Chance to win a Diamond Necklace!

When I was growing up, I didn't really have much interest in jewelry. Yeah, I thought that certain jewelry were prettier than another but that's about it, as far as my interest went. As I grew older, I began to realize that not only are jewelry beautiful to look at, but they also sometimes play a significant part in special moments in our lives. As I look through my (somewhat growing) jewelry collection, memories of special moments flash through my mind. The necklace with an aquamarine pendant that my then boyfriend, now husband, gave me on our first anniversary together, the diamond engagement ring that he gave me when he proposed, the pearl necklace my mom gave me a few days before my wedding day as well as the gold necklace that my parents gave me during the our traditional chinese wedding tea ceremony. My most treasured piece of jewelry is a gold necklace with a cross given to me by my late grandmother. It used to belong to her and she gave it to me a while back before she passed away. Yes, it might look old and a little bit dated but it's my favourite because it reminds me of her.

With my new growing interest in jewelry, I found a website that is a great jewelry resource for information on fine jewelry. The Jewelry Information Center is a non profit organization that provides consumers with information about fine jewelry, comprehensive shopping tips, jewelry care and cleaning information, jewelry history as well as various fashion trends through its work with print, broadcast and now, the Internet. I just love browsing around that website, as there is just so much to learn! With Mother's Day just around the corner, it would be a great place to search for that special piece of jewelry to show Mom how much you love her!

One of my favorite sections of the website is the Jewelry Stories section. This is where you can share about why certain pieces of jewelry is so special to you. I really love and enjoy reading jewelry stories of others and I am going to post my very own story there too! Also, JIC is hosting a sweepstakes and you will be entered to win a 14K White Gold 1.5 Carat Diamond Kay Jewelers Necklace when you submit your jewelry story!! Isn't that great? Go ahead and check out the Jewelry Information Center website and don't forget to submit your jewelry stories! Now, will you please excuse me, I have some jewelry stories to write ;)
