Under $50: Bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings

Madewell’s Acorn Locket Necklace, $35, is a great vintage find that won’t break the bank. Photo courtesy of Madewell.

Outfits work best with complementary accessories. The problem is (if you are like me), once you’ve bought the outfit, you don’t have much money to spend on the extras: Earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces.

Not to worry, I’ve made a list of sparkly finds that cost less than $50:

Earrings: For some classic, round studs with an edge, go for House of Harlow 1960 Stingray Embossed Sunburst Stud Earrings, $30 at Bloomingdales. For something that has a pop of color to match a whimsical look, check out MARC BY MARC JACOBS Bird Stud Earrings, $48. For elegant gold drops, look at the Lauren Ralph Lauren Long Linear Drop Earrings, $38. If you want something more interesting than the average pearls, try the ‘Santorini’ Small Stud Earrings, $18 at Nordstrom.

Rings: Don’t go for one, get a few with Madewell’s Mix and Mingle Rings, $28. They are fun, sparkly and colorful — with class.

Bracelets: Geometric designs bring a little something extra to any outfit, which is why I like the Cara Pyramid Stretch Bracelet, $38 at Nordstrom. Casual outfits go the extra mile with an accessory like the Cara Leather Bracelet, $38 at Nordstrom. It comes in black, white and brown.

Necklaces: If you want a statement necklace with a lot of color, go for the Ton-Sur-Ton Beaded Bib, $48 at Anthropologie. It comes in blue and yellow and has the power to brighten a bland outfit instantly. For something you can wear to the office or with a T-shirt, reach for Madewell’s Acorn Locket Necklace, $35. If you gravitate toward bohemian looks, the Fringe and Faceted Jewel Necklace by Tinley Road, $36 at Piperlime, might be a good pick. It’s a jewel necklace with a metal fringe. For a chunky, metal look, look at Hive and Honey’s Knotted Chain and Spike Torsade Necklace, $42 on Piperlime.
