Your Bijoux Box is a monthly jewelry subscription for $49.99. Each box contains 3 pieces of custom-designed jewelry, exclusive to the box, plus a bonus item, with a total retail value of $200.

Your Bijoux Box gives you a choice of your favorite metal. This month’s designs are plated in 18k gold; though there is a silver-only option. Besides metal preference, you can also select whether or not you want earrings, and put in your ring size.

The best part is that Shana, the owner, is very accommodating. I usually choose not to receive earrings because I don't have pierced ears; but some months I want to gift my set to my mother or sisters (who do have pierced ears). I simply message Shana through Facebook messenger (email also works) and ask for earrings that month. It’s never been a problem for her to make that happen!

This box was sent to us free of charge for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

First Impressions


January's theme is "Unlock Your Sparkle” and it lives up to its sparkly name.

I’m happy to report that each piece of jewelry arrives in its own plastic bag. This prevents them from tangling in transit. They arrived in a Tiffany blue box that matches the pouches that the jewelry always comes in.

Bring On The Bling!

Unlock Your Sparkle Necklace


I love this darling, dainty necklace because it’s fun and versatile. The engraving on the back of the lock reminds us to “Unlock Your Future.” That’s a lovely sentiment to keep in mind; a perfect mantra for the New Year!

Also, though there’s not a heart in sight, it manages a subtle nod to Valentine’s Day. A lock and key are symbols often associated with love, but, like the best jewelry, it can be worn year round.

The pendant and charms are well made and the chain is sturdy and super shiny; plus the little stoppers at the end of it have sparkling CZs! There is a slider clasp on the back of the necklace to adjust it to the perfect fit. The slider makes putting on this jewelry quick, easy and painless!

Unlock Your Sparkle Charm Bracelet


This bracelet is simple and sweet. It also manages to capture two very trendy things in one design. Paperclip chain is incredibly popular right now, as is charm jewelry. Like the charms on the necklace, the Cubic Zirconia on the key charm is reminiscent of an opal. I love opals so I’m always happy to see them in jewelry, but I’m relieved that these are CZs rather than actual opals. Regular opals are soft and porous so they chip very easily. Unlike opals, CZs are very hard and are more likely to withstand the punishment that bracelets are likely to take.

Like the necklace, the bracelet closes with a slider clasp that is adorned with two sparkly CZs on the end. I’d also like to add that the bracelet is a great length. I have 7.5 inch wrists and large hands but I can still slip it over them.

Unlock Your Sparkle Paperclip Earrings


I’m in love with how simple, yet fun, these earrings are! They’re perfect for ladies who aren’t comfortable with large or heavy earrings but who still want something eye-catching and fun. The design is super versatile too; wear it with the set for a polished look, or alone for a relaxed vibe. Plus they’re incredibly lightweight and dance as you move your head.


Night Cream - Handmade by Shana


I’ve loved all of Shana’s self-care items and I’m amazed at her talent. Not only does she design every piece of jewelry in each box, she hand-makes each month’s bonus item. And she does both of those difficult tasks very well! As someone who loves crafting and has tried making lip balm, soap, cuticle oil and body scrubs, I can tell you that it’s not nearly as simple as it sounds. In fact, it’s difficult, messy and often ends up being more expensive to make that item than it is just to buy it!

The bonus self-care item this month is a handmade nighttime facial moisturizer. It’s thick, super hydrating and good news for those bothered by scents: there isn’t one! Winter winds can dry your skin, so a thick moisturizer is a great idea for this time of the year. As a bonus, I noticed that after applying to my face and rubbing the extra into my hands, it made my cuticles look and feel moisturized as well.


The Verdict


This is my sixth year receiving Your Bijoux Box, yet every month I’m still excited to open the little blue bag. The “Unlock Your Sparkle” collection is a fun way to wear multiple trends in one.

For me, Your Bijoux Box jewelry is a step above most jewelry subscriptions, because the jewelry is dipped in sterling silver or 18k gold. Also, unlike most jewelry boxes, the stones used aren’t cheap pieces of glass; they’re genuine CZs that sparkle like crazy. CZ, or Cubic Zirconia, is a manmade stone that is harder than most gemstones (meaning less likely to chip or break) and is close to the shininess of a diamond. Thanks, Wikipedia!

As for the stated retail value of $200, I feel it is more than fair. Cubic Zirconias, sterling silver or 18k gold plate and the fact that you receive gorgeous, high quality jewelry that is exclusively found in this box, is definitely worth at least that much.

All of these pieces of jewelry were designed by Shana, the owner of Your Bijoux Box. It’s obvious she puts a lot of care into every collection. Each set isn’t just beautiful, it’s well curated. All the boxes have themes that are timely, fit the season and are on trend.

My mom modeled the set for me this month and we both marveled at how sparkly each of the pieces looked and how well-made they were.

To Wrap Up

Can you still get this box if you sign up today?

No, your first box will be the February box. However, if this January “Unlock Your Sparkle” collection hasn’t sold out, you can contact Shana and let her know that you want it to be your first box.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $49.99 which means each of the 3 jewelry items cost $16.66 (not counting the handmade face cream). That’s an amazing value for one of a kind, higher end jewelry that’s so trendy.
