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!

  1. Can’t wait to try this out! Do you have another coupon code? WELCOME isn’t working for me.

  2. If you sign up now do you get this months?

    • Hi Alex – The June boxes have sold out, singing up today will ensure you receive the upcoming July box. Some of the pieces featured in the June box are however on sale in our boutique!

      • Can we get a spoiler for July? 😬 I have had two subs from the beginning and need to cut back to one but I want the pineapple in gold and rose gold. I was told in an email that it would be in the June bags but alas that wasn’t the case. So I’m really, really hoping for it this month. Really loving this sub! But two suggestions: 1-can you add extenders to your online store? 2-I hate when I get the email with my tracking number but it sits for a week before it’s actually shipped. I’d rather not get the email till it’s actually shipped, because I literally check it multiple times a day because of the anticipation! But I DO love that you send an email notification when it’s out for delivery AND again after it’s been delivered. Great customer service! Really hope you guys continue rocking it!

  3. I’m really liking this sub! I chose rose gold for the first two months but I might switch to silver or gold next month so I don’t get overloaded on one look. I need my necklaces a bit longer, so I stocked up on necklace extenders on Amazon.

    • Oooh, I’d never even considered necklace extenders! Great suggestion, Amy. I like wearing my necklaces a little longer sometimes, too – I’ll have to check those out. Thanks for your helpful comment!

  4. Just in case it wasn’t mentioned. I didn’t get the earrings but got a bracelet of the compass piece

  5. I loved this months so much (it was my 1st month) that I contacted penny + grace to tell them how delighted I was. I love the jewelry! The necklaces and earrings are so dainty and delicate and sleek. And I was so impressed with the packaging and the pin! The jewelry on the website is just as nice, so I have a feeling I won’t ever be very disappointed by this subscription.

  6. June was my first month subscribing to Penny + Grace and LOVE everything!! The gold looks great… I chose the silver metal and all items look fabulous!! 👏🏻🎉😊

  7. Could you please add measurements of the necklaces? I love this style of jewelry, but the necklaces are often way too short for me.

    • Their website says they are 38 cm. You can buy from their shop too.

      • Thanks. That’s 15″ – tiny!

      • Just FYI…the 15 inches is on the very tightest loop…mine has quite a bit of chain available for adjusting. I can’t stand tight necklaces and mine fit very comfortably with lots of room left for adjustments.

    • the necklace is 18″ total with a little over 2″ of that length being the extender.

      • Thanks for noting the length everyone – I’ll be sure to do so in future reviews (sorry that wasn’t in there, tpop!). They are on the shorter side, so the pendants sit higher on my collar than necklaces I’d usually buy. AmyM mentioned the idea of getting some necklace extenders to help make the chain more roomy – it’s an extra step, which is annoying, but if you otherwise love these necklace designs, maybe it’s worth it? They are awfully cute!

        Thanks so much to all of you for reading and being so helpful to one another 🙂
