I’m not usually one for New Year’s resolutions, but I did commit to one thing at the beginning of this year: no more fake jewelry. Before you write me off as totally snooty, here me out!

I love costume jewelry as much as the next woman, but how much does it suck pulling out your favorite bracelet or ring only to find it’s starting to turn copper-y or even worse, full-on green? I was tired of the heartbreak of having to toss jewelry that I loved, so I decided to start splurging.

Okay, not really. Of course, 10K and 14K gold jewelry is definitely more expensive that vermeil and gold-plated jewelry, but listen to me: it’s worth spending the extra money! Not only are the real gold items better looking, but you’ll actually be able to keep them and wear them forever.

And here’s the even better news: affordable real gold jewelry does exist. Given my commitment to only investing in the real stuff, I’ve found a bunch of great places to buy cheap gold jewelry online. And because I’m a giver, I’m sharing a few of my favorite spots with you. Prepare to have your mind blown.

Szul: This is arguably my favorite place to score affordable real gold jewelry online. Not only does Szul stock lots of authentic 10K and 14K gold pieces, but they also sell real diamond pieces, too. And the prices? Incredible! I’m talking less than $200 for a pair of diamond stud earrings in 10K gold. But the best part of all? Szul does promo codes so you can get their genuine gold and diamond pieces for even less!

Amazon: This one may actually be a bit surprising, but here me out. Amazon really and truly does have great quality gold jewelry. Another reason I love Amazon for jewelry is they have tons of the trendy pieces for less. You know those tiny, minimalist stick studs everyone is wearing? $39 in 14K on gold Amazon! Plus, if you have Prime, they get to you crazy fast. I’m currently stalking this cool 10K double bar ring…

Bloomingdale’s: You may be surprised, but there are real jewelry deals to be head at Bloomies. Yes, really! Here’s my trick: head to the fine jewelry section on the website and change the sort to “low-high.” Right now, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see there are a pair of 14K gold simple ball studs on sale for just $33. Keep scrolling and you’ll actually see there’s quite a lot of cheap gold jewelry at Bloomingdale’s; I’m talking $200 and under!

14K Yellow Gold Open Circle Post Earrings

Vrai & Oro: Last but not least, I have to shout out Vrai & Oro. This is a newer, smaller brand, but they are killing it. Their pieces are simple and minimalist, but so stunning and super high quality. A few things to note: their most popular items sell out fast, so plan on coming across items that have a wait list. My advice: follow them on Instagram. This is where I keep up to date on their newest releases so I can snatch up pieces I love before they sell out.
