Diva is definitely worth a visit; but only if you are window shopping. Yes, they sell amazing accessories; but the price is just way too unreasonable (in fact, over the top).

I would recommend going to other shops like Aries instead. They sell accessories similar to Diva, but at much lower prices. So, unless you have a loose budget, do not buy Diva’s product; I cannot reiterate that enough.

Nevertheless, that having said, Diva’s products are still worth a look. Their accessories are more of funky/trendy and definitely colourful. They sell hair and fashion accessories like necklaces, hair bands etc. Personally, I would say they are suited more for gifts than for personal usage – they have necklaces for best friends!

Their products are catered for the younger generation – teenagers; because they are bright and loud. With regards to quality; it definitely isn’t top notch. My hair bands broke after a few times (it isn’t as if my head is bigger than the average), and the design on them started to fade off after a while.

That having said, when their items go on sale or they have promotions; go for it. They can sell 5 hair bands for around $9 and have pretty designs; quality however, not assured.

What attracted me to this store would be the categories of accessories they have in store. They have categorized their accessories into themes, for instance, nature or even BFF accessories. I love the charms on their BFF bracelets and necklaces and they have really unique designs.

What deterred me from getting my accessories from Diva was that the quality of their accessories isn’t worth the price you are paying for. I chanced upon a shelf of earrings in the store and while flipping through the earrings on display, I saw that there are actually missing ‘gems’ on the earrings. It gives us an impression that they do not really check their products whether if they are in good condition before putting on display. I am sure you can get similar designs in other accessories stores much cheaper than the price you’re paying for at Diva.

Best to get them during Sales period, where the accessories would usually go really low- as low as $3!

A small, brightly lit shop with lots of pretty accessories to feast your eyes on, Diva is not difficult to miss. Although visually appealing, my experience with its products is that they are not quality goods and get damaged easily. Also, they are quite pricey when they don't have promotions going on.

Most of my necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings have either faded in colour or tarnished in a short period of time. And I try very hard not to let them come into contact with water. But in a country so warm like Singapore, its difficult to keep accessories dry as perspiration will always come in contact with them. I've also had a very disappointing encounter of a necklace falling apart because it was too heavy and the parts holding the necklace together were not strong enough. That was just after wearing it twice. I ended up having to fix the necklace on my own. For its level of quality, I definitely do not think the prices are worth it.

Although its staff are generally polite and friendly, they keep hanging around you and sometimes follow you around the store, hovering behind. It can get a little frustrating especially when they try to promote every single piece of item they think has caught your eye. For people who prefer to be left alone to shop in peace, this can be quite a bother. I don't blame them; they're probably just doing their job but this is one reason I always leave after giving a quick browse.

All that said, during their sale periods you might be able to find a good deal or two. My advice would be to void the gold and silver plated items as they will definitely lose its visual appeal in time.
