant Necklace, Lime Ice!

The necklace arrived in a lovely box that was wrapped in handmade floral paper. Inside were cards about the artist and the land she was from.

The star of the show, however, was the necklace itself. The sparkling stones and craftsmanship are simply exquisite!

    Hi Ramona!

    I love shopping there too! I love getting my goodies and seeing who made them. They come with a card that has a note from the artist and where they live. I think that is absolutely awesome and have kept every single one that I have gotten in my jewelry box with the item.

      Hi Mary,

      Thanks for sharing these features – I love those cards too! I originally had photos included in this post but it seemed a little crowded (I think I did show them in my original review). I love that you still have all of the cards and would love to see the jewelry you own!

    I love it that they are able to showcase the talents of artisans around the world, from obscure places, and that they are able to provide livelihood. I am sure this is wonderful for people who have no way of exposing their jewelry and shawls and hand carvings outside of their locales. patsy.paterno (at)
