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!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
