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!

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. I'm always tickled by the personalization!

Here's What's Inside

Info Card


Usually the front of the card showcases a little styling inspiration for the earrings of the month, but this times they've taking the route of providing a refreshing cocktail recipe in bold text. On the back is information about the charitable cause of the month, as well as care instructions.

Monica Double Striped Earrings in Desert — Retail Value $30 (on sale for $25.50)


The earrings of the month are these hand-beaded, dangling posts that take a double circle shape. I'm living for the blue, mustard, coral, and white color combo, and I love that they are backed with soft felt. The Monica Double Stripe earrings come in three color variations. You never want to see an item you received in a subscription listed for sale, but even still, the cost of these earrings exceed the cost of the box.


Given the colorful beads throughout these earrings, I was surprised that from afar, they look mostly white. But I do like the way they pop! I had seen them on the INK+ALLOY website before and envisioned them being larger and hanging lower than they do, but as they are, they're a little easier to wear for more occasions. I reach for earrings pretty much every day, however if I'm wearing something super-casual, going for a ridiculously large pair sometimes feels extreme.


These beaded earrings are a fun, easy pair to wear with everyday outfits. I love the color combo I received, and while I was surprised that from far away the white borders are really what shows up, I still like this pair and how visible they are.

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 July, we were sent one of three colorways of beaded dangly earrings. At full retail, they cost $30, but they're currently marked down to $25.50. That ranges from a 16% discount (from full price) to an almost 2% discount (from the sale price). I think we'd all prefer to think of it the 16% way! Typically the savings in this box is that much or higher.

Other Things You Should Know

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, but you might receive a different color combination. 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.
