I started “Baubles on a Budget” because there are so many pieces of inexpensive jewelry that, well, look cheap. But that’s not always the case. It takes a fair amount of time to sift through pieces online to find costume jewelry that looks more expensive than it actually is. I know that setting the cap at $75 might even be too expensive for many budgets, especially if you’re not as heart-eyed for jewelry as I am, so I’ll always try to include a range of price points in this monthly roundup. You’ll also notice that I typically stay away from jewelry that’s overly trendy. Those pieces are unlikely to get much love after one season and I believe that anything you buy — budget or not — should be something you’ll want to wear for more than one season. With that in mind, here are the wallet-friendly gems to add to your collection this month:
1. J.Crew Beaded Tassel Earrings, $65* | 2. Lele Sadoughi Solstice Earrings, $55 (on sale!) | 3. Elizabeth and James Bea Ring, $49 (on sale!) | 4. Serefina Fringe Drape Earrings, $66* | 5.
