What to Look For When Shopping for Affordable Bridal Jewelry

When shopping for affordable bridal jewelry, quality is the most critical factor to take into consideration. While some jewelry pieces under $100 use real gold, it's always good practice to pay close attention to the shade of gold jewelry and ensure it's not overly yellow. With earrings, pay attention to the material, as earrings made from nickel may cause an allergic reaction for some. Also, you'll want to ensure the pieces you choose to wear come with sturdy collapses, whether an earring backing or a necklace or bracelet clasp. Some budget-friendly jewelry pieces may have the tendency to fall off if they aren't secured well, so if you think this might be the case, try changing out the clasp using a pair of pliers and a new hook.

Lastly, when it comes to bridal jewelry, less is more. Think simplicity when searching for a necklace or earrings to add to your wedding day look. Sometimes large jewels can be overwhelming and take away from the dress or your ring, so it's important to find balance within your accessories.

FAQ

    It varies, but if you want a piece of jewelry that's affordable but still looks elegant, expect to pay somewhere between $50 and $75.

Etsy and Revolve also have a wide selection of affordable jewelry, but just make sure to take a peek at the reviews before purchasing.
