There was a little bit of concern floating around after my post about dressing up with jewelry – some of the more gorgeous items that I shared with you were a bit… pricey?… and a few people expressed their concern that they couldn’t do justice to dressing up unless they won the lottery first.
But lower-priced jewelry exists, and can be an extremely good thing to search out, for a number of reasons.
- If you’re test-driving a new style or type of jewelry, and it doesn’t make sense to spend a fortune on something that you’re not sure you’ll love.
- If you’re buying jewelry to wear with just one specific garment or outfit, and you know that you aren’t going to want to keep the piece forever,
- or, if you’re going to be taking your jewelry someplace where security is iffy, and you DO want jewelry, but DON’T want to have to make an insurance claim.
