Stella & Dot Brand Review | TARA BERRIES


My friend Amanda is an Independent Stella & Dot Stylist and I have been to three of her trunk shows. Over these three trunk shows I have come across so much beautiful jewellery that I thought I would do a brand review. 



Being in my twenties I find myself throwing away the costume/junk jewellery that was collected from my preteen and teenage years. Throwing away my costume jewellery has shown me that I have very little jewellery and being invited to a Stella & Dot party is exactly the thing I needed to purchase some nice items. 


The first purchase I ever made was the Radiance Coil Bracelet which is such a simple piece of jewellery that gives the illusion of wearing two bracelets. It is great for a night out on the town or a dressed up holiday party.

A recent purchase of mine was the earrings called Aurora Stud Pack in Silver. I love the little crowns and the cute geometric shapes of the triangles and rods. 


As you may know, April is Autism Awareness Month and Stella & Dot have a Pave Wishing Bracelet in Gold that I purchased. All proceeds of this item go to the HollyRod Foundation. I love this bracelet so much, I think it is elegant and cute and it is my favourite Stella & Dot purchase so far.

An item I purchased in January was the Westwood Scarf in Metallic Grey. I really like the length of this scarf as it can be a great bathing suite cover up or even tied as a vest. It is amazing the different things you can do with a scarf and this one is the perfect addition to my wardrobe.

When people attend the trunk shows they are somewhat surprised at the prices of the items, maybe they were thinking of an AVON type brand because it is direct buy but it is definitely better quality than anything AVON sells. The reason the jewellery is on a bit of a pricier end is because they use high quality materials and top designers to come up with such great products. Their handbags are made in the same factories as COACH and Prada so you know you are getting similar quality but the price of Stella & Dot is much better than COACH or Prada.

If you are invited to a Stella & Dot trunk show I highly advise going as I love the products. Have you purchased anything from Stella & Dot? If so, which items and do you like them?

  5. I agree that you get to that point in your life when you need to transition to better jewelry and throw out some of the lesser quality pieces we all accumulate!
