My Meraki Box “Boho Collection” July 2018 Review
For this collection, we wanted to design pieces that were not perfectly matched yet co-ordinated to give that relaxed, summery, boho vibe.
Each box includes an insert detailing the items included, as well as the collection theme. This month, I received items from the boho collection. Each of the items comes packaged beautifully and can easily be gifted!
Indio Arrowhead Necklace – Estimated Value $64.99 (Similar item here)
This is a statement necklace, and I can honestly say that I owned zero arrowhead anything before today. It’s kind of edgy for my normal preppy look – but I think I can pull it off. I already am planning a few occasions to wear this quarter and sterling silver beauty – perhaps with a denim sundress to a summer concert, or maybe to the office with a classic white blouse and black pants. I think I can dress it up or down – and I love that it’s a little out of my (broad) comfort zone! The raw hand-carved quartz is perfect, it’s eye-catching and beautiful, but neutral enough to go with anything. I also love that this relatively heavy stone is placed on a very sturdy sterling silver swage chain, so I won’t be worried about losing this piece.
The chain measures 18” long and the pendant is approximately 1.5” top to bottom and 0.75” wide at the broadest point.
Allegra Beaded Tassel Bracelet – Retail Value $44.99 (Similar item here)
My color section this month (pink) was used to create this beaded stretch bracelet. Tiny solid sterling silver geometric beads are used to separate the accent stones, and the bracelet features a color coordinated tassel. The bracelet measures around 7.5” and has some stretch, and the tassel extends about 1.5”.
About two-thirds of the bracelet features lava beads, which can be used with essential oils! I think this is pretty neat. I’m new to essential oils, but not new to jewelry – and I love that this piece is designed to absorb a few drops that might help my day run a little smoother! Looking for reader tips here – what oils would you use?
Skye Beaded Tassel Wrap Bracelet – Retail Value $74.99 (Similar item here)
This is the first beaded wrap bracelet created by Wristicuffs! The site commonly offers “sets” – but it’s super fun to see a stretchy wrap bracelet offered using the same quality craftsmanship that I’ve come to expect from this brand. I believe this item is offered in every box and measures around 16” in circumference.
Made with top quality aromatic sandalwood and clear quartz which has been frosted, this bracelet features a tassel to coordinate the Allegra bracelet. Separating each quartz, we have used the same geometric solid sterling silver beads to complete the look.
Leaving no detail out, in addition to the on-trend tassel, this piece features a sterling silver feather that coordinates with the arrowhead found on the necklace. I LOVE that they don’t feel the need to be “matchy-matchy” all of the time!
Another branded silver embellishment is also included on this bracelet.
Here are both bracelets on my wrist. The single bracelet fits me a bit better, and the wrap is a little on the large size for my 6.5” wrist. It’s fun to note that this piece can also double as a short necklace (would have to stretch over your head) or an anklet – which is the route I might go with it this summer!
Thank You Gift: Me to We Bracelet Stack – Retail Value $15.00 (Similar item here)
This month’s special extra is a spotlight on Me to We. This bracelet stack was handmade by an artisan in Kenya, and the proceeds from each Me to We purchase go towards providing food, water, health, education, or opportunity in developing countries.
Verdict: My Meraki Box just keeps getting better, and I continue to be impressed by the attention to detail and quality of the product! I also think that the pricing is very fair – both for the subscription box and even just to buy individual items off of their website. I’m definitely going to keep it in mind for some future gift giving occasions – I have several family members and friends that would love this style of jewelry.
Since these are all exclusive items, I calculated the total value of this box using comparable product pricing. I’m estimating that this box would retail for $184.97 (not including the special extra), which I think is fantastic for a $59.99 box that allows you customization options every month!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, this box ships on the first of every month, so if you sign up today your first box will ship on September 1st.
Value Breakdown: This box costs $59.99 + free shipping, which means that each of the 3 items in the box (not including the bonus gift) has an average cost of $20.
