How I Save Tonnes on Jewellery When I Shop

Let talk pretty things I can't resist. 
If there's one thing I can't resist when I'm shopping, it's jewellery. An outfit isn't complete until I've topped it off with something sparkly. But having a jewellery obsession isn't always very healthy for my bank account, even if it improves my wardrobe. Luckily, I have lots of ideas on how to save money when I'm looking for new pieces. I don't need to spend hundreds of pounds every time I get something new. But I don't have to stick to cheap rubbish either. If you know what to look for, you can get quality pieces at lower prices. Here are some of the ways that I save money on my jewellery habit.


Ignore Big Name Brands

Whenever I shop, designer brands can be tempting. But ultimately, I don't care whose name is on whatever I buy. Sometimes a label might indicate that it's a quality piece of jewellery. But often it's not much more than a status symbol. I don't mind buying anything, regardless of whether it's from Swarovski or Argos. You can save money on designer jewellery. However, if you limit yourself to famous brands, you'll have much less to choose from. I think it's best to be open-minded, and you can still find something that you love. Sometimes independent, homemade pieces are best.

Buy Lab-grown Gemstones

Not every piece of jewellery needs to have diamonds or other stones on it. However, I do love a bit of sparkle on anything I buy. Precious stones can be very expensive, though, as everyone knows. Diamonds can be especially costly, even though they come in a range of shapes, colours and sizes that affect the price. An alternative option that can save you money is man-made diamonds. But what are man-made diamonds? They are real diamonds, but instead of being mined, they're made in a laboratory. You can buy other stones that are made in the same way. Not only are they cheaper, but they're more ethical too.

Small Stones Over Large

If you can't resist a sparkly stone, one of my top tips is to choose smaller ones to save money. Lots of little stones on one piece will cost you less than one big stone. Some people don't like the bling look of a cluster of tiny gems, but you don't have to buy something covered in them. A classy line of small gemstones or a few carefully dotted about can look beautiful. Most importantly, it could save you a lot of money without having to compromise on quality.

Look for Discounts

Of course, the best way to save on anything is to look for great deals. I've bagged many a bargain by finding something on sale. As well as going shopping and buying something in-store, you can find loads of incredible offers online. Try checking voucher websites for discounts on lots of different pieces. You can often find shops getting rid of the last of their stock for very cheap prices.

It's easy to save money on jewellery if you know how. You only need a few ground rules and you'll get much more for your cash.
