16 Best Jewelry Brands To Buy If You Love Mejuri

Adulthood comes with some benefits and many caveats – some, like balancing checkbooks and learning to make dishes beyond pasta, are expected, but others, like investing in the best jewelry brands, are often forgotten. But don’t worry, we’re here to remind you.

As much as we love the multipack stud earrings we received from Claire’s in college, high-quality jewelry is an essential part of the newly acquired grown-up uniform. Personally, I’ve been searching for workplace-appropriate jewelry for months in preparation for corporate America’s gray cubicles. As graduation approached, I found myself ditching my $10 plastic pieces in favor of higher-quality classics from high-jewelry brands. As fun as it is to wear my chunky mushroom earrings in bright pink enamel, sometimes you need a timeless piece to incorporate into your wardrobe. Whether worn with a blazer or jeans, everyone needs a good pair of solid gold hoop earrings.

If you’ve been on the internet long enough, you’ve probably heard of Mejuri. The Toronto-based jewelry brand is a favorite with celebrities, influencers and everyday people alike. With a massive range of rings, necklaces, and earrings in a variety of styles and materials (gold vermeil is a game-changer for baddies on a budget!), it feels like everyone and their mother have a piece of the mark these days. But, for those days when you want to explore other brands that exude the same elevated vibe, it can be hard to narrow down all the options available to us.

Don’t worry, because that’s where we come in. Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite jewelry brands (as well as our favorite pieces!) that fall into the three main categories: style, quality, and price.

This New York-based brand is best known for its claspless personalized Forever bracelet, which is soldered onto your body – but its other designs have also taken TikTok by storm.
