Being the late adopter that I am, when Netflix first came out with their DVD subscription service, I was skeptical. Pay to have DVDs delivered to you? Just rent a movie at Blockbuster, the old-school change-phobic in me sneered.
Fast forward almost a decade, and not only do I get DVDs delivered to my home but also water, toilet paper, Christmas gifts and almost all my clothing. So when I heard about a subscription service that actually delivers jewelry to your home, I had to check it out.
Rocksbox works a lot like Netflix in that you pay a low flat fee every month ($19), pick out your favorite pieces of jewelry, and a stylist works with you to deliver three pieces to your home. Wear the jewelry around town, IG the heck out of it, and when you’re ready to move on, send them back with the prepaid envelope. As soon as Rocksbox gets the package back, they send out a new set of three pieces for you to play with.
It’s genius because frankly, my style is constantly evolving, and I just can’t commit to buying that much jewelry. I either end up buying the occasional investment piece or trendy cheap stuff from H&M to wear for the season until it turns green. But Rocksbox gives me a chance to road test jewelry from mid-level designers like CC Skye, Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 and Kendra Scott. It’s fun trying on a new style that you wouldn’t think you’d like, only to discover that it’s the perfect addition to your already crowded arm party. That happened with the Robyn Rhodes druzy cuff I’m wearing above.
