Switch Designer Jewelry Rental October 2018 - Box Review Top 4

Switch is a jewelry rental service that lets you try out designer jewelry without the commitment. You pick your favorite pieces and try them out for as long as you want with a monthly fee. This is a review of the 3 pieces at a time plan.

Switch also offers the option to purchase jewelry pieces at a discounted member price. For every month that you’re a member, you get a $10 credit that you can use towards the purchase of a piece of jewelry at the special member price.

Switch will always use USPS First Class mail to send your jewelry unless it weighs more than 1 pound. Each package comes with a prepaid USPS return label so you can leave your return for your mail carrier or drop it off at the post office if you’re the nervous type. Shipping is free both ways, and they just ask that you package it just as you received it to return to them. It’s important to save the mailer and packaging for your return.

The final two inserts explain how you can refer a friend (for each friend you refer you get an additional $10 towards your membership) and how to purchase pieces if you fall in love with one of them. When you activate your subscription, you get to select the pieces that you want to receive from their available inventory. They’ve also recently incorporated a “favoriting” function where you can star pieces for future selections!

Alexis Bittar Crystal Studded Spur Lace Cuff – Retail Value $245, Member Price $240

I wanted to love this piece, but it was just too small on my wrist. Bummer, because it’s absolutely gorgeous! With its gold-tone and Swarovski crystal accents, it is a knockout piece. For reference, my wrist is about 6 ¼” in diameter and as you can see from the photos, gave me the sausage look.

Do Not Disturb The Copenhagen Ring (14k Yellow Gold and DIamonds) Size 7 – Retail Value $395, Member Price $355

I really loved this asymmetrical ring, and it fits me well – although there is a discrepancy on the website. It’s listed as both a size 7 in the title and size 6 in the description. I believe it to be a size 7 based on the size of my fingers. Its total diamond weight is 0.155 carats and it’s a stunning everyday piece. Hands down, this was the star this month for me!

Lele Sadoughi Crystal Lily Earrings – Leopard – Retail Value $198, Member Price $165

I wanted to love these but they were a miss for me (but this is the value in this rental – you can simply return and get something you like better! Yay!)… they are pretty, but they’re clip-on, which I personally don’t like to wear because I find them annoying and painful. I didn’t know they were clip-on when I ordered, otherwise I would have selected a different item. I do see now that it says it in the description – so this is on me and not Switch – I’ll have to read more carefully next time! Aside from the clip-on issue, these beauty’s are hand swirled leopard print and feature ¾” pave crystal centers. They’re sizable, measuring 3” long by 2 ½” wide. They definitely make a statement and I think they’d look awesome with a black sweater and black pants for a chic fall look.

The Verdict: I would be hard-pressed to ever have a bad feeling about a sub that lets me borrow essentially unlimited amounts (you can switch your pieces at any time, and have 3 pieces out for $69/month) of this type of jewelry from luxury brands. I picked the pieces, so obviously I was excited by what I got – and even though I didn’t love all the pieces, I was pleased to be able to try them out and see them in person!

In this shipment, I tried out $838 worth of jewelry for $69 – which is about 8.4% of their retail value. That’s a solid deal right there!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Pieces can get snatched up quickly, and the number of pieces they have per style varies. You may or may not see these pieces in their available inventory list – but you might just see something you like even more! This isn’t a “styled” subscription, meaning you can pick exactly what you want from the available list. It’s not selected for you based on an algorithm or your preferences.

Coupon: Save 50% off your first month with coupon code LOVEMSA

Value Breakdown: These three pieces cost $69.00 to rent, which is a great deal if it works for your budget and needs. It’s pricier than Rocksbox (which offers mid-range designer jewelry) but less than Rent the Runway (which offers designer jewelry, accessories, and clothes, too). To rent just one piece per month is $29.00, so you’re saving about $6.00 per piece to go for the larger subscription.

The member price for all 3 of these pieces is $760 in total. At retail, they’d cost $838. Members get $10.00 to put toward a piece, so that’s $750 to buy everything, which is around a 10% discount. I am not buying anything this month, but if I were it would definitely be the Do Not Disturb ring!

Colette’s subscription addiction started innocently enough with a few beauty boxes in 2013. As her life has evolved, so have her subscriptions – and some of her favorites now include boxes that cater towards lifestyle (Popsugar Must Have), pets (BarkBox), and children (Gap Outfit Box and Mac & Mia).

  1. Too bad about the earrings. As someone who works in tech, it would be sooooo easy to put a pierced only indicator on your profile. Then, if you select a non-pierced item they could display a warning. Literally 5 minutes of work for a major payoff.

    • Awesome idea!!

  2. Those earrings are awful but the bracelet was stunning! $245 stunning no but a nice piece.

    • Yes, that’s the fun part of this sub!! 🙂
