jewelmint: bombshell bracelet

jewelmint is a subscription based website where personally styled jewelry is picked for you each month at $30. this is my first purchase; the bombshell bracelet from december. because i was a first time purchaser, i received my bracelet for 70% off, making it only $8.99!
 for more information, you may visit jewelmint <--here. the basics of what you need to know is that you're charged $30 (once a month *in the beginning) automatically unless you choose to skip the month, you may purchase additional pieces, & discount codes are available. my thoughts & opinions are stated below.

about the bombshell bracelet:

"Indulge your inner bombshell beauty with this bedazzled bracelet. Inspired by Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, our 7 ½” wrist adornment includes an ultra glamorous mix of black acrylic cabochon stones, dazzling crystals, and ball bead detail. This statement piece combines feminine appeal and sizzling style because some like it hot!" - JewelMint

structure & quality:

it seems as if this bracelet would be a bangle type of thing (that's what i thought when i purchased mine). it's actually put together with little O rings at the top & bottom edges. it has a clam shell type of closure that has "jewelmint" engraved on it. each section moves freely so it's not stiff around your wrist. as for quality, i'd probably say it's ALMOST there. why "almost"? well, a while after wearing my bracelet to work, i noticed the closure is turning pink as if it's a cheap piece. nothing has happened to the rest of the bracelet so far (thank god!) but we'll see. the detailing is gorgeous, obviously. i've never had a piece like this.. i love it.

packaging:

jewelmint provides every piece they sell in these minty green boxes that open up like a clam shell with a magnetic closure. the box is wrapped with a removable (& reusable) bow. not only that but inside the box is a small black, velvet drawstring pouch with a small charm that also has the logo on it. pretty much anything that's made from them has their name on it. you can tell they REALLY put thought into the packaging... seriously.


final overview:

i really like what i've purchased from jewelmint for my first time. however, if i bought this piece for the full $30, i probably would've thought that it could've been better. it is a clean peice of jewelry & it's gorgeous. the closure turning pink totally threw me off. i was impressed with packaging but i feel like that's where half of the money is going.. it's a very pretty box & a very nice drawstring bag, c'mon. some of the things i saw on the website didn't look price worthy, you really have to choose wisely, unless you're into anything literally. i also wish they wouldn't show you the jewelry based off of their personality test (taken when you sign up). i've seen some things from other people that are sooo nice but aren't featured in my showroom. so, i'm hoping they'll have the jewelry available under tabs that categorize them by style or something.


stay happy, stay healthy & remember; YOU are beautiful! - em. <3
