BuddhiBox Jewelry February 2018 Review
An information card is included in each package detailing its contents. The front offers a motivational phrase that’s the perfect size to tack onto the corner of your mirror as a daily reminder, and the back provides context around the symbolism and healing values of each item.
108 Anahata Mala — Listed Value $68.00
As I unpacked this quarter’s Jewelry BuddhiBox, I couldn’t believe the sheer volume of items they managed to fit in there! On top of it, they all struck me as high-quality pieces that I would be just as happy to keep as I would to gift to friends, and feel confident that I was offering them a thoughtful item that isn’t junky. This Mala necklace is a great example of that. While I’m not a huge wearer of the color pink, I found myself really drawn to the rose quartz beads of this spiritual piece, and I love how they look with the single green stone and deep burgundy tassel. Fitting for Valentine’s day in both color and sentiment, this Anahata Mala (Anahata is the Sanskrit word relating to the heart chakra) is actually my first of its type, and it’s one I plan to keep and cherish.
Suede Flower of Life Pouch — Listed Value $18.00
Opal Healing Bracelet — Listed Value $25.00
Next, I explored this beautiful suede pouch—featuring a silver sacred geometry charm—and the delicate bracelet that came inside. The teal pouch reminds me of one my best friend gave me a couple of years ago—she told me to wear it as a necklace and store whatever crystal I felt I needed with me that day, to keep it close to my heart. I might not wear it day-to-day, but there have been certain places and circumstances when it’s felt really right. The golden bracelet that arrived inside features a dotted chain and a sweet opal pendant. I love opal, and I envision this piece being worn stacked with other bracelets.
Clear Quartz Cuff — Listed Value $25
The second bracelet that came in this quarter’s box is this pretty gold cuff. It’s partially wire-wrapped and features a chunky quartz stone as the centerpiece. My first thought when I saw this bracelet was how lovely its natural stone was and my quick second thought was that said stone seemed really weighty. I found that when I bent the cuff so that it hugged close to my wrist, it wasn’t as quick to roll upside-down, but then it wasn’t very comfortable. I’ll have to display this one on my dresser and save it for special occasions.
Here are a few pictures of both bracelets together. In the top one (against the green background), my hand is being held upright, so you can see that the opal bracelet is rather loose on my somewhat small wrist, even when hooked to the tightest setting. In the bottom photo, you can see that both bracelets have a tendency to flip upside-down. For some, this might not bother them! For others with more substantial wrists, it might not be a problem. For me, it was kind of uncomfortable, so I might consider gifting these beautiful pieces to friends!
Tanzurine Healing Stone — Listed Value $10
I also received a piece of tanzurine in this month’s BuddhiBox Essential Oils, and thought it was just so beautiful. This one differs from the other one I received in that its shape allows light through in a more significant way. I loved seeing the dimension that this rock took on with sunbeams streaming through it, and how it looked so much like the sea.
Palo Santo Smudge Stick — Listed Price $4.00
This isn’t the first piece of Palo Santo that’s come in a BuddhiBox, and as with the tanzurine stone, I received this in the February BBEO. It’s a lovely, earthy form of incense, and while it’s part of a spiritual practice for some cultures, I respectfully just enjoy it for its scent and calming ambiance.
Verdict: This was a lovely, exciting BuddhiBox Jewelry box! I enjoyed the subtle nods to Valentine’s Day, while not hitting you over the head with it too much. And, while not every piece of jewelry will ultimately end up in my collection, I still find it to be beautiful, and they will make wonderful gifts. Using the list prices provided, I added the contents up to about $150, and each piece truly did feel to me like it was valued accurately. For a $49.95 box, that’s a great deal!
