Stella & Dot Giveaway and Review

My sweet friend Kathryn introduced me to Stella and Dot jewelry a few weeks ago. I had seen a few pieces before this one that I really liked from this company, so I'm so glad she did! 

I was immediately impressed with the packaging.  The earrings that I got came in the cutest little gift box.  This would be perfect to send for a birthday or anniversary gift.
These are the Serenity Stone drop earrings.  I absolutely love them.  They are really the kind of earrings that go with just about everything.  I have worn them several times now...I think there have been a couple of pictures of me wearing them on the blog.  The color is a greenish turquoise.  These are bright and would go great with a summer outfit, but they are a little bit more muted than most turquoise jewelry you're seeing, so they could work well in fall/winter too. 
And I CANNOT say enough about the quality.  They are very, very well made.  The stones are a dyed jade that is set in a gold-plated brass.  This is the kind of jewelry that will last for years and years!  Lately, I have really been trying to buy higher quality, timeless jewelry that will last, instead of buying cheap costume jewelry that is going to fall apart in a couple of years.  If you're in the market for quality, timeless jewelry, this is your line!
Y'all will see me in these quite a bit.  Definitely a nice addition to my growing jewelry addiction. :)

I am so excited that I am currently hosting a Stella and Dot party with Kathryn.  I have been looking through the site and drooling over all of the beautiful pieces!  Here are a few of my favorites...
The Olivia Bib Necklace....I am so big into bib necklaces right now, and this one would be perfect!  I love the coloring for fall.
 The Valentina Chandelier Earrings.  Once again, classic and timeless.  And I'm loving bigger earrings right now!

The Devi Bangles in pretty and understated are these?  I have itty bitty wrists, so this would be perfect for me!

And here's your chance to feed your jewelry addiction too...Kathryn has been so nice to give one of y'all a pair of black Gigi studs!  These are a $24 value and are another example of how beautiful Stella and Dot jewelry is.
