♥ I Love Cindy Carol Jewelry ♥
I've always been an avid shopper of Cindy Carol Jewelry since college. Before I started making my own homemade jewelry, I always give away their earrings and bracelets as gifts for my loved ones on Christmas. They are very trendy and affordable. I can get charms for as low as P10. For necklaces, their prices are at P50-P200 ($1-$4).
Unfortunately, since the Glorietta bombing at G2, I'm unable to visit this branch close to my home, I thought the shop closed, but I discovered yesterday they have a small cart near the Glorietta-Landmark entrance. And I couldn't resist these gorgeous finds!
This sparkling crystal earrings cost me P20 ($.21 cents) at the Cindy Carol Cart in Glorietta.
I love the detail and the use of univalve shells in this piece.
As a beachcomber who collects shells for jewelry and design study. I really felt this piece was simply distinct and beautiful! These would look elegant on my ears this summer at the beach or even on a sunday wedding. Cost me another P20 though.

CINDY CAROL COLLECTION started as a hobby and a challenge for Cindy Carol Ponce Sta. Ines, who, while in her senior year in college, was already into making hair ribbons which were sold to her schoolmates.
In 1988, with a capital of only P250,000 from savings, Cindy Carol opened her business, together with some friends who are now owners of Kamiseta and Bayo. In no time at all, she found her way into big department stores.
She now has five (5) stores which are located at Robinson's Galleria, SM Megamall, SM North, Glorietta, and Southmall. Each branch sells accessories, bags and boxes. Her products are a mix of locally assembled (hair accessories, packaging boxes & bags) and export items (boxes and sinamay bags).
