J Crew - grand stone bracelet

J Crew's grand stone bracelet (48313, $98) is currently on promo online for $78. It was still regular price in the store, as of last week (1/17). The color is called frosted aqua. 



I thought this would look good with a J Crew black cami, like the Natasha or something. I tried it on in-store and didn't get the feeling. However, I always feel pressured when the SA is standing there waiting to see if I'm buying or she's returning the jewelry to the case.I passed in-store and after debating and debating, convinced myself to order it on the last 30% promo.

In certain light, the dark stones register as very dark.

 

My wrist measure 6.5" where the bracelet is sitting. There was about 1/2 - 1/2" slack in between the bracelet and my wrist. 




The Feeling
 I like the mint stones. That's a lil different to mix in with the darker shades.  I like the shapes of all the stones individually and what they create together. I didn't like how far apart the three stones are from each other, although that's probably a necessity so the bracelet can curve around the wrist. While I appreciate that the rusty brass makes you think this bracelet would be found in the Goonie's treasure chest, I didn't like it. It was too dull & splotchy in contrast to the clean colors of the stones. I get the contrast, but this wasn't a keeper for me. Thumb to the side.




GET40 brings the bracelet down to $48.60 before tax. The promo is good thru Tue, 1/29.

  1. I was wondering about this one GiGi (I never seen it in store). I like the greens but it would probably be too big for my wrist so I am going to pass. Have you seen/tried the necklace?

    1. Hi Ema. It will probably be too big for your wrist. I don't even remember if I saw the necklace in-store or not. You can see it on Rynetta.

  2. I've seen this in store, but have never been tempted by it. The feeling will come around for something else soon enough, right? :)

  3. I've waffled on this and ended up passing on it, despite the promo price. Thanks for the IRL pics!

    1. Caroline - I know I'd be keeping because of prices, so it went back.

  4. Wow, that is one big bracelet. That seems to be true for all of JC's bracelets lately. Unfortunately the larger sized don't work for me. The stones are lovely, though. I like the mix of colors.

    1. maryeb - That's true. A lot of the bracelets are pretty big right now. I generally like that, though.

  5. This is one I kept wanting to love (all the colors I wanted!), but kept not loving. You totally nailed it on the Goonies- ha!
