Top Emerging Jewelry Brands To Know

by | Apr 22, 2023 | Fashion


CFDA: Jewelry is one of the most personal fashion purchases you can make. A craft rooted in sentiment versus seasonality, it is often designed to last a lifetime and can add an extra personal touch to an outfit. Our attachment to these pieces only grows stronger with time – especially when they’re passed down to future generations.

There is a new generation of jewelry designers creating such personal pieces from every material – and at every price point – imaginable. Take a look at some of our favorites.

Bernard James ‘Fungi’ collection




Brooklyn-born and raised Bernard James started his namesake label in 2010 with a small men’s offering, and has since expanded the collection to include something for everyone. James utilizes fine metals and stones for elevated creations that are both traditional yet personal. The brand’s ‘Family Portraits’ campaign, which has featured creatives such as photographer Quil Lemons and CFDA member Christopher John Rogers, has established his brand as an exciting community-driven label for heirloom pieces with a modern twist.


DYNE Jewelry




Prior to launching DYNE, Sarah Ysabel Narici worked with some of the top names in jewelry, including Stephen Webster, Marina Bulgari, and CFDA member Lorraine Schwartz, and trained with some prestigious design houses on Place Vendome in Paris. A graduate of Central Saint Martins and of the Gemological Institute of America, she has received numerous awards, including scholarships from Cartier, Swarovski, and International Talent Support. It’s no surprise that the designer’s one-of-a-kind jewelry creations, which combine ancient history with a futuristic design perspective, have become highly desirable.

Uniform Object jewelry




David Farrugia was born with creativity in his blood. Raised by a family of engineers and artists, the multi-disciplinary artist launched his first product line at 18 before founding Uniform Object, his collection of avant-garde fine jewelry and objects. Founded as an outlet for his artistic expression, pieces include a hand-carved mammoth bull skull ring and baroque Tahitian pearl necklaces with diamond-encrusted caps. The line is filled with unique, jaw dropping creations.

Beepy Bella jewelry




As soon as Isabella LaLonde launched Beepy Bella in 2019, her surrealist designs went viral and could be found on every virtual corner of the Internet. Inspired by childhood fantasies, magic, fairies, and mushrooms, LaLonde’s creations combine pearls with glass beads, pioneering a kitschy jewelry aesthetic that celebrates youthful expression. The designer has also collaborated with Adidas on shoe-jewelry pieces, a clothing capsule with Tyler McGillivary worn by Madonna, and a trucker hat collection co-signed by Dua Lipa and Post Malone. No wonder she has a cult-online following and fans like Pete Davidson and Bad Bunny.


Her Children jewelry




During the height of the pandemic, model Jack Broadnax tapped into his entrepreneurial spirit to launch Her Children. Born out of the desire to find high-quality jewelry without the heavy markup, Broadnax launched the collection in 2020. The brand’s chains and signet rings have struck a chord with consumers, including fans like Angus Cloud and Finn Wolfhard, and stores including Kith and Saks Fifth Avenue.


Brandon Hurtado Sandler jewelry shot by Lumia Nocito




It’s not hard to recognize a Brandon Hurtado Sandler piece. The designer’s jewelry has become a staple piece among New York’s downtown fashion set. The brand is best known for its more unconventional styles, including earpins, lip rings, and even hat piercings (part of a special collaboration with knitwear label Verconiik). The custom jewelry creations that incorporate vivid gemstones feel like mini pieces of wearable art.


Maggi Simpkins jewelry




Maggi Simpkins understands that jewelry is an especially intimate craft. The artist has spent the last decade creating distinctive, custom pieces for her clients that leverage fine metals and precious gemstones for one-of-a-kind creations that are made to be passed down to future generations. Her specialty remains in her narrative-driven approach to design, creating jewelry pieces based on their stories and character. From her studio in Los Angeles, Simpkins creates jewelry to last.

Bagatiba Bead Collection



The jewelry brand prides itself on its mission to create timeless jewelry ethically, responsibly, and sustainably – all of which it accomplishes without sacrificing quality. Founded by actress and entrepreneur Jessie Andrews, the line has become adored by celebrities including Kaia Gerber and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who are frequently spotted adorned in classic pieces from the cult-label.
