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!

Engagement Rings? Royal Asscher Has You Covered!

Royal Asscher Eclipse Diamond Engagement RingLet’s have a chat about some of the latest things about the Royal Asscher family – it has been quite a while since I have done a blog about what they are doing right?  Well, I have to say that they are up to nothing but good and as always, they come to impress.

Their Eclipse collection is no different at all and this is just one engagement ring from that collection.  I love the fact that this particular ring not only has a beautifully cut diamond in the middle, but the ring itself is thicker and the circles of diamonds are very attractive.

The Royal Asscher Eclipse collection is something that I took a deep look at every single piece and I have found that they are all beautifully done and once again, the Royal Asscher is a family that I would be very proud to have on my finger!

Say It With A Ruby!

Ruby RingsJewelry is more than just the look of it – when you wear a piece of jewelry, there is something that goes along with it … status.  That is very true when you wear a ruby.  Not many people can pull a ruby off, but there are some of them that can and personally, I think that real rubies are absolutely beautiful.  The Indian population is known for their use of rubies – whether it is on their foreheads or on their toes, rubies are very apparent and definitely part of the culture.

However, that does not mean that you can not wear them either.  Actually, ruby engagement rings are becoming increasing popular and I think that is beautiful!  I love – love, love red gemstones and rubies are definitely my favorite!  Whether you surround them with diamonds or you are looking for just a solitary ruby – your ring will look beautiful!

So really – rubies are the best in the world for the changing of the times and they are becoming popular everywhere!
