Rent Chopard & Harry Winston Starting At $20 — What?

Unless you have a closet filled with fine jewelry — the kind that can cause temporary blindness because it shines so bright — you probably only break out your real-deal baubles every once in a blue moon. Sure, we can totally get onboard with the dripping-with-diamonds-every-day look, but, for most, those rocks are typically reserved for the big, annual galas, your wedding, or when the president comes to dinner.
However, even if gems are not your idea of a good investment, Haute Vault has created a clever, much more affordable solution and means for test-driving the sartorial equivalent of an Aston Martin. Like similar rental sites, Haute Vault offers up the finest of bijoux and (major) bling for fractions of what these pretties should set you back. Launched today, the membership-only site carries a selection from Chopard, Harry Winston, Bulgari, and plenty of other brands that are pros at making us swoon.
With prices starting at $20, the rentals last for one week and give you the chance to ice yourself without the inevitable frostbite to your wallet. Perfect for the big occasion — no matter what that big occasion might be — we're thinking this service could be the new and ultimate princess-for-a-day type of experience. Except, we'll trade the tiara for a pair of chandelier earrings, thanks.
