Ah, Instagram. It’s the place where I find the majority of my fashion inspiration season after season. It’s such a cold take to say that Instagram has had a massive effect on how we shop, but I think it’s worth repeating here: This app is the place to be if you’re looking for a few new pieces to pick up this season—especially when it comes to jewelry. Sure, the celebs and influencers we follow brag about a few pricey brands here and there, but there are also some seriously affordable jewelry brands that have gained popularity on the app over the last few years. Don’t worry—I’ve rounded a ton of ‘em up here for you to shop.
Take Mejuri, for instance. To be on Instagram is to know about (and love) Mejuri’s line of stunning 14k gold and gold vermeil jewelry. The best part about the influencer-adored brand, though, is the fact that none of their pieces will break the bank. They just look super luxurious. Finding a brand that sells timeless pieces at an actually–attainable price point is truly the ideal situation if you’re a total jewelry hoarder. I mean, collector.
But, if you already own half of the Mejuri website and you’re looking to expand your jewelry horizons in 2021, I’ve got you covered. I found a bunch of picks that are all priced under $150 from brands like Luv Aj, Missoma and Melinda Maria that you can pick up right now. I even included a bundle of earrings from cult-favorite brand STUDS that takes the guesswork out of achieving the perfect #EarStack.
Keep scrolling and prepare to be amazed by all of the affordable beauty you thought you had to splurge on. Read on and thank me later!

Mejuri designs affordable fine jewelry pieces that are meant to be worn (and loved) on a daily basis, like this Croissant Dôme Ring in gold vermeil. Stack it with one of their other delicate ring options for an eclectic look. Or, choose from their line of high-quality 14k gold pieces for something that’ll last forever.
Aureum Collective means “golden” in Latin, but they make some pretty stellar silver jewelry, too—and this Bree Bracelet is proof. All of the brand’s gold pieces are plated in 24k gold, which means that they can be both affordable and luxe.
If you’re looking for cute beaded jewelry, consider NYC-based brand Joey Baby. The brand’s range is inspired by the bustle of New York City and the luxe Hong Kong lifestyle, making for a lineup of playful pieces you’ll want to style every single day. You can even customize the lettering on this Manifesting It! Necklace if fame isn’t really your vibe.
If you’re 100 percent here for colorful, bold jewelry this season, you need to check out BONBONWHIMS. Even Ariana Grande is a fan of the brand’s range, with standouts like this Fuchsia Pink Rainbow Lucky Ring. If pink isn’t your color, feel free to pick up a piece that comes in another vibrant hue from the brand’s ’90s-inspired collection.
If you’ve been on Instagram like, at all recently, you’ve probably seen a Luv Aj piece (or several) on your timeline. The influencer and the celebrity-loved brand has created a range of blingy AF pieces that won’t break the bank. Take, for instance, this pair of Pave Carabiner Hoops.
Adina’s Jewels gets its name from the founder’s late grandma, so it’s safe to say that good design runs in the family. The brand’s pieces are either sterling silver or plated in 14k gold, so they’re well-priced and won’t show any signs of aging so long as you take care of them—which is a good thing, because you’ll probably wear this gold ring every damn day.
Behold, a brand with a heart of gold. A portion of every Melinda Maria purchase is donated to a variety of charities that help support women around the world. And honestly, their range of super-affordable jewelry is too stunning to pass miss out on. This trendy mismatched Pearl Charm Pave Huggie Set has me feeling some type of way.
Cult-favorite British brand Daisy London has been making stunning yet affordable pieces since 2009. The range is made for women by women, so you’ll fall in love with the collection in an instant. This boho-inspired Isal Shell Charm Anklet is the perfect combination of beachy and classic.
Missoma has partnered with mega influencers like Lucy Williams, so I couldn’t not mention them on this list of Instagram-approved brands. Yes, some pieces in the brand’s lineup are a bit pricey, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t find some seriously good deals on the site, too! These Mini Claw Charm Hoop Earrings are priced at under $80 bucks and are a great smaller style for a fun earscape.
How cute are these red Iridescent Cherry Drop Earrings? If you love these, you’ll soon become obsessed with I’MMANY, I promise. They specialize in fruit and flower-inspired pieces, so you can’t make a wrong choice when picking out something special with a whimsical, natural touch.
Not only can you buy some seriously cute earrings at STUDS, but you can also get your ears pierced at any of the brand’s locations. If you’re not in the market for a new piercing, pick up one of the brand’s earring bundles instead. This Essential Gold Bundle is discounted down to $94.50 from $126 right now.
The M Jewelers
New York City-based brand The M Jewelers specializes in customized pieces like nameplate necklaces and rings, but don’t sleep on their underrated range of simple chain jewelry. This Curb Anklet, for instance, is a timeless classic that can spice up your go-to heels.
