GBANEYX DESIGN- Jewelry Review and Giveaway

CONGRATULATIONS #12, Nissa. You are the winner of this giveaway according to Random.org!

**Thank you for entering. This giveaway is now closed. A random winner will be chosen and announced on Tuesday, December 2.**

I am thrilled to be able to introduce you to an amazing Etsy store, GBaneyx Design. The owner of the shop, Gretchen, creates unique and beautiful earrings, necklaces and bracelets.



When I first saw all of the exquisite pieces available from GBaneyx Design, I was mesmerized by the sterling silver, gorgeous gemstones, and intricate designs. Upon closer inspection, I realized that her prices were affordable, something that is a major plus for me! My only problem was that I had a difficult time choosing only ONE piece of jewelry. I finally settled on the Blue Moon Necklace.


Once it arrived, I was stunned by how much more beautiful the necklace was in person! Truly, it exceeded my expectations. The small drop of light aqua chalcedony is a perfect addition to the hammered silver circle. I also love that the 1” extender is finished with an iridescent drop of rainbow moonstone, such a pretty little detail. I immediately tried it on and was impressed that the chain felt smooth on my neck and didn’t get stuck in my hair, like a lot of chains do. The quality and craftsmanship of my necklace is more than impressive.

A piece of jewelry from GBaneyx Design would make the perfect gift- for a friend, sister, mother, wife, girlfriend, or yourself. With all of the beautiful choices Gretchen offers, you are sure to find something you have to have!

BUY IT:
GBaneyx Design will be participating a promotion for the Thanksgiving weekend around two infamous shopping days: Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Nov. 28th through Dec. 1st). Gretchen will be will be offering 20% off on all of her jewelry for the event.

The Mystic Green River Pendant Necklace is beautiful! I would love to give one to my aunt. It would look great on her, with her hair and eyes, and I would love to surprise her and make her smile! She's always so thoughtful and generous.

Miss Jocelyn said...

Looks like a great giveaway! :) I'll have to let my sister know! She'd love to enter.

Thanks for linking yourself on the Weekly. You didn't put the direct link in to the post though, but I switched for you. Make sure you do that next time so people came find the giveaway immediately!

getpalmd said...

It's the Blue Moon Necklace. Honestly, if I could buy anything from her shop, it would be this. And I'm selfish as well, but I'd take it for myself.. unless some family member loved it, then I could give it as a present, but I wouldn't mind keeping it myself, it's stunning! :-)

The blue ocean earrings are a perfect gift for my cousin (who's like a sister to me) who just had a sweet baby girl. Those earrings are the color of her baby's eyes...and it'd be a nice treat for the new mom!

fae said...

i love the On a Moonlit Night Pendant Necklace! very unique looking!

Kristan said...

Wow, that whole Etsy store is fabulous, but I absolutely adore the red and black garnet post earrings. Thanks for the opportunity!

(Here via Prizey.net, fyi.)

Kristan said...

OOPS! And I forgot to say... hmm, okay, so I was thinking for myself. If I'm thinking for someone else, I'd say Blue Moon Pendant for my best friend Angie. She's very stylish and would totally rock that. (You can discount my previous entry and use this one, please!)

bocktalk said...

I love the Temptest bracelet for my aunt, it is very pretty!

It's a hard decision but I'll go with the Ciottoli di Miele Bracelet as my favorite. I'd love to win it for myself, because why can't I keep such a gorgeous piece just for me?

Thanks!
