Collections by Joya March 2018 Review
Those of you who have been following along with my Collections by Joya reviews will know that I adore this box. I got so excited when it showed up on my doorstep the other day! It was really lightweight, but no less filled with bliss than it usually is. This month, all three items came packaged in this canvas pouch and also included was a little thank you card. I do wish Joya would share which charity they support, even if it’s the same one each month!
I’ve learned from the comments section on previous Joya reviews that not everyone receives the same jewelry each month. I haven’t the slightest clue how the Joya team decides what goes in whose box, but I’m supposing it’s somewhat random since subscribers don’t fill out a questionnaire when they sign up, nor is there an opportunity to fill out a monthly feedback form. I’m sure there’s overlap, but I also like the element of surprise and the idea that there can’t really be any spoilers—all their jewelry is beautiful, so it’s hard to go wrong.
Matchstick Pendant Necklace — Retail Value $58.95
This necklace is simple, lightweight, and super versatile. It’s made up of a fine, golden chain featuring a matte brass bar pendant. After last month‘s statement necklace that probably wouldn’t appeal to just anyone, this necklace feels a lot more universal. Quite honestly, I would probably overlook this necklace in favor of something bolder while shopping on the Joya site, but now that I have it here with me in person, I’m finding it to be a piece I love. And, that’s just one reason the Joya subscription is so great; I’ve had my eyes open to a number of beautiful accessories that I might not otherwise have given a chance!
This bar necklace totally blends into the dress that I was wearing the day my box came, but worn with something more minimalist (either dressed up or dressed down), it is simultaneously noticeable and understated. It’s a really lovely piece.
Jori Earrings — Retail Value $68.95
These fringe earrings are so my speed! They feature golden beads leading down to hammered, matte brass hemispheres that support ivory cotton tassels. This is the second pair of fringed earrings I’ve received in a Joya box and I certainly hope they’re not the last. I love the way the off-white color matches the platinum blonde streak in my hair, and I am forever on team hammered brass—it has a nice, warm tone to it and a rustic feel. I thought these went well with my dress that day and proceeded to debut them right then and there!
Jenna Earrings — Retail Value $48.95
As far as jewelry goes, earrings are by far the kind I wear the most. I think it’s because necklines can be tricky to pair necklaces with, and, because I work at a desk job, rings and bracelets can often feel clunky and in-the-way while I’m typing. So, if ever there were a type of jewelry to receive two of, earrings are always welcome in my world! This is another pair that might not have caught my eye while scrolling, but I absolutely love them. They’re a really unique take on the geometric jewelry trend, they’re lightweight, and I can see them going with a ton of different outfits. Heart eyes!
Verdict: Welp, I’m obsessed with this month’s Collections by Joya box! What else is new? I was sent one piece that felt hand-selected by my proverbial Joya guardian angel and two that are something a little different for me, and I couldn’t be happier with all three. This box costs $49.95, including shipping, and the three pieces I received add up to $176.85. As always, this is a killer value.
