Review/Giveaway: Sincerely Ginger Jewelry Paw Print Collection



Among my very favorite things is discovering companies that include charitable causes as a part of their focus - it's been my pleasure to be able to review of few of these, and now I get to do another!

Sincerely Ginger is a line of quality jewelry, currently available in two collections: the Pinwheel Birthstone Collection that supports the American Red Cross, and the Paw Print Collection, which provides a generous portion of the sales to the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).

PAWS is the sort of charity near and dear to my heart.  Our own dog, Sadie has been with us for many years now. She was a rescue dog and is now in her mid-teens.

No-kill shelters that help find forever homes for dogs like her are doing incredibly important work.

Sincerely Ginger's Jewelry Paw Print Collection includes a variety of pieces that portray a dog's paw print. All of Ginger's jewelry is made with fine quality silver or gold, and some include precious gems as well. This isn't costume jewelry and prices reflect the materials that are used.

I received for review a pair of the Paw Earrings with Swarovski CZ, which sells for $75.00 on her website.  I was charmed before I even opened the package by the cloth and ribbon wrapped box, and was very happy when I opened it to reveal the earrings.


These earrings, along with Sincerely Ginger's other silver jewelry, are made with a type of silver called Argentium Silver, which not only provides a lovely highly reflective white shine that is very tarnish resistant, but is also made with recycled silver so that it reduces impact on the environment.  Crystal chips provide an added bit of glitter.  This same design is also available with diamonds for $360.

When it comes to earrings, there are two things that will lead me to wear them often:

1. Do they look good?  That seems like a no brainer, because who would buy jewelry they don't think looks good?  But sometimes earrings look better on their card than in my ears - especially dangles, which sometime hang at an odd angle so that I'm constantly adjusting them.  Sometimes the color simply doesn't suit me, or the earrings get lost or tangled in my hair.

2. Is it comfortable? The answer to this can be no for several reasons - earrings that are heavy enough to pull, or if they are made with reactive metals that lead to itching.  Sometimes, they seem to just not be well balanced, leading to their either trying to fall out, or to jamming themselves into my earlobe in an uncomfortable way.  If I am breathing a sigh of relief when it's time to take them out, I'm probably going to hesitate before wearing them again.

The Sincerely Ginger Silver Paws Earrings pass both of these issues with flying colors.  They lay like a dream, and catch the light very easily.  The curved hook is attractively shaped and stays in place (small plastic tubes come with them to ensure that they don't get lost).  They cause absolutely no irritation, either where they are inserted into my ear or on the skin where the dangle touches.

And in fact, they're so comfortable that a couple weeks ago, after I'd put them on, I forgot all about them and slept in them - and still didn't realize I had them in.  I don't know if I've ever slept in dangle earrings before without quickly realizing the mistake, because that is uncomfortable!

But I didn't realize it at all until the next morning - and in fact, I've kept them in since, with no problems and no discomfort at all!

In addition to Sincerely Ginger's Jewelry Collections, she is also now offering soy candles in a range of colors and scents.  Like the jewelry, a portion of the sales price goes to the buyer's choice of charity (PAWS or the American Red Cross), and on the lid of the candles it says, "With this Candle I helped save a life."

All in all, I am very happy with these earrings, and with Sincerely Ginger's focus on giving back, and would heartily recommend her jewelry to anyone seeking high quality, fun and unique jewelry.  I think any of these pieces would make a welcome gift and could easily become a signature piece for a dog loving woman.

I am really excited that RCHReview is able to host a Giveaway of Sincerely Ginger's Textured Paw Necklace!  This gorgeous piece, valued at $100, is made of Argentium Silver, and the paw has a textured surface sure to catch the light as the wearer moves.  The pendant comes with a 20" silver chain.

  49. The birthstone pinwheel group caught my eye, and looked specifically at the April one, since that is my daughter's birthstone. Very pretty, but that price seems somewhat out of line for the very small diamond and the price of silver.
