Share Your Sparkle

I had wanted a pair of Hillberg + Berk earrings like forever but I never pulled the trigger because it was too much money to spend to not be able to wear them.  I used to be able to wear earrings no problem but one year for our anniversary while we were dating, Greg bought me a pair of earrings from a jeweller in Saskatoon. Unfortunately, they destroyed my ears and I have never been able to wear earrings since.  I did wear a pair of pearls for my wedding but they didn't stay in very long.  When I was home for Christmas, my sister mentioned that she wanted to buy a pair and I said I wish I could wear them. She told me that she hadn't heard of anybody having problems with them so when I got back to Calgary I made the decision to make the plunge. 

The earrings shipped super quick which made me super happy.  I ordered them Wednesday night and I had them Friday morning.  They were coming from Regina so I didn't expect it to take too long.  I was so excited to open up the box and see my earrings.

When I opened the box I was obsessed with the pretty glitter paper that the earrings were wrapped in.  I love when companies make the extra effort to ship the earrings out in such a beautiful way.  Then I noticed on the inside of the box there was a quote from the CEO of Hillberg + Berk and I was surprised that her name was not Hillberg or Berk. I tried to find out how she came up with it but their website didn't provide me with any of that information.  

I think one of my favorite things about this company, aside from the fact that they are based out of Saskatchewan and are full of sparkle, is that purchases help fuel their purpose to inspire sparkle in the world through the empowerment of women.  Each year, Hillberg + Berk develop initiatives and partnerships dedicated to helping women lead amazing lives.  

The ones I chose to purchase were the Pink Hope Sparkle Ball Studs made to help women capture their sparkle while helping a great cause at the same time.  10% of all proceeds from the sale of these earrings go to directly to the Canadian Cancer Society.  They are definitely more pink in real life then they were online but I still love them very much.  I have worn them  3 or 4 times and so far my ears have been responding well.  If I wear them too long they start to itch and I have to take them out.  Thankfully, it has always happened near or at the end of the day so it has worked out well.  If my ears continue to respond positively to the studs then maybe another time I will get a pair of white ones or something haha.

  1. I have the same trouble with earrings. I might have one pair of silver hoops I can wear, but I never seem to get around to them.
