Switch Designer Jewelry Rental Review + 50% Off Coupon – May 2019
Switch is a jewelry rental service that lets you try out designer jewelry without the commitment. You pick your favorite pieces and try them out for as long as you want with a relatively small monthly fee. This is a review of the 3 pieces at a time plan. Switch also offers the option to purchase jewelry pieces at a discounted member price. For every month that you’re a member, you get a $10 credit that you can use towards the purchase of a piece of jewelry at the special member price.
Switch offers free Priority shipping via USPS (1-3 day expected arrival). Each package comes with a prepaid USPS return label, so you can leave your return for your mail carrier or drop it off at the post office if you’re the nervous type. Shipping is free both ways, and they just ask that you package it just as you received it to return to them. It’s important to save the mailer and packaging for your return.
This month, all of my items were inside a large black cloth bag. This is the first month that I’ve seen this bag, in the past the pieces were all contained in a sturdy black box. Within the pouch, each piece of jewelry is contained in a sleek little black pouch, this is perfect for keeping your borrowed jewelry scratch-free and in pristine condition!

Switch Subscription Box May 2019 Review
A set of cards is included in each shipment. These cards explain how you should take care of your jewelry, instructions on what to do when it’s time to switch, and a variety of other information relating to this subscription.
CELINE Circle Cage Plate Cuff – Retail Value $620, Member Price $575
This cuff is from the Celine Phoebe Philo collection. It is a silver-tone cage cuff featuring a huge enamel navy blue disk. It slips on and is easy to adjust to fit your wrist perfectly. The inside circumference is 6”, and the total width of the bracelet is 3”, making this a statement piece.
Do Not Disturb Toulouse Tennis Bracelet (Size M) – Retail Value $1,595, Member Price $1,275
I love this rose gold and white topaz tennis bracelet! It is so pretty and pulls the light beautifully. It is an everyday type of piece, that I would truly never tire of waring. The bracelet measures 7″ in length and comfortably fits my wrist.
Do Not Disturb Bodrum Cherry Earrings – Retail Value $345, Member Price $275
Cherries are everything right now, and these garnet and 14k yellow gold studs are IT. They’re the perfect fun pop of color to pair with a work outfit, playful enough for a date night, and can be dressed up or down. Do I have to send these ones back?!
The Verdict: Do Not Disturb was not a brand that I was very familiar with in the past, but is one that I have learned to love through this subscription. I am pleased with the pieces that I selected the month (duh, I selected them!) and their condition.
In this shipment, I tried out $2,560 of jewelry for $69 – which is about 2.7% of their retail value and a great deal if it works for your budget and needs. It’s pricier than Rocksbox (which offers mid-range designer jewelry) but less than Rent the Runway (which offers designer jewelry, accessories, and clothes, too). To rent just one piece per month is $29, so you’re saving about $6 per piece to go for the larger subscription.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Pieces can get snatched up quickly, and the number of pieces they have per style varies. You may or may not see these pieces in their available inventory list – but you might just see something you like even more! This isn’t a “styled” subscription – meaning you can pick exactly what you want from the available list – it’s not selected for you based on an algorithm or your preferences.
Value Breakdown: The member price for all 3 of these pieces is $2,125 in total. At retail, they’d cost $2,560. Members get $10.00 to put towards a piece, so that’s $2,115 to buy everything, which is around a 17% discount.
