SHOPPING HACK TIPS FOR INVESTING IN LUXURY JEWELRY FOR A-LOT LESS

The Joey Journal Shopping Hacks & Tips you need to know...

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: , 3min read362 views

Jewelry is often considered one of the more expensive luxuries when you’re buying high-quality pieces. While there’s a great amount of cheap jewelry, this type of jewelry is usually made from less durable metals. That can lead to rusting of the jewelry easily when it’s exposed to moisture. It may also be prone to scratching and tarnishing easily.

While jewelry isn’t for everyone, it can be a great way of treating yourself to a little bit of luxury from time to time. Buying high-quality jewelry though takes a keen eye and the right tips to get the best pieces available.

Here’s everything you need to know on how to buy high-quality jewelry, without it breaking the bank every time.

Know your metals

Every metal is different from the next. Some metals may be very durable but are fairly cheap to produce when it comes to jewelry, while others are very weak and easily damaged.

Metals when it comes to jewelry are important to get clued up on, especially when it comes to spending your hard-earned cash. After all, you don’t want to end up buying something that’s overpriced and turns out to be made from a metal that wears easily.

Visit jewelry shops in-person

Be sure to visit as many jewelry shops in person, rather than shopping online. While shopping online for jewelry has its perks, it’s not something that you really want to do until you know more about what it is you’re looking for. The problem with shopping online with little knowledge is that you might end up buying something that isn’t very valuable or offers much for your money.

Seeing jewelry in person is a great way of getting a good viewpoint of the piece itself. Whether that’s a necklace, a pair of earrings, or a ring, you’ve got the ability to try them on or put them against your skin to check if it’s right for you.

Review the jewelry brands carefully

Every jewelry brand is going to be different from the next. It’s important that you’re carefully reviewing the brands themselves and making sure they’re legitimate. Whether you choose to shop online or in-store, there are plenty of scammers out there that will be more than willing to exchange faulty jewelry for your money.

Take a look at review websites, like this one for vrai jewelry. That way, you’ll know which ones to look out for and which ones to avoid.

Be flexible with your style

It’s beneficial to be flexible with your style because there will often be some treasures in the collections that you would least expect or care to look at. Try to be flexible with your style and choose pieces to try on or try out that wouldn’t necessarily be your go-to picks. 

Check the clearance aisles

To get the most value for your money, consider checking out the clearance aisles. They’ll be available both online and in-store and you might find a great piece or two in these sections.

Buying high-quality is possible without spending a fortune, so use these tips to your advantage.

Sustainable fashion has been at the focus of the apparel and clothing industry recently and it’s heartening to see the brand Naeco producing their sunglasses using repurposed plastic bottles from our oceans.

The Deep Connection with the Ocean is Naeco’s DNA, and Founder Zak chose to be a business that reduces waste, recycles and makes a difference.

It’s quite astonishing how their approach to pioneer eco textiles makes for a stylish design and investing in products like these will help secure cleaner oceans for future generations to come.

Just 5 percent of plastics are recycled effectively while 40 percent end up in the landfill and a third in fragile ecosystems such as the world’s oceans.

Much of the remainder is burned. Did you know, at least 8m tonnes of plastics leak into the oceans – which is the equivalent of dumping the contents of one rubbish truck into the ocean every minute.

Treat Yourself and the Planet Better

Naeco is the proud winner of the DHL Fashion Potential Award 2019. Their new website and Trident Sunglasses collection has just landed and I can’t wait to tell you what they have been working on. So far there are jackets, blazers and other garments all made from recycled plastic in signature super soft fabrics.

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or Matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last.

I just couldn’t wait to do a try on at home for the new collection of Unisex sunglasses designed to suit the face of both men and women including the exceptional high workmanship to the high end German hinges ensure they stay on your head in all situations – even the roughest of weather conditions too.

The Ocean is in Our Hands

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last. When I was asked to model a new sunglasses range for Naeco of course I said yes absolutely 100 percent. Why? Not only because they are a luxury product, and who doesn’t adore something well made and long lasting.

They have a few different styles but the wayfarers were my favourite just because they are light weight and very comfortable. It’s maybe it’s something to do with the German engineered frame is spot on and very versatile to wear whether sailing the highs or poolside lounging.

Most importantly this is a British Brand that is working hard to make a difference and help clean up the planet. Also, during the pandemic we must do our utmost best to support small business and new start up to get the economy going in Britain.
