Malachite Love

I have been searching for some fashion accessories in malachite for a while, this kind of green is so charming and intriguing that I absolutely can’t resist. So I have my eyes set on two gorgeous necklaces: the mini Theresa from Shourouk and an Art déco inspired one from Anton Heunis.
mlcI don’t own anything from these two brands and neither do I see anything in person. So I simply blind ordered both and oh my, what a surprise! The former is a huge disappointment, quite a few uneven and flecked stones. Well, they said it is meant to be slightly distressed. Seriously? the green color painted on some stones are already broken. IMHO, this is way too overpriced for something retailed for €615 (no offense to all the Shourouk lovers out there, I adore their design but find the quality/price ratio unfair).

On the contrary, the one from Anton Heunis is such a delightful gem! Beautifully hand made in Madrid. Fabulous tones, lovely packaging, let alone the attention to details. And it costs just a quarter of the mini Theresa from Shourouk. Everything about this one is perfect and I can’t be more happy with it.

Have a nice start to the week!ahn
