Sparkling Vintage Jewelry!! My best giveaway ever – $250 to Bee’s Knees Gems (Open to Canadians)

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been a little obsessed with big sparkly gem jewelry this year.  I know they’re a big trend right now, and that might be why I’ve gone bling crazy, but you have to admit, they do look great.  I spent most of the winter season searching for a perfect necklace to wear for the various holidays parties, but all my searches resulted in me leaving stores empty-handed.  While I did spot some beautiful pieces they were too expensive, and everything that was more affordable just looked cheap.  I was left a little disappointed to say the least.

More recently, I was introduced to an amazing Canadian company that specializes in beautiful vintage Gem jewelry; Bee’s Knees GemsBeeskneeslogoI probably spent a good hour perusing the web-site.  Every piece was so pretty and special.  I had a hard time deciding whether I should pick the trendy emerald-green and rose gold ring, the teardrop sapphire pendant on a rose gold chain, or the black onyx ring.  After much deliberation and some consultation with my husband (yes, he even helped), I decided to get the cushion cut pendant necklace.  I’ve been searching for something similar to this for a while now.  I also wanted something that I could wear on a daily basis but easily use to go from day wear to evening wear.necklace

I anxiously waited for my package to arrive and I couldn’t have been happier when it came.  The necklace came in a beautiful box which is great if you’re giving the jewelry as a gift.  bk packagingThe pendant itself was much bigger than I expected but just as perfect as I had imagined.  I have pretty much worn it every day since I got it; the only exception was when my family went to the Monster Jam show last Sunday (1 – I didn’t think it would be appropriate. 2 – yes you read that correctly, we took our two year old to Monster Jam 🙂 ).  True to Bee’s  Knees claim, I received a compliment on my new necklace every day!!  I already have my eyes set on the gorgeous aquamarine studs 😉

I know why I love it, but if you need some more reason’s, here’s what Bee’s Knees has to say about their beautiful jewelry:

Why you’ll love it

Beautiful. All our crystals sparkle brightly since they are genuine Swarovski or Austrian Crystals. The casing is always silver or 18K gold/platinum electroplated, making them shine beautifully on you. The two elements combine to create elegant and timeless jewelry that you’ll enjoy for years.
Durable and Sturdy. You’ll be surprised at the weight of our jewelry. Bee’s Knees pieces aren’t just little trinkets, they’re solid pieces of jewelry, due in part to the thick layer of gold and platinum that coats the casing. These pieces will last you years with the proper care.
Full 1 Year Money Back Guarantee. If you don’t love your Bee’s Knees Jewelry at any point in the first YEAR after receiving it, just send it back. 100% refund, no questions asked.
100% Hypoallergenic. All our jewelry is nickel free and won’t cause an allergic reaction or green your skin.
Inexpensive. It’s true, our pieces are not solid gold. Instead they are electroplated with gold or platinum. The means that, using the process of electrolysis, a layer of 18K gold or platinum is fused to the exterior of all the pieces. You get the weight, shine and comfort of pure gold without paying hundreds or thousands of dollars.
