Here’s the info card for the pack, which lists the products inside.

Bonus Item: Enamel Cocktail Pin – Estimated Value $10.00

Every Penny + Grace pack arrives inside a black canvas bag topped with a bonus pin. This month, it’s a little cocktail tumbler with a lime! The pink color is so cute. It’s the kind of thing I could see pinning to a retro Mad-Men-style dress before a fun dinner or cocktail party. It’s teensy—only about a half-inch wide—but it’s an eye-catcher, for sure.

Petite Baguette Stacking Ring – Listed Value $18.00

First of all, no, I did not get a hand tattoo, hehe! It’s actually something called jagua, which is a natural kind of “ink” that will soon fade, just like henna. At first, I was worried what it would look like with this sophisticated, simple ring, but I actually think it looks gorgeous. The indigo color makes the gold of the ring and twinkling baguette shine all the brighter! (Do we have any real tattooed readers out there? Do you take your tattoos into consideration when you’re shopping for jewelry? I’m so curious!)

This month’s designs all revolve around itty bitty baguette crystals. (This one is only about an eighth of an inch long.) This ring, in particular, feels ultra understated while still exuding class and elegance. It’d be perfect for stacking, or wearing by itself when you’re looking to add just the slightest touch of shine to an outfit.

Petite Baguette Stud Earrings – Listed Value $22.00

The crystals on these earrings are the same size as the one on the ring, so they are tiny! I think these are the kind of earrings I’d wear when I want to feel polished, but not when I want my earrings to get noticed. They’re just sooo small. The crystals here don’t pop as much as the one on the ring, probably because they’re easily covered up with my hair, etc.

Petite Baguette Necklace – Retail Value $26.00

The crystal here is the biggest of the bunch, but it’s still only a quarter-inch big. The chain itself is 18.5 inches long, and there are three loops you can hook the clasp through. It’s another look that would look really pretty framed by a scoop-neck dress or blouse.

The Verdict: I feel like this subscription has really upped its game lately! Last year, the pieces were basically the same (stud earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc.) with differently shaped charms month to month. Recently, though, there are sets like this one that plays with crystals and other unique elements. These looks were suuuuper understated, which I actually liked. I think the earrings would’ve suited me better if they were just a smidge bigger (maybe if the crystals were the same size as the necklace baguette). But otherwise, I’m so happy with these elegant looks! And I only paid about $6.67 per style!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but sign up for their April pack now! Here’s what Penny + Grace says on their site about timing:

Value Breakdown: The box was $19.99, and the estimated value of the featured items inside is $76.00. That means that, proportionally, I paid the following for each item:

  • Pin – $2.63
  • Earrings – $4.73
  • Ring – $5.79
  • Necklace – $6.84

  1. Agreed, Jackie! I think they’re really upping their game. The pieces are still minimal and understated, but over the past few months, the designs have gotten super chic. If friends of mine ever ask about jewelry subscriptions, this one is always the first one I mention, just because what you get for the price is so lovely!

  2. I saw your arm and thought, when did you get that tattoo? 😂 I never saw it before lol. I’m starting to like this sub but I need to see one more month. At first I wasn’t into it. It seems like they’ve up their game. Great review. I love dainty.

    • I don’t know why I thought this sub was for just earrings? I’m really enjoying it now with the three pieces

  3. I really love the direction this sub is headed in, which is why I got a subscription. The only thing I am worried about is that every necklace will now be too long because of their new chains and clasps. I want to layer with chokers, and not just longer necklaces.

  4. Sorry, for this nitpicky comment…

    The bonus pin is incorrectly listed as an alpaca. Both February and March reviews list the bonus pin as the alpaca but that was January’s pin.

    • Ugh! My bad completely, Loba. Thanks for pointing that out! I updated it above – sorry that stuck around!!!

  5. I didn’t expect to like these, but they look really pretty! I think this is such a great sub, the pieces feel really unique.
