Blue Steel Hearts & Butterflies Bracelet Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have just recently been able to review this awesome bracelet above called Hearts and Butterflies from a company called Blue Steel.

Here are some specifications on the bracelet for your info:

**Metal: Surgical Grade Stainless Steel
**Stock Number: SSBM-0264
**Dimensions: 8.07 L x .16" W
**Can be sized? No
**Color: Silver and Gold

I love the new Toggle styled bracelets because they are easier to work with and I should know because of the RA and the Fibromyalgia, some days my hands are swollen and I can't get them to work right so it is awesome that I can just slip that little slender cylinder thing they call a toggle into the round whole on the other side and there you have it! Ready to go in no time!

I am also very fond of gold as my number one source of jewelry but with the price of gold going up and getting worse, I was especially drawn to this bracelet because it mixed the two of them together. I like that because now I have gold and silver rings that I can mix match with everything. Same thing with earrings.

But, this past February 13th was our 14th anniversary and the next day was Valentine's Day, so my sweet husband got me this ring which is not gold, like he usually gets. The other bad luck that came was at first he got the earrings but the backs were so awful the earrings tipped over on my ears and I said no way with that kind of money you spent.

He said that they had a necklace or a ring for the same price and the saleslady said he could come back and exchange them if I didn't like them. I only wear my journey necklace so I told him to get the ring. Here is what it looked like and I know what you will be thinking when you see it:

Yes, it does look like the one that Kate Middleton is wearing somewhat from Princess Diana and I have always loved it and it's the one time that I really have truly loved a silver ring. I scolded him though when I found out how much it was but the store was having a half off sale plus he had an extra 20% coupon, so instead of paying $650 for the ring, he only paid a little over $275. I would have otherwise made him take it back.
We did not get each other much for Christmas this year and mostly gave to our families instead so he said this was to make up for all of that. I normally get a nice piece of jewelry for Christmas so this past year, he fooled me and gave it to me now. So, now that I have the silver ring, I can wear my new bracelet along with it and it won't look funny.

I have lots of gold bracelets and leather bracelets but not many silver ones. I think I only have one other and I love it also. I guess it is true what they say, the older you get, the broader your mind gets and you are more willing to accept things that you were too silly to accept when you are young.
Only explanation I can think of for me anyway, because silver is just as pretty as gold! Won't ever snub my nose at silver again, I promise. Back to Blue Steel, I have other pieces that I got to review for different events down the road but thought this one was appropriate for now.

Because the Giveaway Hop is called Spring Fever, to me that means the butterflies come back along with many other types of insects and birds but the butterflies are the most beautiful so that is why the Hearts and Butterflies bracelet is in the Spring Fever Giveaway. Don't you think it makes perfect sense now?
Here are two other bracelets I thought about but nixed because I loved the gold in the one I got:

Right now Blue Steel is having a sale on all jewelry that has hearts on them, so you can get some
really great deals! You can click on the box below and it will take you right there!
They are also offering 25% off of their New Collection and I saw a few pieces in there that I wouldn't mind having myself! These weren't there when I chose what I wanted, but I think what I got is pretty spectacular so I don't think I would change it even if I could. I did okay for myself and love all the pieces I got and can't wait to show you what else is in store in later events. 
And just remember, they have other types of jewelry also, not just bracelets. I focused on those today because that is what the prize is gonna be. But they have some awesome rings, earrings, necklaces, pendants and even sets where you can get 2 pieces that match.
They have a 30 day return policy that you can return items for whatever reasons and they have free shipping on orders over $100 and in this economy, every little bit helps. And also remember that there are some items for men, so don't count them out!

Great review on Blue Steel. They host a lot of giveaways on Facebook. I have yet to win. Love the jewelry you purchased, especially the blue sapphire ring. Sapphire is one of my favorite stones! :)

So pretty! I don't have a preference for gold or silver; I like jewelry that incorporates both so I don't have to worry about matching my earrings to my bracelet or whatever.
