The Best Places to Buy Jewelry on Different Budgets

No matter what your personal style may be, most of us love accessorizing with a little extra bling.

Jewelry can make an entire outfit or just add a little extra dazzle, and it's a great way to express yourself and who you are to the world. However, as world history might tell us, jewelry can also cost a fortune (they don't make so many movies about trying to steal crown jewels and other pricey items for nothing). It doesn't have to, though, and you can still get some really gorgeous pieces without having to pay a pretty penny.

So, whether you've got hundreds or tens or even just dollars to spend on new jewelry, there's a place for you to find what you're looking for. And we're here to make it all easier for you with our list of the best places to buy jewelry on different budgets.

If Money Is No Object: Tiffany & Co.

While we'd love to put a pricey name like Cartier on this list, something a little more in the $200+ range is probably a little more realistic. If you aren't worried about money or are willing to seriously shell out for a special occasion, you really can't do it better than a classic piece from Tiffany & Co.

If You're Willing to spend $60+: Kendra Scott

We love Kendra Scott jewelry, as this brand is known for its simple, stone-forward designs that are nothing short of timeless. They have pieces that can fit almost any price range, from cheaper fashion jewelry pieces in the $30-$50 zone to more expensive items that are all well worth the cost. Want a pro tip? If you go during your birthday month, you get a sweet 25-50% off one item, depending on which line you choose from.

If You Can Afford $40+: Alex and Ani

While this brand rose to popularity several years back for their famed bangle bracelets, they've managed to stick around through shifting trends with their effortless approach to jewelry. Sure, you can still go for a personalized bangle bracelet that speaks to your personal interests, but now you can also opt for a more delicate clasp bracelet or even a casual yet classy stretch bracelet that can complement virtually any outfit.

If $20-30+ Is More Your Budget: Etsy

Jewelry seems so much more personal when it's handmade, and that's exactly what you'll get with handmade pieces from Etsy. Whether you're searching for the perfect necklace, ring, bracelet or any other kind of jewelry you can think of, there's sure to be something to suit your wants and needs on this site.

If the Price Matters Less Than the Free Shipping: Amazon

Similar to Etsy, you can find a style for every taste on Amazon. From sterling silver to gold-plated and even cheaper costume jewelry pieces, you're sure to find what you're looking for on the famed online retailer (and you might even be able to wear it as soon as the next day thanks to the magic of Amazon Prime).

If Your Price Range Is Around $10-20: Target

There are about a million and one reasons why we love Target, and their excellent jewelry selection is just one of them. They have pieces that make for perfect gifts as well as necklaces, earrings, watches and so much more that you'll want to keep for yourself, too. The best part? They're often made from high-quality materials and barely break the bank at roughly $10 and up.

If You'd Rather Keep It Below $10: Forever 21/H&M

If you're looking to upgrade your jewelry selection without breaking the bank (and don't care if the color of the metals doesn't last), then stores like Forever 21 and H&M are the perfect spot to check. Their fashion jewelry items are great for pairing with a variety of outfits, and they even sell great statement pieces for when you want to make an outfit a total look.
