This is my Brutally Honest Review for the November Your Bijoux Box, a jewelry subscription service. For $35 a month, Your Bijoux Box will send you 3-4 pieces of jewelry.

Your Bijoux Box November Reveal and Review
It seems like the majority of subscription boxes ship around the middle of the month, which is an exciting time for my mailbox. Today it was stuffed with the tell-tale magenta ipsy bubble mailer and the aqua box that means JEWELRY! As I mentioned before, I have no chill when my mailbox is stuffed with these kinds of goodies. It even made up for the IRS letter I also received (more on that later!)

The November Your Bijoux Box
Collection is called “The Black Box” and it’s filled with items that will make you holiday ready. One of my favorite things about this box is how everything coordinates without being too matchy-matchy. This month everything followed a black and gold theme.
I love a good statement necklace, and I’ll wear them at work or on the weekends to kick up a basic outfit. This one is really pretty and seems like something I’ll get a lot of mileage out of. Your Bijoux Box
includes a style card with each box. I always get a kick out of the style card, which attempts to tell you how wear the piece and sometimes they get real imaginative. For this piece, they claim “This collar manages to be modern and classic at the same time and will elevate even the simplest frock.” Let’s all raise a glass to elevating our simple frocks, Mamanistas.

House of Harlow 1960 Leather Bangle
House of Harlow 1960 is Nicole Richie’s accessory line, and one of the first times I’ve seen a name brand in the Your Bijoux Box
. It’s a pretty, well-made bangle, wide and sturdy with art-deco gold embellishments. However, it’s a slide on bracelet which I am personally not a fan of – I find they are a pain in the ass to type in, and that’s something I do all day. It’s a nice piece, but will most likely be re-gifted. (Surprise!)

Noir Jacket Earrings
Ear jackets and ear climbers are a trend I’m all over this season. I already have a few pairs in different price points (my favorites being these from Kendra Scott
and these from Stella & Dot
) and the Noir Jacket Earrings included in this month’s box are lovely. You can wear the black studs by themselves or add the optional jackets to dress them up.

Cocktail Hair Pin
Your Bijoux Box
has recently started adding bonus items and accessories to their boxes. Last month’s was a surprisingly nice rose-gold eyeshadow palette from Color Club. This month, it’s this chic bejeweled bobby pin. Aside from the fact that I will probably lose it within five minutes of putting it in my hair, it’s a very cute accessory. And the style card assures me that “hair accessories are back in a big way – from barrettes to headbands, luxe upgrades will step up your game this fall.”
One of my favorite things about Your Bijoux Box
is that it gets me to push my style boundaries a bit. And who doesn’t love getting sparkles in their mailbox?! Some of these pieces are ones I wouldn’t necessarily have picked out on my own, but I will absolutely wear them and probably will wear them often. I would recommend this box to anyone who loves statement jewelry or is looking to add to their collection. Even though I won’t be wearing the House of Harlow bangle, I will be wearing the other pieces this holiday season and into the new year.
