Giveaway: 31 Bits

Today is the first day of our annual Home for the Holidays week! And I”m psyched to kick it off with a fun giveaway, the first gift I”m highlighting for your holidays.

Today”s giveaway comes from a company that I have grown to absolutely love. I received my first 31 Bits necklace last Christmas and it”s one of my favorites. Previously, I wasn”t a huge jewelry fan, but I could definitely see adding more 31 Pieces to my collection– I was won over by the company”s story, and hooked on the punches of color and style that their jewelry brings to my wardrobe. It has a sort of natural vibe to it, too, that I love.

Every necklace and bracelet (and headband!) from 31 Bits is handcrafted by a woman in Uganda.

With its multi strands of various shapes, sizes and colors, the Rockwood bracelet will go with a variety of outfits, and its bit of metallic flair lends it to bringing a punch dressiness to your day.

The Swift necklace incorporates ombré shades of fuchsia in a cascading shape. It”s such a fun statement piece to add to make even a simple outfit stand out.

31 Bits jewelry is perfect for gift-giving and sure to make its recipient wow over its beauty and its heart of gold. Who doesn”t love a gift that provides wonderful opportunities to empower women to rise above poverty?

If you love beautiful jewelry and would love to get involved with what 31 Bits is doing, be sure to check out how to host a 31 Bits house party.

Would you like to win the Rockwood bracelet and the Swift necklace? I”d love for you to give one to someone you love this Christmas.

  1. I am very simple when it comes to jewelry… which is why I like 31 bits. My go to piece is a really pretty, long strand of pearls my mother-in-law gave to me… from Hawaii!

  2. Julie Andrea says:

    Love, love, love jewelry! My go to piece has some sadness attached to it, but still brings a smile to my face. It’s the engagement and wedding ring set given to me by my sweetheart David. Sadly, he passed away before we could be married, so I wear the set on my right hand. The anniversary of his death is November 25. sigh … RIP sweetheart. Julie

  3. Jenny Myers says:

    Thanks for the chance! What a great company

  4. I love my string of pearls. My husband surprised me with them after our house was robbed and all of my jewelry stolen.

  5. I’ve got the best little stamped metal bracelet (says “hope”). I wear it constantly.

  6. My wedding ring… And a watch… Just that… :)

  7. Aww I love a necklace that my boyfriend gave to me when we were first dating. It’s a simple silver chain with 7 rings on it, standing for life, love, longevity, friendship, health, wealth and happiness

  8. Pearl earrings: classic and beautiful. And of course my wedding ring.

  9. I love a tree necklace that my husband designed for me. His thoughtfulness is amazing.

  14. I have this red necklace that seems to be the one I always go for.

  15. My wedding ring, and (cheap) timex stainless steel watch with indiglo!

  17. I always have my wedding ring on and usually some earrings.

  18. Would love this!

  19. My wedding ring, my Citizen watch, and sometimes a pair of earrings

  20. I always have my wedding rings on, and typically my watch and either a small pair of silver hoop earrings or my small diamond studs. I am not very good at picking out larger jewelry and need a lesson!

  21. My husband bought me a beautiful watch after our last stressful move. I wear it every day and every time I look at it I think of him…..Okay, sometime I think “OH NO! WE’RE LATE!”, but most of the time I think of him.

  22. Wow these are beautiful, I wonder if I give enough hints my husband will buy one for my stocking this year.

  23. Wow thanks for sharing about 31bits. I haven’t come across them before. What an amazing company! Gotta love beautiful art and social justice in action!!

  24. Cowpunkmom says:

    I don’t wear much jewelry, but when I do, I like short necklaces, often a few of them all at once. And when I do put in earrings, they often don’t match each other, but rather compliment each other, like a moon in one ear and Saturn in the other.

  25. Katie Miller says:

    a ring my hubby bought me

  26. Wedding ring and watch with a timer (to help children with transitions!) Occassionally a bracelet, necklace or earrings, but only occassionally!

  27. wedding rings, big watch and simple earrings… but I love jewelry and like variety!

  29. Alison Stroud says:

    My wedding ring!

  33. A simple silver necklace with a silver O.

  34. Alexis Russell says:

    I wear my wedding band and college class ring every day, but I’m trying to simplify and streamline my wardrobe and use jewelry like this as my statement pieces.

  35. I always wear my wedding ring, but on special occasions I have a beautiful pearl necklace my mother got me for my wedding that I like to wear.

  36. My paper bead necklace from Kisses From Katie….love, love, love it.

  37. Jessica Brammer says:

    I always have my wedding ring and some stud earrings, but definitely want to branch out!

  38. My go-to jewelry is my wedding ring, but if I want to dress up switch between two special necklaces: a single green pearl pendant my parents gave me for my 20th birthday and a diamond pendant my husband gave me for Valentine’s Day.

  39. Beautiful! I am making a concentrated effort to be responsible about the labor sources of my purchases, so it would be fun to win this! And beautiful to boot… I think I have to check out their website either way!

  40. Good morning! My go to piece of jewelry is usually my wedding ring, and a promis ring from my husband. Also (if I have time!) a pair of silver earrings. Date night though I add in a lot of flair lol!

    Sarah M

  45. Wedding ring and crucifix necklace.

  46. The only jewelry I’ve worn every single day for the past almost 6 years is my wedding band. Husband and I have matching rings (thought mine is significantly thinner), and I love that mine is simple and safe for anything I have to do with my hands! Other jewelry comes and goes, but the wedding band stays.

  47. Wedding rings and watch- have to have them or I feel nakey!

  48. Always my wedding and engagement rings, and then long dangly earrings depending on the outfit. I realized the other day, that the earrings I wear the most are all ones that my best friend has given me over our almost 20 year friendship. Some weeks I wear a different pair from her everyday.

  49. I have a ring my husband gave me after my second child was born.

  50. I have an old silver locket I bought 30 years ago at a flea market that stays on my neck most of the time.
