You'd think with access to some of the most rarefied jewelry in the world, celebrities would be walking around with necks draped in diamonds and fingers wrapped with rings made of nothing less than 24-karat gold—but you might be surprised. Many of the pieces It girls wear on a daily basis are actually fairly affordable.
While sure, they aren't immune from showing off stacks of Cartier Love bangles, most of the everyday jewelry pieces on their Instagram feeds that have caught our eye recently have been designed by indie brands based out of New York and L.A.—and plenty of them can be yours for under $200. Yes, we're talking on-trend earrings, beautiful necklaces, and covetable rings. Read on to get to know five celeb-favorite jewelry brands you can shop without missing your next rent check.
Designer Amanda Thomas started Luv AJ back when she was just 16 years old and in the 13 years since has grown it into a must-shop brand beloved by It girls, bloggers, and celebrities alike. A recent collab with Aussie fashion label Sabo Luxe has been an especially big hit—which should come as no surprise considering how many times Bella Hadid and Sofia Richie have been spotted wearing it.
With a model fan base that includes Gigi and Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Adut Akech, and more, Missoma definitely knows how to attract industry insiders. Plus, you might be familiar with the brand's popular collaboration with influencer Lucy Williams, which sells like hotcakes.
Keep tabs on the new-in section at Adornmonde because the brand is constantly coming out with fresh pieces—think stackable rings, crystal hoop earrings, and layered filigree pendants—that look way more expensive than they are. (Plus, you'll want to scoop them up before Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, or Lily Collins does.)
BaubleBar is the perfect place to find affordable statement jewels like the latest statement-earring trend or the must-have ring designs. We're always spotting celebs such as Storm Reid mix BaubleBar into their jewelry selections.
Unabashedly frilly and not the least bit scared of a little bling, every piece from this Los Angeles–based brand is handmade to order, from customizable name necklaces to slinky crystal crop tops—and all it takes is a quick glance at its Celebs page to see how impressive its fan base is.
