Finding exclusive jewelry without breaking the bank

jewelry-ringYou may be looking for pieces of jewelry that you want to add to your precious collection but you do not want to use up your retirement money for them. In case you do not have the money for the big diamonds, you can still get amazing statement pieces or a beautiful accessory that you can use everyday. Here are some tips to help you those wonderful pieces of jewelry:

Think of other brands

As much as we want to fancy a small box from Tiffany & Co., buying from this store is paying about 80% more because of the brand. Try to balance how you spend your money and how you want to find the nice piece of jewelry. Checkout local brands and shops that can offer high quality at more affordable prices.

Go for your birthstone

If you want a unique piece of jewelry, diamonds are not just the only answers. You can go for birthstones like peridot, tanzanite, or garnet. You can still use diamonds as accents to your statement piece. These stones are more affordable than the bigger diamonds.

Pearls

Diamonds maybe forever but another choice is to use pearls for your exclusive jewelry pieces. Aside from being more affordable, they are also very elegant. You can also look for cultured pearls which are way cheaper than the natural pearls. Avoid pearls with cloudy surfaces since with pearls, your number one gauge for quality is its luster.

Alter old pieces

You can take older pieces of jewelry and upgrade them. You can reset the stones of your silver or gold rings to platinum for example. This is still cost effective since you already have the elements for the jewelry you want to make. You just need to pay for the labor.

M. Khordipour Enterprises Jewelry — Breathtakingly Beautiful!

M. Khordipour EnterprisesI am one of those people that covet – I know that it is a sin but I have to say that everything I see that is done by M. Khordipour Enterprises I covet.  Not only does this particular brand look incredible on your finger but just seeing it in the store in NYC is enough for me … besides actually touching the jewelry.

What I love about anything done by M. Khordipour Enterprises is the fact that they take such care with their pieces and that they truly know exactly what they are doing.  Not only does every piece that comes out of the back room beautiful but it is done up in such a way that makes you want it.

Take this unique and different aquamarine/diamond ring.  Not only is it beautiful but it is definitely a left-hand ring that can be worn with anything!
