To connect talented designers with women who love and appreciate high quality jewellery. Shaking up the way jewellery is discovered and bought.
GLITZBOX allows you to borrow 3 pieces of jewellery every month and discover new designers! At the end of the month decide which pieces you want to buy and which you'd rather return. Every month you'll get the full subscription charge back as GLITZcredit towards the pieces you just can't live without!
Hello! My name is Tamsin and I'm the founder of GLITZBOX.
GLITZBOX was born out of my passion for working with independent brands and my obsession with jewellery. I started out working within advertising, but really found my ‘calling’ when I discovered the jewellery industry. Working at Notonthehighstreet.com I helped up-and-coming designers who were trying to juggle making beautiful jewellery whilst also building a brand. Although curated marketplaces are great I realised there was an untapped opportunity for a totally new style of platform. One which bridged the gap between online and brick-and-mortar. I wanted to shake up the way women were buying and discovering jewellery and make it a more exciting experience!
I’d noticed the trend for beauty subscription boxes growing in the UK (how can you miss it!). They have become a great way for undiscovered brands to put samples of their product in the hands of thousands of potential customers. With jewellery it’s much harder to give away ‘samples’ and I didn’t want to feature throwaway or poor quality pieces. So I ended up creating a jewellery rental subscription. Where members receive three quality pieces of jewellery, by different emerging designers, to wear for the month. This means members can discover new and exciting brands, test out the jewellery, and only purchase pieces they really love. Designers on the other hand receive invaluable feedback and visibility as they grow.
In December 2016, I decided to leave my full time job and go part-time as a jewellery consultant. I now spend the rest of my time developing the GLITZBOX brand and curating talented jewellery designers to feature. I hope you are as excited as I am about GLITZBOX!
