Full VIP Status
3 pieces of jewelry + monthly bonus item = $39.99/month

The Starter Package
1 piece of jewelry + monthly bonus item = $19.99/month
(with 3-month, 6-month, and 1-year options available at discounted rates for each)

FYI: The Double the Fun option is no longer available.

Cate & Chloe Full VIP February 2018 Review

The first thing you see when you open the box is this card which features all of the products that you will find inside. I love when companies include this because I really want to know what I am getting!

Another handy item included in the box is this card which tells you all about this month’s theme as well as showing you what your VIP gift is this month. For February, not only do you get a delicious chocolate bar (see below), but you get a special discount for Bright Cellars. Yes, that’s wine!

Gemma Gemstone Gold Bangle Bracelet – Retail Value $55.00 (found here for $29.99)

This bangle bracelet is the “trendier” piece in this month’s box. The dainty style and trendy stone inlay are perfect to wear with anything. I do have one complaint and that is that the bracelet is too big for me. When wearing it, it slides all the way to the middle of my forearm. That is my only complaint.

Ariel “Tempest” 18k White Gold Halo Stud Earrings – Retail Value $150.00 (found here for $99.00)

Earrings are my usual go-to when it comes to daily jewelry, that and my watch. Because I am not a fancy person, at all, these are a little too much for daily wear but are perfect to wear for a special occasion. I am more partial to studs so these are great! The quality is nice, but the retail value is very skewed.

Blake “True” 18k White Gold Plated Pendant Necklace – Retail Value $150.00 (found here for $99.00)

This white gold plated crystal pendant necklace definitely could be worn with the earrings for a dressier, formal occasion. Again, not something I would wear regularly because it’s much too fancy to wear with a t-shirt and jeans aka my daily uniform. Quality is good though, as usual!

Truffle Pig Milk Chocolate Bar – Retail Value $3.50

Chocolate has never really been my go-to when it comes to something sweet to snack on. I don’t know what has happened to me in the last few months though, all I want is chocolate…and wine. I have never tried Truffle Pig candy before, but oh man this was seriously delicious. The inside is sort of creamy and the chocolate is the perfect amount of sweet richness. This is definitely something I plan to buy again and drink with a glass of red wine…which you can try for a discounted price at Bright Cellars.

Verdict: If I’ve said it once then I will say it again, Cate & Chloe is a very good value for the cost of the box. The retail values of each piece are definitely inflated, but even so, for the cost of the box, you are getting several really nice pieces of jewelry. This month, I received $358.50 worth of products (less with sale prices) for $39.99, shipping included. I still really wish you could only get one piece of fancy jewelry instead of that being the majority, but maybe that will change at some point. Even though I like the bracelet this time, I think my favorite item in this box is actually the chocolate! 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the March box. From Cate & Chloe: 

Any order placed from the 1st to the 4th day of the month, will be shipped that month.  All orders placed from the 5th to 31st of a given month will be shipped out on the first of the following month.

Value Breakdown: At $39.99 for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:

  • Gemma Gemstone Gold Bangle Bracelet: $6.14
  • Ariel “Tempest” 18k White Gold Halo Stud Earrings: $16.73
  • Blake “True” 18k White Gold Plated Pendant Necklace: $16.73

  1. I have similar earrings that I wear everyday! I used to not do everyday sparkle but now I’m thinking, why not?

  2. I am confused. If this is the February box, why is it not available for purchase considering it’s still January? I would really like to be able to purchase this box!

    • I would double check. I just received an email from Cate & Chloe that said I could order this box through the 4th.

  3. Chelsey!! Never be afraid to throw a fancy necklace on with a casual look!! I hasve actually worn that awesome Box of style Dylanex with black stretch pants and a long tunic tank-like black top with an open neck. I’ve also worn the Happy rebel necklace from like the first box with jeans! Just depends on what else you have on. 🙂 Something to catch the eye is all you need. I’m also of the school of before you leave the house take a look in the mirror and remove ONE accessory. Simple and fabulous all at the same time. 🙂

    • Totally agree! My favorite watch is a bit dressy but I will absolutely wear with jeans, etc simply because it makes me happy to wear it. Those are all really nice pieces – great box.

    • Thanks, Carey! Maybe I need to step up my game.

    • Agreed. I was thinking that necklace is really simple, just has some sparkle and it would look great with a plain tee or sweatshirt.
