Wow! How are we at the end of the year already? Is it just us or has this year just flown by? Now that we have come to the end of the year we wanted to share some of Harfi's 2021 highlights.
1) In The Press
We are so excited to have been featured in so many wonderful articles this year, from Hello and OK Magazine to The Telegraph and The Daily Mail.
We were delighted to see our Initial & Birthstone necklace casually beaming in a few of our favourite publications. It was featured in Hello Magazine's top sustainable and eco-friendly Christmas gift guide, Stylist's top alphabet necklaces to shop now, GQ's best personalised Christmas gift list, the Daily Mail's top fashion choices and The Guardians editor's best picks to name a few!
With star sign jewellery becoming a huge trend right now, especially with celebrities (word has it Rihanna and Hailey Bieber are loving this trend too) we were over the moon (excuse the pun) to spot our Astra Zodiac necklace in Indy Best's selection of the best celebrity-inspired accessories you can buy.
We were also thrilled to see our Coco beaded hoops glowing in the Daily Mail. Our hoops were handpicked by stylist editor Bemi Shaw as the perfect finishing touch to a party outfit!
2021 also included our biggest ever collaboration with Cosmopolitan where we ran a huge giveaway of our gold pearl hoop earrings which received 20k entrants. Well done to everyone who won!
We were also very excited to spot our best selling Rose necklace (you have great taste by the way) in Lux Review's ultimate luxury Christmas gift guide. We were very proud to have a number of our other Harfi pieces named in many other Christmas gift lists such as Mumsnet, Arcadia, Kensington & Chelsea Review and Your Devon & Cornwall Wedding magazine.
2. Notonthehighstreet partnership
Earlier this year, we were very excited to partner with the well known gift retailer Notonthehighstreet. As a well loved and trusted brand with a focus on unique and thoughtful personalised gifts Notonthehighstreet are a brand that fits perfectly with Harfi's values and we were delighted to launch with them in August.
Earlier this year we announced more partnerships with a number of other amazing, ethical brands such as Ethical Market, GoEthical, Veo World, Ecomersh and Green Wallet. At Harfi, we are committed to ethical and sustainable methods of production and love to partner with other brands that share our ethos.
3. Reaching For The (5) Stars
At Harfi, we really pride ourselves on the quality of our products and customer service to provide the best possible customer experience. As a small business, every purchase comes with a personal touch and nothing makes us happier than reading your positive reviews. We have now smashed through 100 reviews on Trustpilot with 96% 5-star reviews. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to give us a review - it really means a lot!
4. Crossing The 10k Mark
We finally surpassed 10k followers on Instagram! Woohoo! Our Instagram @harfionline is our most active social media profile and the place where we love to engage with all of you lovely people. Give us a follow on there if you are interested to see our newest products, promotions, announcements and of course cute dog pictures :)
5. Going for Gold
In 2021, we were excited to introduce you to a number of new jewellery collections. With a passion for unique personalised gifts at Harfi, we continued to expand our range of birthstone jewellery. All of our new pieces were lovingly handmade using gold vermeil (pronounced vehr-may to be exact) to ensure they keep their shine for a long time. We also upgraded all of our packaging so that every order arrives beautifully boxed and ready to gift.
Thank you so much for all the support, we couldn't have done any of this without you!
We wish you all a happy and healthy year ahead. See you in 2022!
