Penny + Grace Subscription Review – October 2018
Penny + Grace is a monthly jewelry subscription box specifically designed for people who just love that minimalist, delicate aesthetic. Pick your preferred color of metal—gold, silver, or rose gold—and you’ll receive a monthly set of jewelry to satisfy your tastes.
According to the Penny + Grace site, “each delivery is guaranteed to contain a combined retail value of $45+ (USD) in varying jewelry pieces tailored to your color/metal choice.”
Everything comes inside this little canvas pouch. They’re great for pencils, or to use to keep your bag sorted on trips!
The individual pieces come tucked inside these drawstring pouches. It’s nice to have a safe place to store them, rather than just tossing them in my jewelry box—the bags keep things from getting scratched up.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Penny + Grace October 2018 Stacking Rings and Necklace Review
Here’s the info card for the pack.
Camille Zig Zag Necklace – Listed Value $32.00
I LOVE this necklace! It’s one of the pricier pieces I’ve gotten via this subscription, going by what’s listed on the info card. It feels cool and modern, but the bitty rhinestones dotting the front of the pendant give it a sophisticated edge.
Camille Stacking Ring (Mirror) – Listed Value $12.95
I think this is the first time I’ve gotten TWO rings in a pack! As you’ll see, they’re almost identical, except for the finishes. The zig zag pattern also echoes the shape of the necklace in a really cool way. I’ve had Halloween on the brain lately, so I’m digging the toothy, fang-like shape of this ring.
Camille Stacking Ring (Satin) – Listed Value $12.95
Here’s the second ring. Pretty much the same as the first, except this one has more of a matte finish to it.
They look cool separately, but I think they’re designed to be worn together. I kind of wish they were billed as a set, rather than two separate pieces.
As you can see, everything coordinates nicely. I like that the pieces in this subscription box generally coordinate, if loosely, with one another. Sometimes it’s just because of the similar metals, but often, it’s because the patterns or shapes echo one another. (I know you’re all hoping that very chic black hair elastic is included in the pack, but sadly, I brought that exquisite accessory from home 😉)
The Verdict: This month’s Penny + Grace set was one of the more matchy-matchy assortments I’ve gotten recently, but I liked it for that reason. It makes it really easy to whip up an entire jewelry look before running out the door. As I mentioned, though, I did feel like the two rings were SO similar that they felt like they were almost one item, rather than two. Often at stores, stacking rings are sold together, so I was surprised to see these split up. I also say that because I would have loved to see this zig zag pattern reimagined as earrings or a bracelet!
