One of the easiest ways to elevate an outfit is by adding jewelry. And while a lot of fine jewelry can come at a hefty price (I'm looking at you, Elsa Peretti Bone Cuff), we've gotten pretty good at finding affordable alts that look just as luxe. The right pieces can take an outfit from forgettable to unbelievably chic, and I took the liberty of scouring the internet for them. From J.Crew to Nordstrom, I found pieces that are both impressive and under $100. There's a variety to peruse from, so you'll find something here that fits your preference. Jewelry is a key factor in figuring out your personal style, so these pieces will do the job of updating your outfits to the next level. 

Ahead, you'll uncover the curation of some of the best pieces I found while scrolling myself and from other editors' recommendations. From trendier drop earrings to classic hoops, I've covered all the bases. Keeps scrolling to give your jewelry collection an update.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
