Hey Wait a Minute! Is Hayden Panettiere JewelMint's Next Celebrity Guest Curator???

Photo: Jewelmint


I was laying in bed trying to get some rest for tonight's party (everyone's invited - details here), when it hit me!!! The Hayden Necklace is JewelMint's next Celebrity Guest Curator piece! It totally makes sense...

Well-known for her activism, Hayden Panetieere is the spokeswoman for The Whalesman Foundation ("an oceanic research, conservation, and production organization dedicated to preserving and protecting dolphins, whales, and their ocean habitat."). Think "Save The Whales" except now it's "Save The Whales Again". The Hayden Necklace, well, it looks like a whales tail! Coincidental? I think not. I personally think Hayden Panettiere is a perfect fit!

Here's another look at the details of the Hayden Necklace from JewelMint.com:
"Take to the sea and be seen! Our marine design features a crystal embellished whale fin pendant for a coastal vibe. Hanging on a 20” rolo chain, this ocean wonder boasts pink, blue, and purple crystals. The necklace, with stone detail and a brass casting, looks like it was lost at sea, waiting for you to dive right in and discover this buried treasure."

On a side note, I was also trying to think of other celebrities with the name "Hayden". The only other option I could think of was Hayden Christensen. I mean, Rachel Bilson is a past JewelMint Guest Curator Alumni (Rachel Earrings). She's always being spotted wearing StyleMint shirts and JewelMint jewelry, and does she not just happen to engaged to him? However, Christensen has been linked to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

For those of you who don't remember, Christopher Reeve was most notoriously known for playing Superman back in the day. Reeve joined forces with the American Paralysis Foundation to function as the Christopher Reeve Foundation (dedicated to spinal cord injuries and paralysis) after a horse-riding injury and prior to his passing. Therefore, Christensen's foundation would have been a better fit for something heroic, like say...the Cavalier Pendant? Maybe I'm thinking too much into this, but I think JewelMint should look into it being a future possibility. ;)

But like I was saying, I do think Panettiere is next month's curator! She just has to be! What are your thoughts?

JewelMint Confirms New Releases - Check Them Out Now on JewelMint's Early Access Facebook App!


So it has been confirmed! These early releases were planned as a part of JewelMint's newest Early Access Facebook App (here).


It says these pieces are only available for a limited amount of time! The best part? Since most promo codes expire at the end of the month, they could potentially work for these new releases.

On the other hand, while you know how much I absolutely love, love, love being able to preview new pieces with sneak peeks before the 1st of the month, I'm a little conflicted as to how I feel about the early releases. I'm a bit nostalgic when it comes to having to wait until midnight on the first of each month for the new collections. StyleMint releasing their September shirts early and just about half of JewelMint's September Collection now being available puts a bit of a damper on things - for me anyway.

I love you JewelMint, but this takes away from the anticipation. I was completely smitten with the one early release of the Black Swan Cuff. That was good enough for me, but that's just my opinion.

I'm sure most JM'ers are (most likely) absolutely thrilled about the early releases, are you? What are your thoughts? Too much or not soon enough?

xoxo, Lily

Early September Releases??? Is It True???

Apparently.

I'm not sure if this is an error or if JewelMint is simply having some fun with us, but here's what's going on...

Earlier today, the Midnight Soiree Ring was briefly available for purchase. Then it wasn't. Now it's back again and available to purchase along with these other pieces:

Hayden Necklace
Morning Rain Earrings
Pomander Pendant
Savoy Bracelet

xoxo, Lily

P.S. You can plug in the names with dashes to find the direct links: (i.e. JewelMint.com/Jewelry/insert-name-here).

Are you buying now or waiting until the 1st to see the rest of September's collection?

We've Got Names People!!! Thank You Candace & "Anonymous"!

A super huge thank you to Candace for finding these and also to Anonymous who (in this post here) mentions two new September JewelMint pieces!

These two new names include the Hayden Necklace and Morning Rain Earrings!

And that's all I'm saying.

xoxo, Lily

P.S. Here's a list of what we have so far:

Black Swan Cuff - Available to purchase now! (click here)
Faye Dynasty earrings
Hayden Necklace
Lady Noir Rings
Lost City Necklace
Morning Rain Earrings
Midnight Soirée Ring - Available to purchase now! (click here)
Payal Belle Bracelet
Pomander Pendant
Savoy Bracelet

*UPDATE* Seems as though the Midnight Soiree Ring was only *very* briefly available for purchase which is a total bummer because I had assumed it was another "Early Access" piece. Good thing I checked again before sending out the text notifications to everyone!!! lol As of right now you may try adding it to your cart, but it no longer shows up in check out. I'm assuming those who were able to actually purchase one during (what seems to have been) the glitch, will probably have theirs shipped after the 1st?

New JewelMint September Sneak Peeks - Savoy Bracelet & Midnight Soirée Ring! Thank You Breanne!

 
Photos: JewelMint Poses Facebook App

A super huge thanks to Breanne for sending me a message about two new September Sneak Peeks that can be found on JewelMint's Facebook Poses App! We finally have the names for two pieces we've been talking about for awhile now!

The Savoy Bracelet (as seen in this post here) is still looking absoltely gorgeous!!

The Midnight Soirée Ring (as seen in these post here, here and here) - you know, that "Black" cocktail ring as we've been calling it?? . Well, it's actually olivine green! Too funny, considering I was calling the upcoming green ring in September's Lady Noir Rings black for awhile there as well.

What are your thoughts on these two new September pieces? Which pieces are you looking forward to buying the most?

Recent Changes to JewelMint's Website: What Does This Mean for Past Waitlisted Items?

If you've been on JewelMint's website recently, you may have noticed some new changes to the site! Over the past few days, it seems as though the site has been undergoing updates, feature changes, etc. A few of these changes include updates to the waitlist system, shopping cart, jewelry box, order history, and other slight tweaks throughout.

The most noticeable change thus far seem to have been made to product pages. For example, here's a look back at the Rachel Earrings old product page:

Photos: Jewelmint

As you can see in the photo of the old layout (above), a "SOLD OUT: Add Me To the Waitlist!" link used to be present on certain items. This link option would take you to an external waitlist sign-up page that was previously hosted on a third-party website. This option seemed to have been listed on items that had a guarantee of being re-released in the near future. You can see the last update to this list on my "Waitlist - Sign Up Now" tab located under the Featured Links section in the sidebar. Most of these items still have a major potential of being restocked.

With JewelMint's latest updates, you will notice that ALL sold out pieces now have a pink internal "WAITLIST ME" link.

Here's a look at the (newly updated) Rachel Earrings product page:


Rather than JewelMint supposedly adding a waitlist option only after it has been determined to bring back an item, I believe this new waitlist system has been implemented in order to collect data to see which items have the highest market demand. This could mainly help to determine which items will ultimately be thrown back into reproduction. The biggest drawback to this change is the fact that we can no longer predict which items will be coming back soon.

Despite this, I actually think this new waitlist system is great! The new system is now internal. Meaning we no longer have to sign up on an external web page, nor do we constantly have to input our name and email addresses for each individual piece over and over again (totally exhausting, right?). Moreover, the idea of no longer constantly having to search for items with waitlists seems less stressful.

In addition, I also believe this new system will allow for a higher level of consistency in terms of actually receiving the restock emails. Collecting this data with a simple click of a button within the site potentially gives JewelMint a higher level of control and accessibility to the database itself.

This does, however, raise some questions: What happens to the previous external (third-party) lists many of us used to sign up for restock notification emails? Have these lists been automatically transferred into the new system? Do we have to go back and click the new waitlist buttons for those pieces with the new system?

I'm guessing everyone's best bet is to just go ahead and sign up again on each product page, just to be on the safe side.

If I only had two suggestions for JewelMint (assuming these have yet to be implemented) it would be to: 1) Integrate the old third-party waitlists in with the new so that no one is left out of receiving email notifications, and 2) Please, please, please add some sort of *Coming Soon* notice on the pieces that are guaranteed to be restocked soon - just because we're unbelievably impatient. Just throwing that out there ;)

Oh! There was another thing I wanted to point out...

JewelMint has also increased the purchase quantity on all product pages from 6 to 20. You'll also notice this reflected in a drop down menu within your shopping cart. This feature is especially fabulous for those of us who love to keep an eye out for items that are listed as "Amost Sold Out". Why? Because if there happens to only be 15 items left of one item, the dropdown will typically reflect this number. Thus allowing one to know that it's time to stop thinking about it, and to buy just buy it already! This feature is especially lovely for us adrenaline junkies out there looking for that last minute "Oh my gosh, that was close! I almost missed out on it!" thrill. :)

xoxo, Lily

P.S. Has anyone else noticed that the site now seems to be less glitchy than before? To me, it seems as if the site is much smoother and faster right now! Yay!

Sunday, August 28, 2011 - The Weekly JewelMint Exchange: Buy, Sell, Trade!

 Photo: Jewelmint

Ready, set, exchange! This is a weekly Sunday night post for those looking to buy, sell, or trade JewelMint! 

Is there a  piece you missed out on? A piece that just didn't work out for you that needs a new loving home? Or, a piece you're willing to trade for something else?

The Weekly JewelMint Exchange is a *weekly* post that will post every Sunday evening at 7pm PST for you to post JewelMint items you are looking to buy, sell or trade across the board. Make sure to check back each week for new user listings! Or, take a look back through the weekly trade archives here to see recent listings you may have missed.

Here's how it works:

Happy trading!

Get JewelMint's (Sold Out) Lunar Blue Necklace for Free: Exclusive JewelMint Gift with StyleMint Purchase!

Photos: StyleMint

I am soooo totally loving this deal!!! For the first time (EVER), JewelMint and StyleMint have combined a brand new "buy one, get one" offer - purchase any of the shirts shown and get a free JewelMint piece that matches (expires 8/29)! Not only that, but the 10% off code is also applicable.

Here's the rundown of StyleMint's four different options:
  • Buy the Abbot Kinney in Cabernet and get JewelMint's New Heights Bracelet Free
  • Buy the Michigan in Heather Charcoal and get JewelMint's Paradise Cove Necklace Free
  • Buy the "Life is a Mountain Not a Beach" and get JewelMint's Lunar Blue Necklace Free 
  • Buy the Sunset in Teal Stripe and get JewelMint's Bossa Nova Earrings Free

In addition, get 10% off your purchase using Promo Code: JEWEL10

I'm assuming that these specials are strictly limited to the colors shown in the email? This would obviously make sense being that the paired JewelMint pieces have been pre-styled to match, but it's not totally 100% clear. Still an awesome deal though!

My personal pick? The "Life is a Mountain Not a Beach" T with the Lunar Blue!! Why? First of all, I'm a fan of StyleMint's graphic Ts. Also, the Lunar Blue Necklace is totally sold out on JewelMint.com and has been for awhile now.

I'm curious if this means that JewelMint will be restocking the Lunar Blue Necklace here soon?

Will you be picking up any of today's deals from StyleMint & JewelMint??? If so, which ones?

xoxo, Lily

JewelMint Mail: Sunday Special: $7 Off + a Free Gift from JewelMint! Thank You Kathryn!

Photo: Jewelmint

A super huge thank you to Kathryn for sending me a message regarding JewelMint's latest email offer which happens to be seriously amazing!! Here's the breakdown of this morning's deal:

For the next 24 hours (first 500 customers only): Buy any one JewelMint piece of your choice for $7 off + one free JewelMint piece (of JewelMint's choice) using Promo Code: GIFT7

The free piece will include one of the following:
  • Scarab Ring
  • Cavalier Crest Pendant
  • Bella Flora Earrings
  • Pin Up Necklace
  • On the Fringe Earrings
  • Tailor-Made Earrings

I'm very curious as to how JewelMint will know which size Scarab Ring to send to those who are chosen to receive it? Will it be based off of past purchases? Or, is the Scarab automatically chosen to be sent with another ring order in the same size? Interesting...

Also, do you think this promo will serve as a replacement for this month's "sets"?

More Details About The Newly Released Black Swan Cuff & Perfect Scallops!

Photo & Video: Jewelmint

Sometimes it's a good thing to read the fine print, eh? Here I was super excited thinking we could use the Facebook Friday Deal until I found that it didn't work. I mean, in the midst of all the hype and excitement who has time to read any fine print right? lol

Well, yeah, as you can see above the print states "Free Shipping, Limit 1 per customer. Does not count towards September monthly member purchase. Not valid with any other offer. Discount codes may not be used."

This is a first for sure, and I'm assuming it is due to the high exclusivity of this piece! It says only 400 have been released. In terms of marketing strategies, it seems as if a limited amount has been released to potentially sell out prior to Sept. 1st, which seems as if it will be restocked again at that time if it does in fact sell out beforehand.

I will tell you what though, I'm pretty sure most of us are not willing to find out just how quick this will sell out prior to September without securing one for ourselves first! This scalloped and textured hematite beauty is perfection, and I could totally see this early release quickly selling out.

I also have the perfect scalloped skirt in mind that would look so amazing paired with the Black Swan! While this is more of a literal styling interpretation, I've had my eye on this style for awhile now, and I finally have the perfect excuse. This skirt is only $19.80 at Forever21 (top). Unfortunately , I had waited too long to purchase the now sold-out ASOS dress (bottom), as this would have been my first choice!



In addition, here is more information about JewelMint's lovely Black Swan Cuff:

"Rule the animal kingdom in this feathered cuff! Created for the wild at heart, the 1” wide armband features plume texture for added dimension. Slate colored hematite plating gives this piece a fierce finish. Spark your next high impact ensemble with our sensational swan design and soar above the rest."


xoxo, Lily

Did you purchase JewelMint's Black Swan today regardless of the "discount codes may not be used" terms?


*UPDATE*
I am now being told that the Facebook Friday codes have reportedly been working for some members for this cuff. Did the codes work for you?

Hey Payal! We've Seen You Before!

I was looking back at a photo Cher Coulter posted on Twitter that has also been recently referenced in this post here and here.

Taking a closer look, does this not look like the Payal Belle Bracelet on the model's wrist?? I think so!!! :)

Updated List of September Pieces! Thank You Janine!

A super huge "Thank you!" to Janine for sending an email with a current list of uncovered September pieces. The latest to be added to the list is the Payal Belle Bracelet. Here's the current list so far:

Faye Dynasty Earrings
Lady Noir Rings
Lost City Necklace
Payal Belle Bracelet
Pomander Pendant

There's a possible extra September piece that I know of, but I can't share it just yet as it hasn't completely been confirmed.

We're also still on the lookout for the names of this bracelet, this ring, this ring, this necklace that are believed to be upcoming September pieces.

I'm also completely surprised by the Lady Noir Rings!! I was totally expecting those black rings that have been circulating around (as seen here and here) to be a part of the set. Turns out, I was wayyyyyyyy off! Which means, the black rings we've seen are still possible September pieces!!

Time For More JewelMint Sneak Peeks! Thanks Rachel!

A super huge thanks to Rachel for the email where she pointing these two sneak peeks out! Apparently, they were posted on JewelMint's Twitter quite awhile back (like over a month and half ago). How they were somehow overlooked is completely beyond me, but still exciting nonetheless!

Here's the first photo of Cher Coulter donning the same sneak peek necklace we saw back in July (in this post here). As you can see, she's layered it with Lovers' Locket, and it matches wonderfully with the newly re-released Mystic Falls Earrings!

Here's a closer (but blurrier) look...


While it was originally thought that this necklace looked to be more eagle-esque, it seems as if it's looking more like an insect-inspired piece to me - such as the Scarab. It's still kind of hard to tell, but what do you think?

Another overlooked piece is one that can be seen on JewelMint model, Yulia....


Here's a closer look at the ring itself...


Gosh, there seems to be quite a few black-themed cocktail rings coming out soon such as the Lady Noir Set (as seen here and here). This couldn't be a possible third ring in the upcoming September Lady Noir Set, could it? Hmmm, that would seem almost too good to be true. Guess we'll see which pieces are actually included!

Upon seeing this new photo, I just knew I've seen this ring before!! In fact, it's the same exact ring that was mentioned back on August 12th (in this post here). Look familiar?  Click on the photo to get a closer look at the ring on the model's index finger! You can also see some pretty nifty looking bracelets, and some very recognizable necklaces we've seen circulating around lately within the last few sneak peeks. However, I also wanted to point out the pendant that looks like a moon! That's a new one! :)


As for the actual release months for both pieces, it's basically just a game of wait and see. I'm so looking forward to all of them! Come on September, get here fast!

P.S. As always, you can find my constantly updated list of JewelMint Sneak Peeks on the "Sneak Peeks - Upcoming Pieces & Sketches" link in the upper sidebar!

George Northwood (Hairstylist & Cher Coutler's Good Firend) Sports JewelMint's Tailor Made Earrings on Vouge's Beauty Blog! But Wait... There's More!!!

Cher Recently shared on Facebook how her good friend and hairstylist, George Northwood, totally (and very appropriately) sports the scissor earrings that comes as one of four sets in the Tailor-Made Earrings Set! You can find this photo and post in its entirety on The Vogue Beauty Blog (here).


I wanted to point out something here which has had my interest for awhile now. You see, Cher also shared this photo with everyone on Twitter about two weeks ago of George wearing a couple necklaces and rings (below) along with the caption "Love this ring ever stylish @georgenorthwood".

This may be a long shot, but is it quite possible that jewelry also seen here on George may be of some upcoming pieces from JewelMint?? It's hard to make out the necklaces as one semi-resembles the upcoming Lost City Necklace, but I am in fact loving the spade ring!! Please, oh, please let this be an upcoming piece!

Photo: Jewelmint

As we already know, JewelMint had some major re-releases yesterday. While the Mystic Falls Earrings and Steampunk Earrings were the heavy hitters. The Baltic Gems and Krishna Diamonds (oh, and the Pearl Fleurs we've seen recently, but somehow got overlooked in all the madness) are back as well!!

You can see the Krishna Diamond Earrings both here and here on Mint-Spriation.com. Also, if you haven't signed up on Mint-Spiration.com yet, please do so as I'll be announcing a new giveaway soon centered around the photo gallery! It's free to join, and now it's even easier to register!

On a sad note, there were no sets this morning, but there's still some hope! JewelMint still has the rest of this week and half of next to surprise us. Will it be Friday, JewelMint????

A girl can dream.

Yet, there is always the unimaginable...what if they are holding out on us this month? GASP. I couldn't, just couldn't fathom the thought - monthly sets make our lives complete.

Will There Be Sets Tomorrow??? A Little Trip Down "JewelMint Sets" Memory Lane.

Photo: Jewelmint

Well, well, well. Tomorrow is the second to the last Wednesday in the month of August! We all know what next Wednesday is...August 31st (the last day of August) which means it's party time as I'll be hosting my monthly JewelMint and StyleMint Collection Debut Party from 10:00pm to 12:30am PST here on this blog!! More details will be posted tomorrow! My point also being that I wouldn't expect JewelMint to release sets a day before their September Collection, would they?

So ultimately this begs the question: Will there actually be sets tomorrow?? Well, I'm totally rooting for it!

Let's take a look back down memory lane to see when past sets have been released for previous months, shall we?

-July 2011: Wednesday, July 27th
-June 2011: Wednesday, June 22nd
-May 2011: Wednesday, May 18th
-April: 2011: Friday, April 22nd

In theory, one could ultimately conclude that (if there are sets this month) they could post as early as tomorrow, or possibly even Friday!

We'll have to wait and see, but for those of you signed up for my text notifications...you will definitely be receiving a message regarding the release of any sets as soon as it happens! You can sign up here.

The suspense is killing me!! :)

JewelMint Mail: Enviable Arm Candy + $7 OFF 2 of Our Favorite Bracelets! | Trend Report

Photo: Jewelmint

Here's a rundown of this morning's Trend Report we received from JewelMint!

  • Join in on the "arm parties" craze with JewelMint's New Heights Bracelet. "Mingling friendship bracelets, bungee cord bracelets, and a few mixed metal pieces make for a modern silhouette."
  • JewelMint suggests giving a "memorable keepsake" such as the Love That Binds Bracelet of the For Keeps Bracelet as a fabulous gift for that fabulous friend. 
  • For the next 24 hours get $7 off both bracelets using Promo Code: CNDY7 (Code is also confirmed working for other pieces as well).
  • JewelMint encourages us to check them out on Twitter and on Facebook and includes a few quotes from...Hey! Wait a minute...Kavita, is that you??? Kavita is quoted as saying "I've been exposed to a lot of different styles (and ways to style jewelry) that I didn't know about before." Kavita is a friend of this blog, and I'm assuming that is the Kavita being that her name isn't all that common. K, if you're reading this...let me know if that is indeed you! ;)
  • JewelMint's latest Guest Editor is none other than Refinery29's Editor-in-Chief, Christene Barberich! Her favorite JewelMint pieces include the New Heights Bracelet, World's End Earrings, and the Serpentine Necklace! You'll notice she's sporting the Serpentine with the clasp in front. See more on JewelMint's Style Diary Blog here.
  • JewelMint features a few snapshots uploaded to their Facebook page of their fans showing off their own "arm party" creations! Upload your own photo because "2 lucky winners will get 5 pieces of Free JewelMint."

In addition, I checked out JewlMint's blog featuring Christene Barberich - it's a fun Q&A article and you'll find a very similar photo of Christine as seen in the email. However, I did some digging and found an extra (hidden) photo that for some reason isn't featured in the post, at least not as of this morning. I was absolutely dying to see a close-up of the bracelets she paired with New Heights.

Here it is....

I'm loving that middle bracelet! Apparently they are "vintage bracelets from her grandmother", according to the article. Love.
