Wantable Accessories Subscription Box Review – May 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Wantable Accessories is one of the three Wantable subscription options. Each month they typically send you three items in categories like jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, etc. You can heavily customize this box by picking out which categories of items you want, and what styles and materials you prefer. (Lately I’ve been requesting only scarves and hair accessories – but I recently opened up to watches and necklaces too.)

Wantable accepts returns on any item in the box, so in the review I list out the retail prices from the invoice and “my price” – the price I would be refunded if I returned that item.

Wantable sent me this box to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Here are the categories I picked out. You must pick at least two categories for your likes or loves. You will never get any items on your dislike list.

Lily Ivory Scarf – Retail Price $24 (My Price $11.43)

This scarf isn’t very wide (it measures 7.5 inches across), but it’s double layered, so it has enough coverage without adding too much weight. It’s a good fit for Spring!

Sabrina Necklace – Retail Value $26 (My Price $12.38)

This is by far my favorite item in the box. I love the mix of neon yellow, and I can’t wait to pair this with a simple black dress.

London Necklace – Retail Value $17 (My Price $8.10)

I like this piece but I’m not sure if I love it. The pendant piece might be a little too bold for me. Here is a close up:

Megan Necklace – Retail Value $17 (My Price $8.10)

This isn’t for me. I appreciate the layered look, but the strands don’t seem to form a cohesive look to me.

Verdict: This isn’t my favorite Wantable Accessories box, but I do like 3 out of 4 of the pieces, so that’s pretty good. I think it’s time to mix of my style profile to get sunglasses for summer in the next box.

What do you think of Wantable Accessories?

  1. Can anyone do a comparison with Bezel Box. I just subscribed since I love statement pieces which this box supposedly delivers. However, I can’t find many reviews and none whatsoever by Liz 🙁

  2. I tried Bijoux for about three months and ended up canceling – I liked some of the statement pieces, but found that almost everything was gold-toned, and that’s just not for me. I like a little gold here and there, but I much prefer silver and, from reviews I’ve read, etc, it seems like that’s a rarity in the Bijoux Box world. I just received my very first Wantable Accessories box and I’m smitten – I received a couple of very simple, classic pieces in silver (earrings and a necklace), a pair of fun boho earrings that I wouldn’t ordinarily pick but that I really like nonetheless, and a fun large-faced watch with a yellow band, perfect for the season. Plus, I really enjoy having more control over what will be in the box – I think that’s a huge bonus.

  3. I can write a quick comparison that’s been requested – I’ve done both for a good period of time, but recently dropped Wantable. I liked them both, but for different reasons. Wantable seemed “younger” – I’m 36 so take that as you will – and most of what I got were huge earrings, mixed metals, statement metal jewelry, and chunky rings.

    I have only doing Bioux box twice, but like it much better, Likewise I was afraid of all statement but this month was a delicate, modern three strand necklace, a simple pair of studs to match, a more ornate silver long pendant with dazzle and stones in an oval shape, and a teal ombre scarf in light fabric. I loved this box. Last month was a delicate teal layered necklace. Mine broke on first wear and they replaced no questions asked. The other pieces were a abalone pendant and a long jewel pendant. Those were more flashy, but each month has always had something delicate. Wantable felt too punk. All have been a good blend of statement and delicate so far. Hoping this continues! Wantable is more customizable, but the jewelry at Bijoux seems higher quality. Hope that helps!

    • Thanks for the comparison!

    • Thank you so much for the comparison Alison! I wanted the May Bijoux box loved everything in it, so I just signed up for Bijoux. Cancelled the Wantable Accessories for now.

  4. May will be my second Wantable Accessories box. I was really happy with April. The only piece I didn’t love was a cuff bracelet and that is more my fault than the stylist (turns out I don’t like cuffs as much as I thought I do). I thought about trying Bijoux Box but it seems like they send out statement necklaces a lot and I’m not a fan of statement pieces. Can someone compare Wantable Accessories to Bijoux Box and Cate and Chloe?

  5. I agree with Julie. I really like Wantable, I think their customer service is one of the best out there, but I have usually been underwhelmed by the accesories box. The pieces I got looked nice but so cheap…I was expecting a Bauble Bar quality and it is not the case. After 4 boxes I cancelled.

  6. April was my first month with the accessories box and while it was nice and I’ll probably use all the items eventually , I didn’t feel it was worth $76 (the value they gave it), even $40 seemed a little high to me for costume jewelry that was about Target or Walmart quality.
    Bijoux box vs Wantable Accessories? I would be interested in seeing a comparison between these 2 boxes since they are about the same cost with 3-4 items. I’m thinking about trying Bijoux next.
