Rocksbox Review Vol. 004!I received my fifth Rocksbox last week - So technically, this post should be volume five, but I didn't get a chance to share with you my fourth box before I returned it. I did share a photo on Instagram if you'd like to take a peek.
I'm a huge fashion jewelry and accessory junkie, so I can't help but get really excited each time I find a Rocksbox package on my doorstep.
What is Rocksbox? Rocksbox is a fashion jewelry based subscription service where members pay $19/month to rent an unlimited amount of designer jewelry. A stylist will handpick (3) pieces suited to your taste (based on your style survey & preferences) and will be promptly mailed to you. You can wear your items as often as you'd like up to 60 days. Whenever you feel like it, you can place the items in the prepaid enclosed padded mailer, and drop it in your nearest mailbox. In no time, a new package will be sent your way! There's no minimum amount of time you have to wait before sending your items back. If you decide that none of the items are for you, you can send the package back right away and you'll receive a new selection. If you love any of the items and can't give it up, you can purchase any of the items for 20% the retail price. To read more about the service, check out the FAQs.
My box contained:
- CC Skye Turnlock Cage Cuff in Black and Gold (retail price $175)
- Gamine Zara Rings in Mixed Metals (retail price $56)
- Urban Gem Pave Spike Earrings (retail price $42)
I'm pretty happy with my box. I requested CC Skye, and as always, Rocksbox delivers. I typically love all of CC Skye's designs, but the bracelet really isn't my style. I also wore the Gamine rings a couple of times, but they aren't really anything out of the ordinary. As for the earrings - I love them! Totally my style and I made sure to login to my Rocksbox account and purchased them right away! I didn't have to give much thought because they were actually the least expensive piece I received ($33.60 with the special member price).
I'd also like to mention how quickly I've been receiving my new box after I've sent a previous one back. Within three days, I'll receive a notification from Rocksbox that my package was received, and shortly after I'll receive another email with a tracking number for my new box. Within a couple of days, I'll receive my new box! From the moment I drop it in the mailbox, to the moment I've got a new package in my hands, it's usually around 6 days.
Here's a peek at the items I've kept so far from my current and previous boxes...
That gorgeous necklace was from my last box. It's by Loren Hope. Her jewelry is so amazing!
My overall opinion about Rocksbox has remained the same throughout my membership. I absolutely love it and the idea hasn't gotten old or boring. I love that I'm continuing to get introduced to new designers that I wouldn't have known otherwise. It might not be great for my wallet, but I love having the knowledge of different brands. Thanks to my first Rocksbox, I discovered CC Skye, which is now one of my top favorite designers! I've collected at least twenty CC Skye pieces since then (clearly I have issues).
The customer service is also fantastic. If you are looking for something specific, such as an item with a specific color or style for a special occasion or event, just let them know and they will try to send you something that fits that description of what you want. In my last box, I had a great pair of earrings that I was able to wear to a bridal shower and wedding.
As always, to rack up some purchase credits with the company, you can share photos of your Rocksbox jewels on Instagram and Twitter and tag Rockbox to receive a $5 credit. You can build up quite the tab to purchase items that you may want to keep!
