It is a truth universally acknowledged that the quickest way to upgrade an outfit is with some shiny new baubles
. Okay, maybe that's not the primary truth, but it still counts.
Unfortunately, some of the jewels we’ve had our eye of late on aren’t exactly easy on the wallet (lookin’ at you, Venna
!). But those aren't our only
options. We searched out a dozen affordable gems
that'll easily get us our glamor fix — without breaking the bank.
So, from a crystal bib necklace that’ll jazz up any ensemble to a pair of dangly, blue-and-green earrings that have us dreaming of fall, our favorite under-$50 gems
demand you stock up on 'em now.
