Unfortunately, the price points just can't be justified for something I would only wear occasionally. And that's where Forever 21 comes in. The materials they use may not be as costly - no silver or gold plating, semi precious stones, etc. but I have found that they really hold their own in terms of quality and style. For a fraction of the price, (I really do mean a mere fraction!) Forever 21 offers pieces that look like they could've easily come from a boutique.
The pieces below were all under $20 and the smaller gray and gold earrings were only $1.50!! Needless to say, this is just a glimpse of my large collection of Forever 21 pieces.
I highly recommend taking a closer look at the jewelry section at your local store.
