The J.Crew Bubble Necklace


After weeks of silent anticipation, I finally received my J.Crew Bubble Necklace in the mail!  Dance of joy and hoots 'n hollers arise!

I have been coveting this necklace from afar for many months only to be completely thwacked across the head when I looked up the price: one-hundred and seventy-four dollars

'That can't be right,' I thought to myself.

And then, 'But so many bloggers have this necklace...'

'...how can they afford this necklace? ....and in multiple colours?!'

Well my friends, enter eBay.  A great tip shared to me by Mara and I was on my way to not one, but two J.Crew Bubble Necklaces.  I used seller Bisource who are based out of China.  The shipping took forever (about five weeks to Canada) but the customer service was great, speedy and they provided a tracking number, which was nice.  The only problem was trying to decide which colours to get!  I  might have to purchase one or two more (pink/peach and white perhaps?  Or maybe black...) in the future.

Happy shopping!

Ohh! I have been wanting this necklace but could never afford it. What is the quality like of the necklace from China?

I know I can't bring myself to spending that kind of money on fashion jewellry either. I just ordered a different JCrew necklace and bracelet dupe from ebay too. I used the seller "sinoshopping" and the shipping only took about 3 weeks, I think.

I read another blogger who got almost the same exact necklace but in turqouise and she found it at H&M.

I also have a knockoff version. $150+ is way too much for a piece of costume jewelry but who can resist a good knockoff? ;)

There's also an Etsy shop that makes them for 1/3 of the price of the J. Crew ones! I just discovered it the other day! Here's the link:
