Rocksbox Review

I will be the first to admit, I am a follower.  I am heavily influenced by others.  And I have been seeing other bloggers raving about Rocksbox - which is similar to Stitch Fix, but is more of a "rental" service and is all jewelry.  When one of the bloggers I follow had a code to get a month of Rocksbox for free, I decided to give it a try.  I'm not being paid for this review, but I thought I'd share my thoughts and show what I got, because it's fun to talk about jewelry right?

There was literally no wait time which was nice.  I signed up for my trial and similarly to Stitch Fix, you fill out a profile about you and your style.  You can also shop their online catalog and create a wish list of pieces you'd like your stylist to send you.  It's pretty simple and within a day of filling out my profile I received an email that my box was on the way.

It comes in this cute little box all tied up with a ribbon.  I think packaging can really make a difference with these kind of things!  Anyway, you are sent three items - in my case it was a necklace, a pair of earrings and a bracelet.  The stylist includes a note saying hello and why they chose the particular items for you.  Then they list each item, the retail price and the price for Rockbox members to purchase if they wish.

Inside the box each piece is tucked inside nice little bags to keep them safe.  They also include instructions on how to care for each piece as well.  So now onto the goods, here is what they sent me!

Trina Turk Hexagon Bib Necklace:
I love, love, LOVE the necklace they sent.  I'm a big fan of statement necklaces, I love the bib style necklaces and of course, it had to be in my favorite colors of coral and pink.  Sadly, this one is a little too expensive for me to buy, so I will be sending it back, but I had fun wearing it for a little while!

Perry Street Katy Earrings:
These are a little heavier than what I would normally choose for myself, but I actually really ended up liking them.  I'm on the fence about keeping them, they're a great color and they're a lot of fun and the price seems reasonable, so I might hold on to them.  Plus, Ollie's getting much less grabby at my earrings than when he was younger, so that's a perk too!

House of Harlow 1960 Aura Tennis Bracelet in Turquoise:
I wanted to love this, it's a fun color and has a really neat clasp on it, it's magnetic.  But first world problems, I have too tiny of a wrist for this one.  It just didn't work well at all.  So I didn't even wear it once and have no problem sending it back.

Overall this was a lot of fun.  The price per month is kind of similar to Stitch Fix again, $20.00 and then that gives you perks like discounts on any pieces you want to keep.  Otherwise if you send it back, it's just like renting it for a little while and that is kind of cool too.  I am not certain if I'll really keep going with this, I did try it because I could do it for free, but I'm not sure that I really want to pay to keep it going.  I could see it being really useful if you were someone who went out to a lot of events or maybe worked in a higher level job.  My jewelry needs are pretty simple though, so I think in the end I'll be sticking with things like Stella and Dot or even Charming Charlie.

Have you ever tried Rocksbox?
