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.

Spongelle Snowflake Body Buffer - Retail Value $14.00? (Price based on similar product)
This month's VIP gift is a Spongelle body buffer. This scent and style are exclusive for Cate & Chloe and perfect to gift yourself or a friend or the holidays. The scent is warm yet floral, very pretty. Not sure if I can give this away, so it might just have to be an early gift for me!
Sage "Wisdom" 18k White Gold-Plated Ring- Retail Value $150.00
This ring is both classic and fancy at the same time. Last month the necklace from the same collection was in this box, so it's nice to have the whole set now. Made of 18K white gold plated and AAA grade CZ stones, the style of this is definitely not something to wear on a daily basis, it's certainly more for a special occasion. Again, not something I really need, but pretty nonetheless.
Gabrielle Pearl 18k Gold-Plated Swarovski Drop Necklace - Retail Value $134.00
Once again, another dressed up option to add to the jewelry collection. I wish that I would get more casual items in these boxes because I don't wear this style of jewelry on an everyday basis. These are pretty and well-made, but also certainly not for the price which appears to be rather inflated.
Margaret "Protected" Statement Necklace - Retail Value $45.00 (Note: This item comes in white and black.)
Now, we're talking. I love this necklace! I just wish that these were the items we received more of instead of the fancy stuff. While those items are pretty, this is something I can see myself wearing pretty often. I tend to wear a lot of black and white, so naturally, this will go with most of my wardrobe. Love!
Verdict: Overall, these boxes are definitely a great value, though I just can't see myself wearing any of the overly fancy pieces I've received. I wish that I got more of the casual, everyday pieces instead. That being said, I would not buy these so in the case that I might need to dress up, I will have a variety of items to choose from. If you are someone who likes to dress with a bit of glitz and glamor, then these boxes are for you!
