Commit These Top Designer Jewellery Brands to Memory

·7-min read

On the whole, jewellery never goes out of style. No matter the decade or the trend, the unique designs of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings have served as both statement pieces and daily accessories. Whether pearl, gold, silver, rose gold, diamond, or something else entirely, a good jewellery piece can stand alone, completing your outfit and adding the right amount of elegance and sparkle. As much as we love our day-to-day pieces, though, we're always on the hunt for new ones to add to our collection; ones we will hopefully be able to pass on as family heirlooms. And so, more often than not, to acquire a piece that will outlast trends and generations, you have to invest in designer jewellery brands.

Whether it's a renowned Cartier Love Bracelet or a classic Mikimoto pearl necklace, there are so many designers elevating jewellery and creating pieces that are worth every penny. To streamline the best designer jewellery brands in the market for you, we decided to put the 13 best in this article. From brands whose clothing you already love (hi, Hermès and Chanel) to labels who've been perfecting their craft for so many years, make sure you commit them to your memory.

1. Tiffany & Co.

Blame it on the classic Audrey Hepburn film Breakfast at Tiffany's, but there's something undeniably timeless about anything from this age-old jewellery designer.

3. David Yurman

10. Van Cleef & Arpels

Suzanne Kalan 14ct Gold Emerald Cut Green Envy Topaz Stud Earrings (£240)
