You see this ad to the right that says get your free jewelry from the silverjewelryclub.com website?
I have always been very skeptical about these types of things.
Nothing’s for FREE, right?
So I decided to test it out and see if their claim of free jewelry really worked or if it was a scam.
Here are my results…
(By the way… Most of the images used in this post will bring up larger images so you can see in detail what they actually say.)
First… When you go to their website you’ll see a very neat and clean site. I was surprised at how simple and elegant it was. I was expecting some gaudy cheap looking website with lots of pop-up ads. Let me tell you, they have no pop-ups. No scrolling images, nothing blinking, clean… So for first impressions, I liked it.
Here’s a screenshot:
Crisp clean images:
The images of their merchandise is beautiful. You’ll see they have 4 items featured at all times. But there are a couple very exciting things about this selection. You see the countdown that reads:
Well that’s the cool thing about this… Each item is only free for a limited time. When the timer runs out, that piece is swapped with a new item. Hundreds of items. In fact, do you see the line that reads:
You’ll be taken to a page that has 15 more free pieces of jewelry.
So if you don’t like the 4 featured items, you’re certain to like one of the next 15 free pieces. Every couple of minutes they’ll rotate and have more free jewelry; free rings, free pendants, free earrings, free bracelets, plus they have free jewelry for both men and women.
Even this upcoming jewelry page is neat and clean.
Everything is as simple and straightforward as possible.
I’m surprised at how painless this is. I keep thinking something’s up…
Is it really FREE?
When you view this page it says right at the top, and I quote:
“The following items are due to be displayed on our home page in the next few hours. If you would like to be notified when they appear, then: Check the boxes of the designs that interest you. You can select as many as you want. Fill in your information and enter submit.”
And right next to that you’ll see this form to fill out.
Fill out the Form:
Nothing difficult, nothing hard:
I tested it out and sure enough, within the next hour, when the item I selected came up for it’s free purchase, they sent me an email so I could go to the page and get it.
I was impressed.
I was able to view more details about the item (as you can see from the screenshot to the left). So after testing out their site and looking at the beautiful pictures of jewelry, I decided to take the plunge. I selected a piece of merchandise to order. After scanning all the pictures of free pendants and rings, I finally made my choice:
I decided to order this free citrine pendant which retailed for $49.99.
That’s a Deal!
The photo shows the item I selected and more details about that piece. All in all, I was quite happy with my decision.
It was a beautiful pendant with 2 round cut genuine citrines totaling 75 points (listed as vibrant and clean clarity). The citrines which are 4 and 5 mm are set in sterling silver. It listed the length and gram weight.
So when you’re ready to order, all you have to do is look for the that little button that says:
Scary isn’t it? You don’t see too many buttons that say that. So, as it stands right now, it seems that the jewelry IS free, and the only thing that I’ll have to pay for is shipping and handling charges (which is $5.99).
I’m still Hesitant, but I continue…
I now see that I’m taken to a cart page that shows a picture of the item (which is good, no bait and switch going on).
I see the item totals and the shipping charges as stated earlier.
Everything is on the up and up (I’m surprised they tell you everything up front and hide nothing). It clearly shows the item is free and that shipping is $5.99.
But this is how they make their money…
Before I finished, I figured it out. I see how they make their money now (Would you like fries with that?) At the bottom of the cart is a sterling silver chain that says:
“Would you like a sterling silver italian box chain with this pendant? (Please select the desired length)” It even shows you a picture of it. And it was a nice looking chain too…
But no matter what length you chose, the chain was still only $4.00 more (Still impressive).
They will sell a 20″ chain for the same price as a 16″ chain? That’s unheard of. Not to mention cheap for a silver chain. No matter what though, I still wanted to see if I could get this pendant for free. So I decided to order it as is and purchase a chain later (I’m not being cheap, I’m just wanting it FREE). Know what I mean?
I had to see if it was really was FREE…
So now comes the FUN part:
They have a spot to enter a discount coupon code (which I find odd).
How can you discount a free piece of jewelry?
I didn’t get it… Unless they sent you coupons that give you a discount on the $4.00 silver chain? Hmmm, I just don’t know.
Next I see the billing information (JOY!) Who likes filling these things out? Their form is simple and easy though, and they have a choice of payment options like:
I like the fact that I can use my Paypal account…
Everyone has a Paypal from Ebay, right?
But in the end, I decided to use my trusty Mastercard. I was too lazy to find my username and password for Paypal.
The site also has these easy boxes that say “Shipping information is the same as billing.” I like that. It makes ordering short and sweet. Plus it helps if you want to send the free jewelry as a present to someone too (wink wink).
Enter your credit card info:
I choose next and am taken to one of the easiest credit card payment pages I’ve ever seen. Is this for real?
Everything on this website is neat, simple, clean and easy to understand. I’m really impressed that the whole ordering isn’t more of a pain in the butt (Was still expecting some sort of bait…)
How do they do it?
Who knows… I enter my Mastercard and selected my expiration date (while also noting that it takes you to a secure checkout)…
How do you know it’s secure?
See that little lock in the lower right hand portion of your browser that states that it’s a secure site?
Yeah… That means you won’t have to worry about identity theft or having your credit info stolen.
(So always look for that lock before you enter any credit card numbers.)
So what is the last step in this ordering process?
You see that button on the left?
That’s the very last step in your quest for free jewelry.
When you select that button…
Your order is complete!
So that’s how I ordered my free citrine pendant on Sunday, Feb. 10th, 2008.
I swear, this has been the simplest ordering process anywhere. It was quick and painless and their whole website is very easy to maneuver around. You won’t have any problems with it. Nothing’s hidden. There are no secret claims or enrollments or trap doors. Everything is truly as it seems. Once you select that button you’ll see this message:
And below that message you’ll see your order of free jewelry details.
This includes your billing information, your shipping information, the item you ordered, and how you paid for the shipping and handling charges. See the picture of the details of my order:
Free and finished:
So that’s it for the ordering process.
It really was that simple (I think my cat could do it). You’ll have to check out their site and see how simple it really is.
So there you go, I’ve walked you through all the steps…
I really didn’t think I’ve ever seen an easier way to get free jewelry.
And now that I’m done with my order, I got a couple of emails from them. One with the free jewelry invoice, and one with the final order confirmation. See the pictures…
Don’t doubt it! It works!
If you’ve ever doubted any of this process… DON’T!
It’s just as I described (Almost word for word). I really didn’t think it would be FREE. I really didn’t think it would be easy. I thought I’d have to jump through hoops, sign up with programs, get pop-up windows and viruses… all the things you’d normally think when you read “GET FREE JEWELRY!“
But I assure you, it’s not a scam. It’s not a hoax. It’s not a lie. Their website is awesome.
How long does the whole process take?
The process of ordering free jewelry took about 2 whole minutes.
Ha! That’s it!
It will take you longer to read this post than it would to get free jewelry! Really!
The last email:
The very last email that you’ll get from them is a confirmation email. I got that 2 days later saying my free pendant had shipped. 2 days? You bet. Believe me, until I actually got my jewelry in my hand, I still didn’t believe it.
My pendant Arrives:
All right skeptical guys and gals, here’s the order..
I received my package in the mail Saturday, Feb 16th, 2008 just 6 days after I ordered it.
I’m still kind of shocked, but also a little excited. How cool is this? Free Jewelry. Who would have ever thought?
But the proof is in the pudding…
What does my pendant look like? Will it look like it was pictured? Let’s see…
Opening the package:
I open the package; Inside the padded envelope is a cute little jewelry pouch. A blue pouch with a drawstring (Which makes a nice travel bag for your jewelry on the go).
I open the darling little bag and see a poly bag inside with the item number of the free citrine pendant.
So far so good…
But something caught my eye and made me laugh…
Written on the bag was:
“Made in Thailand”
HA! What isn’t? I guess I don’t really care, cause it was FREE!
P.S. the blue pouch was made in China (if it makes you feel better). :)
Now the real moment of truth:
I opened my package…
And pull out my free pendant.
And I have to say:
I LOVE IT!
It’s so freaking cute!
It’s actually way prettier than I thought it would be.
The sterling silver is shiny and lustrous. The citrines are bright and sparkly (and actually match). The stones have good vivid yellow tones, and the mounting is made very well. I didn’t see any dark spots or clouds or inclusions in the stones… They are stunning!
What more can I say?
I’m blown away with the quality and merchandise. I love how easy it was and how fast I got it. For being free, everyone will be very, very happy, no doubt.
Here’s a picture I took of my free pendant. The pendant actually looks better in person. The picture just doesn’t do it justice. I like it so much, that I’m thinking about just ordering more free jewelry (people could get addicted to this). All you pay for is shipping and handling, so why not?
I did a search online for citrine pendants just to see how much they sold for, and found they range anywhere from $50 bucks to a couple of hundred bucks. And almost every single pendant I found only had one citrine in it. Bonus!
All in all, I’ll say that this is an absolutely great deal.
I mean, how many times can you actually buy free gemstones?
My advice is this:
Order some free jewelry for yourself.
Order yours today!
It’s now been years since this post was wrote. And guess what?
It’s NOT FREE anymore!
It was good while it lasted though.
silverjewelryclub.com is still alive and kicking, and it’s also still featuring cute products and great looking gemstones. But as you can see from the picture below… prices have gone up! I will say, that paying $14.90 for these lab created sapphire earrings is still dirt cheap (especially since shipping is FREE), but it’s just not the same. :)
Oh well… That’s only $7.50 per ear, right? ;)
You’re better off heading over to Amazon’s silver jewelry HERE!
Because those are cheap, and you can still get FREE shipping as long as you have PRIME. :)
