Happy Monday, and welcome to Day 7! Today’s sponsor is PONO, a purveyor of fabulous jewelry – and a star of recent TV hit “The Good Wife.”
Don’t remember seeing PONO in “The Good Wife”? Let’s take a closer look! Main character Kalinda has been wearing PONO’s Hinge Bracelet in every episode! The show has a whole stock of PONO’s fabulous pieces that they’ve been featuring in their weekly saga, so keep your eyes peeled for feature PONO debuts!
Now as much as I love “The Good Wife,” what I’m really crazy about is PONO! “PONO is an accessory line made by people who care. Conceived by Joan Goodman six years ago, PONO is a process and a philosophy, where deep heart-felt concern about environmental conditions meet cutting-edge manufacturing methods.
Inspired by classic elements, vintage design, and nature, PONO is best described as modernism with a timeless ideal. Joan creates personal masterpieces using beautiful Italian resins, natural woods, shell, and natural horn.” Read more about PONO here.
PONO’s jewelry is just my style! I love the luxe materials and beautiful colors; the range of rainbow hues and soothing neutrals is perfect for mixing and matching with every outfit in your closet! The Paradox Earrings in Raspberry (top right corner above) are an absolute favorite and I adore the pairing of wood and Swarovski crystals. Their list price is $265, but PONO is selling them for only $55 – totally affordable and totally chic.
Another favorite is the City Necklace in Silver ($95). “With its unpredictable faceted beads and cool metallic finish, the PONO City Necklace in Silver turns the rigidity of modernism on its head. The unique and lengthy sequence of beads arranged on a brass chain creates a spectacle of light, its ever-changing luminescence enchanting all in its path.”
I received the City Necklace for review, and am completely head-over-heels! I’m a big fan of layering necklaces and long strands that can be wound around several times. Unfortunately, many necklaces made for stacking are heavy and unwieldy. The City Necklace is incredibly light, which makes it perfect for making a stress-free statement! The multi-faceted beads add a further touch of glamor, as they reflect light and pick up whatever color is in my outfit.
PONO’s pieces are well made, with top quality ingredients. The prices are definitely affordable, especially when considering the materials used in their creation!
And that brings me to today’s giveaway… PONO is giving one of you lucky ladies your very own City Necklace in Silver as well! Here’s how to enter…
