Olia Box Jewelry Subscription Review – December 2017
Olia Box is a jewelry styling box that sends you 2-3 pieces that complement your style each month. Subscribers fill out a questionnaire when they sign up to let your stylist know what tones of metals you wear, what necklace style you prefer, and any other comments you might want to tell them (like pierced ears or ring size).
When you sign up, you’ll get to answer these questions:
- Which metal tone(s) do you wear? (Gold Only, Silver Only, Mix Gold & Silver, or Surprise Me)
- Which necklace style(s) do you prefer? (Everything Dainty, Bold & Chunky, Long Pendants, or Surprise Me)
I chose Surprise Me for each of these. You can change your preferences anytime by sending customer service an email.
There is also a comment box that you can add any additional info you want them to know. I added that I have multiple piercings in each ear.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Olia Box December 2017 Review
This month’s jewelry includes a bracelet and two necklaces in yellow gold tone. Let’s see how they look:
This month’s package also included a thank you note and info card with jewelry care tips.
Gold Bar Necklace – Estimated Value $15
This simple necklace is a perfect everyday piece. It has a delicate gold chain with a bar pendant. The bar has a gold outer layer and slightly textured silver inner bar layer. I really like the versatility of the mixed metals on this necklace.
A lobster claw clasp and extender make this necklace adjustable in length.
I’m wearing this at about the middle of the extender and it hits perfectly above this scoop neck top. I think it would also be cute to add a couple more layers of different length dainty necklaces to create a multi-strand look.
Gold Long Woven Pendant Necklace – Estimated Value $16
The next necklace is long, gold, and has a woven textured pendant. The woven part is like a grey paper that gives soft and subtle interest to the piece. I didn’t think of it while I was taking photos, but this might be a great necklace to layer with the bar necklace above.
The clasp is similar to the last with a lobster claw and an extender.
The length is perfect to help elongate my neckline a little with this higher scoop neck. It is light and doesn’t bounce around too much when I’m walking around. I think the grey is a great neutral color for many different outfits.
Gold Double Wire Cuff Bracelet – Estimated Value $10
Lastly, I got a dainty gold bracelet that coordinates well with the necklaces. I like the mix of smooth and ribbed textures and that the cuff is adjustable. It is also very light and comfortable. This could be stacked with a couple other simple gold bracelets too.
The Verdict: Once again, I’m pleased with my Olia Box this month. I love that these pieces are so versatile and can be worn alone or together for a coordinating look without being too matchy-matchy. I’ve also noticed, now that I’ve received a few month’s of Olia Box, that many of the pieces coordinate well. That is the benefit of having a jewelry sub that sticks to a certain style of jewelry I guess. There are no brand markings on the jewelry, but compared to prices for similar pieces (at Target.com), I feel like the value of this box just exceeds the cost. This box seems less about getting a huge discount and more about curating jewelry that works for you.
The Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Olia Box chooses jewelry for you based on your answers to the style choices. You might not get the same items I did, but you may end up with pieces that are even better for you. Sign up now to see what they pick for you!
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $34.99 which means that each of the 3 pieces of jewelry in the box has an average cost of $11.66.
