Spring Jewelry 2014 and A Majestical Giveaway

Jewelry will always be one of those wild favorite things for me. I like a nice statement necklace. But I like my gold too. And anything vintage – sign me up! I brought a couple of my Grandma’s pieces from Russia and I cherish them more than anything else in the world. And as some of you know my wedding bands are 1960’s vintage square rings. Do you have a special piece of jewelry that you treasure?

Spring is all about necklaces for me, and I will be honest, it’s almost always about necklaces for me. I found some amazing pieces to share with you today, that scream spring 2014 to me!

Leave Nothing to Chance – Blue Nile Holiday GIVEAWAY!


Disclosure: This is a PR post for Blue Nile. Some of the images have been provided by the company. They also sponsored the Giveaway! But as always all opinions are my own, including the ones I have on Blue Nile jewelry.

Leave Nothing to chance is not only a great saying (esp. for control freaks like me), but a great app that has recently been launched by Blue Nile. It’s a fun holiday game, that doesn’t only help you pick out a gift for yourself, or a friend, but also adds little fun comments and creates your personality profile. And since I’ve been a sucker for filling out personality tests since I was a teenager (seriously, that was one of my favorite pass times), I decided to give this one a go. Besides, it was going to show some amazing jewelry suggestions in the end! All that can be shared on social media. That way, your friends and family can select the perfect gift – no more guessing! It’s a lot of fun to play, and eliminates the need for those often missed subtle hints.

Want to see what I got?

After questions like:

I loved the way the app is so holiday inspired, it puts you in a great mood right away! And when you see the final results it just makes you go Awww! Now I don’t personally agree with the jewelry choices the app made for me, but I do love my Blue Nile Leaf earrings and arrow necklace!

So if you decide to go through with the questionnaire, let me know how accurate it was for you, and whether or not you like the jewelry suggestions it made! The best news is, if you participate and do the app questionnaire, you will also be entered to win a three carat diamond tennis bracelet on the website!

Now a Blue Nile giveaway is great, but a Being Zhenya one is awesome too! So I am giving away $50 to Blue Nile and you have a little over a week to enter!
