We are proud to announce our first Giveaway on Cleopatra’s Bling!

The piece we have chosen to give our lucky winner is a vintage bracelet that is very special and we believe will find a good home with one of you. This vintage Afghani agate cuff was made around 30 years ago by the Kuchi Pashtuns, a nomadic people in what is now Afghanistan. It is probably from the Logar region.

What can agate do for you in your life?

Agate’s most noticable properties overall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming. Historically it was placed in water for cooking or drinking to dispel sickness. The Metaphysical and Healing Properties Lore of any specific type of agate depend to some extent on the color of the agate, but all agates have certain things in common.

Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength both and physically mentally.

  1. My favorite stone is labradorite. I am drawn to
    It and have been for over a decade. I never
    Tire of it. The healing properties are cool
    As well. A stone of transformation, Labradorite is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance. It balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Excellent for strengthening intuition-promoting psychic abilities. Powerful in revealing the truth behind illusions, Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities, and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe. It stimulates the imagination and calms an overactive mind, developing enthusiasm and new ideas. It’s so powerful!
    It has helped me balance my energy with the
    Energy I receive from others.

  2. I love the turkish gemstone “turquoise”, it is my favorite because it reminds me of the ocean, my first love, and it is said to attune itself to the characteristics of its owner. I wear my turquoise everyday, and everyday it seems to suit me more and more :’D! This bracelet is stunning and its history and properties make me so excited for this giveaway! It would be an honor to feature your shop and this bracelet on my blog and in my fashion photography portfolio 🙂

  4. There are too many!
    I am a very spiritual person and believe in the healing powers of stones, minerals and the like. I love rose quartz, as well as old faithful Turquoise. Tanzanite is amazing. My husband nicknamed me Gypsy as I am Croatian decent and am attracted to shiny, pretty treasures which is why I’m very fortunate to have a job as a Magazine Style Editor!

    I’m sorry i don’t have instagram…
    Thank you so much for this give away, have a really nice day.

  9. My lady Olivia 🙂 My favourite stone is Opal (I must be feeling patriotic given it’s Australia’a national gemstone). I don’t have any of my own, but I visited the Coober Pedy mine on a camping trip with my family when I was 8 and I’ll never forget the first time I saw the speckled colours glimmering at me. It’s also the birthstone for Libra (which I am on the cusp of with Virgo) and represents qualities like hope, purity, happiness, faithfulness, loyalty and confidence….not bad I would say.
    I’m sure I’ll get something with an opal stone one day.
    That’s all my concours activities complete. May the hat decide the winner!
    Love precious xxx

  15. My favorite stone is turquoise.
    I’ve always been fascinated by this stone without knowing why and I later found out that it actually has healing properties.
    Paired with this Agathe bracelet I would be invisible !

  16. Hello!!
    I’m so happy that we have the chance to participate in this concours 😀 You are great!
    I have so many favourite stones, but one of my favourites are malachite and moonstone. Those two evoke wonderful memories from my childhood, my grandmother is kind of hippie and she always had rings and jewellery made of those stones, that is the reason why I like them so much. I also think that those kind of stones have something magical and make the person who wears them more sophisticated and chic.

  17. hello, I’d want to participate but I have not instagram
    I follow on twitt (marthedu22) and twitt this address !

    my favorite stone is Lapis stone. I find it top ! sorry my English is so bad, I can’t write a long comment ! sorry, I hope I can participate ! thanks a lot !

  18. My favorite stone is garnet. It is my birthstone but that’s not the only reason why I love it. It looks so sophisticated and I always feel a little regal when I wear garnet jewelry! 🙂

    I completed all of the steps above except for intagram because I don’t have an account.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win!!!
