Surprises are fun! Well, most of them are…I can’t say I was thrilled about that surprise $400 phone bill this month. The surprises in my January Your Bijoux Box were far, far more enjoyable! Your Bijoux Box brought me lots of elegance – matching earrings and a classic Y necklace, along with an incredible architectural gold necklace, plus a surprise bonus jewelry tray.sample affiliate links
The January Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three jewelry/accessory pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three items for women (this month there were three items plus one extra item). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized, everyone gets the same jewelry each month, although January has different options for one of the necklaces. A monthly subscription is $39.99 and there are options for a three-month ($115) or six month ($230) subscription. They ship to the US (free!) and Canada.
The first item I found were the 3-inch-long Ysabel Earrings. These are cobalt blue hanging earrings that frame the face and really stand out, even for those of us with longer hair. I love these earrings – they have great movement and look incredible on. They are very versatile and look just as good with jeans and a t-shirt as they do with a little black dress. They match the Ysabel Y Necklace.
The Ysabel Y Necklace is a lengthy 19 inches long with a full 3 inches of extender chain. The center length is five and a half inches. I wear tons of long necklaces so I was very pleased to find this classic beauty in the box. I don’t ever wear it with the earrings, though – somehow, together it’s just overkill. Separately, they are statements enough to stand alone. Both are gorgeous and hardy enough to classify as essential workhorses in your jewelry wardrobe. Your Bijoux Box did a terrific job curating these pieces, in my opinion.
The superstar piece of the month is the Jules Smith Necklace. This is the necklace style that came in my box – your piece may vary. I am totally digging the art deco vibe! I can’t find this particular piece online, so I’m not sure what the value is, but Your Bijoux Box says that the Jules Smith pieces they include in the subscription boxes can retail for up to $175. I am totally going to pair this with the Jules Smith bracelets that came in my November 2017 Your Bijoux Box – remember these beauties??
The surprise extra in the January 2018 Your Bijoux Box is a cute Cheers! Jewelry Tray, which is rimmed in gold and features a cream background and black details.
It’s very attractive and a great place to put your rings, watch, earrings, etc. I have been using it as place for the jewelry I pick out to wear for the next day so I don’t have to go hunting around in the morning and it saves me a few minutes.
I love this month’s box of elegance and style. I am getting tons of use out of every single item. These lovely baubles took all the sting out of that horrific phone bill, that’s for sure!
It’s a great time to treat yourself to a nice surprise once a month. I know I always look forward to it! – Lisa
