Going For Gold | GLITZBOX Review & Giveaway*

Hey beauties!

So if you follow me on YouTube or Instagram, (if not then, what you playing at girl?!) you may have seen me talk a little about GLITZBOX. It’s a jewellery rental subscription service, where you pay between £39 to £59 a month and receive three carefully selected items of beautiful gold or silver jewellery. You wear these items for the whole month and then have the option to send them back, OR buy them, at a discounted price. Along with the jewellery you also receive Glitz Credit, which you can use towards one of your purchases. I’ve teamed up with GLITZBOX to show you what’s inside my box this month, and if you keep reading, you’ll have a chance to win a 3 month subscription yourself!

P.S. What do you think of the glittery flooring? I felt like it fitted perfectly with all this Glitz talk!




Before I get into my box reveal and review, I thought it would be best to explain the GLITZBOX concept a bit more. Firstly you take a style quiz so that they can get a feel for your jewellery preferences. For example are you into dainty chokers or chunky tribal necklaces? Does yellow gold wash you out, or are you more into silver bling? Piercings or nah? You get the idea…

You then select your price point and wait eagerly for your box.

 Simples! (Spoken in the Compare the meerkat voice)

This cute little polishing cloth comes in the box to keep your GLITZ sparkly!



Now for the box and its contents! I'm so impressed with the quality of the three pieces I received and am loving wearing them with different outfits this month and I definitely feel like the pieces matched my style. I also hadn't heard of any of the brands in the box, which is great as it makes the whole process more fun and unique. 

You get a little booklet with your order (the back of it is in the picture above) which acts as your jewellery menu/purchasing form, and then it cleverly folds out into a calendar, which marks the dates you need to return your GLITZBOX by! - Which I'm pleased about as I hate companies that are hazy about their returns and cancellation policies - This booklet goes back in the box at the end of the month along with the jewellery you decide to send back, and you can leave feedback about the pieces you received.

Fortress Large Thorn Hoops, Ros Millar - £195
These stunning hoops by Ros Millar are textured gold plated silver, and I fell in love with them at first sight. I only wish they didn't cost £195 else I'd be using my £30 GLITZ credit on them without a doubt! They're a really classic design but the textured gold makes them so eye-catching and edgy. It's going to be a sad day for sure when I send these beauties back to GLITZBOX HQ! 

Portobello Bar Leaf Necklace, Sharon Mills London - £55

This beautiful necklace by Sharon Mills London is so pretty yet understated and the yellow gold goes nicely with my tan (yes a very very slight tan, hush). It's also much more in my price range so I'm thinking this is where my GLITZ credit will be going! The length is also perfect; it sits just under my collarbone so goes with both open shirts and high necklines. I've worn it to work a few days this week and keep getting compliments from customers on the pretty the intricate leaf design. (Yep it's settled, I'm keeping it!)

Pina Bracelet, Tea & Tequila - £58

The style of my final piece is quite different from the other two, and it's this amazing bracelet from Tea & Tequila. (Props goes to them for having such a cool name too) After looking into this brand, I've seen they also do handbags and homeware, so there's now a wishlist up to my elbow of their products. I'm going for cocktails with a friend this weekend and can't wait to wear this with a gin or tequila-based drink in hand. The jewels are mexican hand-cut amethyst and quartz and are so stunning in person, I also love the texture of the pineapple and that it is slightly curved so that it hugs the wrist nicely. 



All in all I think it's a really clever concept, and would make the perfect present for that friend of yours that has everything. (We all know someone like that, right?) I also think a lot of people are quite fickle when it comes to jewellery so having the option of wearing something for a month (to events and in Insta photos) and not having to commit to purchasing it is really handy. I love seeing companies support smaller brands and the little card that comes with each piece is a cute finishing touch as it gives you a little background on the designer and their social media links (Yep I've already insta-stalked and followed all three brands).

What do you guys think? Could you see yourself using GLITZBOX?

  3. Oooh, I'm so intrigued by this concept! I love the idea of having a constantly rotating jewellery box, giving you the chance to experiment with new designs and looks every single month! It's great that you can purchase your favourite pieces too! I'm not surprised that you're keeping the leaf necklace, it's beautiful! So dainty but really unique and eyecatching! I'm a big fan! I have taken the quiz with your referral code, so fingers crossed I'll be able to sample this service too!!

    And btw, the "Simples!" part of this really made me giggle!

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I do love this idea and think it's really original however I'm not convinced I could afford the initial subscription fee! I do think it would be quite to hire jeweller though - you'd never get bored!

  5. I love the Tea and Tequila piece, it's so unique! This is a great concept and I love that you can either send them back or buy them at the end! I definitely don't switch my jewellery up often enough to justify it, although I guess that's the beauty of being able to send it back!
