Taking My Chances on Melissa's Give Away Ring

I am taking a break from my nature escapades first, and allow some of you to take a glimpse into the other side of me when I am not hiking :) If I am not out in the trails, one of the simple joys I take delight is entertaining my femininity. Aside from gardening and taking delight with the blooms and blossoms around, I also love to "prettify" myself, well, just like most ladies. I think men sometimes don't understand it, but most of us women love to do it :)

When Melissa, of Melissa Jewelry and Gems, also the founder of our "Blogging for Fun" group, sponsored a contest for her 40th birthday on August 8, I got excited when I saw the prize.

On her birthday, Melissa will be giving away the above pretty hot pink tourmaline with white topaz ring. The ring is sterling silver, size 6 1/2 band ring. Each stone measures approximately 3 mm round, for a total of 1/3 carat. For more information about this ring, and how to enter the contest, please click here to visit Melissa's post about her birthday give-away.

I love pink, and the above ring I know will go perfectly with my other pink accessories, like this pink earring which by the way I also got from Melissa.
Melissa has a beautiful selection of jewelries that she herself made and you can visit Melissa's Jewelry and Gems site to check her other items and store. Even if you are a guy, someone in your family would enjoy "prettifying" themselves too :) . The contest is definitely not limited to females only for the ring would surely be a joyful gift.
Even though I know I may not win the above ring, but I am taking my chances to own it :) I hope you take your chance too, and join Melissa's 40th Birthday contest. To Melissa, I wish you an advance happy birthday.
