Rocksbox Subscription Review + Free Box Coupon- November 2016
Rocksbox is a designer jewelry styling and renting service. Members pay a flat rate every month to get unlimited access their collection and the option to buy the pieces they love at a discounted price. Jewelry is delivered in curated sets of three at a time.
Upon subscribing you’re asked to take a “style survey” so Rocksbox knows what jewelry you like or dislike. Then, you look through their jewelry collection and select any pieces you want to try to your Wish List. Rocksbox will aim to send you at least one piece from your Wish List in each set. You can also leave feedback for your stylist so that she can better understand your tastes for future sets.
If you like something enough to purchase, they offer $10 in “Shine Credit” to spend on jewelry every month. This credit can be used on your sets or on Rocksbox’s online shop (Shine Credits are automatically applied to the price at the time of purchase and ship separately from your sets.)
Each piece of jewelry comes carefully wrapped in plastic in separate pouches.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Update: Rocksbox recently updated their product details pages so that it’s directly accessible from the “Leave Feedback” page from the menu bar. New features include seeing other members’ feedback and recommendations for similar styles.
My package arrived about two business days after receiving a shipping email.
The box includes a prepaid return label (make sure to keep this and the original packaging for returns), a few cards, and a slip that details what I received in this set.
For November, my stylist granted me two pieces from my Wish List.
Sophie Harper Beaded Cluster Necklace – Value $59 (Cost to keep: $50)
This is a gorgeous triple-layered necklace with mint green stones. It’s gold plated over brass.
I wouldn’t usually think to wear mint-colored jewelry during wintertime, but it matches well with my current wardrobe. I love the way each stone dangles from the chain.
Kendra Scott Boyd Ring in Gold and Iridescent Drusy – Value $85 (Cost to keep: $72)
Now that I’m officially an adoring Kendra Scott fan, anything from their brand gets me hyped. This is a slightly adjustable ring made with 14K gold plated brass. The iridescent druzy is simply drool-worthy.
I’ve noticed that the Kendra Scott “gold” is lighter in color than other gold jewelry. This may be something to think about when matching pieces together.
Slate Moonlight Daydream Cuff – Listed Value $39 (Cost to keep: $33)
I’ve stated in the past that I’m not a huge bracelet person, but Rocksbox has changed my mind a little. This is especially true for this cuff.
This is gold plated over brass. I love everything about the design. It’s simple yet eye-catching. The white accents stand out against my skin tone. The howlite stones actually look and feel like plastic to me, but I could be wrong.
Here’s a photo of the whole gang together.
The ring and bracelet pair isn’t matchy-matchy at all but they look very nice together.
Verdict: I’m really happy with my subscription so far. I’m currently in a phase where I like exploring new jewelry but don’t necessarily commit to them. In this case, Rocksbox is perfect. The pieces I receive are also amazing in terms of quality and style. Someone mentioned in my last review that they were concerned about pieces being unsanitary. Rocksbox mentions that they clean and sanitize every piece each time it is sent out. Personally, I haven’t experienced any stains or dirt that would suggest otherwise, so I have not had a problem with it. However, I also don’t wear earrings, so I am less concerned about sanitation than someone who needs to worry about piercing infections.
I wanted to mention that I really appreciate the changes Rocksbox made to their website. I like that not only can you view a “quick view” pop-up window but also look at a separate product page for each piece. It’s much easier to access product details from the Menu bar as well.
