While we love a great bang-for-the-buck bargain as much as anyone, jewelry is typically not the category of fashion for major discounts. Prices are what they are because of valuable materials, the manual labor involved in crafting a special piece, and the premium brand power. Nice jewelry is definitely not an impulse buy when you're sitting on the couch, bored and shopping on a Tuesday evening.
