Last year I certainly took a pause shopping for clothes, but recently I’ve been eager to add to my ever-growing jewelry collection. Whether it’s a nod to minimalism with stacked signet rings or a more maximal look wearing statement chokers layered with ornamental pearl necklaces, I’ve been piling on the jewelry more than usual. Perhaps it’s because I’ve discovered so many amazing online jewelry brands that design affordable pieces under $200 that look much more expensive than their price tags.
The brands and designers I’ve been shopping are based all around the globe—from London and New York to Paris and Mumbai. Their fresh takes on jewelry tap into all of the season’s trends and are a sound investment if you’re looking for unique, quality pieces on a budget. Each is also well-worn among the celeb and influencer set who are constantly photographed wearing their designs. Below, see the 8 brands I think are worth adding to your list, and shop my picks from their collections.
