Commit These Top Designer Jewelry Brands to Memory

·5 min read

On the whole, jewelry never goes out of style. No matter the decade or the trend, the unique designs of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings have served as both statement pieces and daily accessories. Whether pearl, gold, silver, rose gold, diamond, or something else entirely, a good jewelry piece can stand alone, completing your outfit and adding the right amount of elegance and sparkle. As much as we love our day-to-day pieces, though, we're always on the hunt for new ones to add to our collection, ones we will hopefully be able to pass on as family heirlooms. And so, more often than not, to acquire a piece that will outlast trends and generations, you have to invest in designer jewelry brands.
