As I have been exploring my style, I’ve been hesitating to buy too many new items. Jewelry in particular is a challenge. My jewelry is very minimal – I generally wear the same simple gold hoop earrings and “B” necklace everyday.
I found Switch a month ago, and have really been loving it. It’s a monthly jewelry rental service, with high quality jewelry pieces (they say the average retail value is $500). They have a well-curated selection with a range of styles – everything from minimal to bold to trendy (apparently chokers are back!). The cost depends on how many pieces you want at one time: Gold is 1 piece ($29/month), Platinum is 2 pieces ($49/month), and Black is 3 pieces ($69/month). You keep each piece as long as you want, and then you return and select a new one. They are pretty quick – once they receive the item, I can immediately get a new one, and they ship within two business days. The company is in Los Angeles, so I have been getting the pieces within on day, but it might take a little longer the further you live (they ship regular USPS, except for the first item which came next day air).
I’ve gotten two pieces so far, and have really enjoyed them. I’ve tried to select pieces a little out of my comfort zone, and while I wouldn’t have bought any of them, they are so fun to try. Each piece comes nicely boxed, with a fun note card.
First, the Chloe Hoop Lariat Necklace (retail $590) – When I first got this piece, I didn’t think I would like it. It was a heavy, brassy gold chain – not my style at all. But when I started playing with it, I found I really liked it. It went with more casual and more formal outfits, and brought a little style to my neutral outfits.
Next, vintage Chanel clip-on earrings (retail $500) – I liked the bold statement look of these earrings, and the brassy gold vintage look with the faux pearl center. They would go well with office wear or evening wear. These were larger than I would normally wear, and a bit on the heavy side for me, so I didn’t keep them on too long, but they inspired me to keep bolder gold earrings in mind.
I’m still using the program, so stay tuned for my next review. If this review has helped and you interested in joining, please consider using my referral code: TaoCarolyn22J The Switch website is here. This is not a sponsored post, but I will get a small referral credit. Thank you!
