Monthly Xio Bag June 2019 Review
The theme of this month’s box is “Tides of Teal,” featuring five fashionable pieces with teal accents.
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.
High Tide - Retail Value $35
Low Tide - Retail Value $35
XIO sent two bangles this month; High Tide has a teal gem, and Low Tide is the bangle with a CZ gem. This thin metal is pliable enough to fit nearly any sized wrist, but I was disappointed in the quality of these two pieces. They just seem so fragile, and counting these two as two items and not a pair doesn’t seem right; I wore High Tide by itself, and it looked lost on my wrist. If I got one of these caught on something, it would easily just stretch and possibly break in half with barely any effort. Basically, I think $35 for a single bangle is ludicrous.
Tide & Twisted Ring - Retail Value $45
On the other hand, the quality of Tide & Twisted Ring does not compare. It, too, is adjustable, but it is heavy and only bends when you want it to, unlike the bangles. This cage-style ring can be worn as a midi, but also fits for normal wear. I’m not sure which style I prefer! With 8 teal stones surrounded by CZ gems, this ring is very eye-catching. The pops of teal definitely make this ring unique, and I’m looking forward to wearing it out this summer.
I am wearing both rings and bangle sets from each metal option this month.
Teal Me More Necklace - Retail Value $55
Being a total sucker for XIO’s necklaces, it is no surprise that I’ve fallen for another! When I saw the spoilers of this month’s box, I didn’t think I’d like this necklace as much as I do. The teal bars really pop in the sunlight, and I really like how they dangle just a little bit. It is simple and casual, yet beautiful! XIO provides a large 3-4 inch extender on each of their necklaces, so you can wear one as a choker or a bit longer for a layered look.
Beachin’ It Teal Studs - Retail Value $30
I love the boho feel of this set of posts! This minimalist style is so perfect for a day to day, beachy pop of color. I like positioning them at a tilted angle (as seen in photos below), which almost makes them look like they are about to take flight. They would also look great dressed up with a playful pair of hoops.
I love wearing my coordinating pieces from XIO!
The Verdict: Monthly XIO Bag is my monthly source of seasonal jewelry. I can’t pick between the silver and the gold options, as usual! Even though I wasn’t thrilled with the quality of the bangles this month, the casual necklace, earrings, and the edgy ring really made up for it! We received 5 accessories, which brings each piece down to $14--a great value! I love XIO’s jewelry, and I always look forward to seeing what next month’s box will bring.
