Novica Review: Gifts From Around the World!

I've got to tell you about a great online store called Novica. I had never heard of Novica until I was approached about doing a review for them. I jumped on the internet to to see what it was all about.

Now this is impressive. Read their mission:

We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.

At the deepest essence of our philosophy, we want to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe.

We want you to know about who you're buying from. We want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.

In the spirit of the Internet, let us bring you together.

NOVICA. The World is Your Market.

Cool, huh? Doesn't that just make you want to go on and see all the unique jewelry, art, clothing, handbags, rugs, housewares and gifts from all around the globe? They even have corporate gifts section!

So, Novica gave me $100 to spend on their site. I loved the jewelry, so I spent it all there.

Here is what I got:

Sterling silver half hoop earrings, 'Moon in the Forest' for $20.49

Natural orchid gold-plated flower necklace, 'Sublime' for $26.99

Onyx and amethyst beaded necklace, 'Enchantment' for $44.95

Aren't they pretty? And I love that they are not something you would find at the local mall.

The website was so easy to navigate, checkout was a breeze and the shipping price was very reasonable.
My items all came from Thailand about a week after I ordered them. They were each individually encased in a beautiful gift box. Also included in the box was a story card that described the jewelry and also had a quote from the artist. That extra touch made the buying experience so personal.

I just love the jewelry I purchased from, and I love how Novica is giving these artisans from all around the world opportunities that they would not have otherwise.

Go check out and remember them when you have to buy a gift for the person who has everything! Guaranteed, they will appreciate the unique and personal gifts from
