Real vs. Steal – J.Crew Classic Pavé Link Bracelet

by Irina on February 18, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 18, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

I’m currently trying to build/extend my jewelry collection which is a rather tough task since I just can’t get my mind used to spending hundreds of dollars on costume jewelry. For example, I really adore this pavé link bracelet by J.Crew, but $125 seems like a lot for a bit of shiny base metal, don’t you agree? That’s why I’ve been on the hunt for something more budget-friendly with a similar design…

bebe Chainlink & Crystal Bracelet

… And I made a great find at bebe. Their Chainlink & Crystal Bracelet isn’t a 100% match because it has only a few pavé’d links but for a 1/4 of the J.Crew price you’ll get the same look without breaking the bank.
