Every Girl Needs a Statement Ring! {GIVEAWAY}

Do you have a statement piece of jewelry?  I will admit to having a bit of a love for statement pieces and own a few things that might fall into this category!  But, one thing I was missing was a statement ring.  Every girl needs a statement ring and today, not only am I sharing my new favorite piece, you have a chance to win one too!

Let me start off by saying that I am not a fashionista!  I don’t wear the flashy of-the-moment styles or walk around looking like I just stepped off the runway.

While I don’t wear clothes that are out of style, I tend to wear things that are casual but pulled together (think Banana Republic).  

Where I make up for my lack of trendiness is with accessories. I LOVE accessories and believe they totally make or break an outfit.  An amazing bag, a trendy pair of shoes, and a statement jewelry piece are what I use to jazz up a potentially boring outfit (not necessarily all together!).  

So, you might say I’m more of an accessorista! 

Rarely do I meet a good accessory that doesn’t make my heart beat just a little faster.  So, when I saw this gorgeous little number, my jaw dropped and I knew it needed to be on my finger pronto!

Ladies, allow me to introduce you to the Ethereal Ring by The Collegiate Standard. She’s a sterling silver pearl ring with man made diamonds on the side.  I love that she’s big, but not over-the-top flashy.  

The pearl gives her a nice classic feel, but the size of the pearl makes it a bit unexpected and a little bit edgy.   The sparkle from the diamonds on the side really gives this ring a pop!  

This is a ring that people will notice and comment on and I LOVE that!  

You know what else I love? It’s versatile!  Yes, it’s a statement piece, but you can wear it with jeans and a t-Shirt or with that little black dress and look fabulous either way!  

If you are liking my gorgeous new ring, then you are in luck!  I am partnering with The Collegiate Standard on this post and they are going to gift one Ethereal Pearl ring to ONE lucky reader!!

Just to give you a little background, The Collegiate Standard is a jewelry company that was originally created to cater to sororities and fraternities.  They have a huge selection of unique jewelry pieces for the various Greek organizations (so if you're in a Sorority, just head over there pronto and fill your cart with some of their awesome pieces!).

They have recently, however, started expanding their jewelry lines to fashion pieces for those not affiliated with a Greek organization or beyond their college years.  I love the unique pieces they have in their fashion line and have my eye on another item or two (umm...that Fleur de Lis Key Pendant is gorgeous!).  I was surprised at how reasonable their prices are, especially with the quality as high as it is!

So, if you'd like to win one of these gorgeous rings for yourself, just enter here!  The giveaway will run from 12:00am June 11 to 12:00am June 18, so be sure to get your entry in!  You won't be disappointed with this ring, I promise you!
