I was out and about recently when I stopped by Down Under Jewelry on Lower Thames Street. It’s easy to equate a jewelry shop with big spending, and Down Under has its fair share of pricey pieces, but I’ve always found extraordinary affordable treasures there. Sure the popular pieces by Alexis Bittar, Chan Luu, and echo of the dreamer often seen on A-list celebs including Cameron Diaz, Kerry Washington, Gisele Bundchen and Jennifer Aniston are drool worthy, but check out these crystal pave cocktail rings for just $22 (each). With sparkly versions in navy, copper and silver, and a stretchy band, Secret Santas don’t have to worry about getting the size right!
