October 2016 Emma & Chloe Review + 50% off coupon
Emma & Chloe has been a premier provider of unique jewelry in France since 2013. They also run a US subscription box that gives US residents the chance to get their hands on designer French jewelry at a low monthly cost. For $35 per month, subscribers will get a piece of French designer jewelry valued from $50 to $200.
After purchasing an Emma & Chloe box in August, I was offered the chance to review the September box, which I similarly enjoyed. I additionally received the October box and was curious to see what it would include.
As always, the box arrived in a protective envelope that buffered it from any damage that might arise during the shipping process. This is a well-made box that pairs well with the designer-quality of the jewelry provided through the subscription.
Along with the jewelry, each Emma & Chloe box includes a magazine called “La Gazette”. I’ve started noticing that these magazines tend to revolve around a theme, with this month being a “femme fatale” theme.
Here are some previews of the magazine’s contents:
I find the magazines to be interesting - I especially like the quizzes they include.
The box also included a postcard that depicts the month’s jewelry item (so, yes, you have been spoiled.) This is an item that I wouldn’t assign a monetary value, but I think it’s a nice addition to the box. I have a couple of friends who like communicating via postcard and this would be perfect to send to one of them.
But, of course, the true value of the box comes from the jewelry piece it features. This month’s Emma & Chloe box included a “Cherry Blossom” ring from Alexandra Margnat. This ring came with either a gold or silver finish based on the subscriber’s stated preference.
I like this ring even more than the Peter Hopper ring that came in the August box (although I still like that one.) This design seems easier to maintain and has a unique texture. I also love how it looks when worn.
Here are some pictures of the ring in use:
The ring sells for €81 from Alexandra Margnat, which was the equivalent of $89 at the time of this review. It fits neatly into the $50-$200 value range promised by the box and far outweighs the box’s $29 to $35 cost.
Overall, I was once again delighted with Emma & Chloe and this is my favorite item from them yet. So far I have gotten two rings and one bracelet from them, so I am interested to see what types of jewelry pieces they offer in the future.
