Sparkle Savvy

Jewelry can be a great way to add pizazz and sparkle to any outfit; it can also be expensive. Now, I love J.Crew as much as the next girl, but I have no interest in paying $100 or more for costume jewelry. Maybe I'm cheap, but I like to think of myself as savvy.

I've scoured the pages of the J.Crew website looking for my favorite fall jewelry pieces, and then I've searched other websites to find similar styles. Here is what I came up with; let me know what you think! J.Crew piece is first, then the similar piece follows.

Shiny Resin Necklace $108
Liz Claiborne Long Link Necklace $35

Classic Link Necklace $165

Textured and Hammered Circle Design Gold Tone Necklace $29.99
Bubble Necklace $150
Pink Bubble Necklace $12.80
Classic Enamel Link Bracelet $78
Anne Klein Union Square Enamel Link Bracelet $22.80
Wild Side Wide Bangle $68
Snake Textured Skinny Hinged Bangle $12.99
Bubble Earrings $45
Ombre Drop Earrings $19.90
Bow Earrings $68
Marilyn Monroe Bow Earrings $29.64

    1. Thanks for following. I checked out your blog and I think it's great. I followed along!

  2. I love this! I am the exato same way...I can't justify spending the cash on costume jewelry.

    The bubble necklace was a piece I wanted so badly but just refused to pay that kind of money for. Luckily, there are quite a few convincing replicas (mine came from China haha). You did a great job finding some comparable pieces!

    1. I haven't gotten the bubble necklace yet, but I think I'm going to get a grey one for fall/winter!

  3. I added you from the Glossy Blonde giveaway! :)
