Baroni Designs Rice Pearl Necklace Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have some of my own pictures that I will show you in a minute but none of them really captured the beauty of this necklace and so I grabbed an image from Baroni Designs so that you could see how beautiful this Rice Pearl Necklace really is!
Baroni Designs describe it like this:
Petite rice pearls, interspersed with gold or silver accents, and finished with a coin pearl pendant, is perfect worn long or layered. Sterling silver.  And it is 32" Long,  PEARL, 3/4" L.
I wanted a necklace that was long because I really prefer necklaces that don't feel like they are choking me. Plus, I have my diamond journey necklace that my husband gave me a few years back and I never take it off and this way I can wear it and the longer necklace at the same time. 
Plus, I am always thinking ahead and know that in the winter while wearing thicker sweaters and such, you need a longer necklace that can be seen.  I think this is gonna be one of my favorite pieces for a long time to come. Once you see it for real, your eyes will pop just like mine did. All I can truly say to Baroni Designs is, "Thank You for one awesome birthday present!"

Yes, I am having a birthday on May 1st, the day that this giveaway starts, so instead of me getting a bunch of goodies, you guys are gonna reap the benefits and have an Awesome Mother's Day!              
See what I mean about my darn camera! Everything looks gold for some odd reason even the pearls which we all know is not gold. My camera takes white colored things and silver and makes them gold or else I am doing something wrong.  So, at least with the top picture you get a real sense of what the color truly is (which is white pearls with gold parts along the way) and with this picture, you see how nice and long the strand is and that it is 2 layers.
Baroni Designs has alot of different necklaces and other pieces that will take your breath away and I am not a big fan of huge eye bulging jewelry. I like the simple and beautiful pieces like these Rainwater Earrings:
They are simple and are almost like my necklace above but not quite the same but could pass if needed.  Oh, another thing about me, I really do prefer gold over silver and I gravitate more towards things that have gold in them, but I am starting to learn to like silver as it seems gold is getting harder and harder to come by. They have a huge selection of earrings, so go over and take a look around.

I also have to admit that I love the colors of green, even teal or turquoise because my birth month is May and I thought this collection was really awesome too! They call this collection Emerald Forest although it's not really emeralds but they are quite cute.
I actually found a set of bracelets that I really liked also and I bet once you get on this site, you will have a hard time deciding yourself what to pick! There are so many delicious items to choose from!
This is the Trinidad Bracelet Set and it certainly has my gold and there is also a faint white single strand in there too, so I figure it would match my necklace somewhat. This is how Baroni describes this bracelet:  Strands of rutilated quartz and Chinese turquoise, colors of sand and sea, are combined in a striking seven strand stretch bracelet set. 24k gold plate over sterling.
Lastly, for those of you who love charms or stones to put on your necklaces, I thought I would show you a few of Baroni's Charms. I actually believe it or not, like them all, even the silver ones. When stones look good in silver, it's too hard to resist.  Although the gold ones really sparkle, don't they?

To give you an even better idea of some of their other jewelry, here is a video that showcases some of their really awesome stuff:

Lastly, they have a really good Guarantee on their Jewelry:

I found this under Company Info:
Artist and designer Sarah Baroni has always believed that jewelry and adornments are more than just external trappings. Since its inception in 1991, Baroni has made it their passion to create designs in jewelry that reflect who we are at our deepest level, pieces that are created not only as beautiful adornments but also as testaments to the spirit of the wearer: fearless, vulnerable, wild, free, serene, rebellious, kind, nurturing…and deeply, marvelously human.

Nestled in a small Northern California coastal town and filled with artists, academics, and free spirits, Baroni is a big part of the local community. Support of local non-profits is a priority, as is running a green business that helps sustain the community and the planet. Most of all, Baroni believes that success is meant to be shared, and challenges are to be faced together.

It is said that when even the slightest glimmer of gratitude infuses the heart, fear and darkness are banished. Sarah’s gratitude for her community—and for all of you—is poured into every piece she designs.

May these shining, wearable tokens of gratitude from the Baroni team serve to awaken that deep love in your heart as well.
