If you’re wondering what Jewelmint is, here’s an overview I did awhile back.
Now this post is mostly for Larie, who declared, “Pictures or it didn’t happen!” So, here you go, Larie! Enjoy!
Yes, that is me sitting atop a Jewelmint box.
I originally purchased the Aurum necklace, which was just as gorgeous as it looked on their website. However, the second I took it out of the box, the chains tangled up, and I foresaw a lot of unnecessary chain detangling if I were to wear it. So back it went, and I sat patiently in wait for something even better to come ambling by.
I have to admit, I wasn’t sure if I would like the Bird Cage Bangle when I first saw it online. But the unique design, plus the fact that I was getting a sweet deal on 24K gold-plated jewelry ($8.99 with the promo code and free shipping), finally sold me.
At some point, I’ll do an outfit post so you can get a feel of what this looks like on, but here’s what the Bird Cage Bangle looks like alone (this shot does not do it justice):
I absolutely love this. It has a nice weight and is extraordinarily well made for the price tag. I don’t think I’ve gotten so many compliments on a piece of jewelry since my dragon ring. I dropped by the mall over the weekend, and a couple of SAs stopped their sales pitches midway to gawk at my bracelet. Not kidding.
Keep in mind that you probably won’t be able to get it for $8.99 right now, but I believe there are lot of 50% off codes floating around for first time users, which would mean $15 with free shipping.
I read some reviews online that said the 2 and 3/8″ opening was too small, so I was initially worried that I would encounter the same issue. My hands and wrists are normal, not tiny, but I was able to slip this on and off no problem. If it does happen to fit tight on you, I’ve heard of people slipping it onto their hands over a plastic bag, so you could always try that.
One last thing I want to address is that their customer service is very accommodating. Don’t expect speedy replies, as I have a feeling they get inundated with mail, but they are definitely helpful. Both times I emailed them, I felt that the person on the other end genuinely wanted to make my Jewelmint experience a positive one.
On a sidenote, if you like the look of the Bird Cage Bangle and want to buy it, the best way to find it is through google, as it may or may not be in your Showroom (depending on the results of your style quiz).
And that about wraps it up! Here is my referral link, if you would like to use it: http://jmnt.me/rgCkPE
