I love the kind of “delicate” jewelry Penny + Grace specializes in—simple, minimalist jewelry that goes with just about any outfit.
This month is all about “Wanderlust.” I love the angular shapes on display on this artsy information card!
Everything comes packaged in a woven, zippered pouch. (I just used one of these pouches to stow makeup on a trip to Chicago!) There’s a little bonus item attached to the pouch, too!
Bonus Item: Enamel Mountain Pin – Value $10.00?
This pin isn’t listed on the info card like the other products, so I just guessed at the value. Most enamel pins I’ve seen at boutiques in town are right around $10.00, so I’d say that’s fair. The pin itself is really cute, though the white enamel seems like it’s seeping outside the lines a bit (there’s some flowing over the bottom edge of the pin, and it seems like maybe it’s covering the tree designs in the pin, as well…). Still, it’ll add a bit of a glimmer to my lapel!
All of the subsequent products come packaged inside these cute, Swiss-cross-adorned pouches.
Wanderlust Earrings – Listed Value $12.95
These teeny earrings are so simple and adorable. I like that they’re a minimalist, almost edgy way for me to show off my love of nature. (I’m a real mountains-and-lakes type gal, too, so these earrings are perfect!)
Wanderlust Necklace – Listed Value $18.00
There’s a mountain necklace to match the earrings, too. I love this little mountain range, with its varying peaks and valleys. Even the snow caps have differentiating little edges to them. The fact that these mountain pieces are done in gold is really compelling—I treasure the time I’ve gotten to spend in the mountains and nature, and seeing these iconic shapes cast in gold makes them literally look like treasures!
Lost and Found Necklace – Listed Value $18.00
The final piece this month is a tiny compass. It’s not even an inch in diameter, but it’s such a sweet, simple symbol of adventure and travel. In other words, it’s the perfect accessory for summer roadtrips and vacations! The letters are highlighted with ivory, so they pop a bit against the gold. I really love how this pendant is subtle enough that you might not know it’s a compass at first glance. Wearing this pendant is a way for me to celebrate the things and themes I love without going too Ms. Frizzle with my outfit!
Okay, let’s see what all of this looks like on.
Here’s the mountain set together. True to the Penny + Grace mission, these pieces are teeny tiny! The earrings like to spin around a little throughout the day—I squeezed the backing on tight to help keep the mountain nice and level!
And here’s the compass necklace. See how the letters kind of disappear from far away? It just becomes a pretty circular pendant, which I think is pretty darn cute.
The Verdict: The “Wanderlust” theme behind this month’s Penny + Grace pack was definitely up my alley, so I really liked this month’s set! In terms of value, the only way I can really price these is to go by what the info card said (since the designs are Penny + Grace’s). According to the card, there’s about $49.00 of jewelry in this $19.99 box (with free shipping), not counting the bonus pin. I think that’s pretty fair—so far my Penny + Grace pieces haven’t turned green, broken, or tarnished too much, so they’re surprisingly good quality for being so inexpensive. I’m really happy with this cute, surprising subscription!
