Al Hashimi Pearls Giveaway: Win a Real Gold and Pearl Bracelet

Last year in November, when my blog turned 7 years old, I had promised you a giveaway. It's Feb now, but these things take time. Okay, okay, I took time. But it's here now and it couldn't be at a better time because it's February and it's the season of luuurrrrrrrve. Let me show you how much I love you, by offering you this beautiful real gold and natural Bahraini pearl bracelet from Al Hashimi Pearls. It's worth BD 170 and I'm giving it away for free to one lucky follower. The bracelet is elegant, dainty and goes with any outfit. I picked it especially for you, dear readers, to say thank you for all the love you have shown me over the years and keep showing me. I appreciate each and every one of you.

I've always loved pearls, and Al Hashimi Pearls is by far my favourite for real natural Bahraini pearl jewellery. The jewellery store is one of the oldest on the island, run by the Shah family, headed by Vijay Shah who came to Bahrain from India in 1982. Located in the heart of the Manama Souq, they have an incredible range of luxury gold and pearl jewellery, as well as a breathtaking collection of diamond jewellery. Their divers find pearls from the waters around Bahrain and their in-house artisans handcraft the pieces. I love that their jewellery is designed by Vijay Shah, as well as his young daughter Ishita Shah. The entire family comprising of husband, wife, and three adult children is involved in the family business. Having known and worked with them for quite some time now, I'm blown away by their dedication to the trade and their level of expertise in the pearling industry. 

This Valentine's Day, AHP has launched a campaign telling women to love themselves and treat themselves. Usually, Valentine's Day makes me gag but I love this message of making yourself happy. Why wait for a man? Whether we're single or in a relationship, we have the power to make ourselves feel pampered and loved. So on 14 Feb, get yourself some lovely pink coloured dark chocolate from Maya La Chocolaterie, book yourself a spa treatment for one at Sparadise, and buy yourself a beautiful piece of handcrafted, exquisite jewellery from Al Hashimi Pearls that you'll enjoy for years to come. Sounds like a good V Day to me! 

P.S: I have not been paid by Sparadise and Maya to plug them here, I just love them.

For their V Day collection, AHP is showcasing the Prive Collection, a modern, trendy and lighter jewellery line designed by the young and bright Ishita Shah, keeping us working professionals in mind. I'm a big fan of this collection as all the pieces are delicate enough to wear daily, and in a price range that can be afforded by the young working girl. They are also showcasing their diamond jewellery collection this V Day, in case you want to splurge.

Coming back to the giveaway, this bracelet is a rope chain design with natural Bahraini pearls, set in 21k yellow gold. It's worth BD 170. Here's how to enter:
