Favorites Friday

So it’s been a few weeks since our last Favorite’s Friday but it’s worth the wait because this one definitely qualifies. I had a good idea this one was going to end up on a FF post before it even arrived!

Raw Crystal Quartz Pendant Necklace:

After weeks of browsing, I finally decided on this one from DanaCastle on Etsy. I purchased the gold-dipped necklace with a 28″ chain for myself and grabbed a silver-dipped one for a birthday gift for a dear friend 😉

I also loved this layered option from stella&dot:

And how fun is this, also found on etsy during my search:

Sold by GrizzyLove on Etsy.

Don’t even get me started on rose quartz – I’m obsessed!

OK, enough swooning. During a mature and sensible moment, I resisted buying all of the above necklaces, and settled on my simple gold-dipped raw crystal quartz pendant. I went simple because I wanted to dress it up and layer it myself.

The greatest thing about this necklace is that each one is different- it’s exciting to open the box to see what you got. The stones are raw and unpolished, giving it a unique and boho look. My stone is bigger than I expected, and I love it! The silver necklace I ordered for a friend is skinnier and longer than my own and I love it just as much!

Here’s how I dressed it up this week:
