Gorgeous Coral Necklace ... for YOU?


It's so preeeeety. But it's got gold hardware so I just KNOW I won't wear it. Will you?

Just leave a comment on this post by midnight CST on Monday, June 22 and I'll draw a lucky winner at random. International readers, go for it! I'll ship it slowly but happily to you, should you win.

Cygnet said...

The necklace is beautiful.
I love your blog but I never comment... I just feel like you've pretty much said it all, most of the time. :) I love how you are all about self-acceptance, yet don't go to the extreme of deciding no one needs to make an effort to look good.

Erica said...

That is a beautiful necklace! Thanks for the post:)

Christine said...

I love the necklace. Coral & gold are two of *my* colors.

I also love your blog. I recommend it to people all the time.

Barb said...

I'm not a gold girl either, but with all that pretty red coral, who cares. Is it bad that I immediately thought of red coral a great accessory for my black & red Fluevogs? (not for the rather more important clothing :-)

vintage_mck said...

Ohh the love of a necklace that would be marvelous for summer! I am already imagining how this would make some of my outfits speak!!!

Maggie said...

How very pretty. Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

The Seeker said...

Oh Sal what a great necklace. I love it!!!!!! I'm a necklace woman and I haven't any like that with that colour. Thank you that international readers can also be in.
I hope the Universe will help me :)

Drool. I could use a red necklace!

The necklace is beautiful!

Rachel said...

I want! Actually, I really truly NEED more necklaces. :)

Jennifer said...

What a gorgeous necklace! It would be a great statement piece with an otherwise tame outfit.

Karen MD said...

Beautiful; love the necklace. Can you share its provenance?

Kate said...

Gorgeous! Where did you find such a gem?

I used to be like you - no gold - but I'm slowly changing my style tune (although silver still always wins out if there's a choice). However, I won't try too hard to bring you over to the gold side - you might decide to keep the necklace!

Andrea said...

Ooh, I loves it!

Barb said...

Loves it! I totally need something like this...

Cortney said...

It's absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

Tina said...

It's a beautiful necklace and it's a shame that it doesn't work for you. But it's very generous of you to share! I hope that we get to see pics of it in use from whomever the lucky winner is.

Syl said...

Lovely colors-- I was just thinking about picking up some red jasper to make something for fall.

Marie Lemondrop said...

It is a bold a beautiful one, I would love to show it off with a simple blouse or dress...count me in please

Anonymous said...

The necklace is beautiful and your daily blogs are phenomenal. I religiously read them everyday!

Sister said...

I love it! I've never won anything in the lottery so I hope I'm due. ;-)

Chris said...

Been searching for a coral necklace for a zillion years practically. Hard to find one I like! Even if I don't win, I love your blog. A place to laugh, learn and occasionally, cry. Good stuff.

annahell said...

crimson neck bangle,
generously offered, she,
for trade, bad haiku?

Alice T. said...

What a nice necklace! How did you get it?

Veronica said...

Gorgeous!

My mother has a scar on her neck from a thyroid operation, and is always looking for something to cover it, so I'm on the lookout for a necklace that looks like it'll do the job.

Rikki said...

This is such a beautiful necklace! I am not quite yet there "fashionably", but I could just see with my mind's eye how it would make everything and me so much prettier!

L said...

oh wow! what a powerful necklace! i love it!

Lizzie said...

That's gorgeous! And it's versatile enough to wear with a sarong and flip flops as well as a crisp blue shirtdress.

Aimee C said...

Such a lovely piece!

Middle Aged Woman said...

Oh my gosh. I wish you didn't have so many readers sometimes!

mol said...

Gorgeous!

jani said...

I think that's a lovely coral necklace, and my birthday's coming up, and I'm trying not to spend money, so I'd absolutely Love It!

Jess said...

It's so pretty! You really wouldn't wear it? How nice of you to give it away then!

Liz said...

Wow, that is totally gorgeous. The color's amazing!

sara jane said...

OOH! Pretty! Delurking to say thanks for the fabulous blog!

Brande said...

Tres pretty! Even if I don't win it, I'd like you to know, Sal, that you're about 80% of the reason that I no longer wear t-shirts and jeans 7-days a week, and the reason I'm even interested in a necklace this unique and eye-catching. Thank you for waking up my inner fashionista!

rb said...

What a pretty necklace. What kind of neckline would you wear it with?

Anonymous said...

If this necklace you will give
To me, I certainly will live
In gratitude towards lovely Sal
I'd count you as a dearest pal!

What a beautiful necklace! Thanks for the chance to win.

Anonymous said...

You must pick me (I know, it's random, but still). This would be a gorgeous addition to my necklace collection! Thank you!!

Elizabeth Billman said...

Wow! It's hard to believe you haven't been wearing this all the time. What about getting some little 14k gold ear hoops and rocking this necklace with a turquoise or black top? If you won't, I would love to!!! I love red coral.

From about.com: Red Coral is good for helping to "tame" the wildness within. Such as tempers, rages, compulsive disorders. Helps to balance us to the spiritual. A good stimulant for the root chakra. Protects one from depression and despondency.

A good stone to strengthen the bone structure. Does well with mending broken bones. It carries the sun's energy, and does very well with the turquoise. They each carry the energy of moon and sun.

Rachel said...

What a beautiful statement necklace. Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

April said...

The shiny... I would love it and treasure it and wear it often.

MissAmy said...

No! Freakin'! Way!

camille0528 said...

I'll wear it...with a coral summer dress, and with white, and with denim, and with a slim suit for work, and with capris, and with ivory slacks, and with summery platforms, and with a tunic, and with jeans, and always with a smile!

Red said...

So pretty!

Wishful thoughts said...

Picture this with a classic white dress shirt, a slim denim or dark navy skirt and fantastic platforms. Very pretty!

Suz said...

How gorgeous. I wear fuschia framed glasses and I love to clash them with my outfits on purpose, especially with red. This would do the trick!

cciele said...

Beautiful! Sorry it doesn't have a place with all your other necklaces, but I'm sure it will find a good home amongst your loyal readers :)

Jenn said...

Wow - that is one gorgeous piece of jewelry.

Do you only wear silver toned jewerly? I go back and forth, being olive skinned and looking better in silver but loving some gold pieces I have.

RMarie said...

This necklace is beautiful! I've been looking for a red one for ages :) Great item for a contest!

Spandexpony said...

Why, yes, I do really like this necklace! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

hollarback said...

Me want, pretty!

I like it, which is so odd because it's red. I have so little red in...well, anything in my wardrobe.

Your headline reminds me of Tina Fey's "I want to go to there" on 30 Rock (she credits her daughter with the phrase :)

Count me in!

That necklace is awesome! I have such bad taste in picking statement accessories out and winning this would be so awesome since I know it comes from someone with great taste. Happy Friday!

Kat Gregory said...

What a generous act giving away this piece. Yes, a stunning necklace. Exactly what is missing from my wardrobe.

Mimi the kitten said...

Sal, this is so exciting! And, I would give it to my Mom (who designs and creates oodles of amazing jewelry for her only daughter...that would be me!) as a surprise. Thanks for the chance, and for all of your inspiring, encouraging, and FUN musings. God bless you!

Oops, ok the "anonymous" above, my name is Beth. Or giant goofball, if you prefer. I answer to either.

Amy Hawkins said...

A necklace like this would be a fashion push/risk for me, but one I would like to take and adapt to. The red is pretty and would make so much of the black and brown that are in my wardrobe much less boring.
