This post was compensated by JTV, and the company provided three necklaces for the purposes of this post (the piece pictured here, as well as identical necklaces for my mother and for the giveaway – so if you win, the three of us will be Jewelry Triplets).

My mother is both very easy to shop for and very much not.
She likes everything I give her because she’s my mother and mothers are contractually obligated to love things like bedazzled pipe-cleaner statuettes, but for as long as I can remember she’s had the same pleasant-but-fairly-even reaction to my gifts: “Oh sweetie, thank you!” That kind of thing. Which is lovely, but still: I’m always trying to find ways to get her all fluttery and I can’t believe you got me this!
What can I say? The woman doesn’t flutter easily. She does, however, make one exception, and it is for diamonds. (There is no woman on the planet who does not flutter over diamonds.)
So? Diamonds it is. (And emeralds and an insanely large opal, because if you’re going to go big why not go MASSIVE?)
* * * Diamond Necklace Giveaway * * *
I told my mother not to read today’s post, because one of the things that she’s getting for Mother’s Day this year is pretty much guaranteed to elicit a fairly epic flutter – so much so that I wanted to make sure that one of you got to flutter, too. And so…sooooooo…we’re giving away the JTV opal, emerald and diamond necklace pictured here to one of you. (I KNOW. I’m so excited. I hope you are too! Eeeeee #diamonds.)
