Niki & Lola came on our radar with a bang last year when founders Angie Tingas and Michael Proteau designed several jaw-dropping jewelry pieces for VAWK‘s Spring 2013 runway presentation. It’s been a quick ascent to the top of the Canadian accessories market since then, and the Toronto-based brand has become a regular on the red carpet, in the pages of national fashion magazines, and on our ever-evolving wish list.
If you know Niki & Lola, you’re already a fan, and if you aren’t yet familiar with their wares, you’re about to be, because today’s contest in THE BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY is a $300 shopping spree on nikiandlola.com! Meaning: we’re offering you the chance to get your hands on some new bling, just in time for those holiday shindigs and New Year’s Eve celebrations. Liking the sounds of that? Take a gander at our top picks from the current collections (clockwise from top left):
1. The Daria Cuff ($230) - Hand-cut and hand-shaped flowers with neon swarovski pearls make for the cuff of our dreams. Ethereal doesn’t begin to describe it.
2. The Empire Earrings ($115) - These Art-Deco earrings are a party-ready pair perfect for adding just a touch of drama to your cocktail look.
3. The Saxon Cuff ($110) – This cuff may be simple in design but delivers a punch of fierceness to any outfit.
4. The Regency Ring ($100) - This handmade brass and crystal statement ring is just the right amount of bling for day-to-night.
5. The Florence Cuff ($195) – We love all things bow-adorned and this feminine yet edgy cuff is no exception.
6. The Baby Bullet Ring ($60) – A subtle way to get the “don’t mess with me or else” message across. It doesn’t get fiercer than this.
7. The Femka Cuff ($175) – “All female warrior and not for the weak at heart. For the inner Super Hero Goddess in you,” describes the site. Where do we sign up?
