mintMONGOOSE December 2018 Review

This month, I received a matching necklace and earring set along with a coordinating ring all in silver tone metal. 

Here are 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 wear my current watch exclusively, so I chose “No Watches.”

Crystal Cluster Necklace

This month, the jewelry is all set in bright, shiny, silver-tone metal. This necklace is simple yet sparkly with a cluster of crystals as the pendant. The pairing of small pale yellow and blush stones with the large clear stones is beautiful and coordinates well with many outfits. The back is polished and finished with a MintMOONGOOSE stamp.

Crystal Drop Earrings

These simple crystal drops are a perfect match for the necklace. They are light and small, perfect for adding a touch of sparkle to any outfit.

Criss Cross Ring

This month, the third item is a ring again! I like that this ring is larger in scale but still looks minimal because of the open space within the crisscrosses. I adjusted it down to almost as small as it will go, but I have small fingers, so there is plenty of room to make it comfortable for a wide range of fingers.

The Verdict: This might be my favorite month of MintMOONGOOSE so far! The jewelry never looks super expensive but this month is more elegant than normal. I like that the small-scale glitz is easy to wear on a normal day and not just to be saved for a night out. The price for this subscription is pretty affordable at $15.70 ($12 a month plus $3.70 shipping) and you get fun pieces in varying styles that will probably last you a season or two with normal wear. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? mintMONGOOSE uses your style preferences to curate a box suited to you. You might not get the same items I did, but you may end up with pieces that are even better for you. If you sign up today, your first box will most likely be in January. Subscriptions renew on the 20th of every month for the following month’s shipment.

Coupon – Use code HEYTHERE to save 15% off your first box!

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $15.70 ($12 + $3.70 shipping), which means that each of the 3 pieces has an average cost of $5.23.

  1. March 2020 was my first month receiving MintMONGOOSE and I am pleased with the jewelry that I have received.
    I reached out to the company after I was given a discount code that did not work. Helena replied to my email and was very kind.
    I plan to wear my jewelry but if I should get a piece or two that I know that I am not going to wear than it is still not money wasted because I can give it as a gift.

  2. I’ve just started this box in April 2019 but I love it I know I won’t always love all the jewelry the same because it’s different from month to month.

  3. I didn’t like this box but I did keep the ring. I gifted the other items. This is the only box I didn’t care for though so that’s something.

  4. Those pieces look great on you!
