Rocksbox Subscription Review + Free Month Coupon- June 2017
Rocksbox is a designer jewelry styling and renting service. Members pay a flat rate every month to get unlimited access the Rocksbox collection and the option to buy the pieces they love most at a discounted price.
Upon subscribing, you’ll take a “style survey,” so Rocksbox can suggest jewelry pieces that fit your style. You can also browse their catalog and add pieces to your wishlist. Each month, Rocksbox will curate sets of three pieces to send your way, including at least one piece from your wishlist. I recently cleared out my wishlist, just to see what Rocksbox might curate for me. I can’t wait to see what they picked!
Try on the items in the box, and wear them as long as you’d like. From there, you have two choices. If you love any of the pieces enough to want to keep them, you can put your $10 monthly “Shine Credit” towards your purchase. Or, if you’re ready for another style, return your box using the free shipping label and reusable envelope you got with your shipment. Shortly after, you’ll get a brand new box of jewelry to enjoy!
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.)

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
Here’s the booklet that comes in the box. It lists the products, their value, and some tips for keeping your jewelry happy and healthy. These are especially important seeing as this subscription is really more of a rental service. You can, of course, buy the pieces, but if you ever want to return ’em, it’s good to know how to keep them looking their best.
Speaking of returns, there’s a return label in the box for me. The exterior gray-ish envelope that the package is shipped in can actually be reused as a return envelope (how clever)! I love me an easy return process.
Each piece arrived in its own pouch.
Gorjana Taner Wrapped Cuff in Black and Cream – Listed Value $57.00
This dainty bracelet is just my style. I love the color combination of black, white, and gold, and the textural element of gold metal wrapped in soft thread is really interesting.
It’s adjustable, so it’s really easy to bend open and secure on my wrist. I think it’s super cute. It’s just enough shine to make me feel polished, but it isn’t bulky or forever clanking against my laptop as I type (which is the worst side effect of bracelets, am I right?).
The next little bag is a good bit bigger than the last one.
Slate Ami Necklace in Gold and Black – Listed Value $81.00
More gold and black! Amazing! This necklace is just my style. It’s definitely a statement piece, but even with a lot of elements, it doesn’t seem overdone. I love pieces with minimalist, modern appeal, and this necklace definitely checks that off.
Probably the best thing about this necklace is that it has a huge chain and lobster claw clasp for securing it. Here, I’m wearing it on its loosest loop, so you can see it’s intended to be kind of a bib necklace design.
Loren Hope Kaylee Studs in Jet – Listed Value $36.00
The final piece is this set of black gem earrings. Again, they’re black gems in a gold setting, so that wins me over. They are a good bit more run-of-the-mill than the statement necklace or the simple, but unique bracelet, but I totally get why they were included here—they go with my style, and they go with the other pieces (without drawing attention away from the necklace, for instance).
They have big wide backings, too, which I love. I find these so much more comfortable than those tiny backs.
Here they are on. Cute, right? I think they look fab with the necklace.
Verdict: Rocksbox keeps hitting it out of the park for me! For $21.00 a month (+ free shipping), I got $174.00 of jewelry that I really enjoyed. And I can wear it as long as I’d like before I return it (or buy it for myself). Those prices are what Rocksbox lists, but I feel like they’re right in line with the quality of pieces I received. They reminded me of the types of things I might browse in the jewelry section at Nordstrom. In past months, I’d added products to my account’s wishlist, so the stylists had a pretty easy job of picking sure bets. This month, I cleared out my wishlist, so all the choosing was left up to the Rocksbox team. Let’s just say, they crushed it. I feel like they have a great sense of what I want, and I think they just carry a lot of pieces that fit my aesthetic.
