Today I am pinching myself as I write this post. Actually the pinching began back in the fall,when I was contacted by Cara at Anjolee, high end diamond jewelry manufacturer and ecommerce retailer, through the sweetest email asking if I would be interested in collaborating with Anjolee (pinch me, am I dreaming?).
Uh, let me think about it…YES!
YES, YES, YES!
Cara offered to send me a piece of their beautiful jewelry to review.
She explained that Anjolee only sells diamond and gemstone jewelry but for the purposes of review, they would create a brand new sample in silver with high quality CZ’s. Cara provided me with several necklace styles for me to choose from for my review piece (the pinching continued). She added that if I selected a jewelry style that features a gemstone I would have the choice of using the gemstones instead of CZ’s (insert pinch). The gemstone options included topaz, citrine, garnet, or amethyst (oh. my. gravy.)!
I was invited to choose a diamond tennis necklace from three styles.
The first option was the Day to Night Diamond Drop Pendant.
A princess cut center diamond surrounded by 50, count ’em, FIVE-ZERO, diamonds in a bail drop pendant design. I would love to have you all think that I know that much about jewelry to come up with that description on my own but I don’t. I borrowed from Anjolee’s description. I just know this is beautiful.
My second option was the Be Mine Diamond Solitaire Pendant.
The focus is on the single, beautiful stone, available in four sizes ranging from a quarter to a full carat diamond.
(By now, my forearm is turning black and blue.)
But the piece I chose to review is the Lucky Four Diamond Tennis Necklace Pendant.
I am of Irish ancestry and the design of this piece reminds me of four-leaf-clovers and Celtic knots. On their webpage, Anjolee suggests that wearing this shimmering pendant will make one feel lucky. Ask my Prince Charming (Paul Clingan), I need all the luck I can get. I have had some the darnedest things happen to me but having met him, it seems my luck has taken a definite upturn! And now having the incredible good fortune of wearing this lovely necklace, I am sure 2016 holds wonderful things in store.
The necklace arrived in time for me to put the package under the tree for Christmas.
I think my hands were shaking when I opened the box.
This pendant is breath-taking.
SO SPARKLY that it was hard to focus my camera with the sunlight bouncing off the stones. What a terrible problem to have, huh? And the reflection of the light on the jewels was giving my Purrsimmony fits. She was hopping all over the room chasing the rainbows cast by my Lucky Four diamond tennis necklace.
Purrsimmony inspecting the source of all of that heart-stopping brilliance.
See what I mean?
And although it is decidedly fancier than the costume jewelry I generally wear day-to-day for school or dates with PC, I think the clover or flower petal design make this piece fun.
Perfect for wearing here around the castle or out to a gala ball with my Prince.
Now that my forearm is completely but pleasantly bruised from all of the pinching over my recent good fortune, let me suggest that you stop by Anjolee to select a little sparkle for your life. Or better yet, introduce your very own Prince Charming to Anjolee, just in time for Valentine’s Day. You know, leave the webpage open on your laptop or iPad. Send him the URL link to their site.
HEY, I know…leave this blog post out where he can access it easily.
All he has to do is click here to pick out a diamond tennis necklace for you!
And grab his wallet.

Thank you, Cara and the great craftsmen at Anjolee for creating such beautiful jewelry that can make everyone woman feel like a princess.
Off to have my annual mammogram but wearing my necklace makes even that feel like an event.
