P.S. Don’t forget to enter to win a pair of classic pearl stud earrings!
When it comes to the foundation pieces of a jewelry box, two items come to mind: diamond stud earrings, a wear-with-everything ring (be it a signet or cigar band), and a pair of classic pearl studs. My parents gave me a set of pearl earrings to celebrate my high school graduation. It was my first piece of “grown up” jewelry and while it’s been years (15, in fact!) since that day, I still treasure — and wear — them. (The diamonds didn’t come until college graduation!)
Today, I’m partnering with The Pearl Source to give you a chance to win a set of freshwater pearl earrings to add to your collection. The Pearl Source has been a family-owned jeweler for over 20 years with its roots as one of the first direct importers and wholesalers of loose pearls in the United States. The Los Angeles-based company still specializes in pearl jewelry, offering a range of pearls from affordable freshwater options to beautiful dark-hued Tahitian South Sea pearls to coveted white South Sea pearls.
Below, you can enter to win a pair of 8mm freshwater pearl studs just in time for the holidays! The earrings even prettier in person than in these photos. The quality is fantastic with a “very high” grade luster and a 14k white gold post (a must for anyone with sensitive skin). They arrive nestled in a navy box that’s perfect for gifting to someone special this holiday season, even if that someone special is yourself! The giveaway is open to U.S. residents and ends on Dec. 18. Good luck!
When you live in an area that experiences true winter weather, I don’t think it’s terribly overindulgent to own a wardrobe of coats to beat the frigid temperatures. After all, you’ll be reaching for one just about every day from November through March! Wearing the same coat day in and day out would become boring awfully fast!
In additon to a goes-with-everything black peacoat (which I recently purchased in mint, too), a brightly colored cocoon coat, a practical and flattering parka (that I’m still on the hunt for), my ideal coat collection includes a sophisticated day-to-night number like this gorgeous coat from Garnet Hill. The belted, wrap shape is effortlessly elegant while the faux fur collar makes for an eye-catching statement that’s perfect for the holiday season. It’s versatile, too. It elevates a pair of jeans, looks great with work garments, and complements cocktail dresses.
Just five ingredients and 40 minutes yields this sinful cake.
