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.
