Whether it’s a Rolex passed down through generations or your grandma’s decades-old pearl necklace worthy of Harry Styles, everyone has that one jewelry piece they never leave the house without. For me, it’s a stack of 14k gold necklaces from various jewelry brands currently saved to my Instagram bookmark section. Fine jewelry’s role in our lives shifted from special occasion-only to everyday-wear thanks to a wealth of affordable and not-so-affordable brands who abandoned the exclusivity often associated with 14k. From updated studs to it-girl chains, shop our most-liked list of jewelry designers pavé-ing the way, ahead.
