CLOSED - Free Jewelry Giveaway - 100th Follower Celebration Continues

Genuine White Opal and Alexandrite Ring by York Avenue Studio
I'm so excited that my blog has so many followers and I'm about to break the 100 mark!  In anticipation of reaching that milestone, I've offered a 50% discount on my Fine Silver Feather Earrings!  That blog post can be found by clicking here.

To continue the fun, I am also holding a Free Jewelry Giveaway for my Genuine White Opal and Alexandrite Ring!  One lucky winner of my Giveaway will receive this ring absolutely free!

Genuine White Opal and Alexandrite Ring by York Avenue Studio
Rare genuine Alexandrite gemstone accents make this a truly unique Opal ring, not something you will find everywhere. The Alexandrite gems are color changing from green to red when worn in different types of light. The Genuine White Opal has beautiful rainbow flashes of color, which also appear differently with natural light compared to other light sources.

The sterling silver setting has tiny swirls on each side of the main gem that wrap around the accent gems, very nice detail.  Size 7.  Any local jeweler can resize this ring if needed.

The genuine White Opal is 7x5mm, .45ct. Opal is the birthstone for October
The Alexandrite gems are just under 2mm round each and have blue-green color, changing to purple-red. Alexandrite is also a birthstone for June, along with pearl.

  42. I think you have a jewlery style that can be called delicate yet strong--for your pieces are beautiful and look so breakable yet the way they emanate true design makes them so strong. The style is contradictory of itself and utterly wonderful :)

  57. My style of jewelry is quite conservative.

    I like contemporary pieces that stand the test of time.

    I prefer to have gemstones in addition to sterling silver or gold as opposed to just having diamonds or pearls by themselves.

    I like unique pieces and will usually try and find pieces that are one of a kind.

    Thanks for offering this great giveaway. ~Pauline
