When you start shopping for affordable jewelry you might feel like costume or mass-produced discount jewelry are the only options. But when you buy from a discount jewelry shop online, you’ll end up sacrificing quality for price. If you go the costume jewelry route you’ll be able to tell it’s not real.
Instead, shop at vintage jewelry stores. Vintage jewelry is less expensive because, after all, it’s used. Plus, an authentic vintage piece has stood the test of time, so you can feel more confident in the quality. Plus, plus, you’re getting the real deal. It’s like shopping for vintage clothing, you’re going to pay less than if you bought it new. Vintage is the best way to get real jewelry on the cheap!
Free shipping is a great way to save money on your jewelry purchase for obvious reasons. If you’re not paying for shipping when you order online, you’re saving money. It's definitely going to keep the overall cost of your jewelry down. The key here is to make sure you get free shipping both ways. Which leads me to my next point.
Know The Return Policy
This may not seem like a cost-saving measure but think about it this way. It’s hard to know if you really like a piece of jewelry until you see it in person, and some vintage jewelers have pretty limited return policies. If you don’t know the return policy before you buy, you might end up stuck with a piece of jewelry you don’t totally love, which will end up costing you more in the long run.
At Atique all of our vintage jewelry comes with a year-long return policy. You can learn more about 365-day returns here.
