SGSG-Novica Review and Giveaway!!

Hey everyone, to close out the giveaways in the Spectacular Gift Shopping Guide, I want to share a really great company with you. Novica is unique in that it is a website where artisans from all trades and countries can showcase and sell their wonderful pieces. From jewelry to paintings, and vases to clothing, you can find such a wonderful assortment of unique, one-of-a-kind gift ideas! 
I was able to choose an item for my review, and after much searching, finally settled on a lovely Garnet ring called "Passion's Glow". This ring was crafted by Bhavesh, and artisan in India. After placing my order, it took a few days for the order to ship, and then about a week for me to receive it. I was hopeful that the sizing was true, since last time I ordered a ring via internet it came in much too large. So, as soon as the package came in I opened it to find a pretty jewelry box, and inside, my Garnet ring. 

It is even prettier than the picture looks! And it fits perfectly! I am so happy with my new ring! I have received so many compliments about it. Bhavesh also included a postcard from India in the package, which the entire family thought was really neat.
