With Wantable out of the picture for a while, I decided to finally try a different jewellery subscription box. The sneak peek of the Crimson Mimosa Bangle from Your Bijoux Box enticed me, so I decided to give them a try. Your Bijoux Box is not a box that’s customised, and most customers receive the same set. However, they do honour the “no earrings” request. For my first box, I used a code to receive an extra piece of jewellery, with the box costing me $35 with shipping. I received four pieces, two bracelets and two necklaces.
This is the box I got, and it took a lot longer to get to me because USPS just let it sit in one of their facilities for five days. X_X; I wasn’t pleased by that delay! It eventually came in this pretty turquoise coloured box. Under all the contents, there were packing peanuts to ensure protection during shipping.
The jewelleries came in the organza bags, and they were also in another plastic bags. Along with the jewelleries, they included an explanation card.
This is the description on the back of the card that described the set of the month and some style tips.
And these are the actual pieces I received in my box. From left the right, the pieces are:
Gilded Posey Necklace ~ I really like the Gilded Posey Necklace — even better that the chain was long enough for me to just put it over my head. However, my mum liked it even more, so I gave it to her.
Crimson Mimosa Pendant ~ I didn’t like that its chain was so thin and delicate that it tangled up easily! I had to fight with it for a couple of minutes to untangle the chain, and after that trouble, I decided to not bother trying it on — though my mum did.
Simple bracelet ~ This also had a thin chain with a tiny lobster clasp. I didn’t bother trying it because I wasn’t in the mood to fight with the tiny lobster clasp.
Crimson Mimosa Bangle ~ This is the bangle I looked forward to, but I was super disappointed in it. First off, the metal was really malleable to the point that it felt super cheap. Then one of the red gems fell off the bracelet after my mum and I tried it on! It just fell off! That only made me really feel like the bracelet was cheaply made.
All in all, this was a disappointing experience. While, I felt like the quality of the jewelleries were slightly better than Sparkle Box’s, I am not sure if it was worth paying $35! Plus, I wasn’t enamoured by all the gold and red I got in this box, even though my initial reaction indicated I may like it. I think I’ll just stick with Helene Jewels. Theirs seems to be the best deal for my money and their jewelleries are much better quality!
