I have too much jewelry…said no woman ever.
I pretty much always quickly eyeball the Groupon and Living Social deals sitting in my inbox. Most of the time, I pass on the offers. But I think it was Living Social that had a 20% off coupon, so I looked a little more carefully. I noticed an offer from Victoria Emerson, a jewelry brand I never heard of, that was selling leather and bead wrap bracelets for $24, and it qualified for the 20% off coupon. So the price was $18. The bracelets come in a variety of leather and bead color combinations, and I believe there are four options that are deeply discounted at $24. I chose the dark brown leather with turquoise beads (that I just noticed is no longer offered at the sale price, but there are other great options still).
I was blown away when I received the bracelet last week. It is such a high quality bracelet. I could still smell the fresh leather smell (in a good way), and the beads are real turquoise beads, not plastic. It is very substantial and well made. I love this bracelet!
I had purchased another wrap bracelet at a home jewelry party about six weeks ago, and it was a nice bracelet and cost about ten dollars more than the Victoria Emerson bracelet. It has metal studs, and I like the look, but the quality is not nearly as good as this one.
So, if you’re looking for an affordable holiday gift for someone who likes the wrap bracelet look, this is it! Go to victoriaemerson.com and check out these babies that regularly cost $199 but are on sale for $24 or $27 till November 30, 2013. Shipping was $2.99. You’ll be glad you did.
UPDATE: Due to the popularity of this post, I thought an update was in order. Victoria Emerson’s website seems to have sale bracelets almost all the time. There are both $24 sale bracelets on existing inventory, and new sale bracelets from the current collection for $27 or $29. They do not require a special code from what I can tell. Here is a link to the new Purple collection (November 2014) that is on sale now.
