When JORD Watches reached out to me weeks ago to collaborate, I approached it the way I always do when such opportunities come my way, I first researched their website, then dug a little deeper to learn what customers were saying before saying ‘yes’. It’s important to me that I only share products and brands with you, my readers, that meet the highest standards and are in fact items I would use/wear.
After choosing my favorite style and providing my wrist measurements (they provide a really easy tool to get the right fit), I was delighted to open up the box once my watch arrived. All of their watches come in this wooden embossed JORD logo box hugging a pillow to keep it in place which protects and houses the watch when you’re not wearing it. There are anti-humidity packs that slide into a little ventilated drawer under the watch to help regulate humidity-important for wood.
While I had my eye on a few different styles, in the end I chose the Koa and rose gold model from the Cora series which is made of Koa wood (a species native to Hawaii) with a rose gold face adorned with Swarovski crystal markers. You all know my love for blush pink and rose gold! The face is made of sapphire glass vs. regular glass, known in the luxury watch industry as the definitive material for transparency and durability. This ensures that your watch face will remain scratch-resistant and remain as clear as the day you first wear it.
While I have a few timepieces in my jewelry box that I adore, because they are made with classic silver and gold bands, I most often wear them when dressing up or for the workplace. One thing is for sure, this one is unique and adds a casual vibe that I love wearing with jeans. Most weekends I can generally be found wearing a maxi dress and denim jacket or jeans & a top, so my new JORD watch is a welcomed addition and one that I’ve received compliments on as well as questions in the 2 months of owning it. I have to say, I really enjoy the scent of the wood too, it’s so earthy and helps to make this nature-lover feel a little bit more connected to nature even when I can’t be.
When I originally measured my wrist I went for an ultra snug fit so it wouldn’t be loose, which ended up being too tight (that was my own fault) so I reached out to the JORD customer service team to see what I could do to have one of the links added. Being a wood watch, I didn’t want to entrust it to just any watch or jewelry shop. They were so helpful and had me return it to them to take care of after providing my updated measurements. It wasn’t long after that I received it back with a perfect fit! I’m glad I misjudged my wrist size because it gave me the opportunity to see how the JORD team treats their customers, which is always as important to me as the item itself.
If you have someone in your life who seems to have everything and you’re forever searching for a great gift to buy them that is both unique and practical, I believe a JORD watch is your answer! I really love the women’s collection of watches, but I have to admit the men’s watches are really attractive too. They would make the perfect anniversary gift, graduation present and of course birthday or Christmas surprise. These luxury watches are quite reasonably priced too, most ranging between $139-$275.
