An American Jewelry Sale for Independence Day

If you like to dazzle in diamonds or shine in pearls, you probably already know that these items are not mined or harvested in the USA.  The same is true of many gems. However, the stone is just the beginning of a piece of jewelry, and you CAN buy dazzling items that are handcrafted by jewelers in the USA.

Disclosure: We’ll get a small commission if you buy through the links in this post: Please do!

Allurez, a jewelry-maker that manufactures in New York, is having a Fourth of July sale on American-made items. Check out some of the beautiful pieces you can buy for a loved one or -why not – yourself! The sale runs through July 5.
