Pressie part 1 - amulet necklace

Here's just the first part of my special parcel pressie I got from JJ yesterday; I was like an inpatient five year old waiting to get this parcel! Anyway to save this from becoming an extremely hugely big post I thought i'd break it down, makes it easier to pace out the blogging a bit too. 

I'm not too sure how "vintage" [only have the fact that it was from a vintage shop] or the history of amulet pendents [bar Victorian ones designed to cover the smell of the daily life of human smells in an era without Lush and Original Source] but I just totally love this necklace. I've always had a bit of a "thing" for long dangly heart pendants and Joe's hit it right on the head with this one. 

The inside of the heart is designed to hold a small amount of your chosen fragrance [in this instance Joe's aftershave - yum] with its topper tightly fixed in place and secured by a tiny little chain. Surprisingly even with its length and liquid contained, its not heavy on the neck which counts for loads, too many pendants weight you down before you even get anywhere!
Part two to come next time; the compacts!


  1. Oh, it's perfect ^^
    I love those kind of pendants and i'm waiting to find the right one for me :) maybe i'll find it on my next trip to UK

  2. That's gorgeous Pink! I really, really want it now :S.

    Also it's really sweet that he put some of his aftershave in there, it's lovely to have a familer smell like that around isn't it :).

    Can't wait to see the compacts!

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous, and such a personal present. I love that it has your man's aftershave in it too. Just adore it. x

  4. That's so so sweet of him, I love it when a guy put so much thought into gifts! Simply wonderful:)


  5. Such a unique present.:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!
