These are all so lovely! They're very elegant and yet edgy with the chunkiness to them. Definitely a great twist on a somewhat boring classic.

Definitely! I'm loving the J.Crew version ... naturally, the spendiest of the bunch. Sigh.

Love this look! I actually saw the ones from F21 in person and they are really cool looking - not cheap at all. I really liked them! Of course I am sure the JCrew option is gorgeous too...

I love 1, 2, and 4, but #3 definitely looks kinda "WTF?" to me.

I have one like this from forever 21, it is very heavy and quality looking, I have been wearing it to work with a button up! I like this trend, I often feel a little too country club in my classic single strand of pearls, this trend is a great alternative!

This is a really nice twist on a trend that may otherwise make you feel like a granny! Indeed, I would wear one.

A guy reading BB! That is so exciting. My BF is very fashionable, but doesn't know what type of blogs to read. I talk about yours a lot! Anyway this look is awesome and of course I will only try the F21 version. So inexpensive to be fashionable!
