Rocksbox is a subscription based “try before you buy” jewelry service that allows you to rent or buy pieces from a collection of trendy, yet affordable designers.
Upon signing up, you’ll be asked to complete a style quiz that helps Rocksbox determine the jewelry styles that best suit your needs. You can specify metal type, earring styles, ring size, stone preference, and more. You can also omit jewelry you don’t have a use for — I no longer have pierced ears, so I choose the “no earrings” option.
Disclosure: Box was received for review purposes. Post may contain affiliate/referral links.
At the end of the style quiz, you’ll have a chance to indicate additional preferences — such as designers you like/dislike, any metal allergies, upcoming events, etc. Rocksbox carries popular designers such as Kate Spade, Kendra Scott, Gorjana, Slate, Aster, Sophie Harper, and more.
Next, you can browse all of the available jewelry and add your favorites to your wishlist.
Rocksbox recommends adding at least 30 items to your wishlist so their stylists can start preparing your first box with those selections in mind. There is no limit to how many items you can add. You can also rank your top 10 favorite pieces, which are moved to the top of your wishlist and given preference over the others.
Once your stylist curates your first collection, you’ll receive an email to preview the set and swap out any pieces for others that better suit you. — I LOVE this option, as it ultimately gives you full control over the pieces you receive.
When you receive your box, you can keep and wear the pieces as long as you’d like. The $21/month membership fee allows you to “rent” an unlimited amount of sets in that single-month period. If you decide to purchase any of the pieces, you’ll be able to use the $21 fee right towards the cost of the item(s). Anything you choose to return is simply shipped back to Rocksbox in the pre-paid shipping envelope included with each box.
For a limited time, you can score a full month of Rocksbox for FREE (along with a $21 credit) when you use coupon code “2littlerosebudsxoxo” at checkout!
Okay, let’s check out my December 2020 Rocksbox!
My jewelry was shipped in a white padded envelope via First Class Mail. — Make sure you open it carefully, as you’ll need to use this same envelope to mail back any items you choose not to keep.
All of the pieces were tucked into a small lidded box that’s 100% recyclable & made in the USA.
The unboxing has begun!
All of the pieces in my new set were detailed on the sheet above (also shown in the screenshot from my account). It included photos and retail prices vs. member prices for each item, along with any discounts and credits I may have earned. (Members receive $25 in “forever credit” for each person they refer to Rocksbox. This credit can be used to purchase any item(s) in your set. All members always receive special member pricing that’s lower than retail.)
Each piece of jewelry was individually packaged in its own custom drawstring bag.
Kate Spade Pave Flex Cuff (Member Price: $68)
Could it be? — A cuff that doesn’t feel like it’s going to tear apart my flesh when I take it off? 😀 Not only is this bling-ed out piece from Kate Spade perfect for dressing up your look for the holidays, but it also STRETCHES to slip right around your wrist. Not like the typical “slightly bendable” stretching, but easy peasy puts-zero-pressure-on-your-skin stretching! Love it!
Sophie Harper Snowflake Pendant (Retail:
$55, Member Price: $46)
My not-so-great photos above don’t do this dainty snowflake pendant justice at all. — It’s SO much more sparkly/pretty in person. The adjustable chain has the pendant sitting right at my collarbone on its shortest setting, which is the perfect placement for such a delicate little charm.
Sophie Harper Orbit Ring (Retail:
$60, Member Price: $51)
Sometimes I’m not too crazy about a piece when I see it online, but have a total change of heart once I have a chance to actually try it on… This was one of those pieces. Initially I thought the ring looked too “dressy”, but after seeing it in person and wearing it a bit, it quickly grew on me. I love how it’s “bigger”, yet doesn’t feel too “chunky” if that makes sense. 😉
As mentioned earlier, Rocksbox provides a pre-paid shipping label to return any of the items that you don’t want to purchase. Once you’re finished trying them on/out, just place them right back in the box they came in and ship them back so they can start building your next set. Easy!
While I wasn’t initially excited about my December 2020 Rocksbox set, it definitely grew on me once I got to try out each of the pieces. — Which really, is the whole point of this subscription. Try before you buy! 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can score a full month of Rocksbox for FREE (along with a $21 credit) when you use coupon code “2littlerosebudsxoxo” at checkout!
