Anniversary Gift

Beautiful, tasteful jewelry, bought as a gift for my wife for our 54th anniversary. She loves it and wears it all the time.

Happy Anniversary to you both! Thank you, Richard, I'm glad she loves it!

Fantastic Quality

After seeing the jewelry in person at Art in the Square, I knew I had to get my girlfriend these beautiful earrings. She loves them for their appearance, and I love the unique design. Looking forward to getting some more pieces in the future!

Thank you Read! I'm so glad she loves the earrings!

Cactus bracelet

This bracelet is such a beautiful piece. I love the nature behind the design. It compliments the ring with the same design that I bought years ago. The quality and craftsmanship is admired by many people when I wear it.

I'm so glad you love your bracelet - and the complimentary ring! :)

Simply Beautiful!

I've purchased these earrings - and a necklace in this same series - many times for gifts and finally decided to purchase a pair for myself. They are delicate and light and have a simple elegance that makes them perfect to wear them for casual or dress. So glad I finally treated myself to a pair - everyone I've given any Lila Claire jewelry to has loved what they've received and I love it too!

I'm glad you love the pieces that you bought for yourself! And I appreciate that you've given the pieces as gifts too. Thank you!

My girlfriend loves it!

My girlfriend wears this almost every time I see her. It’s a very nice and unique piece and she has even been complimented on it by strangers.

Thank you Colin! I'm glad she loves it!

Cactus cuff jewelry

I love my new cactus cuff bracelet!
It enhances my cactus ring, which I’ve had for several years and wear daily. Many compliments, unique design.

Thank you Marcy! I'm glad you love both of your pieces!

Just Lovely

The stone that are chosen by the artist are charming and lovely colors. Simple, elegant!

Thank you so much Joan!

Unique cactus necklace

Love the necklace! It matches the ring I bought. So beautiful and unique! Great quality!

I'm so glad you love your necklace and ring!! :)

Silver prickly pear earrings

Beautiful a perfect compliment to my prickly ring. I cannot wait to receive the necklace I ordered.

Thank you Marcia! I love that you're collecting pieces! :)

The start

This ring was the start of my meeting Clare at the Tempe fair in Az. I asked her to set a gem in this ring and that was the start of many, many purchases. My daughters and granddaughter also have many pieces since Clare’s jewelry makes super gifts. Her pieces are easy to wear and no matter is you are in a sundress or dressed up, she has something special for every occasion. I have never been disappointed with any piece of jewelry I have purchased. Thank you Clare for your artistic flair!

Thank you Sue! I love working with you!!

Great unique gift!

Well worth it to get this necklace for a loved one. My mom rarely wears jewelry and when she got this, she fell in love with it immediately!

Thank you Martha! I'm so glad your mom loves her necklace! :)

Earring lover!

I first found Lila Clare's designs at an art festival near me and have to say I was so intrigued with the concept of how she designed her jewelry, I had to have my own pair of earrings. Every time I wear them, someone stops me and asks about them. I highly recommend her jewelry for anyone!

Thank you! These are my favorite earrings. :) I'm glad you love them too!

Amazing piece!

This ring is so simple, yet so elegant. I get compliments every time I wear it. Clare is such an amazing artist and it shows in every piece she creates.

Thank you for this amazing review Megan! :)

Stunning in Gold

Purchased as a graduation gift. The recipient loved it! The necklace is so unique and looks stunning in Gold vermil. This is not the first piece I've purchased from Clare, and it won't be the last.

J - I'm so glad the grad loves her necklace! :)

So pretty!

I love this little gemstone necklace!! The opaque aqua stone is beautiful and the little leaf is so unique. The design is such that it always stays in place, not like others where the clasp ends up migrating to the front.

I'm so glad you're happy with this piece. I designed it for this exact functionality - the leaf and gem focal fixed in place and clasp stays in the back! Enjoy it!!

Slender band cactus ring is my all-time favorite!

Since I purchased this ring back in 2014, I have rarely taken it off. I love the delicacy and the reference to nature that comes from the designer's use of cactus. Living in the southwest, it is the perfect accessory. It literally goes with everything!

Thank you Mary! I'm so happy that you continue to wear and love the ring after 10 years!

Love my Teardrop Cactus Earrings by Lila Clare

I bought Lila Clare's Pointed Teardrop Cactus Hoop Earrings at an art festival and love them so much I had to buy another pair for my daughter. Gorgeous and perfect with every outfit. LOVE THEM <3

Thanks Robin! I'm so glad you love them!! :)

My new favorites!

These are now my go to earrings for everyday , casual wear. They are the perfect size. Very lightweight! Very unique:) love them!

Thank you Misty! I love that they're your new favorites!!

Love it!

This is the perfect size pendant for me. The smaller sized necklace is great for casual, everyday wear. So unique!

Thank you Misty! I'm so glad you love the necklace. I hope you do wear it everyday!!

Beautiful necklace

Very pretty necklace, light weight and comfortable. I have the matching earrings and they are pretty as well.

Hi Ardell! I'm so happy you like your pieces. :) Enjoy them!

My wife loves it

My wife got the prickly pear skeleton ring at an art show and lamented she didn't get the bracelet to match. Got it for mother's day and she absolutely loves it! Fast shipping and nice gift box too.

Thanks Phil! I'm glad she has the matching set now. :) I hope to see you two next time I'm Texas!


I love this ring. I’ve had my eye on it for quite some time and it’s just perfect. Well made, comfortable and gorgeous.

Tiffany! I'm so glad you finally got your ring! I can't wait to see it on at the next Tucson art festival. :)

Silver band cactus ring

Could not be more pleased.
It is a beautiful crafted ring.

Marcia, thank you so much. I'm glad you are so pleased with the ring!

Gold bracelet

In our 50 years of marriage, my wife has never wanted jewelry. UNTIL I bought her the Slender Cactus Cuff Bracelet from Clare for Mother’s Day. I gave it to her when it arrived 2 weeks ago. She now wears it everywhere! It is elegant and it enhances her beauty!
Thanks Clare!

I love that she loves her jewelry! And I'm so glad she's wearing it everywhere. :) Thank you both!!

Beautiful ring!!!

Thank you Yvonne!
