As much as I love J. Crew’s bubble necklace, the quality can sometimes be lacking. I have only had the black version of this necklace for a few months and one of the stones popped out the day I ran around town in this outfit. It’s a good thing the stone fell out in the car because I probably would not have been able to recover it otherwise.

The bubble necklace is perhaps J. Crew’s most popular accessory to date with hundreds of retailers selling like items. I have always been curious about the quality of necklaces manufactured or sold by other retailers so if you’ve ordered from other sellers, please share your experience with me.
