Have you heard of Rocksbox? Have you considered trying this jewelry rental service? I had no idea what to expect when I signed up, so in an effort to answer the questions others might have, I’m sharing my completely honest Rocksbox review.
First things first. Let’s cover the basics:
What is Rocksbox?
Rocksbox is like subscription box meets jewelry rental service. For a flat monthly fee, they’ll send you three pieces of jewelry that you can keep and wear for as long as you’d like, purchase to have forever, or return in exchange for three more pieces. You curate a wish list using your Rocksbox account, which means the stylist who chooses your pieces gets to see what kind of jewelry you’re into. In addition, each box will contain at least one piece from your wish list.
How much does it cost?
Rocksbox is $19 a month. That $19 gets you three pieces of jewelry to rent for as long as you’d like, plus you get $10 of “shine spend” every month, which is just $10 toward the purchase of any of the pieces in your box. The pieces themselves range from $25-$70 on average.
You never pay for shipping, either. The box ships to you for free, and you keep the mailer it comes in, slap on the accompanying prepaid label, and mail the whole thing back when you’re done.
Those who know me might be thinking I’m the least likely person to try a jewelry rental service. I wear jewelry in some form every day, and I enjoy growing my collection with pieces I love, but I’ve never been obsessed with having the latest and greatest designer jewelry.
I never considered signing up for the service because designer jewelry isn’t important to me and because I don’t mind wearing the same several necklaces and the same several pairs of earrings. I figured Rocksbox would be great for those who want to be able to wear “new” jewelry all the time without forking out a ton of cash to make it happen.
But then an invitation to join landed in my inbox. I began to think a little harder about signing up. Finally, I decided to give it a shot. I realized Rocksbox might not just be for women who enjoy being on the cutting edge of jewelry. It might just as much be for people like me, who don’t want to wear outdated pieces, but who also don’t have the time, the money, or the know-how to keep their collections up-to-date. So I signed up.
I got right to work adding items to my wish list. I was actually a little surprised by how excited I was for my first box to arrive. I was nervous, too; what if I hated every piece? Because of all the questions I had, and because of how hesitant I was to try it, I decided to share my experience here.
My Completely Honest Rocksbox Review
So far, I’ve received three Rocksboxes. I don’t have photos of the first because I didn’t know I’d be sharing my thoughts here. I do have photos of my next two boxes, though, so let’s jump in. Here’s everything- plus way more than- you ever wanted to know about Rocksbox:
