Favorite Cherished Heirloom Jewelry Subscription Box Review December 2019

My box arrived with a note regarding general advice when estimating sterling jewelry values as well as individual notes for each of my pieces. I think their estimated values are probably pretty accurate, especially since sterling isn’t as cheap as it used to be.

I am pretty thrilled you all wanted this reviewed, especially since I love vintage jewelry and pretty much have to wear sterling or gold these days due to metal sensitivities. Per reader request, we did order this box anonymously. Like all of you, I was so incredibly curious as to what might show up in such a unique subscription, so let’s get to it!

 

Vintage Hammered Ring with Leaves and Glass Cabochon

I was really excited to see such an odd and obviously handmade ring as the first item I pulled out of the box this month. The glass cab has some sort of iridescent finish to it and the thicker band is hammered and covered in leaves and vines. There are some identification marks but I can’t decipher them with 100% confidence. Possibly RC and Israel?? I was thinking this box was already off to a good start until I tried to slide it on my finger. I usually buy an 8 (though my finger is on the smaller side for that bracket) and this was WAY too small. I know sometimes for thicker bands people have to size up a little, but this was significantly smaller than any wiggle room I would justify for that purpose. What a bummer! The ring is so unique that I might have it sized, but I expect that could be pricy due to the width of the band and the hammered detail.

Womp, womp.

 

Ornate Cross Pendant

I would never classify myself as a cross-wearing type of gal, but I do love charms, especially old and intricate ones. There is something really delightful about the detail on this one, and the little twinkling set stones (marcasite?). I also like the darker antique finish very much. I decided to try adding it to my favorite Baby Lock and chain combo for an updated take on the cross necklace look.

I actually really like this and I feel like it works well, especially when paired with even more necklaces.

 

Sterling and CZ Bracelet

My last item this month really isn’t my style, but it is still a nice piece. Clearly marked .925 and made in Thailand, it has a nice clasp in a style that makes me feel like pieces are extra secure. Though it isn’t exactly my taste, I can’t deny that it looks nice stacked with other pieces I own and is well made, with pretty filigree sides for each segment.

Of course, I am still rocking the sterling bangle from my first box! The turquoise bracelet is another vintage find from a shop here locally.

Verdict: I didn’t love this month’s Favorite Cherished Heirloom Jewelry, though I think ups and downs are to be expected for a sub that is literally totally random and every piece is mostly one of a kind. Though I loved the ring, it didn’t fit, so that was a bummer. The cross has grown on me because it is such a mix-and-match friendly piece and it looks really nice with some of my other charms, though I never would have picked it out myself. I didn’t like the bracelet at all, but I am sure I can rehome it to someone for whom it might be a better match. Just like in my first review, I do feel the need to stress that this box is totally random. I have no idea of knowing what will show up, and the only customization I can offer is my ring size (which didn’t seem to help this month). If you are someone who is picky about jewelry, this isn’t the box for you. If you tend to really love vintage pieces and want more sterling silver in your jewelry box, give this one a try, but remember to keep your expectations realistic and your mind open! It is certainly something totally different than my other boxes.

To Wrap Up: 

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Every box is different and a total surprise. You can expect between 1-3 pieces each month. 

Value Breakdown: This box costs $35.00 a month + free shipping, which means that each of the 3 items in the box has an average cost of $11.67.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I don’t think the box is for me, but now I have a Baby Lock on the way!

    • TELL ME MORE. Did you go sterling, gold? Spill!!

      • Actually it’s the sterling heartlock with an 18″ silver chain that’s sold as a set. So technically not a baby lock exactly, but the sterling version of the baby lock was sold out. My plan is to stalk the site and buy one when it comes in stock, perhaps with a longer different chain, so I can mix and match and combine them. And maybe a bracelet chain for backup.

        See what you’ve done? lol

      • Heartlock is on my wishlist! I know you are going to love it. I totally look at charms differently now. Keep me updated! And follow them on instagram because Marla is hilarious and refreshingly real at all times.

  2. This is a weird thing to say but our hands look so much alike. We even wear the same size ring. This reminds me of Joey and his hands twin fro Friends.

    • Haha this gave me a good laugh! There surely are hand twins out there though, right?

  3. I subscribed for three months and was very disappointed. I did not receive anything remotely as nice as the MSA boxes. If you read reviews on Cratejoy and the comments under the previous a MSA reviews you will see that I was not alone in receiving disappointing jewelry. Also customer service was zero. Had sent several emails and completed their surveys with no response. I always try to look at the positive but just can’t find anything with this box.

  4. I love all of these. I would gladly give that bracelet a home!

  5. I bought that exact same bracelet on ebay about 10 years ago. It is so tarnished I never even wore it.

  6. I love both the ring and the bracelet; though I’d have the same problem with the ring’s fit. This box has me scanning for unique sterling finds, on my own!

    • I also subscribed for a three months and although I think I ended up with nicer items than some people, it just wasn’t worth it to me. I can spend $35 or less on eBay and get on one or two items I actually like, so I’ve been doing that every month since I canceled.

  7. I want that ring!!!

  8. Would the ring fit on your little finger? At least for me, my fingers are such different sizes that I can sometimes make a ring work on a different finger.

    • Too big for my pinkie 🙁 I am contemplating wearing it on a chain as a pendant. It really is very cool.

      • Did you try your thumb? I often find that a ring that fits my ring finger can at least get down one knuckle on my thumb.
        I totally get the frustration with a beautiful ring not fitting, I just got my disability after no income for years and a bunch of weight gain. So I purchased a few rings online without knowing my size and was horrified a 9 is now not that tight on my ring finger and won’t fit on middle or index anymore. But my thumb is still thinner than my middle and index fingers 🤷‍♀️

      • No go on the thumb! My knuckle is too big 🙁
