Cate & Chloe VIP Jewelry Subscription Box Review, August 2014

If you've ever shopped Cate & Chloe's fashion jewelry website, you know that the buying experience with them often results in VERY nice surprises.  Read more about that below!

Cate & Chloe has recently introduced a subscription box option called "The VIP Box". For $39.99 a month, you get over $200 worth of designer jewelry.  Shipping is free for the box. VIP status also gets you 20% off any other item on their site and free shipping. Longer term subscriptions options that offer substantial savings are available:

3 Months - $108.00
6 Months - $204.00
12 Months - $384.00

In the process of signing up for The VIP Box, you can take a quiz which helps pinpoint your jewelry style preferences. I've filled out quite a few personalization profiles for other sub box companies and was not holding my breath that my choices would really be reflected in the items I received. As you'll see, I was happily proven wrong!

You're seeing TWO pink boxes here because shortly after enrolling, I received a completely unexpected complimentary gift from Cate & Chloe....a stunning Princess Diana inspired pear-shaped pendant called the "Diana Divine Necklace", which is valued at $115. (You may be skeptical about the retail values shown in this review but I can attest that all the C&C pieces I received are of beautiful quality.)

The pendant came in this charming little box tied with a black ribbon bow.

Inside was the amazing Diana Divine Necklace. My photography skills really don't do it justice but it's a spectacular little sparkler!  The pendant measures about one half inch from top to bottom and is suspended from a delicate silver chain. What a tremendous first impression of this company!  Retail $115

A couple of weeks later, I received the first actual box in the subscription.  I was expecting two pieces but once again, Cate & Chloe exceeded expectations; I received THREE beautiful pieces! The first box contained a pair of earrings that matched the necklace I received earlier.  Here are the beautiful Diana Divine Stud earrings! Retail $125


The second pair of earrings in the box are called the Nadine "Hope" stud earrings. These are gold with tiny crystal accents and measure about 3/8" in diameter. Absolutely beautiful and just my style!  Retail $99  

My August Cate & Chloe box contained a "Perk of the Month", which turned out to be these fabulous Lynne "Pretty" Crisscross earrings!  Once again, a drop dead gorgeous design featuring a silver plated arc crossed by another CZ-encrusted arc.  These elegant studs measure just under an inch in width.  Retail $99

Of course, different subscribers will receive different pieces based on the answers given to their style quiz, but I am really impressed at the amazing job Cate & Chloe did at matching my preferences.  I really feel like a personal stylist picked these pieces for me!

For the record, I have purchased individual pieces of Cate & Chloe jewelry before and the start to finish buying experience has ALWAYS been stellar. With fashion jewelry this beautiful, I have to wonder if there is any point in paying for the real thing?

Forgive the gushing, but I'm so happy with my first Cate & Chloe box; I think I'll go upgrade my membership right now!
