Fashion Math: Are A Pair of Pearl Earrings Worth Pinching Pennies For A Month?

With all of the ridiculously real looking faux jewelry on the market, it is far too easy to be lured into buying cheap jewelry. While there is nothing wrong with finding a great deal on baubles that look like they’re worth a million bucks, but only cost you a few, it seems that on special occasions I inevitably reach for my best jewelry staples. When we do the Fashion Math, it’s easy to see why buying something you can wear for life has its rewards.

Fash Math EQ

These gold plated Dolce and Gabbana Pearl Drop Earrings ($154) are the perfect choice in pearls; they are simple enough to be worn on any high-profile occasion, but youthful enough you could wear them just to make a date night feel special. Best of all, you only have to cut out something as simple as your morning coffee for a month to save up for this purchase.
