I hadn’t heard of Jubees Box until a couple of different readers emailed me requesting reviews. Jubees Box is a stud earring subscription box. Each month they send out four different pairs of stud earrings for $14 + shipping/handling, though at the moment a monthly and one-time subscription is marked down to $10.
Here’s what I received in my September box from Jubees:
Additionally, boxes are currently being shipped with a beauty “extra”:
I like 3 out of the 4 pairs of earrings I received, which isn’t too bad. I’m not a fan of the white and gold hearts, which look both very cheap and juvenile to me. My favorite pair was the first one above.
I was a little surprised to discover that the earrings are not handmade. I was expecting something a little different based upon this description on the Jubees website:
Our mission is to create simple, yet unique, fabulous stud earrings that are fun, and affordable. Each month, Our Jubees Team creates an array of new pairs inspired by fashion around the world.
The term “creates” above lead me to believe that these earrings were being made in Jubees offices in Los Angeles, but when I opened the package I was surprised to see that the earrings are actually made in China. This isn’t that big of a deal nor is it a surprise – what isn’t made in China? – but it likely means that these earrings came from a wholesaler and cost next to nothing.
I chose the one-month plan, so I paid $10 + $2.95 shipping for this box. $12.95 overall is not a bad price, though I am a bit on the fence. The earrings are comparable in quality to what you might find at Claire’s, so overall you’ll probably pay a little less by getting them from Jubee’s. All of the packaging was really nice and I wouldn’t be surprised if the boxes actually cost more than the earrings overall.
There’s no denying that opening up a box filled with new earrings was fun, and if I wore stud earrings regularly this might be a box to which I’d consider subscribing. (As it is, I actually rarely wear stud earrings because I tore an ear lobe when I was a baby, and it’s really noticeable when I’m wearing stud earrings and one hangs so much lower than the other!) I wish the earrings were either handmade or a little bit better quality, but overall $10 for four pairs of earrings isn’t bad. (I’m not sure I’d pay the full $14 though!)
