Melinda Maria 18k Gold Plated Melted Art Deco Cuff Bracelet – $198

Melinda Maria, another of the top art deco jewelry designers, makes this sophisticated melted Art Deco cuff that features a flat checkerboard-style faceted black onyx cubic zirconia gemstone set in an asymmetrical geometric frame that conceals part of the stone. This bracelet isn’t your average art deco costume jewelry item, but a piece of art with a textured 18k gold plating that’s been molded to give the illusion that’s it’s melting. This cuff bracelet is adjustable but isn’t as wide as it appears – just 1.25 inches, which means it’s delicate enough to accent eveningwear.

Vintage Inspired Art Deco Jewelry Designs – Cocktail Rings

1. Beyond Rings

Beyond Rings Art Deco Jewelry Ring – $55

There’s a fine line between vintage art deco jewelry and antique pieces, which is especially true of this piece by Beyond Rings. It combines clear crystal gemstones with a blackened background and gold plated accents in a design that captures the flamboyant spirit of art deco jewelry period, which spanned the 20’s and 30’s, with elaborately stylized geometric symmetry mimicking architectural shapes and melding into opulently detailed artistic extravagance.

A Complete Vintage Jewellery Guide by Era

2. Ceek

Ceek Art Deco Jewelry Reproductions – Large Oval Ring – $50

The antique art deco jewelry by Ceek is uniquely made to replicate the elegant extravagance of the period with a smooth brass band and a large oval-shaped area that’s sculpted and embellished with crystal and a large diamond-shaped topaz gemstone. This piece of antique art deco jewelry faithfully duplicates the original styles, which now retail for between five hundred and a thousand dollars through dealers who trade in antique Art Deco ring designs with Old Miner Diamonds in. Compare with genuine art deco fine jewelry pieces such as those listed with Etsy dealers or with Dover Jewelry – a company that specializes in vintage, antique and art deco estate jewelry.

3. Kenneth Jay Lane

Kenneth Jay Lane Art Deco Costume Jewelry – Oversized Cocktail Ring – $238

When it comes to modern art deco jewelry designers Kenneth Jay Lane is one of the best, incorporating fine sculpturing techniques and gemstone placement with art deco jewelry history to replicate pieces that would otherwise be unaffordable to most women. This particular oversized cocktail ring mimics the extravagant creations made by the original art deco jewelry designers in the roaring twenties but replaces genuine emeralds and old mine diamonds with clear / emerald colored Austrian crystal stones mounted into intricate silver plated sun-bursting geometric designs. With a series of baguette-cut and round-cut crystals, and a large faceted green gemstone in the center, the masterpiece, which measures 2×2 inches, is a splendid replication of vintage jewelry.

4. PDB

PDB Gold Vermeil Minimalist Art Deco Costume Jewelry Ring – $145

PDB are not necessarily art deco jewelry designers devoted to replicating vintage pieces, and although most of their jewelry items would be categorized as unique if not somewhat bizarre, for the most part they’re altogether modern. However, they’ve made a couple art deco jewelry designs that aren’t classic vintage but certainly elegant and geometric. Perhaps the best term for the PDB Art Deco Ring would be “sophisticated”. It’s crafted in gold vermeil without gemstones or crystal, just a large smooth globe mounted in a wide textured band that gives the illusion that the globe is floating without support. This minimalist piece of art deco costume jewelry sits apart from other extravagantly embellished pieces, but is no less striking.

Dahlia Jewels Pearl Drop Earrings

Dahlia Jewels drop pearl earrings from $29 to $80 – lustrous silver, lavender, peach, white and black pearl clusters. Elegant cultured pearl jewelry for brides and bridesmaids crafted in sterling silver with platinum overlays. Genuine freshwater pearls – top AAAA grades, quality mountings – free shipping within the US.

Genuine Freshwater Cultured Pearl Drop Earrings in Lavender

Four lavender oval pearls, in sterling silver mountings, make up this delicate pair of dangling earrings. Falling 1.25 inches from the lobe, these are ideal medium length drop pearl earrings for accessorizing special ensembles or bridesmaid gowns because they’re not overly distracting yet aren’t so small as to disappear.

The hint of lavender color and art deco styling separates these earrings from classic cream or white sets, offering a contemporary element to traditional pearl elegance. Even for those on tight budgets, these earrings are affordable. Buy them alone or pair with drop pearl pendant necklaces and other pearl accessories for a total look.

Buy now and qualify for free shipping within the United States.

42 Pearls in Cluster Earring Designs

Some of the most affordable Dahlia designs are the cluster pearl drop earrings with a total of 42 genuine cultured pearls dangling in groups from sterling silver French hooks overlaid with platinum.

These earrings come in natural white or with tiny black pearls that have a somewhat purple tinge of color. Dahlia Jewels calls these creations Carefree Bunch Earrings, which is appropriate since they resemble bunches of grapes.

Although the quality of craftsmanship is excellent and the pearls are genuine freshwater varieties, the cost of either the white or black drop pearl earring designs is just $29.50.

Outstanding Pearl Jewelry Value

In the same Dahlia Jewels Carefree pearl collection with sterling silver findings overlaid with platinum, are the peach pearl and crystal ones that include quality (AAAA grade) large 8 – 9 mm pearls (and a small crystal accent) and cost $39 (when on sale).

Since these earrings are made with genuine pearls, the colors vary – from soft peach to a deeper pink with iridescent highlights. Don’t let the low price of these creations fool you – these are authentic pearls in quality mountings. Expect excellent craftsmanship and you won’t be disappointed.

Bridal Pearl Drop Earrings for about $50

Another recommended pair in the Dahlia collection is the Isabella Rose. These classic white pearls are large (about 10mm), beautifully set in sterling silver with a small rosebud above each dangling pearl. These teardrop pearls are mounted on leverback findings for a more secure closure. No one would imagine they cost only $52.50 a pair.

These are easy to match with a pearl necklace, bracelet and other accessories in the Dahlia Jewels series, and since the prices are so affordable, it’s not difficult to add these small luxuries to almost any bridal budget.

Simple Drop Pearl Earrings for $29

The simplest Dahlia drop pearl jewelry set is called Pearl Essence and includes a pair of white 7 – 8 mm pearls on sterling silver French hooks with a platinum overlay. These classic earrings are ideal gifts or bridal accents and cost only $29 (when on sale). Pair the earrings with single pearl drop pendants and have a complete set for less than you might imagine.

Why are the Dahlia sets such a good buy? Why do so many customers consistently rate their products as the best quality and value for the price? Because each organic gem is genuine, carefully selected from top grade AAAA freshwater, high luster pearls that are rated 95% flawless, then set in sterling silver findings, rhodium plated, to offer a platinum-like sheen that doesn’t quickly tarnish.

All orders can be placed easily online (using a secure system) and will be shipped for free within the United States (orders over $25). Choose what color pearls you desire, be they peach, lavender, classic white or even black, and indulge!

Buying White Gold Hoop Earrings from The World Jewelry Center

Classic hoops in white gold from $34 to $100. Earrings for everyday wear; huggies and medium hoops with secure closures; fine gold jewelry, low prices, easy online shopping.

14k White Gold Hoop Earrings – .5 inch diameter

Comfortable hoop earrings for everyday wear should be yellow or white gold, not silver or plated metals, but since gold jewelry is expensive, many ladies end up settling for cheap hoops that irritate their ears, tarnish quickly, don’t have proper closures, and in the end may cost more due to having to buy several cheap pairs instead of one good set that lasts. That’s why the pieces for sale through The World Jewelry Center are of special interest. The hoops are well crafted, 14k gold, and have closures that actually work. The best part is that most of their huggies and medium sized hoops are priced affordably between $35 and $100.

One pair of white gold hoop earrings that stands out are the 0.5 inch designs with hinged / notched post closures. Being solid 14k white gold these earrings won’t tarnish or irritate pierced ears, and can be worn daily without worrying about the electroplating wearing off. They’re a nice size and cost under $50.

Another pair of affordable 14k white gold hoop earrings that are practical are the same size as above (.5 inches) but have an endless hoop deign, which can be worn day and night without worry.

1 Inch Gold Hoops

If the above pair is too small, then choose the 1.1 inch size, also solid 14k white gold, with an endless hoop closure system.

These are lightweight but with a little more pizzazz.

CZ White Gold Hoop Earrings

Speaking of pizzazz, not all hoops need to be plain to be comfy and practical. One good option is a huggie hoop with CZ gemstones.

Consider this pair of 14k white gold hoop earrings with seven channel-set cubic zirconia gems in a high polished huggie-style that offers both practicality and a bit of glamour.

There are similar items with a double tier of gems in the same sized huggie style, 14k white gold, that cost little more, or smaller huggies that are .4 inch and cost about $50.

Whether you need CZ white gold hoop earrings, plain endless styles or small huggies that fit snug on the lobe, they’re all available in the fine jewelry collections of The World Jewelry Center, where gold and affordable prices go hand in hand.

Why Buy Duragold White Gold Earrings?

If you’ve been thinking about buying cheap silver earrings, upgrading to white gold for just a few dollars more could save you money in the long run. Pure silver or electroplated fashion jewelry won’t be as durable, whereas 14K yellow or white gold will last a lifetime. Good quality hoop earrings and studs need only be purchased once – so choose gold and benefit from quality craftsmanship, like closures with click tops or friction posts that won’t easily slip off.

The Duragold yellow and white gold jewelry collection is suitable for those with sensitive skin. Many who can’t wear silver earrings can wear these pieces because of quality alloys and lustrous polished finishing. Stud / hoop posts in gold won’t tarnish or turn the skin green.

The small 0.59 inch white gold earrings, in the polished hoop designs, are ideal for wearing everyday. Many ladies find it’s not necessary to remove them at night. However the 1 inch hoops may be removed and a sleeper inserted for nighttime – the ball studs are for day or night and cost only $29 (solid white gold).

Elegant 10K White Hold Hoops with Genuine Diamonds

Add genuine diamond sparkle to your look with these huggies that are delicately polished 10K white gold with a quarter carat of round diamonds prong-set around the hoops. There are a total of 50 genuine diamonds on these earrings, and the snap posts keep them securely in place with a hidden closure. These are sleek elegant white gold earrings that will never go out of style, and are affordable – just $90!

Modern 14K Oval Hoops in White Gold

For some texture and diamond-like sparkle without gemstones, get the oval geometric hoops in solid 14K white gold for under $100.

These are larger 0.75 inch contemporary earrings for casual or semi-formal occasions.

Delicate Tanzanite Earrings for Budget Shoppers

Tanzanite studs with genuine gemstones are affordable. Why? The reason that companies like JewelzDirect can offer stud earrings with almost a full carat of real tanzanite set in silver at reasonable prices is partly due to the fact that they use heat treated stones.

Does this mean they’re not natural? No. The stones are genuine. When it comes to gemstone jewelry, heat treating is considered an acceptable practice, especially for smaller pieces, because it allows less perfect stones to become brighter, clearer or have richer color. Although investment quality tanzanite gemstones will not be heat treated, most affordable jewelry pieces, even those with rubies, will likely be treated with heat. This doesn’t make the stones any less real or beautiful, and for those who would otherwise not be able to afford authentic gems and would be forced to buy fashion jewelry, the heat treated items offer good value.

  1. An example of an affordable pair of tanzanite earrings that has treated stones is the pear-shaped set of studs with 0.30 carat tanzanite stones set in sterling silver.
  2. Another good buy that’s cheap is a slightly larger pair of studs with 0.40 carat oval tanzanite gems, also in sterling silver mountings. These earrings are 3mm high by 4mm in length and have a post / nut back.
  3. A pair that stands out, having almost a carat of tanzanite, is the oval-cut (0.09 carat weight) set in silver. These two faceted gemstones are ideal for ladies who want studs that get noticed yet are very affordable.
  4. A more dramatic pair of genuine tanzanite earrings is the three-stone design with a series of oval-cut gems for a total weight of 2.70 carat set in sterling silver with posts and friction backs, for around $100.

Although a bit larger than studs, these earrings aren’t going to get confused with fashion jewelry because they’re delicate – 21 millimeters in length (just under an inch long).

Amour Collection of Tahitian Pearl Earrings

Black Tahitian Pearls and Diamonds

Although owning a pair of genuine black Tahitian pearl earrings may have been an unaffordable luxury in the past, today’s pearl farm technology has brought the prices of genuine pearls down to an affordable level – not jus for the small Japanese Akoya or freshwater varieties, but also the large (previously elusive) black, grey chocolate brown, pistachio green and golden South Sea ones.

One pair of black Tahitian pearls (that have a silvery gray luster) are part of the Amour collections and cost just under $148. These pearl earrings are accented with diamonds in a motif where a single pearl falls below diamond-encrusted circles and crescents.

Another pair, in a similar price range, is the huggie design with a single chocolate brown Tahitian pearl dangling from a solid 14k yellow gold French clip. This pair costs just under $165. This is an excellent buy for genuine pearls of the Tahitian variety. Notice how the earring encompassed the whole lobe and the secure closure makes it difficult for these to slip off inadvertently.

Here’s a pair of Tahitian pearl earrings in a simple stud design but the beauty of them is in their color – they’re pistachio Tahitian pearls. These pieces are crafted with genuine pearls set in 14k yellow gold and cost just $149.99. That’s the beauty of Tahitians, they come in a wide variety of colors so that the term “black” can mean anything from a rich brown or copper to a silvery gray or greenish pearl.

The pearl stud earrings in the pistachio color are large, between 8mm and 9mm, which is normal for the South Sea gems that are known for growing much larger than freshwater ones. Although studs are usually quite subtle, these are dramatic pieces due to the color. If you’re looking to match these studs with bracelets, pearl pendants, strands of pearl necklaces, bracelets or even rings, the Amour collection has an outstanding series of exclusive pistachio colored pearls to choose from.

For something a bit more affordable than the Tahitian pearl earrings that start at around $150, take a look at the pistachio freshwater pearl earrings in the Amour collection that start at around $35. The pearls are set in 14k gold mountings, but they’re smaller (being freshwater) so they only measure between 6mm and 7mm. The matching pearl pendants are priced at around $90 (for the pistachio ones) and are set in 14k gold.

The most expensive Tahitian pearl earrings are the ones that are really black, or at least as dark as pearls get while still being lustrously iridescent, and the most affordable ones we can find to recommend are just a teeny bit over $200. The black Tahitian stud earrings by Amour are mounted in 14k white gold, and the gems are about 8mm or 8.5mm – simple, classic and very elegant. They’re regularly prices at around $225, but are often on sale for about $202. Check special offers that Amour has on assorted pieces of fine pearl jewelry.

Tarnish Free Sterling Silver Earrings

Tarnish-free sterling silver earrings form $13 to $33; small huggies for kids and teens; larger hoops for ladies; flat, polished, twisted and tube hoops – affordable 925 silver jewelry and free shipping within the US.

Kids and Teens – Non-tarnishing Hoops

These small sterling silver hoops, which won’t tarnish, are ideal for little girls and young ladies. They’re called Knife-Edge Hoop Earrings and they measure just 0.7 inch in diameter. These little earrings are a nice gift at the price. (Not recommended for adults because they’re really small.)

Although some of the cheap silver hoops for kids bend easily and are quite flimsy (especially those priced under $20), this pair of tarnish free sterling silver earrings is a good buy. They’re a twisted hoop that measures 0.8 inch in diameter, so they’re small and great for little girls, but stronger than many of the tube or hammered ones. The silver is tarnish free and the closure clicks and locks into place, so they won’t get lost so easily. Compared with other cute jewelry for children this pair is very affordable.

For a wider hoop, the flat polished earrings in this no-tarnish silver collection are good and priced under $25. They’re small (also just 0.7 inch in diameter), good for teens and children, but some ladies who wear studs or silver balls appreciate having something a little larger for certain occasions. These may be just the ideal pair for having handy when a stud just isn’t quite enough. (These earrings are like huggie hoops for women and drop only a little below the lobe on children.)

Ladies Sterling Silver Earrings

One of the best buys on sterling silver hoops are the hammered ones that measure 1.2 inches in diameter (also tarnish resistant). These are a pair of nicely crafted earrings for women of all ages – ideal for casual everyday wear. Compared to other designs, these tend to stand up better than tubular hoops. The hammered detail adds a nice bit of texture. For the price, these hoops are good value.

A pair of classic 1 inch twisted oval hoops in 925 sterling silver that can be worn anywhere anytime cost under $40. These are highly polished pieces with a click-top closure. They’re strong enough not to bend easily because of the twisted design. Yes, they’re tarnish resistant so they’ll last a little longer.

Basic Silver Hoop – Medium

For basic tube hoop earrings in sterling silver, the 1.6 inch pair is a good size – not too large or too small; they can be worn with casual or semi-formal outfits. These aren’t going to hold up like gold earrings, but for the price they’re good value.

Tarnish free sterling silver earrings are resistant to tarnishing because they’re coated / polished, but they don’t last forever, and the coating will eventually wear off.

If your budget allows, we suggest upgrading to white gold. Have a look at some of the best deals priced between $50 – $100 in the post about 10k and 14k White Gold Earrings.
