If you love to be bejeweled—you’ve come to the right place! For any jewelry lover, there’s nothing better than gleaming rings or sparkly earrings. If you’re like me, you might often compromise buying “nicer” jewelry for that value pack of faux diamond earrings at TJ Maxx that will lose their luster within a few weeks. However, finding quality jewelry that both lasts and complements your outfits is one of the best investments you can make for your wardrobe. So, skip the Instagram jewelry ads, because we’ve curated a list of brands creating quality pieces that you’ll look (and feel!) amazing in. Read on as we delve into the allure of demi-fine pieces, reveal our favorite jewelry creators, and share some care tips.

Does Metal Matter?

The answer—yes! Many of us (hopefully) come to a point where we’re sick of jewelry turning our ears or fingers green. While the categories of jewelry types are vast, we’re skipping past cheaper costume jewelry and expensive luxury jewels to focus on demi-fine jewelry. AKA, everyday wearable jewelry that is still well made and affordable. You can find anything from delicate and dainty chains to intricate rings made from either gold-plated silver or low-carat gold. Demi-fine jewelry looks fabulous but is still accessible from a budget standpoint—a major win-win!

Before we get into our favorite brands, here are some ways to wear your bling as well as popular styles:

  • Chunky Jewelry: Dainty is still in, but chunky, maximalist jewelry styles have stepped onto the scene. We especially love a good chunky ring stack.
  • Mixed Metals: Gone are the days of team silver and team gold. Get creative by styling both colors into your jewelry.
  • Bows and Pearls: Thanks to the coquette trend, bows have almost become a piece of jewelry themselves. Style them with pearls for that “soft-girl” vibe. 
  • Layered Necklaces: The more, the better! Choose differing lengths, textures, and widths when layering.

Care Tips 

Caring for your jewelry should be a standard part of your wardrobe maintenance. To keep your pieces looking good as new, follow these rituals:

  • Gentle Cleansing Rituals: Treat your jewelry to gentle cleansing rituals, using soft brushes and mild, non-abrasive cleansers. For delicate pieces, a mixture of lukewarm water and mild soap can work wonders.
  • Storing: Separate pieces to avoid scratching, use anti-tarnish strips for silver, and purchase jewelry boxes with individual compartments.
  • Regular Check-ins: Inspect clasps, settings, and fastenings to ensure their integrity. 
  • Careful Removal: Unless specifically waterproof, remove your jewelry before you shower, swim, or workout. It's a small act that safeguards your investments.
  • Avoiding the Elements: Exposure to harsh elements can dim radiance. Protect your pieces from chemicals, extreme temperatures, and excessive sunlight. 

These brands are truly worth their weight in (low-carat) gold, so we hope you check them out! Be mindful of materials, trends, how to care for your jewelry in order to get the most effective wear. If you ever feel bored with your clothes, you probably don’t need new items, just quality pieces to elevate and tie your looks together.
