Jewelry under $500 FAQ
Fine jewelry can cost anywhere between $150 to $3,000 and above, depending on the piece that you’re buying. The cost of fine jewelry is always determined by it’s value.
The materials, the design, and the details will inform how much a nice piece of jewelry will cost.
Fine jewelry is more expensive than other types of jewelry because it’s made from more valuable materials.
Precious metals like gold, platinum, and sterling silver, and precious gemstones, like diamonds and pearls, are all used for fine jewelry. These cost more and are worth more, than cheaper materials like copper, brass, stainless steel, and fake gems.
Fine jewelry should not lose its value, as long as it’s taken care of. If you’re buying mined diamond jewelry, however, keep in mind that the price you’re paying does not reflect its value. Mined diamonds resell for significantly less because the mined diamond industry grossly marks up the price of diamonds.
VRAI lab-grown diamond jewelry is priced according to value, not middlemen markups, and will retain its value for years to come.
It’s perfectly fine to wear cheap jewelry if you want to. But, cheap jewelry doesn’t last long, and it’s made from metals that may irritate sensitive skin.
If your budget allows, invest in fine jewelry. Fine jewelry will stand the test of time, whereas cheap jewelry will break easily, and need to be replaced frequently.
How much the average person spends on jewelry varies according to age and income bracket. In 2022, 270 billion US dollars were spent on jewelry. 45-54-year-olds are consistently the highest spenders on jewelry, with an annual average spend of $304.6 per person.
