Gogh Jewelry graciously sent us one of their monthly Manifestation Boxes to review in our Pages. It came in a simple, yet cute box. I like that they didn’t use a lot of paper, glitter, or other extras in the shipping department. In my opinion, I would rather the box and décor are simple, and the money better spent in product or material for the customer. The box consisted of a necklace, a bracelet, and a stone, as well as a handout on the theme for the month and your personal astrology for that month.
The necklace (which was my favorite item in the box), was made with tiny Carnelian bead-like stones, and had a gold flower and bead attached to it. It was dainty but gorgeous, and had a nice weight to it. It had a good quality feel to it. It made me smile as soon as I opened the box, and I was in love with it right away. It had a great feeling and strong positive energy. Included, was a glossy card explaining the Bee and what it symbolizes, as well as another card educating the reader on the properties of Carnelian. I think this is important, because many people are just starting on their path, and without the educational side of things, clients would not be learning, just collecting pretty things they don’t understand, and therefore are unable to learn and understand what they need to-especially in manifesting.
The bracelet was made of agate. It was a beautiful vibrant pink/purple color, with each piece being very different, which of course is true to agate. It was very heavy. A nice solid piece. Gogh Jewelry does give you the option during personalization of their box to put in your sizes for their jewelry, I would suggest being as accurate as you can. I love this bracelet, but it is too thick and big to wear daily-on me. It also came with a glossy card with the properties of Agate.
The stone in this month’s box, themed “Tolerance,” was a heart-shaped Lepidolite, which is a perfect choice on both stone and shape. It is the perfect size to carry daily, keep in a pocket, and hold in your hand if you need to take a minute. It too, was of nice quality, heavy and solid. It was a nice piece, also accompanied by a card with the properties of Lepidolite.
The handout identifying the monthly theme was nothing fancy, just a single sided, one page, black/white print out explaining what Tolerance is and what its opposite is, Prejudice. Szilvia gives a nice explanation, and examples that make the customer understand the terms, when on our journeys we will need them, and why it is important on our path.
The Astrology handout was similar to the “Temperance” hand out, meant for Libra. It takes you through Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars, while letting you know what the Moon Magick will bring Libra for the month. She talked about the Summer Solstice and what to work on and when to re-energize, and what the focus should be for the month. I found it simple, straight to the point and informative.
There were 4 handouts that were advertising additional products, a printed sunflower card quoting the Dalai Lama on Tolerance, and a handwritten note from Szilvia. I was very happy with the quality of actual product in this box, but I could have done without all of the advertisements. The Astrology and Tolerance sheets were informative. I do wonder, however, if this was my first box and I was brand new to “manifestation,” if I would have known exactly what I was supposed to do with the items given. I think it would be a good idea to ask a new subscriber that, or, as a side note if it was someone’s first box, if they received some sort of intro into manifestation and how it works.
A little bit about the woman behind the company:
*The shop is woman owned by one person, Szilvia, who hand-makes all the jewelry. Every piece made is ethically sourced, non-toxic, cruelty-free, and sustainable.
*For over 20 years, Szilvia been working with the A Chance for Children Foundation, volunteering her time and bringing beads and charms to underserved communities in Los Angeles to help at-risk youth.
*She donates to many global emergencies and purchases so far have helped her donate to: National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, Scleroderma Walk, Dive into Pink Cancer Foundation, Celebrate Sobriety, People of the Water and many more causes.
Monthly subscriptions are listed regularly at a $97 value, but are on sale for $39.99; there are different payment options based on monthly, quarterly six month, or yearly plans each giving a discount. If I understand correctly, monthly and quarterly are billed accordingly and the six month and yearly are a prepaid purchase.
As far as the price, I think the quality of product is worth $39.99 for sure – but I wouldn’t pay $97 a month for it. As far as the information given, it was helpful but not enough, in my opinion, to justify the regular pricing. Szilvia’s jewelry is of a great quality, and I would consider purchasing specific items from her for sure.
