Jewelry is the icing on the cake of the perfect outfit — you can't make a full look of it, but you can pile enough on to really make a statement. Spend all you want on your baubles, but we really appreciate jewelry that is fast and cheap, and also trendy and now, but not in a way that only lasts a month or so. We've scoured the Internet for the best accessories that all clock in well under $50. Be your preference heavy necklaces, whisper-thin rings or even statement anklets, we've got you covered.
