Every woman wants to dazzle in good jewelry. Sadly however, this is not exactly the easiest thing to do considering how expensive beautiful pieces are. Most cheap pieces of jewelry tend to lose their sparkle in a short time and many of them not only fade but they rust as well. The general rule when it comes to jewelry is the more expensive, the better. So what is a lady to do if she does not want to break her bank simply to look good?
Luckily for you there are some few things you can do to get beautiful pieces of jewelry without having to go bankrupt. The first and simplest thing you can do is to shop around before you buy. If you have a big event coming up and you know you will need to look your best then you should start your jewelry shopping way in advance. Online is a good place to start though you can also visit the shops directly. With a little bit of digging you should be able to find a good discount that will help you save a lot.
The next thing you can do is consider jewelry that is coated instead of the real thing. It is very likely that no one will notice the difference between a gold coated necklace and one made of real gold, yet you will save a whole lot of money by going for the former option. If you find a really good coated piece of jewelry, it will retain the sparkle that real jewelry does for a long time.
You can also consider reducing the size of the jewel on the pendant or ring if you feel the piece you covet is too expensive. The truth is, as long as the stone is cut beautifully, the size does not really matter. All you want is for the stone to catch light and draw attention to itself, and a well cut stone no matter how small will do this perfectly. You could even opt to have a pendant of crushed stone if you want the pendant to cover a larger surface. It will still do the trick nicely.
The next time you are stressing on how you will make an impression at an event with your jewelry on a shoe string budget, remember these tips, they will really come in handy!
