{J Crew online-only jewelry}

There were three items that I just had to see in person, so I went ahead and ordered them online. They are the Bubble Necklace in soft violet, the Duchess Stone Necklace in soft pumpkin, and the Duchess Stone Bracelet to match.
I was hoping the Bubble necklace would be produced in pink, and here it is. The necklace itself is more of a pink and the small beads hanging off of it are a light violet. It was hard to capture the color through a photograph (it turned a bit yellowish in my 2nd pic). The colors are more accurate in my first photo on the counter below. It is stunning and just too pretty.

The Duchess Stone necklace below did not thrill me as I had hoped. What do you think? I thought the brown would be prettier than the peachy/pink color that arrived in stores, but now I am not so sure.
I tried on the Majesty necklace in black in the store and was surprised that I liked it. Maybe even more so than the Duchess necklace! It looks huge, but was quite cute.

What do you think about these pieces?

the bubble necklace is my favorite! i HAVE to have it!

nissanese said...

uhm i think the Duchess Stone necklace fits you just right! and the color isn't orange at all like "pumpkin." LOVE that necklace! but i would probably skip the bracelet. the pink bubbles are pretty but a little on the heavy and drape-low side...almost as if those beads will keep on bouncing/hitting your chests as you walk in heels...

I think they are all great- I am not a jewelry/accesory person- and sometimes wish I were...but I just never have the afterthought to put something around my neck or wrists as I leave the house! how do I change that? so many pretty things!

Kathryn said...

The Bubble Necklace is gorgeous!! I was planning on ordering the Duchess Stone necklace in Soft Pumpkin. It does look different, but it's still beautiful! Good choices! :)

kb said...

Not so crazy about the others, but I love the bubble necklace!

All your pieces are gorgeous! Great taste!

Heather said...

I like both the bubble one and the duchess one. Very nice!

Kristin said...

I am totally drooling over the bubble necklace. SO gorg!

bug pin said...

I have to agree with nissanese--I think the bubble hangs low and overwhelms your frame. BUT I cannot disagree that it (they) are beautiful.

Patina said...

oh my goodness. i'm in love with the bubble necklace. thanks for posting IRL pics.

Irwin Esq said...

I love the bubble necklace!! And I like the black better than the brown :)

Petunia said...

Yes, I also think that the Bubble necklace overwhelms my frame! But I don't want to return it! I know that's ridiculous. I'll think about it for a while.
The "soft pumpkin" is definitely NOT pumpkin. It is totally brown. I just don't like it on me. I've already got it packed up in it's box ready to go back.

I'm not a huge fan of gold in my jewelry, but I like the look of that last one with the black stones. I tend to go small with jewelry though.

A Bigger Closet said...

I think both necklaces are very pretty on you. My fav is the Duchess. I'm planning to try that too. Thanks for posting on these Petunia. :)

Zoë Moët said...

I think they are fantabulous. The bubble necklace is the best, but I love the others too. And I think the brown will be great for fall!

Cary said...

The bubble necklace is definitely a keeper- it is gorgeous!

I agree with you on the other, okay, but not fantastic. I looked at it online, but was not really impressed. However, the black one is very pretty.

They have a crystal lattice necklace (20148) and matching bracelet (20278) that look so gorgeous. I may get just the bracelet. Also, you might like this, too...I just bought the small marmalade bracelet at Kate Spade and I love it - very delicate looking IRL:
