Claires is the absolute cheapest place to pick up costume jewelry, but the jewelry itself is also very cheap. It breaks and tarnishes very easily. Amazingly though, you can often find this stuff on the "10 for $5" table. For a bracelet you might only wear a few times, 50 cents is a great price! Stick to wooden and plastic jewelrys here though. If you try to go gold, silver or diamond, it's obviously fake and very ugly!
