Rocksbox Jewelry Unboxing & Review – March 2015

rocksbox unboxing

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)

House of Harlow 1960 Aztec Bangle

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.

Gorjana Aida Cuff Ring

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!
