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
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)
FYI: The Double the Fun option is no longer available.

The first thing you see when you open the box is this postcard which has information about the theme of the month’s box on one side, as well as the information on this on this month’s free VIP gift on the back.
Another handy item included in the box is this card which features all of the products that you will find inside. I love when companies include this because I really want to know what I am getting!
Lastly, this little card holds more information about ordering your very own VIP box and also has a coupon code on the back.
Pop Fashion Aviator Sunglasses - Listed Value $15.00
Aviators are a classic style of sunglasses, but these are slightly different. They have a more rounded shape to them as opposed to the classic teardrop style. I actually prefer this shape much better than the classic, I think it fits my face a lot better. These are sturdy, stylish, and seriously cool!
Mercedes ‘Amity’ Turquoise Tassel Necklace in Gold - Value $54.00
This is by far my favorite piece in the box! I love the trendy, boho style. I only wear gold jewelry so I was also happy to see that this could be layered with a lot of my other stuff. It’s also really long, so that is great for me too. The quality of really nice, though truthfully I don’t think it’s worth the $54 price tag.
Florence ‘Adored’ Earrings - Value $45.00
Even those these earrings are gold and turquoise, they are not as casual as the necklace. I think they can still be worn together, but I probably won’t. These are cute and good quality, but again I do think the price is inflated. I am also not a fan of the “bling” around the outside.
Suri “Princess” Blue Bar Silver Necklace - Value $48.00
First thing’s first, I don’t really like silver jewelry. I think this necklace is really pretty, but I don’t see myself wearing it as it will not match my daily staple jewelry at all. The quality is nice, but again I don’t think it’s worth $48.
Verdict: I definitely liked this box better than last month's, likely because I chose the “Trendy” option instead of the “Classic” from last time. I think these items are really cute and pretty good quality, but like I said before, I don’t think that the prices really match up with the items. The overall cost of the box is $39.99 with free shipping, and the value according the the website is $160.89. Even though the value is inflated, I still believe that the value is higher than the cost. Still a worthwhile $40 spent!
