When it came to the understanding of accessories making an outfit, I didn’t realize this key lesson in life until a few years into college. But when I discovered what a good statement earring could do for an outfit – It became priority. I have a few go-to’s for good jewelry – And honestly, the only jewelry I have worn for the past five years has been from J.Crew. So when Rocksbox reached out to be apart of their Influencer squad I was hesitant about a subscription service for curated jewelry. You’re probably questioning what about that sentence was my hesitation – and you’re right. Curated pieces of jewelry sent to your door every month to try-out? Where could I go wrong?
Rocksbox is pretty similar to a lot of subscription services that handpick their collections for you through questions about your personal style and preferences. After their quick quiz about your jewelry habits, a stylist picks out three pieces for you to try-out – and within days, you have the sweetest little surprise at your door.
Let’s begin with their packaging. Patricio and I are suckers for good branding, and when something is packaged pretty – We’re almost automatically in. So the surprise of a navy box with pink ribbon and gold lettering was almost too much to handle – Until I opened it and saw the ‘Hey Ranya!” note card inside. This is so personalized to your tastes that it’s hard to resist not picking all three to keep. I was super lucky to receive a pair of Kendra Scott Danielle Earrings in Rose Quartz. For someone who wears a lot of pink, Rose Quartz is a dream. I also was pleasantly surprised about the Gorjana necklaces I received. The Aurora necklace was by far my favorite – I love a long pendant, and you can throw this over a t-shirt to elevate your outfit on the days you’re not feeling like making getting dressed a production. The Knox Bar necklace was a little too delicate for my tastes, but I know a lot of girls who would be a perfect fit for the minimalism it brings.
The best part is I can keep what I like (And get a discounted price with the ‘Shine Credit’ you receive), or just send back the pieces that were not meant to be. How easy has jewelry shopping become?! This trial method gives you a chance to experiment – See what works and what doesn’t, and after getting more than enough comments on your new gems from your pals at work, you’re going to want to add them to your collection.
