Yogi Surprise Jewelry Subscription Box Review - May 2015 Info

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Yogi Surprise Jewelry Subscription Box Review - May 2015 Chocolate

Missionary Chocolates Vegan Truffles – Value $6

Is it bad that my favorite part of a jewelry subscription is the chocolate? I love milk chocolate but rarely get to have it since I have to avoid dairy in my diet – but these are made with coconut milk! And they were the perfect amount of sweet with a sprinkling of salt on the outside. I miss them already and plan on buying more soon!

(And I’m so pleasantly surprised that they arrived in perfect condition considering the 80+ degree whether we’ve been having lately).

Ok – now onto the jewelry part of this jewelry subscription!

Yogi Surprise Jewelry Subscription Box Review - May 2015 Bracelets

Amethyst Stone Peace Bracelet – Value $45

I love the variation in the color of these stones – and it’s a well-made piece. (I’m using Yogi Surprise’s info card prices since these pieces don’t have brands I can look up online).

Yogi Surprise Jewelry Subscription Box Review - May 2015 Necklace

Mala Balancing Necklace – Value $77

This necklace is made with Rudraksha seeds and Agate stones. I’ve never seen anything like it – I think the seeds as beads gives it a really interesting natural quality.

Yogi Surprise Jewelry Subscription Box Review - May 2015 ring

Painted Ring – Value?

This ring isn’t listed on the card, and for a minute I was worried it had fallen off someone’s finger when packaging this box, but I checked Instagram and it looks like other subscribers received this ring as well. It’s another piece that’s really unique, and I think I love the colors and pattern. (I believe it is painted plastic).

Verdict: I’m pleased with the first Yogi Suprise jewelry box! While I wouldn’t pay the suggested retail values listed on the card, I definitely think it is worth $25 a month.

What do you think of the first Yogi Suprise Jewelry Box?

  1. Is there any way to get this box? I signed up but the box I’ll be receiving is June’s.

    • It wouldn’t hurt to contact her and ask. I’ve found her to be very helpful and friendly.

  2. This box looks great! They sell those rings at a Bali import store next to my house in FL – they cost $0.50 there.

    • Most everything is cheaper in Bali. It is a very pretty country. Sometimes finding nice jewelry made there in here in the usa is hard to find. It’s great you have an import store close by, I wish I did. Most the stores in my area have made in China items and the quality is not as good. Because of that I’m probably going to get this box. – Hoping they will come up with a combination box, would like to get both the Life Style and Jewelry box shipped together.

  3. I like this box well enough to get another box. The chocolate was delicious! The bracelet I like. The 3 with the symbol looks like 30, and I am turning 30 in June! The mala is okay. I don’t really do the spiritual part of yoga: I do the stretch and balance part. The way the ring was just thrown in there was weird, but I’ll wear it. Hoping for something blue in June!

    • The entire pendant on the bracelet is the “om” symbol, including the part that looks like a 3. “Om,” when you say it out loud, is meant to represent the humming and vibration that is present in the universe and within our bodies. Disregard if you already knew this! I hope you wear the bracelet even when you’re 31 and older. 🙂

  4. This box looks awesome! Especially the pretty necklace. I may have to try to get this box.

  5. Are the truffles gluten free? I couldn’t tell from their website.

    • Ingredients list: cacao beans, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithan, pure vanilla, organic coconut, milk, brown sugar, vanilla sea salt and organic vanilla.

  6. Oh dear heavenly!! I just tried the chocolates.. I see many orders in my future. That dark chocolate delight!!

  7. Liz, does this box include information on malas, such as their intended use as a prayer/meditation tool? Because I find it to be offensive and disingenuous that a mala is included in a jewelry box. It endorses its use as decoration, which it is not meant for. They even called it a necklace, which proves that point further, since a mala is decidedly not a necklace, though it can be worn around the neck (and it does make a lovely necklace) when it is not being used. Highly spiritual people will generally wrap the mala around their wrist (or just let it dangle from their hand) and count the beads (108 of them) with their fingers, saying a prayer with each bead they pass. It appears to me that Yogi Surprise did not send a mala for prayer purposes (since it’s in a jewelry box), and so they must know that people who receive them will likely use them just as jewelry. This is appropriation and, in my opinion, exploitative of those who may be interested in being introduced to yoga and spirituality but are uninformed. For the record, this is a beautiful mala and I highly encourage all those who received one to consider using it the way it is intended, as a balancing tool. You don’t have to be religious in order to take advantage of it; whenever you’re stressed out and need a moment, sit down, close your eyes, and count the beads. Say something like “breathe” each time you pass a bead, or just count them from 1 to 108. I really do hope you enjoy it. Getting off my soapbox now.

    • I understand the soap box. I was fortunate in the fact that I was aware of the symbolic and religious purposes for the mala and use them…. I leaned more toward the benefit of the doubt with it because, in my experience, it’s a general assumption that anybody “into” yoga and the like, knows the purpose and use of malas. I do agree that I wish they had included a bit more detail on the card, but they did cover the properties of both the seeds and the agate stone well and the general use of (to quote the card in reference to the mala itself) “They tune balance and energy, fostering love, health, and good fortune, as well as enhance focus and concentration.

      • Yeah, I was worried my post may have been redundant for a lot of subscribers who do use malas for meditation. Just wanted to put that post out there, especially because sometimes these yoga boxes (Yogi Surprise and Buddhi Box – are there more?) leave a bad taste in my mouth. As a South Asian and long-time yoga practitioner, products like mala “necklaces,” “Chakra Balancing” candles and traditional Indian scarves with highly inflated prices commercialize spirituality and the practice of yoga. I loooove sharing yoga with others and want the whole world to practice it, which is why I really appreciate when subscription boxes send out yoga mats, DVDs, and even something practical like a spray for refreshing your mat. But just slapping an “om” on something just to sell it as part of the yoga industry feels a little deceptive to me. I do hope I’m not offending or patronizing anyone, because at the heart of it, yoga is for everyone and it’s personal. Anyone can practice it and express themselves the way they choose.

        • Edited to add: original comment also by me, I usually go by “Em” on this forum.

        • I agree. I detest watching something get inflated because it has this or that symbol, with either no purpose, or with no info on the purpose. I do love mats, dvds, essential oils or actual tools such as stones, etc, with the intent behind the stone given in detail. Yoga and yoga lifestyle has become highly “fad-ish” lately.. both good and bad. Good for the people who actually get exposed to it and do the research and truly live it, bad for those who just want to wear the things and know the words to be in style. Too many places are catering towards the latter. If I want an “authentic” anything, if find a source that actually comes FROM the area and the people and is fair trade and supporting the people of the area. I can appreciate a pretty scarf in a box, but not quite fond of it being called “authentic” unless they can show where and whom they source from and the intent of the item.

    • I actually discovered what mala beads are because of Yogi Surprise. The April lifestyle box had a rosewood mala bracelet and the discription says “count the beads as you recite your mantras, or wear simply the bracelet as a reminder to focus your energy and intentions.” I was curious and just yesterday decided to research it. I really think it will be a great meditation tool and have every intention of using it properly. I’m glad Yogi Surprise introduced it to me.

  8. I love that Amethyst bracelet!

  9. I may order a box of chocolates for my sister who is gluten-free. I may look for the bracelet on swap. I have amethyst throughout my house. I even have a small one on my desk.

  10. I really loved my box. I like that the little ring that was put in has a little flex to it so that you can put it on multiple fingers. I wore it out the day I got it. Also wore my beads, actually wear them around the house a lot and they hang right over my laptop when I’m not wearing them. Those seed are such a unique feel. Highly impressed with the quality of both pieces. It’s on my keeper list.

  11. I subscribe to the regular yogi surprise and love it! It has improved so much from the first box. Really wish I had signed up for this. I love Amethyst and the mala beads (although I have a set from another Yogi surprise box are lovely. Not to mention the chocolates. May have to drop a box (quarterly discovery box, maybe) and add this.

  12. The OM bracelet is gorgeous! – The chocolates look so much yummier then the icky ones in the regular box. – I like this box a lot for the price – It is nice to see real stones instead of plastic ones. – Gonna ad this box to my wish list that seems to be getting longer, and longer – LOL!
