mintMONGOOSE September 2018 Review
This month, I received a matching necklace and earring set along with a woven bracelet. Let’s take a look!
But first, let’s look at the options for customization:
You can pick your preferred jewelry tone. I chose “Surprise me!”
Then you choose earrings or no earrings. My ears are pierced, so I chose “Earrings.”
Next, you choose if you want watches to be included or not. I don’t really need any more watches, so I chose “No Watches.”
A little tag is attached to each bag with information about a promo for the online shop.
Turquoise Teardrop Y-Necklace
The necklace included this month has a long, Y-shape with antiqued gold metal, small stones of varying colors, and a larger teardrop pendant in a beautiful turquoise color at the end. I like the shape of this necklace, but I find it a bit difficult to pair with the right neckline. I think a high crew neck would probably work best unless you wanted to go full V-neck.
Turquoise Teardrop Earrings
These earrings perfectly compliment the necklace with the same teardrop shape dangling from a dainty chain. Plus, there are two ways to wear them – with the dangly teardrop (which is attached to the regular backs) or as simple studs with which you can use the included wide backs. I love when earrings have multiple ways to wear them.
Adjustable Woven Bracelet
I can’t help but notice how different this style of bracelet is compared to the other jewelry. It’s woven from multi-colored waxed cords and has a nautical, summery feel. Only one side of the knot slides, but it still provides plenty of room to adjust the length. This bracelet isn’t really my style but I can see it working perfectly for someone with a beachier vibe.
Bonus: L’Oreal 2-Step Nail Polish and Top Coat in 911 Passionate Petal
Since this is my third month of receiving mintMONGOSE, a bonus gift was included in my package. Subscribers will receive a bonus gift every three months when subscribed.
The Verdict: I like the look of this month’s necklace and earrings and love that I can wear the earrings two different ways. The bracelet is cute, just not my style. I think the quality is fitting for a $15.70 jewelry subscription ($12 a month plus $3.70 shipping) and I like that the styles vary. This is a fun option for someone who likes a little surprise sparkle every month for a low price.
