Some people are allergic to food, medication, animals, pollen, or even dust. Nope, not me. At some point over the last few years I’ve developed an allergy to metal. While (I’ve been told) it’s mostly the nickel in various metals that’s the serial offender, coming into contact with certain contacts can make my skin itch, crack, peel and even bleed. Wearing most of my jewelry is out for more than a very short period of time since wearing most metal jewelry causes me pain and even thinking about wearing a watch is out of the question.
Fortunately though, this month I was offered the great opportunity to check out a fun, fashionable and definitely funky JORD watch. Designed to take people back to nature and away from today’s metal & rubber, JORD watches are unique in the fact that they are made of diverse woods from all over the world. Their designers combine the various grains and natural colors to ensure that every watch is truly unique, and with the watch being made of wood, not only is it totally cool and unique, but it also doesn’t bother those of us sensitive to metal either.
I was sent the Ely JORD watch in Black/Green/Maple. Elegantly packaged around it’s own little satin pillow, I knew instantly this beautiful watch would also make a great gift for someone if I wasn’t going to keep it all for myself. The design is very unique and stylish, and I love the texture of the wood grain.The fit is very comfortable, and the JORD watch looks great dressed up when I wear my suits to the office or dressed down with sweaters, jeans and boots on the weekends. The wooden design has even inspired me to search for some other wooden and leather jewelry to stack with it. The watch also doesn’t bother metal allergy, and is the first watch I’ve been able to wear in years!
