Why I Buy Almost All of My Jewelry at Kohl’s

Why You Should Buy ALL Your Jewelry at Kohl's! These are GREAT savings tips!!

I love jewelry! It’s such a fun and quick way to take a simple outfit and make it look much cuter or more professional. It’s also a way that I mix things up while still having a very simple wardrobe.

If you watch my Facebook Lives, you already know that my very favorite place in all the world to get great deals on jewelry is the Kohl’s clearance rack. I rarely wear jewelry that comes from anywhere else (unless it’s from my free Rocksbox jewelry!)

Here’s why I love shopping the Kohl’s clearance rack:

1. The Prices Are Fantastic

Seriously, where else can you find cute and durable earrings for as low as $2.80? I know! Kohl’s clearance is the best!

Don’t look at their sale prices; head straight to the clearance section — the one where the jewelry has bright yellow tags and is usually marked down by 80% to 90%. That’s where it’s basically a jewelry goldmine!

Hot Savings Tip: Download the Kohl’s app and log onto the Kohl’s wifi while in-store and check what coupons you have in your wallet on their app. There will usually be some great coupons — often one for 15% off that you can stack with the great clearance deals to make them even better.

2. The Selection is {Usually} Great

You might have to dig a little, but take your time and really start looking through the racks, and looking back behind the jewelry at the front of each rack. Because the more you dig, the more you’ll probably uncover some really great pieces at really great prices.

3. The Quality is Good

I’ve purchased a number of different pieces of jewelry from Kohl’s over the years that I have worn again and again and again. And I’ve never had an issue with quality or a piece of jewelry not holding up well!

    Has anyone with a nickel allergy tried to wear Kohl’s earrings? Just wondering. I know that sometimes earrings won’t be labeled for sensitive ears and yet upon wearing find that they work fine. And works the other way around too. Daughter bought earrings marked for sensitive ears at Claire’s and they were not. It would be great to snag Kohl’s jewelry deals as my daughter and I have had to spend on quality to ensure that earrings don’t cause us problems.

    • I’m quite sensitive to a lot of jewelry and have not had a problem with Kohl’s jewelry. However, Claire’s jewelry — the few times I’ve purchased it — has bothered me.

      Also, I’m often able to find sensitive and nickel-free jewelry on the Kohl’s clearance rack.

      • Heather K. says:

        Oh good! My daughter and I will have to try a pair or two. Frustrating for a young teen who wants to have some styling ears. Thank You.

        • Joyce blair says:

          Kohls❤ has a nice mudd collection in the Jr.department.great for young teens.

        • Ellen says:

          I buy most of my jewelry at Kohl’s clearance racks and have nickle sensitivity . The Chaps brand in particular are marked nickle-free. I don’t even look at other brands of earrings. I have had some tarnish after 6 months to a year. When I spend less than $5.00 I don’t feel as bad about tossing them.

    • J says:

      I put clear nail polish on earrings made from cheap metal. I put it all over the post and any surface that comes in contact with the ears. It helps stop that allergic reaction. Then you can buy lots more jewelry! 🙂

    • Diana Sutton says:

      I work at Kohl’s in the jewelry department. The Lauren Conrad earrings are nickel free. Have the associate scan the item with their device (their Bluebird) – it’ll say it’s if it’s nickel free.

  • Elise says:

    Now I’m inspired to go look at Kohl’s clearance racks! 😀

    I love the idea of jewelry, but end up not wearing a lot of what I *think* I’ll like. 😛 I need an intervention.

    BUT, I recently found a thrift store in town with LOTS of jewelry for super cheap, and it’s been fun, because I don’t feel guilty about buying a piece here and there to try… as long as I can sterilize it first.

  • I’ve not actually purchased any of the jewelry at Kohl’s, I can’t wear earrings from anywhere anymore…even from Zales and the like. BUT necklaces, bracelets and rings are just fine!

    I buy a lot of my husband’s clothes from clearance items at Kohl’s, always a super deal, I guess I will take a peak at their jewelry.

  • I will definitely have to check out Kohls more often – I tend to forget about them for jewelry! I’m somewhat obsessed with Charming Charlie!! 🙂

  • Patricia R. says:

    I just want to add that I rarely buy jewelry as I have plenty but I was looking for some plain black studs and after doing an online search I found the perfect earrings. Simple black stones that were like shiny onyx or black diamonds. They were on sale for $16 and with my 30% off coupon and free shipping, I paid around $11.00 for them. I wear them every single day to work. My cousin kept commenting on them how nice they are and I went and looked and found them on sale again and with my coupon I got another great deal and gifted her a pair. I have since bought two more pairs for the same price to keep as a spare in my purse and a spare pair to gift. While not as cheap as your clearance prices, the jewelry is very affordable. It is worth an online search if you need something specific. Kohl’s can be great if you are willing to look for the bargains.

    I don’t shop much at Kohl’s but the Brand Silver Forrest has nickel free earrings. I wear that brand comfortably

  • Jennifer says:

    Old Navy is great too! They always have so many earrings on clearance. I can find great earrings there for under $5.

  • Cindy Brick says:

    These are pretty…but wouldn’t it be better to purchase jewelry that holds its value?
    A nice pair of silver earrings isn’t that much more than the prices you’re showing here. (I know — daughter is a manager at El Loro, a jewelry/souvenir shop on Boulder, CO’s Pearl Street Mall.) Not only does it look nice — it doesn’t flake or change color or wear out, years from now. If I lose an earring, I add its mate as an embellishment to one of my quilts.
    Not to mention that silver earrings could be converted to cash, for their metal content. (And yes, they have pairs for sensitive ears, too.)
    I have learned over the years that a few pairs of nice earrings not only hold their looks…but their value, too. Just a thought.

    • I think that would be a great option for some people. I’m the kind of person who loves big dangly earrings and I like to have at least 10-15 different pairs that I rotate and then I usually wear them for 2-3 years and then replace them because I’m ready for something new. 🙂 However, I’ve not had any issue with flaking or changing color or wearing out.

    • MA Mom says:

      I agree. Save and invest in nice quality pieces rather than buying junky stuff. So you have fewer items but they will last longer and can be handed down.

      • Shelly says:

        I absolutely agree that a few quality pieces are ideal. However, I have a toddler that pulls on my earrings AND I am notorious for loosing earrings. 🙁 So although I do have a few nicer pieces, I rarely wear them. So it’s fun to have some fun, funky or trendy pieces to play with that I won’t be devastated if they get lost. 😉

        Plus, my teen has started to raid my jewelry box. I’d rather she take pieces that are not costly to replace. 🙂

      • Celes says:

        I love variety with my accessories as they can totally change the look of an outfit. I invest in quality pieces but I still love my “junk”. ?

  • Valerie says:

    I have been buying clearance jewelry at KOHL’S for years and love it too!
    In the last year or so I have found another hot spot for clearance jewelry and it’s Michael’s craft store. They have a clearance area where you can find super bargains for all kinds of jewelry of the same quality and at prices even cheaper than KOHL’S – check it out!

  • Aimee Hadden says:

    I love Charming Charlie’s jewelry. Their clearance is usually great too!

  • Lindsey says:


  • Angela says:

    Target currently has Sugarfix by BaubleBar (a cheaper version of their jewelry that usually sells at places like Nordstrom). I found a cute, fashionable necklace for spring.

  • Anna says:

    My daughter and sister love to shop KMart jewelry. They’ve found tons of $1 necklaces, earrings, and rings. There isn’t a Kohl’s nearby so Kmart is an alternative (for those who still have a Kmart).

  • Mari says:

    Just want to comment that I completely agree! I love Kohl’s jewelry and only buy on clearance. I have gotten such steals for beautiful pieces. I only buy necklaces and bracelets, no earrings. I just bought 6 new necklaces a couple weeks ago, and got them all for next to nothing. I love Kohl’s jewelry!

  • Gina says:

    I have been buying from Kohl’s jewellery clearance for many, many years. This is my guilty pleasure. Mainly Napier and Trifari brand ear rings and if the price is right, bangles and chains. I have given them as gifts too and everyone loves them. Sure, I come out like a bandit after a 30% discount on top of clearance. I go after Christmas and during end of season sales.

  • Amy says:

    Icing & Charlotte Russe has inexpensive cute necklaces.

  • Kerry Hunt says:

    I get most of my jewelry at Kohls clearance rack too, Crystal! I check every time I’m in the store and think about upcoming birthdays and Christmas for friends and family. I’ve gotten some amazing deals! And Kohlsl return policy is so great that clearnace items can also be returned.

  • Brittany Terui says:

    My favorite is buying Starfish Project jewelry made by women rescued out of human trafficking and exploitation. Amazing organization and bonus, their old jewelry goes on super sale a few times a year! Their jewelry can also be bought on Kohl’s’ website and in select Kohl’s stores! I personally know the founder of Starfish Project and know the impact these jewelry purchases are making!
