A Pretty Rock Jewelry Review & Giveaway

It's no secret that I love jewelry. :) It's so much fun to find new places to feed my addiction. I was thrilled to stumble upon A Pretty Rock a while back. There are some absolutely STUNNING pieces in that shop!

If you are like me, and you really love adorning yourself with all sorts of unique, pretty baubles, then you simply MUST check out A Pretty Rock. You will find pieces to fit any budget.

I contacted the artist behind the gorgeous designs, Yazmin, and asked her if she'd be interested in hosting a giveaway for my readers. She agreed and sent me a pair of the sweetest earrings to review.


The Love Comes Full Circle earrings are made from sterling silver. There are detailed filigree hearts which are part of a circle hoop. The filigree hearts have been oxidized to bring out their delicate details. The earrings hang approximately 1 1/2” (3.81 cm) from the top of the earwire. I love wearing these earrings, and receive numerous compliments when I do. They are truly more beautiful in person than they appear in the photo.

I have already told my husband that I would love to be "surprised" with Yazmin's Turquoise and Crystal Spike Earrings (pictured above). These beauties caught my eye immediately. Rustic yet flashy enough for any special occasion, these earrings are made with aurora borealis coated czech crystals and oh so beautiful turquoise rondelles. Separating both rondelles are 3 individual twisted wire jumprings. The bali spike below the turquoise rondelle adds the finishing touch.
The earrings hang 1 5/8” (4.13 cm) from the top of the earwire. All metal is sterling silver.
Simply stunning, don't you think?

Other examples of what you will find at A Pretty Rock:
