There, I feel like its a step in the right direction...
You are probably wondering exactly what this JewelMint is. Here ya go, straight from JewelMint.
JewelMint is the new and personalized way to shop for designer jewelry! As a member you get access to exclusive jewelry collections designed by actress, Kate Bosworth, and her stylist, Cher Coulter.

Shipping is FREE, returns are hassle free and if you don't find something you love, SKIP THE MONTH within the first five days FOR NO CHARGE. There’s no obligation ever.
Let me just say before I was even contacted by the company, I was on the look for good, fun & affordable jewelry. I just wasn't happy with what I was finding. It wasn't what I was looking for. Plus I am a very visual person. I'm not good at seeing a necklace in a store and being like "oh! that would look good with this!"
I need help.
With JewelMint they take all of the guess work out of it. When you sign up for JewelMint, you get to create your style profile. Basically they ask you a series of questions and you pick which picture best describes your style. After you have answered all of the questions you can view the pieces of jewelry specifically picked for you! When you see what is offered in your 'showroom' there is also an option to see more, so you can add more if what you first see doesn't do it for you.
You can also check out their blog at blog.jewelmint.com. There you can get all kinds of style advice and you can even send them a message with any style question and they will answer it right there on the blog!!
As I was saying, I was contacted by the company and asked to pick out two pieces of jewelry from their site and they write a review about them, so let me get on with it!
Each piece comes in these super cute mint green & black boxes. The boxes themselves are enough to go crazy over. Really. I can see me using these boxes for many different things. Also in the box is a note card with the name of that specific piece as well as a note describing it from Kate & Cher.
For my two pieces I choose to review the Calypso Necklace and the Soulmate Bangle.
I honestly couldn't believe the exceptional quality of the jewelry when I opened the box. I really didn't expect them to both feel so solid. The Calypso Necklace features three resin disks in deep mauve and lilac. I can see myself wearing this with just jeans and a v neck shirt or pairing it with something dressier.
The soulmate bangle is my absolute fave. I have worn this every day since got it. It is two bangles connected, one circle and one heart shaped. I had started reading the JewelMint facebook page before I received these two pieces and I was a little worried because people were saying that the Soulmate was very small and they couldn't wear it. I thought I would be ok but when I first got it out of the box, my heart sank because it REALLY looked small. Its totally fine though, I actually like it the way it is, it has enough slack to move around on my arm but there is no threat of it falling off.
Here is the Calypso on...
Let me just say before I even agreed to do this review I really did my research on this company. I wasn't crazy about the idea that I would get charged every month even if I didn't buy anything. First off even after you sign up, they don't charge you a dime until you make your first purchase. You don't even have to enter your credit card info before that time. Between the first and fifth of each month you get the chance to skip this month and you will not be charged anything.
As a special thank to my readers JewelMint is offering 50% off your first purchase! That's right just use this code JustSayin50 (expires June 1, 2011).
The super addicting part is the fact that things run out and they don't usually come back. Though this past week I was overwhelmed with some past beauties that made a return appearance, I currently have 5 pieces on their way to me. I sort of feel sick about it because next week is a new month!! That means a whole new collection of jewelry will be appearing!
Here is the one piece that I am so upset that I missed. It doesn't look like it will be making any return appearance, usually if an item is you can be added to a wait list.
Be sure to check out the website! Don't forget to use the code JustSayin50 to get your first piece at half off!! Just be sure to click the link above to take advantage of this great deal. Stop back and let me know which piece you choose as well!! Maybe we can 'enable' each other!!
I was given two items from JewelMint for free to review. However, the opinions above are soley my own. They are no way affected by the free items at all.
