consumers tend to be very conscious about the weight of their jewelry.
Many women want something that won’t feel too heavy on their fingers and ears, and men don’t want a big rock on their hand that will make daily tasks difficult.
On the flipside, you don’t want something so light and dainty that it could fall off at the slightest bump.
How do you find jewelry that is lightweight without sacrificing style or quality?
Focus on Type of Metal in Jewelry
Look at the metals the jewelry is made out of. A heavier piece of jewelry will usually be made with more gold or silver, and consequently be more expensive.
Gold plated jewelry often offers a lighter metal underneath the gold plating, which leads to longer periods of wearability.
Choose your jewelry’s metal type carefully if the weight of your jewelry is important to you!
Weight and Price of Jewelry
Oftentimes, jewelry weight is associated with the price of the item - the heavier the weight, the pricier the piece!
Heavier pieces are typically better quality and durability because of the amount of metal that is associated with the piece.
If you are unsure about the particular weight of a piece, ask your jeweler at Arezzo Jewelers, they would be happy to help you! We would be able to tell you both the weight of the piece, how it impacts the overall cost, and what other pieces of jewelry in our selection would appeal to you the most.

Intermittent use of your jewelry
Wear your heavier pieces of jewelry intermittently.
Wearing a heavy piece of jewelry consistently can put a wear on your body - especially your ears. In order to protect your ear piercings from opening up, ensure that you are not wearing your heavy jewelry daily. Interchanging your heavier pieces with some lighter pieces will keep your piercings safe and will force your accessory style to change often, ensuring that your fashion stays up to date.
Ask your jeweler if the piece of jewelry is particularly heavy!
