WHERE I SHOP FOR AFFORDABLE JEWELRY
Since I don’t like to wear a lot of jewelry, I gravitate towards simple, dainty and AFFORDABLE pieces. I tend to only buy gold jewelry because I think it looks best with my olive skin tone. I try my best to take good care of each piece so it lasts awhile. That means, I don’t sleep in them or shower in them, and store them away from the sun so they don’t discolor. I suggest you do the same, people!
Below are my favorite jewelry brands that are all affordable! If you know of any that I didn’t include, please share – I love adding to my collection.
Mejuri, one of my absolute favorites, have simple, classic pieces that pair well with any outfit. Their Pearl Hoops are one of my most worn pair of earrings and I am happy to say they look as good as new, even 2 years later. I also love their Twist Ring – it’s delicate, yet stunning.
Caroline of Shop Bofemme is a local NC jewelry creating the prettiest bohemian inspired pieces. I have these Staple Earrings, this Ray Necklace Cuff, and this Crystal Lariat Necklace and plan to add these Rainbow Earrings to my collection soon. Her pieces are easy to wear and require no thinking or planning as they go with everything.
We’ll thank Facebook ads for introducing me to Local Eclectic. Ryan was sweet enough to gift me two pairs of their earrings for Valentine’s Day. I wear these Solid Gold Diamond Studs in my 3rd hole and never take them off, since they’re real good they won’t tarnish. I also have these Gold Chunky Huggie Hoops which give off a vintage vibe.
I spotted Shashi on a blogger years ago and stalked these Anika Huggies for months until I was able to snag a pair. Even though their pieces are delicate, they are unique and interesting with a cool girl, bad girl flare.
SHOP CUPCAKES AND CASHMERE
Shop Cupcakes and Cashmere, an ecommerce shop started by blogger Emily Schuman, carries a lot of pretty jewelry, including my favorite dainty hoops, The Scarlett (in 9mm), which I wear in my 2nd holes. Emily never takes off her jewelry (not recommended, haha) so I know that any piece I buy from her shop is well made and will last me awhile.
WIND BLOWN JEWERLY
Another local jewelry brand, Wind Blown Jewelry is handmade right here in Wake Forest. Her jewelry is inspired by simple lines and shapes and best of all, they do NOT tarnish (even in water) since they are 14K gold filled. I picked up their Faithful Ring at a local pop-up and have to take it off. Also, $32 for a ring that won’t tarnish is bananas.
Miranda Frye is a pretty well known jewelry brand amongst influencers. I recently treated myself to this London Bracelet and love the texture and length. You can also get 10% with code MFTRIBE.
I hope this makes shopping for jewelry much easier. If you buy anything you love, send me a DM and share the love!
