Formio Review and Unboxing

There are plenty of accessory rental subscriptions out there, but I'm especially impressed by the beautiful jewelry that Formio has to offer! If you're looking for an affordable jewelry subscription then I think you'll like them, too.

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

Formio costs $19 for a unlimited jewelry and purse rentals. Shipping is free both ways and you can cancel at any time. I looked on the FAQ page to find out to which countries they ship, but I couldn't find a specific listing. I know they at least ship to the contiguous U.S.

I was expecting to get a box from Formio but they actually ship everything in a monogrammed dust bag. I didn't receive a purse with this shipment, but if you do receive a purse and decide to purchase it outright you can save your dust bag to store it in. Otherwise you have to send your dust bag back to Formio when you exchange your items.

When you create an account you can add items to your accessory queue; this allows the Formio stylists to choose pieces for you based on your preferences. I received four pieces of jewelry: two bracelets and two sets of earrings. I didn't add any purses to my queue because the only ones available were clutches and I don't like to carry those (I need a strap with my purse!). I'm a little bummed that I didn't get a necklace to try since they're my favorite type of jewelry, but the pieces I did receive are right up my alley.

  • Possibilities Bracelet - This bracelet is from the Manhattan collection and was one that I had added to my accessory queue. I was drawn to the gold and the beading and figured it would be easy to wear to work or out with friends.
  • Perfection Bracelet - This is also from the Manhattan collection and was a piece I had added to my queue. I liked that it was simple and had some bling to it.

Both bracelets have some stretch to them and fit me well. I have small wrists but I think that both would stretch enough to fit most wrist sizes.

  • Arlina's Adventure Earrings - I usually don't like druzy earrings because they tend to be larger stones but I thought that these were the perfect size. They're from the Manhattan collection and, again, were an item I had added to my queue. It's hard to tell in the photo but they're a very light mint green color.
  • Alta Earrings - I think these are the Alta earrings, they look blue on the Formio page but they're the only ones on the site that have the same shape as the ones I received. They are also from the Manhattan collection and are my favorite type of earring. I love small studs and would definitely wear these on the daily.
Bottom Line: I really liked all of the Formio pieces I received and would wear them on several occasions! I think the Possibilities bracelet is my favorite. Obviously I really like Formio's Manhattan collection, but if these pieces aren't quite your style don't worry--there are plenty of other types of pieces to choose from!
What do you think of Formio? What type of jewelry do you like to wear?
