Best Affordable Jewelry Pieces
What to look for when shopping affordable jewelry
Quality is of the utmost importance here. Many brands are utilizing materials that are affordable but still durable and can last for years with proper care. Take it from these editors’ experience with pieces that have failed to last the season they’re bought for, there are a few tricks of the trade. Look for gold vermeil, for example, as a less expensive (but still great-looking) alternative to solid gold. For those looking for the look of diamonds but are shying away from the costume jewelry look of crystals may we suggest lab-grown diamonds. The lab-grown stones can be a great alternative to mined diamonds with their accessible price point. Below, shop our edit of the best affordable jewelry pieces under $300.
