My Second RocksBox

I did NOT want to send my second Rocksbox back! I adored the simple but sparkly pieces they sent me and was wearing them almost every day.

For details about the Rocksbox jewelry subscription service, check out my first post.

I loved them so much that I wanted to buy the pieces, but then I had a talk with myself about the whole “you’re in debt” issue. This is a fun way to wear more expensive jewelry without having to buy it! But you can bet some sales on Kendra Scott are going to be on gift wish lists in the future.


My first Rocksbox set was more statement pieces — a gold necklace, chunky gold bangle, and big earrings I thought overpowered me. This time my stylist went more delicate — a gorgeous Kendra Scott Elisa necklace, a Sophia Harper Bar necklace, and a pair of tiny Sophia Harper Pave sparkly studs that were a much better size for me.

Of course, send in the cute packaging specialized for me.


I kept this box for a long time, wearing the jewelry probably every other day. The delicate pieces fit my lifestyle much better than the first box, as I don’t have a whole lot of fancy special occasions that call for big statement jewelry these days. I love that these were simple but felt so, so special.

Finally, though, I sent them back (in the clutch pre-paid envelope) and am awaiting my last set of jewelry. I love that I have no idea what I’ll get — just some suggestions of favorites I tagged on the website — but all of the jewelry is so gorgeous and nothing I’d never splurge on myself.

In the future when I have some more flexible income, I can totally see myself using Rocksbox more regularly. For just $19 you can get hundreds of dollars worth of beautiful designer jewelry and keep it for weeks to make your outfits feel new and fancy. It’s also a way to get great ideas for jewelry you DO want to buy — did you end up wearing something a TON that you didn’t think you’d love that much? (I know I did — that Kendra Scott necklace!)

Thanks again to Rocksbox for allowing me to try out this service and wear some gorgeous pieces for a few months. I’ve totally fallen for the service and recommend it to all my friends!
