Our editors have now picked the top 16 luxury jewelry brands in the world for you. We do not rank the brands in a particular order. Feel free to choose the ones that touch you most.
Nowadays the world of luxury jewelry is no longer referring to jewelry, but the most dazzling and creative works of art. Today’s fashionistas not only wear jewelry to accessorize an outfit, but also to show their unique personality, an independent attitude to life and a passion.
The creativity of the jewelry designer is the soul of a piece of jewelry. Even though almost all of luxury jewelry brands in the world are made from extremely precious metals and stones, jewelry designers from different cultures and backgrounds do have different dreams.
Each of the designer jewelry brands has their own concepts and characteristics. This is why most jewelry brands are characterized by a strong personality. Some are extremely complicated, exquisite, luxurious and expensive, while others are minimalist, low-key and even suitable for everyday wear.
This is also the reason why you can tell the differences between Cartier and Tiffany at a glance. It is all because of the jewelry designer. And it is these differences that make the world of jewelry more diverse.
Here are the top 16 luxury jewelry brands in the world, which are known for their perfectly beautiful products as well as exquisite craftsmanship.
