Here’s my quick review for this month’s Sparkle Box package. I received a Subtle jewelry collection this time around, and I have to say I was very excited after I unboxed it! Each piece looked dainty and beautiful. Very classic and could stand the test of time.
Here’s what I received, from left to right:
- Dripping with Style Earrings
“This teardrop-shaped duo is subtle and reserved with their blush marbled cabochons. The pretty gold-stone settings add some sparkle.”
- Charlotte Necklace
“Two layers of sparkly charm. This piece features a small red drop bead pendant with dangling seed beads and hammered metal accents.”
- Set in Stone Necklace
“This necklace is sure to make you sparkle! A silver druzy stone is complemented by dangling seed beads.”
Aren’t they gorgeous? Unfortunately, when I tried on the Set in Stone necklace, the chain broke off. Michael was able to fix it for me, but I still wasn't impressed that it happened at all. I sent @SparkleBoxShop an unhappy tweet, and they got in touch with me. They offered to send me a bonus Subtle piece on my next box. I honestly feel torn about it because while I love most pieces I’ve received, I haven’t had totally stellar quality. It’s not like I can really complain with the price I’m paying though ($19 with free shipping). I do appreciate that they’re willing to comp me for my troubles. I’m willing to let it slide if I like my next box.
Here’s the Set in Stone necklace from an outtake for my previous What I Wore post, Skirts and Hats. I really do think it’s pretty. The chain could be thicker, considering that the pendant has some weight to it. I can see this necklace going with the majority of my wardrobe. Let’s hope it doesn’t need any more fixing!
Here are the Dripping with Style earrings. Please excuse the pink ear. (* μ_μ) I’m not allergic to any metal but my ears definitely react to getting touched and poked. These are regular post earrings which is great. I don’t like hook earrings all that much. I do love dangling earrings, but I looks for post ones when I can. So what can I say about this pair? I like them too!
And here’s the Charlotte necklace, also worn in my previous post. I love the layered style! I generally don’t pile on necklaces, but this one is just understated enough to prevent from looking gaudy. Paired with a crocheted top, it’s the cherry on top of that sweet, delicate look. I can also see this matching well with a lot of my clothes. Gold jewelry is great with my skin tone. All in all, despite the initial mishap, I'm pleased with this collection's look. I feel like it nailed my current style and tastes, and I'll be getting a lot of wear out of them for the months to come. Ball's in Sparkle Box's court to follow through with their customer service. I hope the next box won't have any problems!
