SG *FASHION FIX* – My Latest Obession – $30 Jewelry from Jewelmint

Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix





With the Great Gatsby Gala only a night away, I thought it only fitting I share with you  the deco-inspired Savoy bracelet I just purchased from Jewelmint, my latest obsession. It resembles  a bracelet made from vintage shoe clips by Lulu Frost for J. Crew I coveted last season for over $100. The Jewelmint version, designed and curated by actress Kate Bosworth and Hollywood stylist Cher Coulter, is only $29.99, along with every other piece in their collection (per month) purchased by Jewelmint members. This customized jewelry club starts off with a style quiz determining if your personal style is more edgy Kate Moss, boho Nicole Ritchie or perhaps vintage tomboy like Alexa Chung.


From there, Jewelmint starts to develop your “showroom” where they feature your suggested pieces each month based on your style. There is no pressure to buy. You’re free to browse. And if you’re in need of inspiration, each piece is accompanied with a video and a tip from Kate or Cher on how to wear it.

I have to admit, I was immediately intrigued the very first time I heard about this. Kate Bosworth may not have had much screen time since she caught a wave into Hollywood in Blue Crush, but she is a constant on the fashion scene and is always noted for her impeccable style. Plus, she even has great taste in men. Hello, Eric Northman.

My only hesitation was whether you would get quality pieces for such a low price. I decieded to take the plunge after seeing Lindsay Fleege, Cynthia Rowley’s Southeast Ambassador and Charleston store manager, wearing the tassled Encore necklaces at the recent Sale Soiree.

Upon receiving each new purchase (and there have been quite a few during my short membership status), I’m always amazed at the beautiful packaging, attention to detail and the value. I could have easily spent double or triple for each.

Two of my favorite Jewelmint purchases

And if $29.99 is feeling a bit steep these days, discount codes abound and are eagerly shared by devoted fans on Facebook, Twitter and even a fan blog dedicated to all things JewelMint. 
Rest assured, Joel can attest to my newfound Jewelmint devotion with the series of mint-colored boxes that keep showing up at our doorstep. Hey, at least the shipping is free.
