There's nothing that dazzles quite as much as the friends we surround ourselves with. Last month, we celebrated the spirit of friendship with our Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend Contest. Our fans were asked to share a photo of their friends on social media along with a memory, quote or reason why that person makes their life sparkle.

Our fan, Kimmie W., was randomly selected as our grand prize winner on March 2 after posting a photo of her and her best friends in Vegas with the #BGDBesties hashtag. She scored the ultimate prize pack to be shared with her besties, including $1,000 worth of Brian Gavin Diamonds; $300 to Minted; $300 from Rose Nerds; luxe skincare items from Boots Beauty USA; $100 in gift cards to Mostly Chocolate; and a $50 gift card to be spent on wine/champage.


Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend Winner


Kimmie may be our grand prize winner, but we are so thankful for each participant who shared their story of friendship. We were moved by so many stories of fun nights, quirky moments, hardships, heartfelt smiles and meaningful milestones. We rounded up a few of our favorite entries below.


"I love this picture because at the time we all lived in different places; San Diego, Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Connecticut. My Biffles came out for a visit to San Diego where our captain (my fiancé) took us out sailing on the San Diego bay. It was a day filled with so much laughter and love! No matter the distance between us and the time passed, when we get together it's like we've never missed a beat. I'm so excited for all of these ladies to be bridesmaids in my August wedding. I wouldn't be the person I am today without them. I love my #BGDBesties" -@aniamarksetgo


"My best friend Maggie is always there to make great moments even better. She makes me laugh, encourages me, and makes me feel loved. She is a great friend and I'm lucky to know her! She's the girl who was there to hike my dress up in the lady's room on my big day." -@mjhgrams


"My daughter is my bestie. She helped me through my battle with breast cancer. I am now cancer free. Together we help raise funds and awareness so that one day a cure will be found!" -@disneymom917

"These girls are my heroes when life gets tough! Life was meant for good friends and great adventures!" -@ChelleNorthcut
