I recently discovered that A-list actress Kate Bosworth is branching out, stepping away from the silver screen and towards the silver plated jewelry as she joins forces with celeb stylist Cher Coulter to bring fashion blinganistas the designer jewelry styles they crave slash the designer prices they can't afford, with JewelMint.com.
In short, JewelMint is a members-only subscription jewelry line that delivers a new piece of jewelry every month chosen especially for you. Why wasn't this gem of an idea capitalized on sooner? It's like BMG Music Service or Costo, but with pretty accessories.
Here's how it works: You start by taking a fun style quiz pointing out your go-to fashion icons, fav nail colors, style mags, etc. (Based on my quiz I "dress to impress". Right on.) Next, you step into your personal jewelry showroom to check out styles chosen based on your unique personality. Then you shop and save on your favorite trinkets and treasures.
I have to say, they nailed my jewelry style right down to the Farrah Fawcett inspired lariat. I'm also blue crushing on the soft brushed gold plated Sweetheart Ring that houses a perfect heart accented with tiny clear crystals. I'm also given style tips on what outfits to pair it with (As if I need tips. Do you know who I am?).
Membership is $30 a month, which isn't much in exchange for access to the hottest designer jewelry trends, not to mention saving up to 70% below retail value with most $100 pieces featured at $29.99.
p.s. If you corral a bunch of your bling lovin' girlfriends you'll score free jewelry, earning a JewelMint credit each time a gal pal you refer makes their first purchase.
Just like with our wardrobes, sometimes we find ourselves stuck in a ring/earring rut, wearing the same signature pieces day in and day out. In a way, JewelMint forces you to treat yourself, only without the upscale jewelry store guilt.
So if you are a lover of innovative baubles, beads and all things icy, join the Kate club. It's a great way to step outside of the jewelry box.
