Here’s a closer look at the items I received for the month of August….
As always, the jewelry arrived in a cute nicely wrapped box with a mint blue ribbon and a matching wax seal of a mint mongoose! This personal touch to their subscription always makes it feel like I’m receiving a gift rather than a subscription box.
Included in every monthly box is a piece of candy. So far, it’s always been a piece of Werther’s Original hard candy, which is my favorite!
Grey Glass Pendant Necklace
The matching earring and necklace set included this month features a simplistic grey glass design with a beautiful rose gold chain. For the past several month’s, I’ve been receiving the silver jewelry, but rose gold is definitely my favorite! It makes the necklace look 10x fancier too in my opinion. The grey glass stone is slightly oversized, but the minimalistic design gives it a dainty feel. It’s a great length to wear with a v-neck or to use as a layering piece.
Grey Glass Studs
The matching grey glass studs are much more dainty compared to the necklace. It also features a rose gold design, but the studs are not oversized. I think this pairs wonderfully with the necklace and balances the oversized pendant. The color and style of this earring would also go with any outfit!
Adjustable Beaded Bracelet
The last item for August is this adjustable cord bracelet with cream-colored beads. This bracelet features a sliding knot which can be adjusted to fit most wrist sizes. There are four cream/beige colored beads separated by a braided cord design. It gives off a very earthy, boho chic vibe to it that I think looks best when worn casually.
mintMONGOOSE Review August 2018 – Final Thoughts
I am very happy with this month’s jewelry selection and the rose gold variation I received! The rose gold jewelry gives off a classy air of sophistication that I think pairs wonderfully with this month’s items especially. The necklace and earring set was dainty and simple and all 3 pieces can easily be worn by anyone and with any outfit. Though I personally wouldn’t pair the bracelet with the Grey Glass Necklace or Earrings, I think it does add a bit of diversity between the jewelry styles. I’m excited to see what mintMONGOOSE has in store for the next month!
