If you’ve been following my blog long enough, you already know that I love bling. Vintage, contemporary, DIY, you name it, I love it. The bolder is the better by all means and that is why I am obsessively drawn to costume jewelry. I have been collecting for awhile and am always on the lookout for new designers and curious pieces. Since I can barely find space for new additions anymore, jewelry rental has been on my radar for some time. With the emergence of Rent the Runway, the Netflix of fashion making designer dresses available at a moments notice for a special event, it was only time until a company focused solely on jewelry would find its spotlight. For me, Rocksbox is one such company.
Based in San Francisco Rocksbox is a membership-based jewelry styling and rental service that gets you access to a personalized rotating closet of designer jewelry, sent in sets of three at a time. When you sign up you get to go over the available jewelry and like any pieces that caught your eye. This allows the Rocksbox stylist to learn about your taste and select the 3 items you’d truly love – all for a flat fee of $19/month including shipping. You can wear the jewelry for as long as you want and return your Rocksbox set anytime and as often as you like! When you return a set, a new one is sent to you right away. I think it is a fantastic idea especially for those who have a hard time committing to buying expensive jewelry or those who want a personalized attention of a stylist to stir them in the right direction or simply try new styles at a fraction of a price!
I eyed the jewelry for a week and then signed up waiting for my lovely package to arrive. Getting a membership could not be simpler too! Here is a simplified step by step version:
YOU: Sign-up and choose the pieces you love
RB: Stylist curates you first unique collection and sends the magic box your way
YOU: Receive your lovely jewel surprise, wear it as long as you want and return when you are done! P.S. You can buy the pieces you love too! By excluding one, or more, pieces from your return package, your card will be charged for the price noted on the jewelry description note enclosed in the box.
RB: Once the return package is received, the stylist chooses another jewelry set for you!
When I came home a cute box waited at my doorstep. I saw an “R” on the package and knew I was in for a bling treat!
Inside I found three pieces carefully wrapped in individual pouches for best delivery and safekeeping.
I love how each piece was bubble wrapped to avoid any damage in route:
Cute individualized reading materials explained how the process worked and how much each jewelry item sells for in case I wanted to keep it. I love the adorable note with a sassy quote – I am such a sucker for colorful stationary!
To conclude, I really loved the Rocksbox experience from simple signing up process to delivery and quality of jewelry selected for me. The package included a note from the stylist working on my box so I could provide feedback to better curate any future collections. I am a big Rocksbox fan now and want to share the bling love with my readers! When you sign up, use code “katyaposhrx” at checkout for 1 month of free Rocksbox subscription! I hope you love it as much as I do!
