Herkimer Diamond

I received one Grade AA+ Herkimer Diamond for review. This particular diamond in fact, pictured above.

I am a girl who loves sparkly things and this beautiful gem fits the bill perfectly! It is larger than I expected. When placed in the palm of my hand you can clearly see its' size.
With its' six sides and visible enhydro bubbles, this piece really has character and brilliance.
Imagine the wonderful things you can do... a necklace, a charm for a bracelet, a ring.... so many ideas swirling around.
Then I did a thorough browse of the website and learned about drilled Herkimer diamonds. This would be what you would normally attach to the image of a traditional diamond. So now it's a question of getting it drilled or not.
Oh, but it's beauty takes my breath away and I cannot harm it that way, no matter how beautiful it could become. There is something so much more special in its' natural beauty.
Guess it's true what they say about diamonds being a girls best friend.

To learn more about Herkimer Diamonds please visit the website.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. What a rock! Looks like it will be too big for a ring, for my little fingers at least.

  2. Wow, so pretty! I like the natural look of the gem! I've never heard of Herkimer diamonds before, but the site has a lot of information on its qualities, grade and other information! Very helpful and interesting for a complete novice like me! Anyway, I wouldn't want to get it drilled either. Thanks for sharing!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
