Exclusive JewelMint Sneak Peek! Sparkle & Shine This Holiday Season!

Photo: JewelMint

It's New Years Eve. Your hair looks gorgeous, your makeup perfectly applied, and your thrilled you're about to spend the evening out in that beautiful dress you've been absolutely dying to finally wear. The night is young and just a few more finishing touches before your on your way. As you reach for your favorite scent in that glamorous little glass bottle, you realize you're ensemble needs a finishing touch - jewelry of course! Your dress is rich in color, so you'll need something with just enough sparkle to perfectly contrast your look...

You layer this stunning piece with two lovely Gatsby Bracelets on one hand, and a cocktail ring such as the Starburst on the other. You finish this classic look with the Forever Audrey Earrings, and you're out the door and on your way to another unforgettable night!

At least this is how I would love to imagine the start of my New Years Eve-ning! It's interesting because when I think back on some of my most memorable nights out, I can always remember the thrill of getting ready for that special event. There's just something so glamorously intimate about the little things that require that impeccable attention to detail - from applying your lipstick to all the endless possibilities that come with choosing the perfect jewelry for the look you are trying to achieve.

To me this bracelet perfectly embodies that feeling of glamour. The combination of silver, black, and crystals begs to be layered with even more crystals and diamonds for that classic, old Hollywood glam look - very à la Audrey Hepburn.

This bracelet is a part of JewelMint's December Collection! Will you be adding it to your jewelry box?

xoxo, Lily

P.S. On a side note, wouldn't this piece also be great as a refashioned JewelMint headband? The thought of the upcoming Savoy and Gatsby Headbands came to mind!

JewelMint's OrnaMint Mystery Bag is Here! Get up to $500 Worth of Surprise JewelMint Pieces - for only $29.99! You Could Win a Kindle Fire!

Photo: JewelMint

JewelMint's original BewitchMint Mystery Bags were (without a doubt) a major hit this past Halloween and for good reason! I mean, who doesn't love a fun surprise shipment with the possibility of some fabulous gifts being inside?

During JewelMint's last mystery promo, I picked up 3 bags of my own. My bags included 2 sets of Pebble Earrings, a Black Swan Cuff, a Gatsby Bracelet, a Silver Zip Bracelet, and another piece I can't quite think of right now off the top of my head. In addition, I received 3 promo codes that were good for $5 off each.

For those of you who were longing for a large JewelMint shipping box containing an AdornMint box but didn't receive one, you have another chance to score one this go around...

JewelMint's newest (and adorably named) OrnaMint Mystery Bag is here! The last mystery bags had up to $300 worth of gifts inside - the new bag? Up to $500 worth of surprises!

Here's a rundown of what JewelMint's New OrnaMint Bag includes:
  • Receive at least 2 (randomly chosen) surprise JewelMint pieces in each bag

Each bag could include any of the following fabulous possibilities:
  • Amazon Kindle Fire ($199 Value)
  • StyleMint Leggings ($29.99 Value)
  • Limited Edition Jewelmint AdornMint Box ($59.98 Value)
  • StyleMint, BeautyMint & ShoeMint Coupons ($10-$30 Value)

No promo code is necessary for this deal. In fact, promo codes may not be used on this purchase. Which is totally fine by me; it's a steal at $29.99! You may purchase as many bags as you like - this deal is completely unlimited. However, only 10,000 bags are available and this deal expires on 11/30 at 11:59pm PST.

Click here to find the OrnaMint Bag on JewelMint.com!

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

JewelMint's Morning Rain Earrings & Necklace - Refashioned by Cheryl S!

Photo: Cheryl S.

A super huge thanks to Cheryl S. for sharing her JewelMint Morning Rain Earrings into a Morning Rain Necklace! You would think that Cheryl may have snipped off the back of the earring, but that's not the case at all! She was able to transform one earring into a necklace, without compromising the original design, making these earrings extra versatile.

To tell you the truth, I think I actually like these earrings more as a necklace! What do you think?

To try this look out, take a chain and secure it with the earring's backing. Voilà, there you have it!

JewelMint Spotted on Hart of Dixie's Lemon Breeland (Jamie King)!



This past week was I was actually able to catch all of my favorite TV shows! Usually I have to DVR all of my favorites in order to watch them late at night or during some downtime on the weekend. However, this past week I was taken out by a terrible flu bug so I pretty much rested and was stuck in front of the TV.

The week prior, I took some time with the family and must have caught something during our family trip. While it was nice to take some time for myself (granted the flu wasn't fun at all), I totally missed out on some major JewelMint news while away.

For starters, I was watching Hart of Dixie this past Wednesday night to find Lemon Breeland, played by the gorgeous Jamie King, wearing JewelMint! It's a little hard to tell if these are the Forever Audrey's or the Very Audrey Earrings. I'm thinking that because her shirt and scarf is yellow these are most likely the Very Audrey's!

While I love Dr. Hart's (Rachel Bilson) style on the show, I'm really starting to appreciate all the adorable Anthro-esque outfits seen on Lemon. She's also really starting to grow on me as a character as well. At first I just couldn't help but not like how rude she was to Dr. Hart, but I think her character does a great job at balancing out the show. ;)

Don't these earrings look stunning on her? Anyone else notice these earrings on Lemon this past week on Hart of Dixie? Who's your favorite character on the show? Do you think Dr. Hart and George will end up together at any point?

JewelMint Mail: Introducing Rachel Bilson's ShoeMint - Only a Few Days Left to Earn Pre Launch Rewards!

Photos: ShoeMint

As we all know, ShoeMint is coming soon!!! If it's anything like StyleMint and BeautyMint, we can most likely expect ShoeMint to fully launch prior to the 1st of December!

I don't know about you guys, but I'm super excited for this specific "Mint" to become a reality. Being fans of Rachel's since the good 'ol days of The OC and even now with her newest show Hart of Dixie, a lot of us couldn't be more excited to see Rachel jump on board the Mint train.

I'm also super curious to see if ShoeMint will be bigger than JewelMint! Is that even possible or imaginable nonetheless? While us women are crazy about our jewelry, don't even get us started on shoes. I'm willing to at least bet that ShoeMint and JewelMint will be top two Mint leaders for BeachMint.

It's also crazy to think that ShoeMint will be the second Mint Brand to launch within the last 30 days - Jessica Simpson's BeautyMint launched at the end of last month. With JewelMint just recently celebrating their one-year anniversary in October, the launch of StyleMint back in June, and these two new verticals within the last month of one another...we can only imagine what will be next!

Actually, we do have a clue or two of what is possibly yet to come, but these projects have yet to be officially announced by BeachMint.

But for now we've got ShoeMint to look forward to along with all the future adorable shoes Rachel, her stylist, and Mr. Madden will have to offer!

ShoeMint's first email (ever!) offers some pretty steep discounts on your first pair just for getting friends to sign-up! Here are the details:

Refer 2+ Friends: Get $25 off your first pair
Refer 10+ Friends: Get $40 Off your first pair
Refer 40+ Friends: Get your first pair for only $1!

So go get referring - I want to say this is the best referral deal from any launch I've seen from the "Mints" thus far!

JewelMint Mail: Back in Stock! 4 All-Time Best Sellers - Get Them While You Can! Thank you Stephanie!

Photo: Jewelmint

A super huge thanks to Stephanie for sending me an email this morning in regards to today's releases!

Well, I guess this confirms the "official" release of the Rosie Necklace and the Knot Without You Set. A few days ago these pieces were briefly released for an hour or two, but the links were pulled down shortly thereafter.

Additionally, today's email announces a  re-release of the Renegade Necklace and three new pieces including the following:

Silver Swan Bracelet

Cleopatra Reborn Earrings

Blanc Bomb Ring

I'm personally in love with the Blanc Bomb Ring, Rosie Necklace, and the new Silver Swan Bracelet!!!

The Knot Without You Set is nice, but I just don't think it's for me. The Cleopatra Reborn Earrings seem more like spring/summer to me, so I'll be passing on those too. I'm all about winter glam jewels right now! :)

Which of these pieces will you be picking up today? Are you impressed with JewelMint's new line of prestige fine jewelry or will you be passing?

Two Pieces from JewelMint's Prestige Line Makes a Brief Debut! Thank you Val!

*UPDATE* This post was scheduled to post on 11/16.

A super huge thanks to Val for sending me an email a few days ago in regards to a brief release of two pieces from JewelMint's highly-anticipated, prestige line of fine jewelry.

Apparently, here is what happened. According to Val, these pieces were made available for purchase for an hour or two before being listed as sold out. These two items included the following:

The Rosie Necklace
The Knot Without You Set

While the links are now showing as "error" pages, we're only left to speculate two things: Either the releases were an accident or these brief releases occurred in limited-quantities to get us even more hyped up!

The question is now, will Jewel be re-releasing these pieces anytime soon? Well, I contacted JewelMint and was told that we should have received an email notification about the Rosie and Knot Without You Set Release a few days ago. I never received an email though. Did any of you receive this email? I was also told by the CS Representative that she thinks they will re-release the items again depending on customer demand.

I'm still left wondering if the release was an accident (hence the pulled links), and if an email ever was sent out to anyone...?

xoxo, Lily

Zoe Saldana is JewelMint's Newest Celebrity Guest Curator!

Photo: Jewelmint

In case you missed it, Zoe Saldana has been named JewelMint's newest Celebirty Guest Curator with the recently re-released, Zoe Bangle. According to the announcement made over on JewelMint's Style Diary Blog, "50% of the proceeds from the Zoe Bangle will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring and empowering men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts around the world, including Iraq and Afghanistan."

Saldana is JewelMint's sixth celebrity guest curator to join forces with the brand in support of charity. Past curators include Rachel Bilson, Jared Eng, Sienna Miller, Emmanuelle Chriqui, and most recently, Camilla Belle.

I'm still curious as to when (or if) Hayden Panettiere will be announced as a future curator for the Hayden Necklace. I'm assuming it is probably either still in the works or is simply scheduled as a future curated piece. The question is more than likely just a matter of when.

For example, the "Zoe" Bangle was originally released back March of this year and had since sold out. While I had originally thought the bracelet may be an homage to Rachel Zoe, it turns out to have been dedicated to Zoe Saldana's cause all along. This announcement came eight months after the bracelet's original release and seems to be the main reason for the bangle's return.

I'm Back and Ready to Talk "Mints"!

Hi again everyone!

It's Wednesday and I'm happy to be back from a busy (extended) weekend. I've been doing some updating to the blogs and then took a break to spend some much-needed time with the family.

As for updates, the archives are still a work in progress, but the Monthly Collections list is pretty much near completion with the exception of the Potion Pendant (lol thanks for the heads up on that one Gwen!). I'm also really happy to have the JewelMint Jabber and the StyleMint StyleTalk Forums up and running! Also, I really hope you guys like the new navigation bar at the top! I was finding it a little tedious to find items located throughout the blogs, so I thought this was not only important, but completely overdue as well.

Also, it's amazing what you can miss in just a short about of time! JewelMint has since announced their latest celebrity guest curator, ideas for an Exclusive Reserve loyalty program, and a handful of new contests! The Daily Holiday Deals (aka JewelMint sets) continue on. Not to mention the brief release of a couple of their Prestige pieces, a few other random re-releases, and their latest release of new Friendship Bracelet.

I have so much to catch up on here so let's get started!

xoxo, Lily

P.S. Thank you to everyone for the emails during my little break in regards to exciting JewelMint news. I was able to keep up with everything going on while I was away. Seriously, a few days away from the Mints felt like an eternity! :)

Need a New Place to Post? The JewelMint Jabber Discussion Forum is Here!


In light of yesterday's discussion boards "take-down" over on Facebook, I received an email from a friend -Hi Avery!- that made me realize that it was time to move forward with the stand-alone discussion forum I've been contemplating for some time.

While Facebook's discussion boards were fabulous, a lot of people are left to wonder where they went. In a nutshell, Facebook has ultimately decided to remove this feature without any future plans of bringing it back.

With this, I remembered a discussion platform I found a few months back that not only provided an ease of use, but was also trustworthy being that anyone can use their other accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, OpenID, Yahoo, AOL, Google, etc. to connect.

While I know it is not the same as JewelMint's Facebook Discussion Board, I'm hoping some of you will find it helpful.

Some of the featured forums include a general discussion board, a styling board, a place to love & gripe, and another trade market where we everyone can buy or sell both JewelMint & non-JewelMint-related items!

Click here to get started or to browse! It's completely free for all to use! See you there! :)

Sunday, November 6, 2011 - The Weekly JewelMint Exchange: Buy, Sell, Trade!

Hey it's not Sunday!!! Nope. I've just been super swamped with things in life that I've allowed the last exchange on the 23rd of October work some overtime. ;)

So without further ado, here's a fresh new trade post for those of you looking to trade, buy, or sell your current pieces. xo, L

P.S. Thanks for the heads up Avery!

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 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:
1. Begin your post with: Looking to sell, looking to trade, or looking to find.
2. List your items (including accurate descriptions, if necessary, such as "new", "used", or "altered").
3. Please don't forget to include an email address for contact.

Happy trading!

xoxo, Lily

The Winner: JewelMint's Savoy Headband vs. Baltic Gem Headband!

Photos: JewelMint

Last week, the battle was on between JewelMint's latest headpieces that will be making a debut soon! There were three pieces to choose from, of which two would make it into final production!

The contenders? The Gatsby Headband, Savoy Headband, and Baltic Gem Headbands.

The Gastby Headband was a shoo-in. Throughout this past week, Gatsby held the lead with hundreds of more votes than either the Savoy or the Baltic Gem.

If you've been watching the contest over on JewelMint's Facebook page, you know just how close the race actually was between the Savoy and Baltic. As of last night, there were less than ten votes separating the two. As of earlier this morning, there were even fewer votes separating second and third place.

As of 1pm PST today, the final votes were displayed.

The top two winners are....
1st Place with 700 votes: JewelMint's Gastby Headband
2nd Place with 336 votes: JewelMint's Savoy Headband

Sorry Baltic...
3rd Place with 332 votes: JewelMint's Baltic Gem Headband


It seriously came down to 4 votes! 4 VOTES! That's craziness. To me, this only means they should just make all three available for us to purchase. ;)

Hopefully the Gatsby and Savoy Headbands will be available prior to the holidays! I'd just love to wear the Gatsby for New Years!

Support The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation: Enter to Win a Humanity Necklace For a Good Cause!

*UPDATE* This giveaway has been extended until Friday, January 13, 2012 at 11:59pm PST. CFF is matching all donations for the holiday season. The winner will be announced on Monday, January 16th! 'Tis the season of giving! Thank you for your support! :)

 

I personally hold a special place in my heart for those affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families.

Recently, my little girl was accidentally misdiagnosed with the disease. Being told that your baby may not live to see their mid-30's is beyond life-changing and extremely heartbreaking. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was there to help us understand what this meant for our daughter and our family at that time.

Upon receiving the news of the mistake, we felt overwhelmed with joy, yet it was overshadowed with heartbreak for those hundreds of parents who receive the same news about their own children each year - those whose pain I shared upon learning such a prognosis about my own daughter on that one day.

Since that very day, I've been so grateful for the second chance my daughter has received at living a full life. However, I've never forgotten the lives of those children and their families that still remain forever changed by the disease. Therefore, I've made it a personal mission of mine to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in any way I can - starting with my own personal donations.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Cystic Fibrosis, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) defines it as "an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide)....About 1,000 new cases of cystic fibrosis are diagnosed each year. More than 70% of patients are diagnosed by age two. More than 45% of the CF patient population is age 18 or older. The predicted median age of survival for a person with CF is in the mid-30s."

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF.org)  is an amazing nonprofit donor-supported organization whose mission is to the "development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease".

You may remember a few weeks back when I took JewelMint's Humanity Bracelet and created a one-of-a-kind Humanity Necklace. On the back of the pendant is a beautiful saying: "To love, to live and to give and give..."

When the thought of creating this necklace came to mind, I really took its meaning to heart...

I am kindly asking you to make a donation (of any amount) to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In turn, I am giving away this meaningful piece to one lucky donor.

Here's how you can help and to enter to win:
1) Make a donation (any amount you wish) to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Please click on the link in the bottom bar below to make a direct and secure donation with Paypal or at CFF.org here.
2) Comment below with your first name and email address.

Ends Wednesday, November 30th, 2011 at 11:59pm PST. The winner will be announced on Friday, December 2nd and will be kindly asked to supply to us their electronic donation receipt with both the donation amount and all personal information blacked out in order to verify participation. The amount of your donation does not increase your likelihood of winning as this blog has no way of tracking the actual figures of the donations made. Winner's comment will be chosen at random using Random.org. This contest is open to all entries including U.S. and International. 

Thank you for your support!
xoxo, Lily

Most recently, Jennifer over at the All That Is Gorgeous Blog recently picked out the Empress Necklace as her winning piece for voting in JewelsAndMints.com's 1st Annual JewelMint Awards.

Her review includes detailed photos of her new Empress, a personal review, and a super thoughtful mention of us in her post here. Check it out to see what she thinks of her brand new piece!
