15 Gorgeous Pieces of Gold Jewelry Under $100
These price-conscious pieces are the perfect addition to any jewelry collection.
Valentine's Day is around the corner, and the pressure's on to buy your SO the perfect present—one that acknowledges the immeasurable love you share 365 days a year, and not just on February 14th. So no, that singing teddy bear from your local grocery store isn't going to cut it. Gold jewelry is a classic Valentine's Day gift for good reason: it's timeless, versatile, and its sentiment lasts longer than a box of chocolates (admittedly not hard to outlast, to be honest).
But there's a major difference between buying a piece of jewelry and buying the right piece of jewelry—especially when you've got champagne taste on a decidedly beer budget. Do you go with a classic pair of hoops or a chic floral barrette? No matter what your budget is or what your SO's style may be, we've got you covered with 15 gorgeous pieces of gold jewelry you can buy for under $100. And for even more great presents for that special someone, check out our list of 15 Valentine's Day Gifts Your Wife Will Love in 2020.
