What Is A Rocksbox?
I'm obsessed with subscription boxes! I recently tried a new one, Rocksbox, which is a jewelry sampler that sends you 3 hand-picked pieces per box based on your individual style preferences. You can keep the pieces for as long as you want and then return them when you're ready to receive your next box. If you fall in love with something and want to keep it, you can purchase it at a discounted price.
While most subscription boxes limit you to one box per month, you can send back your Rocksbox as often as you like to receive a new selection of jewelry. For someone who likes to constantly have new jewelry to create new looks, this is a box that is well worth the money. You can create the illusion of having a gigantic and varied jewelry collection for only $19/mo... way cheaper than constantly buying new jewelry.
Let's take a closer look at how it works. After signing up and filling out your preferences, your first box will arrive on your doorstep in a reusable envelope. This is the same envelope you will use to return your jewelry pieces. A pre-paid shipping label is included in the package.
I'm a sucker for nice packaging, and this box did not disappoint with its muted colors and pretty bow closure.
Inside, the first thing you see are several cards.
The cards include information about how the program works. I appreciated that the information is personalized with your first name, that's always a nice touch.
There's information about the specific pieces included in your box as well as the prices if you decide that there's a piece you want to keep forever and ever and ever.
Now we're getting to the exciting part... the jewelry!
The first piece that my stylist chose for me were these silver geometric circle studs by Slate.
I own quite a few silver earrings in many different styles, especially hoops and geometrics. These earrings are something different from anything I currently own and are ones that I would readily wear as an everyday piece.
Why are little fuzzy bags so exciting? Because the likelihood of them containing something shiny and sparkly is high.
When filling out my preferences, I added these House of Harlow 1960 Cerro Torre Ear Jackets to my wishlist because they are different than what I would normally choose for myself and I thought it would be fun to try a new look.
While I own a couple pairs of my own ear jackets and enjoy them, this particular style didn't quite work for me, but it was fun getting to try them knowing that I could just send them right back and get a different piece sent to me instead.
The third and final piece in my box was this Kendra Scott Bridgete Necklace. This was another experiment for me as I don't typically buy super small or dainty necklaces.
When I first saw this necklace in the box my first impression of it was kind of "meh," but once I wore it around for a day I totally fell in love with it. It's understated and the pretty agate stone occasionally catches the light and throws off a flash of sparkle.
So, do I think it's worth it? The coolest thing about Rocksbox is the ability to keep the jewelry for as long or as short as you want. If there's nothing in your box you want to wear, just put it right back into the envelope and ship it back to receive a new one - there's no limit. For that reason, I think this subscription box is worth the $19/mo price tag. You can keep yourself in constant rotation of new and different jewelry for a fraction of what it would cost to actually own a collection of that size. Sneaky, huh?
I will say that, taking a peek at the purchase prices for many of the pieces, I don't see myself using this service as a means to actually buy new jewelry. My accessory budget just doesn't allow for that kind of thing. But the price is reasonable when you want to both branch out and try new looks and also receive jewelry that is in line with what you would regularly wear anyway.
