If you are searching for affordable but elegant pieces of jewelry that you can wear multiple times and with different outfits, then there are a few pieces that are essential for your collection. First, though artificial, cubic zirconium has been known to come in such realistic looking designs with a crystal clear clarity and a sparkle that can almost not reveal that it is not actually a diamond.
Infinitely more affordable than a diamond and far less precious, having a cubic zirconium piece can be good to have for many reasons. First of all, you can feel comfortable wearing it with casual clothing, to add a bit of flair even when you go places less formal, like work or school or out for a fun day of hiking. That way, if you happen to lose your piece, you will not feel as though you have misplaced thousands of dollars. Instead you will feel as though it is easy to replace, thus allowing you to wear guiltless jewelry that you do not have to save for very special occasions.
Also, you can get jewelry that is just like the real thing and the way to do this is to select high quality cubic zirconium in a believable form. When it comes in large sizes, usually people do not tend to believe that it is real and it also has a sort of false, costume jewelry effect, but if you choose a necklace with a small stone and small lobe earrings to match, it is far more likely that it will have an authentic feel to it.
Also, pearls are a great accessory to almost any outfit. A string of pearls is a traditional piece of jewelry that has been a favorite of women dating back far into the depths of history. Pearls come in almost every shade of pink, coral, white, and black, and can be worn with almost anything, as well. You can enjoy a good string of pearls with a casual skirt and top, or even with a blouse and jeans, or with a formal dress and gown.
Pearls have a classic feel and look about them that speak volumes about elegance, refinement, and special style. You can choose to have real pearls or false pearls, as the price range in all pearls really ranges based on quality, style, and the size and quantity of the pearls. Having one set of real pearls, or ones that look authentic, can be a favorite piece that you can wear again and again with a great many of your outfits. Also, matching pearl earrings has always been a traditional and elegant statement of ladylike grace and beauty.
Another great piece to have includes a set of rings. Rings actually make a wonderful accessory to many fancier outfits or even more chic styles, such as jeans paired with stylish blouses with splashy prints and colors. These rings are usually not real but made with lab created stones and set in steel or sterling silver. Sometimes they are not made with stones at all, but made with other kinds of metals and pearls that are painted blue or pink or purple. You can get these rings as fashion pieces that match well with many different outfits and sort of pull the essence of your outfit together and make a bold statement on your hand.
