The Dollar Jewelry Store, located in the Richmond Plaza next to LifeWay Christian Store and across the parking lot from Staples, offers a wide selection of affordable jewelry in every color, size, and shape.

“The store is constantly changing,” senior Kara Saulsbury, an employee, said. “We get shipments in every week. Items come and go. It’s really refreshing to not have to stare at the same things everyday.”

Located in the front of the store are all kinds of rings. Over to the left, right, and back are bracelets, necklaces, and earrings ranging in a gamut of color-coordinated rows.

“Almost everything is a dollar. There is some more ‘expensive’ jewelry,”  Saulsbury said. “The purses and sunglasses and wallets are more than a dollar, of course.”

Standing in the middle of this rainbow of eye gaping jewelry are racks upon racks of purses and handbags for $20 each. The left-front corner contains sunglasses and wallets for $5 apiece. It can be especially helpful

“I bought an outfit because I was going on a date with my boyfriend the next day,” senior Karrah Gilbert said. “I went in there and got a ring and a pair of earrings. It was perfect [for the outfit] and really cute.”

The jewelry in the Dollar Jewelry Store has been well received; not only do they have racks of colorful, unique jewelry, but the jewelry itself is inexpensive.

“I got five bracelets for $5,”sophomore Madeleine Russell said. “It’s worth its price.”
