RocksBox Review - Get Your First Box Free!

I had a 6-month subscription to RocksBox not too long ago (read all of my previous reviews here) and I had a pretty good experience with them.  Not every piece I got was perfectly suited for my style, but I loved how easy it was to exchange your boxes and get new jewelry.  When they contacted me to see if I was interested in becoming an It Girl Influencer I happily obliged!  What does that mean for you?  Well, for starters, I have a special coupon code that will allow you to get your first box for free!  Keep reading for more information...

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! for review purposes.

RocksBox has changed their look since I last received a box and I like it!  It's very chic.  The box itself is also smaller than it used to be.

If you're not familiar with RocksBox, they're a jewelry rental subscription that sends an unlimited number of boxes to you for $19 a month.  Each box contains three pieces tailored to your style profile, and you'll also get $10 to spend on any piece that you choose to keep.  You can keep each box for as long as you'd like.  Shipping both ways is also free, but they currently only ship within the United States.

Each piece comes neatly packaged in a drawstring bag.  In my experience, bubble wrap is also common for earrings.  I received a necklace, a bracelet, and a pair of earrings in this shipment.

One detail that was new to me since the last time I used RocksBox was that I had a note on my account page from the stylist who chose these pieces for me.  She said she thought that I would like the House of Harlow necklace and chose two other pieces that could be worn with it.  She was right, I love the necklace, but the other two pieces weren't really my style.  That's the fun thing about RocksBox, though, if you don't like something you can just send it back!

I'll start with the necklace.  Its official name is the House of Harlow 1960 PavĂ© Tribal Triangle Pendant in Silver ($58 retail, $46 Insider's Price).  When I opened my box, the side in the photo was what was facing me so I assumed that that was the front of the necklace.  I was wrong!  The other side looks like this.  To be honest, I like the black side better--I normally go for basic looking pieces.  Either way, I like that I could wear this with the bling one day and with the solid black another.

This cuff is the Vanessa Mooney Empire Silver Cuff and it retails for $124!  The Insider's Price to keep it is $99.  Frankly, I can't believe that this costs that much.  Not to be offensive to the designer, but I think this looks like something I could find at any store in the mall for about $20.  It's just not my style.  Also, I have small wrists and this just kind of flopped all over when I tried it on.

The Urban Gem Shooting Star Earrings in Gold ($65 retail, $52 Insider's Price) are just okay to me.  I prefer stud earrings, but these are a weird mix of stud and dangly.  They're too long for me and not something I could wear every day.  I could see myself wearing them to a formal function or a party, but I don't really go to formal functions or parties ever.

Bottom Line: My first box back with RocksBox wasn't a total bust, but it wasn't perfectly spot-on to my style, either.  I'm excited to try more jewelry though, and I'm going to add some pieces that I like to my wishlist on the site so that they can get a better idea of what kinds of things I like.


  1. I LOVE House of Harlow jewelry! That necklace is lovely- although I agree- I would wear it on the leather side as well! :)

    1. I love House of Harlow too! I considered keeping this necklace because I have about $40 in credits on RocksBox, but I think I'm going to hold out for something I love more. The design is so perfect, though!
