Jewelmint: Feb picks + The VIP Gift Bag

So every month or two, JM likes to do these mystery bags with themes. I always pick one up, just to see what's in them. The theme of this one is the academy awards. 

They also try to entice you with extras. Last time they did a mystery bag, they were giving away a bunch of kindle fires and jewelry boxes. This time, one bag will have a diamond bracelet inside of it.

I received 2 pieces in my VIP bag and 3 different coupon codes (Shoemint, Stylemint, Beautymint). Let me know if any of you girls want those. I don't need it.

My first piece was the Rachel Rose Earrings. I love the look of them, but they don't feel very well made. They're super light and according to the info card, they're supposed to be gold plated. WELLLLL ....

take a closer look at my earrings. They're TARNISHED. Are they supposed to be like that? I've owned pieces of silver jewelry from JM before and they have never had that oxidized look. I contacted CS and they're sending me something else =/

I also received the Morning Star Bangle. This was actually a piece that I was thinking about getting. It's almost like a ninja star but more girly. 

They also threw in a tin of Nivea cream? Idk it was cute, but I heard a lot of people's tins were expired. I couldn't find the date on mine so I assume it's good?

So funny story ... The day after I had purchased my VIP bag, JM offered another deal that I just couldn't pass up. They were giving away a Humanity bracelet with every purchase. I had wanted this bracelet for a long time but it was ALWAYS sold out. So I jumped at the chance. Here's the generic website pic ...

The bracelet was a lot smaller than I thought it would be, but I really like it. It's a dainty and very feminine piece. A great piece for layering too.

I like that the back says something inspiring. Be the change you want over and over again. I also like the clasp. It's a rose gold color.

SO ontop of the Humanity bracelet, I also purchased another favorite. The Birdcage Bangle. This is another bracelet that I've been eyeballin but just never pulled the trigger on. It was brought back so you know I had to get it!

I was anticipating this to be a kinda cheapie, forever21 feeling piece. I was pleasantly surprised. It's pretty heavy and really well made. I actually tried to bend it and it wouldn't budge. The bracelet is pretty small so if you have larger wrists, i would pass on purchasing this piece.

Don't forget to enter my 100 Follower giveaway here! It's going on until March 31st!

@alanyskpl Yea i like to think i have average to slightly small wrists and it barely makes it past my hands. You gotta scrunch them.

I was about to get either Rachel Rose Earrings or Rachel Emerald Earring. However after I saw your review and read other people's review about both of them. The Rachel Emerald Earring is better quality, but the stones are a little bit dark. =/ Overall, I love the Humanity bracelet so far. Thank you for your review.

@My Dream World I wish they sent the Rachel Emerald ones! I didn't expect the stones to be that muddy brown color either. They look a lot better on the website and you're welcome!

@Gayle That's only if you buy the mystery bag. You can normally choose your pieces every month.
