Switch will always use USPS First Class mail to send your jewelry unless it weighs more than 1 pound. Each package comes with a prepaid USPS return label so you can leave your return for your mail carrier or drop it off at the post office if you’re the nervous type (like me!)

They then match your picks with what they have available and send you the number of pieces that match the plan you’ve chosen. You choose from actual items in their collection and not just something in a similar style.
This month I was looking for some statement earrings. I received a pair of simple, classy clip-on earrings and a pair of bold, dangly earrings.
Delfina Delettrez Gold, Pearl, and Enamel Earring – Value $550, Member Price $545
I’ve been wanting to rent this earring for a while and was so excited to see it back in stock! I love the idea of a special single earring, plus the eye design is great. It is made of 9 karat gold with green and white enamel and a pearl closure. This is a bold, playful, and uniquely stylish piece.
The earring came in a velvet drawstring bag.
Unlike typical earrings that you push through from front to back, this one goes through the back to the front and is secured with a pearl piece.
This earring was comfortable to wear and my kind of bold. I really love this piece and how the gold and green look with my hair color. This is the kind of item that you can pair with a denim jacket just as easily as a velvet dress.
Vita Fede Mini Titan Two Tone Bracelet – Value $275, Member Price $192.50
This is a great rose gold bracelet decorated with black spikes. This is an item I could see myself wearing every day, the black accent works so well with most of my wardrobe – which is also black! The spikes are a nice design addition and make this a slightly edgier piece.
Like the earring, the bracelet came in a black velvet drawstring bag.
The bracelet was very easy to get on and off because it opens with a spring mechanism.
The bracelet is stamped with the brand name and a mark that it was made in Italy. You can see here that some of the finish is wearing off due to use, but this isn’t too surprising for a piece of rental jewelry. I will say that it seems the spikes have suffered damage and have some sharp edges where small pieces have broken off. It may be time to retire this specific piece of jewelry.
I love how this piece works with my sweater and how comfortable it was to wear. The rose gold is lovely and not too pink!
Verdict: I think this was my favorite Switch so far! Both pieces suit my personal style so well and I could see making both a part of my jewelry collection. The bracelet would work with the basic outfits I wear most days while the earring would be great for my bolder, more stylish days. My only note is the sharp edges on the bracelet spikes from wear and tear, but I know this is something to expect from time to time when renting jewelry. This month’s Switch had a value of $825 which is great for a rental fee of $49 for two pieces at a time!
