Your Bijoux Box (January 2016)

"Your Bijoux Box will arrive at your doorstep containing 3 pieces of jewelry, hand curated by Shana. The jewelry we select is on-trend, versatile and wearable,  and you will receive at least $100 worth of jewelry each month. We scrutinize hundreds of pieces of jewelry until we find just the right ones for the box. The sparkles in the box might include a long layering necklace, a fun statement collar, a pretty piece of arm candy."

Your Bijoux Box generously sent this box for me to review, but all opinions expressed are my own.

Your Bijoux Box is only $35 per month (free shipping), renews monthly and is delivered straight to your door.  If you buy 3, 6 or 12-month subscriptions, the price goes down per box.  Each necklace or bracelet you receive from Your Bijoux Box retails for at least $35, and very often much more.

The boxes come immaculately wrapped, each piece in its own pretty bag, and includes a helpful card detailing all of the pieces they chose for the month, plus tips on how to style your new pieces.

January's theme is "Blush Strokes".

The first piece I unwrapped was the Pavlova Statement Necklace

"Add soft, pink hues to your wardrobe this winter with our ballet-slipper colored statement necklace. Style suggestions - camel pleated skirt, ivory fitted top and cognac heels. Beautiful with camel, chocolate, khaki, ivory, army green, gray, and burgundy."

This piece is stunning. Definitely a statement necklace fit for television. I loved all of the delicate details. But I disagree with colors they recommend. I think this could go with EVERY COLOR!!! Just stunning.

The next package included the Anna Crystal Bracelet.

"Blush, champagne and clear glass stone bracelet featuring floral-inspired pieces. Gorgeous with the Pavlova Necklace or on its own. Style suggestions - blush mock turtleneck sweater with burgundy trousers and black booties."

Personally I wouldn't pair this with the Pavlova necklace. They are two different styles and both such big statement pieces, they would overwhelm. I do think this would be beautiful with a black suit, a delicate necklace with similar colors, and small earrings.

I then opened the Pave Button Earrings.

"Simple but stunning silver button earrings that will compliment any Winter ensemble."

These weren't my favorite in the box. Again, another big statement piece that wouldn't really work with the other pieces. But more than that, I wasn't thrilled with the flatness or the gems on them. Maybe a hematite trim with one of the gem colors of the bracelet would've been a good combination.

That's the only thing I'm not completely pleased with about Your Bijoux Box. There doesn't seem to be much curation to the boxes. A lot of times you'll get a great piece that would go great with a piece from a past or present box, but not necessarily the items in the same box.

Regardless, I cannot wait to find out what's in the next box they choose to send me to review!
