^^There are lots of styles that are not $1K. Decolletes are around $600, Declics are $700, Pigalles are around $600 too. Not cheap, but certainly not $1000. Also, there are plenty of good finds on ebay for $400-$500.
I know but even those I cant spend at the moment, Im saving for a trip to thailand and paying off a car.. and no one around here would appreciate them anyway so I'll wait till I move somewhere stylish hehe
