OVERVIEW  OF CONTENTS

An info card is provided with a list of the items inside – the theme this month is Once Upon A Time!

Art Print – the art included every month is so gorgeous and this is no exception! I especially love this as it features Regina, my favorite character! ❤

Regina/Evil Queen Ring – the love affair continues with a ring with Regina as well, yesss! I love rings and don’t get them often enough in these jewelry subscription boxes, so it’s super exciting to receive one featuring a character I adore! Look at that sexy sassy silhouette, she’s so badass. 😀 I’ve been wearing this ring daily since it arrived!

Captain Hook Pocket Mirror – when it rains, it pours…this was the first pocket mirror I ever received in a box…in the next week, another TWO boxes each came with pocket mirrors, lol. I don’t need to look at myself that much! It certainly is convenient to have one of these in my handbag, but I’m not sure how long they’ll last without getting scratched up since there’s no case covering the mirror to protect it from damage or dirt. But hey, at least if one breaks, I’ve got two spares… 😉

“All Magic Comes With A Price” Bracelet – this is a simple yet elegant design! I was a bit worried about knocking it against my desk when I’m on my keyboard all day at work, but even though it looks delicate, this is actually a rather hardy bracelet that’s standing up well to my rough treatment. 😉 And what a great choice of quote, as this is an important mantra in the tv series.

My other concern was whether it would fit, since this wouldn’t be easy to stretch to conform to my wrist, but it slipped on easily!

Once Upon A Time Cast Magnet – I always love getting magnets in boxes! 🙂 This one is a bit darker than I’d prefer, but you can still clearly identify the characters. I’m amused by how it looks as though Snow is trying to shoot the apple out of Regina’s hand, hehe.

Snow White Apple Earrings – Everything about these earrings is fantastic! The rich color, the shiny crystals, the different designs for each apple instead of creating a duplicate… I adore these, they’re just stunning!

“Once Upon A Time” Necklace – this is a very bold statement piece! I couldn’t wear this every day, it’s rather too flashy for me, but it’s a great representation of the theme and very unique! I haven’t seen a piece like this before in the many jewelry boxes I’ve come across – the multiple strands and cute little charms is so creative!

I will note that the owl doesn’t quite make sense to me, though – the fairy, the key and the heart are all relevant to the series, but I don’t remember an owl figuring in any episodes? This seems to be just a cool charm added on for aesthetic appeal, which isn’t a bad thing (I love owls), but not wholly relevant either. Although it’s making me doubt my recall of the show – there wasn’t an owl in any OUAT eps, right? IS there some significance? *ponders*

VERDICT

Quality of Curation: 10/10, I can’t find fault with anything here! The staple pieces are all so well-chosen, from the darling little red apple earrings to the chic and classy cuff bracelet to that ‘wow factor’ necklace which is a fabulous embodiment of the theme. I also loved the inclusion of a ring and magnet this month as they’re my favorite type of additional items, and the pocket mirror is a neat new piece to this box, very practical!

Worth It? Totally! This cost me $44.32 AUD and I’m happy it’s yielded a couple new accessories to add to my daily rotation of jewelry. 😀 While I’m not in the OUAT fandom anymore, it was important to me for a long time, I have many fond memories of it and I’m so pleased that this box has done it justice! But the great thing is that non-fans would have a lot to love here as well. 🙂

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 kitties approve this box!
