Jewelbox: October 2013

JewelBox is a monthly jewelry subscription where for $10 a month you will receive one piece of handmade jewelry.  When you sign up you fill out an online form with questions about your coloring, style and favorite fashion items.

This month I was so disappointed I ended up canceling my subscription.

Blue Keychain

Verdict
Total Miss
Instead of jewelry, I received a keychain.    It’s got a fairly large stone attached to a run of the mill keychain.  First, this is supposed to be a “jewelry” subscription.  A keychain is not jewelry.  Second, while $10 isn’t much, it’s more than I’d spend on a keychain.  Now, the stone attached is pretty and I may end up taking this apart and using it to make something else for myself, but I felt like this was a huge cop-out so while I usually give my subscriptions an extra chance after a truly disappointing box, I felt that this one was warranted.

So what do you think?  Is a keychain jewelry for your keys?  Should I have given jewelbox another month?

Jewelbox – September 2013

Interested in a subscription box but leery of some of the high price tags? You may want to give JewelBox a try.

Unwrapping

This month I received a lovely gold necklace with a wire-wrapped stone pendant.

Necklace 2

Verdict
Hit!
The chain is medium length with a lobster clasp and has a nice quality to it. The pendant is lighter than you’d expect so it will be easy to wear. The color is very neutral so it will go with pretty much every item in my wardrobe. The quality is very nice for the $10 price tag.

My only suggestion would be to include a little business card or note with the shipment. With multiple subscriptions, it took me a little while to figure out which one this came from. (Although it was kind of a fun mystery for a little bit).
