One of the nicest things you can treat yourself to is jewelry that makes you feel good every time you look at it, but we all know that just because a bauble is small doesn’t mean it’s not very, very expensive. The prohibitive cost of fine jewelry can be a major hurdle to taking the plunge and making the purchase—which is just no fun when all you want is a bit of extra sparkle.
Luckily, there are a number of dainty pieces of fine jewelry out there that don’t cost a ton of money, including real diamonds, gold, platinum, and other kinds of gemstones. Far be it from us to speak ill of a giant rock every now and then, but there’s something so enticing about stones that are a bit smaller and more delicate. Nothing in here is above $300, ladies.
