Regina Pierallini Giveaway

Spring is now in full swing! With the amazing cherry blossoms that are covering the trees and the bright sunshine how can anyone not be happy! And I love spring because it means that it is time to bring out all the amazing spring and summer clothes that have been locked away in my closet and getting rid of all the big bulky coats. And with spring clothes comes the need for bright new accessories!Regina Pierallini is an amazing jewelry designer that is based out of New York and she has some of the most exquisite and lovely jewlery that I have seen!
Regina first started out in 2002 when Regina was rocking out in a pair of handcrafted earrings that caught the eye of a buyer for the Paul Labreqcue Spa noticed them requested she design a line for the exclusive salon in the same style. This first line quickly sold out and was followed up with a second and third series for the spa’s high profile location inside the Reebok Club. The following year, prompted by a stream of orders, Regina started selling her designs in earnest, establishing a studio and showing her work in a number of boutiques and jewelry stores

Her jewelry is focused on being able to bring an affordable option to the pieces of jewelry that you see gracing your favourite celebrities!

One of the most popular pieces in her shop is the sideways cross necklace that has been spotted on Kelly Rippa. Regina Pierallini offers this necklace in the classic gold and silver but she also offers it in a beautiful rose gold version as well! Rose gold is so hot at the moment! If you want a little bling also check out her CZ version as well!

Using only the finest quality semi-precious stones such as chalcedony, citrine, peridot, opal, agate and tourmaline I love how she showcases each gems unique property and colours as well as the bold ways in which she mixes them up!

A wide variety of metals are used; 14kt gold, sterling silver, as well as antiqued brass and copper are employed to achieve a desired look and feel

You can also check Regina out on her LightMetals Artfire Shop!

My Review:

I was sent two amazing Regina Pierallini pieces to review and I was so excited when I recieved her lovely wrapped pieces in the mail!

I love how each piece was wrapped carefully in a gift box and then wrapped in pink tissue paper finished off with a classic seal! Really love when companies go the extra mile and make a great presentation!

The first piece that I was sent was from Regina's amazing Clover Line! I was sent the beautiful Turquoise Enamel Clover Necklace

This amazing necklace features 12 enamel clovers and is accented with three large open worked flowers. The necklace measure 36-39 inches and I love how it is adjustable so you can easily determine what length best suits you! I love that you can wear this multiple different ways as well! I have worn it as is, doubled up and wrapped around my wrist for the ultimate arm party!

Another great thing is that it enamaled on both sides so you never have to worry about adjusting it!

I have recieved so many compliments on this necklace everytime I have worn it out! A definete classic to have in your jewelry wardrobe!

The second item that was sent to me was the Long Multi-Disk Layered Necklace

This necklace was inspired by the one that Courtney Cox wears in Cougar Town! This lovely necklace is long and effortless and features floating gold disks in mulitple sizes.

It can be worn long and cascading or double it into a double stranded piece that is versatile. It measures 38 inches in total length with an additional 2 inches of extension chain! This necklace is plated in 14k gold.

Look at how amazing these necklaces look when they are layered together! Definitely a great showstopper!
