fabulous friday!

You know I’m crazy about ExVoto’s Vintage jewelry designs.  I’ve written about them more than once and each time have seriously wanted one of their necklaces!


They have countless one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, so I’ve been patiently waiting for the right one to come along.  The gals at ExVoto Vintage helped me out and started on a hunt for a unique vintage sterling silver locket for my necklace.  Over the summer they found the perfect one.  They had it hand-engraved, which in and of itself is beautiful.  As soon as this beauty arrived in the petite box garnished with their signature red crest, I carefully unwrapped it, and popped it right on.  That July day I was sporting my favorite men’s shirt which is not exactly fall-ish, sorry!

It was love at first sight.  Since I wear mostly creams, whites and cooler tones, I went with their silver classic necklace.  I also love wearing this with all black and then piling on pearls for drama.  This locket happened to come with four frames inside – perfect number for my brood : )


Why yes.  Today we’re giving away one of the newest ExVoto pieces – the Messenger necklace, valued at $129!

This necklace has an envelope pendant with a “letter” inside that says “I love you.”  Custom engraving is available for the backside of the “letter” which fits inside the envelope locket.  For example: a monogram, a date, a scripture reference, or even “marry me.”  Brilliant way to propose, gentlemen.

This is clearly the perfect staple for any wardrobe.  Love, love, love it.


The winner gets to choose between the gold Messenger necklace with pearl stones here or amethyst stones right over here.


A peek at some of their Fall collection to get you inspired…

Lusting over this clutch tricked out with tassel fabulousness.  I could seriously deal with this in my life.

Another newbie, the Sterling Classic with Blackforest Metal. Yum.


Bracelets anyone?  They have a to die for collection using leather, pearls, gold, glass and unusual charms.  I’m intrigued with their wrapped leather in chocolate.



We’ve made this one simple.  Just take your pick:  follow ExVoto Vintage on either pinterest, Twitter or instagram at exvotovintage.  If you do all THREE, your entry will count twice!  Also tell us which jewelry tones you tend to wear – warm (gold tones) or cool (silvers).

Happy Friday, friends!!

  1. love the site.
    love the vintage jewelry.
    (LOVE the tassel clutch!)
    wear cool tones…or whatever I grab first.
    would love to win!

  2. Serena says:

    I have been drooling over all Ex-Voto since the last time you mentioned it! I love both tones and enjoy mixing them up, but tend to lean more towards the cooler silver tones. I have been following them on FB since your last post and am now following via Twitter.

  3. Kate says:

    Done, done, and done! Omgosh, any of these pieces would be a treasure! Timeless. I prefer warm tones but somehow I usually end up wearing cooler tone accessories, how does that happen? Thank you!

  4. Nicole says:

    I have the Blackforest medal necklace and LOVE it! I learned that the creator of Ex Voto, Elizabeth, came across the original medal in Scotland, which is my husband’s country of heritage. I have three sons, so one day far in the future I dream of gifting it to a lovely daughter-in-law. For now, I want to wear it daily because it is just so beautiful. It always reminds me to keep praying for the ladies that will come into my boys’ lives… :)

  5. pve says:

    I find myself wearing more gold. I do love both and mixing metals.
    Loving that classy clutch.

  6. Rachel says:

    Have a good weekend,

  20. I forgot to add that I followed all 3 social media venues. You can delete this comment if you wish.

  21. Jessica J says:

    What a beautiful line of jewelry! I’m now following them on Pinterest. My favorite pieces are all over the board between warm and cool tones, but I think that cool tones are easier to coordinate with. Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway. Keeping my fingers crossed that I win this one!

  22. Catherine S says:

    This jewelry is so beautiful…I am following on Pinterest. I am mostly a cool tones girl but I am lovng the gold now too. Plus, I am a sucker for pearls. I am dying for your locket. It is so beautiful!

  23. Bethany says:

    I love Pearls with everything!

  24. Mary T. (gr81stm8) says:

    Follower on Instagram

    This jewelry is sooo me! There’s something glamorous about vintage. We will be traveling from Texas up to Boston Children’s Hospital this winter for our daughter and I would love to wear it around! I could see any piece paired with a wool coat and boots.

    Gold is my new standard!

  25. Jill says:

    I did two of them – don’t have a twitter acct. And I love gold tones! :)

  26. Christina says:

    Please email me with information re: the hounds tooth suit you have posted on the bodiless manican. *wink

    I love it and am seriously hoping that is not just a clearer shot of Jackie-O’s campaign dress, but a newer version. With that said, my sisters always tell me I dress 15+ years older than my age and to “grow up and dress my age!” An oxymoron? Anyhoo, if that is a newer dress available for purchase by a 37 year old wife/mother to seven would you repeat my sisters’ advice or would you tell me to go for it? Be honest. The suite is stunning and I am okay if I need to wait a few more decades to don it.

    Aaaannnnnd one last question, if this elderly dressing mother were advised to purchase it, can you recommend other options for jewelry as I have no dark pearls. (Actually, I have grey-ish pearls encased in silver…somewhat rigid necklace at the base of my neck/wedding jewelry from 15 years ago. Would that work?)

    Ummmm, thanks. LOVE your style and am always so inspired!


  27. Trish says:

    There styles are amazing. I love stainless steel, platinum and pewter.

  28. Posey says:

    Gorgeous jewelry! I followed exvoto on all three. I am a cool tone girl! Thanks

  29. Cyndi B says:

    I have never seen or heard of this line before but boy-oh-boy is it perdy! I am a a lover of the cool tones (silver) however brass is very nice too. I only see silver & gold-plated. I like the messenger necklace – so sweet & fun! Love it!

  30. Andrea says:

    This is my first time hearing of Voto Vintage, so thank you for introducing me! What a beautiful jewellery line. I lean towards gold tones in my accessories these days and love putting piles of them on. Pearls for me please! I’m headed to Birmingham in a couple of weeks and was thinking of a stop in Montgomery as well – now I know I’ll HAVE to go to check out their pieces in person:)

  31. Nancy says:

    Beautiful pieces!!! They are definitely my taste in jewelry. That locket is absolutely stunning!!! I have numerous lockets and am always looking for more.
