5 Cheap Jewelry That Looks Expensive
Jewelry is the ultimate form of flattery, there is no denying that. Michael Douglas expressed his love for Catherine Zeta-Jone by giving her a $2m wedding ring. It was 2004 when Donald Trump gave a massive $3m, 15 carat diamond ring to Melania Knauss for their engagement, and it was kept no secret, with a public advertisement made by the tycoon himself. Reportedly the most expensive, Paris Hilton’s newest 24 carat emerald-cut diamond wedding ring costs $4.7m. The standards have been set sky high and jewelry is not getting any cheaper. Let’s find out what you can buy for a fraction of the normal prices and still get something that looks like a million dollars!
1. Costume Jewelry
If you have not yet heard the words “costume jewelry”, you need to get with the times. Costume jewelry, aka imitation jewelry/fashion jewelry is the talk of the town. A big hit with the younger generation, imitation jewelry is gaining momentum in the fashion world. Women around the world prefer imitation jewelry as opposed to the real thing as these are inexpensive, offer jazzy designs and even look like the real jewelry.
