Giveaway | Noonday Collection

When Melissa from Noonday contacted me about a possible review and giveaway, I went to their website to see what kind of company Noonday was. I hadn't heard of them before but when their site opened up, I immediately recognized Kelle Hampton in one of the rotating pictures. Next I read through Noonday's story and mission, and finally peeked at the jewelry. But this time I was totally sold;)

If you haven't heard of Noonday, like I hadn't, let me talk them up for a second. Their purpose says that "Together we are building a flourishing world where children are cherished, we are connected, women are empowered, and people have jobs". All of the jewelry is handmade by over 2000 artisans from ten different developing countries. They use items like recycled artillery pieces from Ethiopia,  metalwork in Peru, Water Buffalo Horn in Vietnam, and Tagua seeds in Ecuador. Noonday reps travel the world to find these artisan entrepreneurs who are passionate about creating opportunity in their communities.  They believe in the dignity and design of their work, creating dignified jobs as a powerful way to alleviate poverty. So basically, the jewelry is beautiful, handmade, and is a part of a great cause. 


Noonday Collection's first trunk show was hosted by founder, Jessica Honegger, in her home as a means to raise money to adopt her son and third child from Rwanda. The style and purpose of the products drew an overwhelming response, and the business quickly grew beyond a fundraiser. Thanks to Noonday sales, Jessica and her hubby brought home their son Jack in October of 2011 and orphan care and prevention remain a core value.

Melissa said I could use this image which is a good representation of what Noonday is all about (click to see larger version):

This company is quite different than the rest, no? 

Here is where you can check them out, make a purchase, host a trunk show or become an Ambassador. Noonday's Spring line launches today, so have fun shopping!

But what do I think of the product itself? I picked the Clustered Charm Necklace after browsing every single long necklace on the site. I have been looking for something long and sort of 'fun' to wear with simple tops and this necklace totally fits the bill.

I don't own much yellow gold jewelry which makes this even more unique for my own collection, and I am in love with the pretty charms. It feels kind of eclectic and like I'm a cool mom when I'm wearing it;)

I think it will pair well with many of my tops and I'll probably just wear my trusty stud earrings with this piece. It has a lot going on and can speak for itself in a simple outfit, and I already know that Porter wants to eat this necklace whole (will have to distract him with another sparkly object, I guess).

The necklace feels substantial and expensive without being too heavy and it's just the right length for me. I really do love it!

  10. OMGoodness.. I adore their entire collection, but am in LOVE with the La Vela Bracelet! I am a lot like you in that I seem to wear a few classic pieces all the time but this bracelet would be uber special..... AND I would probably wear it all the time, lol! Thank you for the super sweet chance!

  11. I normally don't wear many accessories as i have a hard time styling anything! I love the 2 coin necklace though. Love statement pieces.

  12. I think my Noonday staple right now is the Jinja Scarf, but I also love the Falling Mukisa, the stackable paperbead bracelets, and I cannot live without my Wonder Cuff. I think that the Cluster Charm Necklace would go with a lot of stuff that I wear AND might even entertain my toddler during church (she loves to sit on my lap and look at my necklaces). BONUS!

  24. I love the adrift necklace. I'm a big fan of turquoise! I'm definitely have more of an understated/classic jewelry style. It also has to survive chasing after 4 boys!

  26. I like the necklace you picked. My husband's cousin in an Ambassador and she posted a picture of some earrings that looked like a fan. They have some great stuff and great purpose. I have a staple circle diamond necklace and earrings that I wear 90% of the time.
