Rocksbox May 2019 review

Rocksbox is a designer jewelry styling and renting service. Members pay a flat rate every month to get unlimited access to the Rocksbox collection and the option to buy the pieces they love most at a discounted price. Right now, you can even get your first month of Rocksbox membership for free! (Read on to learn how, or check out our list of other free subscription boxes here!)

Rocksbox May 2019 review box

Upon subscribing, you’ll take a “style survey,” so Rocksbox can suggest jewelry pieces that fit your style. You can also browse their catalog and add pieces to your wish list. Each month, Rocksbox will curate sets of three pieces to send your way, including at least one piece from your wishlist.

Try on the items in the box, and wear them as long as you’d like. From there, you have two choices. If you love any of the pieces enough to want to keep them, you can put your monthly “Shine Credit” towards your purchase.

Or, if you’re ready for another style, return your box using the free shipping label and reusable envelope you got with your shipment. Shortly after, you’ll get a brand new box of jewelry to enjoy!

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

They also included a handy jewelry care card.

A free return shipping label is also at the bottom of the box. FYI: The outer envelope that Rocksbox ships inside doubles as a return shipping envelope! Be careful as you cut it open—there’s a second adhesive strip that can be used to reseal the envelope for its trip back.

Each jewelry item comes tucked inside its own protective pouch that can also be used as a polishing cloth.

Slate Serpentine Cuff in Silver – Listed Value $65.00, Member Price $55.00

I love this bangle so much! I like snakes this season (for some reason?) and this shining subtle serpent is a great accent that fits well and gives any outfit a little edge. The snake is highly detailed and this cuff is utterly stackable with your other favorites or your watch. I own a ton of cuffs in this open style and I love that they can be worn in different ways. This is probably my favorite bracelet from this sub yet!

Kendra Scott Brooklyn Earrings in Silver and Sky Blue Illusion – Retail Value $110.00, Member Price $110.00

Would I even be me if there wasn’t a Kendra Scott piece in my box? These long earrings are brushed silver and feature a beautiful sky blue cracked shell. The shell reflects tons of different colors when the light hits it. Though they are very pretty, I am not sure these are quite my style, which surprises me since I generally love most things from Kendra Scott. Is my style changing? Although they are long, they are lightweight and move beautifully.

Dusk Lake Pendant Necklace in Silver – Listed Value $70.00, Member Price $59.00

I love opal, even lab created, as this necklace is. The advantage of buying a faux opal is the price (of course!) and that lab created and synthetic opals are much more durable than their fragile, natural counterparts. The minimal bar pendant is really sleek and looks great alone or with other necklaces. It speaks to my love of simple necklaces that are just easy to wear and just add a little something to a look.

The Verdict: Rocksbox sent me two specific wishlist pieces this month. The snake bangle is by far my favorite and I really want to keep it! The opal bar necklace was an easy win. With such an effortless pendant shape it just begs to be worn and really adds a little extra polish to an outfit without any real work. The Kendra Scott earrings were pretty, but a little ‘meh’ too. Maybe my neck isn’t long enough? These earrings are exactly what I love about this sub though because from seeing them online alone, I would have assumed it would have been love at first sight. It wasn’t and since it was just a rental, no harm and I will know better for next time.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Every box is different and packed based on the customer’s tastes and what’s available at the time. You can, however, give the Rocksbox stylists a nudge by adding your favorite pieces to your wishlist!

Value Breakdown: Rocksbox membership costs $21.00 per month. At retail, the three pieces would cost me $224.00. With my Rocksbox discounts and the member pricing (including the buy-all-three-item discount, my $5 worth of Forever Credit that I have on my account, and the $21.00 of Shine Credit (the membership fee for the month, which goes towards your purchases), that price drops to $188.00.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. Loving these reviews, I’ve been subscribed to rocksbox for a few months now and I’m really enjoying it. I like seeing your choices and how you wear them!

    • Thanks so much Jenny! I am glad you are enjoying the subscription. It is so funny how my opinion changes when I actually get the jewelry in-hand (or in-ear I guess!)
