My First Rocksbox
Rocksbox is a brand spanking new membership-based jewelry styling service. I know, another membership site, but Rocksbox is a bit different from the rest. As many other membership sites, you start out by taking a style quiz (or style profile) and based on your selections, a stylist will handpick items for you that should fit your own personal style.
In your Rocksbox, you will receive designer jewelry – (3) items to be exact to trial for up to 60 days. So unfortunately, all of the goodies aren’t yours to keep permanently, but if you are interested in purchasing any items you received, you can with a 20% off member discount. What’s really cool is that if you don’t like your items, you don’t have to wait for the month to be over. Just send the items back in the enclosed padded envelope and you’ll be sent an alternative package. The amount of items for you to try each month is unlimited, and you will only be charged the one-time monthly fee of $19.
I wasn’t sure what to think about borrowing jewelry, but once I received my box I quickly changed my mind.
Here’s what I found in my little box:
- CC Skye Enamel Pave Dome Ring ($195 retail price)
- Viento Tooth Pave Necklace ($120 retail price)
- Gamine Sarah Dagger Charm Earrings ($59 retail price)
All of the items in my box are trendy and edgy – exactly the kind of things I like to wear. I actually love all three items and I was extremely excited to see a piece from CC Skye. I love CC Skye jewelry, but don’t own any. I’ve already worn the earrings and have worn the ring just about every day.
I’m already getting anxious to see what my next box will contain, but I can’t part with this gorgeous ring just yet.. maybe in a couple more weeks. haha!
Like I mentioned, I was a little hesitant of the idea of borrowing jewelry. But it’s really growing on me. It makes me think of some of the high end shops that celebrities and fashion bloggers might visit to rent a designer bag or some luxurious jewels for a red carpet event. I think it’s fun to be able to wear items that might not be in your price range.. as women we all love to feel glam! It’s also a great way to try new things and experiment with different styles without any commitment. I also think if you have a trendy or fashion related job, it’s a nice option to be able to wear and constantly try a variety of designer jewels without having to put out lots of cash.
I also thought that it might be a hassle to return the items, but it’s really not at all. The time period is long enough (60 days) where you don’t have to feel rushed, and your package comes with an already labeled padded envelope. All you have to do it drop it in a mailbox. Simple as that!
The only downside is that if you do fall in love with an item, it may (depending on the item) be expensive as the pieces are designer labels. Sharing your items on your social media sites will score you a $5 credit, so keep sharing and you’ll knock down the price of any item/s you want.
Wanna know another cool feature? Every month you are able to give one free month to a friend. So you and your BFF’s can rock some pretty cool jewelry.
