Inside the Ippolita Sample Sale

Considering the price of costume jewelry, it's hard to turn up the opportunity to shop Ippolita's sample sale at a 65% cut off of retail. The Soiffer Haskin sale started Saturday but many of those early shoppers suffered a two hour wait to get inside. Sunday's shoppers faired a much better luck-- no wait and there was still plenty of merchandise.



Prices started at $20 for an arrangement of bangles and run through over $6000 for a gold necklaces with diamonds. A majority of items are 65% off but there was a small selection of jewelry for 70% off. The assortment in the higher discount category was so undesirable that it's better just ignore the whole category. The newest Ippolita designs were discounted 50% off.

A sterling silver necklace similar to the one shown here with different stones was marked $113, this exact style was $193 from $550. There were lots of Glamazon hammered bangles in both silver and gold, along with lots of jewels with colored semi-precious gems. We couldn't resist these rose large teardrop earrings that were about $200 from about $600. Equally attractive, were these gold hoop earrings with diamonds, which came out to approximately $3300 from $5500.

If you're looking for the very best deals, we suggest that you wait to shop until the last day. Last season they offered shoppers an extra 15% off. Now, that's a jewel of a deal.
