My Meraki Box “The Mystic Quartz Collection” Review
The changing colors of mystic quartz appear deep, mysterious and unusual. It appears to display a kaleidoscope of rainbow colors making this gemstone mesmerizing. This collection was designed to celebrate its beauty.
Each box includes an insert detailing the items included, as well as the collection theme. This month, I received items from the “Mystic Quartz” collection.
Olinda Mystic Quartz Necklace – Estimated Value $64.99 (based on a similar item here)
This necklace features a dime-sized mystic quartz set in a radiant sterling silver setting. The delicate chain is 18″ long, my preferred length for everyday wear. To me, this stone throws pinks and purples, but when paired with darker colors I pick up more greens and blues. I love how it can match almost everything, easily making it a wardrobe staple for me this fall!
I think there is beauty on the back of this piece and would even wear it backward for a more frosted, matte look.
Tecoma Beaded Bracelet – Estimated Value $44.99 (based on a similar item here)
This stretch beaded bracelet was the custom selection choice this month. I selected the blue agate option (out of black onyx, blue agate, green agate, and rose agate) and I love it! Because this subscription considers your actual wrist size and custom makes the bracelets to order, your bracelet will be made to fit your wrist specifically. As you can see in the photos, it’s a perfect fit for me! I especially love the mystic quartz stone and the sterling silver and quartz accent beads that make it a perfect match to the necklace.
Giovanna Leather Wrap Bracelet – Estimated Value $69.99 (based on a similar item here)
The clasp on this bracelet is genius – It’s magnetic and hidden in the abalone shell mother of pearl mosaic. This black leather, braided, triple wrap bracelet again is customized to your specific wrist size. It just feels like a great quality piece, and again, compliments the other pieces in this box so well!
Here are the bracelets together – they coordinate, without being too matchy-matchy.
Bonus: Obsidian Spike Earrings
This month’s special extra is another Wristicuffs piece! These hypoallergenic, stainless steel are adorable, edgy spikes. I have nothing like them, and I think they’re perfect for Halloween! I love that they’re black, with a gray marbling effect. To me, they almost look like tiny witches hats!
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 am continually impressed by the craftsmanship, ingenuity, design, and practicality that this subscription offers! 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, I’m using similar items to roughly quantify value. From what I can glean from their shop pricing, I received around $180 worth of jewelry (not including the special extra earrings, which would be at least $20 retail). I think is fantastic for a $59.99 box that includes free US shipping and allows you customization options every month! Said another way – I received 4 jewelry pieces for $60 – making each piece $15. Also, I’d like to point out that each piece comes in its own little easily giftable package. Perfect considering the holidays are right around the corner!
