Buying jewelry is the worst. Sure it starts off all fun, but then, after an hour of pawing through flea market rings and being blinded by all the sparkles blending together, you find yourself wondering, “A ring depicting a giant orangutan? In topaz? Is that me?” No! It’s not you! Someone should have told you that. Fortunately, JewelMint is here to help you out.

The members-only jewelry club will help you select which accessories are right for you based on a style and personality profile. You’ll answer questions like whether your taste is closer to Alexa Chung’s or Sarah Jessica Parker’s, and whether you prefer Chloe or Christian Dior. Once you’ve taken the quiz, they’ll select items that are the best fit for you. And all the pieces will be trendy, because JewelMint has teamed up with fashion icon Kate Bosworth and Hollywood’s stylist of the year Cher Coulter to design every piece featured on its site. It’s like having a friend with great taste who is always around to help you out – if your friend was a style savvy movie star.

And the prices are pretty friendly, too. Once you become a member, each designer piece is only $29.99, so you can indulge your passion for jewelry without breaking your budget. There are new personalized designs to check out every month, and none of them look like that weird orangutan thing you got from the flea market.

Last and best of all, JewelMint is offering Gloss readers a special: enter the promo code GLOSS for 50% off on your first purchase (for first time users). This amazing little deal expires on 10/31/11, so hurry up!
