HangSquad Earrings Subscription Review + Coupon – January 2018
HangSquad is an earring subscription service that sends two pairs per month. Subscribers answer a short questionnaire in order to receive the pairs best suited to them.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review purposes. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: HangSquad
The Cost: $22 a month, with the option to add-on extra pairs of earrings for $6 each
The Products: Two pairs of earrings
Ships to: U.S. for free
Good to Know: Once each month’s box is shipped, the styles for that month go on sale in HangSquad‘s shop (until they’ve sold through, that is). Subscribers are able to make purchases from the shop, and the discounted cost of each pair of earrings is one of the perks of membership to HangSquad. You may also add extra pairs of earrings to your monthly shipment for $6/pair.
HangSquad January 2018 Review
In past boxes, one card is included detailing your earring style preferences. In this box, there was a card for each earring style.
Choose 2 among the following categories in order to receive the earrings that are most reflective of your personal style: total trendsetter, simple & sleek, classic beauty, funky & fun, and itty bitty. I chose to go with trendy, unique pieces (Total Trendsetter) and small studs (Itty Bitty).
Onto the earrings! Each box comes with at least 2 sets:
These bold earrings feature a vibrant, gold-dipped cobalt feather on each stud. They have a super glam style to them. While glam isn’t really my thing, I appreciate their super pretty blue hue, especially for spring! Each feather is dipped in gold paint to create a two-tone effect. However, the gold detail is only on the front side of each earring; the back of each feather is a not-quite-as-bright blue. I do wish that the quality was a bit better here and the earrings details were two-sided.
These hung down pretty low on my ears and have lots of movement! All the more reason why I’d love if the gold detail continued on their backs. As you can imagine, they’re light as air. These would look great with a floral maxi dress, denim jacket, and wedges once spring rolls around.
Itty Bitty – Estimated Value $7.00 (based on similar styles from Hang Squad)
These are adorable! The info card included a handwritten note that they’re dipped in white gold. I definitely appreciated the quality of these more than the trendsetter pair — they felt substantial and well-constructed. Plus, I’m all about celestial-inspired jewelry!
I’m super drawn to earring styles that have a different design on each post. And, yes, I realized after taking this picture that I totally have the dipper constellation side upside down! I found the posts on these to be a touch thicker than what I’m used to, but they were still comfy to wear… even overnight.
Verdict: This was my fourth box from HangSquad. While I’m enjoying the earring surprise each month, it’s proving to be pretty hit or miss for my taste. I loved the constellation pair, but the trendsetter style wasn’t so much ‘me.’ I may try to change my account settings because I’ve found that this tends to be the case month to month.
Value-wise, both pairs would sell for about $13-$16 together in the HangSquad shop. That said, I wouldn’t say that this subscription is a tremendous value. The $22.00 cost of the box comes with the option to buy more pieces at a discounted, membership price. Considering the wide range of styles available to subscribers for only $6, this is a worthwhile subscription if you wear earrings frequently. If switching up your earring selection on a monthly basis isn’t super important to you, I’d skip it.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Boxes vary based on your style preferences, so your box will look different than mine!
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $22.00 including free shipping, which means that each of the 2 items in the box has an average cost of $11.00.
