Contest: Enter to Win a Unique Engagement or Wedding Ring





Oh wow. I am so excited to announce this contest!

Turtle Love Committee is giving away a ring to one of you. You can choose from any ring in stock, including engagement rings or wedding bands for men or women.

To Enter:
  1. Leave your first name and last initial in the comments section (enter only once, please)
  2. One winner will be randomly selected
  3. Enter by Tuesday, April 28 at 11:59pm EST
Here's what Turtle Love Committee says about what they do:
The jewelry you select as a public celebration of your relationship sets the tone for the future. The value of the ring should be based on the love and commitment it symbolizes, not the financial expense it represents. A ring from the collection at Turtle Love Committee is priceless - it represents an emotional commitment, not a financial one. Each relationship is unique, and the jewelry collected by the Committee is carefully selected for design and quality to include the perfect ring to fit your lifestyle and your relationship. It doesn't matter what kind of a relationship you're in, or with whom. We're confident that if a distinctive ring fits your relationship, you can find the right piece with TLC.
I had a follow-up conversation with Adrianne of Turtle Love Committee to find out their approach to mitigating the harmful effects of mining. She said that her goal is to make TLC "as socially-responsible as possible." The company's mission is "to focus people on love and commitment and away from a culture of consumerism, and that includes a commitment to the people and resources around us." They are working on creating a system to identify jewelry that is environmentally and socially responsible.

She continued, "I am definitely committed to making TLC as people-friendly and environment-friendly as possible, and it's quite a juggling act between keeping price down, getting sales up, and meeting our goals of social responsibility and fostering social change."

I definitely know what she means by the "juggling act." When Matt and I were planning our wedding, we had to juggle several different goals that often conflicted with each other. Yes, my dress was budget-friendly, but it wasn't made from eco-friendly fabrics, and I have no idea about the working conditions. Yes, the meat we served was organic and local, but it was expensive. Living in ways that align with our values is a constant challenge, for sure.

I'll stop talking now so you can go enter to win. Good luck!

haha, 25 years ago my father told my mother that he didn't believe in the diamond cartel and would not submit to the diamond's trumped up value. Instead they went with a tiny sapphire. And oh boy, am I the child of my parents! Hooray for the practical!

I love TLC rings. Their Blake and Katahdin bands are amazing. My partner loves the Drake. I like that we've found somewhere that carries rings that we both like.
