Adornable Box

by christinamdick

I am SO excited to talk to you all about Adornable Box. Remember the boutique,  Beckett, that I mentioned in my Charleston travel post? The owner, Athena, just started a jewelry service that’s amazing.

Here’s how it works:

After you share some info about your preferences with Adornable, they’ll send you a box full of jewelry to try. You have 3 days to try on your jewelry and decide which, if any, you’d like to keep.

Then, pack up the box with the items you are returning, use the enclosed return label to return the box, and ENJOY your new pieces You’re only charged only for the items you keep.

Everything came in these cuttle little pouches with personalized notes from Athena about why she chose the items. The prices are also noted on each piece.

I’ve tried jewelry subscriptions before and never found anything I loved. I like delicate jewelry that’s simple but pretty and that’s exactly what Athena picked out for me.

I LOVE this bracelet. This and the earrings are definitely my top two picks. I’ve been wearing the bracelet almost everyday. The necklace with the tiny blue beads is so elegant and unique. IMG_1679

I was amazed by the quality of all of the pieces.  The #1 thing I was concerned about is having pieces that don’t tarnish and that hold up well. Even though the prices range from only about $15-$35, everything is so nice. I’ve worn these several times and everything is sturdy.

These are the kind of earrings that slide through your pierced ear so a section is on either side. I wore them everywhere from a Christmas party to work.

This piece was neat in that you could wear it as a necklace or as a bracelet.

I layered the blue bead necklace with a piece I already had. The notecard Athena has enclosed with it suggested I pair it with a white/cream blouse, which I’ll definitely be trying.

To sign up for an Adornable box of your very own (or get one for a friend for Christmas!), fill out this form. For the holidays, you’ll get a $10 coupon in box to use toward favorite pieces. If you’re giving Adornable as a gift, you can purchase a gift certificate of any amount for the receiver to spend on their favorite pieces!
