Your Bijoux Box: February 2014 Review and Promo Code

My eagerly anticipated February Your Bijoux Box arrived today!  I had tried to remain spoiler free so that I would be surprised when I opened the box, but I accidentally saw a picture of the jewelry in a Your Bijoux Box blog post this morning.  Oops!  I was still very excited to get home and see my jewelry, though.  Here's what I got:

As usual, the box included an information card detailing each piece of jewelry and giving styling tips.

The first piece was the Celine necklace.  A picture of this was released as a spoiler at the end of January, so I was expecting it.  What I wasn't expecting, however, was the fact that the pictures don't even begin to do this piece justice (neither do mine).  It has gray stones alternating with crystals and would be great for a special occasion.  When I took the necklace out of the bag, all I saw were sparkles as the crystals caught the light.  Even the silver chain seemed to be glittering.  The chain is sturdy and well-made.  I don't know how often I will have occasion to wear this necklace, but I am definitely happy to have it for my next evening out!

Next were the Jolie Statement Drops.  These earrings were somewhat larger than I was expecting, but I really like them.  They are definitely attention-catching!  They also seem to go with the Snow Flower necklace from last month, so I will have to try them on together and see how they look.  I'm not sure if that would be too much sparkle at once, but I think it could work.

The last piece was the Love Note Pendant.  This was my favorite item in the box.  It is also larger than I was expecting it to be, but that only makes it more interesting.  The necklace consists of a crystal pendant on a long gold chain.  It's not very noticeable, but if you look closely, you will notice that the center crystal is shaped like a heart!  It's adorable, and contributes to the unique and special quality of this necklace.  I can't wait to wear this!

As you can probably tell, I was very happy with this box.  I think I liked this one even more than January's.  Your Bijoux Box is my favorite subscription, and I'm only sorry that I didn't know about it earlier!  (Speaking of which, if anyone knows of a way I can get my hands on the blue and gold druzy necklace from the December box, let me know--I've been wanting it since I first saw pictures!).  Your Bijoux Box may also be sending out some more everyday pieces in addition to statement items starting in a few months.  I am happy about that because as much as I like the sparkles, I also would love to have more pieces I can wear to work and for more casual occasions.  

Subscriptions for Your Bijoux Box are $35/month.  If you use the coupon code SPARKLES when you sign up, you will get an extra piece of jewelry in your first box!  If you are interested in subscribing, click here.
