Giveaway: Brazilets Wish Bracelet

lcc

We are giving away a Brazilet Wish Bracelet this week in honor of giving back, and helping to protect the Amazon in Brazil! Sales of Brazilets help preserve the Amazon and have been on the rise in popularity. Although these bracelets have been around for 200 years in Brazil, they have only recently been a hit here in the United States. Celebrities like Lauren Conrad and magazines like US Weekly & Star have promoted these bracelets.

Brazilets are worn fashionably throughout Latin America yet retain spiritual significance as they help grant wishes to all who wear them. Brazilets are worn by wrapping the wrist and tying three knots for three wishes; when the material wears down and the Brazilets fall off naturally, it is believed that the three wishes will come true.

In order to qualify to win, leave a comment which includes your email address and answer this question: What is your most coveted piece of jewelry you own? You can double your chances by doing the same on Twitter! Good luck, winner will be announced in a week!

April showers brought May flowers

Just a little spring time inspiration. The Nashville area has been anything but springlike. Oh well...

Beautiful 1920s platinum and diamond ring. The flower motif is elegant and done in a non-trendy way. The total carat weight is 1.2 carats! From Israel Rose and priced at $1650.

DSCN76044



18 carats of aquamarine! From the 1950s done in 18k yellow gold, I can't imagine how eye-catching this bracelet would look like on. The mesh-iness of the entire piece makes it that much more unique. From Israel Rose, priced at $3500.

Heidi Montag's Wedding Jewels

heidi


Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt tied the knot, for real this time, this past weekend. Heidi's jewelry for the big day was bold and glamorous. She is seen here with her bridal jewels, which are Neil Lane and worth over $1 million! Her bracelets are amazing. Below are some great choices from Lang Antiques, all may be well over your wedding budget, but it is always fun to dream!

This bracelet is sleek, with a bold center diamond--almost 2 carats! Crafted during the Edwardian Era, it is rightfully done in platinum and totals 4 carats of diamonds. Price: $19,500

This one has the open links, similar to Heidi's. It is a French Art Deco piece, all done in platinum. The total diamond weight here is 8 carats, with a price of $17,500

sapphire


Although Heidi wore a white-on-white look with her jewelry, adding a small pop of color, especially sapphires, is always pretty. I like this bracelet circa 1915, all set in platinum with bezel set diamond and sapphires. A total of 12 carats worth of diamonds in this bracelet! The price surely reflects that, $36000.

All bracelets can be purchased at Lang Antiques, photo of Heidi courtesy of Pop Sugar.

Gem Gossip is excited to release a headband available for purchase!  Thank you loyal fans, readers and jewelry connoisseurs around the world for reading Gem Gossip.  The charity bracelet has been doing well, and I wanted to design one more item.  Had to do a headband since I haven't been able to find one that I really like in stores, for a reasonable price.

Check out the Gem Gossip Head Band below and place your orders by sending an email inquiry to charitybracelet@gmail.com  or twitter me HERE.  Each headband is $15 plus S&H.  If you would like a 14k yellow gold bead added to your headband, add $50.
