Luxor Box Limited Edition Black Box 2018 Review
In addition to their bi-monthly subscription box, Luxor box also does Limited Edition boxes. This review is for their Special Edition Luxor Black Box. (No longer available).
The packaging on this box is fantastic. It’s definitely a box you will want to keep and reuse for gifting or storage.
And every item came in its own packaging, so you could definitely break this box down into lots of gifts.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
FYI this box is no longer available for sale, but here are the box details:
The Box: Luxor Box Limited Edition Black Box
The Cost: $700 for US, $780 for Canada
Good to know: “Free shipping and will ship in the month of October, 2018. ALL Luxor BLACK boxes will be shipped with signature confirmation due to the high value of this box. Limited quantities and only available while supplies last. One time purchase, not a recurring subscription.”
The box comes with individual cards for each item included. First up:
Kiko Versatile Shoulder Bag – Retail Value $225
I discovered Kiko thanks to Luxor and I really am impressed with the quality of their leather goods. (I always expect the retail price to actually be more than it is.) The Kiko leather tote from Luxor’s Travel Box is one of my all-time favorite Luxor items.
This pebbled-leather bag is a shoulder bag and backpack in one. It features an adjustable shoulder strap + adjustable backpack straps.
It has a zippered top, and inside there are open pockets and a zippered pocket.
Here it is on as a shoulder bag:
And as a backpack:
My only critique is that I wish the straps were removable so that when you are wearing it as a shoulder bag the backpack straps weren’t hanging from it. Aside from that, it’s great!
Kiko Top Zip Wallet – Retail Value $65
This wallet has the same pebbled leather material as the bag. And the design of this wallet is perfect for me.
It snaps shut, but also has a zippered section that is large enough to fit cash, receipts, etc. And there are plenty of pockets for cards, cash etc.
Halcyon Days Palladium Sparkle Button in Snow Leopard Print – Retail Value $215
This bangle features the classic Halycon Days claps, but this one is encrusted with glass crystals!
The snow leopard print is surrounded by palladium plating. Here it is on:
And we have more jewelry:
LaSoula Jewelry Lux Baguette Diamond Earrings – Retail Value $750
LaSoula Jewelry Lux Baguette Diamond Necklace – Retail Value $800
This necklace features a sterling silver chain and a diamond total wt: 0.224. It’s super delicate and the chain is about 18 inches long. (The diamond piece measures about 1 cm across.)
Here is the necklace on:
This is the perfect amount of sparkle for me – I think it will be lovely layered with a few other necklaces, too.
And the earrings match the necklace:
These earrings have a diamond total wt: 0.248 and they are small and delicate just like the necklace. (They measure just over 1/2 a cm in length.)
Rose et Marius Neou Beige Tumbler + Wooden Floor Candle – Retail Value $150
Rose et Marius Tomato Red Tumbler + Rose Wine Candle – Retail Value $150
Inside the box are two tumblers with candles:
These tumblers can be used with their refillable candles and/or diffusers. (They cast a beautiful glow with a lit candle inside.)
These tumblers are porcelain, hand-painted, and accented with platinum. And once you burn through the candle (60 hour burn time), you can put these tumblers in the dishwasher to clean them.
And the tumblers come with a certificate of authenticity:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $2355. That’s a crazy value to even type, but considering the box costs $700, I think it’s a good value. (With 7 items in this box for $700, that works out to $100 an item.)
Obviously, this is a lot of money to spend on a mystery box, so I appreciate that Luxor Box spoiled the LaSoula diamond necklace and earrings upfront. If you were happy with those items at the $700 price, I think all the other items would likely be a hit for you, too. Luxor box played it safe with this box and delivered brands + items that are super popular with their subscribers. And at this price point, I think playing it safe is the way to go! (And I appreciate that there are no beauty items in this box – just a good mix of jewelry, leather goods, and home items.) Nothing feels like “filler” in this box.
