Marilyn Monroe is dripping in diamonds...or are those CZs?

Although diamonds would be the ultimate luxury gift, sometimes it’s also okay to be spoiled with a few CZs. These are my top picks for lower end options…

    Nice to see that your expectations aren’t too steep from a cost standpoint ;-)

    Lovely diamonds though

      Keep a look out at H&M and Forever21. Those are often great places to find these kinds of things. And you really don’t feel bad if you lose them because they’re a lot (and I mean majorly!) more affordable than Harry Winston.

    I really like this pair of diamond earrings. The price was good. The color and the size was pretty good. This was my first time purchasing jewelry from Amazon and I was very impressed with the quality. The earring backs were a little small so I replaced them with better snap on backs that I obtained from my private jeweler. You cannot beat the price.
