Block Party Giveaway: The Vintage Pearl

This giveaway is now closed. Check back on July 4th for the winner!

Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win!

So let’s get started with a fabulous prize from The Vintage Pearl, a family-owned company handcrafting beautiful jewelry.

The Vintage Pearl was started by mother of four Erin Edwards. She and her husband Ryan create unique handstamped necklaces, bracelets, and keepsakes using sterling silver, freshwater pearls, and birthstone crystals. Their creations are truly amazing and beautiful.

From The Vintage Pearl website:

“The Vintage Pearl began in 2007 as a creative outlet while staying home and raising our kids. It quickly blossomed into a business and continues to grow. I feel extremely blessed to be able to work while home with my kids!”

I adore this lovely necklace I received from The Vintage Pearl–wearing it throughout my day inspires me and reminds me to have courage in the midst of the small challenges that come my way.

Today Erin is generously offering one reader a $100 gift certificate to The Vintage Pearl!

    I just subscribed to this site and am eager to glean from it. I was homeschooled myself so you would think the prospect of becoming a homeschool mom would inspire little or no trepidation…however, this is just not so! The first of my four boys (three years and under!) will begin in just over a year and I’m already laying awake at night processing this whole process! Ah well, perhaps a little early preparation along with encouragement from others( and that wisdom that God promises to readily supply) will more than get us through. Thanks for publishing something like this!

  217. I actually got jewelry for Christmas from my MIL and youngest BIL…but I don’t get new jewelry very often. Usually I get new jewelry when the old jewelry is falling apart or really tarnished (since most of it is of the costume jewelry variety)!!

  224. My husband brought me two mother of pearl bracelets from the Philippines. He was there on a business trip in April.

  228. I’m not sure when I last got a piece of new jewelry. Last year I started looking for something to commemorate my daughter’s birth but haven’t seen much I like. The pieces from The Vintage Pearl really appeal to me. Even if I don’t win something, I may have to share the page with my husband as a hint. πŸ™‚

    Oh wow! It’s been since my wedding ring that I’ve received a new piece of jewelry. Granted, I got married March of last year, but still, every girl likes pretty jewelry πŸ™‚

  230. Love this! I last received a piece of jewelry around Mother’s Day this year …

  231. ermmmm….I won a necklace at the school silent auction, but I’m not sure that counts since I paid for it! I’d say definitely pre-kid, so it’s been a good 5 years!

  247. About 1 years I’d say.

  248. The fact that I had to think hard about when I last received jewelry means it has been too long! I think last Christmas when my husband gave me a lovely necklace made of sea glass.

  249. We’re lucky enough to have a fantastic jewlery designer in town that is loved by the celebrity magazines, but also has a “bargain” bin where us locals can pop in and buy un-sold stuff for dirt cheap prices. That’s my “go to” spot for buying gifts these days, and I hinted enough to get my husband there for Mothers’ Day. =) However, I can’t afford the really beautiful things and this Vintage Pearl collection is divine!

  253. Ooooooh how I love the Vintage Pearl! I can’t complain about how long it has been since I received a little bling bling since my dear husband purchased me some lovely marcasite earrings only a month ago. But our tastes do slightly differ and while it’s the thought that counts… I would l-o-v-e a necklace with our family’s names on it. The style of their jewelry is so “me.” Elegant, but simple, & unexpected.

  268. I rec’d a lovely beaded necklace from my 4yo for moms day, but real jewelry… a very funky, local necklace for my bday last year. It has the tiniest little map & says our neighborhood in Seattle, under a glass pendant. My hubby found it at an eclectic store nearby.

    I always look at jewelry and admire it, but then your mind goes to all the other things that your house, or car, or kids need. And I’d much rather receive it as a gift than get it for myself. It has sentiment when you get jewelry from someone who loves you.

  273. What great jewelry, I would love to win! I actually received a beautiful ring from the Sundance catalog for my birthday, but it was something I specifically asked for. Prior to that, I had not received any new jewelry for years!

I grew up in the Mennonite church, and though I am no longer ‘Mennonite’ I still appreciate the simplicity that not focusing on ‘outward adornment’ can bring.

We missed our flight to get on our cruise, and ended up staying with my husband’s grandma’s cousin overnight. We got in very late, and then had to wait in a long line to fill out paperwork for our luggage the airline had lost. By around midnight, we were finally ready to leave and our dear host and hostess took us to their home. The next day, they had to prepare to a party they were throwing, but took the time to cook us a huge lunch and then to the mall to get some more clothes. At some point, our host gave me a very large fake diamond ring.
    It was so kind of him, and nice to have something that was okay to lose, while we were gallivanting about the Caribbean!

  416. I recieved a beautiful bracelet from my husband this past Christmas.

  417. Wow! These are beautiful! I actually received a lovely pink plastic ring on Sunday from my three year old prince. He told me, he got it just for me and was slightly disappointed that it only fits on my pinkie instead of my ring finger (as he is in the marrying mama someday phase right now). I love it but it would be lovely to get a piece of jewlery this stunning and adult friendly : ) Thanks for the chance.

    Blessings,
    Amy
