besides turning your skin green, most of the cheap stuff contains toxic chemicals or heavy metals and is made in China where there are few if any safety standards.
Throw in typically over-priced shipping and "90% off msrp!!!!!" headlines, and you see where the hate comes from.

Can't prove or disprove the "chemicals" etc. comment. I can say, without a doubt, most all of it is UGLY.

What they ↑↑↑↑↑↑↑ said says it all.

Hmmm. Three brand new accounts, held by folks for whom English is a second language, all posting here to defend Chinese jewelry sites. And two of the three have (here or on other threads) thrown URLs for the same Chinese website into the only comment they've made, oddly enough both using tinyurl to mask the site's address.

Sock, sock, and sock?

@videowallart: There's a difference between "fashion" (aka "costume") jewelry and "fine" jewelry. I buy a fair amount of fashion/costume jewelry; it's often seasonal and sometimes faddish; it's not expensive, I may well toss it out next year, and it doesn't try to be something it isn't. What we mostly see advertised here is possibly risky fashion jewelry being hyped as if it were fine jewelry, complete with over-the-top MSRP notations and outrageous statements about how much the seller is discounting the price..

It's not really just a matter of semantics when someone offers "cheap" jewelry instead of "inexpensive" jewelry.

Wow, I sure messed-up. I thought some of the cheap jewelry was cute. I didn't realize how into things some of you are. I'm just a country pumpkin but have been on this site since it's inception and have learned so much from y'all. I want to thank everyone for my newfound knowledge.

It gets voted down because nobody wants fake jewelry. Why get fake jewelry when you could have the real stuff. My mom used to buy jewelry in Phoenix, AZ. There were always good deal that was quality grade material. http://biltmoreloanandjewelry.com/collateral-types/jewelry
