Some say designer jewelry is a worthy investment. These luxurious pieces are carefully crafted and made from quality materials — but sometimes, we just can’t justify the price. We’ve rounded up some gorgeous alternatives to popular, expensive pieces. Here’s how you can get the look for less.
Splurge: Van Cleef & Arpels Sweet Alhambra Necklace
This dainty piece of jewelry is a designer favorite for a reason. Its yellow gold hardware and mother-of-pearl centerpiece make it an everyday staple. However, we found a way less expensive pick that was inspired by this one.
This iconic pearl choker is in high demand and it’s been sold out for a while now. It features the Vivienne Westwood orb and the rings of Saturn — adorned with Swarovski crystals, of course. Although the original is unavailable for now, we found a pretty great alternative that you can wear instead, for a fraction of the price.
This dainty necklace is made from glass pearls and enamel, so you don’t have to worry about tarnishing or water damage. Whether you decide to wear it every day or save it for special occasions, this necklace will be an absolute showstopper.
The iconic Hermes bangle is fashionable, yet minimalist. It’s available in several colorful enamel options and features gold-plated hardware. However, if you’re not looking to pay a pretty penny for this piece, we found the perfect alternative.
This enamel bracelet comes in 10 vivid colors, so you can experiment with different combinations. Although it doesn’t feature a big designer H like the Hermes bracelet, it achieves the same colorful, classy result. Wear them alone or stack a few for a look that’s tailored to you and your style.
