Rocksbox Reveal – Vol. 1

I LOVE jewelry. Especially really unique pieces. They don’t have to be flashy or expensive, but a little off the wall is cool and nothing too chunky. I don’t like the feel of heavy things on my body. Also, I love natural stones, like rose quartz or moonstone, particularly paired with gold or silver.

You see what I just did there? I basically gave you my style profile on Rocksbox. It’s really that easy and now you just sit back and wait for a cute little package to arrive with three items that you can rent for as long as you want and then return for another set or buy if you can’t bear to part with one.

To rent the set, it’s $21 a month and you can keep it for as long as you want. Keep in mind, that you will be charged each month regardless if you return them right away or not. You have to return all three pieces together in order to have another set sent out to you, but you can refresh your set as many times as you want and it will still just be $21/month.

If you decide to purchase a piece, the monthly credit will be applied to that purchase and if you ever decide to buy all three pieces, you get an additional $10 discount applied to the total. Now mind you, these pieces are not exactly cheap. The average price is between $40-$100/piece (from my experience), so $21 -$31 off isn’t exactly a steal, but this is where the renting part comes in handy. Let’s say you like something, but not enough to shell out $100, you can still wear it to that important meeting or that wedding and then return it.

Trust me, if you are anything like me. You will want to refresh your set more often than you think.

Also, you do get to browse the site and make a Wishlist of pieces that you like. If available, your stylist will send a piece (or more, but up to 3) to you in your box. If there is a special occasion or outfit you would like assistance with, just leave your stylist comments and they will try to help you coordinate jewelry for that event.

Ok, enough talking! Since this is my first Rocksbox post, I felt compelled to give a brief introduction on how it works, but if you want more info, head on over to their FAQ and read up on anything I may have missed.

So what did I get in my latest box? I’m so glad you asked!

To begin with, I got the beautiful Aster Aloe Necklace in Rutilated Quartz ($46) which I highlighted in the first pic above. I love how the stone looks hazy and is cut into a neat shark tooth shape. It’s a beautiful delicate piece, however, the 15 inch chain was a little short for my taste. I prefer a style like this to hang a bit longer down my chest and this fell right between my collarbones.

However, the second necklace I got was just perfect! The Valencia Necklace Rudiment ($68) is an Evil Eye inspired design with a delicate gold chain. It has “sapphire” and crystal accents and is made to hang a little higher to your neck. It looks gorgeous with collared shirts and regular tees and I’ve already worn this on various occasions and have received so many compliments. I actually did end up purchasing this piece as it was just too unique and eye catching (pun intended) to return.

Excuse the close up pic. Pic taken from iPhone and it was just not working out for me.

The last piece, which I also decided to keep because I’m such a sucker, are the Octavia Ear Jackets ($55) also from Rudiment, and are what I like to call a basic with a twist. The stud is a genuine opal stone with a line of crystals that hug the curve of your earlobe. I think this is something that you can either dress up or down and will look good with anything. I was in desperate need of a set of earrings that I could wear for work meetings and actually look like I was trying and I think that these fit the bill.

For the record, this post is totally NOT sponsored. Rockbox doesn’t know who the heck I am and probably never will, but when I like something, I will tell you all about it, and I really like this subscription box. Yes, it’s a little weird renting jewelry. Small delicate things have a tendency to break and get lost and you do run a risk of having to purchase something if that happens, but small wear and tear is actually covered with your monthly fee, so if you are someone who takes good care of their pieces, then this might be something up your alley.

If you liked this post and decide to check out Rocksbox, feel free to use my referral code MARITZABFF39. This is a referral code that they give to ALL their customers and if you decide to use it, then I get $25 towards a future purchase.

Also, let me know if you like these type of unboxings or reveals by liking this post. On days when I am having a hard time figuring out what to write, I go through all my posts and see what you guys gave a big thumbs up to and try to give you all some more of that type of material.

Till next time, my friends!
