Everything comes inside this little canvas pouch. True fact: I just used several months worth of Penny + Grace bags to organize my toiletries on a trip—they were perfect! I fit a few of these pouches inside a bigger canvas pouch. They were perfect for keeping my toothbrush away from my moisturizer, my moisturizer away from my eyeliners, my eyeliners away from my hairbands, and more!

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This month’s theme is “Namaste”. I’m a yoga gal, so I like the lotus shapes featured in this month’s set. Lotus is a seated yoga pose that’s great for meditation (I love anything that opens my hips), and the flower generally symbolizes enlightenment.

Bonus Item: Origami Bird Enamel Pin – Value $10.00?

Penny + Grace has started popping a new enamel pin design on each of its monthly canvas pouches. This month, the design is a rainbow-colored origami-inspired bird. At first, its colorful shapes reminded me of Tangrams from back in elementary school. (Anyone else out there know what I’m talkin’ about?) I love the color combination—the colors are a little bit retro and super bold. The pin is a bit bigger than past ones, too, so it really stands out on my shirt. This pin is heading for my fall jacket, for sure.

(Oh, and P.S., since there’s no listed price, I estimated that this pin was about $10.00—that’s about how much less-expensive enamel pins I’ve purchased have gone for.)

Lotus Necklace – Listed Value $18.00

The necklace this month features a little lotus design. I chose gold as my preferred finish when I signed up, but you could also get this look in rose gold or silver, if that’s up your alley. The metal isn’t particularly shiny, but it does provide a nice pop of shine and polish to my outfit. These pieces are built to be layered with other necklaces or past Penny + Grace designs, but I like this on its own, too.

Origami Crane Bracelet – Listed Value $16.00

I love this little crane! I almost wish this was the design that all of the pieces featured, rather than the lotus. I can’t tell you how wonderfully lightweight this little bracelet is. It’s super comfortable and doesn’t clang against my laptop as I type, either (the thing that keeps me from wearing more bracelets, haha). In the picture (pay no attention to my super-chipped nail polish), I’m wearing it so that the clasp is about an inch from the tightest setting. There are about 2 more inches of chain to spare, so this piece should work on a wide variety of wrists.

Lotus Earrings – Listed Value $12.95

Like the other pieces, these gold-toned earrings are super light and effortless to wear. I really like how their wide shape looks against my lobes—they pop, but not so much that they’re distracting. I like that they have an organic shape, but the design is still understated and simple. That’s so totally my style!

Verdict: Once again, I loved my Penny + Grace pack! The subscription is just $19.99 box (with free shipping), which got me three super cute pieces. I feel like the listed values for the pieces are a little high given how simple these accessories are—according to the card, there’s about $47.00 of product inside (not counting the enamel pin). Are these pieces really worth $50.00 altogether? Maybe not. But I think they’re well worth the $20.00!

  1. I loved this months pin. It’s gorgeous and bright and my favorite so far.

    I get the rose gold and this month I got the lotus earrings and the lotus necklace and the crane bracelet. I absolutely love them all. I love the packaging. I love the quality of the jewelry. For me this sub is worth every penny.

    I did hear they’re going to be making the necklaces longer but I bought extenders a while ago for very little $$$ on eBay. I just got very thin ones since I have such short hair.

  2. I selected the NO EARRINGS option and received the lotus bracelet, lotus necklace, and crane bracelet

  3. I want to subscribe for that pin-it is so cute.

  4. Is the silver plated or just silver tone? I can’t wear silver tone, but I want this sub so bad! I wish they had a full on Sterling Silver option! I would sign up in a heartbeat!

    • Hi Rhianna! It looks like Penny + Grace uses the term “silver dipped” when talking about their products, so I’m guessing they’re plated rather than toned. Most of the products I’ve seen are also 100% lead and nickel free. I agree though – I wish there was a straightforward sterling silver option! I can’t seem to find any information on what type of silver they use… just that it’s “silver”.

      While there’s not a lot of information on the materials on the Penny + Grace main site, you can find a bit more detail on individual products in their online boutique: https://www.pennyandgrace.com/collections/boutique

      Hope that helps a bit! Fingers crossed they offer a metal that works for you 🙂 Thanks so much for reading, Rhianna!

  5. I just signed up for this box and got the pineapple necklace for free and I’m so glad I did! Love the minimalism of their jewelry, but my one complaint is that I had to buy chain extenders for the necklaces as they were a bit too small around my neck.

    • They’re going to start making the necklaces longer beginning next month!! I got an email

  6. I got my first box and was disappointed, the scale was just TOO small. It all but disappeared on me. 🙁

  7. I think the listed retail values for these items are completely reasonable. I’d pay this in a store, and I’m pretty picky about getting good deals.

  8. This company is truly amazing. The jewelry hasn’t changed color after 3 months and the customer service is amazing. And for $20 It’s much more than a bargain.

    • It’s my favorite! I’ve had the same great experience.

    • It does hold up really well, doesn’t it?! I wore a pair of gold earrings from Penny + Grace literally all weekend once – they stayed nice and untarnished, and I didn’t have green splotches on my earlobes afterward from the metal. I’m such a fan of this subscription, and I’m glad you’re enjoying it, too, Melody!
