And there is no waiting to be surprised when it arrives in my mailbox. As soon as I get the email that says "Your Rocksbox Set is on its way", I'm clicking on the link and signing in to my account so that I can see what my stylist has curated for me! Apparently, I have very little self-control.
So when my second Rocksbox arrived, I
Here's what I got:
Slate Beaded Double Strand Necklace $55 (Insiders' price $44)
This was my favorite piece in the box, and I ended up buying it! It's a double strand silver necklace with tiny silver beads that remind me a little of hematite. The beads are all loose on the chain, so they freely slide back and forth - love that! It also has an extender, which is a feature I think all necklaces should have, so I appreciate that this one does!
I kept this Rocksbox 8-9 days, and I think I wore this necklace about 7 times! I'm really glad that I decided to keep this one - I've already worn it several more times - and I've paired it with the Kendra Scott earrings I kept from my last Rocksbox!
Vanessa Mooney The Castaway Bracelet in Silver $95 (Insiders' price $76)
When I first received the bracelet, I checked the the Vanessa Mooney website, and it was also $76 there. I'm not sure what made me go back, but a week later, I looked on the Vanessa Mooney website again, and the bracelet was discounted to $38, nearly half of what it would be (even using my Shine Spend) on Rocksbox. I mentioned this in my feedback on Rocksbox, but I didn't receive a response. However, even at $38, I don't want a bracelet I can't fasten by myself - even if it is really pretty. This one went back.
Gorjana Chloe Small Studs $35 (Insiders' price $28) - These are 3/8" diameter circular sterling silver stud earrings with a sort of wavy surface. I was a little disappointed with these considering they were from Gorjana. The finish didn't look like sterling silver - it looked more like silverplate, because in certain light, it looked like there was a bit of gold showing through the silver, and I've never seen sterling silver look like that. Also - and this part is my fault, because I didn't mark it on my profile - I don't wear studs, so these just weren't a good match. These went back as well.
So here's what I'm thinking so far:
I like having jewelry picked out for me. I like having jewelry delivered to my door. I like being able to wear it as much as I want. I like having the option of either buying or sending back any or all of the pieces. Even when the pieces don't quite work out (as with the bracelet and stud earrings), I still enjoy being able to try new jewelry, because I know I can return it and get new pieces whenever I'm ready.
