Harry Potter Style Hour Glass Necklace Review

Sometimes an offer of a review comes by that really suits the moment, and when I got the email about a Harry Potter style Time-Turner necklace, my 15 year old Harry Potter fan was sitting next to me. It would have been mean to refuse, especially as she had been looking at them a few days earlier.

The packaging is simple enough, and the necklace is solid, so it won't come to any harm, despite the hour glass in the centre. The chain is a good length, 33cm, and the necklace is actually fairly heavy.

There are 2 points that let this down. The gold-plating is thick, but not well done on my necklace, with a few bubbles which may well crack over time, and the fastening for the chain is plastic, which will be weaker than metal.

Everything else about this time-turner is great. The design is complex and well done, the movement is free and easy. The hour glass literally dumps it's sand in a fraction of a second, but it's real sand and real glass.

Around the edges of the rings, very clearly, is the inscription that is on Hermione's Time-Turner in Harry Potter:
I mark the hours, every one, nor have I yet outrun the sun. 
My use and value unto you are gauged by what you have to do. 


What does the Harry Potter time turner say around the edge

The Vision Creations Wizardry Gold Hour Glass Necklace currently retails at only £6.99 (with free postage for Amazon Prime customers). At that price it's an excellent gift for a Harry Potter fan, and a really interesting and unusual piece of jewellery. If they get the gold-plating spot on, then it would definitely be worthy of a far higher price tag.


We were sent our time-turner for review.
