When I was little, one of my favorite things to do was look through my grandmother's extensive collection of costume jewelry - something I learned from her was that you don't have to spend a fortune on real diamonds & pearls in order to look chic. She had a knack for accessorizing with affordable pieces in a way that appeared high-end. That lesson stuck with me and now I find that I actually prefer wearing budget-friendly styles vs. fine jewelry for everyday. So today I'm sharing some of my favorite sites for finding great quality pieces at prices that won't break the bank.
