A few months ago I gave myself a gift.
I’m not in the habit of frivolous spending on myself, but man, let me tell you, spending that 30 bucks felt GOOD.
What? Did you think it would be more expensive? It’s me we are talking about.
After thinking about it for a good long while (that’s my M.O.), I signed up for an Anonymous Jewellry subscription. It’s a monthly subscription service that sends you a present every month. In this case, 1 to 3 pieces of costume jewelry. I prepaid for 3 months.
You have no idea what you’re going to get or if you’re going to like it. That was part of the fun for me, oddly enough.
My subscription was a little over 30 bucks for 3 months (I used a coupon code). Since I signed up (3 months ago) they’ve changed the price structure a little bit so you can order a specific number of pieces for a specific number of months. You can also select if you have a preference for gold or silver jewelry.
Was it worth it? There’s one necklace from my first month’s box that I’ve worn several times a week (see below). There’s also a pair of earrings that I’ve worn at least once a week, so I’d say it has been worth it.
Also, as the below picture demonstrates, when you can’t even take a selfie by yourself, you might be due to treat yourself to something that is just for you.
Honestly, it was the ‘happy mail’ factor for this subscription that really did it for me.
It was something to look forward to – a present I’d given myself. A true present because I didn’t know what it was going to be when I unwrapped it.
There are also a few pieces that I looked at and laughed out loud. Not because they weren’t pretty, per se, but because I couldn’t imagine wearing them. For rings, necklaces and bracelets, I’m all about the flash. In the earring category, I’m a minimalist. I know. It makes no sense, but it’s just where I’m at in my style evolution.
On the other
ear hand, my daughter looked at these over-the-top-for-me earrings and said, “Ooh! Those are so pretty, mom!” I can picture her wearing them too. You know, when she actually gets her ears pierced. Which she wants to do, by the way. Is it too early? I digress.
Quality-wise, I’d say what I have received is comparable to other inexpensive costume jewelry you’d buy at a department store. These aren’t heavy-duty heirloom pieces, by any means, but nothing has broken in the 1- 3 months that I’ve had the jewelry. I also don’t typically wear jewelry while sleeping, cleaning or doing yard work though.
By the way, Anonymous Jewellry is an U.K. company. That’s why jewelry is spelled with two Ls. The company offers a return policy and has free worldwide shipping according to their website. I’m outside of the U.K., so my subscription counts as worldwide shipping too.
This company does not know me, other than as a customer, but in my 2nd or 3rd box I got this coupon code for 15% off, so I’m sharing it with you: ANNISA15
I checked it (use all caps) and it worked as of few days ago, but let me know if you have problems. Not sure I can fix it, but I’ll try!
I enjoyed treating myself with this jewelry subscription service. Right now I’m trying to decide if I renew it or try a different subscription service. I’ve already done Birchbox. Choices, choices!
I definitely think Anonymous Jewellry would be a fun gift to give someone: a mom, a teacher, a friend, a sister, YOURSELF! It’s a fun way to bring a bit of happiness to someone’s mailbox!
P.S. Let me reiterate again, this company doesn’t know me and I have not been compensated for this post. But, in fairness, I’m always open to that possibility. Call me! Actually, don’t call me. I don’t like to talk on the phone. Message me. Yeah, that sounds better. Shameless disclaimer over. For now.
