Diamond and Amethyst Earrings Give Away!!

I'm so thrilled to be hosting my very first GIVEAWAY and what a GIVEAWAY it is!!!!

I have been holding back a few secrets from my blogging buddies, one of them being that I buy and sell vintage jewelry. Love collecting this stuff and I'm always buying and selling to help build up my own collection.

So to celebrate the upcoming Christmas Season, I will be GIVING AWAY a beautiful pair of 10K Yellow and White Gold Amethyst and Diamond earrings!!!!

Now, let me clear up one thing.  These earrings are vintage ie pre-loved however they have been thoroughly inspected, cleaned and polished and are in gorgeous, ready to wear condition.  They will be mailed out in a lovely red cardboard jewelry box to the lucky winner!

A little about these lovely little beauties!








Each 10K solid yellow gold stud houses a beautiful oval faceted amethyst surrounded by 10 genuine diamond (tested) accent stones.  Each amethyst is 3mm x 5mm with the entire earring top being 6mm x 9.5mm.

Perfect for work, blue jeans or a special evening out, these gorgeous earrings will work with nearly everything in your wardrobe!

Back of each earring is clearly stamped 10K while the butterflies that were acquired with them are stamped 14K.

For pierced ears only and February's birthstone.
