This contest is now officially closed and...
 
WE HAVE TWO WINNERS!
 
Brittney Sword, New London, Ohio
 
You now have three days(72 hours) to claim your choice of prize by replying to the email I've sent you. On the Member's Only Forum's contest thread, a new winner has also been announced. Clairebear74, was chosen as a winner there and she also has 72 hours to claim her prize. Good luck to both of you.
 
If you miss this deadline then a new winner(s) will be announced.
~ Lisa

You voted in the poll and you’ve made yourselves clear. Clear as mud, actually!  The contest finished with the Stella blue enamel and diamonds pendant necklace and the Stella diamond rim pendant necklace in pretty much a dead tie.
 
What to do?  Well, I really felt I had no choice, so I got one of each, and this contest will be held in two places simultaneously.  But before I go into that, let’s review what you’ve decided on for the prizes.
 
Tiffany CircleDayBreakSymbols 02The first Circle Daybreak Symbol, which started out ahead, but gradually lost ground to the blue enamel kicker is the Stella diamond rim.  Patterned after the gold eight-pronged stars featured on the Basilica San Marco in Venice, the pendant is 18k gold with round brilliant diamonds.  It comes on a 16" chain. The carat total weight of the diamonds is .08. It was designed by the brilliant Tiffany & Co. artist Ms. Paloma Picasso.  It costs $1,950.00.
 
You can easily imagine this as a Circle Daybreak Symbol, as it is a star-sun inside a circle—a sort of visual pun on Circle Daybreak.

 
Tiffany CircleDayBreakSymbols 01 The second Circle Daybreak Symbol, which gained popularity steadily as the poll went on, is also patterned after the gold eight-pronged stars featured on the Basilica San Marco in Venice. Its pendant is 18k gold with blue enamel finish and round brilliant diamonds. (These form the star shape.)  It also comes on a 16" chain, with a diamond carat total weight of .08. Naturally, this also is an original design  by Ms. Paloma Picasso.  It also costs $1,950.00.
 
This also would make a lovely symbol for Circle Daybreak as it appears to be the sun-star against a dawn sky (representing daybreak in the morning) or against a dark sky (to represent the Night World out of which Circle Daybreak emerged).
 
Now, on to the details of the contest.
 
WHO CAN ENTER?
First, one winner will be picked out of the Forum.  This is another reason for some of you lurkers to come in and introduce yourself, as the Forum numbers are much smaller than the site visitor numbers.  All you need to do is join (no one will ever email you—unless it’s me with the news that you’ve won the contest—and I have no idea of how to sell or spread your email address and wouldn’t do it if I did know!).  All you have to do is sign up and make one little post, like “Me, too!” or “My name is Evangelina Tangerina Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorff.  Howdy!”  That’s all it takes and you, too, can become a fortunate Forum member, and I’ll take it as kindness done to me.  :-)
 
Another winner will be picked from anyone who sends me an email as instructed below.
 
And, yes, I will ship worldwide, and yes, Forum members may also enter in this way.  So if you’re a Forum member you get two chances to win.
 
After saying that I will ship worldwide, I must add that if there are any customs, duties, taxes, etc. resulting from the mailing of your prize, you will be responsible for paying them.  Also: due to the expensive nature of these prizes, there will be no replacement if one or the other goes missing after it’s mailed.
 
HOW LONG WILL THE CONTEST LAST?
It will begin on March 13 and run until May 15.  The day after that the winners will be emailed and have their names posted on the site and in the Forum.  If the original winners do not respond within three days, they will forfeit the prize, and a new drawing will be made.  DO NOT USE MORE THAN ONE EMAIL AND CHECK YOUR ACCOUNT ON MAY 16.
 
HOW TO ENTER
Simply either follow the Administrator’s instructions below in order to address your email entry (one per person, yes?  Yes.) or address an email yourself to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with a subject of CIRCLE DAYBREAK SYMBOL CONTEST.  On the inside of the email, please put your full name and address, and also anything you’d like to say about the prizes or about your favorite L. J. Smith books.  True, it is a random drawing, but there is such a thing as karma in the world. . . .
 
*Again, these prizes are open to all my readers, worldwide, but you are responsible for any customs taxes or duties should your government impose them.
 
WHO GETS TO PICK WHICH NECKLACE THEY WANT FIRST?
The first winner to email back gets to pick the necklace she prefers.  The second to reply gets the other.  (But they’re both really beautiful!)
 
Good luck to everyone in the CIRCLE DAYBREAK SYMBOL CONTEST!

The jewelery for the prizes are always so pretty. I am working my way through your books. ***SPOILER ALERT*** I just finished reading The Vampire Diaries: The Return: Midnight and want to know what happens next, but for now I'm reading the series from the beginning because I just love the story between Elena and Damon. I could hardly see the words because I was crying so much when Damon died. He is definitely my favorite character. I'm glad he is really not dead and can't wait to read what happens next.

Amanda,

Noticed that you've placed your address with your comment. Just so that you and others would know that THIS COMMENT SECTION IS NOT A PLACE WHERE YOU LEAVE YOUR ADDRESS FOR THIS CONTEST. The requested information should be sent via an EMAIL instead. The two winners will receive an email from Lisa herself directly.

Just a heads up, Midnight was the last book Miss Smith wrote in The Vampire Diaries series :cry: the books that came after are not from her.

No, the contest runs until May 15th. The only thing that ended was the poll to decide which necklace would be the prize. The top two were so close that Lisa decided to have both as prizes. Forum members are automatically entered once. Everyone can enter by sending in an email. (That is explained more above.) So Forum members have 2 chances to win. If you haven't joined Forum already, now would be a great time. :-)

I have been reading and re-reading the night world books since I was young and I have yet to get bored with them. Every time I read them again I come across something new that I missed before and I fall more in love with them. As an avid reader (by this I mean I'm reading 3 books at the same time) it is always an immense pleasure to know that when I pick up a nightworld book I will be reading something that is well written, well thought out and always keeps me hoping that I will one day find my own soulmate.

It's safe to say that my eyes dilated at the sight of these lovely necklaces. Here's to hoping for the winning email! But as well, good luck to everyone else. These are two lovely pieces anyone would be glad to wear.

Quoting Brittney:
I just wanted to thank Lj and administrator for this contest and all the other awesome contest they do for us. Also thanks to everyone for congratulating me. I'm so happy and excited to have won this amazing contest!


All the thanks need to go to Lisa since without her there wouldn't be anything for us to be excited about; no books, no website and no contests. Thank you Lisa for providing a sanctuary for us to simply hang out and enjoy each other's company and you. :-) :lol:
