Who doesn’t love jewelry? If you’re not familiar with Stella & Dot jewelry, believe me, it’s just beautiful.
This post is chock full of good information. I’m going to tell you a little bit about Stella & Dot in general, a few of the pieces I like, how you can become a stylist, their efforts to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and lastly, give you details regarding how you can win the gorgeous Rose Quartz Earrings in this photo!
Stella & Dot has been featured in numerous publications such at In Style, Lucky, and the New York Times. Celebrities like Debra Messing, Penelope Cruz, The Bachelorette and more have also been seen wearing their stunning pieces. You too can been seen wearing Stella & Dot! They have a wide variety of styles that fit different occasions, budgets and tastes. There are even quite a few pieces under $50. Fans rave about the quality, which is very important to me at any price. I would describe their look as contemporary with a hint of vintage.
I have pretty simple tastes so this Adele Cuff in Silver is right up my alley. In fact, the day after I first saw it, I wore a black shift dress to a wedding, looked down at my wrist and was very sad that I didn’t already own this bracelet. It would have been perfect. I think I’m going to buy it. Except that there are so many other pieces that I like – it’s tough to choose just one item, or even two.
I love the Artemis Stone Necklace in the left photo. It has jade (one of my favorites), lemon and smoky quartz along with chrsophase. This would be a perfect accent to a simple dress and I love that natural stones are used and that they are not dyed.
If fashion is your passion, you can become a Stella & Dot stylist. Your first step to earning what you’re worth is to watch this short video. Over half of Stella & Dot stylists have another part time or full time job, in addition to kids – the flexibility of the job makes it very doable. This video is also a great way to see the jewelry in action, as the participants are wearing it.
Other than possibly going to the gym, jewelry can be worn on every occasion. If you need help tastefully accessorizing, a Stella & Dot stylist is happy to advise you. Their website is also a great resource. Be on the look out for the holiday collection. It’s coming soon. Speaking of the holidays, wouldn’t Stella & Dot make a great gift?
Breast Cancer Awareness Month: For the month of October, Stella & Dot is graciously donating 20% of net sales of items in their Pink Boutique to Breast Cancer Research. The Pink Boutique is full of gorgeous items but you’ve only got until October 31 for this donation to apply. In celebration of this offer, Stella and Dot stylist Robin Allegro is giving away one pair of Rose Quartz Earrings to one lucky La Jolla Mom reader! These earrings are shown at the top of this post and are sterling silver, 1.5″ long. I personally love rose quartz. The meaning of rose quartz is “love” and it is thought to provide healing to the wearer. I can’t think of a better stone to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
