Jewellery is so versatile as not only does it make a great gift for a loved one, it is also something that doesn’t need to be exclusive to gift giving as many people buy themselves jewellery as they know what they like and what suits their style.
People also often assume that unique jewellery means that it is expensive, but that’s not always the case as there are many places that you can source beautiful, individual jewellery that doesn’t cost a great deal.
Whether you are looking for homemade jewellery, exquisite pieces, or a cheap and cheerful addition to your wardrobe, then Etsy really does have it all. Etsy is a website where you can buy handmade, craft, or vintage items for a fraction of the price that you would expect to pay at top end designers, or even off the high street.
This is because the sellers on Etsy don’t have the huge overheads the big name jewellery makers have so can sell beautiful pieces a lot cheaper than these businesses. You will often find too that they are ‘one of a kind’ pieces as many items sold through Etsy are only made once, meaning that you have a truly unique piece of jewellery.
If you have a few hours to spend one day, then dedicate that time to searching through the Aladdin’s Cave that can be charity shops. You never know what beautiful item you are likely to find as you can never guarantee what will be donated.
Often, as the volunteers working in the shop are very busy and understaffed, they don’t always have the time to display, and therefore market to the true potential, the very unique and lovely pieces of jewellery the way they should so they can often get overlooked. This is why you need to get in there and have a rummage through any boxes or stands that have a lot of jewellery in them.
Auction houses can be fascinating because you are never sure what you are going to get until you get there, and even then, there’s never any guarantee that you will win what you want. However, more often than not, you can also leave paying a fraction of the price for something you would have paid a lot more for as nobody else was bidding, or if they were, you just wanted it more than they did. It is the luck of the draw.
There are many pieces of fine jewellery you can purchase at auction houses such as this one where you will find earrings, necklaces, watches, and bracelets, but to name a few.
Buying jewellery doesn’t have to be expensive, and it can also be a lot of fun sourcing the ideal pieces for you. If you are prepared to look around at different places and get involved in what that place has to offer, then you can leave with not only beautiful jewellery but something that doesn’t cost the earth either.
