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 May 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 Floral Frenzy Necklace in Multi (Member Price: $198 — or $177 after monthly credit)
I love the whimsical style of this gorgeous floral necklace by Kate Spade, but I would never be willing to spend $198 to own it. — But thanks to jewelry rental subscriptions like Rocksbox, I don’t have to! 😀 The Floral Frenzy necklace is an 18k gold plated collar necklace featuring an oversized row of various multi-colored enamel flowers. The gold chain measures roughly 17 inches with a 3 inch extender for the perfect fit.
Kendra Scott Jae Star Choker in Silver (Member Price: $68 — or $47 after monthly credit)
I’ve been a fan of star-themed jewelry since high school, so I had to wishlist this Jae Star Choker by Kendra Scott. The high polish silver choker features five small star-shaped charms — the larger three in plain silver with the two smaller stars featuring tiny pave accents. The celestial charms are strung on a 16-inch satellite chain with 2-inch extender. A cute necklace for everyday wear!
Perry Street Faye Statement Necklace (Member Price: $95 — or $74 after monthly credit)
The third and final necklace this month was more of a formal, “night out” piece than the previous two. Perry Street’s Faye Statement Necklace is a silver collar necklace with multiple rows — 11 to be exact — of interconnected, crystal-adorned chains. The piece is comprised of silver over brass and measures roughly 14 inches long with a 3 inch extender.
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 selection of designer jewelry from Rocksbox! The Kate Spade statement necklace reminded me how fun it is to be able to try out bold (more expensive!) looks with no obligation to purchase. 😉 My favorite pieces this time were said Kate Spade Floral Frenzy Necklace and the Perry Street Faye Statement Necklace. — 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!
