How many pieces are in my box?
We focus on quality over quantity. There are between 1 and 2 pieces in each box. Our guarantee is that the value of your box will always exceed what you pay in membership, on average over 25% savings off the product retail price.
Every piece is carefully selected to ensure that style and quality is at the forefront.
What are the jewels made of?
14kt gold filled, designed, to last, is the primary material for the jewels in your box; select pieces are high quality plated.
Gold filled jewelry wears like 14kt gold over their lifetime. Gold filled is much thicker than traditional plated jewelry, it's not thin and doesn't flake. Our pendants/charms are 14kt gold filled or raw brass. Raw brass pieces come with polishing clothes so you can polish your pieces back to their shine and luster.
Details about each individual piece is included in the box.
Please review our care instructors and quality guarantee.
How do I care for my jewels?
A product description of your pieces will be enclosed in every box in addition to a care card with tips on caring for your jewels.
Additionally view our general care instructions here.
What's the sizing like?
Being size inclusive is important to us. Golden beauties of all sizes can enjoy the box.
Necklaces that are shorter than 18" will come with an extender, so they can be worn shorter or longer. Tell us your bracelet size when you subscribe. Not sure of your size? See the chart below. Finally, any rings included will be adjustable.
Can I see examples of box jewels?
Can I update my preferences?
Yes. When you subscribed, you indicated your earrings preferences, bracelet size and initial.
To update this information please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important: Update requests must be submitted at least a month before boxes begin shipping.
For example, if you want to update preferences for your December 15th shipping box, you must submit your updates by October 15th.
Because we begin designing and curating boxes immediately after each enrollment period, we may not be able to accommodate preference changes thereafter. Updates received later will be applied to the following box.
Can I return or exchange?
Unfortunately we don’t offer exchanges or refunds. Due to the early preparation required to curate each box, we’re unable at this time to accommodate returns or refunds.
We aim to design and hand select stylish, everyday, quality pieces that will build a complete and timeless collection. We also intentionally package your box like a gift –should you want to gift it to a friend.
What if an item in my box is damaged?
We prioritize quality and carefully review every product and every box prior to shipment. If a product in your box is damaged please contact us within 7 days of receiving your shipment. A member of our team will work to resolve the issue.
What is the quality guarantee?
We pride ourselves on providing optimal quality in our jewels. We also share very detailed care instructors for every item so they can last you for years.
If an item in your box tarnishes within 1 year we will exchange your piece. If the original design is no longer available one of equal value will be sent to you.
This guarantee does not include physical damage as a result of wear and tear on part of the member. This guarantee is strictly for abnormal tarnish or discoloration of your pieces.
What are the personalized boxes?
Your Personalized Box - During each cycle members will receive a personalized box in which the jewelry features their initial. When you join tell us the initial you want us to use on your jewel curation for your personalized box! You can also opt out of personalization by selecting 'none'. A Golden Stories cycle consists of five seasons. Within every five seasons one seasonal box will be a personalized box.
