Do you agree that if it's cheap then it isn't good, and if it's good it can't be cheap? We vote for it too. 

But while you nod your head in agreement, let us tell you— you can still bag some necklaces in fine jewellery that won't burn a hole in the pockets! 

While they aren't cheap as the fashion jewellery, they are quite affordable for regular luxury. 

Difference Between Fine Jewellery And Fashion Jewellery 

Both adorn your finger, ears, neck, or wrist, but there are key distinctions that affect their value, longevity, and overall look. 

Fashion Jewellery:

  • Focused on keeping up with the latest trends and incorporating a wider variety of materials and styles like: bold statement pieces, playful charms, or colorful beads.

  • While some fashion jewellery may use gemstones, they're often less expensive varieties or simulated stones. Basically, the emphasis is on creating an eye-catching design and not the material used.

  • They're made with less expensive materials like plated metals (e.g., gold-plated brass), plastic, glass, wood, or fabric. This makes them accessible for everyday wear and trendy looks.

  • They're not as durable as fine jewellery and can tarnish or break more easily.

  • Designs often change with the seasons and  trends, offering a variety of options to keep your look fresh.

On the other hand…

Fine jewellery is like a piece of art you can wear. It's crafted with precious metals like platinum, gold, or sterling silver (92.5% silver). These metals are known for their durability and resistance to tarnish, ensuring your piece can be cherished for generations. 

Precious gemstones like diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds are often the show stealer in fine jewellery. These stones are mined, cut, and polished with meticulous care, and their quality is often graded and certified by gemological institutes (like GIA, IGI, SGL).

Hence, unlike fashion jewellery—fine jewellery is an investment. The value comes from the materials, craftsmanship, and the potential for the piece to become an heirloom.

But Which is The Right Choice For You?

Fine Jewellery: Ideal for special occasions, milestone celebrations, or when you want a piece that will last a lifetime. It's also a great investment if you appreciate the craftsmanship and value of precious metals and gemstones.

They are most popular for wedding and engagement rings, gemstone necklaces, or to exude luxury.

Fashion Jewellery: Perfect for adding a touch of personality to your everyday outfits or keeping up with the latest trends. It's also a budget-conscious option for experimenting with different styles.

Example: Cufflinks, bead bracelets, and chunky pieces.
