A fun fact about me is that I’m a bit jewelry-obsessed. I’ve been building my collection of wearable accouterments from when I dragged my parents to get my ears pierced at Claire’s and collected every color of jelly bracelets they sold at Hot Topic. Although my taste in jewelry has, how shall we put it, advanced since the early 2000s, I still feel the same need to adorn myself with all manner of hoops, bangles, and pendants. The only difference is that my approach to accessorizing these days is to buy and wear pieces my future granddaughter would be excited to inherit.

Yep, we’re talking fine jewelry. Of course, a jewelry box that’s filled with nothing but solid gold, precious gemstones, and diamonds is the ultimate goal. But until my bank account and I get to that level, I’m content to daydream about the best fine jewelry pieces I’ll own one day. In case it wasn’t clear, I’ve given this imaginary collection a lot of thought and I’ve curated the ultimate lust-worthy list that’s dripping with diamonds, sapphires, moonstones, and more. Daydream with me? 

Starting out with the classics because our queen Zoë Kravtiz agrees that a tennis necklace is a forever piece.

If I see you wearing this ring, I know you’re a fashion girl.

I wear the plain gold version of these huggies every dang day and I wouldn’t mind a little diamond upgrade.

The kind of ring I would wear every day but treasure for a lifetime.

Stunning from all angles.

This neon enamel is so much fun.

I saw this on the brand’s Instagram months ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.

The anklet to end them all.

An everyday luxury.

Just need somewhere to wear these.

A Hailey Bieber favorite.

You have to what this actually looks like on to get the full effect.

Pinky rings are a total vibe. P.S., Now through 5/31, get 15% off Stone & Strand by signing up for The List, Who What Wear’s free membership program that includes exclusive discount codes and other perks.

When it comes to links, the chunkier the better.

Whoever said fine jewelry can’t also be fun obviously never saw this design.

The perfect intersection of my interests: nostalgia and diamonds.

I’m all for a great diamond ring, but how pretty is this amethyst?

For a little pop of color in my necklace stack.

Why pick between being a gold or a silver jewelry person when you can do both?

Heavy bands are the superior ring shape, IMO.

Timeless and modern at the same time.

I actually said “oh God, yes” to myself when I saw this.

This is a very rich mom bracelet, if you know what I mean.

I really do go mad for malachite.

Handmade by jewelry designer Laura Powers in her Brooklyn studio, this is not your average signet.

Another everyday item I have in the non-diamond version that I definitely wouldn’t hate upgrading with some shimmer.

Never seen a heavy band I haven’t lost it over.

My taste in jewelry typically skews towards vintage and non-traditional as I’ve showcased here, but I’d gladly make an exception for something as timeless as these Audrey Hepburn-inspired drops.

There’s something so unique about this Gatsby-style initial ring..

An everyday staple I can personally vouch for.

For all your subtle stacking needs.
