I discovered the website http://www.baublebar.com from youtube about two summers ago. When ROSE GOLD was THE ultimate accessory color, I remember watching a series of youtube videos of people showing off these beautiful bracelets they got from this website.
Naturally, I checked it out and fell in love too. It was weird for me because up until I discovered this page, I never owned non-designer jewelry. I was so accustomed to having a big TIFFANY AND CO or VIVA LA COUTURE on everything I owned, so it came as a shock that I was obsessed.
Baublebar used to be that you would make an account and then by signing up you got a certain number of dollars off your first purchase…can’t remember exactly but I’m pretty sure you got 100 vault points which meant $10… because 10 vault points equals 1 dollar off…
The promotion was substantial enough for me to decide to stock up on all these really cool pieces.
The hidden vault they feature (an item thats been discounted) would make me really excited too because I could get really awesome pieces for dirt cheap. The only downside is you can’t use your vault points on the special piece.
It was such a lovely romance…until bauble bar became famous.
Like, we’re talking deals with nordstrom and being featured everywhere.
And with fame, comes arrogance.
They got SO expensive.
I no longer can justify spending money on a necklace because a style that would have been in the high 20 range is now in the 30 or 40. Thats just too much for trendy jewelry. I’d much rather go to TJMAXX or Forever 21.
I really miss ordering stuff from them too but unless I find something I can’t live without, I won’t buy their stuff anymore. I make $8.85 an hour, thats like one fake gem on a necklace. Its a shame. I really enjoyed the free shipping and the cute protective bags the jewelry came in. They have quality fashion jewelry as well. Everything I’ve bought has been well made.
I’m not bashing them for their jewelry (because I still love it!), I’m just saying I can’t deal with the expensive factor that wasn’t there when it first started off. But hey, supply and demand, huh.
That being said, I went through the website and found some of the pieces I would buy if money was not an issue.
^$230 for this is crazy. CRAZY. but i like it.
I’m noticing a lot of fake looking silver/diamond aka rustic look, lots of braided thread pieces, and lots of of blues. I’m not really a fan of much this season anyway to be honest.
OHH AND BEFORE YOU GO: check out what the CEOS had to say about their company!
Tell me where you buy your jewelry!!!!
