I typically gravitate towards one or two necklaces and rings and wear ‘em with nearly everything, BUT I also happen to think that jewelry is a lot like a pair of shoes – you can never have enough. A pair of earrings and a necklace can really transform the look of an outfit, so it doesn’t hurt to have a lot of options on hand if you can swing it. Right?

With that in mind, I rounded up five of my absolute favorite places to shop for jewelry. And in return, I’d love to hear your suggestions too. I always have room to bookmark another.

1. Kate Miss Jewelry

You may know Kate’s brand under it’s previous name, For Me, For You jewelry. The name has since changed but the seasonal jewelry collections you’ll find in her shop are as hip as ever. All necklaces are handmade by Kate in Los Angeles, California.

2. Poketo

Everything at Poketo feels like a tiny work of art, whether it’s wearables or accessories for people and their homes. But lately, I’ve been going to there for jewelry more often than not, to browse the newest pieces from independent designers they carry. Definitely worth a look if you want something unique and fun.

3. Pour Porter

This shop is amazing! Tightly curated, Pour Porter (pronounced Pour Por-tay) is run by a husband and wife in the Denver, Colorado (love that) that work day jobs while running their online boutique. I don’t know how they find the time to do both, but I am so glad they make it happen because I adore this shop. Lots of other cool goods here too, aside from jewelry.

4. Catbird

Okay, okay. Many of the pieces at Catbird are out of my price range, BUT I have so many pieces from this Williamsburg shop on my wishlist I had to include them. The rings are my fave, especially this one.

5. SHIP & SHAPE

SHIP & SHAPE has a great mix of handmade finds from designers and makers you know and ones that you soon will.  The founders invite their favorite artists to contribute exclusive items to seasonal collections to freshen things up at the start of each season. P.S. I have had this necklace in my cart for way too long. I need to just but it already!

Where do you like to shop for jewelry?

Thank you so much for including my shop! So honored to be in such great company!

Thanks for posting, Im always looking for new places to check out jewelry. I can appreciate Pour Porter having to work and run the boutique. My husband and I work together I do all the designs and he handles all the business side. Perfect Yin and Yang. And with 3 beautiful children and him having a day job its an awfully lot of work, but when you’re doing what you love, its never work right?

Of course Kate. Happy to feature your work. Thanks for stopping by.

I love http://www.homako.etsy.com.

A japanese woman who lives in the US. Her stuffs are handmade.

I really enjoy every piece I bought from her shop. Very whimsical design.

I always get loads of compliments whenever I wear her items, even men think they are nice :)

Great suggestion Viria. Bookmarking now! And so true Kelly- if you’re doing what you love it is easier to get the motivation to work on it and feel less like ‘work’. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks so much Brittni! We love working on the shop but it absolutely feels like work late at night after a full day of day jobs, dinners, and animals ;) Posts like this make it worthwhile!

I LOVE that turquoise catbird ring!
My favorite place for amazing jewelry is Erie Basin. Also very expensive, but everything is one of a kind, well curated and gorgeous.
