A little over a week ago, I got my first Jewelmint order! There are lots of pieces I liked, but only got two to try at first: Metal Mosaic Ring and Miro Bracelet.
What is Jewelmint?
For those of you that are not familiar with Jewelmint, it is an online jewelry boutique/club created by Kate Bosworth and her stylist Cher Coulter. You sign up for it by taking a short "style-quiz" which allows the website to determine what pieces you might like based on your answers (though I don't think it's very accurate, but luckily you are not limited to just the pieces they send you) after which you are emailed 3 selections at the beginning of every month. Like I said, if you don't like the selections in your showroom, you can always click on "Show Me More" and view all the other pieces currently available! Each item is $29.99 with free shipping (they only ship to the US at this time), and after you make your first purchase (the following month) it starts a monthly fee of $29.99 (each month's fee adds one credit to your account, and each credit can be redeemed for one piece of jewelry, so it's like getting prepaid stuff!) BUT there is absolutely no obligation, and you can cancel the monthly charge by clicking on "Skip this month" during the first 5 days of each month. If you choose to skip the monthly fee, you can still purchase something at any time during that month! I know a lot of people get scared by the "monthly fee" part thinking they'll be stuck with it, don't be, but if you are, I suggest you read the FAQ at the bottom of Jewelmint's website, it explains everything. Don't worry, there are is no fine print and you can cancel your membership at any time with a simple phone call (but why would you want to)!
Sounds great! Where do I sign up?
Now, onto the review!

The jewelry comes in beautiful boxes with the Jewelmint signature in the bottom left corner and a ribbon tied in a bow around the box (not pictured), I'm not sure how many color variations the boxes come in, but the bracelet came in the black box, while the ring came in the mint green one.
The bracelet comes in a cute black velvet bag (inside the box, but black on black does not produce clear pictures) with drawstrings and a little silver "jewelmint" charm. On the top flat of the box, there's a little description of the piece.
This is such a fun color blocking inspired bracelet! It's very well made, not heavy, the clasp is secure and it doesn't feel like a cheap plastic "toy". It is 7.5" and fits comfortably on my tiny wrists :) Can't wait to style this!
Metal Mosaic Ring
The ring sits on a piece of velvety cardboard, with the Jewelmint signature in the bottom left corner, and like the bracelet, there is a little description on the upper flap of the box. Beautiful presentation.
This tarnished silver ring is the perfect statement piece, especially when you are going for the "rocker" look. It is chunky while still being comfortable, but even though it claims to be a size 8, it feels smaller and therefore does not fit on my middle fingers (which is how I planned on wearing it, oh well). The surface has small "blocks" of varying heights, and there are 3 ridges going down either side from their respective "blocks", which I think are a nice touch. Absolutely love this piece, and definitely plan on wearing it often!
