Sparkly, beautiful bargains

Hello lovelies, hope everyone is okay and all set for Christmas! Yesterday I spent the day shopping with my friends for some last minute gifts. Inevitably this resulted in me treating myself! I only bought a couple of things but I had a great time nonetheless. I also managed to grab some fabulously sparkly bargains in the form of these little beauties...

I saw them in one of the brand boutiques/concessions sections of House of Fraser; I've never heard of the brand 'Touch' before, but I fell in love with these beautiful sparkling creatures and was desperate to get my hands on them. I absolutely adore anything sparkly, but my heart leaps a little when I see anything sparkly that resembles an animal/creature of some sort. I don't know what it is, but animal/insect jewellery really appeals to me, I think it's so pretty!

Ladybug ring: £2.25 (originally £4.50)

Cute Bird Ring: £3.25 (originally £6.50)

Insect Bracelet: £2.20 (originally £5)

Elephant Ring: £4 (originally £8)

Then when I saw the prices, I fell in love even more. The prices were fantastic anyway, with necklaces for £6, earrings for £5 etc., but when I saw they were all half price (some even less than half price!) I thought Christmas had come early!

I think the cute little birdies ring is absolutely adorable as well as being quite unusual - I've never seen a ring like it before anyway! I ummed and ahhed over the insect bracelet and a necklace very similar, but decided the necklace was perhaps a tad 'too much' and went for the bracelet instead. I began frantically searching for my size as soon as I saw the elephant ring - it is absolutely stunning and I couldn't believe I'd found such a beauty! I left the shop extremely happy and with only £11.70 less on me.

What do you all think to my purchases? Do you like glitzy/animal jewellery or do you prefer something a little different?
