I was very excited to see my new Rocksbox in the mail today, though I must confess that I took a peek on my ‘Rocksbox history’ page a few days back to see what was coming. 🙂 The girls over at Rocksbox have been doing a really great job at picking out pieces for me based on my jewelry preferences. This time, though I didn’t receive any jewelry items from my “wishlist” (I’m assuming all the items that Rocksbox puts up on their website and instagram are all in pretty high demand), I was very happy to see that they sent me not one, but two items that I had directly requested – a cuff by House of Harlow 1960, and a Gorjana ring!
So let’s get started with the unboxing and review!
My Rocksbox Unboxing
First, Rocksbox starts off with a friendly “Hi!”, and a little reminder about the monthly $10 credit that can be used if you decide to purchase any jewelry items from your boxes that month.
Inside was a little note from my Rocksbox stylist and a description of the box contents (plus the Rocksbox Insider prices, which are 20%+ off regular prices).
Let’s continue with the unwrapping! (I’m loving their newest packaging by the way – tissue paper and all).
My Rocksbox Review
After taking the jewelry out of their little pouches, I was pretty happy with the overall collection. Everything fell under the style of jewelry that I like – layered necklaces, delicate rings, and modern cuffs – and could be worn together. Here are all the items that were included, followed by my review of each piece:
- House of Harlow 1960 Aztec Bangle – Regular Price: $48, Insiders’ Price $38
- Gorjana Aida Cuff Ring – Regular price: $38, Insiders’ Price: $30
- Vanessa Mooney Layered Nuggets and Cylinder Necklace – Regular price: $98, Insiders’ Price: $78 (I wasn’t able to find this particular necklace on Vanessa Mooney’s site, but they have similar ones available here)
I liked the style of the House of Harlow 1960 Aztec Bangle bangle. It’s modern looking with leather, gold, and an abstract pattern. What I wasn’t crazy about was the fit – it was a little looser than some of the other cuffs/bangles by House of Harlow that I own. It’s possible that this bangle is supposed to be worn higher up on the arm (?), but I couldn’t quite make it work so I decided to return it.
The Aida Cuff Ring from Gorjana was really pretty and unique with it’s open cuff style and little cubic zirconias. I loved how delicate it is, and how it could be stacked with other rings.
On the other hand, considering that I tend to beat up my rings just through everyday use, I was a little concerned that the stones might fall out. Plus I found it to be just a tad too small and dainty on it’s own. I think these would look absolutely beautiful with three or four stacked all together though, or as an accent in a set.
And lastly was the Vanessa Mooney necklace. I liked the layered design, and the sturdy, high-quality feel of the necklace. Personally though, I’m not a big fan of wearing long necklaces (they tend to swing all over the place and get caught on things!), so I sent this one back with my Rocksbox.
Overall, I had fun experimenting with these three new jewelry pieces. I didn’t quite fall in love with anything in particular from my Rocksbox this time, but hey, there’s always the next one!
