Say Hello Diamonds Giveaway ~ CLOSED


I have talked before about investment pieces (here) and wardrobe essentials for each season (Winter, Fall, Spring, Summer).  Similar to a LBD or those perfect nude pumps, a must-have jewelry piece for every woman's collection is a pair of diamond studs.  Obviously, we can't all afford the real version...but, thankfully jewelers have come a long way towards creating simulated styles that have just as much sparkle for a more reasonable cost. 

I was recently introduced to Say Hello Diamonds (you may recognize the name from their December feature on the Today Show).  They offer gorgeous replica diamond jewelry that looks like the real thing, but costs much less!  When they sent me their rhodium-coated 2 carat Pantina studs to review, I compared the earrings to the Hearts on Fire diamond in my wedding ring and honestly could NOT tell a difference (sorry honey!).  And it's no surprise, considering each stone is put through a rigid selection & inspection process before being chosen to use in their stunning jewelry.  Just to give you an idea of how these look on:


Here's a closer look at them:


Just in time for Valentine's Day, I have partnered with Say Hello Diamonds to giveaway not one, but two pairs of these brilliant stud earrings ($195 value/each).  They come in a red velvet box and would make a perfect gift for a friend, sister or this upcoming Mother's Day (of course, you can keep them for yourself too - I wouldn't blame you!).  Here is what you need to do to enter:

* Be a follower of PPF on BlogLovin, RSS, Google, Google+, Facebook or Twitter (see sidebar for these options)
* Sign up for the Say Hello Diamonds mailing list (here) - they will not share your information and will only send you sale alerts
* Leave a comment below with your email address so I can contact you if you win

You have 1 week to enter - contest ends 2/19 at midnight EST and I will announce the winners the following day.  If you just can't wait to see if you won, you can shop their store here (they are currently offering 40% off your entire order using code DIAMOND40 + free standard shipping on all orders in the US & Canada).  Good luck!!

it's just not fair how flawless your skin/makeup always look! my hubby bought me a pair of diamond stud earrings the first xmas we were married and he always gets mad at me because i rarely wear them! i LOVE them but they are screw backs and i hate wearing any jewelry in the shower so taking them on and off was a pain. now i feel bad...maybe i'll wear them for valentines day...lol.

xoxo, jenn
