RocksBox is a bit confusing to me, I’m not sure what members really get out of it. They send you 3 pieces of designer jewelry a month and whatever you don’t like you send back but if you like it you can keep it and they’ll charge your credit card. I have a few issues with this.
All 3 of the items I received don’t look special enough to be worth the price in my opinion. That’s not even my biggest issue. All the items I received had scratches and dings on them which leads me to believe they have been passed from member to member. I wouldn’t have such a big problem with this if I decided to purchase an item and then Rockbox sent me a brand new one. But to pay $55-140 for a used and damaged piece of jewelry seems ridiculous to me. Rockbox gives members 2 months to wear the jewelry before they have to return it. So these items could be highly used. And even though they say they sanitize the jewelry before they send it out to you I would never be comfortable to put those earrings in my ears. Who know’s how many people have worn them.
Depending on which Rocksbox membership plan you go with you’ll be paying $19-$15 for this service. That isn’t deducted from the cost of an item should you choose to buy it so I’m guessing that price covers shipping and insurance incase you accidentally damage and item. I have 5 months of membership left so I’m just going to stick it out. Hopefully things will get better.
