Rocksbox will then aim to send you one piece from your Wish List in each set.
You can also leave your stylist feedback on the pieces so that she can better understand your tastes for future sets.

Rocksbox aims to send one piece of jewelry from your Wish List in each set. Adding pieces to your Wish List can get pretty addicting!
Each piece of jewelry comes carefully wrapped in plastic and with its own pouch.
My box includes a prepaid return label (make sure to keep this and the shipping package for returns), welcome cards, and a slip that details what I received in this set. Sara, my stylist, said she chose the Jenny Bird Palm Rope Necklace from my Wish List.
Jenny Bird Palm Rope Necklace in Natural – $85 (Cost to keep: $68)
This is an absolutely beautiful piece. It’s versatile and a little edgy but not so much that I can’t pair with work outfits. I love how it gives my neutral-colored clothing some extra texture.
It has 14K gold-dipped brass fringes and handmade wooden beads.
It’s finished off with a toggle clasp.
Gorjana Lido Ring – $55 (Cost to keep: $44)
I fell head over heels in love the moment I laid eyes on this ring. This is exactly my style of jewelry– delicate and subtle but unique. This is 18k gold plated metal that’s loosely braided into a band. I was so in awe of the craftsmanship I spent a long time trying to examine how they weaved the metal together! The fact that I couldn’t find the “ends” tells me it’s carefully constructed and definitely high quality.
It looks like a wreath! The monthly $10 Shine Credit brings the cost down to $34 so I’m very tempted to keep it.
Nakamol Burgundy & Rose Gold Five Times Wrap Bracelet – $55 (Cost to keep: $44)
I would never have picked this bracelet for myself, but I adore it. The color combination is perfect for my skin tone too! It is made of chains and beads tightly sewn together with leather. It’s soft and flexible which makes it comfortable to wear. I think the burgundy would go beautifully with my fall outfits as well.
Unlike other metal bracelets, this doesn’t jingle around or scrape my laptop (as much) while I’m working. That’s my main limitation with bracelets, so the wrap bracelet is both practical and aesthetically pleasing.
The button closure has adjustable hoops too.
I feel really stylish when wearing the whole set!
I’m not too good at matching jewelry so it’s great that the three pieces can be worn together.

Verdict: My August Rocksbox rocked! Everything was on point. I fell so hard for the Gorjana Lido Ring. My stylist also did an amazing job of picking out a mix of comfortable and bold pieces that could be worn together. Best of all, I was introduced to jewelry that pushed me a little out of my comfort zone but still fit my style.
As for the service itself, the website is user friendly and I appreciate that the prepaid return label and packaging is conveniently provided. If you want to leave feedback or purchase pieces you love, the process is very streamlined. In my previous review I noted that the set took exactly one week to ship to my door. This time it only took two days to arrive. I want to point out this improvement because it means I don’t need to wait as long in between sets!
