How to Make Cheap Jewellery Look More Expensive
Too-shiny metal is a dead giveaway of inexpensive materials. Instead, opt for pieces that have slightly darker colouring.
Even if you’re a die-hard glitzy girl, we recommend avoiding plastic gemstones, especially of the neon variety. Instead, opt for clear crystals, which will still give you a bit of glamour while still feeling elevated.
In the realm of inexpensive jewellery, look for jewellery made of gold vermeil, which won’t leave colour residue on your skin. Avoid copper, nickel, and gold-plated jewellery, which can leave telling green marks!
You want to pick affordable jewellery that has a little bit of weight too it. Flimsy and lightweight baubles almost always look cheap.
A blingy bib necklace may seem like an easy way to dress up an otherwise boring outfit, but they can feel a bit common and cheap. When picking a statement necklace, look for geometric chokers, sculptural pieces, or pieces with vintage charm or an ethnic vibe.
