Holiday Gift Guide 2023: The Best Celebrity-Loved Jewelry Brands

Sparkle and shine like an A-list star this holiday season (and beyond!) with these celebrity-approved jewelry brands. From layered necklaces and statement rings to everyday earrings and dainty bracelets, these are the top dazzling selects you can gift your loved ones (and yourself).

Dean Davidson

Canadian designer Dean Davidson is revered for crafting eye-catching jewelry with a global framework, thoughtful sourcing of gems, and hallmark brushed finish to all his creations. Davidson says that travels inform the basis of his inspiration and every collection is designed in their Toronto studio. “Every piece is hand-sketched in-house and sampled to perfect each design, producing iconic, signature features,” he explains. Additionally, the brand is committed to empowering independent artisans. Dean Davidson partners with manufacturers in Jaipur, India (specifically those who created jewelry for the Royal Family) to ensure quality and beauty for every item made. With all of these considerations, it is no wonder that celebrities are drawn to the brand, “it’s a great alternative to fine jewelery, and our unique designs make a perfect choice whether on the red carpet or in your everyday life,” says Davidson. Coveted pieces include Emily Blunt-approved Mini Ipanema Earrings; Eva Longoria in the Plaza Ring and Mini Plaza Ring; and Demi Moore in the Pearl Droplet Earrings.

Biko

Creative director and founder Corrine Anestopoulos says that her jewelry manifests the power self-expression and identity of the wearer. This sentiment is layered with the rich tapestry of the world we live in. “We draw inspiration from the beauty of nature, contemporary art, architecture, and travel,” Anestopoulos explains. Additionally, she also makes annual visits to Greece to visit her 96-year-old grandmother in her village home. Their enduring connection also informs Anestopoulos’s designs that evoke strength, emotional conviction, and resilience. The heartfelt sentiment of Biko has captivated the attention of beloved celebrities where Laura Vandervoort has been seen wearing these Paradiso Drops earrings in gold and Paola Dusters earrings in silver; Alessia Cara in these large Rio Hoops in silver and Alton Chain in silver; and Shakira** in the Molten Ring in Gold and Galina Ring (medium size) in gold (**note: the initial pieces she wore have been sold-out but Corrine recommends the similar selections above).

Mejuri

As a third-generation jeweler, co-founder and CEO Noura Sakkijha revolutionized the industry by empowering women to make their own high-quality jewelry purchases (rather than succumb to the traditional marketing model of men making such big ticket buys). As pioneers of the ‘drop’ model – the fine jewelry industry has been forever changed as unique pieces and collections are debuted weekly by this Canadian cult-followed brand. Mejuri has resonated with countless celebrities of which include Ariana Grande who loves the Bold Pearl Trio Hoop Earrings and the Essential Pearl Earrings; Selena Gomez who was seen sporting the Pyra Large Hoops; and Madelyn Cline seen wearing Pyra Medium Hoops in Silver. Justine Lançon, Chief Creative Officer for Mejuri adds that all the aforementioned pieces are also appealing to everyone due to stylish design, price point, and use of different materials: “there’s something for everyone and anyone.”

Olaeda

Founder Talia Massaroni says that her modernist jewelry can be seamlessly interwoven into your life. “All of our pieces are made with 14k gold-filled or solid gold (they’re never gold-plated), ensuring a long-lasting love story,” she explains. With quality and longevity in mind, their hand-crafted pieces are ideal for everyday wear. Additionally they’re an ethically-minded brand: “Our manufacturer is accredited in the Signet Responsible Sourcing Protocol; a certified member of the Responsible Jewelry Council; and compliant with the Dodd-Frank Act Compliance policy, verifying a conflict-free, anti-money laundering, sustainable, and transparent supply chain,” Massaroni adds. Moreover, her perspective is uniquely dynamic and it informs her design philosophy: with a degree in medical science and working in the healthcare industry for over two decades before deciding to pursue her passion project, Olaeda in 2022 – her jewelry is as cerebral as it is aesthetically captivating. While the brand is still in its infancy, it has already landed on the radar of high-profile people like tennis star, Bianca Andreescu who wore the Monogram Medallion Necklace while doing press for her Roger’s Cup win.

Ali Weiss

Ali Weiss Jewelry was founded in 2005 with the intention of crafting pieces imbued with meaning. Designer and Founder Ali Weiss is known for her signature earstyling, but is always evolving to help women creatively curate their own unique looks. As a fan of mixing and matching, she says that when it comes to curating your own style, there are “no rules, anything goes… I take pride in infusing a sense of fun into high-end styles while maintaining an unwavering commitment to luxury quality.” Celeb-selects include Lindsay Lohan-approved Gold Dome Ring with Single Diamond; Taylor Swift wearing this Double Pave Diamond Band Cuff Ring; Ashley Graham wearing Baby Pave Hoops with Diamond Drops; and Sophia Bush donning this statement-making Thick Ribbed Band with Diamond Line. Weiss adds that there’s something for everyone: “We offer a range of options to suit every budget. With the majority of our items readily available in stock, you can enjoy a seamless shopping experience, as we ensure swift shipping within 2 days—making your (holiday) gift selection both quick and effortless.”

İTÄ

The brand is a synergy between friends, designers, and co-founders Inesita Capó (who hails from San Juan, Puerto Rico) and Äfet Burcu (from Istanbul, Türkiye) whose jewelry celebrates the combination of their backgrounds, culture, and passion for travel. “We create motifs that are different and eye-catching, yet subdued for any look. Celebrities, aside from appreciating wearability and fine design, also love promoting smaller brands with purpose. They can connect with our story of honoring our cultures and some, even connect with the heritage behind the brand,” explains Capó. Taylor Swift was seen wearing the brand’s ‘Eternal’ Tuxedo Pave Ring with black and white diamonds; Kate Hudson is a fan of their ‘Coa’ Champagne Diamonds and Garnet Ring; Kate Bush loves their ‘Caona’ Bomba Ring (a play off a classic ‘bombe’ aesthetic); and Ziwe was sporting these piercing Buenos Dias! ‘Luz’ Earrings.

Monbouquette

Mother-daughter duo Jenny and Lily Monbouquette spearhead innovative design and sustainable practices with their line. Both believe that jewelry should be clever, effortless, and fun. The company adds that their materials are all environmentally mindful: “We use 23.5 karat yellow gold (that is ethically mined), recycled yellow bronze, and recycled sterling silver.” Jenny and Lily also assert that their pieces are incredibly versatile, “the convertible elements in our pieces are appealing to celebrities and anyone on-the-go, from daytime power lunches to evening soirées and travel. Our core collection of patented designs are made to transform from a subtle everyday look to a bold statement piece with just a touch.” Inspire your jewelry style with these Trois Bubble Drop Earrings worn by Emma Roberts; Joey King and these chic two-way Pearl Hatch earrings; convertible Petite Cucumber Earrings adored by Shay Mitchell; and this Petite Nuni freshwater pearl necklace loved by Camila Cabello.

Christina Caruso

Parsons School of design graduate Christina Caruso’s jewelry line had a meteoric rise due to its debut in the original hit series Sex and the City and being worn by Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw. To this day, Caruso echo’s the show’s sentiment of female empowerment and for it to be manifested in all facets of one’s life. As an artisan who is based in New York City, she works with recycled metals to create timeless pieces that add a signature flair to your wardrobe. Caruso describes her brand’s spirit as bold, iconic, and glamorous: “I design for the modern woman. A bold woman is clear about who she is, what she wants and where she is headed. I design with intention and work with female artisans in NYC to create unique pieces that are wearable sculptures. Jewelry as art.” This holiday season, shine bright with this Drew Barrymore approved Palm Leaf Earrings and these Bezel Set Shell Earrings composed of recycled brass, capris shells, and 14K gold plating. For some everyday beautification, choose this Italian Chain Necklace that is rhodium plated and has been worn by Suki Waterhouse.

By Pariah

Founder Sophie Howard creates wearable art for the global woman. She founded her jewelry line in London in 2016 – much of which was inspired by a National Geographic article: “… it was about the Pariah parts of the Caribbean… the brand is built upon a love of untouched, raw materials. Using only the finest natural resources, 100% recycled gold or sterling silver and untreated natural gemstones and diamonds, each piece of jewellery celebrates an individual journey,” she explains. Take notes from Hailey Bieber who loves the brand’s Sabine Hoop Earrings; or these Curve Hoop Earrings worn by Kendall Jenner.
