Most Wantedis a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 30 fashion and beauty finds on their current wish list.
No matter the trends, no matter the season, and no matter the occasion, the one thing that always stands the test of time is my adoration for unique jewelry. While it’s possible to regret adopting that new trend or for the newest piece of clothing to become lackluster, the wardrobe staple that never loses its shine is jewelry. I’ve amassed quite the collection of pieces. In fact, some loved ones may argue that I have too much jewelry. Despite the lack of space in my jewelry box, I always seem to find new items that I can’t stop thinking about. Yes, some are dreamy diamond pieces, but as an editor, I know that there is a plethora of affordable costume and demi-fine jewelry brandsthat make pieces worthy of any collection. Don’t believe me? Ahead, I’ve rounded up the best affordable, unique jewelry under $300. Some are pieces I own, some I dream of, and some could be yours…
Not to play favorites with my jewelry collection (they’re all my babies), but this single earring from the AAPI-owned jewelry brand Svnr is up there for me. I love how unique it is and that it’s made in NYC from upcycled materials.
Tell me that these are not the most unique pearl earrings you’ve ever seen. From the sculptural silhouette to the mix of blue beads, shimmering crystals, and faux pearls, everything about them makes them a jewelry collector’s dream.
