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 July 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 receive special pricing that’s almost always lower than retail.)
Each piece of jewelry was individually packaged in its own custom drawstring bag.
Kate Spade Reef Treasure Coral Drop Earrings (Member Price: $198 — or $177 after monthly credit)
Okay, these have to be the absolute largest earrings I’ve ever received from Rocksbox. — They’re downright HUGE! Needless to say, they’ll certainly make a statement. 😉 The pale blue coral pieces are decked out with shimmering gemstones and pearls, while the large darker blue stone that holds them is accented with a tiny gold starfish on top. The reviews on these do mention that they’re very heavy, which I can confirm. Probably not the best choice for all day wear. 😉
Sophie Harper Crab and Whale Stud Set in Gold & CZ (Member Price: $55 — or $34 after monthly credit)
Now for something a LOT more dainty, but just as… sea life-inspired? — These teeny tiny studs measure only 7mm (crab) & 10mm (whale) long. Each set is made with 14k gold plating over brass and is accented with blue & red crystals. Too cute!!
Sophie Harper Enamel Flower Ring in White & Gold (Member Price: $50 — or $29 after monthly credit)
This cute enamel ring from Sophie Harper is an ideal accessory for summertime! It features a row of white enamel flowers with shiny gold details that wrap around the entire band. It’s made of high polish 14k gold plating over brass and can be worn alone or stacked with simple bands for an extra fun look.
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!
Yet another great collection of pretty pieces from Rocksbox! My favorites this time were the Sophie Harper Crab and Whale Stud Set and Sophie Harper Enamel Flower Ring. The Kate Spade Coral Earrings were fun to look at, but SO heavy to actually wear. — 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!
