Here's the info card for the pack.

Saguaro Point Necklace - Listed Value $28.00

This crystal bar pendant feels really sophisticated. It toes the line between being traditional and modern, too. The pendant itself is about 18 inches long, with three links along the last 3 inches. I'm wearing it on the longest setting in this photo. I like the subtle glisten of the rhinestones!

Saguaro Point Ring - Listed Value $22.00

They included a ring to match! Again, I think this vertical bar has such classic vibes while still looking edgy. I could see wearing this piece as part of a polished work look or something snazzier.

Saguaro Point Bracelet - Listed Value $24.00

Last but not least is this bracelet, which turns the bar shape on its side. I thought this was a really nice, very wearable interpretation of this "Saguaro" theme. (A perpendicular bar would've just looked weird, I think.) The bar isn't as dramatic as the others, because it's horizontal, but you still get the glitz from the rhinestones. PS, this bracelet is about 8.5" long with 3 links at the end of the chain.

The only downside of the bracelet is that if you fasten it at the shortest setting, there's a bit of chain that dangles down by your hand. Since I can't see myself going looser, I'll probably see if I can detach the rest of the chain, so there's no extra.

The Verdict: If you're into really simple jewelry, or if you're a fan of layering looks rather than wearing one big statement piece, then I definitely recommend this subscription. I've found that the jewelry wears really well (most of the pieces I've had for several months now have yet to tarnish too much nor turn my neck green), plus they're a lot of fun to layer. I appreciate that the looks coordinate so well, too. But you do have to be ready for very simple styles!

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 items inside (based on the values listed on the info card) is $74.00. That means that, proportionally, each item cost the following:

  • Necklace - $7.56
  • Ring - $5.94
  • Bracelet - $6.48

The average cost per item based on the price of the subscription is $6.66.

I like this sub a lot, but don’t wear rings (other than engagement, wedding and mother’s) so I’m getting a little bummed that the last two months have been rings. I hope they start sending either earrings or a second bracelet, as they have in the past, soon.

Reading that small print is hard. I can’t read that. It hurt my eyes.
