8 Tips for Finding Cheap Wedding Jewelry

If you’re like most brides, you have unplanned wedding expenses and somehow need to cut back on your budget. Fortunately, you can find a variety of wedding jewelry for less than you thought possible. Here are eight tips for doing it:

one. Buy replicas. From a distance and to the untrained eye, cubic zirconia and crystal are indistinguishable from real stones. If you’ve fallen in love with a piece of fine jewelry you can’t afford, a similar piece made from these less expensive materials can look exquisite.

two. Opt for silver or gold jewelry instead of solid gold or platinum. To a casual observer, the difference in quality is not obvious. Also, silver is always in fashion.

3. Consider cheap pearls (Freshwater cultured pearls are generally cheaper than other types.) Gold, buy pearl-shaped crystals.

Four. Ask for a discount if you plan to buy multiple pieces. Also, it doesn’t hurt to make an offer for one piece. Designers, online stores, and other independents have some freedom in pricing their products.

5. Buy on eBay. There is always a wide variety of inexpensive parts available through auctions or eBay stores. The inventory is constantly changing, so check back often if you don’t find the right part on your first visit.

6. Rent jewelry for your wedding. If you must have fine jewelry but can’t afford it, rent pieces for the ceremony and reception.

7. Make your own jewelry. You’ll enjoy the added benefit of full customization. Craft stores like Ben Franklin and Hobby Lobby have aisles dedicated to jewelry-making supplies. You can also buy supplies on eBay.

8. Consider borrowing. Wearing a piece from Mom, Aunt Ellen, or a special friend can add sentimental value to the wedding and work wonders on a budget.

There you go! Eight ways to ease budget stress and still wear the perfect jewelry set on your big day.
