@jessyrez:  It’s okay, I wouldn’t travel that far for it though.  Do they have a website?

Yeah, it’s definitely all costume jewelry from my experience. Definitely a place to find cheap jewelry, but I wouldn’t drive that far to go to one

What are you going there for?  I wouldn’t buy any of your wedding stuff there.  It’s definitely cheap cheap.

But I love going there and digging around for every day stuff.

pass, the only reason I would really go there is if you need something in a specific hard-to-find color

I like it a lot. But I wouldn’t get wedding jewelry there. It’s a nice place to go if you want something in a specific color or cheap jewelry. I feel like it is an adult version of Claire’s.

@jessyrez:  Agreed. Its really cheapy in my opinion. Not worth the drive.

I spent a good amount of time browsing in one and came away with one pair of earrings.  They had lots of stuff that looked like it would be good for a night out, but kind of one-time-use stuff.  Cute, but cheap and super trendy. 

Would be ok to take a girlfriend and hit one and go out for lunch, but I wouldn’t make a special trip.  I have a lot better luck at Francesca’s Collection if you have one of those anywhere nearby.

Honestly I think you could find some wedding jewelry there as long as you’re not adamant on having real pearls or real diamonds or heirloom quality jewelry.  It’s cheap, but they have a really huge selection.  At the same time, there must be a closer store where you could find similar stuff, 20 miles is pretty far to go!

20 miles is a long drive? I live about 25 miles south of Atlanta, and going there is not very far at all, especially for a shopping trip! I’m not familiar with that store, but there are stores I would defnitely drive half an hour for just to see what they have. It’s not like you only have to go there…surely you can make a day of it, and look around at other places, have lunch, etc…
