mintMONGOOSE February 2021 Review

 

When you sign up there are a few customization options. You can choose your jewelry tone and whether to have earrings included or not. I first opted for Surprise Me! but after only receiving silver pieces, I changed my preference to gold and I said yes to earrings. One notable thing about the jewelry is that each piece comes with a lifetime warranty, too!

If ANYTHING, ever goes wrong with our pieces, we will replace them. Our pieces are designed to last for years with the proper care. We don’t short on quality, and as a result, we feel confident enough in our pieces to offer this lifetime warranty on our pieces – something you won’t find elsewhere.

 

The packaging was so cute with a wax seal on the envelope and some cute little tags on each wrapped piece of jewelry. The piece of candy was a nice little bonus! Although, I’ve been thinking, shouldn’t they include a mint?

 

There was also a thank you card enclosed.

 

This card describes our pieces this month. This subscription is a woman/mom-owned small business and each set has an inspiration behind it which they share on the back of this card. This month’s set is inspired by “beauty in the process” and they tie it into the lines of marble. I am so happy I switched to gold this month because I love the look of gold and marble!

 

Marble Bar Earrings

I just love the little bit of veining that we see in these bar earrings. I always think black and white marble looks so nice set against gold metal and these earrings are the perfect blend. This bar design is classy and simple and I think they are just the right length to make a great accent with any hairstyle whether it’s up or down.

 

These earrings are totally my style. Love them!

 

Marble Bar Necklace

Our necklace is very similar to our earrings, but this time the marble bar is not raised and it lays horizontally. As much as I love the earrings, I love this necklace even more. I think the flat face of the marble bar makes the veining stand out even more and the gold chain is such a pretty compliment to the neutral colors. This necklace goes as short as just over 16 inches up to about 20.75 inches with three other settings in between ensuring the perfect length for any neckline.

 

At the smallest setting it is like a choker on me but swipe to see it at the longer setting. I think I like it somewhere in the middle, but I love the versatility of the length!

Here you can see the earrings and the necklace together. I love that they match, but the different directions of the bar make them more unique than most sets.

 

Golden Infinity Ring

I was slightly unimpressed when I first saw this ring, I think because it didn’t seem to tie in as nicely with the other pieces, but after wearing it for a while, I actually really love it! The shape reminds me of an infinity symbol or a helix and I love the way the gold weaves in and out. This is actually an adjustable ring (slightly), but the open area is so slight meaning it doesn’t catch as other adjustable rings often do. The metal is nice and strong and it’s just a really pretty ring on.

 

It actually fits on my middle finger best and if you swipe you can see there is just a bit of a gap at the opening so it almost looks like a closed ring. It has a super low profile and I’ve actually since moved it to my right hand and I love the way it looks with no other rings on my hand. It’s simple and classy!

The Verdict: I am so glad that I was able to switch my metal to gold just in time for this month’s MintMOONGOOSE collection! I am so in love with marble and gold together and this collection suited my style perfectly with its simple and sophisticated pieces. While the ring didn’t seem like it was a perfect match for the other pieces, it is probably the one I will actually get the most use out of because it’s one of those gorgeous pieces that goes with anything! I’m super happy with this month’s jewelry and I think it’s an incredible value for just $16.99 + free shipping.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the March box. Also, your box may vary from mine depending on your preferences! From MintMOONGOOSE:

Your welcome box will ship within 48 hours and your first renewal will take place 14 days after your initial purchase to ensure you receive the upcoming set, unless you purchase a 3, 6, or 12-month paid by term subscription. Renewals will continue on the date of the month that your first renewal takes place. You can change your renewal date at any time through your customer portal.

Value Breakdown: At $16.99 (with free shipping) and 3 pieces in this box, that gives each piece an average cost of about $5.66.

Well done review! Would be interested in this subscription but I have a nickel allergy. What metal is the metal of this jewelry?

Brandi Dowell

Thanks, Tami! When I previously reached out to CS to find out more about the metals, this was the response I received;

“Our pieces are silver, gold, and rose-gold plated nickel-free pieces designed to last years. All of our pieces come with a lifetime warranty and if your skin ever reacts (which has only happened to 3 customers in the 4 years we have been in business) we will give you a full refund as our CEO, Helena, believes that you shouldn’t have to pay for pieces you can’t enjoy.”

They pride themselves on being irritation-free, so hopefully, this would be a good option for you! 🙂

Boxy Fox

Jewelrysnacks! Does megan know about this?

Snow

Definitely should have been a mint! Lol

Lux

Hey MSA gang! Just another quick message to notify you guys that this is another sub whose price has changed just a bit. It is reflected in the text, but nearer the bottom of the page, in an area that has been more of a repeated template since this format started the old price still shows. Probably wanna update that! It is probably time to go through the info pages of most boxes – you know, when you can! I’m not trying to be bossy over here! Just wanting to be helpful/thoughtful so nobody gets snippy with you all! Thanks for all the insightful and frank info in your news & reviews, it’s been so instrumental in helping me make informed decisions about subs. 🌠

Brandi Dowell

Thanks so much for the extra set of eyes, Lux! It is much appreciated! And thank you for reporting it so thoughtfully! ❤️ I’ll get that updated ASAP! ☺️
