My RocksBox Experience

I love jewelry.  If I don’t have any on I can’t leave the house.  I’m always on the hunt for unique, fun pieces, so when I heard about RocksBox I was intrigued and wanted to learn more!

RocksBox is a jewelry subscription service where you can receive 3 pieces of jewelry, wear them as long as you want, and then return them for a new batch of jewelry.  It’s the Netflix of the jewelry world! Loving that I would always have the opportunity to wear different jewelry frequently I signed up for the $19 monthly option.

The first step is to fill out a survey so your jewelry curator knows what to pick out for you from their select designers.  I took the survey and the key things for me are silver, bold and colorful options.  I like necklaces, earrings and bracelets and earrings are my number one go-to accessory.

Within 3 days of signing up my first box arrived and the anticipation of what could be in there was running wild.  It came in a nice box with a bow, and gifts like that are always fun to open.  Here is what I got and my thoughts:

I love wearing statement necklaces and when I saw this UrbanGem necklace I loved the style, but the colors weren’t as vibrant as shown in the photo.  I wanted something with a little more pop, and I tried hard to find something to wear this with in my wardrobe.  I do give them points for keeping it in the silver family.

I was not expecting to get 2 necklaces, so when I saw this Lotus Jewelry Studio necklace, I was disappointed.  It is simple enough to wear with many things, but it wasn’t what I was looking for.  Again, glad that it was silver!

My third piece was this Gorjana Chaplin bracelet.  I requested chunky bracelets, so this was not what I was expecting.  It’s a dainty simple accessory that I almost thought wouldn’t fit my arm.  Glad it’s silver, but no cigar.

Overall, my first RocksBox did not meet my expectations based on the survey I took. They do provide a comment card where you can rate the jewelry and state what you would like in the next one. I stated that I want bright, colorful, silver bold jewelry and I look forward to seeing that in the next box.  I also like that they include information on each piece so you can learn more about what you are wearing.  I applaud them for this fun and savvy concept, but the style survey should serve as a clear representation of what one wants.

Stay tuned for a review of my next box!
