This review is for the $50 per month, gold and silver mixed, box.
Inside is an info card declaring “hello summer”! There weren’t any jewelry boxes or ribbon like last month, just the five pieces nestled into the black tissue paper.
Silver Double Chain Drop Necklace
This necklace is dangerously riding the line of “choker”, but after photographing it, I forgot it was on and ended up wearing it the rest of the day. That has to say something about it, right?
It’s just one necklace with a fastener, but has a double chain, with a link that drops about 10 inches down your neckline. It immediately reminded me of a toy I had growing up called a “CRDL” which I was told is now outlawed due to a health hazard. The 80’s were wild, man.
I kind of like the combination of an almost choker-tight necklace with the long plunging links.
Beaded Tassel Bracelet
Even though this doesn’t necessarily scream my style, I am a sucker for tassels, and I really enjoy this elegant beaded bracelet.
There’s an array of blue, grey, and black beads (my fave), with two blue and white cotton tassels hanging from gold fasteners.
The stretchy band that it’s on allows for super easy wear, and I’ve already even showered with it on with no issues. I’m glad this fits my small wrist properly too!
Gold “Hello” Necklace
This is one of my favorites of the bunch this month. A simple “hello” in script.
Dangling from a delicate gold chain, this greeting is sure to invite conversations with those who see it.
Well, hello to you too!
I like the teensy typeface used on this one, even though it gets kind of lost in my busy tattoo.
Silver Rhinestone Bar Necklace
This piece is quite simple but has a tiny bit of “bling” on it from itty bitty rhinestones embedded in the silver horizontal bar.
Lucky for me, this one is not a choker, but is a shorter length that needs to be fastened on, as opposed to just lifting over your head, like a longer necklace.
Here’s a close up of the subtle sparkle contained within.
The bar only hangs a few inches down, on to my chest. This is a delicate piece that could be worn with a tank or a dress alike.
Gold Triple Choke Set
Here we have a set of three different chokers, presumably meant to wear together.
There are two plain gold chains with slightly different lengths to wear and a more decorated gold chain with simple gold rods and beaded stacks dangling off.
Here they are together, on me. You could certainly wear them one at a time if desired.
Verdict: My second Anarchist Box was a little bit more my style this month, but was still a little choker-heavy. I also didn’t receive any rings or earrings, which I would have liked, and only received five items, as opposed to the six I got last month. Granted, the set I got this month was 3-in-1, so I will let it slide. I’m still not convinced that the value is really here, though. The $50 box is supposed to have a value of $100, which means each piece I received is supposed to be worth about $20. Even though $20 isn’t much, the quality is pretty akin to a fast fashion brand, so I can see them being purchased for less. I couldn’t find any of the jewelry on their site, so the true retail price will remain a mystery. Anarchist Box is losing me pretty quickly. I wonder if next month will change my mind?
What did you think of Anarchist Box? Is the value there for you?
