Find Of The Month: JewelMint


I honestly can’t remember who found JewelMint first, but let’s just say my sister and I were all kinds of excited to learn that they finally started shipping to Canada in the last few months. Ladies, let me introduce you to jewelery mecca. Gentlemen, let me introduce you to where you’ll be buying gifts from for the next oh, five years of your life.

Here’s the gist of the magic. JewelMint was created by style-savvy actress Kate Bosworth along with her stylist, Cher Coulter. Each month the site launches a new collection of pieces that span a variety of personal styles – from screwhead-embellished sets to delicate wood bead necklaces.


But here’s where things get ultra-cool. Not every girl is going to dig a tribal bangle, and others might have a serious dislike for chunky cocktail rings. So before you start shopping, you fill out a custom Style Profile: ten simple questions that test your gut reactions to everything from style icons and dream designers to preferred nail polish colours and perfect purses.


Once the results of your Style Profile are tabulated, you set up an account for free and presto: every month customized pieces that should match your personal style will appear in your ‘Showroom’, and also help you keep tabs on what’s running low on stock so you can snap up your faves in a flash. And if the fashion-based algorithm doesn’t quite hit your style on the head? You can tell it which pieces in your showroom are completely not your taste – and specify why – and it’ll give you some other options, plus continue building a definitive profile to suit your tastes as time goes on. Now you see where this might get dangerous, right?

Okay, and if that weren’t enough – every piece is given its own showcase. Cher or Kate weigh in the inspiration and styling ideas for every single gem, bauble, and bangle, and photos and videos let you get up close and personal with your favourites before you buy. And on that note? Quite possibly the best thing about JewelMint is the credit-based system. It costs $30 for one credit, and virtually every single piece on the site is one credit – whether it’s a set of three rings or a single spangled necklace.


To make things super easy peasy, you can actually subscribe to JewelMint. At the start of each month you’ll be presented with a new selection of items. If you’re in love, use your base monthly credit and call it a day – a special treat to kick off February, March, or beyond. If you’re not feeling anything, simply hit ‘Skip This Month’ before the 5th and your credit card will remain JewelMint free. Of course, if you’re falling all over yourself on narrowing down the selection, you CAN buy more than a single piece.

Naturally, as a gift-giving blog, I wanted to make sure you could hook people up with JewelMint as a gift. Since I’m writing this post, the obvious answer is – yes! You can buy credits for friends and family – hey guys, no brainer Valentine’s gift – and apply them to their accounts directly. Just…try to stay on top of the collection because these pretty pieces sell FAST.

Now it wouldn’t be a Find of the Month post without a little gifting – beyond introducing you to JewelMint that is. So, I’m going to give one very lucky Canadian Gift Guide reader a chance to let your fashion imagination run free. One of you will get to pick a piece of your choice from JewelMint, as long as it’s in stock when you win! All you gotta do is…

1) Leave a comment below until midnight on February 28th, 2012 and tell me what type of jewellery you (or your spouse) is most drawn to – necklaces? Rings? Bracelets? Earrings? Something else?

2) Entries are limited to one per person / per email address (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around March 1st to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.

3) Entries are limited to Canadians that have reached the age of majority in their province. Quebec is not eligible to participate in this promotion.

4) Bonus Entry Time: All you gotta do is fill out a Style Profile and start up an account. It’s free and doesn’t require you to put in financial information, and literally takes about five seconds. Once you’ve done that, come back here and tell me – what piece was selected as your ‘Top Pick’ in your Showroom? Or, just tell me which piece you’re most hoping to win if you’re selected as the lucky winner this month? Use the specific name of the piece please, so I know you’ve actually perused your showroom!

Love prizes? Check out what else you can win through the Canadian Gift Guide by visiting the Winner’s Circle.

    Oh WHYYYY, This is seriously dangerous waters I’m treading through here….I just splurged on some online shopping the other day. Now I see cute jewelery?! *sighs*

    I would like to think I’m more of a necklace gal but I always end up not wearing a lot of the ones I get (the only one I wear majority of a time is a Christmas present from the bf). So I usually stick with rings. The problem is that it’s so hard to find a ring I like, something cute and simple. And now I have this opportunity…? Be right back, I will go sign up. My bf is going to hate you and me :(

    • simplyrobby says:

      This website is GENIUS. Top Pick that JewelMint had for me? The Lady Luck Rings. Which are exactly the rings I was eying at on your post LOL. Now it’s time for me to shop. You have created a monster.

      • CGG says:

        Oh dear…I figured I might get a few comments like this. Sorry / you’re welcome to introduce you to JewelMint. I’m starting to think their name is based on the fact you’ll WANT to spend a mint there. Happy shopping – and GOOD LUCK in the contest!

  12. Ali says:

    I like necklaces, but NONE of the initially recommended jewelry items after my style profile really interest me that much, partially as I don’t have pierced ears! But I added the Persephone pendant as it would be a great item!

  20. Andrea says:

    Bonus entry – the ‘top pick’ chose the topaz dome ring for me. So not what Id wear as I hate yellow gold – but they got the big ring idea right as I would love to have the Web Lace ring!

  31. I have always been more drawn to rings for the fingers, for some reason, ever since I was a little girl.
    I think it’s because from the first time I tried on a ring, I was smitten at how feminine, pretty and noticable a ring could make on a girl’s finger!
    I would feel extra special wearing a ring or two or three, and still do.

    I love wearing fun or bold rings to add personality to any outfit.

  124. Hi,

    I went through setting up a profile and account on JewelMint, and then when I saw that there was mention about purchasing and items sent to you, to your showroom, each month, I was a bit worried and felt pressured somehow; I didn’t know if this site would always be free or whether there would possibly be a push to order something, or to even keep the account. Something just didn’t feel right. I didn’t want that, so something stopped me from fulfilling it…Possibly because I am not in a position to buy anything, so I didn’t want to commit to it, have anything sent to me, suggested to me, when I knew that I wouldn’t be able to make a purchase in jewelry, especially, in the foreseeable future….

    With this said, may I still tell you what I would like, if I had a wish and could win it, still participating in the Giveaway, please? Please advise, as I have to go back and find the exact name – it’s the bracelet with the red stones. It looks like it had chainlinks. It was a single piece, but displayed on the model with other bracelets. I could not find a name for it. It’s on the display picture for “Match Your Style,” on the main page: http://www.jewelmint.com/ It’s the bracelet on the very bottom, closest to her wrist and hand.

    However, if a specific name is required, I must say that I LOVE the Lady Luck rings, especially the cute little shamrock ring. I would love this to wear on St. Patrick’s Day, seeing that I am from the most Irish City in Canada – Saint John, New Brunswick! :D

    Out of curiousity, has anyone seen any OPALS on JewelMint yet? Opals are my favourite jewels of all – on anything – bracelet, earrings, pendant, ring. Winning anything with real, genuine opals, especially from Australia, would be a dream come true. ;)

    Respectfully,

    Dawn Baldwin

      Hi Dawn. If you read the rules & regs for this post, you would see that JewelMint is indeed free to sign up with. It’s only if you choose to move forward with purchasing items with them that you could see any charges. You have earned a bonus entry into this draw – good luck!

  125. Sabrina Carter says:

    I LOVE EARRINGS! Yes, this would be nice to win :)

  126. Karima Chiali says:
