28 Pieces of Unique Jewelry I'd Buy Regardless of Current Trends

Opinion: jewelry is one of the most personal items you can wear. So while I'm definitely one to follow jewelry trends when I feel like it, the most meaningful pieces I own, and the most satisfying to wear, are the ones I can't find just anywhere. Maybe they have a quirky touch or incorporate a rare stone or maybe they're monogrammed with initials or custom designed. Whatever the case may be, they're unique and feel true to my personal style.

Nothing against jewelry trends because like I said, I do wear a good amount of trendy pieces. But today's roundup is all about those one-of-a-kind pieces that stand apart from the rest. From sculptural-shaped rings to colorful charm necklaces and mixed metal chains, you're about to discover 28 examples of what I mean when I say unique jewelry. Add any of these to your collection and I can almost guarantee you'll receive lots of compliments and "where did you get that?" questions.

I'm convinced that Roxanne Assoulin's entire collection of colorful baubles is immune to trends.

Yep, the stunning (and sustainable) earrings that graced our August cover star Samara Weaving are, in fact, under $100.

Anklets aren't just a summer accessory if you ask me. They're a way of life.

If you're into sculptural jewelry, put this London-based label on you radar, stat.

If I didn't know where this was from, I'd assume it was a vintage find.

Unique enough to feel special but classic enough to wear every day (at least, I do).

Yes, chain links are hot right now, but the daisy closure is what sets this one apart from the rest.
