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 Sunday's shoppers still had plenty of merchandise from which to shop. (You can click here to see a few more pictures from our shopping trip.)
During our Sunday sale inspection we found an assortment of best selling items in gold, silver and silver plated with rose gold. All the merchandise is discounted 65% off retail. The original tags are attached and a sales associate will arm you with a calculator if one is requested.
While shopping we found 18k Lollipop earrings for $1050 from about $3000 and 18k-gold five station Lollipop bangles were $700 from $2000. A similar style with 8 stones in sterling silver is $228 from $650. All of these Ippolita iconic styles are available in a wide variety of semi-precious colored stones.
In addition to the classic assortment of jewelry, the sale also includes a range of leather wrap brackets with silver or gold hardware. These styles are marketed towards men but we think they still resonate more with a woman's style. A gold version is priced at $450 from $1000 and a silver style is about $100 from almost $295.
If you're looking for the very best deals, we suggest that you wait until the last day to shop . During past sales shoppers were offered an extra 15% off. Now, that's a jewel of a deal.
