Bridesmaids Jewelry: Forever 21?

For budget brides looking for cheap bridesmaids jewelry options, I'd like to give a shout out to the jewelry section of Forever 21.
Now, we all know Forever 21 is one of those stores...really trendy and great for teens and early 20-somethings...but not the place to shop when looking for high quality pieces that will last and last.
However, the Forever 21 jewelry and accesories departments could be a choice for brides looking to buy fashionable jewelry for many bridesmaids that would only need to last a day--let's say a wedding day!
I've bought my fair share of jewelry from Forever 21. At least one item--a pair of earrings-- broke before I could even get them home.
But the majority of jewelry I've purchased from the store--bracelets and earrings--have actually lasted.
I think this is a good place to at least look for bridesmaid's jewelry if you're on a budget. What do you think? Yay or nay?
A few of my favorite recent finds from All under 8 bucks.
Rhinestone Bracelet: $7.80
Antique Floral Cuff: $5.80
Antique Filigree Cuff: $4.80
Chandelier Jewel Earrings: $3.80

For brides looking to spend a little more on bridesmaids jewelry of better quality, here are a few good web stores:
Amy's Bridal Accessories
Fashion Jewelry for Everyone
Everything Angelic
Crystal Classics
1928 Jewelry
Perfect Details

Happy Wednesday!

I love the first bracelet. Forever 21 is wonderful. The stuff I've gotten there does last but most of the stuff isn't trendy anymore by then.
