5 Celeb-Approved Jewelry Brands We Can Actually Afford
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 Kendall, Gigi, Bella, and co. 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 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 it can be yours for under $100.
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 L.A. 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 has been spotted wearing it.

Danielle Guizio has a knack for knowing exactly what the Insta set want to wear, whether it's a sheer turtleneck bodysuit, a cropped terry hoodie, or a delicate pavé choker, which she designs in collaboration with The M Jewelers. At under $100, the necklaces work just as well for a day of running errands as they do on the red carpet (and many of her customers have worn them for both).

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.)

Unabashedly girly 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 fanbase is.

Saint Liz may be barely a year old, but the brand already counts Kylie Jenner and Bella Hadid as customers—and if you're a fan of sparkly chokers (whether a simple row of crystals or a major statement collar), we're betting you'll be tempted to become one, too.
