Today I wanted to talk to you about my brand new necklace that I got from Curiology. I only recently discovered the brand, exactly because I saw this necklace online and wanted to have it, but they originally started back in 2010 and the people behind it are a husband and wife duo, Elspeth and Liam Johnson.
The necklace itself is a tribute to David Bowie, the lyric 'It's Only Forever' is from the song Underground, which was featured in my favourite film of all time, Labyrinth. Bowie plays the fearsome Goblin King Jareth, who takes away baby Toby, while his sister Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) has 13 hours to find her way through the labyrinth to the castle beyond the goblin city and take back the baby.
The full lyrics goes 'It's only forever, not long at all, that's Underground' and if you have time you can listen to the full song here. The black star in the necklace is also in honour of Bowie's last album Blackstar.
One of the things I particularly liked about the ordering process on the Curiology site is that I was able to customise it (within limit). As you may or may not know, I do not particularly like silver so having the option of a black chain instead was great for me. If you are a salver fan however, you can select that for the same price or the sterling silver one for an added £5.
The second customisable feature is the material of the necklace itself. You can pick between glitter black (what I picked), gloss black, satin white, rainbow glitter and iridescent. The black glitter material is a little bit bendy and thus feels delicate, which I like for a song quote necklace. It is like wearing a precious piece of fairytale.
If there is one thing I would probably change with it is to make the chain a little bit longer as it sits quite high but this is not a huge problem. In general I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and at £10 I thought it was an absolute bargain. Any Labyrinth fan would love to own this item and I think it can make a great gift.
If you want to get this necklace for yourself you can find it here, or you can check out a few more Labyrinth inspired jewellery from Curiology here. Let me know what you think about the necklace and, if you decide to get one for yourself, the combination of colours you went for as this was something that took me some time to decide.
