Cate & Chloe is a monthly jewelry subscription box. Recently, they've updated their subscription box program—where before, they'd send two pieces of jewelry per month with a bonus item (sometimes) for $39.99, they now have several subscription levels to choose from:
Full VIP Status
3 pieces of jewelry + monthly bonus item = $39.99/month
Double the Fun
2 pieces of jewelry + monthly bonus item = $29.99/month
The Starter Package
1 piece of jewelry + monthly bonus item = $19.99/month
(with 3-month, 6-month, and 1-year options available at discounted rates for each)

Ariel “Tempest” 18k White Gold Plated Pendant Necklace - Value $150.00
Simple yet elegant. These are the words I think best describe this white gold plated, Swarovski crystal pendant necklace. It’s lovely, well-made, and perfect to wear for a nice night out, wedding, or even just to add something sparkly to your favorite t-shirt.
McKayla “Wondrous” 18k White Gold Plated Earrings - Value $126.00
These interesting earrings are both pretty and once again, well-made. They are white gold plated and feature one Swarovski crystal for each earring! These, as you can see, look great with the necklace also received in this box or can be worn on their own. Even though white gold isn’t my thing, these are certainly pretty and would make a great gift for a special someone.
Karie “Beloved” Bracelet - Value $99? (Price based on similar product)
This casual silver plated bangle bracelet is pretty, stylish, and great quality. I am not entirely sure I think it’s worth $99, but I suppose if you have it and want to spend it, then you would be getting a nice piece of jewelry. My issue is that you could definitely find something similar for a much better price. Also, I am not a fan of silver, so this will probably be gifted to my sister.
Laritzy Cosmetics “Bare” Lip Pencil - Value $18.00
Since I don’t really use lip liners, it’s hard for me to say comparatively how this one works, but as far as this Laritzy one goes, I like it. The color is perfection, it’s a sort of mauve/nude color. It’s creamy and goes on easy. The only thing I don’t like is that you have to have a sharpener for it, which is one of the reasons I don’t buy liners that require sharpening. Other than that, it’s good!
Verdict: Wow, the approximate value of this box is $393 while the cost is only $39.99. That is NUTS! Pricing aside, this is a nice box if you are looking for some “modern classic” jewelry which is actually what this particular box is called. While the styles were necessarily my aesthetic, these are very nice pieces that if taken care of, will last a long time and always be “in style”. Plus, you get the bonus gift which was this very nice lip liner this month. Cate & Chloe is worth a try!
