Links of London Friendship Bracelet review



If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen the picture I tweeted of this lovely Links of London box that came through the post the other day. I was so excited to show you what was inside but thought I'd save it for this blog post today. Anyway as you can see from the images below it is a gorgeous purple threaded friendship bracelet!

Links of London Friendship Bracelet*
The collection of Friendship Charm Bracelets by Links of London is inspired by the friendship bands we used to make as children. I know that I used to have hours of fun making plaited threaded bracelets for my best friends when I was younger - I guess you could say the fun never really went away  for me since I still make jewellery today! Of course this is a much more sophisticated friendship bracelet, made from beautiful sterling silver.

What I wasn't aware of before reading the note card that came with the item, is that the bracelet is actually handmade. The purple fabric has been carefully hand woven through the sterling silver bars. As a lover of handmade items, you can imagine that as soon as I read this, I loved the bracelet even more! You can tell that the item has been crafted to a high standard and will last years and years. Links of London also donate a percentage of each friendship bracelet sold to hard working charities around the world, which I think you'll agree is pretty awesome.


The friendship bracelet is really easy to take on and off and can be adjusted to fit your wrist size perfectly. I can imagine it looking beautiful stacked with other colourful bracelets from the collection, but it looks equally as lovely on its own. They come in a variety of different colours and styles, perfect for the summer months ahead.

The simple yet elegant design is very wearable, making it the perfect piece of jewellery to compliment every day outfits. If like me, you cannot imagine taking the bracelet off that often, then you will be pleased to know that it is hand washable! Yes if you use a little shampoo or a mild hand-wash detergent, you can get your bracelet looking as good as new.


All in all I have to say that I really love this bracelet. It is very different from the style of jewellery I usually wear, but that's great, as I've discovered a new type of bracelet that I like! Although I haven't purchased from Links of London before, after liking this bracelet so much I am definitely going to have  to have a look at their other jewellery collections. Two of my best friends have been fans of the brand for years, so it's about time I joined in!

Did you use to make friendship bracelets as a child?
Have you bought anything from Links of London before?
