When we teamed up with Melinda Maria Jewelry to give away a super stylish Black Onyx Sliced Ring, we knew we'd get a kick out of all your different photos and interpretations of what A Perfect Summer means to you. And of course, with a gorgeous, celebrity-favorite piece of jewelry that won't be in shelves until September on the line, you guys delivered. Some of you were funny, some adorable, some of you put some serious effort in, and some just so classic Southern California that we couldn't help but smile. But there's only room for one winner. So read on to find out who's walking away with a brand new ring...
...and we're pleased to announce that the winner of the Melinda Maria Black Onyx Sliced Ring giveaway is none other than Ellen De Smet, better known as @DeSmetEllen, for a perfectly simple shot of summertime friendship that charmed us completely.
"@DeSmetEllen: @gofgla My perfect summer is all about spending time with friends, just enjoying each other's company and the sun"
Ellen, we couldn't have said it better ourselves, but since you could, you've won yourself a Black Onyx Sliced Ring from Melinda Maria, the same super-stylish, appropriate anywhere accessory that K-Stew herself has been happily rocking all over town. And until it goes on the open market in September, that'll make two of you. So enjoy your new ring, Ellen! We're sure enjoying your photo. And thanks to all of you who followed Melinda Maria on Twitter and liked Melinda Maria Jewelry on Facebook! Getting the latest updates on Melinda Maria's exquisite handcrafted jewelry is definitely its own reward, especially since you never know the next time you might win something just for being a fan.
Happy summer, everyone!
