J Crew: Midnight Floral Necklace

I haven’t even shared my picks from the last J Crew roll-out and another, with lots and lots of Gingham, has arrived today. The only item I ordered from the last roll-out was the Midnight Floral Necklace. It looked so pretty online I knew I had to see it in person. I waited for a promo code before ordering.


The stones are stunning in Navy Blue and the additional clusters of flowers and cascading stones add to the statement style of this necklace. It will go with everything adding a little more oomph to your outfit.


But, I have to agree with the 3-star review it received. The quality is lacking. I couldn’t put my finger on it until I wore a Factory necklace I have. The “noise” of this necklace sounds cheap and plastic, a little like Factory jewelry. The brass sounds hollow, or maybe not even brass at all. It is a little lighter than I expected, probably due to the lesser quality materials used.


It’s so disappointing and I’m on the fence about keeping it. I would love to but knowing the materials sound like they were skimped on, even if only to my ears, will bother me when I wear it. It’s certainly a piece you could find at Bauble Bar for less than $100. I’d probably rather buy an ebay or Etsy knock-off knowing I am getting what I paid for. This is not worth the $150 or the 25% off I used.

There are also matching earrings. These are currently 25% off with promo code SHOPNOW. I don’t wear earrings and if they sound like the necklace I know I’ll get annoyed hearing the cheapness so close to my ears.

Has anyone tried this necklace? Please tell me what you think of it.

    That’s too bad about that necklace — I haven’t tried it but it appears quite lovely, at least at first glance. Know what you mean about detecting some sort of ‘cheap’ quality to it and how that knowledge would bug me each time I wore it! Grrrr.

    Agree on your feedback. This necklace was a pass for me. I bought it with the tiered promo so it was less than $90. But when I received it I was disappointed. Quality was definitely lacking & I missed the asymmetrical design detail. I returned it; not sure I would buy this even on super sale. Navy is hard to find, but I’ll keep looking.

    They lost me w/the asymmetrical style. The stones look pretty. Good bad the quality isn’t there.
