The best gifts to give from Carolyn Pollack are the set from the county courture sterling line, the earrings, ring, and cuff are all going to my mom this holiday season.
I think any of the illusion necklaces would be a great gift! I have so many of them, and each one is so versatile and beautiful. You can wear it long or doubled or with an enhancer. So many enhancers or pendants will "go" with these beads. It can be classic or funky...whatever you're feelin' that day! The pearls give it a polished look. The 36" aqua version J303361 is one of my favs.

In my life, I've loved them all...
I love your native pearls. I have the original ones, all the beads are the same size. You can wear them alone but my favorite way to wear them is in between any 36" necklace, by doubling the 36" necklace and laying them in between,then placing an enhancer over all of them.
I also have the bracelet.
matchy, matchy, is catchy.
Happy 50th to you and thank you for your generosity in the most joyous of seasons!
I enjoy your lovely jewelry and would love to share in the spirit of giving. If I am blessed to be chosen as a winner of your limited edition sterling silver cuff bracelet, I would pay the blessing forward by gifting it to my best friend (and breast cancer survivor) Lidia so that it allows your random act of kindness to reciprocate the true meaning of this holiday season. I would also include a handwritten poem just to let her know that she is a special friend, a phenomenal woman, and someone near and dear to my heart... for she truly is one-of-a-kind and a limited edition... reminiscent of a remarkable woman named Carolyn Pollack and her Sincerely Fabulous jewelry line.
I thank God for all my blessings,
the friendship between you and me.
I’m thankful for my abundance of friends,
my peace of mind, my family.
Blessings come to us far too few
through lessons that we’ve learned.
I’ve been blessed to have a friend like you,
our friendship has been earned.
The richness of our friendship
is more precious to me than gold.
Over time the gold will tarnish
but our friendship will grow old.
As I count my wondrous blessings
through time and time again,
I praise my loving, gracious God;
thank you for my friend.
Thank you and CHEERS to a happy, healthy holiday season!

I have so many that I love -have been collecting for years --that being said - I pick SILVER RODEO for it's versatility and beauty - There is always a piece one can afford and as a gift - it would be fabulous--goes with everything-CP keeps adding to it which makes it even more desirable_ you can't go wrong with this one!!
Happy 50th Birthday, Carolyn! What a special milestone in your life!
As an avid collector of your gorgeous enhancers, I would have to say the gift of an enhancer would be the most versatile gift. They can be worn on beads, pearls, cords, or chains.
The one I have recently added to my collection is the one I'd highly recommend: the Water Lily enhancer. The design elements are so feminine; the choice of colors are spectacular, and the weight and size of the piece is perfect.
I've found I can pair this enhancer with so many of my other pieces. The pairing of colors is endless with this piece! I've worn it with various color combos such as pink and green, pink and yellow, or yellow and green, and all three, depending on what I was wearing in fashion!
I think it would work in any season, but would be most exciting for someone you love to have it to wear come spring after a long, cold winter. Or just to brighten up those winter months of Jan. - Mar. worn over a pretty turtle neck or bulky sweater.

My favorite collection is the Calla Lily collection. I love the blue lace agate pieces. No two stones are alike, but all go together so well. I love the design of the pendant and ring. The way the silver swirls around the stones is beautiful. The ring is very comfortable and I get many compliments. A very happy birthday to you Carolyn and many more. I look forward to your shows and enjoy your presentations and gem information!
As a long time collector of Carolyn Pollack Jewelry I find it difficult to choose just one piece as the most "fabulous" gift, but like the banner announcing the special event and sweepstakes I would have to say that the "Sincerely Fabulous" necklace would make a most perfect gift! Whether you would be giving it to someone as a "first" Carolyn Pollack piece or someone who has been a collector for quite some time you couldn't go wrong! As it comes with its own enhancer you needn't be concerned that the recipient had no other enhancer to wear with it, but a fervent collector would be able to "dress up" any enhancer in her CPJ wardrobe! Also it is so "FABULOUS" as a stand alone piece!
Oh my goodness Miss CP! You sure are gonna make "Fifty Most Fabulous"!!!
Find something you are passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it!
Definitely a cuff, because they are all SOOO stunning and make such an amazing impact, and are so comfortable. Now, which one??? Probably from the Rodeo collection. Though I myself fell in love and started my CP collection with the gemstones (desert before vegetables kind of girl all my life), I think the Rodeo Collection is the right one to gift -- completely universal, completely versatile, classic and right on trend at all times and all events, day or night, casual or dressy. Yes, a Rodeo Cuff, definitely. Happy Birthday Carolyn! Wishes for health and prosperity in your 50th year!! xoxo
I would love to have the Country Couture Sterling Enhancer w/ Leather Cord!! I have a lot of outfits that this would match to perfection!! (I would give it as a gift, but get one for me too!)

The perfect gift...hummmm...let me think....I think the perfect gift from Carolyn's line should be something that could be a "go to" piece...something that you wear often....for me that is anything from the Serenity Collection...time and time again I find that the perfect piece to go with my outfit is the original enhancer from this collection...the channel inlay enhancer with the coral butterfly...I like this piece so much that I bought the all lapis version, too!
Carolyn's charms are the perfect gift. They can be worn alone as small pendants or on the charms holder or charm braclets from her collection. Because they are smaller versions of the enhancers of different collections, they capture their larger versions perfectly. I have given them as gifts and each time the new owner was extrememly happy to receive one. I own several and I am looking forward to purchasing more of these lovely miniatures.
With so many beautiful collections to pick from, it is hard to pick a fabulous gift. I have the elegant affair collection and my friend has often remarked how much she loves it.She loves that it reflects different colors and goes well with many different colors of clothing. So the elegant affair enhancer will make a fabulous gift for her.
J266708 Buttercup sterling and brass cuff is a piece I have had in my wish list for a long time. It is not too overstated and would complement wearing either silver or gold, or both together. It is not bulky looking either. The yellow of the stone and the brass are uplifting as well as the thought of the sunny colors of the buttercup. It brings me back to my childhood days spent with my friend, Sharon, who I have known since I was four years old (that is 61 years! ago we met). We spent days picking wildflowers on the hill at the end of the street we lived on, and it was also a hill that kids would slide down on during the winter. Thankfully, the street was a dead end. I would give this bracelet to my friend, Sharon, and would love a matching one for me to always remember our great times growing up.
I LOVE YOUR COLLECTION OF JEWELRY. I HAVE MANY PIECES. THE MOST RECENT BEING
THE CHANGING SEASONS AUTUMN CUFF. NOW MY SET IS COMPLETE.
WHEN I WEAR YOUR JEWELRY I FEEL SPECIAL. THE WORKMANSHIP IS EXCELLENT AND VERY EXPENSIVE LOOKING.
WE ARE TRULY BLESSED TO HAVE A DESIGNER SUCH AS YOU! THANKS A MILLION!
Carolyn, I believe that a lovely way to start a collection would be with stack rings. I am especially fond of J272062 Promenade Gemstone Sterling stack rings and these rings represent the spirit of Southwestern jewelry. You are able to mix and match stack rings, wear them on both hands and would make a beautiful gift for a Southwestern jewelry lover.
I think the perfect gift would be a textured link chain with a charm suitable for the receiver! It's a beautiful piece, it's timeless, and can be worn alone. With all the wonderful enhancers to choose from, others would have no problems choosing future gifts.

Happy Birthday Carolyn Love! Love! Love! all your jewelry and I have serveral pieces of it. I love it all. I have no special pieces cause they are all special to me. You have the best deals and the best pieces of Southwestern jewelry I also have a birthday in November but I've done past 50. Love you
I have so many collections that I enjoy myself, and I have given Carolyn Pollock's jewelry as gifts. I believe that an awesome gift would be the charm bracelet. My reason being is a person is able to wear a piece of each collection, enjoying the grandeur of Carolyn's gift of design and the wonderful workmanship that is utilized in her jewelry making. When I look at my charm bracelet, I myself am able to enjoy it just by looking at my wrist. If this was gifted to a loved one, they could not only look at their wrist and see the wonderful gift, but they would think of you as they wore it. A charm bracelet also allows a person to have future gifts made available to give more charms to build a beautiful bracelet that a receiver would be thrilled with receiving.
Thank you, Wanda Kiehl.
I have to say ANYTHING from Carolyn's jewelry collections would be an added treat to any gal's wardrobe!! However, for me, an additional charm would be FAB as I have the charm bracelet.
Loving the southwest and just having returned from New Mexico (my home away from home) I think a Charoite charm would enhance the others immensely!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that color !!!!
I would recommend a native pearl necklace. The current edition is called 'stamped bead,' J139939. The beads don't limit the recipient to southwestern designs, the 22" length should work for everyone, and it's an affordable gift.
If you want to go all-out, there are coordinating items, earrings (J89803) and a coil bracelet (J159192).
Happy Birthday, Carolyn!

There is no piece of Carolyn Pollack jewelry that would make an inappropriate gift. The stones are amazing, the silverwork is done well, and most pieces can go with many different styles. You can dress her jewelry up or down and it always looks well. What I find most interesting is that everyone notices Carolyn Pollacks jewelry when you wear it and I have received many complements on both the pendants and charms I wear and that I have given for gifts. My first Carolyn Pollack pendant and necklace was given to be my my dear friend of forty years, so I treasure it for many reasons and will cherish it always.
Happy Birthday Carolyn!! I hope to be there to celebrate with you and many of our CP Sisters!!
I'm finding it sooooo difficult to choose just one piece...but when I think of what I wear most often I would say it is my Pebble Beach Collection...and I have to add I have BOTH enhancers and necklaces so I find myself switching back and forth between them. I love that the neutral colors work well with so many of my outfits...and that many of my other CP pieces blend in with this collection as well to give it a different twist with each wearing.
Thank you again for desigining such beatiful treasures...and I'm really hoping to have the opportunity to meet you and Bill in February!! I find it hard to believe you are turning Fabulous 50!!!
"I love you just the way you are...."
Happy Birthday Carolyn!
If I were choosing a gift for a treasured friend, I would select the Canyon Road Sterling/Brass Interchangeable Enhancer with the Mixed Metal Link Necklace. Here's why:
Until a few years ago, I was a "gold" girl. People always gave me gold jewelry, and with my coloring it looked great. When my son was a toddler he became interested in rocks and stones. As he grew older, we gave him books about them. When he was around 10 he and my husband found a jeweler who sold natural stones set in sterling silver. I received that jewelry for every occasion, with my son saying one time, "Mommy, we got this to give you for OUR anniversary"! I wish I had that on tape! I fell in love with the natural beauty found in the beautiful gems of the earth. Then I found you on QVC. I've received your pieces as gifts ever since, even if my family gives something to me for "rewarding" me for - cooking dinner. (I can always justify an occasion for a new CP piece!).
The Canyon Road enhancer is so versatile, and any one of my friends who likes any color of jewelry would appreciate it. My "gold" friends would love it (and have told me so!), and my "silver" friends would too. They would have fun playing with the different combinations, and when traveling would only have to take this one piece to get many different looks. So that is why I would select this as a most fabulous gift!
I'm a huge fan of all of your beautiful works, and I'm blessed to have my collection, but this one is really one of my favorites!

What fun! I can't resist playing along! Which piece of Carolyn's beautiful artwork wouldn't make a perfect gift? I suggest the silver Rodeo sterling toggle bar necklace. It has great presence, shine, detail, stands alone, and really dresses up a simple black or white shirt (which everyone has!).
