Do you like the jewelry trend of layered necklaces, long necklaces, or clustered pearls or beads?
  I do like it on the models, but a lot of the pieces that I see at J Crew etc. are just too big and chunky for me.  Also, I prefer to wear my real jewelry most of the time, so when it comes to costume jewelry I do not want to invest a lot of money--especially if it is trendy.
I found two necklaces today that I really like.  I think they will look cute over a casual tee shirt or under a dressier jacket.  I found them at a very surprising place--American Eagle!  I like them more than many of the pieces that I have seen lately because the metal is not that shiny gold or overly shiny silver.  And the prices were unbelievable!!!

The one above was on promotion at 50% off.  I spent a whopping $7.75 on it!
It has just the right amount and size of pearls--I don't feel like Barbara Bush or a grandma with it on.


This double strand long necklace was full price at $15.50.  It reminds me (okay--just a little bit) of a Chanel costume jewelry necklace that I am currently drooling over which costs $1295.  Haha!


Both pieces together for length comparison.

I love JCrew and the rest of it..., you can see...

but HOW much was this necklace??? I'm sorry, but there must have been some sort of typo.

Hmm. Sure.

I like the second one.

Feel free to stop on by my blog, though I'm new to the whole scene.

Pretty! I reall like the one on the right. I tend to have a few select pieces of good jewelry that I wear all of the time and then throw in a little bit of trendy and inexpensive stuff, especially chunky necklaces like coral.

They are both pretty and at that price, they're perfect! :)
