The perfect piece of jewelry can pull together any outfit, but if you’re styling cheap, costume jewelry, it’s bound to break or rust at some point. However, not everyone has the budget to invest in high-end pieces, especially because giant jewelry brands like to bump up their prices.

But thanks to lesser-known fine jewelry brands, you can get the same quality pieces without the additional markup. Here are five fine jewelry brands to shop if you want long-lasting, affordable pieces.

La Kaiser Wish Pendant $130
Gorgeous stones, dainty styles, and affordable prices — what else can we ask for? La Kaiser, founded by Cindy Kaiser, offers a wide selection of jewelry including pendants, earrings, and rings that are unique yet timeless. Each piece is designed and manufactured locally between Chicago and Los Angeles and donates a percentage of profits to charity. We especially love the Wish Pendant because it combines various stones for an eye-catching piece.

Stone & Strand Tiny Diamond Open Huggie Earring $95
Envisioned as a haven from the stuffiness and pretension of the typical fine jewelry shopping experience, Stone & Strand was created for the modern and in-the-know woman with a love for detail. Taking inspiration from the power of femininity and New York women, the endless number of elegant and high quality styles makes them one of our favorites (just look at those adorable earrings!).

AUrate New York Mini Wrap-Around Ring $380
AUrate’s goal is to offer extravagance in a simple way (without the retail markup, of course) and the ability to shop outside of typical department stores and boutiques. So whether you want a statement cuff or a versatile necklace, AUrate has it all.

Vrai & Oro Trillion Diamond Earrings $645
You can feel good about your purchases with Vrai & Oro. Their products are always ethically and responsibly made, but that doesn’t detract from their quality selection. Not only that, the brand cuts out the middleman to offer customers gorgeous jewelry pieces at affordable prices – just look at those earrings!

Mejuri Diamond Necklace $290
Mejuri tops the list when it comes to minimalist jewelry brands, and they believe luxury is something that should be accessible, fun, and part of your everyday life. Mejuri works with top jewelers who commit to exceptional craftsmanship and ethical practices to produce amazing jewelry – similar to this chic diamond necklace.
