{J Crew SUMMER jewelry release!}

Okay...."Summer"...that sounds better now!  Evidently these are in the new J Crew Summer catalog (not Fall).
When I saw them in the display case, I thought it was ONE necklace.  And I loved it.  Haha.
Here they are separated--
The tiered crystal libretto necklace:
The crystal symphony necklace:

I tried to photograph how stunning this necklace is IRL, but the camera would not quite cooperate.  It is mesmerizing:

I have no idea where I will be wearing these beauties, but I guess I'll be very sparkly wherever I go!  And it is always nice to feel like a princess, no??   ;-)

I love that J. Crew uses fine materials like Crystal instead of the traditional cubic zirconia or other nonsense for their sparkle, it adds some shine without the cheapness (not that I have anything against CZ, but in that amount, you need something more substantial).

They are beautiful! And I have found that nothing makes a boring day of errands better than beautiful jewelry!

Did you buy all three?????

Lovely necklace. They do use multiples in a lot of their pics, don't they? I have seen examples of this several times! I love the necklace!

sparrowsandsparkles said...

Brie said...

I bought the Scattered glass necklace a few weeks ago, and I really adore it.... have worn it several times already. It goes with just about anything, because of the colors of the beads. :-)

Stephanie said...

Oh how pretty! I love being sparkley!!

Rachael said...

they look amazing

Emily said...

I heart those necklaces! So pretty. I must take a look at my B&M and see if they have them in stock.

Danielle said...

Love these necklaces. So pretty :)

JNJ said...

So glad you posted this! I was really hoping one our JCAs would purchase and post these lovelies today. I saw those same two (clear libretto & symphony) last night in the display case and they layered them the exact same way. I plan to get the libretto for sure but they have two colors and also the identical 'Garden' one with olive/clear crystals and I can't decide which ones to get. Two librettos (blossom & olive), or one libretto (clear) with the symphony necklace...hmmm. I also have the scattered glass necklace in my online cart but want to see this IRL first.

BTW - Are the necklaces heavy at all? I didn't get the chance to try it on at the b&m yet.

HeidiG said...

Too many pretty baubles there now!! Love them. Thanks for posting? Like JNJ asked, can you tell us how heavy they are? thanks!

Petunia said...

They have a little weight to them, but I don't think people will be complaining that they are too heavy. They definitely feel substantial, but in a good way! I pulled out my little eBay scale & the Libretto is 5 oz and the Symphony is 3 oz if you'd like to compare to a piece you already own. :)

You are too sweet to weigh it for us! (I felt like my crystal snowball necklace was a bit heavy). Thank you for doing that and for all the great pics you shared with us. I'm sure these lovelies will work beautifully with the rest of your wardrobe. I think this will glam up a simple dress beautifully, convert a work pantsuit into insta-chic dinner attire or look luxe peaking out from under a blouse.

Preppy Sue said...

Very cool, I love that you can separate them!

HeidiG said...

Thanks for the weight info - very helpful!!

JNJ said...

Petunia - I just bought the libretto and it is gorgeous IRL! Even my fiance said so. :) And you're right it feels substantial in a good way. I only wish they designed it so that it was fully reversible rather than one-sided. May still have to order the olive or blossom version soon.

Petunia said...

JNJ ~~ Isn't it just stunning? I did not think that I would like it so much until I tried it on. I cannot get the camera to capture how pretty it really is. I'd love to see it in the Blossom color!

BLC :o said...

Oh P, gorgeous!!!! To answer your question about the turq purse, it is by Big Buddha and I believe called "Mediterranean." It was a birthday present from Ale's mom, so only a few months old. You should be able to find it! I looove it (and can even carry my laptop in it!). Xoxo-BLC

PS: And, it comes in many fabulous colors!! :)

Jill said...

Love your new necklace~ so fancy.

Domestic Diva said...

It looks so smashing on you! I just saw them in my catalog last night. Super swell!!
Have a fabulous day!!!

Belle said...

Gorgeous! I'm a bit of a glitzy girl so I like sparkle. Love them all!
Have a great day!

Hi again lovebug! Guess what!? You won my 200th post giveaway- the LP scarf!!! Congratulations!!! Xoxo-BLC

midnight macaroons said...

That's a fantastic necklace. I love how you can mismatch them or have one big chunky necklace. I want one!!! I love how something so simple can truly dress up any outfit. Great find, Petunia.

Shannon said...

I love the libretto necklace, might have to break down and buy that one.
Thanks for the pics!

Muffy said...

oh wow! I REALLY like that!

Peace.Love. Lipgloss. said...

You're right- they look amazing all together- a girl can never have enough sparkle in her life!

gigiofca said...

They look so good! Together and separate. I think you can wear these for a long time. I didn't realize there were other colors in the libretto. Must investigate.
