Commit These Top Designer Jewellery Brands to Memory

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.

Best jewellery brands: @lefevrediary



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.

If you didn't know, chain jewellery is a big trend for 2020.

2. Cartier

Another classic brand is Cartier. Get yourself one of its iconic Love bracelets or something classic such as a necklace.

Not a TSA-friendly bracelet, but still very pretty.

A necklace that will last forever.

3. David Yurman

David Yurman emerged onto the scene in 1980, but that hasn't stopped it from creating pieces destined to be in your jewellery box forever. If you're buying your first piece, go for something that feature's the brand's signature rope-style twist.

4. Mikimoto

If you aren't familiar with Mikimoto, it's about to become one of your favourite designers. The Japanese jewellery brand's founder is known as the first to create cultured pearls, which means you know that this brand will have some of the best out there.

We're always down for pearls. 

You can never have enough pearls.

5. Bulgari

If you're looking for something that feels more exotic than your classic gems, Bulgari's pieces feel like those Cleopatra might wear if she were alive today.

This is easily one of the coolest rings you'll have.

We're loving the fan-like pendant on this necklace. 

6. Harry Winston

Could there be anything more lust-worthy than something from Harry Winston? As the brand responsible for some of the most famous diamonds to date, there's no doubt any piece from the designer is worth the investment.

The shinier, the better.

Price available upon request from the brand.

Opt for a classic diamond in a pear shape.

7. Hermès

When it comes to luxury, no one does it quite like Hermès. Sure, you know the brand for its signature Birkin Bag, but it also has some amazing jewellery worthy of a spot in your collection, too.

8. Chopard

Perhaps you've become familiar with Chopard with its luxury watches, which feature the brand's signature Happy Diamonds. Well, its jewellery equally as cool. Whether you opt for a piece that features the Happy Diamonds or not, these pieces are sure to stand out.

If you're looking for a pair of jaw-dropping earrings, these are for you.

9. Chanel 

No matter what you get from Chanel—whether it's a classic handbag, a ready-to-wear piece, or something else—you know it'll be the epitome of chic. If you're looking for something to wear every day, embrace the famous fashion house with a shiny bauble.

This ring is a forever piece.

10. Van Cleef & Arpels

French luxury jewellery and watch designer Van Cleef & Arpels carry a unique, old-school touch to all of its pieces. If you aren't sure where to start, get yourself something that showcases the brand's classic Clover motif or a simple bracelet to wear with all of your ensembles. There's no going wrong here.

11. Alex Monroe

Alex Monroe is known for its nature-inspired jewellery, which continues to stand the test of time. Most fashion editors have the designer's bee pendant in the jewellery collections, which, although delicate, has become one of the most iconic pieces in British jewellery. 

This necklace comes in two sizes, so you can take your pick. 

Inspired by the night sky, these earrings will look elegant with any updo. 

The initial pendants continue to be best-sellers for Alex Monroe. 

12. Annoushka

Proof that fine jewellery can have a playful side, Annoushka's pieces are colourful and glamorous, but not unwearably so. Glittering plentifully with diamonds and precious gemstones, each of the brand’s pieces is handmade from the highest quality materials.

Pink and green always look chic together, but this combination is perhaps the best we've seen. 

Curated ears have never looked better with Annoushka's single hoops. 

13. Suzanne Kalan

Though Suzanne Kalan launched her jewellery line back in 1988, the pieces she creates along with her daughter feel distinctly "now." The pair explore colour and form with their jewellery, finding beauty in uneven clusters and vivid colours. 

If you buy one piece from Suzanne Kalan, make it the brand's iconic cluster ring.
