I first discovered the NOVICA store a few years ago and since then I have been a fan and faithful follower of this amazing store and visit it quite often. As a matter of fact, it is the first store I visit when I am looking for a gift that is unique and out of the ordinary…NOVICA has one of the most extensive catalogs of one of a kind gifts for the home, jewelry, women, men…You name it!
I am personally a big fan of their jewelry and I have a created a few curator boards to make a collection using my favorite pieces…I love this feature!
The great thing about NOVICA, is not only the amazing selection of handcrafted items in their catalog, but the fact that they bring together people like yours truly that are looking for these artisanal pieces and their creators, so NOVICA is a great gateway for these artisans and through their website I can find all these unique treasures from all over the world!
Beautiful, handcrafted jewelry
While I love and ordered many different products from NOVICA, my favorite category is silver jewelry and I order some pieces every couple of months to add to my collection and I have always been very happy with my purchases. My last acquisition was a gorgeous pendant.
Hand Crafted Sterling Silver and Lapis Prayer Box Pendant, ‘Calmness’
I was browsing the NOVICA catalog when I came crossed this piece and fell in love with it.
The piece by Indian artisan Bhavesh, features a beautifully crafted cylindrical sterling silver pendant with intricate details including traditional rawa or beadwork, with curled wire and braided motifs, this pendant is unlike anything I own so far.
The pendant has a deep blue lapis lazuli cabochon in the front. The tiny prayer box can be opened to tuck a tiny note, lock of hair or other memento…You can probably even add some scent oil in it if you fancy that type of things.
I love the looks and the idea of using it as a little treasure box. These would make an excellent gift to a loved one. You do not need to use it as a prayer box, and you can actually use it as a message box and add a tiny note saying how much you love and appreciate someone or even add encouragement notes to someone going through a rough patch.
Or add nothing and simply wear it as a pendant, the fact is that no matter how you decide to wear it, the pendant is beautiful and made with great craftsmanship and attention to details. This is one of my favorite all time NOVICA finds!’
The pendant came directly from India which is where the artisan is from. Shipping is really inexpensive, as I paid just $3.55 for shipping…It is coming all the way from India! And it took just a few days, to arrive!
Just in time for Valentine’s day, NOVICA, has kindly offered one lucky Born 2 Impress reader he chance to win a $50.00 gift certificate.
