One of the rudest realizations we have in a post-festive shopping frenzy is the big gaping hole in our pockets and purses! Especially, when we are purchasing different pieces of jewellery to complete each of your looks and overshoot the budget.
But does that mean you will have to restrict yourself from buying appropriate accessories or cut corners by choosing cheap junks off the street? Not at all!
Let us help you with simple budgeting tricks that you can apply on your next jewellery shopping spree. A smart shopper is never guilty of overindulging followed by repeating regrets. Read on.
Pick demi-fine jewellery
Between the fine jewellery made of precious metals and real diamonds and fashion jewellery made of cheap material, there lies an entire another universe of jewellery – the demi-fine jewellery! This jewellery is made of gold vermeil which lends them luster and durability and a close resemblance to precious metal. Often, the gold coating is done on a 925 sterling silver that makes the ornament strong and sturdy. Vermeil also protects the piece from tarnishing or oxidizing easily. You can have all the benefits of fine jewellery but the pocket pinch will be way lesser.
Check out our jewellery collection at Orionz and learn more about the raw material that we use to handcraft these beautiful pieces. If you want to switch to the world of demi-fine jewellery, we are the trusted partners to share the journey with. Our jewellery is all hallmarked by an Indian Government approved hallmarking center.
Online shopping is best
By now we all know that to avoid insane mark-ups of physical brick-and-mortar stores, online shopping is the best bet! And with demi-fine costume jewellery breaking into the online shopping scene with attractive seasonal discounts and nearly 30-50% of fewer margins, it is like killing two birds with one stone!
Also, online shopping can be done at your leisure. You don’t have to sacrifice a working hour to physically visit a shop during their operational hours. With a vast collection covering everything from daily wear to party wear, all your jewellery needs will be met.
Orionz has launched a flat 15% sitewide discount to help you bid financial worries during festival time. The sale will start from 20th October and go on till 7th of November. Check it out here.
Look for family business brands
There is a huge difference between buying jewellery from a corporation and a family-owned business. The biggest being a corporation is mostly a faceless entity and lacks the personal interaction which you will get from a family-run business. Unlike a corporation, a family business doesn’t have to pay bureaucracy or shareholders to keep them happy, resulting in their insane product price.
With family businesses, you will get a whole lot of attention as soon as you become their customer. It is more like becoming a member of the family actually. Their trade practices are also ethical and they live by a healthy ethos of supporting local artisans. At Orionz, we are proud to claim that we merge our three decades' worth of experience in the jewellery business with local traditional techniques and workmanship. Learn more about our story here.
