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!

Used to be the words ‘jewelry’ and ‘sale’ were the oil and water of the marketing world. The common wisdom was: folks just wouldn’t want to buy discounted diamonds and gems, fearing they were somehow tainted or ‘damaged goods’.

But they were wrong. So wrong.

Unlike a four-carton pile-on at the all-you-can-eat buffet, there is no shame in the jewelry deal. Now, every jewelry outlet – from mall retailers and department stores to mom & pop shops and online e-tailers – offers sales, discounts and the grand-daddy of ’em all: wholesale jewelry.

Enter: JewelClub. 

What was once a ‘password-protected’ Friends and Family site for a large fine jewelry manufacturer offering 70-80% off retail (yes, you’re reading that right), is now open to all us huddled masses yearning to bling free.

And in the great Donald Trump “Art of the Deal” tradition – they now have a “Deal of the Day” feature, where they offer one item every 24 hours for an even lower price. Sometimes it’s a colorful cocktail ring. Sometimes it’s gold hoops. Sometimes it’s a bridal piece. Sometimes it’s a brown diamond cat pendant. I could go on…But it’s always worth a look.

I just check their Facebook Page or their homepage for a quick glimpse every morning, and then go about my business.

So frugalistas and jewelry hounds, there’s really no reason to pay retail when it comes to fine jewelry anymore. There are, of course, still reasons to hide our heads in shame (Jersey Shore marathon, anyone?). Luckily – buying fine jewelry at a discount is no longer one of them.

Now go out there and make ‘The Donald’ proud.

As promised, here are a few of the incredible deals you can steal on JewelClub for the next few days. I wrote about their Vault Sale on Monday but wasn’t privy to the styles they are featuring. They published the 18 pretties today and here are a few of my favs:

Diamond Studs. They’re like a good bra – every girl needs ’em, right? These were originally priced at $229 and are $51.09 until Monday. ‘Nuff said.

Bridal Bling. Anyone shopping for an engagement ring/wedding band combo would be loathe to miss this offering. White gold is ‘in’ and the 1 and 3/8 ct. design has a vintage feel to it. The price is what’s really incredible: $804.41 down from $3949.

Finally, I’m loving these chocolate diamond hoops. Combining two trends in one (hoops and colored diamonds), JewelClub is crazy to give these away for just $295 (down from $1429).

But then again, “Crazy sells”, according to NY Housewife, Kelly Bensimon.

You usually have to have an invite to shop the sales, but if you follow my lead, you can get in on the savings with all the rest of the JewelClubers:

1. Click on any piece in this announcement: JewelClub Vault Sale
2. Enter your email
3. Use the Access Code: INSIDER

And you’re good to go.

I think I’ve said enough, but I will leave you with these two parting words: Shipping included.

Get on it, jewelry hounds!

Jewelry hounds, mark your calendars. I just got word that my favorite jewelry sample sale site, JewelClub, is launching a rare vault sale where they’re knocking off 25% on 18 select styles.

That’s 25% off WHOLESALE!

Um, yeah. Now that I’ve got your attention…

The sale will start this Thursday, June 17th but will only last a few days (through Monday, June 21st) – and like most big discount sales the inventory is limited and may go quickly.


I have only seen this teaser piece to whet your whistle – it’s a three-stone bridal ring that’s over $3,000 off the suggested retail price. (insert lower jaw-drop here)

But brides and grooms aren’t the only audience they’re targeting; they assure me there will be trendy pieces, jewelry box staples and colorful creations all ripe for the picking.


So be sure to sign up on www.jewelclub.com, using the code: INSIDER (if you haven’t already) to get in the loop on this super sale. I won’t steer you wrong on this. Their prices are as low as a Mariah Carey neckline.

Three Magic Words: 20% Off Wholesale

We jewelry and fashion hounds know there are sample sales and there are sample sales. Sometimes you find what you’re looking for only to realize the discounted price is more than you’d pay off the rack or the ‘huge’ selection they promise is wittled down to the gauche and the gaudy.

But JewelClub is a happy shining place of constant sample sale hope. With new product added constantly and prices as high as 80% off retail, the ‘digger’ in all of us can give our sample sale shovels a rest. Permanently.

Here is just a glimpse of the monthly specials they run – a dozen icy jewels at 20% off the JewelClub discounted price until the end of the month. Aquamarines, sapphires, turquoise and more are featured at prices you have to see to believe.

And they throw in free shipping on ALL orders – so you can shop from the warmth of your own home and just wait for the spoils to arrive.
