In my pre-Mummy days I used to wear all sorts of accessories – the plainest of black tops can be dressed up a with a few bangles or a fancy necklace. I have a box full of accessories in all sorts of colours – Chloe will have a field day when she’s older! Since having the kids my accessorising has tended to fall by the wayside – mainly because they get pulled and yanked about by little people which means they are likely to get damaged.Of course this is where teething jewellery has attempted to fill the gap – in the last 4 years or so lots of new brands have come onto the market and my most recent discovery being Crown Chewels: No boring donuts on a string, Crown Chewels is all about designing products that women will be happy to wear anytime, whether baby is not around or wrapped in mum’s loving arms. And looking through the website you will see there is a great range of styles to choose from.
My most favourite is the Guinevere which just looks like a normal proper necklace – not something that you’ve bought for your baby to chomp on but actually something you’ve bought to wear because it looks nice!! I love that it has a proper silver plated chain. It’s grown up and glamorous. Unfortunately I’m neither petite or svelte* so the shorter section of this necklace was actually too small for my neck – I couldn’t have been more gutted.
However my loss is my lovely friend Michelle’s gain – I was thrilled to be able to give the necklace to Mich and Erin to try out instead! As you can see they both love it!
The necklace is washable in hot soapy water which is fine as by the time you are going to be using this necklace your child will likely be past the stage of needing everything sterilising! (Erin has not long since turned a year old). If I could change anything it would be to have a more adjustable fastening – perhaps with a small extended chain so that I could wear it too!
The necklace came beautifully wrapped and would make a lovely gift for a new mum!
I was also sent the Madeleine which I’m going to review at a slightly later date when I can actually wear and use it myself with Beak!
* I’m 5ft 9 and about an 18 in case you were wondering! Smaller necklaces often don’t fit me unfortunately.
