{spotted: J Crew Fall jewelry}

Yesterday I ran over to J Crew to return the shoes that fit so poorly, and what did I spy??  Well, one of my first places to browse is the jewelry display case (I think it is more interesting because it is under lock and key and seems so inaccessible!!).  Well, there were 4 brand new pieces that were very Fall/Winter-looking and very sparkly!  In my excitement I forgot to discreetly pull out my phone and snap a picture, but I can point out which items they were.
NOTE:  The clothing seen here is not out yet--I am only posting these Fall preview pics to show which jewelry pieces I saw in the store.  :)
The first item that immediately caught my eye was what I thought was one extremely blingy necklace (but turned out to be 2 necklaces laid one inside the other).
One was the rectangular crystal necklace with the black ribbon on the right mannequin.  Loved it!:

And next to it was this round double row crystal necklace with black ribbon on the right mannequin:
There was also a rectangular crystal bracelet to match the first necklace above, but it was huge.  It must have been 7.5 or 8 inches because it could slide off of my wrist.  Boo-hoo.

Then there was a vintage-inspired bracelet that exactly matches the necklace on this mannequin below.  It had black and smoky-clear crystals and little brownish bows scattered all around.  This one also ran very large and neither could be adjusted.:

It was so surprising to see these already released!

The jewelry looks great, and I love most of the clothes too, but I am so not liking the huge fur (or faux fur?) sweater at the end. Maybe I'm just still in summer mode...which J. Crew should be in too, no?

Great new jewelry but I'm just not ready for fall ~ I'm not even on summer vacation yet!:)

I love the new vintage-inspired look in jewelry this fall. I also like the necklace with the black ribbon. Cute, cute, cute!

Um...we are still in the 50's here at night. Fall anything is unexceptable!! I really hope fur is not a new trend. So tacky. But the necklaces are fun. Just not until after Labor Day!

I love the new line of jewelry that jcrew has introduced. My favorites are the bow bracelet and the single layer crystal necklace. I plan to purchase them once they go on sale. Have a great weekend!!!!!

Thanks for the jewelry updates Petunia. I can't get my head around falljust yet but these sound/look like they'll be fun accessories.

Fall clothes before all the kids are out for summer. Okay JCrew...pushing it!!! Times maybe tough in retail but throwing clothing thats 3 months away minimum is silly.
Does that however mean great sales on summer???
Thanks for the Crew visit!!!

I saw the double crystal necklace too and LOVED it - until I picked it up and realized that it would make me go hunchback, it was THAT heavy!!!

Very pretty to look at though!

And, possibly an inspiration for future necklace purchases!

I was gonna say. Wow, it's still only June! No fall yet. Not yet. (says the girl who starts Christmas art projects in the middle of the summer)

I am glad I checked out your blog. I had the chandelier bracelet in my shopping cart and didn't even look at the size. Yikes, my wrists are under 6" around and this bracelet is 9" in length. The Crystal Symphony bracelet is on line now and it is only 7 and 1/4" in length. Thanks for the post.
