Do you want to look fashionable and get your hands on the hottest 2011 trends in jewelry without breaking the bank? It might seem like an impossible task. However, with a little work and some ingenuity, you can be on the cutting edge of today’s fashions without spending all your hard-earned money on jewelry. So if you want to wear the latest top designers like Judith Ripka, Scott Kay, Rhonda Faber Green, or Carl F. Bucherer; don’t despair if you do not have a wallet full of money. Let’s look at some ways to save some money while wearing the newest designs.
One of the best ways to not spend a lot of money is to go for some of the new trends that are not loaded with precious stones or expensive metals like gold or silver. This year that is not so hard. Some of today’s trends are made with materials that are not expensive. One of the biggest trends is metal jewelry that is lightweight but large in size. There are also big, bold, fringed pieces that match the hot new fringe styles in clothing. These pieces are also usually made with less expensive materials as they are relying on size to attract attention and not precious stones.
Another way to save money but stay trendy is to consider costume jewelry. Today’s costume jewelry is has higher quality stones like cubic zirconium, higher priced crystals and sometimes semi-precious stones. The metals are often sterling silver, gold-plated brass or silver-plated brass. Many pieces like these can be found in vintage and retro stores. Look for some over-sized bangles and retro rings if you want to wear a hot jewelry trend of 2011. All in all, it is easy to be in style and save money if you give it a little thought and creativity.
