Hello and Welcome!
I hope your day is going very well and you’re enjoying your week so far!
A few weeks ago I was browsing online looking for a new type of subscription box. I’ve had beauty subscriptions before, and after switching to cruelty free I’ve subscribed to one box (review will be coming soon) but I was looking for something different. Which is when I came across this jewellery subscription from Anonymous Jewellery, and thought I would give it a go.
For anyone who hasn’t heard of Anonymous Jewellery, they offer a subscription service for fashion jewellery. There’s a choice of 2 pieces of jewellery, 3 pieces, or 4 pieces. Each have a different price point. You fill out a short profile detailing whether you prefer silver, or gold, jewellery, or a mix. You can also provide a list of your favourite pieces from their website, and your stylist will try to incorporate some of them.
Unlike other subscriptions, they won’t take a direct debit each month. You can choose whether you want to resubscribe and pay each month that you decide to subscribe. If you want to find out more, you can do so on the Anonymous Jewellery website here.
I chose to get 4 pieces, for £16.50 as a one-off subscription (you can purchase 1 month, 2 months, or 3 months of boxes in one go). As this was a one off box, it was posted and delivered in a week. Otherwise, the boxes are sent on the 12th of each month if you’ve chosen a 2 or 3 month subscription.
After looking through the Anonymous Jewellery website, I believe that I received the following items:
- Silver Salina Necklace – £9.00
Opalite Sun Necklace – £9.00
- Mia Clear Crystal Bracelet – £12.00
Based on these prices, the total cost for the items in the box would be £39. Considering I paid only £16.50 for these items to be delivered, I think that it’s really good value. Especially when you can state you’re interested in certain pieces (I didn’t do this, but will next time).
One thing I love about this subscription is that it’s designed to fit through your letter box. This means no missing the delivery! The box is slim and pink, which is cute. Inside there was a card that said ‘you are beautiful, you are strong, you are worth it’. I love when boxes come with this kind of little card, it’s just an extra touch that makes it nicer, and I’ll definitely be keeping it! Inside the box was the 4 jewellery items packaged individually, and a small fabric bag with ‘Anonymous Jewellery’ printed on it, there was also a sheet with care instructions.
All in all, I really like the way that this box was presented. This proves that you don’t need a huge box to deliver a great subscription service.
Silver Salina Necklace
The packaging and presentation of each jewellery item with the pastel leaf backing cardboard is adorable. However, I have to say that this was the item I was least interested in, and it’s my least favourite item out of the box.
The description for this item on the website is as follows:
‘Crafted with two chains for an effortless take on the layered jewellery trend, our Salina necklace is perfect for smart-casual styling.’
Personally, this necklace reminds me of being a child as I used to love layering necklaces like this but have fallen out of doing that as I’ve got older. I do like the small details that hang off of the chains but I’m unsure if I would wear both of these together as a layered necklace. Luckily, they are actually two separate necklaces, which I really appreciate, so I potentially would wear one without the other. This is just down to personal preference though, I just am not the biggest fan of this type of layered necklace.
Opalite Sun Necklace
I prefer this necklace over the first one that I pulled out. I think the pendant is really pretty. It’s sort of an opalescent white in the centre with a sun-like pattern around the outside.
I’m not completely sure of what jewellery I like (apart from silver only), which is why I chose this subscription. However, I’m not sure that this is 100% me. I do really like it, and I probably will wear it, it just didn’t wow me immediately. That being said, I think it will probably grow on me, as I did have it on for a while after I’d taken the picture of it on. I just need to work out what to style it with.
Mia Clear Crystal Bracelet
I was really drawn to this bracelet when I saw it in the box. It’s something that is in my comfort zone and I will definitely be wearing this most days with my watch and potentially other bracelets. I really love this as you can layer it with other bracelets/watches, and it would fit in really well.
Interestingly, the closure for this bracelet is a little bead that you push to tighten the bracelet. I’ve never seen that on a jewellery item before but I really, really like it. I can’t be the only one who fumbles around with bracelets that have lobster clasp closures. Lobster closures are all good for those romantic moments in movies where people put jewellery on other people, but firstly most guys I’ve met have no idea how to work them, and secondly they’re really difficult to work alone, especially if the jewellery item is on your wrist! So having this little bead that slides is unbelievably helpful, and I am so appreciative.
Overall, I really like this bracelet and will definitely be wearing it in the future, probably a lot!
Silver Diamond Pearl Earrings
Have I saved the best until last? You bet!
As a quick tangent, I’ve had a stretcher in my left ear for years but for a few months I’ve been thinking about taking it out. When I saw these I knew it was time. Typically I wear different earrings in each ear. I think the different earring action started when I was in my emo phase (who didn’t have an emo phase) and thought it would be so cool to wear different earrings, then it just kind of stuck. I have 8 ear piercings, and every one has a different stud. Whilst I’ll probably continue this (because why break tradition) with studs, now that I’ve removed my stretcher, I’m going to invest in more pairs of earrings like this to wear because I love how it looks.
The second I saw these earrings in the box I was super excited and that didn’t change when I put them on. The diamond dangle part for these earrings is actually part of the butterfly back of the earring, and the pearl is the part that goes through the ear. Once again, this is something that I haven’t seen before and I think it’s really cool.
This is definitely my favourite item from the whole subscription, I’ve already been reaching for them a lot and I know that I’ll get a lot of use out of them.
Overall, I think that this subscription is really good and I would recommend it. This is the first subscription of this type that I’ve come across and it’s refreshing to see something different. The prices are super fair, I like that you can choose how many pieces you get in the box, and I’m glad that you can specify what jewellery tone you would like and any specific pieces from their website that you like. I will definitely be getting another box from here in the future – I might try stating which pieces I like as I didn’t do that this time.
If you’d like to get a Anonymous Jewellery box, then you can do so here. Alternatively, if you’d like to browse any of the pieces individually, then you can view necklaces here, bracelets here, earrings here, or rings here (currently all of the rings are sold out).
This brings us to the end of this review of the ‘Anonymous Jewellery’ Subscription Box. I know that it’s slightly different to what I usually do, since I’ve never reviewed jewellery before, but I hope you enjoyed it regardless! If you did enjoy this post, then please be sure to give it a like and I’ll potentially look into trying similar subscriptions (or this one again) in the future. Additionally, if you think my blog contains content that you’d like to read (I typically do beauty reviews) then make sure you subscribe to stay up to date with when I’m posting – I post twice a week.
