Here’s a closer look at the items I received for the month of June….
Just like last month, the jewelry arrived nicely wrapped with a mint blue ribbon and a matching wax seal of a mintMONGOOSE! It’s such a nice personal touch to their subscription and makes it look like an actual gift rather than a subscription box.
There was a piece of candy included in the box, which was a delicious surprise treat!
In this month’s subscription was a pair of shimmery green square studs. I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not much of a studs girl and usually prefer long dangle-y earrings. These aren’t the kind of earrings I typically reach for, but these still add a nice pop of color to any outfit. There are tiny specks of microglitter in the green gem that gives them an almost iridescent sheen when it catches the sunlight.
The second piece of jewelry is a matching necklace! The necklaces features the same shimmery green gem. I like how mintMONGOOSE attempts to select jewelry that will pair together each month so it’s easy to style them. The style of these two pieces of jewelry is simple and easy to wear. Plus, the pop of shimmery green gives a subtle statement.
The third and last item this month is a red glass stone pendant. The pendant is translucent and it features a black smoked effect which really shows in the light! The length of this necklace is noticeably longer than the previous green necklace. I assume that these are meant to be layered together, but I personally think it makes them clash a bit. I would still layer this with other silver necklaces though. Nevertheless, this is a fun and unique piece of jewelry that is sure to add a statement to your outfit!
mintMONGOOSE Review June 2018 – Final Thoughts
Even though the pieces I received for the month of June weren’t really my cup of tea, it was still fun to receive. The three pieces of jewelry were really unique and I loved how the square studs and necklace match! Just like last month, mintMONGOOSE takes out the guesswork in pairing jewelry together and makes matching the pieces together so easy. I’m excited to see what next month has in store!
