Opening The Box

 

It's a new year, but INK+ALLOY subscribers can still look forward to the same small white box with bright pink name customization written on the front of it! Who else is ready to kick off the new year with a fresh pair of beaded earrings?

Here's What's Inside

Info Card

 

INK+ALLOY is expert at sassy spins on staples, adding colorful beads and trendy patterns to familiar shapes and styles. On the back of their card, they always offer a 15% discount for additional purchases made outside the subscription.

Gold Black White Triple Disc Earrings — Retail Value $38

 

January's earrings are so much fun. Their stacked discs have black-and-white beading, and mine have metallic "gold" (more like bronze) centers. They're an awesome way to spice up an outfit without introducing too much extra color—a problem that maybe not everyone has, but I occasionally need to tone down the rainbow I'm wearing!

Subscribers are sent one of three Triple Disc colorways at random. The other variations have rust or peacock-blue centers. I personally love them all and feel you can't go wrong this month.

 

I popped these earrings right on with the outfit I was wearing that day and headed out the door to meet my family for brunch. I thought they went with a hoodie and beanie perfectly, but would absolutely wear them with something nicer—a sweater or a dress. I've had my eye on the checkerboard trend over the past couple of years but not been sure if I want to fully commit to it, and these earrings feel like a checkerboard-adjacent design that let me dip my toe. I'm having a blast styling them!

Verdict

Hello 2023, and hello to these black-and-white checkerboard earrings from the INK+ALLOY Insider Club! They welcomed us into the new year with such balance: contrasting colors that are bold without being overly bright, and a unique design that's as well-suited to super-casual outfits as it is to something spiffier. Fantastic start to the year!

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $25 per month + free shipping.

Value Breakdown: The INK+ALLOY Insider subscription costs $25 per month + free shipping. For January, I was sent a pair of beaded earrings that I cost $38 at full retail. That means I got a 34% discount. Amazing!

Other Things You Should Know

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, but you might receive a different colorway. INK+ALLOY functions on a rolling subscription model, so your order will ship 1-2 business days after you've placed it and then recur on that same day each month.

Do you think you'll stock up on ethically made jewelry with INK+ALLOY'S Insider subscription?

Hi there, I'm Christen! I've been writing with MSA since 2017. I am all sorts of things: a writer, a mother, an outdoors-lover, a low-maintenance self-carer, and general hungry person.

You'll find me collecting stationery and squirreling away stickers, riding bikes and swimming with my family, creating outfits in earth tones and flowy silhouettes that make me feel amazing, wearing big earrings, drinking beer and asking my husband to feed me harmonies to sing, taking my vitamins, living for live music, roping everyone into a craft, being human and vulnerable, and celebrating the phenomenon of being alive.

Love the blond highlights, Christen! Not sure if that’s new or not (I’ve been MIA for awhile), but they look fantastic on you.
