Love These 2018 Jewelry Trends at San Jacinto Mall

Plus, Valentine Day Gift with Purchase and Prize Drawing

Jewelry is a popular gift for Valentine’s Day but giving something that sparkles doesn’t have to break the bank. Costume or “fashion” jewelry can be hard to differentiate from fine jewelry yet a fraction of the cost. Many of today’s jewelry trends are ideal for costume jewelry.

The difference between fine jewelry and fashion jewelry the quality of the metal used in the jewelry and the authenticity of the stones set into the pieces. This is reflected in the price.

“Whether you’re looking for fine or fashion jewelry, you’ll find classic pieces as well as hot trends at every price point at San Jacinto Mall’s jewelry stores,” said Mary Evans, General Manager of San Jacinto Mall. “Bring in an outfit and the staff at our jewelry stores will help you accessorize it perfectly. If you’re in the market for fine jewelry, like an engagement ring for a Valentine’s Day surprise, bring your questions! Our fine jewelry stores will educate you so you’re comfortable buying what will become a family heirloom,” Evans added.

FINE VS. FASHION JEWELRY

Fine jewelry—made of gold, platinum, and natural gemstones—is often considered an investment to be passed down through the generations. For life’s milestones, such as engagements, weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, fine jewelry is the gold standard.

Fashion jewelry is constructed with plated metal and manufactured gemstones or rhinestones. It first appeared in the 1930s and has been a fashion-forward way to embellish an outfit ever since. It’s all over the fashion runways every season.

Both fine and fashion jewelry are available in San Jacinto Mall at Gold Chest, Icing by Claire’s, Jewelzz Corner, Romeo’s Jewelry Repair Shop, TT Jewelry, and Zales. JCPenney, Macy’s and Sears also have extensive jewelry departments featuring both fine and fashion jewelry.
