Cate & Chloe Jewelry Subscription Box Review – September 2014
Cate & Chloe is a monthly high-end jewelry subscription box. Each month they send you two jewelry pieces. (They used to mail them separately, but now you get everything in one box a month). You also can email them jewelry preferences and they will do their best to customize the box just for you.
The Subscription Box: Cate & Chloe VIP
The Cost: $39.99 a month with free shipping (Save more with longer length subscriptions)
The Products: $200 worth of Cate & Chloe jewelry every month. (2 pieces shipped separately throughout the month). You also get a bonus piece in your first month!

Each box comes with a card which details each jewelry piece and it’s retail value.
Chevron 3-Piece Bangle – Retail Value $89
I was surprised to see color in the box this month! (Usually Cate & Chloe only sends silver, gold, or rose-gold pieces). On the card this bangle set is listed as the “statement piece,” so maybe this is a new trend they are trying out.
Michaela “Gift” Bracelet – Retail Value $99
This piece is well-made, but I’m not really feeling the black stripes with the rose gold, so I’ll probably swap this. (This is listed as the classic piece).
Verdict: I like that they mixed up their styling this month and sent a “statement piece.” If you’ve been subscribing for several months then there’s a chance you might have all the silver/gold jewelry you want, so this helps keep the subscription interesting. I wish that they would mix of the category of jewelry more though. It would have been more interesting to get a necklace and a bracelet this month instead of two bracelets. (And last month’s box was all earrings).
While I don’t think anyone pays the retail prices listed for these pieces, they are well-made and in my opinion definitely worth the $40 a month. What do you think of Cate & Chloe?
