J.Crew's ubiquitous bubble necklace is $150 at jcrew.com. It's been around for years and seems to get more popular each season, especially with the recent surge towards bright colors in the fashion world. It might feel played out to some but I think it's a classic.
I know many of you own this necklace or the dupe and have featured it on your blogs (looking at you, TAGG
!), but this look for less is worth repeating. Here at TBB, I've been hunting for this particular "look for less" design
since 2009! And it has come to my attention that not everyone is aware that eBay now sells the best knockoffs of this popular style (3 readers asked me this question in the past week).
Just head to eBay.com and search for "JCrew Bubble Necklace
." The average starting price is around $15.
You can also find bubble necklace look-a-likes on Etsy.com (Blue Bird
is stocked with bubble necklaces) as well as a few other jewelry boutiques such as Mimi's The Look for Less
(similar, smaller style), and Pop of Chic
(similar, smaller style).
If you know of another place to score a bubble necklace copy for less, let us know in the comments. Also if you've purchased a dupe on eBay, I'd love to know what you paid, if you can recommend a specific seller, and if the quality was good - in the market for one myself! (I have two quasi-bubble necklaces but didn't look at the measurements and they turned out to be much smaller than the actual J.Crew style.)
