Penny + Grace September 2018 Bracelet and Necklace Review

Here’s the info card for the pack.

Salem Stamped Cat Necklace – Listed Value $22.00

The nerd in me hopes that this necklace is named after Salem from Sabrina the Teenage Witch! I’m a big cat fan (shoutout to my fuzzy friends, Nigella and Jamie!), so I’m smitten with the dime-sized pendant on this simple necklace. I could see layering it with other looks or wearing it by itself. It’s about 19″ long including 3″ of extender chain.

Mia Square Bracelet – Listed Value $18.00

Next up is this bracelet, which is pretty simple, apart from the diamonds dotted along it. I like how lightweight it is, and that it has about 3″ of extender chain on it. It’s classy, but the diamond shapes remind me of the studs you’d see on a belt or moto jacket, which give it a kind of edgy vibe.

Mia Square Necklace – Listed Value $26.00

This long necklace mirrors the design of the bracelet. If I wear longer necklaces like this one, they’re typically pendant-style pieces, so I’m excited to try something new. It’s about 29″ long including 3″ of extender chain.

The Verdict: I liked the simple selection of jewelry in this month’s pack. It’s nice when there’s a nod to holidays (like the Halloween-inspired cat necklace) without it being too blatant that you can’t wear the piece the rest of the year (or at all if you’re not a holiday fan). It’s cool that two of the pieces explicitly match, but I like that I could easily wear the bracelet and cat necklace together just because the metals match.

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 $66.00. That means that, proportionally, each item cost the following:

  1. How does this jewelry hold up? I want to subscribe but I am rough on jewelry unfortunately.

    • It’s humid where I live so I gave up on penny and grace. All my pieces but enamel pins have tarnished.

    • Hi! I’m rough on my jewelry, too. I haven’t had any issues with the pieces breaking or tarnishing. I’ve been purchasing this subscription for many months now. I really love it!

      • Thanks for the feedback ladies. I’m in GA so very humid here as well. I’m going to give it a try and see…hopefully I will have the same luck as Maria.

    • My gold turned very brassy looking and the earrings have all tarnished. Some of my silver is important good shape, though.

    • I’ve been subscribed for 4 months and 2 of my bracelets have broken and fallen right off my wrist and almost all of the necklaces get knots in them. I am debating if I want to continue as some of the pieces are only good for about a month.

  2. The cat necklace also gave me Sabrina vibes! I’m hoping that they’ll eventually return the pins but other than that I really enjoyed this month’s bag. Can’t wait to see the October spoiler!

    • I miss the pins, too!!! They were always such a fun little extra. Fingers crossed they come back!
