From Refashions to Recolors: JewelMint's New Rachel Emerald Earrings & Topaz Palace Dome Ring!

We've seen the Rachel Earrings make quite a transition over the past couple weeks here. We start from the original Amethyst stone in a gold setting, to a blush and silver setting, and now to an emerald stone in hematite!


JewelMint Rachel Rose Earrings


JewelMint's Original Rachel Earrings

JewelMint's New Rachel Emerald Earrings
Description: Originally curated by actress Rachel Bilson, these sophisticated favorites get a dose of dark magic with a new hematite finish. A multifaceted emerald green stone embraces a timeless glamour that feels every bit modern. Slip on this 1 ¼” pair, and flaunt your feminine power and grace with this daring hue.

I love how the simple changes in color really make these earrings take on a whole new vibe. While I will forever love my original Rachel Earrings in amethyst and gold, my second favorite is definitely emerald.

Click here to find the new Rachel Emerald Earrings on JewelMint.com. 

As for the Topaz Palace Dome Ring, this is one we've been waiting for! The original Rose Palace Dome Ring was nice, but a little too pink for my taste. However, the glow of the new recolored topaz ring is stunning. I also believe the gold-toned ring and the softness of the surrounding gems really makes this ring look expensive.

Take a look...

You'll also notice a difference in the stone itself. The cabochon stone on the Rose Palace Dome Ring is etched, whereas the Topaz Palace Dome Ring's is smooth.

Topaz Palace Dome Ring
Description: Welcome to the new stone age of glitz, glamour, and shine. This opulent gold-plated cocktail ring radiates with a large topaz glass cabochon. Light topaz, topaz, and champagne crystal details give this knockout brilliant finishing touches. Be bejeweled, and make this piece your next show stopping jewelry addition.

Click here to find the Topaz Palace Dome Ring on JewelMint.com.

Check it out in the new video...



Which do you love more? The Rose Palace Dome Ring or the Topaz Palace Dome Ring? The original Rachel Earrings, Rachel Rose Earrings, or the new Rachel Emerald Earrings?

JewelMint Early Releases: Huston Heritage Bracelet, Persephone Pendant, Indian Escape Earrings, Love Lock Pins!

Four pieces from JewelMint's February 2012 collection have arrived early! We've been given a little taste of all styles with less than 24 hours left to go before our February showrooms go live! Here's the rundown:

JewelMint's Love Lock Pins
JewelMint's Indian Escape Earrings

JewelMint's Persephone Pendant

JewelMint's Huston Heritage Bracelet

Of these new four pieces, I have to say that the Persephone Pendant intrigues me the most with the Indian Escape Earrings coming in at a close second.

Also, you'll notice in the video for the Huston Heritage Bracelet another new February piece mentioned called the Lovebird Pin Necklace. Check it out...



Additionally, it looks as though Kate will be featured in another film this month titled "Love Letters". This short will be similar to last month's "The Look" film and has still yet to be released.  However, in the video for the new Love Lock Pins, you can see a handful of new pieces that are assumed to be brand new February Sneak Peeks as well....



I spy a couple of new rings, a pair of earrings, and a new bracelet!


What do you think of JewelMint's new early releases? Will you be purchasing any of the items or will you be waiting to see what else February has in store?

xoxo, Lily

P.S. Starting at 10pm PST tonight, join us for our Valentine's February Collections Party & Giveaway LIVE on JewelsAndMints.com!

Confirmed! JewelMint Selling on eBay!

Photo: eBay

Yep, it's true. Last night I was searching for some older pieces on eBay when I came across a few listings with "Official JewelMint Account" in their tittles. My first thought was: Someone is pretending to be JewelMint on eBay? After clicking on the listing I realized that "yeah, this really has to be JewelMint selling on eBay."

Besides skepticism being a first reaction, I think that this is a great opportunity for non-members to get their hands on some older pieces from JewelMint. For example, the Oyster Earrings are sold-out on JewelMint.com, but are now available (there are 4 left) on JewelMint's official eBay Account.

I contacted JewelMint today to confirm that "JewelMintOfficial" is really JewelMint. It is!

According to the representative I spoke with, this is JewelMint's way of testing out some other options for everyone (including non-members) to snag some of their popular and older pieces.

But is JewelMint selling on eBay tacky?

No way. I mean, not these days. For example...think Drugstore.com or BlueFly.com! Both of these sites plus a handful of other fashion brands sell on eBay now. Why not JewelMint? All their items are a fixed price of $29.99 plus free shipping. I think it may only be looked at as tacky if they go the auction route, which clearly they are not.

Another plus of buying JewelMint on eBay directly from JewelMint's account?

EBay Bucks. It's free to sign up for this cash back program that "lets you earn eBay Bucks on qualifying purchases. You can redeem them when you make future eBay purchases—and continue earning while using your eBay Bucks certificate."

Cash back, an opportunity to purchase JewelMint as a non-member, and a way to snag older, rare, and in some cases, sold out JewelMint pieces? Why not?

Now this also begs the question if this is a replacement for the Exclusive Reserves?

While nothing seems to be set in stone, this seems to be an option or just an extension of the reserves supply. I'm thinking this is way to go! Many retailers offer "last call" merchandise on eBay and it wouldn't bother me at all if JewelMint releases these "reserve" pieces on eBay. While some may beg to differ on the "I've been a JewelMint member longer than you and deserve first dibs" debate, it couldn't bother me less (and I've been a member since almost the beginning of time along with many of you). Whatever JewelMint decides to do, let's hope it remains consistent.

xoxo, Lily

So tell me, if the piece is right, will you be purchasing items on eBay from JewelMint's Official eBay account anytime soon? Is it a good idea or do you think it's tacky? What are your thoughts on the exclusive reserves being offered on eBay? Let's chat about it in the comments section of this post!

JewelMint's Valentine Mystery Bags + $4,000 Rolex Grand Prize!

Photo: JewelMint

Yep, it's the 26th of the month which only means one thing (or in this case 3 things)...JewelMint's Mystery Bag is back, but in an adorable Valentine's Day sort of way.

This month's bag includes 3 of the following items:
  • 1 Best-Selling JewelMint Mystery Piece
  • 1 Sexy Fuchsia Tank Top
  • 1 Lip Stain (Josie Maran) or 1 Face Cream (Weleda)

+ a chance to win a $4,000 Rolex as one awesome Grand Prize!

I purposefully waited on purchasing the buy one, get one free promos this month to see what the mystery bag would bring around the last week of the month. As for this month's Cupid's Kit, you can't beat three items plus a chance to win a Rolex for only $29.99. The fuchsia tank top is very a la Victoria's Secret, but I'm curious as to what size the tank top is as there are no size options for this Cupid's Kit - one size fits all? Also, I'm assuming the mystery piece will not include sized rings as there are also no ring size options either. I am really excited to see the option of the face cream or lip stain as I've received both in a previous Beauty Kit. The face cream is really nice, but the lip stain is awesome!


Click here to find the Cupid's Kit on JewelMint.com.

Will you be purchasing today's Cupid's Kit? For you, a friend, or family?

JewelMint's Midas Ring: Midas Well Wear Two!
















Quite possibly one of my favorite 60's inspired rings, JewelMint's Midas Ring has always been my go-to ring when I'm desperately in need of a fun splash of color. The other day I was going through my jewelry collection, when I found my original Midas ring that I thought I had lost. In the meantime, I had purchased a second as a backup. I was thinking to myself, what the heck am I going to do with two Midas Rings when I realized a few things...

I first noticed that both rings are different in their own different ways. Below you'll notice that one ring's enamel drops are smaller than the other. I tried both on individually and found both have their own unique looks: Reason #1 to keep both. The ring with the smaller drops looks more delicate. The larger drops on the other ring make it more of a statement than the other. Can you tell a difference below?


Also, you wouldn't think that two large statement rings would work well together, but these actually do! Reason #2 to keep both! I was playing around when I realized that both fit comfortably on one finger as a sort of fun stacked armor ring.

Below you can see the two different options I've come up with: first ring on top or second ring on top. I'm thinking I like the look of the first photo better (first ring on top).

First ring on top

Second ring on top

What do you think? Would you wear two Midas Rings together like this?

xoxo, Lily

JewelMint Midnight Soiree Ring + Sealed With Love Necklace = Midnight Soiree Necklace














Here's a combination of two of my favorite JewelMint pieces...Sealed with Love Necklace and the Midnight Soiree Ring. As seen here before, I've even combined the two to make the Midnight Soiree it's own pendant which looks lovely when worn with a winter-white cashmere sweater, leggings or a pair of camel or burgundy cords.

I still have yet to actually use the Sealed with Love as a wax stamp, but it's something I look forward to doing sometime soon as I have a bunch of 'thank you' cards to send out in the near future.

Would you wear the Midnight Soiree as a pendant on a necklace?

xoxo, Lily
