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 September 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 summer-inspired 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.
Kendra Scott Kacey Necklace (Member Price: $65)
I also received a Kendra Scott necklace in last month’s set, but this one is longer and has a much more dainty/feminine look. It features a rose quartz pendant on a 20-inch rhodium chain with a 3-inch extender. (Note: The description on their site states that it’s 16 inches, but it’s definitely longer than that so I went with 20.) I was able to slip this over my head without needing to unclasp/adjust anything, which is always a plus when you’re in a hurry to get ready. 😉
Wilde San Juan Bracelets in Yellow and Plum (Retail:
$45, Member Price: $38)
I actually hadn’t noticed these bracelets before, until they showed up when I previewed this month’s set. I almost wanted to swap them for something else, but decided to give them a try despite them not really being my style. While I wasn’t crazy about the gold (bronze?) accents, the white, yellow, and plum color scheme was actually quite nice. The bracelets have a slight stretch to them, which made me a little nervous that they would break when I slipped them on (thankfully they didn’t). I wish I knew exactly what they were made of, but the site didn’t provide that information.
Aster Ayana Ring in Silver and Labradorite (Retail:
$70, Member Price: $59)
While I chose this ring myself (swapped out another one in my set), I didn’t look at it closely enough to see that it was a faceted stone. — I prefer my stones to be smooth/rounded. 😉 Personal preference aside, I do think the “chunky”/bold look of this piece would be fun to accessorize with.
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 nice collection from Rocksbox! My favorite pieces were the Wilde bracelet trio and Aster labradorite ring. 🙂 — 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!
