Why You Should Buy Early This Holiday Season 2021

With the weather cooling down and getting crisp, the up-coming holiday season lingers just around the corner. While fun costumes, scary movies, and all things spooky for Halloween may be on your mind now, you may also want to start thinking of the gifts that you want to give this year if you celebrate any of the November / December holidays. We highly encourage our customers to BUY EARLY this season.


We recommend to buy your gifts earlier than normal for a couple of reasons.

  1. You may have already heard in the news that retailers are experiencing major inventory shortages on popular gifts and everyday items due to the pandemic’s effects across the globe. The jewelry industry is no exception and has also seen their fair share of shortages. We have been dealing with this situation over the last year and expect that the jewelry supply will get even tighter towards the end of the year.
  2. Besides the pandemic, Hanukkah starts early this year on November 28, so gift giving begins earlier this year.
  3. Shipping carriers are urging customers to send their gifts sooner rather than later since shipping traffic is way up currently.

With this anticipation, we took steps to prepare for this up-coming holiday season to help offer the items you want. We still recommend that you buy your gifts earlier than normal this year.

What does that mean for you?

To get into the holiday spirit, we will start offering SPECIAL HOLIDAY DEALS EARLY, starting some time in October. Be sure to sign up for our e-newsletters and text messages to get alerts on these offers, including exclusive offers for our subscribers.

Browse our holiday gift guide now and plan your gift giving list. Check out our Holiday Gift Guide here.

We hope we can add some cheer with our up-coming offers for the rest of the year!

Adult Signature Required Shipping

We understand that you want to avoid having any of your packages stolen, especially when ordering jewelry gifts for this holiday season.  With the ever increasing rise of online shopping, many thieves unfortunately scout porches and mailboxes for shipped packages, especially during the high-traffic holidays.  Package thefts are up 50% since last year, according to CBS News.  Rest assured, all of our packages require an adult signature with the exception of standard shipping, which may require an adult signature.

Often times, thieves feel indifferent to what's actually inside the packages -- the interest is in the resale value.  If your item isn't worth reselling, well, they haven't lost much.  They can always find someone who's willing to take them off their hands or even return them for refunds so that you'll never see either your item or your money.  Though many package snatchers were caught on home surveillance videos, others remain at large. They sneak onto the properties in any guise they can, some of them even bold enough to follow UPS trucks to their destinations.  However, with adult signature confirmation, we know that our packages will be delivered directly to the hands of our customers with little chance of anyone snatching them before they receive them.  We stand by our products and want to provide our customers with a quality experience.  That means giving you delivery that you can be confident about.

With signature confirmation, you know your package is going exactly where it's intended to go -- into your hands or trusted individual to sign for your. All of our packages that use 2-Day Air and Next-Day Air shipping methods require adult signatures upon delivery.  Standard shipping may or may not require an adult signature. Concerned that your package might not be coming with a signature confirmation?  Contact our customer service department by phone during business hours or email to check on your shipment.  Have no worries about stolen packages from your front steps when ordering with us when choosing our air shipping methods.  Click here to learn more about our shipping methods.

Our Gold Chain Jewelry Comes From...

We’ve gotten a couple of questions on where our gold chain necklaces and bracelets come from, so we'd like to take this opportunity to answer those questions.  Most of our gold necklaces are made in the USA from imported gold, and the other place is Italy.  In the past, gold chains were notably from Italy.  Italian-made necklaces were a sign of prestige and quality because the designers created jewelry with the utmost craftsmanship.  Some Italian designers went to the US and brought their expertise to the states.  Due to regulations, duties and taxes are applied to gold jewelry made in Italy, making them more expensive.  Our US suppliers use similar machines, techniques, and designs, so their gold chain jewelry are comparable to Italy’s yet cheaper.  The quality of USA-crafted gold links is similar to Italy’s quality.

Without the associated fees in shipping or the tariffs and taxes involved in imported jewelry, you get the best price without sacrificing style.  These gold necklaces and bracelets are constructed and manufactured in the US using imported gold with ultimate care and the highest of standards, ensuring durable jewelry that will serve you for years. Customer support is easy to deal with because the necklace manufacturer is located here in the US as opposed to overseas. When you want the ultimate alternative to Italian gold links without the expensive price tag and excessive tariffs, choose our gold chains.

If you have any questions about our gold chains, give our customer service department a call during business hours or email. As a family-owned company based in Los Angeles, we are happy to offer our customers gold chain jewelry crafted in the United States.

Our New Jewelry Mobile Shopping Experience

We are excited to announce the launch of our new mobile site at GoldenMine!  The trend of people shopping and browsing the internet on their handheld devices keeps growing.  Since our mobile views increased over 50% this year compared to last year and currently make up over 35% of our total visits, we wanted to offer you an enhanced jewelry-buying experience on smart phones and tablets. These devices have smaller screens, and full desktop computer websites are much larger than those screens, making customers scroll, pinch, and zoom out too often.  In order to make mobile shopping easier to use for our customers, we wanted the mobile site design to have a similar look and feel as the full version and better fit smaller-sized screens. 


Mainly, the mobile version will be similar to the main body sections of our desktop version without sidebars.  The font styles, images, and colors are similar, so you can navigate the site more straightforwardly and easily recognize the categories and information you want to find as you would on a desktop or laptop computer.  You can also click on the SHOP button located in the top navigation bar to find all the major jewelry categories, such as chain necklaces and rings.

With a simplified version of our full site, we designed the mobile site to reduce scrolling up and down and the need to zoom in and out or scroll left and right.

Our mobile site takes less time to download, so it’s faster to use than viewing our full site on your handheld device.

The checkout page is mobile-friendly with larger font sizes and buttons to place orders more easily by your smart phone or tablet.

The full site version can still be accessed with handheld devices by clicking on the button at the footer of each page.

Preview of GoldenMine's mobile site

When you are looking for gold jewelry or any other fine accessories on your smartphone or tablet at GoldenMine, we hope you enjoy your mobile shopping experience in our new mobile-friendly site.

Top Women's Jewelry to Wear at Job Interviews

We're in the midst of college and high school graduation season, which means many graduates are looking to begin a new career and preparing for interviews.  If you are a female new grad, know that while practicing how you answer questions is important, it is also significant to look your best professionally while showing a bit of your personality in a positively memorable way.  Jewelry is one of the best ways to show your personality and complete your interview attire.  

What Types of Jewelry Women Should Wear at Interviews
When referring to jewelry, the rule of thumb is to think conservatively, so choose simple, non-controversial pieces.  However, what jewelry you wear depends on what people wear in your industry (read top 10 jewelry to wear at work).  For example, if you are seeking a nursing job, nurses are not allowed to wear elaborate, big accessories that can interfere with their work, so stick to small stud or hoop earrings and simple necklaces.  If you are seeking a creative job, you can wear something a little bit more elaborate, colorful, and/or artistic without causing distractions.  Avoid off-putting accessories, such as jewelry with political and religious themes and big, noisy, and dangling items. Keep in mind that you want to enhance your look and have your interviewer focus on you instead of your jewelry.

Earrings – Since earrings are the closest piece of jewelry to the focal area - your face - avoid dangling and chandelier earrings which may detract interviewers from listening to what you are saying. Small stud earrings, 6mm width max, and hoop earrings, 1-inch diameter max, are generally safe choices. Find styles that fit within those parameters.

Silver Grey Pearl Studs
Open Knot Studs
Block Diamond Studs

Silver Grey Pearl Studs >
Pearl studs are classic, and grey is a nice neutral color that goes beyond the standard black and white colors.

Open Knot Studs >
You can choose to show your fashion sense and personality by picking a tasteful, fashionable style of studs. These earrings feature an elegant, open knot design.

Block Diamond Studs >
If you want to add a touch of elegance and subtle sparkle to your interview attire, choose these princess cut diamond stud earrings.

Small Gold Round Hoops
Faceted Gold Hoops
Red & White CZ Huggies
Small Gold Round Hoops >
Polished round hoop earrings are always classic, especially at this size. These hoops are graceful and refined.
If you want more style than the classic hoops, these gold hoop earrings with an attractive faceted design make an excellent choice.
You can add color subtly with these huggie earrings. The white and ruby-red CZs complement each other beautifully without giving off an overpowering feel.
Bracelets – Similar to earrings, thinner bracelets work best in interviews.  Consider wearing a single bracelet at most on each wrist. If you wear more than one, especially bangles, you can make a lot of noise.
Yellow Gold Open Link Bracelet
White Gold Circle Link Bracelet
This oval link bracelet has a gorgeous, refined design that complements a professional wardrobe. Plus, it is lightweight and unfussy, which will keep from diverting your attention away from interviewers.
Link bracelets are on trend. Made with decorative circle links, this white gold bracelet fits the fashion trends in an interview setting.
Gold Bangle Bracelet
Yellow CZ Tennis Bracelet
With a classic solid round shape, this 3mm yellow gold round bangle makes a simple yet chic choice to wear at interviews. Remember to only stick to one bangle per arm to avoid making unnecessary sounds.
Tennis bracelets are also timeless. With the combination of refinement and golden yellow color, this bracelet livens up your interview look in sophisticated manner.
Necklaces – While statement necklaces are currently trendy, modest necklaces are still recommended to wear in interviews.  You can still find attractive necklaces that complement your fashion sense in a simpler scale.
Yellow Gold Open Link Bracelet
White Gold Infinity Necklace
Alluring with finesse, this 14K yellow gold Y-necklace is appropriate to wear during interviews without causing much distractions.
Pendants and charms can be another way to show more of your personality. Just remember to choose ones that are small and non-controversial, such as this floating infinity charm necklace.
Swiss Blue Topaz Solitaire Necklace
Peridot & Lemon Quartz Pendant Necklace
The color blue has a pleasing effect during interviews. The simplicity of this necklace and stunning Swiss blue color makes an elegant choice to wear at interviews.
The green and yellow colors of the peridot and quartz stones delightfully complement each other in sophisticated way. This silver necklace makes a charming choice for interviewees who want to add color to their attire.

The process of finding a job can be daunting.  You have so many things to prepare and figure out.  One thing that can help with the process is to have your accessories in place, so you have less to worry about on the day of your interview.  Just remember to choose jewelry that is simple, non-provocative, and industry-appropriate as well as shows a glimpse of your personality.

Good Luck Charms - What Makes Them Lucky

This Saint Patrick's Day, get the luck of the Irish no matter who you are with time honored good luck charms. From traditional four leaf clovers to lucky horseshoes, popular tokens of good luck make a great jewelry choice for good karma in the new year. Lucky charm jewelry gets its roots in superstitious and religious imagery that people have respected for years, and may even bring you excellent fortune.

Good luck charms come in many different forms, not just the four-leaf clover.  Italian horns, horseshoes, ladybugs, and elephants are also popular symbols that are believed to bring about great fortune, but how did these beliefs come about?

Four Leaf Clover

The rare four-leaf clover, also known as a shamrock, is a natural variation of the common three leaf clover and has been prized for bringing good luck for centuries. The tradition comes from an old Irish rhyme that labels each leaf for the following positive attributes: 1) faith, 2) hope, 3) love, and 4) luck. Shamrocks are a common motif in clothing and jewelry, which make a fun, whimsical, and flirty statement.


Italian Horn Pendant

The delicate and stylish shape of the Italian horn pendant is a popular jewelry choice. This traditional lucky charm has been used for centuries to ward off the negative effects of the evil eye and help keep the wearer safe from harmful intentions. The horn is also a sacred symbol of the moon goddess and brings protection.



Traditionally made from iron, horseshoes are some of the most important transportation technology invented before the automobile. Their iron construction is part of what makes them a popular good luck token since in folklore, iron is believed to ward away evil spirits. The simplicity of the horseshoe design makes them easy to wear as lucky jewelry.



As bright little beetles, ladybugs greatly benefit farmers, which gives them their lucky status.  These insects eat other pests that harm farmland without injuring the plants, so while some cultures consider them auspicious, they also believe that squashing ladybugs can bring ill fortune. Their stunning bright red color and cheerful look makes them a cute and quirky spring jewelry choice.



In Feng Shui, Hinduism, and other beliefs around the world, elephants are considered a symbol of strength, protection, and good luck - more specifically with the trunk up.  On the other hand, elephants with their trunks down are considered bad luck.  The reasons of why they became symbols of luck varies.  One of them stems from the Hindu elephant-headed god, Ganesha, honored as the god of luck.  Furthermore, the trunk up may stem from the US belief that a horseshoe faced upwardly keeps the luck from running out. These proud and protective animals make a bold and powerful fashion statement and bring good fortune and courage to the wearer.

As mentioned in our previous blog on what jewelry to wear during the Year of the Ram 2015, wearing a gold elephant pendant would be auspicious this year.

Click here to see our collection of good luck charms in gold and silver. From horseshoes to Italian horns, these pendants may just be the spark you want to add luck in your life.
