Collections by Joya August 2019 Review
Collections by Joya includes a card in each month’s box featuring a model style with several items from their collection. This month they gave major bracelet stacking inspo. I see a mix of familiar and new-to-me pieces on the model’s arm. Truly, I feel like every piece that Joya sells could go well worn with each other.
On the back is a list of ways you can shop Joya—as a subscriber, online, hosting a trunk show, or collaborating by buying wholesale. It’s set up like a postcard so you can spread the word!
Most months, the jewelry comes inside a canvas pouch. I’ve built up a serious collection of these guys, but they’re awesome for gift-giving and to pack jewelry for travel.
Inside my pouch this month are three items: a pair of stud earrings and two necklaces! I didn’t recognize any of them so I figured that must mean the fall collection has come out. When I went online to find these pieces, I learned I had guessed right! There’s so much beautiful new stuff in store.
Sandra Studs – Labradorite — Retail Value $49.95
Those of you who have been reading my Joya reviews for awhile have witnessed my relationship with labradorite unfold, haha. I went from not much caring for it to appreciating it, to now thinking of it as about the most versatile stone there is out there! The subtle, natural glow of these labradorite stones paired with the tasteful shape they take makes for a really lovely, sophisticated accessory. Admittedly, I’m still most drawn to bolder hues in the stones I wear, but I’m quite happy with this pair.
They hang from the lobe just a little bit. Here’s a preview of one of the necklaces, too!
Carole Necklace — Retail Value $88.95
What a unique take on a bold chain-link necklace! I’m fascinated by the intermittent clusters—they offer a very textured appearance. The way the hammering on each loop shines makes it almost look like a silver-gold combo piece, though upon closer inspection, it’s simply gold.
I tried it on doubled up first, then realized I would need someone else to take my picture of it worn long. I’m exposing my having worn the same-color shirt two days in a row! I prefer it worn at its longer length, how about you?
Butterfly Medallion Necklace — Estimated Value $49.95
Various versions of medallion necklaces appear in the fall collection. Here’s another one that caught my eye. I’ve always had a fondness for medallion pendants and patterns. There’s something inherently historical-seeming about them, like they hold stories. Perhaps not so much in the case of this butterfly medallion, though it is quite pretty. I particularly like that it’s hanging from a fine, dotted chain.
Here I’m wearing it at its shortest setting. I really like the length!
Verdict: I like the variety of styles that showed up in my August Joya box. And, though each piece has something about it that caught my eye, none of them are total stand-outs to me. That’s similar to how I felt last month, but I’ve been subscribed to this box for long enough to know that something perfectly spot-on is coming for me soon!
This box costs $49.95, including free shipping. The earrings and two necklaces add up to $188.85. Such an incredible deal.
