The Look for Less: J.Crew Factory Bubble Necklace

Thanks to an alert reader, I discovered J.Crew offers a version of their famous bubble necklace at their outlet store locations as well as online at This "Factory Resin Droplet Necklace" comes in tangerine, red, cobalt or neon pink for $61.50 (down from $88). It measure 23 3/4", so it's pretty big.

Now, Charlotte Russe has a "mini" bubble necklace option for $12.99 in tangerine, aqua or black. NOTE: This necklace only measures 14" so it's significantly smaller. But both are cute! Click either image for details.

great necklace

I recommend, as a cheaper alternative, eBay. If you type in "bubble bib" or "bubble necklace" replica necklaces are available. I have four--they've held up very well. They take 2-3 weeks since they're shipped from China. Cost: $10-15

I am in the same boat. I have almost bought one several times. By the time I finally pull the trigger they will be out of style :-)

You could get these necklaces for around 20.00 on - just type in bib or bubble necklace. I think these were trendy over the summer but have phased out. Either way, buying them from Etsy supports local business owners vs. ebay.

Love the bubble necklace! I too like Etsy for them especially since if you contact the shop owner you can usually get a nice custom colored piece.

If anyone's wondering which specific ebay or etsy sellers to contact, there's some great feedback from readers on this post too:
