Luxury jewelry, or fine jewelry, deserves a separate niche in jewelry trends. Some may say it is a waste of money, others will call it a sound investment. Regardless of where you stand, it’s always in your favour to stay informed. One day this knowledge may come in handy and here is precisely why that is…
The most popular brands with the best designs and luxurious pieces are: Harry Winston, Buccellati, Van Cleef And Arpels, Graff, Tifanny & Co, Piaget, Chopard, Cartier, Bvlgari and Mikimoto. It’s a large list, so we will talk about the brands with the most beautiful designs and surprising prices.
Settle down, it exists. There are those who live it and understand it and there are those who do not (the same way opinions on purchasing luxury jewelry items differ). The ones who do, form a collective appreciation and develop a desire for finely made things which involve bit brand names. The bottom line justification is that owning luxury jewelry items defines good taste, class and success. The female population has liberty in terms of displaying this messages in their jewelry choices, and sadly men are stuck with a few options (a watch being the most prominent one).
Social etiquette plays a role in this reasoning and mostly relates to business and social situations. Strangers tend to judge you based on visual indicators. Every fashion and jewelry choice you make speaks volumes and strangers come to conclusions before you have a chance to shower them in your amazing personality. To be taken seriously, you must look serious and therefore – embezzle yourself via fine jewelry/priceless watch.
As for the men (with limited choices of accessories), your watch means everything. Your watch tells others more about yourself than you think. So choose wisely! To choose the best watch based on the latest trends, I recommend you to read this informative post: ”Men’s Watches”
Are these arguments convincing? Before you jump to conclusions, I invite you to scroll through the galleries of the top luxury jewelry brands. Other factors come into play. Aside from outstanding reputation, these brands nail it with their designs. It is likely that the jewelry you own resembles some of these big brands. Which leads me to believe we can all appreciate luxury jewelry items for the sake of inspiration.
Luxury Jewelry Brands
Established in 1884, Bvlgari is a leader in the world of luxury/fine jewelry. Based in Rome, the brand is known for integrating innovation with traditional styles. Some of the distinguishing traits are bold shapes, colored gem stones, bright statement pieces and a touch of the classy Italian staples.
Over the time they have also introduced fragrances and watches. Earrings in white gold with precious stones can cost us 2000 euros, proving that their jewelry is still a real luxury.
Olivia Wilde is one of the greatest admirers of Bvlgari. In the photo we can see her with a beautiful necklace of carnelian and diamonds. She looks good!
Harry Winston tops the list for the classic and grandiose diamond jewelry. The brand uses only the finest and rarest stones with incomparable craftsmanship. Founded in 1932, Winston continues to deliver unique luxury jewelry items with the most elaborate designs.
Small earrings with a pair of diamonds, are priced at 3800 euros. I know it’s a lot of money, but there are people who save money a whole year, just to buy something of this recognized brand.
Charlize Theron caught everyone’s attention on a red carpet when she weared an expensive diamond necklace. The design emphasizes her face and the cut of the dress.
The impeccable craftsmanship, excellence, quality and style has attracted customers since 1860. Cartier’s signature is the panther, which has been ordered by the Duchess of Windsor herself. Staying true to their Art Deco roots, the brand promotes their pieces with a touch of exotics, gracefulness and femininity.
Currently, Cartier has stores around the world, so a ring with diamonds can be around 2000 euros. It is one of the most used brands by celebrities in luxury events.
Laura Bailey’s extravagant emerald and diamond necklace is a great example.
Van Cleef & Arpels:
Inspired by nature’s spontaneity, Van Cleef and Arpels is the brand of elegance and grace. Based in France, the brand continues to push the creative boundaries with their ingenious designs. Each jewelry item tells a story (if you pay close attention).
It is a luxurious brand with excellent quality. So a ring with pearls, emeralds or diamonds could cost more than 20000 euros.
Although this is a photo of the 2015 Academy Awards, we can see a Margot Robbie wearing a classic style necklace that costs over 1 million euros. Amazing, right?
World renowned for the quality of its Italian gold, Buccellati designers are also known for their magical touch in giving jewelry a fabric effect. Since 1919, the brand has stood true to its heritage, and a distinguished Roman style.
As for their prices, we could say that they are in a “medium” term. A brooch with brilliants in the center costs about 4000 euros.
Model Elisa Sednaoui is known for using this brand in several times. In the photo you can see her in an exquisite look.
The founder of Piaget, George Piaget, started his business making watches and spread his influence through Europe. The brand preserves touches of the Old Hollywood; sophistication, whimsical and elegant statement pieces, and bold, floral designs.
Their prices are also quite high. Their watches are over the 20000 euros.

Tiffany & Co:
Since 1837, Tiffany & Co has been known as a household name, selling versatile classics. Slightly whimsical, definitely feminine and definitely elegant; the jewelry items are ideal for daytime and formal occasions.
This well-known brand reached its greater popularity thanks to the film of Audrey Hepburn, “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”. The jewelry that runs out is the one with prices between 400 and 800 euros. There are other pieces that are more expensive like the bracelets with small diamonds with a cost of 1600 euros.
I want to end this post with a photo of the beautiful Kate Winslet with a jewelry set of Tiffany, which, by the way, matches her style.
