I was recently contacted by a fabulous woman named Courtney who has her own business as a rep for Stella & Dot jewelry. I’ve heard of Stella and Dot before, largely due to its popularity with celebrities, but I never paid too much attention to it, assuming that their prices would be beyond outrageous (I mean, anything that Paris Hilton sports on a regular basis has got to be ridiculously pricey, right?). Well, I’m pleased to report that Stella and Dot offers beautiful and fashion-forward pieces for a variety of budgets!
For example, Courtney sent me two pieces to review that are sensibly priced. First, check out the Turquoise Sea Drop Earrings. They are simple, yet bold, and they are absolutely perfect for the summer months! They are also an affordable $29.00. They are not too lightweight (sometimes earrings can be so lightweight and you KNOW they are made of really cheap material). But they also don’t drag down your ear lobes!
While Stella and Dot does have some jewelry that I can’t really afford (but would love to own….hello there, Colette necklace), I also saw several things that I wouldn’t feel bad about requesting for my birthday in a few months (like the smoky drop earrings or the teardrop scroll earrings, both priced under $30!).
Also, if there’s a girly girl in your home who likes to play dress up with mommy’s jewelry, Stella and Dot has recently launched a line just for little girls! While Darah is too young for her own jewelry (other than her earrings, of course), I’m really looking forward to giving her this cute Little Dottie Bracelet that Courtney sent to me once she gets bigger. It’s bright, looks well-made, and comes in the cutest little tin. It is gift-ready if you are looking for a present for a little girl. All of their children’s jewelry is inspected to ensure that it meet lead standards, as well.
Check out Stella and Dot if you haven’t before. Be sure to notice that you can shop by trend, which is especially helpful if there’s a particular look you are going for. Also, if you are looking for a really fun opportunity to start your own company, sell high-quality products and have a lot of fun in the process, contact Courtney at courthutton(at) gmail (dot) com to get more information about how to become a Stella & Dot stylist. She’d love to answer your questions and help you get started! Courtney shares the following about how she got started, “Even though I work a full time job, I longed for something more FUN and stylish than my ‘real job’, something that was truly my own. I wanted a business that I was proud of, and if I worked hard I could enjoy the rewards of my own effort. Like lots of people, I dreamt about being an entrepreneur, but didn’t know if I had the money to make it happen! When I discovered Stella & Dot, and realized how affordable it was to start a profitable and high potential business, I knew I could stop dreaming and start living! I didn’t need to open my own boutique and worry about leases, inventory, websites, and employees! I was thrilled that I could launch this business RIGHT AWAY and work it right alongside my current job! No risk at all.”
