eBay Jewellery Haul


As I'm sure you all know, eBay is a great source of bargains for all us cheapskates and broke girls. However, I've always been very wary of buying things from eBay as one cannot see them in person before buying them and I have heard many stories of people receiving items of a completely different quality to that shown in the photos. I'm still not sure that I'd buy clothes off eBay quite yet but, after reading a post by Laura from LaurasAllMadeUp showing the things she had bought from this seller, I couldn't resist buying a few things as, at such a low price, it seemed worth the risk that they might be shoddy quality. 

Everything I bought cost between 99p and £1.50 and arrived extremely quickly; these items were shipped from China and the estimated delivery time was 2 - 4 weeks yet they arrived in only a week. I'm not sure if this is normal or if I got lucky but either way I'm pretty impressed! They are all pretty good quality and look like they cost much more than they did although they're still obviously very much costume jewellery. There are still quite a few things I've got my eye on but I'm resisting for now - just because it's cheap doesn't mean I should feel the need to buy EVERYTHING. I don't need that much jewellery. Or so I'm trying to tell myself.

Faux Leather Braided Watch - Looks lovely on but is a little inflexible and wont fit those with larger wrists.


Lace Collar Necklace - Probably my favourite purchase although I may shorten the chain somehow as it's a little long.




White Daisy Chain Necklace - Arguably the tackiest, cheapest looking thing I bought as it's very plasticy
but I love it! and for 99p you can't go wrong.

Have you made any eBay purchases recently? What sellers do you recommend buying from?

  6. I like the daisy necklace, I dont think it's tacky at all. I've bought so much stuff on Ebay and it's always hit and miss especially when you buy from a company. I've had a couple of pieces of jewelry break within 5 mins, but then I bought my creepers online and they've lasted me 2 years. Ebay is just a bit of a gamble.
