Five Places to Find Unique Jewelry

Do you feel like you’ve gotten into a rut shopping at the same old shops? Or maybe you love the jewelry you already have but want some fun, funky pieces to shake things up once in awhile. If you’re feeling fresh out of ideas, here are a few suggestions for places to look for that next fabulous piece of jewelry.

The Internet: Finding fashion jewelry online can be fun and easy with a seemingly endless supply of styles to choose from. There are plenty of online fashion boutiques to choose from. Try websites like for homemade products by independent designers like Reckless Crush, many of which are one of a kind. Look for fashion earrings online as there are a practically unlimited amount of styles and price ranges to choose from.

Antique Shops: Don’t just go antiquing to find furniture. Many antique and thrift stores sell used jewelry. This can be a great way to find a period piece, or even just something that you wouldn’t see at today’s jewelry stores. It can be fun knowing that you have a piece of jewelry that has a lot of history. Some stores may even have the back stories that go with particular items.

Garage Sales: If you’re feeling energetic, hit the garage sales on Saturdays or Sundays. Most of the time, you may not find anything of interest or any quality pieces, but you never know when you might come across something really spectacular or something unique that you absolutely love.

Friends: I don’t know about you but I have quite a few girl friends that are pretty crafty in their free time. If you haven’t already been lucky enough to receive any homemade jewelry for Christmas or a birthday, try asking your friends if any of them are into making jewelry. Sometimes people have hobbies that they simply never bother to mention, even to their close friends. Another tactic to try is to ask any friends that you know are traveling in the near future to look for some great jewelry while they are on their trip. Most tourists find it fun to shop for their friends—especially if they know you want something specific. You can also offer to pay for an item if you have something expensive in mind. Of course this brings me to my last suggestion for finding distinctive jewelry.

Travel: Never mind asking your friends! Taking a vacation soon? Or need an excuse to plan one? Many tourist destinations have great shopping options and as a bonus you can get something that none of your friends will have!
