Some weeks ago I was contacted by a lovely lady called Jessie.
“I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My name is Jessie and I have just launched an independent jewellery store online called Curved Rose – specialising in contemporary jewellery in larger sizes.
After working in the retail jewellery industry for 12 years, I decided to go it alone and launch Curved Rose. It became apparent to me whilst working in a modern, high street jeweller, that many women were unable to buy the jewellery that they would like, as it was not available in their size. Curved Rose is all about offering a great choice of ready to wear, contemporary silver jewellery, but in sizes for plus size women.“
I was really excited to hear of a company like hers, as I know myself and others definitely struggle to find items that are beautiful and elegant in larger sizes. Curved Rose has a well laid out website with plenty to choose from, and I loved almost every other item! And so I cheekily asked if I might try this gorgeous ‘Into The Blue’ ring as I don’t have the slimmest of hands, and I am a sucker for anything blue/green/turquoise.
Jessie was very lovely and offered to send the ring over the very next day. Using the sizing guide I identified the best size for my selected finger as being ‘S’, and I eagerly awaited it’s arrival.
It also came with a care sheet that had a personal feel and nice clear instructions on how to keep my jewellery in tiptop condition.
I tried the ring on straight away, but to my dismay it was slightly big due to me being an amateur at measuring my finger.
However, Jessie was an absolute angel and sent me out a new one that arrived the next day, even before I had returned the larger one. The new ring was a perfect fit and I adore it!
As you can see, the extra little something turned out to be the gorgeous matching ‘Into The Blue’ necklace! It fit me perfectly and sat at a flattering height on my decolletage. I was genuinely touched by Jessie’s generosity, and I absolutely adored it!
I am definitely one for larger colourful pieces of jewellery over small dainty pieces, and these pieces from Curved Rose were a perfect fit for me. Classy and elegant enough to make me look like a lady when needed, but bold enough to make something of a statement.
I am a huge fan of silver over gold, and these pieces looked and felt high quality. The prices really do reflect the pieces, and Jessie has a real talent and eye for what looks good on a larger woman. As seen in this interview on Plus Size Millard, Jessie has been working on her current collection for 8 months, and I am excited to see how she progresses now that she has launched.
Sadly the dress is not quite what I had hoped for from a custom dress. The design I chose had a lot of material in the bust area, and for that reason they seemed unable to fit it to my waist. I’m glad I bought it and had the experience of the process, but my curiosity has been sated and I will stick to my pin up style dresses!
Are you happy to hear of Curved Rose? Do you struggle to find beautiful elegant jewellery in larger sizes?
