Right now the J Crew Bubble Necklace is popping up everywhere on fashion blogs. This statement necklace screams vintage, but at the same time still yields a modern clean flare. The necklace comes in a variety of colors which currently include; navy, pink, aqua, white, and Kelly green. Cost is $150 for the 18 inch piece (2 inch extender option) and their online site boasts that is is made with an 18 kt. gold electroplated brass- sounds fancy, huh?
With a quick search on Ebay, I saw over 600 necklaces- many of which were under $20 (including shipping)....are they in fact actual J Crew?? Well no one can be sure, but you definitely can get the look for a lot less. They also have more colors such as coral and yellow.
Etsy also has a good selection of the style. Also a good variety of colors and also with slight variations, such as a small piece (with less rows of drops) and some with ribbon instead of chain.
If you are really crafty, there are also online tutorials on how to make your own bib necklace. I saw one here and also here. Both sites disclaim that this is not a DIY project for the beginner level!
Here are some ways to rock this a-mazing necklace:
As you can see, this necklace can really spice up an outfit- whether it is a dress, blouse, or even a t-shirt.
Happy Shopping :)
