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.

Forget Bra Straps — Use Pearls!

elitepearlbrastrapPearls have long been a staple of jewelry fashion.  A strand of pearls around the throat is a perfect accent for the famed little black dress.  Pearl earrings can add a touch of class and elegance to any outfit you can even think of putting together.  Even pearl rings and bracelets have their place as the perfect accessories.  But did you know there are other places to wear pearls?  Such as … over your shoulders.

It is summer — of course. Lots of ladies are wearing things like sundresses and off the shoulder tops, halters, and things of that nature — which does pose a problem: exposed bra straps.

However, Margarita Couture can fix that, with their Elite Pearl Straps, which go for only about thirty five dollars a pair. They are made of gorgeous freshwater pearls and they are completely adjustable. All you have to do is replace the straps on your convertible bra with these straps, and you have instant jewelry!

From Engagement Ring to Divorce Diamond

pejayb5605It has happened to all of us.  An ex boyfriend once bought us a promise ring which we can understandably no longer bring ourselves to wear.  Perhaps an engagement went downhill and you, of course, kept the ring, even though it is now languishing in the back of your drawer, unworn but not quite forgotten.  Worse yet, perhaps you have gone through the devastation that is a divorce, and have no idea what to do with the rings you once wore with pride.  You cannot bear to get rid of these rings, but neither do you want to wear them.  It seems like such a waste of diamonds and other precious stones though, does it not?  Until quite recently, your only real choices were to live with it or pawn them — and pawning is such a tough thing to do.  I mean, we are talking about diamonds here!

Fortunately, PeJay Creations has the answer to that problem.  Think about getting your old promise ring, engagement ring, or wedding ring into a divorce diamond.  It can become a hinged bracelet for some surprisingly affordable prices.
