I was recently invited to attend an event called Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend. As soon as I saw the title show up in my facebook events I was intrigued! The event was hosted by a new local jewelry store, Tena's, and it benefited the Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support. The Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support is an amazing service in the Athens area that offers support in the form of classes, counseling, workshops, etc... for cancer patients and those caring for loved ones with cancer.
I convinced my friend, Katie, to go with me to this event, and we had a fabulous time. We enjoyed yummy refreshments, they cleaned our jewelry, and they let us try on as many pieces of jewelry as we wanted. We were even entered into a drawing to win a diamond pendant (we didn't win, but the anticipation of winning was still fun). As we left the event, they gave us free jewelry cleaner and a cute tin of custom M&Ms. We enjoyed all of this for a $5 donation! I never knew $5 could be so much!
My favorite part of the evening, other than spending quality time with my precious friend and supporting a great cause, was trying on the jewelry! Katie and I enjoyed trying on a variety of jewelry pieces, but for some reason we kept going back to the diamonds. :) We loved trying on the diamond rings! We even added a few rings to our wish list!
One of my favorite pieces all night had to be the stackable rings! I have never been a fan of stackable bands, but these were different! These rings were unique, fun, and reasonably priced! They are definitely at the top of my wish list!
Here are a few of my favorites!
I couldn't find individual pictures of the 3 rings that I stacked the other night and fell in love with, but the pictures above give you a pretty good idea of just how beautiful the stacked rings can be!
