It's a drag that, when you want to adorn the one you love with shiny metallic objects, you're likely going to spend more than you should. (We're looking at you, Valentine's Day "sales"). But did you know that during the holidays jewelry sales aren't that great, either? We're not saying to skip the pretty things she's been eyeing for weeks all together, but you also could do worse than these five Editors' Choice jewelry deals that make the most of the season's sales.
Blue Nile Coupon
Price: $35 off via coupon code "VME"
Shipping: Free shipping
Expires: December 3 at 9 pm
Is It Worth It?: In what is the strongest dollar-off discount we've seen from Blue Nile in 2012, you'll save $35 off orders of $50 or more via coupon code "VME" when you check out with V.me by Visa. (V.me is an online payment service from Visa, but you can use MasterCard, Discover, and American Express cards with it too. For more information on V.me by Visa, click here.) This discount calculates to a top percentage rate of 70% off, if your order totals exactly $50, so choose wisely! Note that there is a maximum discount of $35 per customer and that sale items are excluded.
$100 Blue Nile Credit for $50
Discount: 50% off
Expires: December 1
Is It Worth It?: This half-off deal on either $100 or $200 worth of goods from luxury retailer Blue Nile is your best bet for both present and future jewelry gifts. Plus, it's tied with our mention from last week! If you nab this deal before the start of DEcember, you'll have until February 28, 2013 to redeem it for its promotional value.
Before you decide to buy this Groupon, note that it won't combine with the aforementioned $35 off your purchase. Thus it's in your best interest to do the math on which deal will save you the most money.
