When it comes to jewelry of any sorts it’s usually a hit or miss with me, I am the kind of person that will know instantly if I am a love it or leave it kind of gal. For most of my jewelry I tend to gear towards small and dainty while when it comes to watches I lean to big and chunky most of the time. So imagine when I was introduced to JORD watches, I was instantly obsessed and intrigued. I mean how could a watch be made of pure wood? Is that even something possible? How will it hold up next to my chunkier metal watches? Let’s be honest this girl is PICKY when it comes to some arm candy- hey its prime daily real estate. Instantly I read the guide on how to accurately find my correct size in the JORD watch before ordering. Super eager to get my new arm candy, I anxiously awaited until this beauty arrived…
If you haven’t already heard of JORD watches or seen them in person, you NEED to ASAP! JORD is a Swedish word for Earth, soil or land, works with a collective of designers to create modern, gorgeous and sustainable timepieces. Seriously their timepieces are stunning! I received two watches from JORD- the gorgeous Cora Watch in Cora Koa + Rose Gold –$275 USD* and the stunning Sidney Watch in Red Sandalwood + Mother of Pearl–$199 USD*, needless to say I am OBSESSED with these watches. The craftsmanship and design of these watches is simply impeccable. From the fact that they are handcrafted and made with detail and love, these watches are seriously some of the most gorgeous pieces I have ever seen.
Super lightweight on the wrist, and extremely durable these gorgeous stunners have been in heavy rotation on my wrist since receiving them. The pair perfectly by themselves or with a simple rose gold bangle or gold bracelet. I literally have received so many compliments on these watches as they are just brilliantly beautiful! JORD pays so much attention to detail that the wooden casing that the watches arrive in is simply made with so much detail the case is a masterpiece in its own right. I am equally obsessed with both watches so let me break down a few key components of each for you:
The Cora Series watch is an automatic watch that features gorgeous Swarovski crystal markers. The watch has beautiful sapphire crystal glass and a round aperture that has a clear view into the amazing automatic movement to show you the behind the scenes of the watch- love that! It also is made with the finest natural Kora that is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The watch is splashproof however it should NOT be submerged into water. It’s the perfect companion to an arm party.
The Sidney Series watch is an automatic watch that blends sophistication with a edgy vibe. The gorgeous blend of Red Sandlewood and Mother of Pearl this watch is the ethereal vision of beauty with a modern feel. This watch has beautiful sapphire crystal glass composed with 3 round mother of pearl clocks to show the amazing automatic movement to show you the 24 hours, minutes, and seconds of the day. It is made with a beautiful natural red sandlewood that has been hand finished and pretreated with tung oil. The watch is splash proof however it should NOT be submerged into water. This watch is simply BEAUTIFUL on the wrist. It can work perfect with boho style, casual wear as well as a more dressed up vibe and I am OBSESSED!!!
