JewelMint?

So have you seen the ads on Facebook?  JewelMint is Kate Bosworth's jewelry version of Kim Kardashian's ShoeDazzle...

From the site: "A cool jewelry line by Kate Bosworth and Cher Coulter... The site gauges your style and curates a selection of jewelry for you to choose from. " -InStyle Magazine

Okay - they sent me a survey and I got 60% off so I thought I would try it out. 

P.S. They have NO idea I am blogging about their jewelry.  I got the offer by signing up at the site and not purchasing anything. 


This is the package that arrived

When I opened the package there was this pretty "Minty" box...

When I opened the box...uhhh.

I think this is how it was supposed to look.

A cute little note...

Meh...
So the Metal Mosaic Ring at JewelMint is valued at - uhhh - $109.99.  You can, or could, get it at the site for $29.99.  Of course I got it 60% off that and I conclude - it is no where NEAR worth over $100...

If I saw it at Target on clearance for $8 I would buy it.

I felt pretty much the same about ShoeDazzle.  Non-leather shoes for $30?  I can get leather on clearance at Macy's for less...

So, am I cheap?  Have you tried JewelMint or ShoeDazzle and disagree? 

Tell me.

I Shoedazzle. I think it's a great way to get those stylish shoes for cheap that will only last one season..and since I live where I can wear sandals year round, I LOVE it! Even though they aren't leather, they are pretty comfy!

Interesting business- I am pretty cheap unless I like something quite a bit, and then I'll spend unreasonable amounts of money haha!

Haven't tried it and don't think I will after seeing that :) I think they could have worked a bit harder to get the ring to stay in place in the box. It is all about presentation after all ;)

I'm glad you did this. I'm a magazine junkie and I've been seeing so much press for them. I love big chunky rings and thought I might try them out someday, but I think I'll wait a bit and see if they get better.

I think that pulled that $100 or so out of their butt. Totally worth 60% off the sale price though~
