My Meraki Box “The Statement Collection” September 2018 Review
This month we wanted to design a collection of eye-catching pieces that would stand out in a crowd.
Each box includes an insert detailing the items included, as well as the collection theme. This month, I received items from the “Statement” collection.
Cusco Amethyst Necklace
This necklace features a raw amethyst pendant, set in sterling silver. The chain is a rolo chain, to support the substantial weight of the stone. I love that every one of these pieces is unique – and love that mine features a beautiful brown geode pattern at the top.
This necklace measures 20 inches end to end, with the stone measuring about 1.5 inches.
Here it is on to show length, I’m also wearing this month’s earrings in this photo.
This classic pair of chandelier earrings are made from solid sterling silver, and feature teardrop accents with a center cut out. The measure about 2 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. I love the subtle jingle that they make and the fluid, natural movement when you walk!
Here’s a close up of the earrings. They’re a great length – and are very light to wear!
Note, that this was a variation item – and some boxes included a European suede bracelet featuring a dual floral motive and hook style clasp in brushed sterling silver. Did anyone get that piece? I’d love to see it!
Azucena Leather Wrap Bracelet (Forest)
This leather wrap bracelet was the color choice of the month – and I selected forest green (from the choices of black, chestnut, forest, grey, and purple). This is a quadruple wrap, which used my color selection of European leader suede. My favorite feature though (and I adore the color of the leather!) is the beautiful brushed sterling silver clasp. I will live in this piece this fall, for sure!
Thank You Gift: Tassel Keychain
This month’s special extra is a luxurious solid body butter (made with coconut oil) from EmElleEmSoaps. This is perfect for your handbag this fall!
Verdict: I love this My Meraki Box and the variety offered from month to month. Their themes are broad enough that this box never feels stale! I continue to be impressed by the attention to detail and quality of the product! I also think that the pricing is very fair – the quality and value well exceeds the price to me! This is one of my absolute favorite subscriptions – I can’t wait to see what they design for us next month!
Since these are all exclusive items, and I couldn’t find great comparison items in their shop, I can’t really estimate what I think the value is. I can say though, that each one of these pieces would likely retail for AT LEAST $40 – giving this box a value of AT LEAST $120 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: At $59.99 for this box, you’re paying $19.99 per piece (not including the special extra) – which I think is an amazing value!
