JewelMint VIP BOX: November 2014 Review

image

For my 6th JewelMint VIP box, November 2014, there were 3 items.  (As always the items were packaged up neatly with a bow!)  The box included the following items, (claimed to be an $80 value):

  1. Rose Laurel Earrings, (I gifted my sister w/ these adorably dainty rose gold ear jacket earrings for Christmas to keep her stylish! They are simple, chic and trendy… she loved them.)
  2. Rose Triad Necklace, (I didn’t like this necklace.  It doesn’t lay on the neck right/ flat, so it looks weird. I had to keep adjusting it. I’m listing this on ebay.)
  3. Jeweled Throne Pendant, (This necklace is not my style, but would look absolutely adorable on my niece, so I’m gifting this to her on her 13th b-day!  It is aqua, pink and glittery… she’ll love it!)

I paid the monthly $29.99 fee for this box (which includes the shipping).  I gifted 2 of the 3 pieces… and didn’t like the Rose necklace.  I wish I liked ALL 3 pieces.

Unfortunately JewelMint just notified me via email that they are discontinuing the VIP Box and that November is the last one… I am SO sad!  Although they didn’t deliver style I loved every time… it was always a great value and whatever I didn’t like would sell on ebay!  JewelMint VIP Box… I will miss you!!

JewelMint VIP Box: October 2014 Review

For my 5th JewelMint VIP box, October 2014, there were 3 items.  (As always the items were packaged up neatly with bow!)  The box included the following items, (claimed to be an $80 value):

  1. Honeycomb Earrings, (These gold-tone ear jacket earrings are a 2 for 1!  They can be worn as studs with just the 3 mini hexagon cluster or with the back jacket, adding 6 mini hexagons for that on-trend style.  They are cute, but don’t fit my style, so I will be listing these on ebay!)
  2. Aquitaine Necklace, (Last month I said I wanted edgier pieces with spikes… and they delivered! YAY!!  I absolutely love this necklace.  The faux pearls add the perfect feminine touch!)
  3. Antionette Shield Pendant, (This pendant is such a strange shape to me… it looks less like a shield and more like an insect!  I don’t want to wear anything that reminds me of a bedazzled bug LOL… I’ll be selling this on ebay very soon!)

I paid the monthly $29.99 fee for this box (which includes the shipping).  I only liked 1 of the 3 pieces… but I REALLY like the spikey pearl necklace.  Obviously I would ultimately like to love ALL 3 pieces… maybe next month…

JewelMint VIP Box: September 2014 Review

For my 4th JewelMint VIP box, September 2014, there were 3 items.  (They always package their items so nicely!)  The box included the following items, (claimed to be an $80 value):

  1. Perforated Pearl Earrings, (I love these on-trend ear jacket earrings!  They can be worn as studs or with the back jacket for added edge.)
  2. Charmed Knight Bracelet, (This bracelet looks like a Christmas-themed jewelry piece.  I don’t like it.)
  3. Regal Crest Necklace, (The statement this necklace makes to me… is that it’s designer is color blind!  Eww… what is with their color combos lately?!)

I paid the monthly $29.99 fee for this box (which includes the shipping).  I only liked 1 of the 3 pieces.  The bracelet & necklace in this month’s box are not very edgy.  I’d like to see some spikes for a change!!

JewelMint VIP Box: August 2014 Review

For my 3rd JewelMint VIP box, August 2014, there were 3 items.  (They always package their items so nicely!)  The box included the following items, (claimed to be worth $80 total):

  1. Tribal Trove Necklace,  (I like the style of this necklace… but I really dislike the color combination.  Gold, brown, lavender, teal, peach and silver… it’s just not appealing to me at all!  I will list this piece on ebay.)
  2. Gem Envy Bracelet,  (I don’t like the style OR color palette of this bracelet.  Sage, lavendar & aqua colored gems with gold-tone metal… Just not my style at all.  I will also list this piece on ebay.)
  3. X Marks The Spot Necklace,  (Now this is my style!  My favorite piece in the box!!  The Gold-tone necklace connects to an ‘X’ adorned with clear crystals.  The necklace drop puts the ‘X’ around the bust line… I actually think the ‘X’ looks better closer to my neck, so I will shorten the chain before I rock it!)

I paid the monthly $29.99 fee for this box (which includes the shipping).  I only liked 1 of the 3 pieces, so I’m not over-the-moon about this month’s box.

JewelMint VIP Box: July 2014 Review

20140723_193530

For  my 2nd JewelMint VIP box, July 2014, there were 4 items!  (They always package their items so nicely!)  The box included the following items, (claimed to be worth $80 total):

20140723_194011

  1. Pink Vita Necklace,  (They say this is a member favorite style in an updated new color… but I’m not crazy about the style or peachy/pink color, so I’ve listed it on ebay.)
  2. Le Petit Bow Earrings,  (Adorable and classic… I like these girly cuties… and surprisingly enough I don’t have a pair like them!)
  3. Desert Hoops,  (These just didn’t excite me at all… If I’m going to wear hoop earrings I like them to be much bigger.  They pair nicely with the Pink Vita Necklace… so I listed them with the necklace on ebay.)
  4. Lock Cuff,  (Now this is my favorite piece in the box!  I am so obsessed with lock & key designed items right now.  An old-style key on one end of the cuff and a key-hole on the other… TOO cute!!)

I paid the monthly $29.99 fee for this box (which includes the shipping).  Even though I only liked 2 of the 4 pieces… I loved this box because I probably would’ve paid $29.99 for the one bracelet LOL.  Plus I will make some money back from my ebay sale!

JewelMint VIP Box: June 2014 Review

20140626_225602

The JewelMint VIP box is $29.99 a month (auto-bills on the 15th of each month), and promises to contain 3 brand new VIP box exclusive pieces, valued at $80.

The box contained the following:

  1. Handpiece  (OMG totally obsessed with this piece!! It is so unique and gorgeous.)
  2. Necklace  (This is a great signature piece that could be worn everyday… It’s very simple, yet edgy with the spike detail.  I like this necklace.)
  3. Bracelet/ arm cuff  (I also like this bracelet/ arm cuff, however… the faux gem tones are a color palette that doesn’t match much in my closet, so i may gift this to someone…. or maybe not… LOL!)

Overall I am extremely pleased with my first VIP box from JewelMint.  All 3 pieces are a great value at $29.99!  Shipping is included in that flat rate & the packaging of the items is nice… between sturdy foam in cute JewelMint black boxes with adorable elastic bows!  Can’t wait for the July 2014 box!!
