You see this ad to the right that says Get your Free Jewelry from the Silver Jewelry Club Website?
I have always been very skeptical about these types of things.
Nothing’s FREE, right?
Well, 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 blog will bring up larger images so you can see in detail what they say!)
First things 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 felt. 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, nothing. So for first impressions, I was impressed!
Here’s the screenshot…
Crisp and Clean!
You see crisp clean images of their Free Merchandise right off the bat. They have 4 items featured at all times. But there are a couple very exciting things about this selection. You see the countdown right below the images that reads like:
Free Jeweler’s Merchandise
Well that’s the cool thing about this. Each item is only Free for 15 minutes at a time. It’s all very interesting. When that 15 minute timer runs out, that piece is swapped with a new free item. Hundreds of free items. In fact, go to the line that says:
You’ll be taken to a page that has 15 More Free Pieces of Jewelry! 15!
So if you don’t like the 4 featured Free items, you’re certain to like one of the next 15 Free Pieces. Every couple of minutes they will rotate and have more and more free jewelry, like free rings, free pendants, free earrings, free bracelets, plus they have free jewelry for both men and women.
Even this Upcoming Free Jewelry page is neat and clean on their website.
Everything is as simple and straight forward as possible.
I’m still surprised at how painless this is. I keep thinking something’s up… nothing’s free! Nothing! Or is it?
Is it really FREE?
When you view this page it says right at the top a couple of more interesting things. It says, 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 my free jewelry!
I tell you, this is all impressive. 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 little site and looking at the beautiful pictures of Free Jewelry, I decided to take the plunge and select a piece of merchandise to order. So I scanned all the pictures of Free Pendants and Rings and finally made my choice!
Wow, that’s a Deal!
The photo on the left shows the item I selected and more details about that piece. I was quite happy with this choice.
It’s 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 lists it’s length and even 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 the Shipping and Handling Charge which is $5.99!
I’m still Hesitant, but I Continue…
I see the item totals and the shipping charge as stated earlier.
Everything is on the up and up so far. I’m really surprised that they tell you everything up front and they hide nothing. It clearly shows the item is free and shipping is $5.99.
This is How they make their Money!
Before I continue, I now see how they make their money. (Would you like fries with that?) At the bottom of the cart is a Sterling Silver Chain. It says:
“Would you like a Sterling Silver Italian Box chain with this pendant? (Please select the desired length)” It even shows a picture of it! And it’s a Nice looking chain too!
But no matter what length you chose, the chain is still only $4.00. That’s impressive.
They sell a 20″ Chain for the same price as a 16″ chain? WOW! That’s cheap for a Silver Chain. But no matter, I still wanted to see if I could get this Pendant for Free. 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 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 don’t get it. Unless they send you coupons that give you a discount on the $4.00 Silver Chain? Hmm, I just don’t know.
Next I see the billing information. JOY! Who likes filling these things out? Their form is simple and easy and they have a choice of payment options like:
I like the fact that I can use my Paypal account.
Everyone has one of these from buying and selling on Ebay!
But in the end, I decide to just use my trusty Mastercard. I was too lazy to try to find my username and password for Paypal.
They also have one of those easy boxes that says “Shipping Information is the same as billing.” I like those. Makes ordering short and sweet. Plus it helps if you want to send the Free Jewelry as a present to someone! (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 extremely neat, simple, clean and easy to understand. I’m really impressed that this whole ordering free stuff isn’t more of a pain in the butt.
How do they do it?
So I enter my Mastercard and select my expiration date, while also noting that it takes you to a secure checkout… Which is just the best way to buy! Trust me, you want this!
How do you know that it’s secure?
Well that little lock in the lower right hand portion of your browser states that it’s a secure site.
That means you won’t have to worry about identity theft or having your credit info stolen.
Always look for that lock before you enter any credit card numbers.
So what is the last step in the 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 I ordered my Free Citrine Pendant on Sunday, Feb. 10th, 2008.
I swear, this has been the simplest ordering process available. It was quick and painless and their whole website is very easy to maneuver around in. 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:
Below that message you’ll see your order of Free Jewelry details!
That includes your billing information, your shipping information, the item you ordered, and how you paid for the shipping and handling charges! See the pic below for the details of my Free Pendant order:
Free and Finished!
That’s it for the ordering process.
It really is that simple. I think my cat could do it! You’ll have to check out their website and see how simple it really is.
I really don’t think I’ve ever seen an easier way to get Free Jewelry!
So now that you’re done with your order, you’ll get a couple of emails from them. One with the Free Jewelry Invoice. One with the final Order Confirmation. See pics!
Don’t Doubt it! It Works!
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 whole process of ordering your Free Jewelry takes about 2 minutes.
Ha! That’s it!
It will take you longer to read this post than to get your Free Jewelry! Really!
The very last email that you’ll get from them is to the right. It’s a confirmation email that I got 2 days later saying that my Free Pendant has shipped. Wow, 2 days! Believe me, until I actually get the Free Jewelry in my hands, I still won’t believe that all I had to pay for was shipping and handling.
My Pendant Arrives!
All right skeptical guys and gals, here’s the order.
I received this package in the mail Saturday, Feb 16th, 2008 just 6 days after I ordered it!
I’m still kind of shocked and also a little excited. This is very cool. Free Jewelry. Who would have ever thought?
But the proof is in the pudding right?
When it all comes down to it, the bottom line is going to be this: What does the pendant look like? Will it look like it was pictured? Let’s see…
Let’s Open the Package!
Something else caught my eye that made me laugh.
Written on the bag was:
“Made in Thailand”
HA! What isn’t? I guess I don’t really care, cause it’s FREE!
P.S. the blue pouch is made in China if it makes you feel better! :)
So now the moment of truth!
The Free Pendant…
Alright guys, I open the package…
Pull out the Free Pendant and I have to say:
I LOVE IT!
It’s so cute!
It’s actually prettier than I thought it would be.
The Sterling Silver is shiny and lustrous. The Citrines are very bright and sparkly and actually match! (which is very important!) They have good vivid yellow tones to them and the mounting is made very well. I don’t see any dark spots or clouds or any inclusions in the stones. The stones 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 Jewelry, you will be very, very happy with the item, no doubt.
Here’s a pic I took of the Free Pendant I got. The Pendant actually looks better in person. That picture just doesn’t do it any justice. You really will love it. I do. I’m thinking about just ordering tons of Free Jewelry. 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 that Citrine Pendants range anywhere from $50 bucks to a couple hundred bucks. Wow! 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?
I don’t think anyone will complain about the price!
So my Advice is this:
Order some Free Jewelry. It’s Free, Beautiful and Free! And hey, did I say it was FREE?
Order yours today!
It’s now been 4 years since this post has been wrote. Guess what?
It’s NOT FREE anymore!
It was good while it lasted.
Silverjewelryclub is still alive and kicking, and it’s also still featuring cute product and great looking gemstones, but as you can see from the picture below… Prices have gone up! I will say, 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? ;)
