I used to subscribe to Your Bijoux Box for 6 months in 2017, and enjoyed almost everything they sent me. I cancelled my subscription because I simply needed to pause for a while. When I saw the spoilers their February 2018 box I had to re-subscribe. This box sends jewelry that is not too dainty, follows trends, and sends quality pieces, everything I like and need. Also, they occasionally send Deepa Gurnani pieces, and I really love those. Through this box I also fell in love with House of Harlow jewelry, which fits my style.
They send three pieces of jewelry, but
almost always include something as a bonus. If your ears are not pierced, you can request no earrings when you sign up. Also, you can easily skip a month if you do this before billing, and they email you a few days before the billing. Starting with the May 2017 box, you can update your ring size in your profile (sizes 5-8).
Since I last reviewed the box, there was a slight price increase (in late 2017), from $36 to $39.99 US. All current subscribers could keep the previous price, but since I cancelled my subscription, I am now subscribed under the new price. I could’ve technically just kept skipping every month, since they offer this wonderful option, and I would’ve kept the old price, but I was afraid I would forget it. So, new price it is!
The cost: US $39.99 + $10 shipping to Canada
Ships to: Canada, US
You can use coupon code WELCOME to receive a bonus piece in your first box. You can see what I received in my first box here. You can also “spin the wheel” (if that is still being offered), to receive various coupons for % off or bonus pieces.
Since the last year they also changed their box, which is bigger than the one from my last 2017 box. The box is branded, and quite sturdy.
Everything is well and nicely packed, and my jewelry always comes in perfect condition. The inside of the cover features a quote (the same one every month, but different one from the last year). I believe they change the quote yearly.
March box theme is Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
The card contains information about the pieces in the box, as well as some styling suggestions.
These are all the pieces in the March box. They usually all come in their separate organza drawstring bags, but this time around House of Harlow piece arrived in a House of Harlow branded bag, and the two Your Bijoux in-house made jewelry pieces came in bigger, branded pouches.
Celtic Princess Collar
This is an in-house made necklace that was spoiled a few days after I was billed for the box. I was glad to see this spoiler, since this is the type of jewelry I was hoping to receive in this subscription, and it put me at ease knowing that I would like at least one piece in the box. The necklace itself is statement, without being too flashy, and I can easily dress it up or dress it down, depending on my mood. It is somewhat adjustable, and although the individual “spikes” and bars tend to flip when I’m handling the necklace, once I put it on it stays perfectly aligned and there is no flipping. The necklace is not heavy and I enjoy wearing it. In terms of quality, it is better made than similar jewelry I usually buy at the mall (H&M, Forever21, Aldo).
I think the necklace was randomly named just to fit into the St.Patrick’s day theme, which is OK to me, but if anyone knows if there are any Celtic symbols represented in this necklace please let me know, I love learning things like that.
I am wearing the necklace in the last photo.
Aowyn Emerald Ring
This ring was also spoiled, but only two days before I received my box in Canada, so I’m assuming that most subscribers in the US already had this box when the spoiler came out. This is another in-house made jewelry piece. I love the way it’s made, following the trend of stackable rings, without me having to stack them individually. In terms of quality, this ring is just OK, and feels a bit cheap. I’d say it’s on par with H&M and Forever21 jewelry. The rings are not aligned perfectly and the material is a bit stiff. I selected size 6 ring when I signed up for the subscription, and the ring fits on my size 6 ring well, maybe a little bit tight. I am not sure if they sent different sizes of this ring, though, since it’s open on the inside and slightly adjustable. I am not sure how much can it stretch without breaking, though.
I really love the design of the ring, and I’ll be wearing it for as long as it can survive.
House of Harlow Native Legend Cuff in malachite
This is the first branded item in the box, and the only one that had variations, although very small. Subscribers received the cuff in malachite (green) or turquoise (light blue), with a listed value of $78 USD. I had some trouble finding the cuff online, and could only find it being sold for SGD$29 on an Asian website (linked above), also listed on Nordstrom Rack for $13, but sold out. This is a common thing with Your Bijoux boxes. They send out discounted/sold out House of Harlow jewelry regularly. I am completely OK with receiving a discounted item, especially because of the great quality of HoH pieces, but I wanted to point this out, since some of you may not like it.
This cuff is exactly what I expect from House of Harlow. It’s sturdy, slightly adjustable, great for stacking and comfortable on my wrist. The green color doesn’t match the ring perfectly, but it’s pretty close. I love it!
A Deepa Gurnani piece as a bonus? Yes please! As far as I could tell, everyone received this same headband, with the same color and chevron pattern. Your Bijoux Box listed the value at $60 USD. I couldn’t find it online, so I linked to all the Deepa headbands on their website. similar type and quality pieces go for $60-80 USD (obviously, lots are available on sale, but harder to get for me in Canada, especially with the shipping charges).
The headband is made with sparkly beads, faux leather back and stretchy band. It’s a bit tight on my small head, so I can wear it only for a few hours at a time, but it feels comfortable on and doesn’t slip at all.
Here I am wearing the necklace on the shortest setting and the headband. I like the necklace like this better, but you can add another inch or two with the attached extender chain. The headband can be worn in many ways, but I am still new at wearing them, so I’m figuring it all out. I think I like it this way. It’s sparkly enough to be interesting, but not too much, so I can wear it without attracting too much attention.
This is another home run box from Your Bijoux. Every piece suits my style, I love receiving Deepa Gurnani pieces, and I’m really becoming fond of House of Harlow art deco style. The jewelry is not too matchy, and I can combine it any way I want, and with the jewelry I received in my previous boxes. $50 USD (box + shipping) I estimate I received jewelry worth $163 USD, including the bonus item (I estimated the necklace at $20 and the ring at $5, but they may be worth more). Even at the lowest discounted prices I could find, I estimate that it all adds up to $98, which is almost double the cost of the box.
You can order Your Bijoux box using this link (all the links in this review are referral links and give you $5 US off, and me a $5 equivalent in points). This helps me get more boxes for reviews, but if you don’t wish to use my referral, you can google the name of the box.
This box is still available for purchase, and there are still no spoilers for the April box. You can watch out for some April box spoilers on the Your Bijoux Instagram page.
This box is pricier than some other jewelry subscription boxes, but the jewelry they send is generally of great quality and suits my style, which is why I chose this box over others. I do believe that shipping to Canada is too expensive for such a small box, and that is the only thing that may make me cancel (again) in the future, since it really adds up with our bad conversion rates. I wasn’t charged any customs duties yet, and will inform you if it happens with the following boxes.
