Sparkling jewelry pieces were originally donned as reflective devices to make after-dark pothole filling a much safer endeavor. Increase your visibility with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of jewelry, accessories, and more at HandPicked. Redeem at four locations in Columbia and Lexington, or at 14 locations across the Carolinas and Georgia.
HandPicked's bauble boutiques brandish original, elegant adornments and sterling-silver jewelry handcrafted by artisans from around the world. HandPicked originals such as the Tiny Twinklers studs ($12) grant wishes for lonely lobes, and bare wrists find themselves encased in the turquoise globes of the For The Nurturing Center bracelet ($32), which pleases its parents by donating a percentage of proceeds to its namesake, a local therapeutic treatment center for child abuse.
After perusing the monogram style guide, initial bearers can man the controls of HandPicked's online monogram sampler to test out custom engravings on a virtual sterling-silver piece. Memorialize absconded acquaintances by engraving their names onto a silver-plated picture frame ($28+), or confuse curious co-workers by carving the initials of your secret, cape-swishing alter ego into a pair of rectangle hand-cut cufflinks ($78). With this deal customers also get a HandPicked preferred customer card, which is good for an additional 10 percent off purchases, free gift wrapping, and free standard monogramming.
