Review: Mother of Pearl Cross Necklace, Molly Brown London

It's been a good week at my house this week. Not because it snowed (it did) and not because we went out for a fabulous lunch (we also did) but because my 10 year old twin girls received a gift each from Molly Brown London. This stunning designer of children's Stirling silver jewellery has been dubbed as 'Tiffany for children' by Vogue and I can certainly see why.

Earlier this week I published a review of Miss E's super stylish heart shaped locket with diamond detailing on my other blog and now I'm happy to share the necklace that Miss M choose. She went for the Mother of Pearl Cross Necklace, which retails for £48. 

All Molly Brown London jewellery comes with the most beautiful packaging. My girls felt really special as they unwrapped the gorgeous pink packages all tied up with lush chocolate brown ribbon. Your silver necklace comes in a little plastic packet as that is the best way to store silver, airtight away from oxygen that could tarnish it. That plastic bag is then in a gorgeous pink mesh bag, inside a box and then inside the bag. It's like opening the most wonderful matryoshka doll.

As a Christian the sign of the cross is important to Miss M and she loved the difference of this piece with there being two crosses, one of which is gorgeous Mother of Pearl. This necklace would make an amazing present for a First Holy Communion, Christening, Baptism or as an Easter or Bridesmaids gift. 

The thick and sturdy belcher necklace is 16" and adjustable at 14". Each of the crosses measure 15mm x 10mm x 1mm and are thus a great size for small necks. 

The clasp on the belcher chain is a lovely sturdy lobster clasp and it was easy to open and close. You can also see the little paw print tag (with the hallmark on the other side) by the clasp and this is your assurance that this is a genuine piece of Molly Brown London jewellery. It also adds a little fun and it's lovely to discover that the brand name and the paw tag where inspired by the founders family pet Labrador, you guessed it - Molly Brown!

The Molly Brown London packaging is so beautiful that both girls have it on display in their bedrooms and the boxes are nice and sturdy and thus will keep their necklaces in great condition for years to come. It's a really nice touch to get the bags even though our necklaces came by post. They were in a box to ensure they stayed pristine and were layered with pink tissue paper. 

The standard delivery service is £3.95 for a tracked courier delivery that will take 2-3 days from placing your order. Even having one necklace personalised we still received ours in super fast time. 

Miss E received a diamond heart locket and she loves that as well. You can see the review of her locket over on Mummy from the Heart.

I have already placed an order with Molly Brown London for a couple of pairs of Stirling silver earrings which will be birthday presents for the girls. They were in the sale for £15 each and are thus a super bargain!

Disclosure: We received this necklace free of charge for the purpose of this review. I have not been instructed what to write and I remain honest.
