10 Budget-Friendly Jewelry Brands You Will Love

We all know that wardrobe staples like a white T-shirt or black ankle boots are the closet mainstays upon which we build the rest of our outfits. But what about accessories? When it comes to jewelry, you should think about your staple pieces in the same way. Are you reaching for a stack of rings or a signature necklace each day? If jewelry isn't a huge part of your getting-ready routine, you could be sabotaging your outfits in the long run since accessorizing is the key to making your outfits look like you put much more thought (and money) into them than you really did.

Now, let's talk jewelry staples. The good news is you don't have to spend a fortune on stylish pieces like gold charm necklaces, signet rings, and dainty earrings. So today, we're sharing the affordable jewelry brands we swear by for the cutest pieces that will help us wear the latest jewelry trends. Whenever we're on the hunt for a new piece to add to our collections, these 10 brands are our first stops. Just below, you'll find your next dainty cuff, statement earring, or gold coin necklace.
