Celebrating 150k Followers on Instagram with a Giveaway!

Gem Gossip Giveaway

With every milestone comes a round of gratefulness, mixed with some disbelief. We are celebrating yet another milestone with Gem Gossip--hitting 150k followers over on Instagram! We are so thankful to each and every person who makes my feed a part of your day. 150,000 people is a lot of humans--it can seem overwhelming at first, but what is most important within that number are the individuals I've been able to connect with over the past few years. Whether it was helping with jewelry advice, or asking me to source a special piece for a special milestone, or just those who have continually messaged me with kind words--I will be forever connected and thankful!

As a way of saying thanks, I've teamed up with Celia Brown Jewelry--a brand I admire and think is doing something extraordinary right now with her unique designs.  We are offering a giveaway, one ring from the following three choices shown in the above photo.

Which would you pick if you are chosen the winner?! And how would you stack it with your current jewelry?

If you're as excited as I am for this giveaway, I'll get right to the rules on how to enter:

1. Follow @gemgossip & @celiabrownjewelry on Instagram

2. Tag at least THREE friends you think should enter! Good luck!!

Here's the official entry post!

You have exactly ONE WEEK to enter, winner will be announced on March 20th at 6pm CST. Be sure to follow ALL steps, if your account is set to private, I won't be able to see if you've followed step one!

Gem Gossip Turns EIGHT Years Old!

#gemgossipturns8

I don't know how this happened, but Gem Gossip celebrates another year in July! Turning 8 years old is a huge milestone--the number 8 is crazy significant in my life and I hope this will be the best year yet! I'm so thankful for all that has come out of creating Gem Gossip and I still vividly remember writing my first blog post like it was yesterday. My taste has grown, my knowledge has grown, my friends and acquaintances have grown...so much positive has come out of this blog; more than I could have ever expected.

As a way of saying thanks, I'm hosting EIGHT, yes EIGHT, giveaways all month long. I can't wait for you all to see the prizes that could be yours--I've spent a long time putting the perfect items together, with personal favorites amongst them. 

I also like to ask YOU as a reader, follower, fan...what do you want to see more of?  See less of? Please leave some feedback because I like to listen. After all, you are most important in this equation!  So let me know--you can tweet me, email me, or comment in the comment section!

Thanks everyone and cheers to turning 8!

Gem Gossip Visits The Eden Collective in Philadelphia, PA

I've been such a fan of The Eden Collective since she first launched her Etsy shop back in 2013 which she started as a hobby.  Not even two years later, her five-year plan has now turned into a budding business and she is transitioning to making antique jewelry her full-time gig!  And it is not a bad gig, considering it is her passion and she has been surrounded by antiques her whole life--it is only fitting!  Her taste in all things old and vintage is impeccable--every piece in her inventory is incredibly covetable and her natural knack for curating great pieces is perfect for her fans and followers who can't wait to see what she finds next. I am right there with them!  Whether it is a trip to Brimfield or a day spent bidding at auction, antique jewelry collectors are left clamouring at what she will bring to her online shop. 

I couldn't have been more excited to meet my virtual antique-loving friend and get the opportunity to see her inventory in person. Lining Philadelphia’s straight, gridiron streets, an iconic row house was the setting for our meetup. Built during the early 1900s and fully decorated and restored with treasures Eden has picked up throughout her life.  I was greeted by her adorable dog Darla and a few of her cats strolled in from time-to-time. She had several trays full of rings, which immediately had my attention!  One tray with all conversion pieces, one tray with engagement rings and alternative engagement options, and another tray with a wide variety of all-original antique pieces--like signets, large onyx rings, gemstone rings, REGARD rings, portrait rings, intaglios and lots of gorgeous agate pieces.  I surely was in heaven!  I got to try on some of her pieces and style a few different looks.  

Eden is excited about her bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces that are a part of her limited edition, original designs based on the pieces she has gathered over the years. Some great examples are her bug midi-rings and her Amor ring, which is cast in recycled 10k yellow gold with a warm rose tint, after a vintage ring found in Merida in the Yucatan Penninsula!  More pieces are being added to the collection.  She specializes in alternative engagement rings, not to mention customer service, with emphasis placed on the idea of repurposing and rediscovering the value of things once loved, giving them new purpose and new appeal.

The Eden Collective recently reached a milestone on Instagram, gaining 5k followers and is hosting a really great giveaway to celebrate. Up for grabs is a 10k gold Amor ring from Eden's original designs collection.  All you have to do to be entered is follow @theedencollective on Instagram, find the Giveaway photo and repost it, hashtag your entry #amor5000 and tag 3 friends!  The contest ends at the end of this month!
