Borrowed Bling: Fine Jewelry for Rent

We rent cars, tools, technology, tuxedos and holiday houses. So why wouldn’t we rent luxe gowns and fine jewelry for those days we want to be our best and brightest?

 

Blame our desires on the red carpet, designer-filled runways, busy social schedules and brides with a specific vision of their wedding day. Hollywood has always had an intimate relationship with the world’s finest jewelers and we’ve grown accustomed to watching stars parade borrowed Bulgari, Chopard, and Harry Winston at award nights, movie openings and music events. Endless images of international fashion weeks pass before our eyes and for some, fresh looks and deep closets are de rigueur to meet the demands of a busy private and professional life.

So when companies came along who catered to that need/want with luxury jewels, watches and statement jewelry, it seemed like a match made in heaven. Suddenly, by renting for a fraction of the purchase price, we didn’t have to settle for knock-offs; our red carpet aspirations could meet our real-life expectations.
