Since engaged couples are feeling the pinch of the recession, faux diamonds – or CZ jewelry – are becoming a hot trend in wedding accessorizing. With CZ jewels, brides can have the “bling” without sinking their budgets.
Uche Unachukwu of Chicago has launched a line of affordable wedding jewelry on her website, GlamForless.com. Each item in the collection costs less than $200. The 36-year-old entrepreneur said she wanted to create an accessible line of jewelry for brides and bridesmaids.
Guests will never tell the difference if a bride dons a few pieces of faux diamonds that go with her overall look. Also, CZ jewelry makes a great gift idea for bridesmaids.
