JEWELLERY is getting bigger, bolder and… weirder. We show you where you can get this season’s most coveted bling for less.

We all secretly (well maybe not so secretly in my case) want those giant neck cuffs, skull rings, ear cuffs and ear spikes that are dominating the runways at the moment. After all, Gothic chic is in, darlings…

But who really wants to pay a pretty penny, or in some cases a lot of pretty pennies, for something that doesn’t fit into the “hand down to the next generation type” jewellery category?

Here is how to get the look, without blowing the bank. I can’t, however, promise that the minds of your friends, family and casual admirers won’t be blown when they hear that you got these crazy critters for under $100 each!
