Upon subscribing you’re asked to take a “style survey” so Rocksbox knows what jewelry you like or dislike. There’s also a Wish List page where you can browse through their collection and select any favorite pieces that you want to try. Rocksbox will then aim to send you one piece from your Wish List in each set.

You can also leave your stylist feedback on the pieces so that she can better understand your tastes for future sets.

My package arrived two business days after receiving their shipping email.

Each piece of jewelry comes carefully wrapped in plastic inside its own pouch.

The box includes a prepaid return label (make sure to keep this and the original packaging for returns), a few cards, and a slip that details what I received in this set.

rocksbox-september-2016-ring

Gorjana Mara Cobra Ring – $45 (Cost to keep: $38)

This is an open ring with 18k gold plating. I like that the design is snakelike but also artfully abstract.

Closeup of the ring. The etchings are gorgeous. Each side of the band has a different design– one side has crosshatches and the other has raised dots.

rocksbox-september-2016-necklace

Gorjana Chloe Mini Necklace in Gold – $55 (Cost to keep: $46)

This is another beautiful 18k gold plated piece from Gorjana. This is my kind of necklace. The tiny coins give off a bohemian vibe but pairs well with a variety of styles. I’m a simple jewelry kind of gal so I like to wear it on its own, but this would also look gorgeous layered with other strands.

rocksbox-september-2016-bracelet

A.V. Max Twist Cuff in Gold – $25 (Cost to keep: $21)

This is a sleek, sturdy bracelet with a twist design. Again, the style is so me! I am constantly anxious that cuffs will slip off my wrists in the middle of the day. Thankfully it was not an issue with this cuff. I wore it out to dinners and got multiple compliments!

I’m channeling Sailor Moon with this pose. The A.V. Max cuff hangs nicely on my wrist.

Here’s the whole gang! They do a great job spicing up my otherwise simple outfit.

A closeup of the Gorjana necklace. It’s a taste of boho, but not too much!

Verdict: I was very pleased with my Rocksbox set this month. My stylist always picks out pieces that match my aesthetic and look gorgeous when layered together. My favorite was the Gorjana Mara Cobra ring. I also swooned over the A.V. Max cuff. The cost to keep after my $10 credit is only $11, but since I don’t wear bracelets often I couldn’t justify keeping it.

I’m happy to report that the turnover rate is just as fast as last month’s. Rocksbox began selecting my next set within one day of receiving shipment info on my old set. I received shipping info on the new set soon after and expect to have it in hand in two business days. I can’t wait!

  1. I tried this out for a month for free and really enjoyed it. I don’t know that I would ever purchase something though, as spending money on used pieces isn’t something I’d typically do. I was able to get three sets during my month and generally 1 item per box was a miss (typically the one that the stylist picked). It was fun though and I will consider revisiting again when my finances are in order.

  2. Regarding the new Sale section, I don’t know if I’d recommend it. All sales are final, there is little info on each piece (same as in Wishlist descriptions, although they are getting better about that), and the pieces are used and described as having visible flaws, small stones missing, etc. I would personally only buy something you’ve already seen in your regular box so you know what to expect. I did buy a few things, sticking to those under $35 to minimize the risk, and was generally happy with what I got. But one bracelet is tiny and will have to be gifted, and I will have to lengthen a necklace before I can wear it comfortably. That is my own fault as no lengths were given, but the style appeared as if it would be longer. Given the unknown condition of what you are getting, I think the prices are high.

    • You make some good points, I’ll have to check out the sale section in more detail. Thanks, tpop!
