I experienced another delay with my Rocksbox shipment. For the second time in less than a month, my box got stuck at the mail depot in Santa Clarita. By stuck, I mean that the tracking showed the box arriving in Santa Clarita, and then there was no movement for a week.
This is not the fault of Rocksbox, but fearing that my box had become lost, or perhaps decided to take up permanent residency in the lovely town of Santa Clarita, I informed Rocksbox customer service.
Rocksbox customer service responded within a day, and immediately they mailed out box eleven. Box eleven ( to be reviewed in another post), arrived on the same day as the delayed box ten. Styled by Eleanor, here is what arrived in ten.
I'm a fan of Melinda Maria designs. I own several Melinda Maria rings, but I have not purchased any in many seasons. I was thrilled to have the Melinda Maria Cade Pave Ring included in box ten.
The ring doesn't strike a good balance between the delicate disc and thick band. Another problem is the pave, it's set too deep to show off any sparkle. You've gotta have sparkle! Not a keeper.
I love the deep wine color of the Loren Hope Sophia Studs in Merlot.
However, look at the right earring in the picture above. The stone has a discoloration. Dan pointed it out and once you notice the flaw, you cannot un-notice it.
I really like the style, color, and shape of these studs. They would have been a great addition to my jewelry collection, but the flaw in the stone made them a skip.
The Jill Michael Double Bar Necklace in Gold seemed very plain at first glance and I was disinterested because of previous problems with multilayered necklaces.
But when I put it on, it was delicate and flattering. The two layers hung without problems.
This necklace became the second piece of jewelry that I've purchased from Rocksbox. What really swayed my decision, was how much Dan liked the necklace. Immediately, he declared it a keeper. My husband telling me to shop, doesn't happen every day. I used my monthly and forever spent ( $20.00) towards the purchase of the necklace. A new piece of jewelry for thirteen dollars = score!
