Rocksbox Jewelry Subscription Box Review!

My favorite discovery from August!

Jewelry is my very favorite accessory; I love how it can completely change up your look, whether a layered necklace can make a plain jeans and tee outfit feel special, or the perfect simple earrings finish off a great dress. I have a lot of sentimental jewelry pieces that I wear daily (story behind my rings here), but I’ve been playing with more fun and trendy pieces lately.

When Rocksbox kindly reached out, it felt like the perfect opportunity! The subscription is such a great way to try out different styles and trends without having to commit. It’s $21 a month for three pieces of jewelry at a time. You can keep any piece you fall in love with and your credit will be applied to the purchase. Then you can get a new set and start again within the same month! If you’d like to try your first box for free, you can use code “jeansandgemsxoxo” at checkout!

As far as personalization, you can note which metals or colors you prefer as well as your ring size and other details. There are helpfully curated shops to browse too, like delicate styles or trending stones. I would definitely recommend making a wishlist; it takes just a few minutes and your Stylist will choose from here first. You can then preview your set and swap out pieces if you’d like. I thought my picks were great and simply swapped out a pair of earrings because I’ve been eyeing something similar to this star and moon style!

My Rocksbox package arrived only three days later! Opening the cute, tied box felt like unwrapping an exciting gift! Inside were three little pouches (each with bubble wrap to protect the jewelry), a care guide (so helpful and thoughtful!), info on prices and how to return my box, and an extra scratch off that turned out to be a $5 credit! I really appreciated the message my Stylist wrote for my box, with more details on each piece and tips for how to wear them.

The three items I received were a Dusk Deja Charm Necklace, Slate Lyra Earrings in Gunmetal, and a Dusk Story Slider Bracelet. I wore the earrings immediately and then again on the weekend – they jazzed up a basic work outfit and were perfect for a night out too. They also weren’t too heavy and felt comfortable all day. The necklace was a great everyday piece since it was so dainty. I liked the gold chain and four charms mixed with rhinestones and labradorite; it’s one of my favorite stones. I loved the slider on the bracelet since it was so easy to put on and added movement to the piece.

After a few wears, I knew my wardrobe wasn’t complete without the Lyra earrings! I was really debating on the necklace too, but I have a lot of dainty pieces and am looking forward to buying more of a layered style. It was so easy to purchase the earrings on the Rocksbox website and I applied the $21 credit from the monthly subscription cost. Then I rated all of my picks and sent the other two back in the original packaging.

I’ve already received three picks for my second set and it should be arriving early next week! I’m so impressed with Rocksbox and I’m definitely going to continue my subscription. It’s an awesome way to shake up my wardrobe and find pieces that I really love after experiencing them for a few days. I think this would make such a fun gift for someone or a wonderful treat for yourself.

The Rings I Wear Every Day

The story behind my favorite jewelry

These rings are my most important possessions. I wear them with every outfit on regular days and for all special occasions. So, since you may be seeing them regularly, I wanted to share why I’m always wearing them.

My mom gave me the blue star sapphire on the bottom. It’s really special because she purchased it herself when she was thirteen years old. Last year, my mom was telling her sister about it and it turned out my aunt actually had the ring! My mom had me try it on because blue is my favorite color. It fit perfectly on my right hand and I have worn it every day since. I love the two gold hearts around the setting – it’s like there’s one for each sister.

The high school ring was my grandma’s from 1942. People ask me about it all the time. My grandma passed away when I was a senior in high school; she was such a bright light in our family and I love wearing something of hers. I also liked the idea of a high school ring, but my school’s were not very pretty – this one is gorgeous and it’s also blue. I’ve worn this on my left hand for seven years.

Lastly, the heart ring is the one I’ve had the longest. My dad’s sister passed away about a week before my seventh birthday and it was a gift from her and another aunt. It was a little too big back then, so I didn’t start wearing it until I was older and now it’s always on my right hand. They had a little M engraved into it, which I love.

So these are my everyday rings – pretty little objects with meaningful stories attached to them. Do you have any sentimental jewelry or family heirlooms?
