Here’s the info card for the pack.

Double Link Bracelet – Listed Value $18.00

This 7.5″ bracelet is light and delicate. I like that the focal point of the piece isn’t a pendant—these linking gold loops have a three-dimensional element that’s understated while still modern and fresh.

Mountain Stamped Necklace – Retail Value $22.00

I like the abstract mountain design on this half-inch wide pendant. The necklace itself is 18.5″ with a few different loops to adjust it with. This is a more traditional necklace compared to the 3D designs in the pack, but it’s cute and perfect for outdoor adventures this summer.

Double Link Necklace – Listed Value $22.00

This 18.5″ necklace matches the bracelet in the box. It’s equally light and effortless. I could see this necklace framed in the neckline of a snazzy LBD!

The Verdict: I’ve been really loving the upscale vibe of this subscription lately. They’ve moved from featuring cute themed pendants to doing more avant-garde pieces like the 3D linking loops. Getting coordinated pieces is nice, though the fact that everything has a similar finish means that these looks will match previous packs I’ve gotten, too. The only thing I’m bummed about is that they seem to have abandoned the bonus enamel pins that used to be included in each pack, but so long as I keep getting unique, high-quality jewelry (which holds up really really well, I’ve noticed), I’m happy!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but sign up for their next available 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 $62.00. That means that, proportionally, I paid the following for each item:

  1. Can anyone tell me how long these pieces hold up for you? I know this is probably coated in yellow gold, not actual gold, but is the item itself silver (aka gold plated over silver)? Or just brass?

  2. I missed the pin too. I emailed and they said they were revamping the boutique and hoped to have it back in the future.

    I know it’s silly but the pin really bummed me out! I was looking forward to it.

  3. I love this sub….

    I also missed the pin. I have a small collection on my summer hat.

    I hope it returns.

  4. I wish I could still get this! This whole set is so lovely.

    • The items sometimes appear in the shop the month after they are featured. There used to be a cheat where you could access the current month’s stuff through Facebook, but I’m guessing that’s been fixed.

    • These are all in the boutique on the website now. I just ordered the necklace last week when I signed up for the sub for the first time. Of course they are more expensive than they would have been as part of the sub….

  5. Did anyone else have a weird necklace chain? On mine some of the links seem jumbled for lack of a better word. The way chains get when they aren’t hanging. But these I can’t get back into their proper linkage. They seem to be stuck. I really love the style of this sub, and I sub on and off depending on the spoilers, but I thought the quality felt a little lacking compared to when I was last subbing. I hate to say that because they are completely my style and I think it’s a smoking good deal for the price. Maybe it was just this month.

    • I’ve had the twisty chain issue as well. It seems like all the design energy goes into the charms and the chains are just something they buy in bulk. I’ve been thinking of switching mine onto chains from Jo-Anns or Michaels.

    • not for this particular one but another one, yes. I was tempted to ask them for an exchange but managed to figure it out by twisting a loop or two

  6. I got this set in rose gold and it’s exactly my style so I’m very happy. I wear my jewelry from this sub all the time and nothing has every broken. I love getting pretty jewelry every month, and it’s so easy to skip months or switch to a different metal.

  7. oh wow, I did not notice about the pins which is sad because I’ve truly loved their pins.

    • I know! The adorable llama was my favorite pin of all time.

      • AGREED! I’m hoping this is just an off month for them. Bring back the cute pins!

      • My favorite is the origami bird of many colors
