Sitara (Review + Giveaway)

This is a sponsored post from Sitara with my unbiased thoughts. 

Have you heard of Sitara?  Sitara Collections is an online destination for home decor, travel needs, fine jewelry, fantastic gift selections and personal luxuries you won't find anywhere else.   

I recently had the opportunity to review one of their fine jewelry items.  I fell in love with these gorgeous Black Onyx Gold Plated Earrings. I love that they are both simple and elegant at the same time and I was drawn to the decorative gold design, it gives them that added handmade element.

All of their wonderful products are hand crafted by talented artisans, most of whom are keeping centuries-old techniques and designs alive while creating modern treasures. And how great is it that every piece is handmade? In addition to fine jewelry, Sitara Collections also features extraordinary décor items like this great Handmade Mango Wood Bowl Set.

And elegant Pashmina - how gorgeous is this embroidered one?

On a charitable note, 
"Sitara Foundation currently has one main project: the financial support of the School for Educational Development (Shiksha Vikas Vidyalaya or SVV), which is located in the northern Indian village of Chanchali. It’s a school established by Vinay Singh, the Indian-born husband of Sitara founder Linda Singh, as a vehicle to supplement the education of children in this remote village. Without additional help in subjects like English and math, most or all of the local children couldn’t earn a spot at government-run institutions of secondary education—thereby sentencing them to a life of continued poverty.
A portion of the purchase price from every Sitara Collections item is funneled directly to SVV to sustain its vision of lifting rural Indian children out of poverty. And like ripples in a pond, their successes will affect not only their families and their community, but perhaps reach into unexpected corners to inspire even greater actions."
