$60 or Less

Everybody seemed to love the ring from yesterday's post, but all the comments made it clear that $12,500 is not very affordable. When I'm posting, I try to even out the expensive stuff with a couple of pieces a more realistic paycheck can cover, but I sometimes get caught up the in the luxury of fantasy! Thanks, ladies, for bringing it to my attention.

To balance out the extravagance of a piece that most of us can only dream about (and based on the comments, a lot of you were doing just that), today's post limits things to $60 or less. I'll try to make this a regular feature for us cash strapped folks who still like pretty things!

A note: You may notice the necklaces are long, thin, (for the most part) gold and delicate, with a focal charm. These actually fall into a trend of gold necklaces that Penelope of I <333 Clothes! noticed, and posted about here.

Xccents necklace by Bijou, $59

Mali Bangle of Hand-Hammered Brass by SURevolution, $55

Green Girl Necklace by Peggy Li (with my favorite stone: rutilated quartz), $59

Horizon Circular Walnut Earrings by Orno, $49

Retro Tree Ring by Block Party Press, $12

Marissa Necklace by Sans Couture, $45

I love the last necklace - I have a similar one. Thanks for this post - while I still love your expensive jewelry posts - this is more in my price range! :)

What the hell! $12K is totally affordable. Why do you people need to eat and have a home over your head? How can you be so selfish? *weeping*

Lady N: My pleasure!

WB: Aww! Don't weep.
I think even if I stopped eating and lived on the streets, it would still take me a long time to afford that ring.
