Brilliant Earth Style Challenge

Happy Wednesday everyone!

We are covered in snow here in North Carolina but instead of talking about the weather I am going to talk about beautiful jewelry...and diamonds. Now, I am not a big jewelry wearer or collector. I went through a phase at one time where I was slowly working up to a nice collection of beautiful jewelry like a small sapphire or some rose gold here and there. Lately I have been wanting to get back to collecting special pieces that can stand the test of time. When I was contacted by Brilliant Earth to take some of their jewelry and style it up I was excited. I can window shop diamonds and gold! Sure!

Ethically sourced diamonds and engagement rings are Brilliant Earth's forte. They specializes in going above and beyond the current industry standards to guarantee that their diamonds originate from pure, ethical sources.

For this Personality Style Challenge we were given six different personalities to chose from. 1) jeans & tee shirt kind of gal, 2) floral, feminine styles & patterns, 3) glamorous like stilettos and glitter, 4) minimalist, no-nonsense elegant style, 5) vintage dresses & thrift store shopping, and 6) cutting edge.


 I toyed with the idea of going with a personality outside of my comfort zone. Like this fabulous Dallas lady Joan Collins. Just look at that vengeful stare! Her diamonds are intimidating ya'll. But that's how Joan got things done. And shoulder pads of course. She probably hid diamonds in her shoulder pads for extra power.
 I also liked the idea of the vintage girl because that is close to my heart as well. In the end I went for the minimalist, no-nonsense, elegance style because that is who I feel like I am right at this moment. This may change people! So don't hold me to it if I show up in a hot pink prom dress for Christmas.

Doesn't this style board just scream casual elegance while strolling through the market picking up brie and champagne for dinner?

Yes. It does. Now I want brie.

Just a little bit more about Brilliant Earth....not only do they make it a priority to stop the trade in blood diamonds they also donate 5% of profits to help communities harmed by the jewelry industry build a brighter future.

Disclosure- I was not compensated for this post in any way. I participated for a fun challenge. All opinions in this post are my own. I used polyvore for my styleboard.
