This is for Maureen1125 who has been on the hunt for a pearl cluster necklace. I kept all of the picks below $100. I imagine that our comparison will always be to the J Crew & Target versions. However, be open to the ones with mixed ‘pearls,’ like the 1st two in the top row. You might remove some of the pearls you don’t like or reduce the cluster of another to get the final effect you want.
Claire’s Boutique – The good news is that this is a great bargain and it’s close to the J Crew & Target versions. The original retail is $16.50. I saw it in the clearance section for half off. The bad news is these photos are from 3/28, so the necklace may be long gone. I posted this find on Facebook, but not here on the blog. Sometimes I can drop some a quick blurb on there faster than I can here. Back to the Claire’s Boutique find…I don’t have any ticket information. You can click here to find a store near you. I would try to stop by if possible. The pearls were good on the necklace. Not sure the ribbon would last forever, but I think you could swap it out or wind an additional one through for insurance.
Facebook – You can friend me on Facebook as Gigi Ofca. Or become a fan of Gigi’s Gone Shopping. If you do the former, I can see any info you post but believe me I am rarely checking that out. If you do the latter, I don’t think I can see any of your personal information. I have to create separate posts for both pages and I’m getting better about duplicating the info on both. However, as I said, not all information I post there reaches the blog and vice versa.
