When it comes to costume jewelry, I’m still undecided whether or not it’s worth taking the splurge. While I do love my beloved YSL Arty Ring, I must admit I haven’t gone all out on other custome jewelry yet simply because I prefer to either buy cheap jewelry or invest in classic gold or silver jewelry from the likes of Tiffany & Co. and others. But all the middle-priced stuff in between? Not so sure about that. This beautiful crystal-studded ring by Vita Fede however just might change my mind. I love how subtle and delicate it is, plus being 24k gold plated it’s not terribly expensive at $150. Decisions, decisions. What’s your opinion on that matter? Would you rather splurge or save?

BaubleBar Ice Peak Pavé Ring

If you can’t make up your mind either or simply don’t want to splurge, here’s a great alternative from BaubleBar that won’t break the bank. The design is very similar to Vita Fede’s V Ring, but the price difference is huge since the BaubleBar version is currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $20.

Express Stackable Pavé Chevron Ring Set

If you like a little bit more variety in your jewelry and want to save even further, then this ring set from Express might be your best choice. Again a similar design, but way cheaper than the real deal. $22.90 for two rings!

A few of our readers mailed us and asked for more jewelry to be featured here on this blog. Now while jewelry is admittedly not my strongest forte when it comes to finding steals, I will do my best to keep our readers satisfied. And what better way to start than with Tiffany & Co. jewelry? Introduced in 1995, the Atlas collection is named for the mythic Greek god who holds aloft an enormous globe. Created by John Loring, Tiffany design director emeritus, the Atlas collection explores the raised Roman numerals of its archetype, the Atlas watch. The collection encompasses necklaces, pendants and earrings to bangles and rings in 18 karat yellow, rose or white gold and sterling silver with diamonds. In this post we focus on the Atlas hinged bangle. The 18k gold version comes in at a whopping $7k – ouch!

Style Bloggers Love Tiffany & Co.

Various style and fashion bloggers such as Jessica from Tuula, Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad and Aimee Song from Song of Style have all been spotted wearing the Tiffany & Co. Atlas Hinged Bangle.

GoJane Roman Numeral Segmented Bracelet

Update (02/24/2015): Found another great and affordable Tiffany & Co. Atlas bracelet dupe at GoJane. Available in either gold- or silvertone for only $16.40!

Zenzii Roman Bangle

Luckily, you don’t have to rob a bank to get a similar look. These Roman bangles by Zenzii are a great alternative if you’re after the coveted Atlas bracelet. It’s not a total match because the Zenzii bangles feature more Roman numerals than the real deal, but it’s still a great look for less which will cost you only $28.95 instead of $7.000. Now that’s what I call a real steal!

I love costume jewelry, but really hate spending lots of money on it. I just don’t see the point in investing several hundreds of dollars in something that’s not even real gold (alright, YSL’s Arty ring is excluded from this testimony). Call me frugal, call me cheap, whatever! Luckily, we have BaubleBarpjx where you get the best of both worlds: trendy and up-to-date statement jewelry for affordable prices and in a decent quality on top. Most of their items are under $30 (many under $40!) like their highly popular 360 Stud Earringspjx (aka the Mise en Dior dupe). What’s great about BaubleBar is that they offer free shipping (both ways!) on all US orders. And what’s even greater is that you can get 15% off your first order if you sign up to the BaubleBar newsletter. Steal deal alert! Plus, now that gift season is upon us: all of their jewelry comes in (free!) gorgeous, giftable boxes. Perfect for any christmas present! Below are a few of our personal BaubleBar favorites.

You can love or hate Kim Kardashian all you want, but there’s no denying that some of her outfits are absolutely superb! I’m not quite sure if this is mainly due to Kim having a really good stylist, but whatever it is, it works, so please don’t stop, Kimmy! Case in point: Kim’s body-con getup at Teyana Taylor’s VII Listening Party which consisted of a creamy white high-waist pencil skirt, a matching tight turtleneck sweater, taupe heels, soft waves and understated makeup. Doesn’t she look just perfect here? The sex appeal of this outfit lies within the curvaceous silhouette while the high-necked top and midi-length skirt bring some much needed elegance and class to Kim’s look. The minute I spotted this gorgeous outfit of Kim, I knew I would have to do a look 4 less of it. Soooo, what do you think? Is my budget-friendly take on Kim’s look on point or not so much?

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?
