Here are four reasons that I like buying the occasional lower-end piece of jewelry:
- You can treat yourself for a song. Jewelry is a special accessory that brings a little sparkle into your day and your look, so if you can acquire it for the price of a few boxes of cereal, why not give yourself the occasional treat? And gentlemen, there is nothing like giving your SigOth a sweet little piece of jewelry, just because it's Wednesday. Try it.
- It's vacation season. Other than my wedding rings, I never travel with my good jewelry...it all goes in the bank safe. But I still like to accessorize. So instead of the beautiful Japanese pearls that my husband gave me as a wedding present, I wear my $19.99 freshwater pearl strand. If I lose it or it gets stolen, I don't blink.
- Sometimes I want a piece of jewelry that's very trendy (hello Michal Negrin-style bracelets). Never invest a lot of money in something that you probably won't want to wear next year.
- Jewelry never makes you look fat. ;)
That said, here are my picks from today's the 1SaleADay Flash Sale:
freshwater peach-colored pearl ring in a sterling silver setting, for $7.99 with free shipping. Love the modern swoop design.
This musical clef pendant made of black diamond accents set in silverplate on an 18" chain for $8.99 with free shipping.
Pretty, fun, and very inexpensive. Browse around, but don't wait too long, because these deals will all disappear tonight (6/20/12) at midnight EST.
