Belly Charms Mother's Bracelet Review and Giveaway!

Hello everyone!! I know I've been seriously slacking around here lately, sorry for that. I'm hoping with this New Year and the end of the Holidays I'll have more time to get back to blogging and catch up with some of my favorite internet friends. To start us off nicely, I have a great review and giveaway!

During my pregnancy with Rosemary, I remember looking through websites checking out personalized Mother’s jewelry. That’s where I first came across Belly Charms.


Belly Charms is an online store offering a large variety of jewelry from pregnancy belly button rings, mother’s bracelets, child safety ID's, children’s jewelry and so much more. Sonya (the owner and designer of Belly Charms) has such a large selection of products; I am amazed at her creativity and talent!

I was so fortunate to be given a wonderful opportunity to review a beautiful piece of jewelry from Belly Charms!

I selected a stunning Swarovski Pearl & Antique Silver Mother's Bracelet. The bracelet comes with 5.6mm silver pewter beads separated by sterling silver spacers. The name on the bracelet is surrounded by 6mm Swarovski Pearls and antique silver beads. There is a nice selection of colors to choose from and sizes as well, so that made ordering really easy. I chose the rose colored pearls for Rosemary’s October birthday, and cream rose to accent. My bracelet shipped very quickly after I ordered and arrived packaged in a lovely box.

I couldn’t be happier with how my bracelet turned out. As you can see, it’s perfect!

It is so professional looking and gorgeous, I’m still surprised that someone made this by hand! It’s so lovely, very well made, and since it’s personalized with Rosemary, so very – very special to me. I honestly treasure my bracelet so much and I wear it whenever I think of it.

This bracelet retails for $42.99 and I truly think it is worth every dime!

I know I’ll have this beautiful keepsake forever, and you can bet I’ll be getting matching ones for my future children!

Please check out the Belly Charms website, Blog, Etsy, Facebook and twitter sites for more information on all the fabulous products Sonya has to offer!

Not only was Sonya gracious enough to offer a bracelet to me, but she is offering one to one of my very lucky readers!! The winner is in for a real treat!

  79. How am I supposed to choose 1 thing when there is much that I like at Belly Charms..But since you forced me to choose I would go with a peace necklace and earring set..Or maybe the personalized anklet..Noooo...Definitely the double heart toe ring..Reminds me of the first ring my hubby gave me when we first started going together over 30 yrs ago..Reguardless, I'm following the both of you all over the place to point I feel like a stalker now..No just kidding..CLSGOOSE(at)MSN(dot)COM
