Welcome back to our budget week series! Everyone shops on a budget, even if that budget is “unlimited.” This week we want to highlight some of our favorites in our most popular categories, so you can see just how far your dollar goes with Raymond Lee Jewelers and Diamonds by Raymond Lee.
To wrap up this week, we want to focus on some of our favorite fashionable pieces. Note – these aren’t fashion jewelry. They’re fine (click here to read about the different kinds of jewelry!) Rather, they’re pieces that we love for adding to your jewelry collection for a touch of added edge, personality – a little extra something.
So we rounded up some of our contemporary favorites. Fun patterns, creative use of colored diamonds, funky rings and (of course) a dash of designer make these gorgeous pieces our favorite fashion forward jewelry under $5000.
