Picking out the jewelry for my OOTD is such a fun aspect to getting ready. The opportunity to be creative in my styling really sparks a sense of confidence. I throughly enjoy pairing fashion and beauty with jewelry. More times than not, I pick my jewelry out first and use it to inspire my outfit and makeup for the day. Excitingly enough, I’m a proud review ambassador for the fashion forward jewelry brand, Ettika.
The first piece I received as an ambassador is Ettika’s Power Player Coin 18kt Gold Plated Lariat Necklace. This necklace is stunning and bold. You definitely wear this piece to make a statement. It’s crafted from Zinc & Steel, with 18kt gold plating. The necklace is the perfect length at 15.5 inches. I prefer the shortest length option because the piece has a 3 inch drop length from where the coin pendant settle on the chest.
When I shop for jewelry, I look for items that are not only unique, but speak for themselves. The Power Player Coin necklace incorporates both those qualities. I honestly have never seen a piece like this. My favorite element is the drop pendant style. I would describe the chain as an elongated box design. The sturdy lobster claw clasp gives me confidence that this necklace isn’t going anywhere. There is also a stamped hang tag at the end of the chain with “Ettika” in pretty script. To me, this necklace is interesting, with clean angles and edges. I LOVE!
The 18kt gold plating gives the necklace a stunning gold sheen. Although the necklace looks chunky and solid, it is actually extremely lightweight. I loved pairing it with a solid color, lace top. I felt the solid color really brought this piece center stage. It also looks KILLER with a plunging, or deep, neckline. This is because the design takes up a good length of your chest. If you have a top that leaves a lot a neck space, you might feel like it looks to bare and you are missing something special. I highly suggest this necklace to fix that problem.
Versatility is key with any accessory. If you’re looking to switch up your style, changing the way in which you wear an accessory can help you create an entirely new look. With this necklace, the versatility aspect is represented by the double-sided coin. You can either wear the heads side of the coin, or the tails. The heads side has a depiction of Elizabeth II with the year 1981. It’s an Australian coin. The tails side depicts an image of a sailboat, and has says “Half Penny” and “1961”. I adore the overall vintage, but showy vibe of the coin.
I’d highly suggest buying this necklace, it really will enhance any look you have in mind. You can purchase the Power Player Coin Lariat Necklace via Ettika or Nordstrom for $55. If you’re interested in other looks, there are numerous jewelry designs to choose from on Ettika’s website. Check it out, and increase your fashion game.
