Quick! Excluding family, friends, or pets, what are three things you love? The first three that come to mind for me are bears, pizza, and purple. Based on that, it should come as no surprise that when JORD offered me the chance to review one of their watches, I chose the Cora in Purpleheart. Not to be obvious, but I heart it. And not just because it's purple.
First, I love that I was able to have it sized to my "teeny tiny wrists" (as the woman working the wristband table at our local Comic Con described them). This one does not slide down my arm to my elbow but rather stays on my wrist, without hanging over the sides #simplepleasures. To say it's a gorgeous watch is an understatement. The mother of pearl pairs so nicely with the purpleheart, and the Swarovski crystal markers aren't a bad touch either ;-)
Aesthetics aside, as someone who cares about conservation, I did give pause to the concept of a wood watch. Their website actually provides information about the sustainability of each watch. I learned that some of the wood they use is reclaimed, and while some is harvested, it is done with minimal environmental impact. Ultimately, JORD is a younger company but is striving for 100% sustainability. Kudos to the company, and kudos to the specialist I worked with - she was so patient and understanding; I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
