Lucid New York Review and Giveaway - Extended Until 7/16! - CLOSED

I’m especially excited about the review I’ve got for everyone today!

Most of my reviews and giveaways have to do with Rosemary, but this one is a special treat just for us Women! Well, technically that’s not true as Rosemary was the deciding factor in which necklace I chose, but I’ll get to that in a bit.

I recently had the opportunity to review a gorgeous necklace from Lucid New York!

Lucid New York is a jewelry collection created by New York designer/writer/photographer Anna Sabino. Not only is Anna beautiful and stylish herself, but she’s extremely talented!

Lucid New York is sold in over 100 stores all over the world and has been featured in many popular magazines such as People, Nylon, and Vogue - just to name a few.

Anna’s collection is full of unique, handmade jewelry including necklaces, earrings, bracelets and cocktail rings. I absolutely LOVE so many of them! She is so creative and trendy; I could pick out something to wear for every occasion with all of her fabulous pieces.


When deciding which necklace I’d love to get for this review, I had a hard time narrowing it down, that’s for sure! The necklaces come in either sterling silver or 14k gold - I'm more of a silver gal, so that decision was easy. The necklace itself - not so much.

In the end I chose the puzzle necklace in sterling silver because it reminded me of Rosemary. She was after all, my missing piece.


Am I a complete dork that even when I select jewelry to wear I think of my sweet baby girl? Possibly, but I’m ok with that.

Anna had the necklace in stock already and shipped it right over to me. I received the necklace in an extremely timely fashion – three or four days after I first spoke with her it was around my neck!

It’s absolutely stunning!

The puzzle piece is a silver vermeil charm that is 5/8” by 1/2”. The charm comes on a stunning 16” handmade chain that is so perfect I have no idea how she can make it look so good! I am simply in awe of anyone who could make this delicate (yet sturdy) chain look just as good as one made by a machine. Both the clasp and the end jump ring are on very secure so I’m never worried about it breaking while I’m wearing it.

My absolute favorite feature of this necklace is how Anna secures her charms in the middle front so it’s not moving around.

One of my biggest pet peeves of charm necklaces has to be that the clasp always ends up in front right alongside the charm.

Not this one.

Since Anna has secured the charm to the middle of the chain, this ensures I’ll never have to rotate my necklace around my neck again! The charm is heavy enough so it always stays in the middle and therefore the clasp is always where it should be – in the back. LOVE this feature.

Another reason I love this feature is that I know I’ll never lose the charm!

If you look in my jewelry box you’re sure to find half dozen charms at the bottom that have fallen off their chains. It’s always a pain to try and find the matching chain, so by having the puzzle piece securely on the chain itself, this helps out with that issue as well.

I am so happy with my necklace!

It’s cute, it’s me, and it’s overall a really great necklace!

Head over to Lucid New York now to check out all of her great collection!

Don’t forget about her other pieces besides the necklaces. She’s got some cocktail rings that are perfection!!

Anna also has blog you can check out too where she tells all about her world adventures (like learning the trapeze in Turks and Caicos) and letts us in on her fabulous style finds. And trust me, her style IS indeed fabulous.

Anna has graciously agreed to do a giveaway for the same beautiful necklace I received!

  33. The necklaces are all awesome...my sis loves turtles and is TTC so I might have to gift her the turtle for her b-day. But for me, I'm a leaf girl, and an earring girl, so I would feel so cool rocking these:
