We get it. It can be hard to find quality jewelry when you’re working with a limited budget.

Sure, you can find some super cute affordable dupes on places like Amazon, but they usually don’t last particularly long. Clasps break, varnishes wear off, and stones fall out.

So, if you’re ready to step up your jewelry game, we’ve got you covered.

We found five really great independently-owned jewelry brands that are both beautiful and affordable.

Whether you’re looking for something classic, whimsical, or statement-making, you’re sure to find the perfect piece below — and for less than $100!

If you’re looking for fine jewelry with a sustainable twist, Linjer should definitely be your go-to. Started by a husband and wife team, Linjer uses recycled gold and silver, ethically-sourced gemstones, and lab-grown diamonds.

Linjer has a ton of really beautiful pieces perfect for both everyday and special occasions. And the prices couldn’t be better: there is a huge selection of rings under $70 and earrings and necklaces under $100.

Two of our personal favorites? The Moonstone Ring ($52) and the Pearl Huggie Hoops ($67)

The Needle and Button Earrings ($88) and the Double Trouble Button Drop Earrings ($75) are particular standouts.

Despite being a part of the slow fashion movement — which can often lead to higher prices — you can find plenty of earrings and bracelets for less than $100.
