Ladies, I have stumbled upon a gold mine. Most literally.
Guys, if you’re broke but still want to let her know you love her, keep reading.
I must confess, this was the first time I have visited Aliexpress (www.aliexpress.com). My only other contact with the website resulted in utter annoyance when it would randomly pop up and advertise products I really didn’t care about. It interrupted my movies, and that’s unacceptable. That being said, I gave the website a second chance and took the opportunity to raid it for jewelry items. Now, I believe I have discovered heaven. My flea market. My go-to for this kind of stuff. A jewelry galore, if you will.
Follow the links in the description of images to be taken to the website where you can purchase your new jewelry.
First things first, RINGS.
Do you know why I don’t own any, except the ones I received as gifts? Because it’s a waste of money. With Aliexpress, these minor pleasures in life don’t have to be. All under $5!
Do you know what I like about these? They look retro. But not retro enough. I would purchase it, go outside, and rub some quality dirt on it. You know, for a truly ‘antique’ effect. They’re a little too shiny for my taste right now.
$4.59 – $6.56
Are you tired of waiting for him? Has your man STILL not purchased you that engagement ring? You’re an independent woman, get that credit card out and spend $5 to see what it would look like if he did.
If you feel like a queen without a man, this could be a good option. You can rub it in some dirt as well if you’re not into the whole shiny, polished look. Engagement rings aren’t jewelry trends, although it seems to have become ‘trendy’ among my peers according to Facebook.
$0.96 – $1.60
On a cooler note, these knuckle rings are ace. I didn’t make a typo by the way, they do cost less than a dollar. All of them.
If you want to look a little more posh for less (I’m aware of the irony here), go for these.
$2.39 – $2.69
I think this set is sophisticated. If it came in gold, I’d take it. To keep up with the ‘structured gold’ trends.
The picture does not fit the product from the link, but it’s similar. I’m that type of blogger that is very bad at keeping track of sources. I just get so excited to share stuff with you guys, I take screenshots. I think this is chic and therefore a must have item.
On a similar note…
$2.42 – $2.48
I told you this was a trend! In fact, this could even be your first item that falls under that category. A fringed chain necklace.
$0.79 – 1.07
These are fashionable. They’re gold, and I would consider the geometric shapes ‘structured’. They also come at the price of gum.
Crystals and gold. All yours for under $5. If you ask me, these look pretty legit.
$0.78 – 0.83
If you’ve always secretly wanted ear cuffs but were too afraid to admit it to yourself or spend that extra money on something unnecessary, this is your chance. I see chains. These are fashionable. They also cost less than a piece of gum.
$0.71 – $0.86
I won’t lie, I don’t know what these are called but I’ve always wanted one. I’m not sure why I thought the Hunger Games would be appropriate here. If you’re a fan or you like any of these, follow the link below the image.
According to Aliexpress, this is a men’s Byzantine bracelet. I beg to differ. I would purchase it in a heartbeat. I don’t think it should be assigned to one gender, it’s clearly a unisex jewelry item. It’s a chain, kind of like a bicycle chain. I like it, very fashion forward.
I’ve mentioned crosses will be a trend for next year, seems like they’ve been around for a while. So get on it!
$1.39 – $1.99
More crosses! This bracelet is a little juvenile for my taste, but for you might be into this kind of thing.
$1.63 – $1.92
A chained bracelet. I’m not sure how ‘in’ this one is but I do like it’s belt-like appearance. If it came in gold, I’d take it!
$2.79 – $3.99
If this one came in gold, I’d take it! Very Tiffany & Co.
That concludes my review of Aliexpress jewelry items under $5.00. I lied, as you can probably tell, these are not the top 10 Aliexpress jewelry items, but I got carried away and I don’t think it should be deemed as ‘misleading’. I’m now a happy online shopper with about 20 items in my basket because I want at least half of the things on this list.
Lastly, I would like to add that any intelligent human being would infer that although these items are great, I do not guarantee quality nor have I done ‘quality control’ on these items myself. Although, sometime in the future I think it would be fun to purchase and test these items for quality by means of destruction. Perhaps a video blog?
Let me know what you think.
