Monthly Xio Bag May 2019 Review
The theme of this month’s box is “In Full Bloom,” featuring adorable flowery pieces and simple yet stylish accessories to coordinate.
On the back of the info card, Xio lists each item featured as well as what each accessory is made of and its retail value. Each piece is made up of 925 sterling silver, and the gold pieces are plated 925 sterling silver.
Florecita Ring – Listed Retail Value $35
This wrap around daisy ring is so pretty and delicate! The cubic zirconias dazzle and frame the yellow gem in the middle of the flower perfectly. I do wish the sizing was a little more generous to accommodate larger sizes, though. I wear a size 6 on my ring finger, and I felt like it almost fell a little short to wear like a normal ring. I love this styled as a midi ring, though, which is perfect for my fingers (see photos below).
Be My Sunshine Bracelet – Listed Retail Value $45
I love colorful gems, and sunny yellow is really doing it for me this spring! This minimal style bracelet has just enough shine to accentuate the other pieces in this month’s box without being too matchy or flashy. The silver and gold options layer nicely together, but really you could pair this with anything to add a little sparkle or wear it alone for a dainty look. The closure is your typical spring ring, but I didn’t have a hard time putting these on myself.
Sp-ring Fling Ring – Listed Retail Value $45
I’ve always loved the look of this type of ring, so I was pretty excited to see this in this month’s box. It is encrusted with CZ gems all along the front, and the back has an adjustable closure. The size of this piece seemingly elongates my somewhat stubby fingers, which is definitely a plus for me! It is also very comfortable to wear, no pinching or interfering when I bend my fingers – definitely a win!
Here are the two rings and bracelets in silver and gold; I am really liking all three of these accessories!
Send Flowers Necklace – Listed Retail Value $55
Predictably, this necklace is my favorite find this month and maybe my favorite necklace I own right now. The little flowers are adorable; I can’t stop wearing this out, probably because I’ve received so many compliments on it already! This necklace has five flowers full of CZ gems to light up any look. The chain on this necklace measures 19 inches total with a 4-inch extender, so you could wear it as a choker or a longer style.
Blooming Studs – Listed Retail Value $35
Of course, I adore these bloom studs, too! They match perfectly with the necklace and Florecita ring without being too much of a good thing. These darling studs, as with the other pieces, have the same cubic zirconia accents with the yellow gem in the middle.
Check out that shine below:
The Verdict: Monthly Xi0 Bag is my monthly source of festive jewelry. I always feel prepared when I go out now because I know I’ll have the perfect accessories for any fun look, thanks to this subscription. Now that XIO offers a silver option, I feel like it definitely caters to a vaster audience. The “Take a Chance” theme with its green gems and lucky coins add a cute touch for St. Patrick’s day — another great month for XIO!
The retail prices individually are pretty expensive, and I don’t know if I would pay full price for any of these pieces, but I think $70 is a deal for all five, and if you’re a subscriber, you can get 20% off any jewelry purchase on their website. The total retail value of this box comes to $215 this month.
