Marilyn Monroe, AWR And Tejori Team Up In Diamonds Are Your Best Friend Deal

marilyn_monroe.jpgKaushik Pattni is finally having his way with me and Marilyn Monroe.

The top man at family-owned, Dubai-based Tejori jewelers has pursued me for about a year, with an offer I finally couldn’t refuse.

An AWR member himself (I like men who like amazing women), Pattni proposed a delicious deal on Tejori diamonds for AWR members and fans.

I visited the Tejori shop at the Madinat Jumeirah months ago to check out the merchandise — I was dazzled by what I saw, as well as by Pattni’s proposal.

He offered to give me a gorgeous 18-kt gold and diamond pendant and matching earrings set in lustrous PINK (!) natural seashell. It wasn’t for ME exactly, but for a contest I planned to run to encourage visitors to AWR to submit stories and tributes.
Pattni said he would also give AWR fans and members a 50% discount on Tejori diamond jewelry, exclusive discounts on custom made jewelry (the amount of discount depends on the piece…), and free cleaning and polishing of existing pieces. AND he said he would support the charity of AWR’s choice. Wow! How could I resist?

Then nothing happened. Not because of Pattni. Because of me. I got too busy, and the whole thing, contest, discounts, and free cleaning included, got put on indefinite hold. Until now.

When Pattni sent me YET ANOTHER email the other day saying “let’s do this in the lead up to the new year,” well, to be honest, I felt so guilty about not having done more to make it happen before, that I had to try to squeeze it in somehow.

Then I found an amazingly-over-the-top-PINK video of Marilyn Monroe singing Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend, and the deal was sealed. (Although I must say women as chandeliers as candelabras makes my feminist stomach turn…)

So, to recap, here’s the generous Tejori offer for AWR members and fans:

  • 50% off Tejori diamond jewelry
  • Exclusive discounts on custom-made Tejori pieces
  • Free cleaning and polishing of your existing jewelry

PLUS: 10% of the total purchases made by AWR members and fans will be donated to the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (find out more about PCRF here).

All you have to do to qualify for the offers is to identify yourself as an amazingwomenrock.com Facebook fan or registered member when you visit a Tejori shop between now and January 31st, 2010. (See below for Tejori locations and timings in Dubai.)

Oh, and the gorgeous 18-kt gold and diamond pendant and matching earrings set in lustrous pink natural seashell? I’ve decided to give them away in a free draw.

Anyone who is an AWR Facebook fan (click on the fan button on the right) or registered member (click here to register) on January 31st, 2010, will be eligible for the free draw. You don’t have to buy anything, or do anything. And it doesn’t matter where in the world you live.

Just being out there supporting me, and AWR (as Kaushik Pattni has done for the past year), is enough.
