When I buy jewelry, I buy pieces that I can wear for both special events and for everyday wear. Sometimes it’s hard to find such jewelry because this bracelet is too clunky for my LBD or this necklace is too glitzy. But jewelry from modestpeach is “not only capable of being worn once or twice, but will [also] become a collection piece that can be worn time and time again.”
This is the mantra designer, buyer and owner of modestpeach jewelry Catherine Cindy Leo upholds with each delicate design. Of Thai and Chinese descent, she grew up watching her father produce lovely sterling silver and gold jewelry for many different stores. With this memory and experience and her travels to Thailand as an inspiration, she established modestpeach jewelry in June 2009.
Her line of jewelry was named after a paint color swatch that stood out to her as “clean, crisp, and somewhat feminine,” a quality that resonates with all of her pieces. Hence, the timeless quality her jewelry has. Although not particularly a wedding jewelry based company, many of her pieces have been sought out by brides and people all over the country as wedding gifts and jewelry.
They have been also featured in wedding magazines, websites, and blogs such as Southern Weddings magazine, Clover and Bee, and Snippet and Ink. The demand for her pieces are due to the fine detail and beautiful work put into each piece. The care Leo artfully puts into her jewelry is evident in the naming of her jewelry. Each bracelet, necklace and ring is given a female name, while earrings are named for special events.
For this week’s giveaway, we have “The Cocktail Party” and “The First Date,” two pairs of exquisite earrings. “The Cocktail Party” has six freshwater black pearls threaded onto the slightest strand of sterling silver, perfect for any cocktail dress. “The First Date” is made of delicate sterling silver hammered into two textured, vermeil circles that dangle over each other, ideal for an evening out on a first, or 21st, date.
Sometimes the best things in life come free. Don’t miss your chance to get your hands on these earrings.
