Splurge vs. Steal - Celeb and Designer Trends for Less!

Posted on December 05 2014

Splurge vs. Steal - Get the same look for less!

Since when does buying trendy and fashion forward jewelry have to break the bank? At emmajoy, we believe that a girl doesn’t have to break the bank to stay on trend and look like a million bucks!  Here are five designer favorites that we’ve been inspired by. The question is… will you pick to splurge or steal?

1.TREND #1: Vintage Jeweled Bracelets

This gorgeous vintage bracelet from designer Nadri can be found at Nordstrom for almost $127 (check it out here). Emmajoy borrows inspiration from this vintage beauty with our Vintage Jewel Bracelet for only $16.00. Though it's not made with real cubic zirconia crystals, it's still a showstopper at a fraction of the price. We say it's time to get your Audrey Hepburn on!

2. TREND #2: Floral Crystal Studs

We are in love with these floral studded earrings that are so easy to wear and can go with pretty much everything! One of our favorite designers, J. Crew, brought these beauties into their shop for $38 (check it out here), so we decided to get our own version. These earrings look almost identical, but no one has to know that you got it for a steal!

3. TREND #3: Cursive Love Necklaces

These necklaces are so delicate and romantic! Stack them on with other minimalist pieces or wear as an individual statement piece. Can 'love' be any sweeter? We're crazy about this Gold Love Pendant Necklace by Sydney Evan, but at a $750.00 price tag, it's hard to fit in our budget. We've substituted this piece with our own version of the cursive love aesthetic for a price that doesn't make your wallet cry.

4. TREND #4: Cable Twist Cuffs

David Yurman is known for creating innovative jewelry designs that become stylist classics. You've probably seen this Cable Classics Bracelet on all the celebs, but isn't it time you picked up your own? We've added a similar style to our store so you can ride with the trend, without having to fork over half a grand (see it here).

5. TREND #5: "X" Criss Cross Rings

Now for the grand finale...we've saved the best for last! One of our favorite designers, Alex Mika, came onto the scene in full force over the past few years. Celebs are completely obsessed with this hot trend and we don't see it dying out any time soon. So instead of splurging on Mika's Criss Cross Ring, why not get emmajoy's version (here) and feel guilt-free instead? Victoria Justice and Candice Swanepoel are just a few of the celebs who've caught onto the trend and just can't get enough!

We hope you enjoyed these serious steals. And remember...looking trendy and glamorous doesn't always have to hurt your wallet! Check out emmajoy for more designer-inspired pieces at affordable prices!
