Jewelry That Makes a Statement

Nothing pumps up your work wear like a signature piece of jewelry. For everything from dainty necklaces to eye-catching studs that set your look apart, take a peek at these inspired, independent jewelry lines.

The Limited: Proof that you don’t need to spend big bucks on bling, The Limited has a slew of affordable, chic necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings. Go bold with cascading chains or put on a pair of pearls for a pulled together look. (

Destiny Ray Jewelry: Look to Portland-based designer Destiny Ray for simple, organic silver pieces that give your look a subtle shine. From cascading, hammered silver-disk earrings to an open-circle necklace, these pieces each have a one-of-a-kind feel. Destiny will even tag specific pieces, like her Word Necklace, with personalized inspirational phrases to encourage you to follow your own—you guessed it—destiny. (

Fallon Jewelry: Super-size your accessory style with a piece from this chunky, punky jewelry line from New York City designer Dana Lorenz. Lorenz originally made waves with her head-turning Fenton line; this more affordable spin-off features reclaimed ivory and vintage charms incorporated into brass and sterling pieces. Every piece from polished brass bangles to an oversize ring has everyday appeal whether you’re wearing a slick suit or your weekend jeans. (

Listen Lady Jewelry: Brooklyn-based dishware designer Lorena Barrezueta makes porcelain wearable with her new, conversation-starting Listen Lady line. The sign-language letter pendants come in five styles in basic black or white and arrive adorned with your choice of artwork: the American Manual alphabet, or a love, peace, fist, thumbs-up, or thumbs-down sign. Slightly cheeky, yet still entirely office-appropriate. (

Miriam Merenfeld: Venezeulan born designer Miriam Merenfeld customizes each of her pieces to tell an individual’s story. Thereby giving them personal significance, while at the same time intertwining the beauty of semi-precious stones and metals. Her most popeular pieces are the monogram necklaces. Her style is classic and chic. (
