Rocksbox – jewelry service for today’s short attention spans

rocksbox thoughts || alice / TYPENU

Took me long enough, but better late than never!  Continue reading for my complete Rocksbox thoughts – the good, the bad, and my wishlist.

Rocksbox – a subscription service for jewelry

But you knew that already.  Rocksbox is one of the oldest and original subscription services, and I’m happy that they’re still around amidst fierce competition from newcomers.  The idea is simple: pay a flat fee per month, and receive 3 pieces of jewelry at a time according to your wishlist and/or personal style.  You can wear it until you get sick of it and simply drop it in a nearby mailbox to get all new pieces.

The shipping and handling time in my experience did not take long; sometimes I would get my next box within the same week.  Shipping is of course free of charge!

If you liked a piece so much, you can keep it plus receive a discount off retail price.  In addition to having unlimited access to gorgeous jewelry, receiving the boxes themselves is like an unbirthday celebration – everything is scrumptiously wrapped up and a personalized card gets included.  Presentation matters, people!

The three pieces I received in this box are: earrings from Gorjana, a cuff from House of Harlow, and a necklace from Moon & Lola.  Given my personal minimal style, I’d say they got it pretty right.

The only complaint I’d have from this service is that I wish I can mix and match pieces from each box – occasionally I’d like one or two pieces in a box but hated the rest; it would be so nice to be able to send that disliked piece back and get something better.  When this happens I feel like you’re just not getting your money’s worth.

Overall I loved how fun the Rocksbox service was; I’m not even a fan of surprises (so ocd) but I’m making an exception for this.  Each time I find a Rocksbox package in my mailbox my day is just instantly better and I’d skip upstairs and open it up to see what goodies I got.  For the most part I liked what I received, but there were a few pieces that missed the mark.  This is definitely a service worth trying out if you haven’t already.

With my code TYPENUXOXO you can get a month free; what are you waiting for?  Have you tried Rocksbox?  Sound off below!

  • Ive tried it before and it is super fun. My only problem is that I am allergic to non precious materials (my neck and ears swell up in hives for days) so as much as I love cute jewels and things, I can only look from the sideline. Your picks are cute!

    You nailed it! I’m not really a fan of subscription services. I want to be able to choose the jewelry/clothing I use, but to pay for something and not keep it them all, it’s ridiculous! It is feeding on the need to follow trends really…

  • Thank you Melis!

  • There were definitely some misses for me as well; since you only get 3 and have to wait for shipping it does feel like a wasted opportunity!

  • Thanks Christina! Haha it’s funny but true!

  • That was totally unintentional lol!

  • I’ve heard of this service before and it sounds like a fab way of introducing you to new jewellery each month, without the hefty price tags! The bracelet is so chic and I love how your mani matches the pretty gift packaging’s ribbon 🙂

  • You can help them along by always making sure you have a variety of things in your “wishlist” that you do like, that will ensure they send you the right stuff. But even sometimes I feel like they go off the rails haha!

  • Right?? I’d be willing to even pay more for that!

  • I’m a Rocksbox fan, too- but it would be nice if you could immediately send back items from a set you didn’t love while still continuing to test drive items you did; that would be awesome!

  • Alice, thanks so much for your honest review! I’ve heard a lot about these jewelry subscription services, but never actually went for it for some reason. I have a very minimalistic approach when it comes to accessories just like you, so I am pretty sure I won’t like every piece I got. I really love the ones you are wearing in this post though! Hope you are having a great week:)
