My Meraki Box Jewelry Subscription Review – December 2018
My Meraki Box is (IMO) an amazing monthly subscription box by Wristicuffs, an indie jewelry company offering several lines of accessories. Meraki is a Greek word meaning “To do something with soul, creativity, or love; when you leave a piece of yourself in your work.”
Each month, this box will feature new exclusive designs, only available to subscribers. You will be able to log in and select your preference of either leather, gemstone, or metal color options. This information will be used to create customized jewelry just for you in a design and color you are sure to love!
Every box will include at least 3 brand new Wristicuffs designs, exclusive to this box with a minimum $100 retail value. Subscribers will also enjoy special perks – like a 15% off everyday discount and a custom piece of jewelry every year to celebrate your anniversary with My Meraki Box!
The box comes wrapped neatly and feels like a gift to unwrap!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

My Meraki Box Subscription Review “The Mixed Gemstone Collection” – December 2018
“December is a month of celebration bursting with glitz and glam, and this vibrant collection will make you sparkle during any holiday festivity! An exquisite mix of gemstones was carefully chosen to make each piece a unique combination of eye-catching color that will be sure to turn heads.”
Each box includes an insert detailing the items included, as well as the collection theme. This month, I received items from the “The Mixed Gemstone” collection.
Thank You Gift: Gourmet Butter & Cream Fudge – Estimated Value ~$4.40 USD ($6.00 CAD)
This month’s special extra is artisanal fudge from FudgeFix in Moose Jaw, SK. I received the “Death by Chocolate Moose” flavor and let me tell you – it was everything I wanted in a fudge! I prefer getting another Wristicuffs piece as the special extra, but this was a nice holiday treat. I’m glad it arrived in December and before my Keto resolution of 2019!
Mixed Gemstone Necklace
This necklace is perfect! It sparkles, is a friendly mix of colors that will go with many different pallets, has some asymmetrical character, and is both delicate enough to wear with jeans and a solid T-shirt and fancy enough to stand out against an LBD! Although everyone received a necklace in their box this month, there was significant variation with them – and might have included any mix of amethyst, citrine, labradorite, garnet, green amethyst, moonstone, beer quartz, or mother of pearl. As you can see, the necklace the I received contained amethyst and green amethyst. The pendant is about 1.5” long and about 0.5” wide and is on a 16” thin sterling silver chain. The stones themselves are also set in solid sterling silver. The insert says that every necklace is different – I would certainly love to see what others have received!
This beaded single stretch bracelet is customized to fit your wrist perfectly and is comprised mainly of smokey quartz beads accented with a couple of sterling silver bezel-set mixed gemstone charms, including your color choice of the month. My bracelet again features an amethyst stone (and I tend to love purples, which is why I selected that as my stone choice this month) and what I believe to be a moonstone charm. This bracelet is comfortable, casual, and the smokey quartz is a perfect complement to dark denim and brown cowboy ankle boots, a staple look in my wardrobe!
These sterling silver post earrings feature 3 stones – amethyst, blue topaz, and peridot. They are super light and comfortable to wear, even with an almost 2” length!
And here I am wearing the necklace and the earrings. Even in my late night, no-makeup state you can see how lovely these pieces are!
Verdict: This box continues to deliver on value, style, quality, and charm. The variety keeps me engaged from month to month. The packaging makes it feel like a special treat – and I love that I get to pick something every month (a color, a style, a material, whatever!) that tailors the box to my preferences. The customer service has been great, the regularity of the shipping is refreshing – it’s a fabulous box that I’d recommend gifting to that special person in your life.
Since these are all exclusive items, and nothing on their website currently is an apple to apple comparison, I’m going to just say that given the going rate of their pieces I think this is a fantastic value. This box costs $59.99 and I received 3 jewelry pieces – making each piece $20, not including the special extra fudge!
