My Meraki Box Jewelry Subscription Review – May 2019
My Meraki Box is (IMO) an amazing monthly jewelry 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 “The Nature Collection” Review
This month we wanted to create a collection inspired by the simple beauty of some of our favorite elements found in nature.
Each box includes an insert detailing the items included, as well as the collection theme. This month, I received items from the “The Nature Collection”.
Each of the items comes in either a sturdy little jewelry box or a small velvet bag. In addition to the standard branded boxes, this month two additional small black ring boxes were included.
Isla Triple Wrap Leather Bracelet – Estimated Value $64.99 (based on a similar item here)
I love receiving bracelets, as they are custom fit for your wrist based on the size you provide. This beautiful embossed European leather features a delicate, raised pattern in a floral design. The color leather was our special choice this month and I selected gray out of the options of blue, cream, gray, purple, or turquoise.
This neutral staple type of bracelet features a magnetic sterling silver clasp in a brushed finish. This is the perfect casual piece to give you a polished and effortless look, in my opinion!
Vega Feather Wrap Ring
Eeek!! I couldn’t wait to open the velvet box and was super excited to find the FIRST EVER RING created by Wristicuffs! This ring did not disappoint. It’s a feather wrap, that is both substantial yet comfortable on my finger. Because of the design, you can gently bend this beauty to have it fit your finger perfectly. This beauty is enough to steal the spotlight without seeming as if you’re trying too hard. I think that this ring and a pair of silver stud earrings would be the perfect casual, chic, “not-trying-to-hard” look this summer with literally almost any outfit!
Canterbury Ear Threads – Estimated Value $54.99 (based on a similar item here)
These thread earrings are around 5″ long (so they dangle around 2.5″) and are again sterling silver. The insert explains that they are inspired by spring showers – how clever! Again, they are high-quality pieces, lightweight and comfortable.
My box was missing these additional inserts, but subscribers were supposed to get a few cards explaining an important change to the thank you gift that My Meraki Box includes every month. The images above display what these inserts look like. First, there is a thank you card explaining what I personally think is a very cool change! It is awesome that they always send a thank you. In past reviews, you can see that sometimes it was edible, sometimes a different type of accessory, and sometimes (my very favorite times!) it was another Wristicuffs piece!
From My Meraki Box:
We are making some changes with My Meraki Box and we wanted to make sure that our subscribers were the first t know! Starting this month, we will be changing our thank you gift item. Moving forward, each month the thank you item will be a sterling silver stackable ring. Over time you will be able to mix and match these pieces to create your own personalized stack. You will find two stackable rings in your May box to start off your collection. We are excited to see what combinations you come up with in the future!
One last card was also included again referencing the rings.
Thank You Gift: Sterling Silver Stacking Rings
These sweet little rings go beautifully together, and together they are about the width of my wedding band. One of the rings is in a twisted sterling silver finish, while the other has more of an oxidized floral sterling silver pattern. They comfortably fit my size 7 ring finger.
Verdict: Another lovely box full of wearable, high-quality sterling silver jewelry that once again brought a surprise… we have never seen a ring from Wristicuffs and in this box alone we now have 3 – with a promise of more on the near horizon! The bracelet is a beautiful staple, the earrings are clever and fun, and the rings… I’m in love with them all!
Since these are all exclusive items, if I use average value – this box costs $59.99 and I received 5 pieces of exclusive Wristicuffs jewelry making each piece $12. Since I was able to find 2 of the items like the ones that I received in the shop, retailing at a combined $120.00 I think that clearly, the delivered value is there.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, this box ships on the first of every month.
Value Breakdown: At $59.99 for this box, you’re paying $12.00 per piece (including the thank you gift rings).
