BonitaJ Jewelry Review and Giveaway (Christmas Wish List 2010)



It’s no real big secret that I love jewelry and when I say that I mean jewelry of every kind, shape and size. My biggest thrill is finding a special jewelry company that offer one of a kind handmade jewelry and since I have several lovely ladies on my holiday shopping list this year I have decided to get them each a special piece of jewelry that is unique to only them and I’ve been spending countless ours trying to search for the perfect jewelry store to purchase them from and when I just happened to discover BonitaJ.com I knew that this would be the perfect place to get one of the gifts at for sure, and when Bonnie agreed to allow me to do a review and giveaway right here on The Cartoon Lovin’ Mama I was super excited!

My Thoughts:

Even though I’m not getting married, and I really wasn’t in the market for bridal jewelry I just completely fell in love with the custom bracelets available at BonitaJ.com and who says that you have to be a bride or in a wedding party to wear beautiful handmade jewelry from BonitaJ.com??? So I immediately decided to go with the 5.5” bracelet with the large beads in the color amethyst and the small beads in black diamond and I have to tell you I imaged it to be beautiful but when it arrived at my door it was so much more than I had ever expected! I also have to note that for it to be a custom made bracelet the turn around time was amazingly fast and I think that is super important when you are shopping and ordering online when it’s in regards to an event or gifts.

Once my bracelet arrived I could not wait to try it on, now I do have some very tiny wrist and the size was perfect, I don’t really like my bracelets to be very loose so the fit was perfect and I just love the way the colors amethyst and black diamond goes together it really made a truly beautiful bracelet! Since receiving it I’ve worn it daily or almost daily and I have gotten some very nice compliments on it, not to mention everyone wanting to know where I got it and where they can get their own :0)! Although, I didn’t get this bracelet because I’m a bride or in a bridal party, I did find out over Thanksgiving that a dear lifetime friend of mine is getting married next summer and I will be the Maid of Honor and since receiving this lovely bracelet and with the super affordable prices at BonitaJ.com I have directed her to the website and she is pretty sure that’s where she will be ordering all her wedding needs!

This bracelet is not only beautiful it’s very well made and of high quality, most of the handmade custom bead bracelets I’ve bought in the past hasn’t lasted very long in the past since I wear them on a daily basis and I have a toddler so they are fully tested and the bracelet I received from BonitaJ.com has held up wonderfully to the daily wear and tear my jewelry receives!

Bottom Line:

I’m very pleased with my bracelet both the size and the colors are perfect for me and my personal style and I’m very pleased to be sharing BonitaJ.com with all of my friends, family and blog readers! I do hope that my friend decides to use BonitaJ.com with her upcoming wedding because I know she will be making the right decision and getting not only high quality jewelry for herself and the wedding party but it will be customized to her colors and style.

Now, remember even though they are a bridal jewelry shop you don’t have to be a bride to order your very own custom jewelry from BonitaJ.com and I think that a piece of custom jewelry would make a wonderful stocking stuffer this holiday season and since you can make custom sizes you are sure to find a size and color combination for every lady, teen and tween on your shopping list this holiday season.
