Working in the fine jewelry industry, it’s easy to forget what average people consider an “opening” price. For some jewelers in the ultra-luxury sphere, $10,000 is change. For the rest of us, however, even $500 can be a big expense.

That’s why it’s important to stock fashion-forward fine jewelry styles that many shoppers would consider accessible, especially when it comes to earrings, a self-shopping favorite.

Most of you already know this, but it bears repeating: pearls fit the bill perfectly. Not only are sea-born gems the darlings of today’s fashion world, they also come in budget-conscious freshwater varieties, allowing designers to create high-impact pieces for a fraction of the cost. designs featuring gemstones of similar sizes.

Unlike the simple pearl studs and plain gold styles that once ruled, today’s most coveted designs feature a mix of materials, combining pearls with yellow gold chains, diamonds and colored stones.

Plus, all of the sub-$1,000 options below work equally well for brides looking for wedding day styles that won’t break the bank. (Yi Collection’s delicate asymmetrical pair even meets the “something blue” requirement.)

Promote the styles to your younger clientele as accessible luxuries. And for your wealthier, more established customers, position them as stocking stuffers or spontaneous gifts they could pick up when they’re splurging on something else.
