Holiday 2010 Giveaway: Twilight-Inspired Fire and Ice Necklace [CLOSED]

I am a huge fan of artisan jewelry and am always proud to wear a special piece that shows off a jewelry crafter's imagination and skill. I wore this Twilight-inspired Fire and Ice Necklace from Bella Bejeweled to go out to dinner to celebrate my husband's and my 10th wedding anniversary. I only had it on for a few hours and received several compliments about it, including ones from our preschool-aged daughter and our server at the restaurant.

Bella Bejeweled offers handcrafted rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets in sterling silver and other metals. The jewelry is artistic and unique, especially the Twilight-inspired jewelry collection. You may also be interested to know that Bella Bejeweled also offers one of a kind jewelry pieces, as well as custom orders. If you are planning on giving jewelry this holiday, keep in mind that knowing yours is the only piece of jewelry of its kind adds quite a bit of value to a gift and makes it that much more special.


My sterling silver Fire and Ice Swarovski Crystal necklace came in a ribbon-tied pouch that was wrapped and ready-to-give. This is perfect for anyone who needs to ship a gift directly to the recipient.


I am not a fan of high-glitz jewelry (unless a special occasion calls for it). I actually asked for a smaller diamond solitaire for my engagement ring. In my opinion, Swarovski crystals catch light beautifully and offer a subtle brilliance. I love my Fire and Ice necklace and think that it will be the perfect necklace to wear to any Christmas celebrations I will be attending this year. Considering that red is my favorite color, I suspect I will be wearing this necklace all year round.


This 17" necklace can be created in a custom length. In silver-plated, the Fire and Ice necklace retails for $34.99 and for $44.99 in sterling silver. Visit BellaBejeweledShop.com and Bella Bejeweled on Facebook to view the entire selection of artisan jewelry.


Thank you to Bella Bejeweled for providing us with a complimentary sample necklace to base this review upon and for providing an additional product for our contest prize.
