Cosmo Necklace Review From Jewellery Company Carat* London

If you are looking for some beautiful jewellery for a special occasion or to treat yourself you may think of diamond inset jewellery or sparkling gemstones like sapphire or emerald. The problem with most precious stones is the fact that the majority of them are mined causing damage to the environment. However, did you know there are alternatives to minded gemstones?  Let's have a look at some of these alternatives and some of the jewellery Carat* London sell. This is an advertorial. Carat* London has sent me a necklace in exchange for an honest review. 

Who are Carat * London?

Carat* London are a jewellery brand that was established almost 20 years ago. Their mission is to work exclusively with the finest alternatives to mined gemstones. They believe beautiful jewellery doesn't have to damage the environment.  Carat* London now sell in over 100 places around the world and have a strong celebrity following including Lady GaGa, Ellie Goulding and  Courtney Love. They are a big supporter of British performing arts and sponsor BAFTA, the British Academy Of Film and television arts in the UK. 

What type of jewellery does Carat* London sell?

Carat* London sell a range of jewellery made with alternatives to mined gemstones. From necklaces to earrings, to rings to bracelets, everything is made with diamonds and gemstones that are made in a lab and not mined from the ground. They say that they believe all gemstones should have gentle beginnings and I love this ethos. Sustainable lab-created diamonds are so much better for the planet than traditionally mined diamonds and you are also reassured that these are not conflict diamonds as well. 

Carat* London sent me a necklace to review for the purpose of this post. The necklace was delivered in a white branded Carat* London box with a grey branded ribbon. The box looked very smart and would make a great gift.


The Cosmo necklace is a very beautiful two layered chain necklace. On the shorter chain (25cm) is a star shaped Stella pendant. On the longer chain (46cm) is a small Marquis shaped drop pendant. The longer chain has small stones dotted along the chain.

The chain is sterling silver with a white gold finish. What I love about this necklace is that it sparkles in the light.

The detailing at the back adds to the beauty of the necklace. It has two sliders that allow you to adjust the length of the chains. This makes it perfect if you have a low cut dress or want to wear it higher. It's easy to adjust the length of the chains with the slider. 


The stunning Cosmo necklace retails at £249 and has earrings to match. I think for the quality of the necklace this is a reasonable price. This necklace is perfect to wear with a black dress for a glamorous occasion.
