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). (You’ll also get an extra $10 discount if you decide to keep all 3 pieces!) 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 January 2023 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.
A peek inside!
All of the pieces in my new set were detailed on the label above (also shown in the screenshot from my account). It included the 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 “Heart of Hearts” Studs (Member Price: $98 — or $77 with the monthly $21 credit)
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided to choose a collection of “heart” themed pieces for this month’s box. First up were these cute studs from Kate Spade! The eye-catching earrings featured a large pale pink heart surrounded by a row of purple-y pink pave crystals. They’re made of 18k gold plating over brass and each heart measures roughly 3/4 – 1″ in diameter.
Kate Spade “Heart of Hearts” Pendant (Member Price: $98 — or $77 with the monthly $21 credit)
Of course I had to choose the matching necklace as well! Much like the studs above, the pendant also features the same large pale pink heart surrounded by a row of purple-y pink pave crystals. Its strung on a pretty gold chain that attaches to the pendant at two points (I’m sure there’s an actual term for this), so that it stays fixed in one place and won’t slide all over. — A feature I wish more necklaces had. It also has a chain extender with an adorably tiny gold heart at the end. Cute!!
Perry Street Jenny Statement Drops in Pink & Gold (Member Price: $60 — or $39 with the monthly $21 credit)
So many hearts! 🙂 These statement drop earrings by Perry Street are made of high polish 14k gold plating over brass and feature 4 sparkling pave hearts in both pink & red. They measure approximately 2.5 inches long and have stainless steel earring post backs. These are absolutely adorable and the perfect accessory for Valentine’s Day (and beyond)!
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!
I love how easy Rocksbox makes it to wear “seasonally specific” jewelry without the commitment to buy (unless I really want to, of course!). Since there’s no commitment to keep any of the pieces, you can simply wear them for a bit and send them back if you don’t absolutely love them. My favorite pieces this time were… well, all of them! 😀 — 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!
