I know I have been posting quite a few jewellery reviews recently, but I thought I would post one very overdue one for this week. I ended up quite behind on my posts a few months ago due to university work and other commitments, so I'm still working my way through them! I thought this one was too beautiful not to share.
A lovely lady named Anne contacted me a few months ago to enquire whether or not I would be interested in purchasing her Blood Milk Mini Lunar Oracle Moon Phase Planchette necklace for a fraction of the selling price. She purchased it a few years ago and unfortunately found that it did not suit her and was hoping to find a new home for it. As you can imagine, I was delighted! I adore Blood Milk but shopping costs and customs are incredibly expensive. I purchased the Belonging to the Darkness ring last year (you can find that post here) to celebrate completing my undergraduate degree and I have been lusting after another piece ever since.
The planchette is cast in sterling silver and is engraved with the transforming moon. The size is perfect for me; the regular would have definitely been too large. It's perfect to wear alone or for layering. The little circular glass window is my favourite part of this piece. It gives it an ethereal and otherworldly quality, and it reflects the light wonderfully.
This has already become my favourite necklace. It's dramatic enough to make a simple outfit interesting, but it's also simple enough to wear to university or for work. I always intended to purchase a planchette necklace, but I think it's especially lovely that it came to me from another home. I'm incredibly grateful that somebody would think of me when they were looking to rehome one of their jewels!
As always, I am already admiring other beautiful Blood Milk pieces to add to my little collection. At the moment I'm admiring the Belonging to the Underworld ring in the high polish finish, and the Endless Night Part II ring. I think I might have to save up and purchase another piece for completing my masters' degree!
This necklace is available from the Blood Milk website.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
