I absolutely love my Emma & Chloe ring from last month, so I was beyond excited when they offered to send me another box to review. I have gotten so many compliments on the ring and wear it all the time! The quality is truly excellent–I’ve washed my hands while wearing the ring and bumped it against things by accident and the finish hasn’t rubbed off or shown any scratches at all.
Emma & Chloe Jewelry Box is a monthly jewelry club that represents independent, up-and-coming French jewelry designers. In addition to their monthly shipments, you can also purchase jewelry from their online boutique.
Every month they feature a designer and send a surprise piece of jewelry, though you can choose if you prefer gold or silver and whether or not you have pierced ears. If you do the month to month plan, it’s $35/month. If you prepay, the price goes down to $33/month for a 3 month subscription, $31/month for a 6 month subscription, and $29/month for a 12 month subscription. The unique piece of jewelry is always valued between $50 and $200, so you’re getting a significant discount no matter what option you choose.
And for today only, Emma & Chloe is offering a $15 off promo code! Use code THANKYOU2 to get $15 off your first month. If you do the month to month option, that’s only $20 for a gorgeous piece of high quality jewelry!
This box ships inside of a padded envelope so the black box is perfect upon arrival. That’s a great little detail that I really appreciate. I love keeping and reusing sturdy boxes like this! They’re perfect for gifting or storing little knick knacks. The packaging of Emma and Chloe’s jewelry is beautiful–I adore the little illustrations inside the box!
Each month comes with a little mini magazine that gives more information about the featured designer and other articles about France. The magazine is thoughtfully written and contains entertaining articles, including a fun quiz at the end! I love it when subscription boxes put extra effort into their informational inserts. It really makes the box feel so much more special and well curated!
I love that they feature so much information about Paris! In my previous shipment the magazine had a list of the best coffee shops in the city. Reading these lists gives me some serious wanderlust!
Each month comes with a postcard that features a picture of the jewelry. Last time the picture felt really promotional so I didn’t feel comfortable sending it to a friend. It just felt like too much of an advertisement. But this time I actually think the picture is pretty and wouldn’t mind sending it! I guess the difference is that this time the picture seems to have more of a narrative. I appreciate the time that Emma & Chloe takes to style their jewelry for these photos, and think this is a great picture that evokes the sense of spring.
Tassia Canellis Necklace from the Twenties Collection | $59.00
Unfortunately, my necklace arrived like this! I could tell that it was a really delicate necklace so I really took my time to untangle it without damaging anything. Emma & Chloe always sends a certificate of authenticity with each piece of jewelry, which also includes care information and more details about the materials. I love that this month features freshwater cultured pearls! I love pearl jewelry!
About 15 minutes later…yay!
Look how pretty! I love delicate gold jewelry so this is perfect for me! It is approximately 21.5 inches long. The pearls are so dainty and add a whimsical touch to the piece. I can picture wearing this with almost every outfit! It’s a great everyday piece but also sophisticated enough to dress up for a night out or special occasion.
Even the tag at the back of the necklace is cute! The lobster clasp is strong and well made, and the jump ring is large enough to easily clip on yourself. I know this probably sounds pathetic, but I think I have really bad coordination. I always struggle so much with putting necklaces on myself when the jump ring is too small! Please tell me I’m not the only one.
Anyways, I’m totally obsessed with this dainty little necklace. I think it would look amazing layered and also simple and chic on its own. As the weather gets steadily warmer here, I definitely have spring on my mind. The pearl and gold combination feels so seasonally appropriate! It looks and feels breezy and soft. Perfect with a sundress!
The only thing I would do differently is the packaging of the necklace. It’s so delicate that it tangles easily and the way it was put in the pouch for shipping really didn’t make it feel very special. When I took mine off, I wrapped it around the certificate to prevent tangles in the future, and think this would have been an easy way for Emma & Chloe to mail them out! In the future, I hope all the necklaces are packed in a way that takes tangles into consideration. I was so nervous that I might damage the necklace when I was working out the knots! And you really should not have to spend 15 minutes untangling a necklace after you purchase it.
Okay, I really love this subscription! I think it’s a great “quality over quantity” sort of subscription. You get one well made authentic French piece of jewelry every month instead of several cheap costume pieces, which is amazing for building a high quality collection. If the ring I got last month was any indication, these pieces will look stunning even when you wash them by accident.
I personally feel like the value is great as well. It’s not easy getting products from some of these smaller French designers because of shipping costs, customs, and overall availability. For example, I was not able to find this particular necklace online. I did find this designer on a couple sites, but there was a very limited selection of her items. This necklace is more unique compared to a lot of my other necklaces (Dogeared, J. Crew, etc.) because it’s not something that is available at a big chain store or anything.
If you’re looking for a great subscription to gift, this one would be a wonderful candidate! The packaging is so beautiful, the magazines are interesting to read, and the entire presentation feels thoughtful.
Don’t forget: Emma & Chloe is offering a $15 off promo code! Use code THANKYOU2 to get $15 off your first month. If you do the month to month option, that’s only $20 for a gorgeous piece of high quality jewelry! This offer ends tonight, so grab it now!
