Socialites have always turned to jewelry and dress rental services to “borrow” unique pieces for special events. With the introduction of services like those offering one-time rentals (like adornbride.com, with prices from just under a hundred bucks for a piece worth thousands) to subscription services (like borrowedbling.com, with monthly commitments starting at $29.95 for diamond look-a-likes), this service is open to the masses.
Now you all know that I’m not a big fan of the whole “rent-a-luxury”, mostly because the rental fees can be quite high AND it feeds into our obsession with luxury items we can’t afford. However, I can see the value in “borrowing” for your wedding, but do you really need to wear two carat diamond earrings everyday?
