I love technology. We can talk on the phone while seeing others on the opposite end. We can communicate with friends across the world and stay in touch through social media. And now, there’s an application that analyzes your personality and declares what kind of jewelry your husband/mom/friend/boyfriend/sister/anyone-else-who-loves-you should buy you.
Blue Nile, the largest online retailer of certified diamonds and fine jewelry, has just come out with a brand new platform that uses a scientific algorithm to analyze your responses and Facebook data to identify your fashion personality. It’s called Leave Nothing To Chance because, appropriately, when it comes to jewelry, you don’t want your gift-givers crossing their finger and hoping you’ll love what they buy you. When it comes to jewelry, let’s be real: hope is not enough.
You can find out if you’re a “Jet Setter,” “Queen Bee,” or “Understated Beauty” in order to see what kinds of jewelry pieces match that title. It will then issue a personalized infographic about your style along with a few gift recommendations, which you can customize and share on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter. Or, you know, just absolutely leave open on your sweetie’s computer — OOPS! There are 30 different personalities and it is surprisingly accurate!
Here’s what my results look like and I pretty much agree.
By now you should know I’m a big fan of comedy. If people or activities don’t make me laugh, forget about it; I’m done! But the Leave Nothing To Chance app made me laugh SO HARD. And I wasn’t even drinking!
Each question is worded very casually and fun, so it doesn’t feel like you’re taking the SAT (which would have been horrible for me because the guy behind me during the SAT had the most horrific nose whistle and I was distracted the entire time. Especially on the math section. Hmmm. But hey! I went to college and it all worked out. GO CATS!). It’s fun to be guided through a survey that asks tongue-in-cheek lifestyle questions, such as, “Skinny dipping at night with friends or a good book and a warm bath?”
After you answer each casual and fun question, there’s a segue statement and that’s where the comedy gold is. Snarky, sassy statements about my personality made my peacock feathers present themselves and I was satisfied with the zingers.
I would say you should have fun with this app just for the sass factor alone, but that’s not the only reason.
Those who participate will be entered to win a three carat diamond tennis bracelet. The winner will be contacted by email on Dec. 30.
Did you read that right?
You guys. You could win diamonds.
OK, hear me out.
If you use the app — and you should because it’s more fun than a lot of the other things you do to procrastinate on the computer — you can automatically be entered to win a three carat diamond tennis bracelet.
One more time in case you’re squinting from the idea of shiny things landing in your lap for free:
You could possibly win a three carat diamond tennis bracelet.
I don’t know how to make this clearer!
BUT, because I love you so much and because Blue Nile thinks that The Wedding Yentas is the best Jewish wedding blog ever, all of you get discount codes to buy stuff. Discount codes are seriously my favorite thing in the world. Every time I buy things online, I Google a discount code for the store just in case I can save more cash. It’s always so empowering when I’ve searched high and low to find a code and it actually works! No searching high and low here. Just straight ahead. Or in the next paragraph.
