First Jewelmint Purchase

Hey everyone! I'm excited to share my first Jewelmint purchase. In case you don't know, Jewelmint is a jewelry website that has a $29.99/month membership program. If you don't make a purchase during the first few days of the month, your card will automatically be charged $29.99, which will you give you a credit to the Jewelmint store. The good news is that if you don't want to buy anything that month and you don't want the money charged to your card, you can always "Skip this month," but you have to choose that option between the first and fifth day of each month. I was really hesitant on purchasing from Jewelmint, just because I am so frugal. However, they had a huge Summer Sale which made select items up to 70% off. I figured why not try them out while an item is on sale, that way I can decide for myself whether I think Jewelmint is worth the price in the long run. So let's see what I got!
My order arrived in this cute bubble envelope
The packaging was amazing. My item came in a nice and sturdy box. The inside had a card talking about Jewelmint, and there was this adorable velvet pouch that had a Jewelmint charm on the side. Love the packaging details!!!
I purchased the "Forever Yours" bracelet. It was on sale for $14.99. It has three chains that consists of a gold plated chain, a rose gold plated chain, and a silver plated chain. 
Each chain has its own style. I also love the clasp! It reminds me of a wheel on a ship! This bracelet is so dainty, so feminine, and totally adorable! I don't have anything like this in my collection, and I love how versatile this piece is.

THE BREAKDOWN: I love this bracelet, but I'm glad I only paid $14.99 for it, because I don't think it would've been worth $29.99. On my bracelet there were noticeable glue marks, scratches, and a random gash. I'm not going to return in because I do love it, but I am very disappointed that it wasn't in perfect condition. The real test for me will be if my bracelet lasts the test of time or not. If it ends up tarnishing, that's going to be disappointing. If it does last, that will show me that Jewelmint prices are worth it. No one likes buying jewelry that fades!

Thank you so much for the support!!! 'Til next time!! MUAH
