Vintage Leaf Rhinestone Lock Pendant Necklace
- 8.99 USD
While "gaudy" is never a look to go for, there's something about an oversized cocktail ring that's totally chic without looking tacky. After all, a little bling never hurt anyone... that is, except when said cocktail ring burns a serious hole in your wallet! Luckily, aside from the giant diamonds and precious gems, there are plenty of affordable options to rock the costume jewelry look and make a fashionable statement that doesn't say "I spent a fortune" or "This was as cheap as it looks!" Who says nice jewelry has to cost an arm and a leg? Without further ado, take a look at the slideshow for 10 cocktail rings under $30!
The term boudoir may typically conjure up thoughts of a really ancient antique store full of gaudy Renaissance-style furniture... or faded photographs of retro-scandalous lingerie models. More glamorously, you may think of Marie Antoinette getting pampered in her own personal powder room boudoir (errr, before her fateful demise, that is). Either way, when translated to the realm of jewelry, boudoir-inspired baubles are elegantly vintage-chic in their ornate designs and toned-down pearly shades. Think pearls, lace, antiqued gold -- things you might've found when raiding your great-great-great-great-great grandmother's jewelry box. With a little modern flavor and the subtlest of Baroque influences, these vintage-y picks are anything but tacky (as long as you don't pile them all on at once!) and make the perfect Valentine's Day gift for anyone who appreciates the glamour of time periods past! Check the slideshow for the selection!
