byBiehl Gothic Glam Pods

bybiehl-momento-mori-braceletOne of my favorite new addictions is byBiehl and I’ve been busy acquiring a number of their pods (aka charms) and bracelets over the summer.  The brand’s aesthetic is classy and chic with a touch of rocker glam.  Since I’m featuring Halloween designs this month, I thought to introduce the following byBiehl pods as an example of how the gothic style can look oh so elegant.  This review will focus on Starry Night, Memento Mori Glam, and the Serpent.

Starry Night, Memento Mori Glam, the Serpent are my first pods that feature the amazing pavé set cubic zirconia that I have been drooling over from byBiehl.  Starry Night has various size stars set with black pavé CZ for emphasis; the stars are matte brushed silver which really highlights the sparkle of the crystals.  Memento Mori Glam is an oxidized pod with a skull motif surrounded by black pavé CZ for a gothic effect.  The Serpent also has black pavé CZ but it is a dual-tone pod with a high polish silver snake slithering along and he has a black CZ eye.

The byBiehl pods are only compatible with their own bracelet system as they’re a unique concept.  The brand offers leather bracelets and also more recently a silver one as well.  They can be purchased from the main byBiehl website or my recommended retailer Perlen.  I love stacking my byBiehl bracelets together and these are perfect for a glamorous spooky look.  What you think of these sparkly scary pods?

    I am loving By Biehl. Their price point is pretty high compared to other jewelry on Perlen. Are the pods heavy? It looks like just one is $100! How does the price and quality compare?

      They are definitely at a higher price point, but the quality is good and they use a lot of silver. They’re heavy and hand finished, plus you don’t need as many on a bracelet, so the total cost is probably about the same. The openworks ones are lighter and the price reflects that. 🙂

      byBiehl is really nice, I love the glamorous edgy look! 😉 Which Alex and Ani bracelet did you get? Those are so addictive.

        Oh Leann, my Alex and Ani collection grows by the day!! I purchased the new Swarovski silver one…it is VERY blingy…and the crystals in the middle are a very light pink! I thought it appropriate for Breast Cancer Awareness. I liked it better than the starfish with the pink center. I get in so much trouble when I find new brands!! 🙂

        Perfect! That sounds wonderful :).
