Poundland Jewellery? Purple Ivy: Pictures & Review

Poundland 2Now, you all know that we’re not fussy in the slightest when it comes to where our stuff comes from, but we have to admit that even we raised our (perfectly drawn on) eyebrows when we heard that Poundland were launching their own jewellery line. Sure we love Poundland for shower gel, hair grips and wicked-sick deals on biscuits, but jewellery for a pound? Was this just a bit too Jezza K, even for us?

However, take a look at these snaps we found on the Poundland website and try to say that you’re not at least a little bit impressed…
Poundland 6The range, called Purple Ivy, features a whopping 82 pieces. These all belong to different trends, listed by Poundland as Lady, timeless elegant pieces; Girl Next Door which is cutesy and feminine; Vintage Colour featuring bold retro-inspired pieces; Mysterious (which we cannot talk about); Nature, containing simple silver and leafy inspired things; and finally, Rustic Animals – which is quite self-explanatory.

Poundland 5 Poundland 4 Poundland 3I popped into my local Poundland the other day and when I saw they were stocking the range, I decided to try one of the pieces out. I picked up a set of 4 rings which I think are from the ‘timeless’ Lady range. Considering by the time I got the bag home one of the stones had already fallen out, I have to say that I think these do have a time and that time is approximately 25 minutes. However, with that slight grievance aside, the rings that kept their stones are still super pretty:

Pounland 1One thing to note is that I got a Medium, yet they’re a little big even on my massive sausage fingers so the sizings may be a little off in the rings. Overall though I’m pretty pleased with them for a POUND and they’ll make a nice addition to my stacker ring collection (aka that assortment of silver rings that Lauren and the Bonus Jonas regularly find scattered around the house).

    Your nails always look gorgeous, I am tres envious!!! I saw some jewellery in my local one the other week but I didn’t go and have a look & after seeing this I genuinely will. I love all the pinks & golds, if my ears weren’t so sensitive I’d definitely pick some of those up. Loving the mini flower necklace too xxxx

      Aw thanks boo, I’m back on the acrylic hype! Yeah I think if I just saw the jewellery stand before seeing the pics online I wouldn’t have bothered looking, but because I knew there were some nice-looking pieces I was intrigued 🙂 Let me know if you pick any of them up! xx

    are the earring made out of genuine sterling silver because I’m not sure if it will cause an infection?
