Callooh and Callay: Amazing Jewelry!

One of my dear friends Lillian recently opened a shop with her (adorable) girlfriend Claire called Callooh and Callay. It is a jewelry shop containing an array of different items. Most of them are inspired by pop culture, but they also had a Halloween collection with bats and pumpkins and other spooky things.


As you know, Lillian is part of The Makeup Heroes collab so I naturally wanted to try a few things. I ordered through their website: http://calloohandcallay.storenvy.com/. I was able to checkout with Paypal and my credit card and had no issues receiving my receipt or a shipping notice.

I ordered the 'Jareth the Owl' necklace and the 'Balloon Heart' necklace. Jareth the Owl was $16.00 and the heart was $14.00. I find those prices to be insanely reasonable, and I'll tell you why.

The branding of this company is strong, and I absolutely love it. I know Lillian is my friend but because she is my friend, I feel the need to be even more honest! I love the circus theme and their banner, and even the small touches like the red and white striped paper that my necklaces came in. This isn't just a randomized start up company by people looking to make money. They had an idea, they went with it, and they've created a strong brand around their name. I look forward to seeing what they put out in the future!



Both of my items came in little black boxes (which is great for storing the necklaces or using for other things) and a few business cards. The charms are made of cut acrylic, while the chain is a fine grade silver. Neither of these necklaces are particularly long; they will sit at the middle of your chest. The balloon heart did have a slightly longer chain.

There's not much else to say here other than the fact that I love my necklaces! I'm a huge Labyrinth fan and the heart is unique and fun. I've gotten compliments each time I've worn them and I'm proud to report that even with my sensitive skin, I've had no allergic reactions to the metals or materials used... so I'll do a bit of a model for you:



Do check out Callooh and Callay (and let me know what you order!). Their Christmas collection should be out soon!
