I Have Fine-Jewelry Taste But an Under-$100 Budget—These 30 Pieces Impressed Me



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.

Jenny Bird is an all-time favorite jewelry brand here at Who What Wear.

I can't afford a designer cuff, so this is at the top of my wish list right now.

The earrings our readers can't stop buying.

This will make your next beach outfit a 10/10.

After I saw these on TikTok, I ran straight to my nearest Target. I've been wearing them with almost every outfit ever since.

Another version of this has already sold out, so start making moves on this beautiful one.

Although these look heavy-duty, Anthropologie's earrings are very lightweight to prevent any discomfort.

If you're not one for additional piercings, add an ear cuff to switch things up a bit. 

If a regular cuff is too standard for you, this wavy option offers the same look with a more unique touch.

This chunky ring will look excellent stacked next to your everyday jewelry.

Earrings or a work of art? I think both.

Why be team silver or gold when you can be both?

Imagine this necklace with a sleek black tank and white trousers. Add a red lip and you've got the "expensive" look down pat.

I'll take it in both metals, please.

Hint: On-sale jewelry at Nordstrom sells very quickly.

Bringing arm candy back, one bracelet set at a time.

A perfect way to start stacking rings if your collection is a little sparse.

I'm telling you. Don't sleep on Target's jewelry selection. You'll find some hidden gems.

Zara's jewelry can be a hit or a miss, but this one is most definitely a hit.

Minimal but still makes enough of a statement on the neck.

Another under-$100 cuff proving that you don't need to empty your bank account to buy one.
