We made our nearly weekly joint — we mean jaunt — to the great TJ Maxx in Paramus, N.J., yesterday and found a treasure trove in the jewelry department.
That store had a wide variety of handcrafted woven sterling silver jewelry, bracelets and earrings, made in Bali. The price range was $100 to $250 on the bracelets, $50 on the earrings.
The pieces looked just like the John Hardy bracelets that Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus are selling right now at double, triple and four times the price as the ones in TJ Maxx. Like Hardy, the TJ Maxx Bali bracelets have dashes of 18 carat gold on them, and some had small diamonds (although not of very good quality).
If you only wear designer jewelry, we get that. But if you are not fussy, or don’t mind mixing non-designer stuff with your John Hardy or Lagos pieces, then check out your TJ Maxx for this Bali jewelry.
