There are two types of subscriptions to choose from. The “PINKU” box features 3 sets of quirky or kawaii jewelry, and the “SUMI” box features 3 sets of edgy or minimalist earrings.

This is a review of the SUMI, $19.99 a month, box.

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.)

The info card for the box is tacked to the inside of the box lid. I giggled a bit at “naughty earrings”. They seemed perfectly well-behaved to me! But I love the idea that this box is curated with summer fun and a rock ‘n’ roll edge in mind!

Safety Pin Earrings

The earrings are packed in a plastic pouch… with a gray velvet pouch for storing them. The first pouch seems a little extraneous, but at least they’re thoughtfully packed!

I love the concept of these earrings, which are essentially fancy silver safety pins.

They aren’t the most comfortable thing to put in, I will say. They’re the tiniest bit wider than typical earring posts, so it took awhile coaxing this through my earlobe safely. The pin part really is pointed like a pin, and while it’s not super sharp, it’s enough to poke you if you’re not careful.

Once they’re on, they look pretty darn cute, though! I love that they have a punky vibe about them, but not in a really overt way.

Hoop Earrings

Next, I got this set of silver circular earrings.

The earrings are essentially a hoop and a pendulum-like bar that hangs down in front of the hoop.

Each earring is technically three parts, so if you wanted, you could wear just the hoop or just the pendulum. Cool!

I really like the size of these! They’re not too big, but they’re big enough to make an impact. They dangle and swing a little as you move, too. I like that they’re a bit dynamic!

Pearl Fringe Earrings

Last but not least, there’s this pair of pearl studs with gold fringe swinging beneath them.

Each gold strand has a little gold ball at the bottom that keeps it weighed down. It also gives it a bit of extra sparkle.

I’ve never seen earrings like these before. They’re like really glamorous octopi!

Look how cool! These might be my favorite style in the box. The gold metal fringe is really pretty in the light and moves in a really pretty way. And the pop of pearlescence is cute and classy.

Verdict: I really liked my first SHIKKU box! The edgy, yet understated styles are right up my alley. Plus, it’s only $19.99 + shipping, meaning each set was probably about $7.66. I feel like that’s what I’d spend a a minimum on a pair of cool earrings at the mall, so I think it’s more than fair. I will say that my shipping cost was only about $3.00 (to Pennsylvania), so I could see the value of this box not being quite as worth it if you’re international, or have to pay a huge shipping cost just to get the box to you.

What do you think of the earrings I got in my SHIKKU box?

  1. Love these earrings! They all look great on you. Loving this sub and hope you keep reviewing it!

  2. I hope you keep reviewing this one. I really like those earrings.

    Do you have any ear sensitivities? How are the earrings holding up after wearing?

    I hope we get to see the other box reviewed too.

    • Great question! My ears can be a bit sensitive, but so far, these earrings haven’t left them feeling irritated or anything. I will say that I haven’t worn the pin ones very much, since they were so clumsy to get in (given their thickness). Just having to poke around my ears so much left them a little rosier than I would’ve liked. I will say that, just based on cost, I’m not certain that these are made from the highest quality metal, so if you do have super-sensitive ears, I can’t say for sure that these will be the most comfortable. Worth a try though!

      Thanks for commenting – I hope that helps a bit 🙂

  3. Safety pins and early 80’s punk! Love the flashback. They do look super thick to wear.

  4. Those are all adorable!! Unfortunately I am on a cell all day and I can’t do post earrings any more. Those last ones are so cute. Now I am sad I can’t get this sub.

    • I have the same problem since I take customer service calls all day long. The posts hit my head with the phone pressed against my ear and it eventually starts hurting. What type of earrings have you found to deal with it?

  5. Ooh, I think they’re all so pretty! I love your hair color, too! 🙂

  6. The hoop earrings are exact replicas of the Adornmonde earrings sent out in the Spring BOS. I got the gold ones, and tried them on once, but I’ve never been a big jewelry person, so they feel a little TOO big for me. They look good on you though!

    • Thanks Amber, and great observation! They’re probably about 2 inches in diameter, so they are on the big side. I was surprised at how comfortable they were despite the size (and how hefty the metal seems just by looking at them). I’m interested to see what other cool twists on hoop earrings appear in subsequent boxes. Thanks so much for your comment 🙂

  7. Those hoop and bar earnings look familiar. A Rachel Zoe box, maybe?

  8. Love the pin earrings!!!! 😍😍 And the second look just like the ones from Zoe’s box!
