Ofina Jewelery Review + Giveaway

I love dainty jewelry, especially if there's meaning behind them! However, I have a surprising amount of trouble finding designs I like and sizes that fit from stores in the mall. Today, I want to share some of the cutest designs from Ofina Jewelry and a chance for you to win one of the items shown!

This line is created by Liza Anongchanya and each piece is handcrafted in her studio in San Francisco! Most of her pieces are plated gold which helps to keep the cost low while still wearing gold against your skin.

I found the general vibe of the collection to be trendy and delicate which is right up my alley! Recently, I've been loving the story of the evil eye and the Hamsa in jewelry. The Hand of Fatima (or Hamsa) is used as a sign of protection in many times throughout history to provide defense against the evil eye. The evil eye is believed to be a curse cast by a malevolent glare which will cause misfortune or injury. I have been really drawn to this as I wanted to avoid judgement and "evil looks" from other people.

The necklace ($75) I chose is in a gorgeous 14k rose gold fill with a Hamsa hand as the pendant. The hand is also plated with rose gold over sterling silver and decorated with cubic zirconia which gives off a ton of sparkle. Since it's so delicate, I feel like I can wear this with most of my every day outfits!

Similarly for the bracelet ($58), I also chose one with a talisman that would protect against the evil eye. The bracelet features a dainty 14k gold fill chain and it feels very weightless. There are beads spaced out on the chain to add more design. The evil eye piece itself is a gold plating over sterling silver with cubic zirconia.  This style comes in silver and gold and would layer really well with watches or other bracelets.

Lastly, I've been dying to try out the ear jacket style earrings ($68) for a long time! These type of earrings make it look like you have a semi circle hanging below your ear lobe. I think it's so cool. My ears are normally very sensitive and I haven't been wearing earrings for a year so I was very impressed that I didn't have any reaction to these. These are made from sterling silver with cubic zirconia.

Now for the fun part, I will be giving  you the chance to win one of these pieces! The winner will get to choose their favorite item from the three shown here!
