While Marilyn Monroe claimed that “Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend”, I have to disagree. Jewellery is a girls best friend, period! Especially when the items happen to be unique, gorgeous, and support a wonderful cause.
In steps the wonderful folks at Novica. Partnered with the folks at National Geographic to give talented artisans from around the world access to the world market. All while adding the aspect of fair trade into the mix. In fact, Novica is one of the leaders in fair trade artisan websites.
The Optimistic Beauty has paired with Novica to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a $75 gift certificate to choose their favourite piece(s).
I had a thorough look at the Novica website for the last 2 weeks, and let me tell you this. Everytime I looked I found new pieces that were more and more exciting then the last. Novica is packed with thousands of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, home decor items, and then some.
When looking for new pieces to add to my collection I look for items that are classy, unique, and unlike anything available in my small Canadian Town. While looking on the Novica website I fell in love with these earrings from Khun Boom. Kyanite Chandelier Earrings “World of Blue”.
The only downside? Shipping to Canada is a tad high, especially in comparison to the rate to the US. I could definitely see myself ordering from Novica more frequently if the Canadian Shipping Rates weren’t so high.
Excited for the giveaway yet? Then head on over to Novica and have a look at their vast collection. Then come back here and let me know what you would spend your $75 gift certificate on. Its that easy!
