Our team of stylists is here to help pick the perfect pieces for you. They can give you pro tips on how to wear the jewelry or any other questions you have about the Curate box and how it works. Feel free to say hi anytime.
I'm Sally - born and raised New Yorker! My style is all about mixing basics with a few exotic statement pieces. "If you know you know".
For me, having grown up in Paris, style is all about capturing a mood and feeling beautiful in what you're wearing. I love to mix minimal and timeless jewelry pieces with one really directional item.
My inspiration is drawn upon the constant struggle between the minimalism of my Scandinavian roots and the rawness of New York.
I don't believe in limiting yourself and that is true for how I approach my style, but if I had to put a label on my style... it would be: boho chic sometimes with a modern twist.
Frequently asked questions
What is Curate by AUrate?
Curate is AUrate's dedicated styling service, where your personal stylist handpicks pieces for you to try at home. It's simple, bespoke and completely commitment-free. You just answer a few simple questions, and your stylist will put together an edit of 3 to 5 AUrate pieces to fit your style, preferences and budget — and mail them directly to your door. Try them on, keep what you love, and send the rest back via pre-scheduled FedEx pick up. Shipping and returns are completely free.
Is it a regular subscription-type thing?
No, it's a one-off; we'll only send you a Curate box when you order one – no pressure.
Why would I order a Curate box instead of just making a regular purchase?
Good point – after all, AUrate already has a 30-day no-questions-asked returns policy! The major difference is that Curate is put together by an expert stylist who'll help you find your perfect pieces. Plus, it's also a completely pressure-free way to try on our finest pieces before you commit, letting you play with dazzling diamonds and perfect pearls without any upfront costs.
How much does a Curate Box cost?
It's a free, home try-on service – there are no upfront costs for ordering your Curate Box. Our personalized styling advice and shipping are complimentary, and you’ll only be charged for the individual pieces that you decide to keep (provided you send back anything you don't decide to keep within 7 days). You'll indicate a budget when ordering your Curate Box, so everything in it will be chosen to meet your preferences, whether you're feeling frugal or flash.
When will my credit card be charged?
When you order your box, we charge you a nominal, temporary fee ($1 maximum) just to make sure your card is valid – this is reimbursed within a day or two. You’ll be charged for the specific pieces you keep from your Curate Box when you let us know which items you're hanging onto (within or by the end of your 7-day trial period).
How long do I have to try out my Curate pieces before being charged?
From the day your Curate box arrives at your door, you have up to 7 working days to send us back anything you won't be keeping. Anything that hasn't made it back to us by day 8, we’ll assume you're keeping, and we’ll charge your card for the total value on the next business day.
Will you remind me how much time I have left?
Don't worry – we'll keep you on track. Your stylist will be in touch midway through your 7-day trial period to check in with you. They'll also reach out 2 days before the due date to make sure you're all set to keep or return your pieces. And we'll let you know as soon as we receive your Curate returns so you can relax and enjoy the pieces you couldn't bear to be parted from.
So what do I do if I change my mind about pieces I've kept from my Curate box?
No problem – just like any other AUrate purchase, you've got 30 days (from the day you received your Curate box) to return or exchange your pieces, no questions asked. Full details are right here.
Will I be charged if I decide not to keep anything?
Of course not (provided you return your items to us in original condition within 7 days). But we'd love to hear your feedback on your Curate box so we can make sure we tempt you better next time!
How soon can I get my hands on my Curate Box?
As soon as you've finished your Curate questionnaire, your stylist will get straight to work. Your Box will be carefully edited and shipped via priority mail within 1 or 2 business days. We'll send you tracking information so that you know exactly when to expect your delivery.
What if it goes missing on its way to me?
You're completely covered – we insure your Curate Box from the second it ships to the second it reaches your eager hands.
What's the cost of shipping and returns?
Shipping both ways is free.
Can you ship the Curate Box internationally?
Afraid not – right now Curate by AUrate is only available for domestic US orders (across all 50 states).
How do returns work?
Once your trial has started, we’ll email you a link to select the pieces you're keeping and sending back. You can schedule a pick-up for a time that's most convenient to you, either directly via FedEx or via a quick message to your stylist, who'll be happy to arrange the collection on your behalf. Alternatively, you can leave the package at a FedEx drop-off point using the pre-paid shipping label you'll receive with your Curate Box. Please make sure to include the original packaging that you received with your Box, and to send back everything that you're not planning to keep.
How long do I have to send back anything I don’t want to keep?
Returns are due back in the mail within 7 business days of receiving your Curate Box. For example, if your shipment arrives on Wednesday, August 1st, your return must be post-marked no later than Friday, August 10th (which is 7 business days later). If your returns aren’t postmarked within the 7-day timeframe, we will have assumed you’re keeping all items and will charge you the total value (but we’ll still double check with you, no worries).
Can I get more time with my pieces?
A pretty famous story claims that the world was made in 7 days, so we're confident that it's long enough to try on and fall in love with some beautiful jewelry. If, for some reason, you desperately need more time (NB: straight-up indecision doesn't count...), contact your stylist and we'll talk. But you should assume that 7 days is a hard stop unless we confirm otherwise.
Inside the Box
Will I receive pre-worn jewelry in my box?
Definitely not! All the jewelry is brand new, straight from our workshop in NYC to your home.
Are my Curate pieces covered by AUrate's lifetime guarantee?
Absolutely -- like any / all of our pieces, every item in your edit is guaranteed for life. Find out more here.
How do I find my ring size?
Use the complimentary ring-sizer in the box to find your perfect fit. We’ll happily exchange your ring for a different size as part of our 30-day exchange policy.
Can I request specific pieces in my Curate Box?
Let your stylist know in your questionnaire if you've already fallen hard for particular pieces. If we can include it in your box, we'll do our best, but if it's not in stock or not part of Curate, we'll use the intel to build our understanding of your personal style and select alternatives to suit you. Ideally, your stylist will help you discover new pieces you might not have considered, so we recommend giving them general ideas and preferences rather than exact pieces so you get the most from the experience.
Can my pieces be adjusted or customized?
We'll do our best to do whatever we can to make your piece perfect for you, from sizing to finishes to engraving. Talk to your stylist and we'll walk you through what's involved.
