Penny + Grace Subscription Review + Coupon – August 2017
Penny + Grace is a new monthly jewelry subscription box specifically designed for people who just love that minimalist, delicate aesthetic. Pick your preferred color of metal—gold, silver, or rose gold—and you’ll receive a monthly set of jewelry to satisfy your tastes.
According to the Penny + Grace site, “each delivery is guaranteed to contain a combined retail value of $45+ (USD) in varying jewelry pieces tailored to your color/metal choice.”
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!

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!
