"Fine jewelry that's cool and modern and doesn't cost a million dollars is one of my favorite things to come out of the past decade. The epitome of this is Kinn. Everything is 14k gold, and its designs are unique and trend-forward without being too trendy. It's also one of the few jewelry brands I can actually say that I'd wear every single piece from."

Shopping for antique and recycled engagement rings on Instagram is the latest purchasing trend on the rise, both in stories and the grid posts populating your feed. Meaning?

Accessorize with neutral pieces like white-rimmed sunglasses, leather handbags, and pearlescent jewelry. All in all, the combo will make for an ultra clean and crisp ensemble.

These are the core for any necklace stack, your jewelry bread and butter if you will. I have a few thinner styles that I rotate, and then I have a thick belcher t-bar beauty (a 2020 survival gift from myself, to myself). A chain will never, ever go out of style, and they look just as gorgeous layered all together as they do alone. If you want to dip your toes into the fine jewelry pool, this is the perfect place to start.
