Rocksbox Review + Free Month Coupon – March 2018
Rocksbox is a designer jewelry styling and renting service. Members pay a flat rate every month to get unlimited access to the Rocksbox collection and the option to buy the pieces they love most at a discounted price.
Upon subscribing, you’ll take a “style survey,” so Rocksbox can suggest jewelry pieces that fit your style. You can also browse their catalog and add pieces to your wish list. Each month, Rocksbox will curate sets of three pieces to send your way, including at least one piece from your wishlist. I’ve been leaving my list empty so that Rocksbox can do all the picking for me. What can I say, I like the element of surprise!
Try on the items in the box, and wear them as long as you’d like. From there, you have two choices. If you love any of the pieces enough to want to keep them, you can put your monthly “Shine Credit” towards your purchase.
Or, if you’re ready for another style, return your box using the free shipping label and reusable envelope you got with your shipment. Shortly after, you’ll get a brand new box of jewelry to enjoy!
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Rocksbox March 2018 Review
The info booklet contains a little note from the stylist who worked on my order. As she mentions, there’s a page in your Rocksbox account that lets you leave feedback on your items, so that they can better curate your jewelry in the future!
Kendra Scott Carole Necklace in Gold and Slate Cats Eye – Cost to Keep $90.00
I am loving this necklace! I find the gray hue of the oversized crystal pendant to be so mesmerizing—it has a cloudy, mysterious quality to it that’s really magical. The pendant is long (the chain is 30″ long and the pendant is just over 2″ long), which is an easy silhouette to throw on over the tees or LBDs in my wardrobe to give ’em bit of ethereal glitz.
Aster Cress Drops in Gold and Peach Mother of Pearl – Retail Value $75.00, Cost to Keep $63.00
I really love the mother of pearl finish of these diamond-shaped danglers, but they don’t hang as neatly as I might like. I think if they were made of just one giant diamond shape, they’d be more my style, but the different panels keep twisting in different directions in a way that I’m kinda “meh” about. They’re about 2″ long, so they’re an unmissable statement piece, especially against my dark hair. I think they’re pretty cool and would look awesome on someone with slightly different style.
Perry Street Roxanne Statement Earrings – Retail Value $60.00, Cost to Keep $51.00
Yowza! These earrings have it all—chain fringe, rhinestones, multicolored gems, modern flair, vintage vibes… I kinda love them! They’re definitely a pair that I’d be more likely to wear to a fancier occasion, rather than day-to-day. (My everyday style is just a little too understated to carry these glamorous earrings.) They hang about 2″ long and are surprisingly comfortable for being so loaded with crystals and chain. (Love the sheen of that gunmetal chain, by the way.)
The Verdict: This was a very cool order from Rocksbox! I love the variety of pieces they gave me to play with—from sleek and minimal to ornate and extra-special. As someone with a somewhat ephemeral taste in clothes and accessories, I really love the convenience (and cost-effectiveness) of this subscription. Because I’m renting these items, I pay a fraction of the cost that I would to buy them all. And rather than crowding my jewelry box with pieces I get for a specific event and rarely wear again, I can constantly switch pieces out for something new (or bite the bullet and buy pieces I love—like that big gray pendant—at a reduced price). Like, seriously, think about it—it cost me just $7.00 per item to rent these pieces, all of which arrived in great condition in an adorable box. (I’m starting to collect those boxes for storage/crafts, too!) That’s a fraction of what each piece would cost to buy at retail!
To Wrap Up:

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $21.00 to rent, which ends up being $7.00 per piece. The Kendra Scott necklace was the only piece that didn’t have a discounted price via Rocksbox unless I keep all three pieces and get $10.00 off my order. (It retails on the Kendra Scott site for the same amount). The total retail value of each item is $225.00.
If I keep all three pieces, I pay the member price of $204.00. If I keep all three pieces, the price is $194.00, and the $21.00 I spent on my membership goes towards any purchase I make. Proportionally, that would mean that I’d pay the following for each piece:
- Necklace: $77.60
- Diamond-shaped earrings: $64.67
- Fringe earrings: $51.73
