There are few comparisons to the excitement and anticipation I feel when I open my mailbox and see a package. That excitement increases when I see it is jewelry. Rockbox is a subscription service that I signed up for about 5 months ago and I get that same feeling every time a new arrival shows up. What pieces will I get? Where can I wear it? Who will I show it to?
What is Rocksbox all about?
Rocksbox is a subscription jewelry rental service. As a subscriber I signed up to receive 3 pieces of jewelry per shipment. These pieces were put together by a designer based on my specified style. When I first signed up, I entered in my preferences such as: gold, silver or a combination of both; classic, trendy, modern, etc. Then as I cascaded down through the selections and the website helped guide me through a menu of jewelry they have on hand. I picked and chose to my liking from a plethora of options. From these selections, I created a wish list. Then I rated the wish list according to what I wanted to see sooner rather than later.
One of the fun features Rocksbox offers is the ability to provide specific feedback regarding each piece you received as well as overall feedback on your experience. From the 8 or so boxes I have received thus far, I do feel like they try to narrow down the selections based on your comments. I also like the fact they do try to put together pieces that you can wear together. Their tailor made approach helps make them stand out in the sea of home delivery services. For any pieces you receive and really like, you have the option to buy at a discounted price. In addition, they give you credit dollars to go towards purchases within that month. All in all, a great deal for only $19 per month.
Most Recent Delivery
From the most recent box I received, I was pleasantly surprised to get a pair of silver ear climbers, a daring set of antique looking turquoise earrings and a choker necklace with an eye catching pendant. As with the rest of the jewelry I have received, these pieces were carefully wrapped. Each one had its own packaging within the larger box.
I really like all three pieces and could wear them interchangeably. Already I have received compliments on the pendant and love that it’s a striking statement piece, but can still be worn day to day. My only wish for this piece is for the chain was a bit longer to have more versatility. The ear climbers are really fun and can be worn anytime- dressed up or casual.
The earrings I really was looking forward to wearing had a bit of a snafu and one of the earrings broke before I could try them which was unfortunate. However, as soon as I reached out to Rocksbox, they offered a $10 credit and to replace the earrings right away which is a win in my book.
Awaiting the Next Box
The best thing about Rocksbox is when I tire of this look; I simply place the jewelry back into the packaging it came. Then I send it off anticipating the next shipment which arrives within a few days after they are notified of the return. Then the anticipation returns and the excitement starts all over again.
