Did you know that the jewelry market will become a $480 billion industry by 2025?

While established brands at brick-and-mortar stores own a massive chunk of the market, new disruptors like BaubleBar and Blush and Bar are quickly gaining attention.

In this review, we'll explore what BaubleBar has to offer that's creating so many happy customers.

Brand Story and Mission

Daniella Yacobovsky-Fiala and Amy Jain, the Harvard MBA co-founders of BaubleBar, noticed a gap in the jewelry market between high-end stores like Tiffany’s and low-end stores like Claire’s.

Their vision?

To give the average customer a brand they could rely on to deliver fun, on-trend jewelry and accessories at an affordable price point. 

After launching their online jewelry store in 2011, the startup raised $15.6 million in funding, and now they’re one of the most well-known up-and-coming brands in the industry

Baublebar product selection

Their team designs everything in their New York City headquarters and releases new pieces every Sunday through their website. 

BaubleBar SugarFix product selection

 

You can find BaubleBar in over 200 retailers across 17 countries, including at Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, and Anthropologie.

And for the budget-conscious, their recently launched label for on-trend jewelry at “guilt-free” prices is called SugarFix by BaubleBar - available at 1,800 Target stores and on Target.com.

Fashion On a Budget

The company's founders hope you mix affordable, on-trend pieces with the fine jewelry you invest in to create a style that’s uniquely you.

 

BaubleBar SugarFix more product selection

 

Their SugarFix line is designed to be more affordable - prices vary between $9.99 and $19.99.

Is BaubleBar Good Quality?

Each BaubleBar piece is hypoallergenic and certified nickel-free, lead-free, cadmium-free, and phthalates-free.

Their jewelry is crafted using a variety of materials, including semi-precious stones, glass, resin, 18K gold, sterling silver, and brass. 

 

BaubleBar Everyday Fine Collection

 

Their Everyday Fine collection is made using 18K gold and ethically-sourced diamonds. 

The BaubleBar team says they “test-wore” their fine jewelry collection for a year and traveled to “9 countries, 186 meetings, and 3 festivals (or was it 4?).”

While they may be confident that their fine jewelry stands up to wear, tear, and tarnish, some of their fashion jewelry is made of brass. And that means your skin and jewelry could turn green with discoloration.

Customer Benefits

Shipping

BaubleBar offers free shipping on all orders over $35 via USPS, UPS Mail Innovations, and UPS.

Loyalty & Rewards Programs

BaubleBar used to reward loyal shoppers with a points system known as The Vault. However, BaubleBar retired their Vault Rewards Program in March 2020.

(If you're looking for a loyalty program you can get behind, Blush and Bar rewards much more than just purchases!)

Noteworthy Extras

Have questions or need style advice? 

BaubleBar will connect you to a Service With Accessorizing Talent (SWAT) team member to answer style help inquiries within 24 hours. They’ll email, call, or text you Monday through Friday between 9AM and 6PM (EST).

So, BaubleBar or Blush and Bar? 

BaubleBar specializes in affordable jewelry designs snatched straight off the runway. But you have no idea whether those trends will be stylish one day and a fashion fail the next. 

All the pieces from Blush and Bar share a timeless elegance balanced by modern design. Their dainty rings are designed to never go out of style, and every piece comes with a lifetime warranty.

Bonus: Our stackable ring deals (like Pick 3 for $99) are impossible to beat!
