The company has the attention of those with deep pockets.

Rocksbox – a startup launched in 2012 that sends jewelry boxes to subscription customers for $19 a month – has raised more than $8 million from a gaggle of venture capitalists, The Wall Street Journal writes, citing VentureWire.

The company, according to the article, ships boxes filled with three jewelry pieces to customers, who receive a new box after they return the previous jewelry shipment. Customers have the option of purchasing as few or as many items as they like, and this aspect of Rocksbox makes the business model “much more attractive, increasing revenue beyond income from subscription fees,” according to one venture capitalist who spoke with the Journal.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
