Rocksbox 6 and 7

Happy Thursday everyone, I hope the week is treating you well.  I want to start this post and tell you, I am in no way compensated for my opinion in this post. I just wanted to share with you one of my favorite subscription boxes today πŸ™‚ and going forward, I hope you enjoy.

I recently subscribed to Rocksbox – if you’ve not heard of it before it’s a jewelry rental service much like Gwynnie Bee (later post) that for $19 a month, allows you to chose jewelry pieces and builds a set around the pieces you pick. I thought this would be a great tester for me since I do one of two things with my jewelry, I either 1. Pick the same pieces and wear them over and over again, usually smaller “heirloom” pieces that have nothing to do with the outfit, don’t necessarily complement it and usually get swallowed up by whatever else I’m wearing or…..2. Find the same items to buy over and over again while still thinking I don’t have any jewelry to wear, does that sound familiar? Say capsule jewelry wardrobe? No but really what do you do? If you know me from my blog you know I love to shop, and I really love to try new things. Because of that I belong to a few subscription services and happened upon Rocks Box as a suggestion from one of the other services I use, I received my first month for free and in that time received two boxes in the first month. On average I receive two fresh boxes each month, to wear, buy if I like, then send back and get anew.

     

 
I have to tell you there were hits and misses with these boxes, and one of my main gripes surprised me! Well a little at least, both boxes ended up having really delicate pieces, and I think it’s really hard to wear them in the winter. We all have bulkier outfits and sometimes bolder prints and I think they get lost in the item.  Here’s the breakdown for both.

Box 6 total cost – $ 240

Gorjana – Mikva Mini Plate Necklace – $65 – this has the potential to be a great summer necklace but I felt it was the wrong length and too delicate for my winter sweaters and bulky tops.  

Gorjana – Taner split long necklace – $80 – again this had the potential but not in the winter.

Olivia and grace – Lorena Earrings in Purple Chalcedony – available through Rocksbox – $95. These were fun earrings, I wore them the most out of this set, although big they were light enough to wear through the day but, my ears did get sore by evening.  

On a whole I wore the earrings twice and sent the box back rather quickly.

Box 7 total cost – $ 154

Wanderlust and Co – Zig Zag Bracelet – available through Rocksbox – $29 – I felt a little like a Harry Potter fan with this bracelet and it was a little off putting to me, plus it was a little long to wear with my watch to look right and I was afraid I would tug it on my shirt and break the chain.   

Kendra Scott –  Rayne Silver Necklace in Slate – $80 – Kendra Scott has to be my new favorite designer, every time I get one of her pieces I absolutely love it and want to wear it for the rest of my life.  This necklace was no different and I wore it out while I had the box. 

Jenny Bird – Flagstaff earrings in Silver – available through Rocksbox – $45 – these were fun earrings although I have no idea how they made the set I didn’t think they went with the necklace very well and although the lines may have complimented the bracelets, since I didn’t feel comfortable wearing the bracelet it wasn’t a huge selling point for me.

Again Loved the necklace and wore it 3 or 4 times during the week or so I kept this box, then sent everything back and on to the next one.
