Belly Charms! (Review/Giveaway)

Like many other young girls, I proudly sport a belly ring. They're cute, comfortable, and don't hurt (much). :) But most of all, it's another one of those temporary additions to your body that most parents wouldn't agree with. I did, however, find a website that has belly rings and other gifts specifically for all of the mothers out there!
Belly Charms is a company that has Maternity and Steel Belly Button Rings, Mother's Bracelets, Pendants, Earrings, and so much more! They have something for every taste. The products are very inspirational and beautifully crafted. Some of their products support Breast Cancer Awareness and Sandi's Fight. So, even if you aren't brave enough to go out there and get that belly pierced, there is still something for you!

For my review, I received three belly rings. Each one offered something a little different and has its own unique style. They are all extremely light weight and comfortable. Plus, they have shorter bars for less of a chance of getting snagged on something.

This first one I chose is the Double Heart Crystal Heart Belly Button Ring in purple. It's 14g surgical steel, which is great for me because I have very sensitive skin. The hearts are absolutely adorable and glitter in the right light. I love wearing this when I go to the pool or beach, just so I can show it off in my bikini. :]


The second one I chose was the Double Gem Belly Button Ring in purple. I think there's a short pattern here, purple is my favorite color. I really like this ring because it's subtle and stylish. It's one of those rings you would show off to your friends if you were telling them about your piercing for the first time. I also love the fact that has a plastic bar so you can wear it regardless of any metal allergies. This also makes it considerably more comfortable. You really don't even feel that it's there.

Last, but certainly not least, is my personal favorite. I love the Four Leaf Clover Double Charm Belly Button Ring in pink. The color is so vibrant and it's so cute with the right outfit/bathing suit. It is somewhat heavier than my previous dangly rings, but it is still very fitting and not uncomfortable in the least. The pink clover is covered by a separate metal outline piece and it can dangle together to look solid, or slightly apart to have a shadow effect. This ring has so much personality and they have it in other colors for whatever look you are trying to achieve.


Overall, my experience with Belly Charms has been outstanding. I love their range of products and how each one of them is made with love for mothers and mothers-to-be. I honestly believe, no matter what you're searching for, that you will find the perfect thing for you or your own mother. This website is wonderful and they have high quality products. I highly recommend it to anyone.
