****Thanks so much for your amazing interest in this giveaway. The giveaway is now officially closed. The winner will be announced tomorrow Friday 10/23 so check back to see if you won.****Thanks to Janae at JanaesJewels, I have another fabulous giveaway to present to you all. Janae is one of many wonderful jewelry artists that can be found in our etsy community. In her shop you will find a wide variety of pieces from classic stylish beaded pieces to set gemstone jewelry in nearly any type of metal you could want including gold. She is a very talented artist and I am sure that you will be able to find a wonderful piece of jewelry that you just can't do without in her lovely shop.
I couldn't have asked for a more appropriate donation to kickoff the giveaway for the month of October. The gemstone Pink Tourmaline is one of the official birthstones for October as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912 (opal is also a traditional October birthstone). It is also the stone for the Zodiac sign of Leo, and the accepted gem for the 8th wedding anniversary. In addition, October is national Breast Cancer Awareness month and as we all know pink is the adopted color for the breast cancer awareness campaign. So in addition to the fact that this ring is absolutely beautiful there are many other reasons to consider entering this giveaway. It would make a wonderful gift for the October birthday girl or breast cancer survivor in your life. Just imagine how delighted they would be to get this as a gift.
Here are the rules and specifics:

For Potential Sponsors
I never ask that a giveaway sponsor send me any merchandise personally. It is the responsibility of the sponsor to pay shipping charges and to ensure that the item is shipped in a timely manner. For this reason each sponsor determines if a giveaway will or will not be open to international participants.
Good luck to everyone!
