How do you reconcile a shopping obsession with a tight budget—or a love for pricey, trendy jewelry with buyer’s remorse or shopping commitment issues? Easy: Rent your jewelry. Popular online rental sites and subscription services make expensive, designer jewelry not only attainable for non-A-listers, but surprisingly affordable. So next time you’re dying to test drive a pair of pearl Chanel earrings, consider renting them for $29 a month (instead of buying them for $500 and missing a rent payment). Below, five online jewelry rental sites that let you borrow the most gorgeous bling with no strings attached.
1. Rent the Runway
Rent the Runway offers wear-and-return attire options for everything from black-tie galas to the office—but did you know you can rent fine jewelry too? Request a one-time rental for a specific event or sign up to receive monthly shipments of beautiful jewelry for as little as $6 per piece.
Wish your jewelry box was overflowing with designer pieces? Flont can make that happen. At $59 per month, a Flont membership gives you access to jewelry from renowned fashion houses and need-to-know new-comers—and everything in between. Want to rent once without a membership? You can do that too.
3. Red Carpet Rocks
Red Carpet Rocks is ideal for shopaholics on a budget. Rent stunning, demi-fine jewelry starting at $39 and it's yours for four days. Show off your trendy baubles, drop them off at your nearest FedEx with a prepaid label—then start shopping for your next rental ASAP.
4. Haute Vault
After applying for a Haute Vault membership online, choose the membership option perfect for your budget and lifestyle, then get ready to reserve jaw-dropping jewelry and watches from its curated collections.
