INK+ALLOY is a female-founded accessory brand with a mission to empower women through every day, modern pieces that make a bold statement. Their accessories are all designed in Atlanta, and made both in Atlanta and by artisans in India. Their seed bead earrings are hand-woven and their Insider Club sends one surprise pair of earrings per month for $25/month. That's 25-30% savings + free shipping!

Note: This subscription has updated its pricing to $25/month, with a saving of 25-30% off retail value and includes free shipping every month.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Opening The Box


INK+ALLOY subscribers can look forward to the same small white box, typically with their name written on it in bright pink ink on the front. Inside is a card introducing the earrings of the month and giving some styling inspo, and your jewelry. The earrings arrive in a small plastic bag for protection (not pictured), but other than that, all the packaging is recyclable.

Here's What's Inside

Info Card


I've been noticing as I run errands recently that stores in the US are gearing up for Fourth of July celebrations. I feel like my mother saying, "It seems so early!" But of course there is a lot of festivity to be had for this national holiday, so here INK+ALLOY is ensuring we have our 4th-ready accessories in order in time to style an outfit around them. On the back of the card is a styling suggestion and, as always, a 15% off code for subscribers to use on any purchases made outside your subscription.

Gloria Half Circles Beaded Fringe Earrings in Tomato Red — Retail Value $33


If I'm going to wear a patriotic pair of earrings, these are it. The versions of red, white, and blue used here are outside the norm for that color combo, which feels fresh. If you remove these earrings from the context of the 4th of July, though, they work for me for other reasons: I'm a complementary colors fanatic these days. There's something so zingy about a high-contrast outfit, and I'm always looking for opportunities to work them in. The dusty blue and neon red are doing what they do so well in this pair. The navy and cream beads ground them and add interest. YES to this pair!

It looks from the info card like other subscribers may have been sent other red, white, and/or blue earring shapes this month, rather than just this one pair in other colorways (all of which are pretty eye-catching, by the way). Do you subscribe to this box? Did you get a different pair?


I'm all-in on statement earrings, always have been, and I love how much space this pair takes up. They really spice up a monochrome or colorblock outfit, which is what I've been drawn to wearing most these days. If you like the concept of these earrings but aren't big on the colors or pattern, INK+ALLOY's Seed Bead Earrings section has dozens of varieties. It's amazing how much can be done with one earring concept.


I can't see myself having bought red, white, and blue earrings to celebrate the 4th of July if left to my own devices, but with this less-mainstream take on the color combo, I'm here for it. Plus, the complementary colors they feature are exactly what my eye is drawn to these days, so I'm really pumped to have some striking, unique, contrasting colors in my growing collection of beaded earrings!

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 June, you may have received one of an assortment of earring silhouettes—I got a pair of seed bead earrings that retail at $33. Subscribers who received the same pair as me will have saved $8, or 24%, by having them sent through the subscription. That's on the low end of average savings for this sub. This pair feels very worth it to me!

Other Things You Should Know

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, but you might receive a different style of red, white, and/or blue earrings. 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 am all sorts of things:

🌳 a writer who loves to convey feeling

🌲 a mother who wants to have just as much fun as my kids do

🌳 an outdoors-lover who's achieved #1000hoursoutside with my family

🌲 a low-maintenance self-carer

🌳 a general hungry person with an unstoppable sweet tooth

You'll find me collecting stationery and squirreling away stickers, riding bikes and swimming with my family, creating outfits in colors and 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 dancing to live music, roping everyone into a craft, being human and vulnerable, and celebrating the phenomenon of being alive.

...and doing it all with energy, delight, and jokes along the way.
