My Rocksbox redux: March 2015

Rocksbox March15 1

If you’ve read my blog for a while, then you might remember the time I tried out Rocksbox. I wasn’t overwhelmed by the service and ended up canceling my subscription after my trial period ended, but when the company reached out recently to see if I’d like to give it another shot, I decided to go for it. After all, practice makes perfect, so a few months’ worth of style profiling should make my boxes better this time around. Plus, I’ve had a serious case of the “wanna-buys” lately–probably because of the seasonal change–so this is a good way to play with some new jewelry without committing to a piece I might not want to wear for very long.

Here’s how it works: After signing up and completing your style profile via the Rocksbox website, a stylist puts together a set of jewelry and ships it out to you. I’ve found that the shipping is incredibly speedy–I got my box (and my return box was processed) in a matter of mere days. You can keep the pieces as long as you like, and if you like anything in particular, you can purchase it at a discounted member price, plus you get $10 each month in “Shine Spend” to put towards a purchase. When you’re ready to send back your set, simply reuse the package it arrived in (a prepaid label is in your box) and drop it in the mail; you’ll get a new set within days, and you can refresh your set an unlimited number of times in a month. The monthly charge is $19 and you can cancel at any time.

Now, let’s look at my box…the first item is the Gorjana Taner Ear Climbers earring set ($40, $32 for insiders). In all honesty these earrings were just too plain for me; I like very bold earrings!

The second item is this Slate Marble Triangle Necklace ($50, $40 for insiders). I’ve been toying with buying a similar necklace and appreciated getting to try the trend with some pieces in my closet before committing. I ended up deciding it wasn’t for me, but it was fun to try!

Finally, I have a House of Harlow 1960 Symbols and Signs Bangle in Gold ($68, $54 for insiders). Of all my pieces, this was the one that most tempted me to buy it–anything boho is good by me–but I sent it back because I’m trying to control my cash flow right now and I already splurged on books and a yoga class this month.

So there’s my box! I was much happier with this box than previous ones, and I’m super-pleased with the speedy shipping. (If there’s one thing I hate, it’s waiting!) I already snuck a peek at my next box online and I can’t wait for it to arrive next week–I have a feeling I’m going to love everything in it!

Don’t forget to sign up for your own free month of Rocksbox! And pop back in next week to see my next set of gems…

    You have the most interesting services in the US, I couldn’t imagine anything like that here!

    I would have to say that my concern is about the environmental impact it seems like a lot of shipping products back and forth.

      You know, I hadn’t really thought about that, but it is a lot of shipping…on the bright side at least all of the packaging is reused, so there’s no waste of shipping envelopes and such. I have been trying to cut back on online shopping because of the ecological side of it. If I can find something local that’s always preferable!
