I had gotten to a point where I wanted to invest in higher quality, timeless jewelry pieces that I can wear every day for the rest of my life.
I was sick of buying cheap jewelry that tarnishes almost immediately, turns my skin unnatural colours, and basically rusts right off of my body.
I was willing to pay more for better quality, preferably something I can wear into water without worry. I don’t want to risk losing my jewelry every time I shower, wash my hands, go to the beach, etc.
I’d rather just make my jewelry a permanent fixture, which means I’ve been on the hunt for quality materials made into simple, elegant designs.
I’m a gold kind of gal (silver just doesn’t look right on me) so I was preparing my wallet for a heavy blow.
Honestly, low-cost costume jewelry came about because we wanted jewelry for everyday use without having to pay hundreds to thousands of dollars for it. So, enter costume jewelry…
Now… EXIT costume jewelry.
