It may be muggy and gross outside today, but Alexis Bittar's sample sale is full of bright and bold jewelry. We stopped by this afternoon to find costume jewelry priced between $30 and $350, along with a small selection of fine jewelry that's priced as marked.

You'll find bracelets first, starting at $30 for thin and simple lucite bangles, $65 for bevel-embellished pieces, and $75 for large lucite styles. In the next section are $95 bracelet options, then another are for bracelets priced between $150 and $225—mostly ornate styles or large cuffs.

The cheapest necklaces are at the back, ranging from $50 to $75, with other pieces priced at $95, $150—$175, and the most expensive ones on a separate table for $200 to $350. Earrings have a similar split, starting at a table full of $30—$75 options, a $95 section, and a small section for $150—$200 earrings.

If you're looking for a statement piece—and you're not afraid of a good animal accent—we spotted a leopard hinged bracelet for $150 and a large gold cuff with a fox detail for $175. There are also long fox pendant necklaces for $95, and lucite snake pendants for $150. For something more simple, check out the $50 circle lucite pendant necklaces, or $30 bright turquoise lucite rings. If you love cuffs, there are stacked gold cuffs for $75, rose gold large cuffs for $75, and plenty of smaller designs for $50.

The fine jewelry section is priced as marked, and everything is 18K gold or sterling silver with semi-precious and precious stones. We liked a simple gold necklace with a circle of gemstones for a very casual $897, and a small sterling silver ring with small pink precious stones for $297. For the highest end of the higher end, we noted a large gold ring with gemstones for $2,497 and a gold chain link bracelet marked at $4,247 (you know, if you feel the urge to skip out on your rent check this month).

Overall, you're going to find that the most covetable items fall between $75 and $150, and you'll want to get there early if you're looking to snag anything cheaper than that. Stop in through 8pm tonight or any other day this week—check out the Dealfeed below for hours.
