Switch Designer Jewelry Rental Subscription Review + Coupon – February 2018
Switch is a jewelry rental service that lets you try out designer jewelry without the commitment. You pick your favorite pieces and try them out for as long as you want with a monthly fee. This is a review of the 3 pieces at a time plan.
Switch also offers the option to purchase jewelry pieces at a discounted member price.
Switch will always use USPS First Class mail to send your jewelry unless it weighs more than 1 pound. Each package comes with a prepaid USPS return label so you can leave your return for your mail carrier or drop it off at the post office if you’re the nervous type.

Switch Subscription Box February 2018 Review
The order is topped with a bunch of different info cards about how to refer friends and how the subscription works.
Every piece comes packaged inside a cute black drawstring bag.
Marni Green Enamel and Resin Oversized Earrings – Retail Value $450.00, Member Price $325.00
How amazing are these earrings?! They’re about 3 inches long and look like a super modern, abstract take on a banana leaf. I love the gold accent and the deep color. They’re not too heavy for being so big, either. I did notice some very fine scratches on the gold section in particular, but nothing that’d make me hesitant to wear them.
Chanel Vintage Wide Resin Bangle – Retail Value $500.00, Member Price $425
Before you ask, no, I did not get a tattoo, haha! Like traditional henna, this jagua design should fade in about another week. It’s gorgeous though, isn’t it? Dare I say the bracelet looks lovely against the indigo tones!
I fell in love with the dreamy rose-quartz pink of this bracelet. Its smooth finish makes it easy and comfortable to slide on, as does its 7.5″ opening. The resin is light compared to most metal bracelets of a similar size, and while it does slide around quite a bit up and down my arm, it’s quite comfortable. I love the organic shape.
Do Not Disturb Diamond Star Studs – Retail Value $495.00, Member Price $395.00
Eee! Stars might just be my favorite shape for jewelry. I love these tiny star studs with their itty bitty rhinestones and gorgeous 14 karat gold metal. I know it’s a rental service, but these earrings are shining like new! They’re the kind of set that could get dressed up or down, depending on my mood. Cute and versatile!
The Verdict: This month’s picks were a lot of fun. I’m drooling over those Marni earrings, though I don’t think there’s any way I can afford them, even at the discounted cost. But hey, that’s the beauty of this subscription, right? I pay a fraction of what I would to buy just one of these pieces and get access to a bunch of unique styles from an ever-expanding catalog!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Once I return these pieces, they’ll be available again, but pieces can get snatched up quick! You can, however, always sign up and shop other earrings, necklaces, and bracelets they offer!
Value Breakdown: These three pieces cost $69.00 to rent, which is a great deal if it works for your budget and needs. It’s pricier than Rocksbox (which offers mid-range designer jewelry) but less than Rent the Runway (which offers designer jewelry, accessories, and clothes, too). To rent just one piece per month is $29.00, so you’re saving about $6.00 per piece to go for the larger subscription.
The member price for all of the pieces is $1145.00 in total. At retail, they’d cost $1445.00. Members also get $10.00 to put towards a piece, so that’s $1135.00 to buy everything.
