Jewelmint jewelry haul and review!

I honestly don't think I've ever been so excited about jewelry before! I'm not sure why all of a sudden I became so obsessed with Jewelmint, but all of my favorite things are of some sort of obsessive nature so it's totally normal, right? I've always been a big necklace person, but I'm trying really hard to get into bracelets as well. So I picked out a necklace, bracelet and a pair of earrings. I've had them for about a week now and have worn them all multiple times. I can honestly say they are all of great quality and seem really sturdy. Here's what I think. . .
The Encore Necklaces I was the most excited about. I have a weird obsession with going to Coachella some year soon and I saw pictures of Kate Bosworth wearing these necklaces at the festival so naturally I had to have them. They are amazing I have to say. I love the coral tassel and the gold chain tassel even more, but I do have a problem with this necklace. The chain tassel isn't secured down to the necklace so every time I wear it the knot comes undone more and more. It's to the point where I'm losing individual chains because the knot is coming undone. I've emailed customer care about it and am hoping to exchange it for a new one as I haven't heard of anyone else having this problem with the necklace. This necklace is probably the least sturdy one, but only because it's supposed to be. The necklace is made out of wrapped thread almost like a friendship bracelet. These necklaces are still available and you can see the professional photos here.
This is the For Keeps bracelet and this one is my favorite piece I have right now. I read on the website that the colored rows were metal and I really was unsure of how that was going to be put together. They are long metal beads with a hole on each end where the thread goes through. I love that this bracelet looks like a homemade friendship bracelet but when you get up close it's a lot more substantial than you think. The colors they chose are perfect as well. The blue shades and orange together make it summery, but some of the blues and the gray are dark enough that it will work all year round. The gold beads dress it up as well which I love. The only bad thing I can say about this bracelet is that one of my gold beads was poured funny and it has a little bit extra on one end like a seam. . .if that makes sense. It's nothing I would send it back for though and I don't even really mind it. This bracelet is also still available. Check it out here.
I wasn't wearing the Sea Breeze Earrings today so I just took a flat picture of them. Excuse my leg and hair, I used the Macbook to take the photo so I was trying to see if it was even in the shot. I've never worn dangly earrings but to fancy events before. Partly because of the ease of studs, partly because different jobs I've had won't allow them, partly because they sometimes just annoy me. I thought these would be light enough for my first casual pair though and I do really love them. I probably should have taken a photo with them on anyway, but they're super long, like past my shoulder. I've wanted feather extensions all summer but can't have those at work either so I thought maybe I would fake it with earrings. Kind of like how Aria in Pretty Little Liars wears one statement earring, usually of feathers. So that was my inspiration for these, and they really just make me want to commandeer a boat and go sailing or something. Probably a bad idea. These earrings sadly aren't available anymore, but if you like them Jewelmint has re-stocks pretty often so check back!

These are 100% my own opinions and I paid for these items with my own money. Jewelmint is not giving me anything for this review.


  1. I love all of those pieces, but my favorite has to be those cute earings! All of those pieces seem kind of boho-chic and perfect for summer!
