Stella and Dot is another direct selling company. They specialize in jewelry, which they describe as a step above costume jewelry although not quite fine jewelry.

Is it worth it?
There are quite a few people who are happy selling Stella & Dot, and the jewelry is fantastic! I think the $59 renewal fee every year isn’t so great since I haven’t seen too many other direct sales companies that charge this. I guess it just depends. Their jewelry is nicer than Premier, but Premier gives a better commission rate. On the flip side, Stella and Dot is fairly new, which means that there aren’t too many consultants out there to give a person who signed up competition.
