NOVICA Review & $50 Gift Card Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #250!


I am always on the lookout for unique and interesting products. When I was introduced NOVICA, I was especially excited because I was in love with many of the items that the store offers. On the site, you can purchased items designed and made by different artists all over the world. Each item has a little write up about the artist who created it, and I thought it was really neat to read the artists' inspirations and how that translated into their designs.

I was given the chance to review 3 different products. The first one was a set of teapot and 2 tea cups. The set is called Turtle and Snail and it was handcrafted by an artist named Tat Yan Soo. Because the tea set was shipped from overseas, I was afraid that it might arrive in pieces. Upon its arrival, I was so happy to see that the tea set was packaged very well and it arrived in perfect condition.The second product I received to review was a pair of Pearl drop earrings called White Dewdrops. Created by artist Nyoman Rena, the earrings are beautifully made. I worn the earrings a few times already and every time I wear them, I get a lot of complements on how nice they look. Last not not least, the third product I received to review was a pair of Pearl dangle earrings called Blossoming Eclipse. The earrings are actually really pretty in person and I was pleasantly surprised by how well crafted they were. I also wanted to mention that the earrings arrived to my home beautifully packaged. Each product I received to review came individually packed and considering that they were shipped from overseas to the US, I thought the shipping time was very reasonable.

All in all, I really like the products I received to review. I would shop at NOVICA again in the future and I would also recommend the site to my friends & family.

To check out and purchase unique items, please visit NOVICA.

Many thanks to NOVICA. The company has generously offered a $50 GC as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers.
