I signed up for my subscription and while I am usually patient with this type of thing, it took over a month to be processed. They reported a spike in subscription requests and never thought they would have so much interest so fast. That is really good for them but it left me a little sour before I'd even received my first shipment. In RocksBox's defense, I was sent an email apology for the delay, a $10 credit was deposited in my account and was assured that once I started the service, there would not be any lag time. If I had paid for this service, it would have been a turn off... but I didn't soooo want to see what cam in my first box and what I thought of their jewelry? Read more after the jump.
When I did finally receive the first box, I eagerly opened what I had been waiting for for over a month. I didn't even remember what I had logged in my style survey so I was curious as to what RocksBox sent me. It was mildly disappointing. Along with a prepaid return envelope, I received two pairs of earrings, one of which arrived broken (don't worry, I just need to send them back. They returned my email right away along with another credit for the trouble) and I also received a necklace, of which I thought was nice and I would at least wear once before sending back. The earrings that I LOVE and was immediately like "OK, I can see what this service is about, introducing you to new jewelry"... are $144.00. I am doing OK for myself but I don't think I will be spending that much money on a pair of really cool but not super versatile earrings. You know? I don't blame this on RocksBox, this is my being cheap-y haha.
I don't want you to think that I am totally knocking Rocksbox... because I plan to use the rest of my subscription to the fullest. The idea is still there and hopefully they get to know me better. They offer a way to rate your box so that they can cater your future boxes to your style. That's fine by me. It's a monthly membership fee but you can keep jewelry longer than a month or return it right away for a new shipment. You can make the most out of your membership and look at it the way it makes the most sense for you.
Overall, I will likely use my Rocksbox to the end of my subscription as a means of borrowing some great jewelry and incorporating the baubles into looks. As for purchasing any of the jewelry? We'll see. I do love the current Druzy earrings and maybe something that I love just as much, and a little more affordable, will come a knockin' in the future. I will surely keep you all updated on how the rest of my membership turns out.
Have any of you joined RocksBox? What do you think?
