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 May 2021 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 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.
Kendra Scott Ari Heart Bracelet in Rhodium/Ivory (Member Price: $48)
Rocksbox carries a lot of designs by Kendra Scott, so if you’re a fan be prepared to add to your collection. The dainty bracelet above features a small ivory mother of pearl heart surrounded by a row of sparkling crystals. Its strung on a high polish silver over brass chain that can be adjusted up to 7.5 inches long.
Rudiment Chestnut Pendant in Silver (Retail:
$65, Member Price: $55)
Who needs a functional compass when you can have a blinged-out one instead? 😉 This fun pendant necklace is comprised of a roughly 1-inch “compass” charm adorned in crystal pave. It’s strung on a thin 23-inch silver over brass chain with a 3-inch extender.
Sophie Harper Etched Mama Ring in Silver (Retail:
$55, Member Price: $46)
As always, I’m a sucker for anything related to being a mom. 😉 This high polish, silver over brass ring features the word “MAMA” engraved on a simple band. While it fits perfectly and I’m a fan of the overall style, something about the engraving led to the ring having a lot of odd shadows leading it to look a bit distorted. Bummer!
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!
As sometimes happens, I’m still unsure whether or not I’m going to keep any of the pieces in my May 2021 Rocksbox set. Thankfully, they give you plenty of time to make that final decision. 😉 — 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!
