Why does your jewelry look cheap? Let's cut to the chase!
1. Childish themes. Anything with a childish theme will look cheap, no matter what you pair it with. While charm bracelets are a trend now, be careful that the charms do not have a childish appeal. Like teddy bears, hearts and other cutesy shapes will look cheap most of the time.
2. Beads can look cheap more often than not. After all, how can you make a bunch of beads on a string look expensive? Stick to jewelry that has one bead as an accent piece, as opposed to a row of beads, and if you must do beads, pair it up with your boho looking clothing and accessories so that it blends in.
3. Your jewelry is too shiny. A lot of the cheaper jewelry metals are alloyed with inexpensive materials, like plastic, or even painted a shiny coat. Anyone who knows jewelry is aware that real, more expensive jewelry is not super shiny. So, if your jewelry is so shiny, you can see yourself in it, it probably looks cheap, too.
This is just a few ways that jewelry can look cheap. Stayed tuned in the future here at BC Custom Jewelry, as we will share more tips in the future.
