Olia Box: February Review

Oliaboxfeb1

Here’s what I received in my February Olia Box: Just a reminder:I get the $45 box – I chose gold and selected both bold and dainty jewelry.

If you don’t know what OliaBox is, you can find my first review and a description of it here: Olia Box: Monthly Jewelry Subscription

Came in the mail the same way it came last time, delivered via USPS – nothing damaged (address blocked out in this pic).

Another anti-tarnish bag holds the jewelry. Nothing was tangled or broken.

The theme this month was blush tones and simplicity, it seems.

Which, is pretty perfect for me because I’m a lover of all blush tones.

ahem.

cough. yep. so, it might be an obsession. Regardless…. I have lots of pink/blush/rosey colored jewelry. Which makes me both sad and happy for this month’s Olia box. I have been hoping for things that make me step out of my jewelry box…. and this necklace and the earrings are safe.

Blush double-stranded statement necklace:

The necklace is pretty. Gold chain/hardware. Depending on the light, the bigger stones are pink or apricot. The smaller stones are a white transluscent stone – they are pretty. Honestly, I would have looked at this necklace in a store but probably not have chosen to purchase. I will wear this necklace.

* The rings are my own, I purchased these from Old Navy some time ago…. they are a bit much next to the necklace but they did look nice with this outfit. I’m also wearing the midi ring that came in this box ๐Ÿ™‚

The earrings:

Blush studs: these are pretty. Kind of big, but that’s jut my personal preference. I will wear these, but not with the matching necklace. Gold hardware.

Diamond studs: These are very pretty. Again, I have probably 2-3 similar pairs already in my jewelry box…. as I assume a significant amount of other girly girls do. They won’t fool anyone, they don’t look like diamonds, but they are decent quality CZ’s and give off a nice crystal sparkle. I like them, and I’ve already worn these as well.

Braided Midi Ring: very cute! I’m glad they sent this, as I’ve been wanting one (a few ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) of these. It’s simple and cute. I’ve already worn it, and I’ll be getting more I’m sure. The quality doesn’t feel that great, I have a feeling it isn’t going to last too long, but I’ll enjoy it until the color tarnishes. It also fits my pinky finger as a ring.

Midi ring and the crystal studs, love it! Also wearing a custom gold and amethyst ring created for me by these awesome crafters: Petro’s Jewelers.

I’m going to give Olia box another month and then if I’m not super impressed I’m going to consider switching to MyntBox or JewelMint.

What do you guys think? Thanks for stopping by!
