I love supporting women-owned businesses and local businesses so when Ruth Barzel reached out offering a giveaway of some pieces from her jewelry line I couldn't resist. Ruth Barzel is a Northern Virginia-based jewelry designer who crafts pieces that are unique, but so very wearable. Fashioned with semiprecious stones, pearls, fine wire, and a variety of sterling silver and gold-filled chains, Ruth creates her jewelry line in her home-based office and sells it in boutiques around the DC area, in Michigan, and even Dubai. For those in none of those locations, her entire collection is also available on Etsy.

This is not the first time I have featured Ruth Barzel Jewelry on my blog. Her collection is delicate yet makes a statement. Ruth hopes that her jewelry will add a bit of beauty to the lives of all who wear it and I think it does exactly that. Ruth really cares about those who choose to wear her jewelry and hopes the pieces are worn for a long while. If your jewelry breaks due to a defect in materials or workmanship, contact Ruth and she will fix it at no charge. If it breaks due to wear and tear, she will also fix it for a small fee.
I am so excited that Ruth Barzel is offering all three pieces featured in this blog post as a gift to one Wardrobe Oxygen reader. The Long Gold Chain Necklace is 41″ in length with a clasp so it can be worn long, doubled, or even tripled or wrapped around your wrist. Made of matte goldtone brass, the necklace is tarnish resistant and lightweight. The Multi Strand Bracelet is mixed gold-tone brass and aluminum chains with an adjustable length for all wrist sizes. It too is lightweight and tarnish resistant. The Abalone Teardrop Earrings are about 2″ in length and when you order you can choose from sterling silver or gold filled wire earwires. And yes international readers, you too are available to enter this giveaway!
