I have been wanting a pair of diamond frame studs, like these. These are 2 ct TW and are $2679.99 at Zales.
I happen to still be on vacation, where my son snapped my beautiful sunglasses in half, so in desperation I went to Target to find a new pair. There is not a big shopping selection in this town. Beforehand, I went to Target's website, where there was a coupon for BOGO 50% Off jewelry & accessories, which was perfect! I also got some for $3 & $5 off Merona & Mossimo items, but didn't use those.
Anyway, in the locked jewelry case, I noticed these babies:
They are $19.99 but were $14.99 in store (and honestly, you don't want to shop on target.com. Many items have 1 star reviews and if you read them, it's for the shipping process alone. It's awful). My sunglasses were $16, so the earrings got the 50% off, saving me $7.50 there and technically saving me about $2600 since I really wanted those other studs for Mother's Day! You really can't beat that. While I love diamonds, jewelry, and being spoiled, I also lose jewelry a LOT and this way, I won't cry when it happens. They look real in person- I sat them next to my 3ct engagement ring and I'd swear the earrings were real too.
There is also a promotion going on where if you buy two "fine jewelry" items at Target you get a $5 gift card on the spot. I didn't spot anything else I liked, which is too bad!
