Unsurprisingly, demi-fine jewelry has been popularized by forward-thinking Gen Zers and young millennials. Celebrities like Jin from BTS, S.Coups from Seventeen, Meghan Markle, and Kaia Gerber are all fans of demi-fine jewelry for everyday wear. The demand for demi-fine jewelry has increased exponentially in the past few years. While fine and costume jewelry brands have been struggling, a new crop of demi-fine jewelry brands are enjoying immense success.
The new generation of jewelry shoppers are more mindful about their jewelry purchases.

What Is Demi-Fine Jewelry?
Demi-fine jewelry is an increasingly popular category of jewelry that is created with premium quality materials, yet sold at an affordable price point. Demi-fine jewelry hits the sweet spot between fine jewelry and costume jewelry. The luxurious appearance and excellent quality resembles a fine jewelry piece, but the price tag won’t leave you shocked. Although some pieces may be considered investments in the high hundreds or low thousands, they will always feel more attainable than a piece of fine jewelry that can get in the five-figure range .
The Benefits Of Wearing Demi-Fine Jewelry
Demi-fine jewelry is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to begin building a high quality jewelry collection without breaking the bank. Maybe you’re tired of costume jewelry that quickly loses its gems and turns your skin green. Maybe you want to give a quality piece of jewelry to someone that you love, but you aren’t prepared to spend a small fortune on it. Whatever the situation, demi-fine jewelry is a breath of fresh air in an industry that has been polarized for so long.
What Characterizes Demi-Fine Jewelry
You may be thinking that demi-fine jewelry sounds too good to be true. How can jewelry have an affordable price point without sacrificing its quality? Trust us, it’s very much doable. It’s all thanks to the choice of materials and clever craftsmanship.
Demi-fine jewelry combines genuine quality metals like sterling silver and 14K gold with precious and semi-precious gemstones to provide a level of luxury comparable to fine jewelry. The secret of demi-fine jewelry’s affordability lies within advanced vermeil plating techniques. Demi-fine jewelry pieces will often use sterling silver as a base, and 14K or 18K gold as a coating. This winning combination provides the durability and prestige of precious metals, yet allows jewelers to sell the pieces at lower price points. It truly is the best of both worlds.
Demi-Fine Jewelry vs. Fine Jewelry and Costume Jewelry
Now that you know the defining features of demi-fine jewelry, you may be wondering what exactly differentiates it from fine jewelry, and costume jewelry.
Fine jewelry is generally made from solid gold, sterling silver, platinum, or other precious metals. It features coveted precious stones like diamonds, rubies, and sapphires. The high content of precious metals and the use of expensive gemstones provide durability and quality, but they also come with a hefty price tag.
Costume jewelry is created with a cheap base metal, like nickel, and is then flash coated with a thin layer of gold or silver. This is why costume jewelry is prone to fast discoloration and can cause skin irritation. Costume jewelry is cheap and cheerful, but it never lasts for long.
