The new year isn’t just a good time to make (and break) resolutions. It’s open season for clearance sales. And while most bargain shoppers stock up on holiday staples like wrapping paper, tree skirts and tinsel towers – my kind of hunt involves diamonds. Lots and lots of diamonds.

So let’s give it up for JewelClub, who once again blows everyone out of the water when it comes to online price busting. This week they’re holding their one-time-only New Year’s Vault Clearance sale, which is a glittering collection of all their onesie styles at 85-90% off retail.

For the uninitiated, onesies is merch-speak for styles that have only one piece of inventory left on the shelves. So it’s not the ‘runt of the litter’ product. On the contrary, it could be some of the season’s best styles. There’s just only one left in the coffers so – they slash and burn the price to make room for new stash.

And let’s not forget – with jewelry (unlike clothing, handbags and shoes) things like gold hoops, pearl strands, and cocktail rings never go out of style. So you’re not stuck buying patterned tights and a ruffle shirt at rock bottom prices that will promptly go in the back of your closet and stay there to rot with the rest of your ‘too cheap to pass up’ purchases.

I haven’t been able to confirm how long this sale lasts, but what I do know is the inventory isn’t going to last long. It’s rule #1 of a good sale, right? Get in early. Get out quick.

So check out the JewelClub onesie selection and let me know how you make out. And feel free to tweet or comment with any other great jewelry sales I should know about!

Celebrity engagement news is breaking big today! Here’s the scoop:

From “Black Swan” to Baby Momma:

Not only is Natalie Portman engaged to her (gorgeous!) choreographer boyfriend, Benjamin Millepied, they’re also expecting their first child. The Black Swan star met her hubby-to-be on the set last year (he choreographed all of her numbers), and the Oscar buzz is building along with her little ballet-dancing bun in the oven.

Portman has been on the red carpet all month promoting the film (and Dior’s new perfume), but despite a mention of ‘eating a lot’ lately – this news is a total shock.

No ring sighting yet, but stay tuned.

Hef’s Getting Hitched:

The other shocker today is news that everyone’s favorite bachelor octogenarian popped the question to his 24-year-old playmate girlfriend, Crystal Harris.

“After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve,” Hefner, 84, tweeted. “When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.”

Later, he clarified, “Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all.”

What kind of ring exactly remains to be seen, but my guess is Hef will make sure his bunny’s got enough ‘carats’ to keep her satisfied.

But celebs aren’t the only folks with romance on their minds. With New Year’s Eve around the corner, many questions have yet to be popped. So fellas? If you need a little nudge in the right direction – check out the amazing post-Christmas engagement ring deals on sample sale sites like JewelClub.

In the meantime, congrats to the happy couples!

Let the royal wedding jewelry games begin, my fellow bauble lovers. It’s official. Everyone and their mother wants a Princess Di-inspired piece of jewelry for the holidays.

I have to admit – much like those wily obituary writers who have their Keith Richards piece done WAY in advance  – I’ve been waiting for the Prince William proposal to rock the celebrity jewelry world for quite some time now.

I mean, c’mon, lad! Eight years is enough!

So. I had all my ducks in a row when the stars aligned last week and apparently – so did sample sale site sensation, JewelClub. 

While jewelry manufacturers are scrambling to get their Lady Di merchandise in stores for the holiday shopping season, JewelClubers already have a collection curated, priced and ready to go – today.

Of course I pored over their Lady Di Sample Sale stash that went live at midnight – and they have the Kate ring up the wazoo for folks who want a replica. But they go one better by including royalty-inspired sapphire styles that allow women to put their own personal stamp on the trend. Cool.

Not only that – but they’ve thrown in a nod to the other royals who’ve walked down the aisle in emeralds, rubies and other gems to boot. (Did you know Fergie wore a ruby engagement ring? I guess her poor decision-making skills started after the divorce.)

We’ve got until the clock strikes twelve on Wednesday to take advantage of their generous pricing (up to 80% off retail) before our princess fantasies turn into proverbial pumpkins. So get on it jewelry hounds and gift givers! It doesn’t get much bigger than this in terms of trend meeting taste.

Even Keith Richards would be impressed. Alive. And impressed.

JewelClub’s Sample Sale Goes Old School

INTERIOR – WOMAN’S CLOSET – EARLY  MORNING:

The telltale signs of a true fashionista litter the landscape. Racks of Chanel and DKNY finds mingle with McQueen and Miu Miu. Vintage jewelry, costume creations and fine gems light up the joint like a Christmas tree on crack. A mash-up of the “Rocky Theme Song” and “I Will Survive” BLASTS in the background. As the music reaches its crazy crescendo, we CLOSE UP on a leggy fashion-type doning riot gear.

This is SAMPLE SALE GIRL.
SSG WHIPS OUT her notepad and goes through her battle-ready checklist:
1. Super Secret Sample Sale invite? Check.
2. Oversized shopping bag? Check.
3. Pepper spray for the pushy girls? Check.
4. Debit card? Check, check…and check.

With one final tighten of her shin guards, SSG whisks off into the cool morning air –  the lingering promise of sample sale success lighting her way. And her soul.
And…SCENE.
This was sample sale shopping in the (not so distant) past, right? When secret invitations were as important as the designer castoffs that awaited the organized and the determined. These days? Sample sales aren’t, well, quite so romantic. Or competitive. Until now.

You all know I love my JewelClub treasure chest. So when news hit that they’re throwing a secret couture-level sample sale like the good old days? I had to spead the news to my fellow jewelry hounds.

So here’s the skinny. Tomorrow, they’re sending out secret invitations with a link to the page with one-of-a-kind high-end styles at up to (drumroll…) 80 – 90% off.

This is so pepper-spray-worthy, people.

 

ALL of you sample sale sirens need to get your riot gear ready (you can sign up for the Deal Alert invite here – or check back with me tomorrow). And anyone you know who has a big jewelry purchase coming up should follow your lead. This is holiday season. It’s time to get serious – and this merch is gonna move.

I’m getting a sneak peak at some of the styles later today – and I’ll post my favs on Twitter for you. Stay tuned! And good luck!
