Online Jewelry Worth Buying

Buying high quality jewelry online can be overwhelming. You can’t see or feel the pieces, so how do you know if they’re good quality? Thankfully, direct-to-consumer businesses that allow customers to shop for fine jewelry online are on the rise — and they not only save money, but also cut out nebulous middleman practices. With all the companies out there, these are some of the best online jewelry stores for finding budget-friendly pieces that are still stunning.

Mejuri offers a fine jewelry collection that’s meant to be lived in daily. While the pieces look luxurious and highly crafted, nothing is too precious — or too expensive. The company also sells wedding bands and engagement rings.

Mejuri uses 80% recycled gold in its creations, and even offers an entire line of recycled gold pieces. The price point for the jewelry is generally under $500, short of some diamond jewelry. We dare you to stop at one piece.
