Product Review: Hijab Treasures

Hijab Treasures is a relatively new website which stocks a range of pins, pin cushions, clips and brooches. I was sent a few items to review: Fancy Triangle Hijab PinDiamond Water Rose Hijab PinFansy Drops White Hijab Pin and the Silver Crystal and Pearl Flower Brooch.

The package arrived via Royal Mail and each item came in a little organza bag, except for the Fancy Triangle Hijab Pin which came in a box.

Personally, I picked out the more subtle designs available, as they're what I'd be likely to actually use. That said, Hijab Treasures do have brighter and more colourful designs if that's what you're looking for.

All of the pins are 6cm long, with a removable fastener, but are probably too large to use on delicate hijabs. These particular designs I thought add a little sparkle without being overwhelming, and you could easily wear them on a daily basis.

The brooch though is fairly large, but the design of is really pretty and would look great for a special occasion or evening out. As with many brooches, it's a little heavy to be used on the hijab itself though you could wear it on a jacket or blazer.

The quality of the pins and brooch is average for the price (£1.99 - £5.99). I did notice a few crystals out of place, but nothing you would notice without looking very carefully. Overall I think they would make great gifts, and the company are really easy to deal with.
