ChunkyBling.com Review & Giveaway!

The folks from ChunkyBling.com (purveyor of chunky jewelry, including Swarovski Pearl rings and Swarovski Crystal rings) sent me a Swarovski Pearl ring to try out. Also? They're going to send another ring to one lucky winner!

From ChunkyBling.com:
"Here at ChunkyBling, we’ve made it easy to find the perfect set of chunky accessories for any occasion or outfit. We carry a wide selection of chunky watches, chunky bracelets, chunky rings, and chunky charm necklaces." cite.

"Chunky Bling started out in northern California and recently relocated to Utah. We love beads! As a child, one of my sisters taught me to make bead jewelry, and now, 20 years later, my love of beads has grown...chunkier!" cite.
I chose the Swarovski Pearl Mystic Black ring to try out and have worn it for a few days now. Here are my thoughts:

GOOD:
- It's genuinely pretty, has a nice sparkle and doesn't look cheap.
- It's inexpensive ($11, including shipping).
- It's comfortable to wear.

NOT SO GOOD:
- While it doesn't look cheap, it also won't fool anyone into thinking you spent a ton of money on it.
- The sizing isn't exact. The band is stretchy so you choose approximate sizes. I am a size 7.5 ring and chose the 7-8 size which is a little bit big on me.

OVERALL:
- It's a fun piece of costume jewelry. It does not clash with my real jewelry and matches plenty of my clothing. I probably won't be wearing this everyday, but I will wear it again.
