Today I’m delighted to talk about long time APW Sponsor Turtle Love Co. Turtle Love is a women-owned business (for the win!) with ethical practices, and beautiful wedding jewelry – affordable wedding rings and unique engagement rings, thank you very much. And new readers need to go, post haste, to read Adrianne’s (TLC’s founder) APW post on wedding rings… because it will blow your mind and totally explain to you why she does what she does.
But. Before we start talking about wedding jewelry, I wanted to take a moment to talk about Turtle Love Co’s Valentine’s Day Gift selection. Because they are awesome, Turtle Love Co. wanted me to suggest these lovely Clean Water Necklaces and Earrings. First off, they are pretty little things, but more importantly, TLC is donating $30 to WaterAid for the purchase of each $50 Clean Water Necklace or pair of Earrings, with the idea that this amount is enough to provide a person with clean water and sanitation for life. Clearly (ooh, the pun), a lovely Valentine’s Day gift, and not one that TLC is actually making any money off of. Oh! And if you like Turtle Love Co’s Facebook page between now and Valentine’s Day, they will donate 50 cents to WaterAid. So you should do that (I just did).
And second, as one thrifty person to another, I want to point you in the direction of their amazing sale going on now, where each item is 50% off with promo code LOVETLC. While clearly you should be asking for the Single Pearl Drop Earrings for Valentine’s Day (on sale for $17.50), may I also suggest the Triceratops Dinosaur Necklace (on sale for $35) for the fierce woman in your life with a sense of humor. Or maybe, just maybe, the Tiny Hammered Silver Wedding Ring (On sale for $35. Sigh. Perfect.)
But lets get to the crux of the issue, and talk about Turtle Love Co’s stunning wedding and engagement ring selection. When TLC started, they featured only super affordable wedding jewelry (all of which they still carry). But they’ve begun to really expand their offerings, and are now carrying a wide range of jewelry, which I think is extra super awesome. Excellent customer service, beautiful packaging, and ethical practices at all price points? Sign me up.
So I would like to point you in the direction of some of my favorite pieces. Can we discuss the Gossamer Diamond Wedding Ring, who’s subtle middle eastern flair catches my heart? Or my new favorite, the Exquisite Nest Diamond Engagement Ring? Turtle Love Co. also specializes in the non-diamond engagement ring, something that I have a particular soft spot for. And I love that they do this in a whole range of price points with a whole range of work by independent artists. How can I not love a company where the Pink Tourmaline Tidal Engagement Ring sits next to the Oval Amethyst Ring?
So whether you’re looking for wedding jewelry or Valentine’s Day gifts, go browse. And support a truly fantastic company, and deeply talented independent artists (I think that means we all win).
