Love this brooch so much, I had a little issue and the assistance given was amazing, it was really appreciate you guys went over & beyond thanks so much
This brooch is fantastic for dressier outfits due to the gold outline on the shell; it really elevates the piece!
My turtle is admired where ever I wear it.
As soon as I opened the parcel I fell in love with my latest piece, the Ancient Altruism brooch. The packaging is perfect, makes me feel my purchase is very exclusive (and I love the environmentally friendly features). Then I opened the box and saw this gorgeous turtle with rich colouring and gold accents. He's just stunning.
Every time I wear one of my Erstwilder brooches I get lovely admiring comments.
I love the detail in the work and the colour is stunning
