This month’s theme is “Boo”. A little sweet, a little scary. Let’s dive in.

BONUS Skulls Enamel Pin – Value $10.00?

I love that Penny + Grace has been including enamel pins as bonus items in their packages. This one has a really cool aesthetic. I like that it’s a little cartoony. Did you notice the sideways eye between the two skulls? Cool! The only problem is that the backing doesn’t go onto the post very far, so the pin feels a little precarious.

Skull and Crossbones Stud Earrings in Gold – Listed Value $12.95

These earrings are the perfect little pop of punk, haha! I like that they’re a cutesy style of skull earrings—more realistic skulls are a little too edgy for my taste. As with most Penny + Grace earrings, these are simple enough to integrate into a ton of different outfits. I’ve worn these a few days in a row now, and they’ve held up pretty well. No tarnishing or anything so far!

Barr Necklace – Listed Value $18.00

This necklace is really minimalist, which I like. It’s the kind of thing that I’d reach for if I needed just a little shine in an outfit. The sides of the bar have a bit of texture about them, so they kind of twinkle, too.

Evil Eye Necklace – Listed Value $22.00

This is the jazziest design I’ve gotten from Penny + Grace so far. Rhinestones? Very cool, Penny + Grace! I’m so used to their very understated, metal-only jewelry that this is a new twist. I like the subtle twinkle of this itty bitty pendant. It’s barely the size of my fingertip, so it doesn’t make a big, blingy impression. Instead, it provides just a smidge of visual interest, but the kind I could see people doing a double-take over. (I’m foreseeing a lot of “Ooh, what’s your necklace?” kinds of questions.)

The Verdict: This Penny + Grace pack was really cute. I’ve noticed that this subscription is starting to send several different charm designs per pack rather than, say, two or more pieces all featuring the skull and crossbones motif. I feel like that betters the chances of me liking at least one of the pieces—and in this case, I liked all three! I feel like the bar necklace is the closest to my typical style, but the subtlety of everything makes it all very wearable. Oh, and the pin? Right up my alley.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Order between the 1st to 20th of the month to nab that month’s pack. Order between the 20th and the end of the month to get the next month’s pack.

Value Breakdown: The box was $19.99, with an estimated value of $62.95 (if you count the bonus pin). That means that, proportionally, I paid the following for the items inside:

  • Pin – $3.18
  • Earrings – $4.11
  • Bar Necklace – $5.72
  • Eye Necklace – $6.99

  1. Oh, I’m so tempted right now. Nickel free is a HUGE draw. I recently tried on a pair of earrings from a gift and my ears puffed up so quickly that one of them bled. I always want jewelry boxes, but I’m so paranoid about the allergy risk!

  2. Small business, Cute, affordable jewelry, Great customer service. Sold!

  3. I think I like this month the best so far! I also think that those 2 necklaces look super cute with a lil layer between the 2.

  4. I must add that their customer service is top notch! I love the jewelry and feel fantastic supporting this small business. Highly recommended!

    • I agree! They have responded so quickly both times I’ve contacted them.

  5. Does anyone know the length of the necklaces? I’d love to subscribe to this lovely box, minimalistic jewelry is my thing, but the large majority of the time they’re usually too short for my taste. I tried to look on the site but didn’t have any luck.

    • The ones I’ve gotten have been about 14/15 inches from end to end, so they definitely are on the smaller side. There’s usually a bit of spare adjustable chain, but they do fit closer to your neck. I’m usually a fan of slightly longer necklaces (that lay more like a V-neck t-shirt than a crew-neck, if that makes sense…), but so far I’ve been happy to make an exception for these cute designs! Hope that helps, Kayla!

  6. Love, love this sub…super cute stuff, great price point, and great packaging for each item and overall inside the black pouch.

  7. wearing my evil eye right now 🙂 for those who didn’t get earrings you got the bar as a bracelet

  8. I’m loving this sub. I put the evil eye necklace on the day my box arrived last month, and it’s stayed on 24/7 including showering. It’s still in perfect shape. And it’s so cute!
