Brilliant #JMMysteryBox Review - Box #1

So last month JewelMint decided to release a Brilliant #JMMysteryBox to start the new year off with a little sparkle. They promised each box would have a mix of at least 4 different items and a value of at least $120. I had never tried JewelMint before so I though, might as well give it a try. And lucky for me, they had a promo code for Buy 1, Get 1 for first time customers so I got two boxes for $29.99. (That current promotion is still going on for first time customer as well.)

I was super excited to get my package in the mail and boy did they deliver. My boxes were packed. I was thrilled.

First look when I opened the big box.

The small box on the top and the two pouches on the right are for Mystery Box #1 and the larger box is Mystery Box #2. As to not confuse anyone, I'm going to do the pictures for Box #1 in this post and do another post for Box #2.

This Braided Bangle (Value - $12.99 on sale) is my favorite piece from this box! The bracelet has a magnetic clasp that I find myself playing with a lot opening and closing it. The bronze crystals on it give off such a lovely sparkle when the hit light hits them as well. I put it on as soon I took out it out of the box and have worn it multiple times already. It's a great addition to my ever growing jewelry collection.

Space Triangle Necklace (Value - $19.99 on sale) This necklace is from JewelMint's Space Age Collection is subtle and pretty all at the same time. Another item I absolutely love as well.

Midas Sun Earrings (Value - $29.99) These earrings are stunning! I love how the spikes on the bottom add a little edge to the classic crystals. They'll be great additions especially for spring and summer.

Cream Pave Glam Cuff (Value - $12.99 on sale) This cuff is from JM's Gatsby Party Style Collection. It's cute but a little snug on my wrist. It's more costumey than I like so it will probably get added to my stuff to give away box.

Rush of Love Bracelet (Value - $29.99) I fell in love with this bracelet as soon as I pulled it out of the little cloth bag. It's striking and definitely has a glamorous feel to it. It is a little big on me and the clasp was tricky to figure out but it would go perfect with a little black dress. 

Unfortunately I couldn't find this bracelet on the site. On my invoice they said they included a bonus piece for being a first time customer and I'm assuming this is it. It's simple and classic but does not fit my wrist. 

The total value for this box ended up being $105.95 (without the bonus piece). I was a little disappointed that it fell short of the $120 value promised but the second box made up for that.
