Hey every bunny! We're back with June's Rocksbox review and this month's shipment made me very hoppy. I feel like I've almost mastered this monthly subscription and I got a lot of wear out of everything. In fact, I wore many of these pieces with my Rent the Runway rentals for this week, so if you'd like more info on what I'm wearing, check out WIWTW: RTR on Friday morning.
Rocksbox is a jewelry styling and rental service. Members pay a flat rate every month to get unlimited access to the Rocksbox collection and the option to buy whatever they love at a discounted price. Each month, Rocksbox will curate sets of three pieces to send your way, including at least one piece from your ever-growing wishlist. Members can keep and wear the three pieces they receive for as long as they want, or they can switch out sets whenever they'd like. Rocksbox also offers a monthly credit so you can buy the pieces for less.
This is a review of the monthly plan for $21, which includes shipping to the US only.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)
Just like other subscription boxes, when I signed up for Rocksbox I had to set up a style profile that asked me questions like my metal preference, and which necklace, earring, bracelet, and ring styles I liked the most.
Let's check out this month's delivery!
What I Received
Slate Flynn Cuff - Retail Value $65, Member Price $55
About this item: Slate's Flynn Cuff is a wearable work of art. Crafted in 14K gold-plated brass; this chunky statement cuff features an artful wave design and it's finished in a high-polish shine. They say it's adjustable, but that was not the case for me. While Rocksbox doesn't tell you the width, I'd say it's around 2.5" wide.
Review: This time I unknowingly rented two items by Slate, and while I got a lot of wear out of this bracelet, my only complaint is it was a little too big for my wrist. It kept flipping and flopping and I was worried it would fall off and I'd lose it.
Slate Lana Drops - Retail Price $55, Member Price $46
About this item: Oversized but pretty lightweight, the Lana Drops are high shine, 14k gold plated brass earrings that are crafted in a flowing ribbon design. Featuring stainless steel backings, these earrings measure at 1.35" long.
Review: I love these earrings and I wore them everywhere. They're a little bulky, but lightweight and they're really unique and eye-catching. I didn't buy them because I'm trying to watch my money with this inflation and potential recession situation. YIKES.
Love AJ Ridged Pyramid Statement Necklace - Retail Value $195, Member Price $187
About this item: This ridged, textured statement necklace is crafted of 14k gold plated brass, and it features oversized gold beads and a 2" extender. The necklace is 17" long.
Review: Ah, this necklace. Beautiful, artful and eye-catching, but I'd expect better construction at this price point. While I loved the necklace and got a lot of wear out of it, the beads would not sit straight. They kept twisting and separating and it's quite heavy too. Great as a rental, but not as a purchase.
I'm getting the hang of this Rocksbox thing, but I wish they'd do a luxe designer version where you can rent all of the cool items Switch has right now. Rumor has it (from my friends who own a designer resale wholesale company) that Switch isn't in the best shape, so maybe Rocksbox will buy them out if they go under, and their stock too.
Although they're about to add designer handbags to their rental collection so maybe this Switch rumor isn't true after all.
Value Breakdown: Rocksbox membership costs $21 per month. At retail, the three pieces would cost me $315. With my Rocksbox discounts and the member pricing including the buy-all-three-items discount, the $21 of Shine Credit (the membership fee for the month, which goes towards your purchases), and the $10 buy-all-three discount, that price drops to $257.
