J Crew - bubble necklace

J Crew's bubble necklace (92687, $150) currently comes in modern red is $89.99 in-store as of 1/5. In-store additional 40% was still going yesterday, Mon 1/9. My guess is it will continue thru this week. The bubble necklace is also available in papaya, black and turquoise.

This isn't an official outfit. I'm just trying the necklace on. However, I would include this as a wearable option just like this, so a happy accident. I also have the necklace in grey from a couple years ago. The size and materials won't strike everyone's fancy, but it's a beautiful piece. Check out the bubble...

Look! J Crew's pluma pendant on the left (2010, sold out). Sabine pendant ($28) on the right, available at Piperlime. It has a matching bracelet. I don't know if I'd wear them at the same time. The bracelet is more moolah, $38. I liked the pluma pendant after it sold out, unfortunately. It sometimes pops back in a Factory version, but I was unwilling to chance it. There's no Factory easy to drive to near me and I wouldn't want to eat return shipping. Piperlime has free shipping both ways and if you're a Gap family cardholder you can save 10% today with TUESDAYS. The pluma has that nice filigree flair, but the Piperlime option is in the same vein.

And a brand new to Piperlime, Cassie by Schutz($150) - Cute!

  1. I love the bubble necklace but I have no business buying another bauble with 6 drawers of necklaces. I know. I'll be the next Hoarders episode.

    P.S. But if I was going to get it, I would pick red!

  2. just like eleanor i have plenty of neclaces from the crew.i would still love to have one of the bubble neclaces preferably in the modern red.
    great combination with the striped top!

  3. I really like the outfit lady! The necklace is perfect!

  4. Hey Gigi, I *get* this necklace.. it's just a bit murch for me. Cute on you, though! :-)

  5. I love the red with the stripes, super cute outfit!! Thanks for the link love!

  6. I have the bubble from way back in black, turquoise and papaya. I wear the black a ton, and just yesterday wore the turquoise to brighten up a grey dress. It's a statement necklace for sure. The amount I've worn mine, they are literally pennies per wear by now.

    I really like the red with the stripes! Happy accident indeed.

  7. Hey Gigi!
    I just realized that JCrew offers 1.5% cash back through Ebates now. Do you remember if that is how it always was before the holiday months? Seems low... not that it will stop me or anything...

  8. Ah, love your outfit. You look so cute.


  9. Gigi-Love the Bubble. Do you know if it on sale in stores in all colors or just black and red? I love the red and turquoise.

  10. The bubble is a true statement necklace, isn't it Gigi? Even after all this time, I'm still on the fence about getting one myself though and I do love it whenever I see it on others.

    The pluma is one of my favorites - I think you'd really like it, so keep checking for pop-backs. The factory version looks identical to the original in the close-up pictures, so it may be a safe buy.

    The Pipelime look alikes are a great find too!

  11. I have always loved that necklace but the color is my favorite so far! I really think you lucked out on that outfit because I totally love it!

  12. I love the necklace. Esp in red. It looks great with the shirt you have on.

  13. I just bought an ebay knockoff of this necklace for $20 lol...it hasn't come yet, so we will see how good/bad the quality is!

  14. I am in the minority here since I am not a fan of this necklace.

    Ebates @ J Crew was 4% and higher before the holidays.

  15. Thanks for the tip on the in-store price of this necklace, Gigi! I have been lusting after it and the extra 40% might make the price a little more palatable to me.

  16. Gigi - I contacted a PS in the stores about this and hope I am able to take advantage. Thanks so much for posting this!

  17. I have the soft violet from two year ago and wear it very rarely (I wear my turquoise H&M knockoff more). Maybe I should sell it and get the black one, it is so difficult to find a nice black necklace. Do you know if the black is on sale as well?

  18. Thanks for linking to my blog! I am completely obsessed with the bubble necklace. Send help! ;)
