Another month of Rocksbox fun! Well… sort of. Read on, you’ll see. Don’t know what Rocksbox is? It’s a subscription service that sends 3 high-end designer jewelry pieces a month on loan for $19 a month. You can purchase any of the pieces you are sent at a discounted price and get $10 credit towards doing so. Whatever you don’t want you send back in the postage paid package at the end of the month and wait for your next set to be sent. Want to give it a try but a little scared of commitment? Use the code “cervinoxoxo” and snag your first month of Rocksbox free!
Okay so here is my first box. Look familiar at all? If not, let me direct your attention to my last month’s box here and way back to my April box here. One thing I hated about StitchFix was that they use the same stylist every month, so if you’re assigned to one that sucks you’re SOL. Rocksbox on the other hand gives you a new stylist each month. So far I’ve liked that about Rocksbox… I get a variety of pieces to try out, and often end up falling in love with pieces that I would never have picked out myself. The downside though is they aren’t as familiar with your history with Rocksbox I guess… or perhaps this stylist just didn’t bother to look at my history at all, since I was sent the exact same Kendra Scott druzy earrings in a slightly different color this month that I was sent just last month, and the same Margaret Elizabeth bracelet I was sent in a past month that I told Rocksbox I couldn’t wear because it was too big. I might be getting bigger every day right now, but the bracelet is still too big, and the earrings are still too expensive for what they are. Although both are pretty pieces, and I love that the druzy in them both match each other so they look good together, they just aren’t keepers for me. So sadly, two of my pieces I automatically said no to.
The upside is this gave me an opportunity to test the responsiveness of Rocksbox’s costumer service – and they pass my test. I was responded to promptly, and given another month of Rocksbox to hopefully receive more variety and an extra $10 forever shine spend to use towards making a purchase.
And now for the good stuff. When I saw this necklace by Jules Smith I hated it. Then I wore it with the dress below and changed my mind. Now I’m thinking it’s a keeper as I keep wearing it with outfits and find it easy to throw on and glam up a look. Plus I don’t have anything like it. And that, my friends, is the beauty of a service like Rocksbox. Never in a million years would I have picked out this necklace. I almost never even tried wearing it once it came in my box. But I gave it a chance and now I don’t want to give it back. It retails for $75, but Rocksbox members can buy it for $60. Adding in my $10 credit for this month and the other $10 credit from my above experience and the price comes down to $40. Still more than I typically spend on necklaces, but not too bad if it’s one that I’m going to wear all the time.
So are there some issues with my Rocksbox this month? Sure. Am I going to keep using them? Yes. Should you give them a try? Of course when the first month is free using the code “cervinoxoxo“. I think this is just a one time glitch that was bound to happen since this is my sixth month using the service. Now that I’ve talked to them and they’ve made note of it I highly doubt it would happen again. If it wasn’t for loving the necklace and say I hated the third piece I got I may feel differently, but the necklace was such a hit for me that I’m still a Rocksbox fan.
So decisions, decisions, decisions… should I keep this necklace? I’m also wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences with Rocksbox or any other subscription service? Let me know below and have a great weekend!
