Celebrities are everywhere. We see pictures of them on the television, on the internet and in magazines. Even radio personalities talk about how they look, what they are doing and, more importantly what they are wearing. These movie stars and musicians have the money and the access to the best of everything in the world of fashion, jewelry and high-end living.

Most of the pictures of celebrities feature them dressed and accessorized to the nines, thanks to their well-paid stylists. In the real world, most people admire their style but don’t have the money or the access to their higher- end fashion or jewelry; but that doesn’t mean you can’t emulate your favorite star’s signature style. If you see a piece of jewelry on a celebrity, chances are other companies have made similar pieces at affordable prices. Knowing where to look and how to shop for your favorite accessories is a skill every woman should master. To help you get started, we have picked out a few A-list celebs wearing beautiful jewelry and offered and less expensive yet equally stunning alternative.

Mariah Carey is an international icon. She has been dazzling audiences worldwide with her singing for over a decade. Everyone who ever seen a picture of her knows that she loves butterflies and almost always is seen wearing a breathtaking diamond-crusted butterfly ring. The infamous ring costs thousands of dollars. So; if you like the ring, why not find one that has a similar look for less.



Everyone was still talking about Natalie Portman’s gorgeous ensemble at the 2009 Oscars. She owned the red carpet in a pink Rodarte gown and dazzling diamond accessories by Kwiat. Her simple yet stunning Kwiat solitaire studs looked radiant and classy. You can recreate this look with a pair of our classic cubic zirconia studs that are just as brilliant at a fraction of the cost.

Nicole Richie has come full circle in her signature sense of style. The former Hollywood wild child is now a mother, fashion icon and bonafide jewelry designer. Her casual style can be described as bohemian chic but she definitely knows how to channel a classic, old Hollywood look. Pictured here with boyfriend, Joel Madden, Richie looks beautiful in a layered pearl necklace. Joolwe.com’s Imitation Pearl Necklace is a gorgeous way to achieve her look for less.

Anne Hathaway was the breakout star of 2008. Her films were box-office gold and she even earned an Oscar nomination for her role in “Rachel Getting Married”. Fashion houses and magazines are even taking notice of her star power and fashion sense. Her red carpet looks appear in hundreds of publications and millions of people want to emulate her style. At the premiere of her film “Get Smart”, she wore an edgy pair of marcasite drop earrings with a flowing gown. Those earrings probably cost a small fortune, but why pay high dollar when you can achieve the same look on a smaller budget. 

Remember, shopping on a budget doesn’t mean that you should sacrifice style. Browsing through your favorite magazines for the hottest trends in fashion and then searching for a similar look for less is a great way to cultivate your unique sense of style.
