Cate & Chloe is a monthly jewelry subscription box. They recently updated their site ñ you can now customize you subscription and let them know what style of jewelry you prefer. They also used to send two pieces of jewelry per month with a bonus item (sometimes) for $39.99, and now they have several options:
Full VIP Status
3 pieces of jewelry + monthly bonus item = $39.99/month
Double the Fun
2 pieces of jewelry + monthly bonus item = $29.99/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)

This is the information card that came with this month's package, detailing the contents.
Kate "Marvel" Earrings
These are very pretty earrings, and I like the touch of turquoise a lot! One very strange thing about them, though... They didn't have any backs on them! Just bare posts! How odd! I have been a paying subscriber to Cate & Chloe in the past, and I can tell you that they have excellent customer service. I have loads of spare earring backs, but I know if I emailed them about this issue they would quickly make it right for me.
Jackie "Crescent Moon" Draping Pendant Necklace
The stone in this necklace is stunning. I love natural looking stones, and this one is just exquisite. Plus this necklace is nice and long and totally my style. I love it!
Sage "Wisdom" 18k White Gold Plated Ring
This is a very beautiful, sparkly ring, and I love that it's plated with real white gold! It's not my style exactly, but I'm sure lots of subscribers will love this.
This is the bonus item this month. I kind of like the color scheme, and I love that it has tons of compartments. I also love that it's a wristlet; they come in handy so often! I think the materials feels like it's not very high quality, though. I don't think I will end up using this. It seems like something my niece might like.
Verdict: I think Cate & Chloe is a fun subscription, and the pieces they send tend to be really good quality costume pieces. Their jewelry is always so shiny! I love that. It also makes the pieces giftable, along with their superior packaging. The lack of earring backs was kind of weird, but mistakes happen. The retail prices they list on their website seem a bit out of range, so this is one of those subscriptions that I just have to ask myself if it is worth the $40 to me. The answer is always yes!
