There’s a style survey offered at sign-up, where you can tell Redbird Vintage Box what you like and dislike. I was really excited to try this subscription because I too am a lover of fashion and vintage but do not enjoy the thrill of the hunt. So, the idea of receiving a personalized box of vintage finds sounded very intriguing!

My box included this personalized typed letter referencing the items they sent and why. I am continued to be impressed by how they not only reference my preferences but also the previous package sent to me! There’s nothing better than when you can build your wardrobe with complimenting accessories, and they conveyed this detail, which I greatly appreciate. They also included a business card noting where Redbird Vintage Box can be found on social media.

Pendant Necklace

The first piece of jewelry I opened from the linen pouch is this lovely pendant. The pendant itself has ornate gold details and attached to a thin chain. The painting is illustrated on what appears to be porcelain enamel and is quite traditional for my taste. There is, though, something very special about this piece and it feels romantic.

There is a mirror on the reverse side! While wearing this necklace, it becomes apparent that the ornate design on the front becomes a functional handle to use the mirror with – very cool!

Here’s a closer look at the length of this necklace. The pendant hits at my ribcage.

Bracelet Set

The second piece of jewelry I received is this bracelet set. Three of the bracelets are beaded on stretchy cord and the fourth is a metal chain link with closure. Redbird Vintage Box notes that these are all original, so my guess is they are from the 70s (I detect some moonstone!). I agree that that the set looks made for each other and I like the mix of different materials and bead types.

Here’s a closer look at the bracelets:

The necklace and bracelets were easy to pair together in one outfit. I likely won’t grab for these pieces every day, but everything is easy to wear which I appreciate.

Verdict: This was another good Redbird Vintage Box. I am most impressed by the level of detail and attention put into the curation month after month and discovered new jewelry I will happily incorporate into my wardrobe.

Valuing vintage is subjective and while I can’t quantify each individual item, I received two pieces of jewelry (counting the four bracelets as one) for $30. I think valuing each at $15 is more than fair, which means they likely break even with the cost of the box. I really do feel a lot of value comes into play with the personalization, nostalgia, and for me, convenience of each box.

  1. I like this subscription. I normally don’t wear jewelry, but if I did, I think this is super cute!

  2. Did they re-string the bracelets on stretchy cord? I have bracelets from the 1990s on stretchy cord that are breaking on me all the time now. I can’t imagine anything from 20 years earlier would’ve lasted. Elastic hardens and wears out.

  3. These items are all insanely cute and definitely my style, but part of me thinks that i could pay a visit to Goodwill or my local vintage/antique store and get similar items for half the price. I do see the value in having someone curate and source the items, though. I really want to get this subscription, I just wish it was a bit cheaper. Maybe I’ll try a month at 20 percent off and see what I think.

  4. The flower on the red ribbon from the packaging would look nice on a velvet choker too!

  5. I love the idea of this sub, but I don’t think it has a great follow through for me. The items I’ve seen on their site and other people’s reviews aren’t my style. And I love vintage jewelry and purses. If they could a lucite purse, I’d be all over it!
