The 10 best affordable jewelry online stores that won’t break the bank. I love you highstreet, but to be quite honest a lot of your jewelry sucks. I know I shouldn’t complain especially when jewelry is cheap, but frankly many brands do charge considerably high prices for pieces that will turn you green.
One of the reasons I don’t wear much jewelry (rings in particular) is because I can’t stand when they start to stain you after only a couple of wears. I would much rather save up and buy something a bit better quality. I have been on the hunt for a pair of high quality, affordable small hoops for a while now. I have quite a few ear piercings and I want some nice jewelry pieces that I can leave on without irritation.
Hence that’s where this guide comes in handy. I’ve done some research and put together a little list of some of my favourite affordable jewelry brands. You can purchase their pieces from the comfort of your own home and get them delivered straight to your door.
Whether you like delicate and dainty jewelry, simple modern styles or prefer something with a sparkle, there will be something for you here.
10 Best Affordable Jewelry Online Stores 2020…
1. Astrid & Miyu
Founded in 2012 by Connie Nam because she noticed there was a gap in market and a need for an affordable, high quality jewelry brand. Astrid & Miyu is a British brand based in London. They create ‘dainty yet striking’ piece that have been worn by the likes of Georgia May Jagger and Pippa Middleton.
It means so much to me when a brand does something that tries to make a difference and help support others. Soko is an ethical jewelry brand that uses technology as a way to connect Kenyan artisans to a global marketplace.
1928 is a costume jewelry brand that creates unique, vintage inspired jewelry. Many pieces are replicas of some of the most beautiful vintage jewelry from across the world. So if you are looking for something a little bit more decadent or retro then this is the place.
If Santas little elves had a jewelry workshop, the BaubleBar is how I’d imagine it to be. BaubleBar is a fun jewelry brand based in NYC that offers quirky and unique jewelry pieces. They believe you should invest in essentials and play with trends – hence they’ve created the ultimate ‘playground’.
Etsy is an amazing market place that supports small individual businesses. Don’t forget to have a little search on their website because there is so much to discover.
6. Yala Jewellery
As I write this post and do more research I am discovering the importance of making sure your jewelry is ethical. This is why the rest of the brands on this list are only going to be from ethical companies. I watched Blood Diamond the other day and have made myself a promise to never buy a diamond. But I guess the problem is even bigger than we could imagine and affects a lot more of the jewelry industry than I thought. I will write a post providing more information on the topic in the near future.
Yala Jewellery is an African brand and was the first jewelry brand in the UK to become a certified B corporation. Yala is a beautifully authentic company that was founded by Audrey Migot-Adholla. Her vision is to challenge misconceptions about Africa and its people. She works with over 150 artisans in Kenya helping provide fair wages, safe work environments and recognition people. to work to provide gorgeously designed jewelry pieces.
You can expect to find well crafted, unique pieces that are simple yet striking.
7. Voice International
Voice international was set up by Natasha Katumba in 2013 and is based in Uganda. The brands aim is to try break the poverty cycle by teaching men and women how to make jewelry and through offering sustainable employment.
The jewelry available on Rhimani is from an ethical supplier in Nairobi. Again it is fantastic to support smaller businesses that are doing it right. You can read all about it here. ‘Handmade in Nairobi’ consists of beautiful brightly coloured beaded earrings, necklaces and more!
9. Wolf & Gypsy
Wolf & Gypsy sources recycled sterling silver and gold and uses recyclable packaging on all their products. Designed in the UK, pieces are produced in an ethical workshop in India. The brand has beautiful pendant necklaces which would be perfect for layering!
10. Artisans and Adventurers
Handmade jewelry in collaboration with artisans in Kenya and India using recycled and sustainably sourced materials. Artisans and Adventurers has lovely simple jewelry designs that are traditional in craft but have a contemporary edge.
My favourites on the list would have to be Yala and Soko! Have you got any affordable but ethical jewelry brands that you love?
