Last month I was asked to be sponsored by Rocksbox and be a RocksBox IT Girl! Like any new opportunity I approached it with a combination of tingly excitement and a dash of sneaky suspicion.
So, let's begin. What is Rocksbox?
Rocksbox is a fun new way to have unlimited access to designer jewelry specifically tailored to your style.
Basically, it's jewelry rental. A stylist hand selects pieces from several incredible brands that correlate with your style and specific requests. You are sent a set of 3 pieces of jewelry priced at an average of $200. You can wear them as long as you like, exchange them, or buy them. You then rate each piece of jewelry so your stylist can get to know you better. It's a constant flow of new designer jewelry for just $19/month.
At first, I wasn't so sure. I don't wear jewelry often and happen to have very sensitive skin. I thought to myself, "Am I even responsible enough keep them safe and what about the quality of the jewelry? Would it be a hassle to ship back? How long does it take?"
Thankfully my adventurous side kicked in & I thought "Why not? I get to try new styles I normally wouldn't try, have new fashionable jewelry to wear for photo shoots, meetings, shows and gallery viewings. I would also have to form new positive habits for myself.
With all this in mind, I researched the site further, read reviews and made sure it was reputable. Everything looked good, so I pulled the trigger and agreed.
Let's do this!!
First I was asked to take a style survey which was much more fun than I thought. I got to browse a huge selection of jewelry, adding all my favorites to my wish list. Once done, I anxiously waited 1 week for my 1st box to arrive. I was given a tracking number, so of course I was checking on it practically everyday.
Upon arrival I was immediately impressed by the packaging! It came in a cute white box with a big pink bow! There were fun quote cards, my name, cleaning instructions, a note from my stylist and every piece of jewelry had a specific lil bag to keep it nice and safe! There was definitely a lot of thought involved with this and it showed!
Then, of course, there was the jewelry…
Rayne Necklace in bright red $80
This is definitely not something I would normally wear, but found myself seriously enjoying its bold appeal. The quality is 100% there and the style is classy yet fun. While I wouldn't wear it too frequently, it is a marvelous piece.
Chloe Mini Double Drop Earrings in gold $55
I just adore these earrings! They felt good and looked great! A great accent for just about any look! I loved the idea of having them dangle in front and behind the ear. What a great concept! I must admit the gold was a bit strong for my skin tone. Rose gold would make these into a MUST HAVE for sure! I reported this to my stylist and look forward to seeing what she comes up with next!
Mixed Crystals Blush and Gold Wrap bracelet $38
This bracelet is freaking fabulous!! It's perfect for a casual look or a fancy night out. The neutral colors complimented my skin nicely and it has the most beautiful shine! <3 I could wear this literally ALL the time!!
Needless to say, I'm now in love with Rocksbox! My sensitive skin is not affected by the jewelry proving it's quality, and my stylists really nailed this set for me! Not to mention its very simply to place all the treasures back in their individual bags and send them back. The shipping is prepaid & the box fits perfectly in your mailbox! I've worn these pieces for several shoots since receiving them and have thoroughly enjoyed wearing them for my nights out.
As I said before, I was never much into jewelry, but since getting turned on to this, I've felt myself feeling especially glamourous and confident once I adorn myself with such beautiful items. Now I cant wait to get my next Rocksbox! It's like a fun little surprise each month! So totally awesome, lol!
*Models, this is absolutely FANTASTIC to have a steady flow of new jewelry to use for shoots & public events.
