Giveaway | Win a Pair of .5 Carat Moissanite Stud Earrings!

Screen shot 2011-11-02 at 4.21.07 PMUPDATE: 11/16/11 9:58 PM MST | Congratulations to Ain't No Mom Jeans reader Marty Hayes Owen, winner of the .5 carat Moissanite stud earrings!  Winner was chosen at random by a number generated from random.org.

***

There’s not a much prettier or more classic earring than a simple diamond stud in this humble mama’s opinion.  But have you seen the price tag on those babies lately?!  We’re talkin’ $1,000 – $1,500 retail for a nice pair of .5-carat studs with good color and clarity.  Ugh.  That’s a chunk out of most any mama’s budget.  Enter Moissanite. . .


PB087137_messyhairIt’s a unique, laboratory-created gem chemically known as silicon carbide, and it actually has a greater refractive index (sparkles of white light) and more than twice the fire (sparkles of rainbow-colored light) than actual diamonds.  Oh, and it’s flawless.  And it doesn’t look even a little cheap.  And it’s a fraction of the cost.  Tough sell, huh?

 

PB087130_compare2S. and I both received a pair of the same gorgeous solitaire studs that we’re giving away from Charles & Colvard, the manufacturers of Moissanite, and I must say, as a lover of sparkly things, I was seriously impressed with the quality of these little gems.  I put them to the test with my own mama, a true diamond aficionada, and she too thought they had exceptional color and sparkle.  She even said they would fool her, too!  They just look like perfect little high-quality diamond studs, not cheapy fakes—check out our pics! 

 

Win a Pair of .5-Carat Moissanite Earrings!
Here's how to enter to win the Moissanite giveaway, a $199 value, compliments of Charles & Colvard: just “like” this post on Facebook and leave a comment below letting us know.  Entrants must be 18 or older and located in the US or Canada.  Winners will be chosen at random on Wednesday night, November 16th.

Good luck, Mamas!

P.S. – We don't publish reviews or recommend stuff we don't truly love.  Ever.  S. and I received Moissanite earrings as a consideration, but it did not affect our assessment of the product.  These babies are seriously pretty.
