If you read my blog, you know I love Amrita Singh Jewelry.  I’ve written about it many times and gone on shopping quests for it at Loehmann’s, shopping sites and department stores. Her classic Indian styles are some of my favorites.  I have bought earrings, necklaces and beautiful enameled bracelets from her collections.  If you’re not familiar with her work, I want to give you an introduction in time for Mother’s Day gift giving. Amrita’s designs are inspired by Indian art. She draws upon the designs of India and the Mughal dynasty to create artisanal  Indian Jewelry and accessories. This is what gives her pieces a one of a kind look.  Her jewelry is a great way to revitalize or dress up any garment you have in your closet and make it a show stopper.
To celebrate her designs, The Recessionista will be giving away a stunning pair  of Amrita Singh earrings on the blog.  These beautiful  Pearls of Wisdom Greenport  earrings would make a great gift for you or your Mom for mother’s day (tell your husband or partner to enter you to win.)  The earrings are 18k Gold plated earring with faux pearl detailing.  These are made with the finest materials.  
To enter to win, just leave a comment here by April 25th, and let me know where you would wear these stunning earrings to include them in your Mother’s day celebrations.

    These earrings would become an instant heirloom. I would love to lend them to my new sister-in-law to wear at her poolside apres wedding reception. I can imagine our daughters looking back at the photos and wanting to wear them, themselves.

    Since these earrings make me dream big and give me such luxury in a little package I would wear them at the opera, and take my mother in law, who is Japanese to Madame Butterfly. I will feel as stunning as everyone else and these will make me feel as if I do! Okay I might not give them to my mother in law, but I would take her to the Opera!

    Sadly, I won't get to see my mom for Mother's Day. But I would save them for the girl's weekend trip we are planning for a couple months down the line. They're not her style but they are mine and she's happy when I dress/accessorize like an adult! lady_brick at yahoo dot com

    Hi. I accidentally hit on your blog just as I was going to turn off the computer and catch an hour nap before getting ready for work but I had to take a moment to say hello. I just signed up for your newsletter using my email address which is kleimanlaw at aol dot com. I am a fan on facebook and shared about this contest on my facebook which is www, I am also following you on twitter and tweeted about this contest at I also follow your blog. I think I hit all the requirements but I apologize for being so brain dead at the moment. Despite my present state of exhausted delirium, I HAD to email you when I read you are an Amitra Singh fan. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE, oh yeah, LOVE that line of jewelry. To me, each piece has its own meaning. The other jewelry I adore is Satya. You should check it out because after viewing a view of their pieces, you'll be hooked as well. As for these earrings, I was kind of hoping I would win the Furla bag, which I would give to my mom for Mother's Day and then I suppose I would have to keep these earrings for myself should I win the contest. Well, if I'm gonna dream, I may as well dream BIG. Thanks for a great giveaway and please email when you have a chance. Sounds like we have a lot in common. Have a great day!!!!!

    My mother only seems to dress up for gardening & I know she would look beautiful in these while picking the flowers we worked so hard to plant in the Fall together.

    She doesn't purchase jewelry often although she's recently started creating some and her collection consists of heirloom pieces my family brought over from Finland. I know these earrings would match her collection perfectly.

    Email me at danabeeman at gmail dot com if I win & thanks for the oppurtunity. 😉

    Any earrings that come my way actually belong to my mother– I don't wear them, because I can't! So when I find or get earrings I think are grand, I give them straight to her and wear them vicariously. Appropriate for mother's day, I think!:D She could wear them to our favorite sushi shop!
