Good to Know: Luxor is now a quarterly box with July being the first box of this new schedule.
Starting in summer 2019, Luxor Box will become a Quarterly Box.
That’s right! Luxor Box will ship every 3 months, with a total of four exclusive luxury boxes each year, starting July 2019. Our boxes will ship in July, October, January, and April.
Now that March boxes have shipped, the next box will be the July box. We are aware that some recurring members have already been charged for a May box. We will apply this payment to your July box. After that, the recurring payments will be set up on a new subscription system so you will not get billed again until it’s time for your October box.

Luxor Premier July 2019 Review
This box came with a large card detailing all of the items included:
Looks like we are getting a ton of jewelry in here! Let’s take a peek.
Our first item is wrapped in a linen style pouch.
Pacific Princess 18kt Gold Plated Layered Shell Disc Necklace Set – Retail Value $50.00
I had mixed feelings about these necklaces when I first opened the pouch because it seemed like a TON of gold. I was pleased when I realized they were a pair I could layer or wear solo. I especially love the shorter one with its center mother of pearl shell disk. It would actually make a super cute choker, though I can’t get it tight enough. Maybe with a little modification? The longer necklace by itself is a great simple chain to give any look a little shine.
Here they are on, along with the gold hammered hoops coming up further along in the review!
bkr Water Bottle in Sheer Vacation Blue – Retail Value $38.00
I really could be much better about carrying a water bottle. I tend to drink a ton of carbonated water, which is likely why I haven’t made it a habit. Can a sparkling girl learn to love still again? This cute bottle makes a great case for it, with its stylish silicone sleeve and heavy glass bottle. Only time will tell!
RAEN Norie Sunglasses in Sand Dune – Retail Value $135.00
I recently received a pair of sunglasses from this brand in the Summer 2019 GQ Box and they are my favorite sunglasses. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to see another pair in a very different shape and color scheme! There is something really effortless about these and the oversized shape is perfect for hiding behind when I am avoiding the sun or makeup-free. The lenses are a pretty, slightly pink-tinted shade and I always enjoy tortoise frames.
I like the rather subtle cat-eye shape!
Our final items came in a plush grey pouch.
NEST Jewelry Hammered 22k Gold Plated Adjustable Ring – Retail Value $95.00
Though this ring was described as adjustable, no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t make it budge! I would guesstimate it would work best on a size 7 finger, and mine is an 8. The gold finish is so bright and shiny, and I love the hammered look!
Marne was kind enough to model it for us with her amazing little claws!
NEST Jewelry Turquoise Bracelet – Retail Value $75.00
I am always wary of dyed howlite and other faux turquoise beads, but I did the acetone test on this one and none of that pretty blue budged! Even if this were faux, it is really pretty and I would still wear it. The gold bead really pops against the bold turquoise and though it is on the thicker side, this bracelet is still totally layerable.
If I have one thought, it is that it could be a little looser. My wrist is around 6.5 inches.
NEST Jewelry Large Hammered 22k Gold Plated Hoop Earrings – Retail Value $95.00
These hoops are big! I measured them around 2.75 inches across. Though they are larger, they are featherlight and all the hammered texture catches the light beautifully. I appreciate the extra-large backers too.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $488 which is significantly over the $400 guaranteed value. Four of the six pieces were jewelry, which suits someone like me just fine, though if you aren’t a jewelry fan, this might have been a huge miss for you. Though I can’t imagine spending those NEST retail prices on each piece in a store, the quality was really good, and I appreciate the thoughtful elements added such as gold plating and the shell focal bead on the necklace set. I am already a big fan of RAEN sunglasses, so I am more than pleased to have a new pair. I also see the benefit of having such a cute water bottle around. Hopefully, I make using it a habit!
