With a knack for repurposing, and a passion for artistry, Melinda Maria turned her childhood obsession — making jewelry from whatever she could get her hands on — into a successful global brand. The designer takes pride in creating gorgeous pieces that make women feel "beautiful and confident.” Her rings, necklaces, bangles, cuffs, and earrings feature lots of delicate filigree, glittery gemstones in striking color combinations, uneven edges, hammed textures, and asymmetrical shapes. With a list of celebrity fans that includes Kate Hudson, Eva Longoria, and Nicole Richie, it's no wonder Maria has been dubbed "Hollywood's Bling Queen."
Add a brilliant pop of color to your look this fall with statement pieces from bold names like Alanna Bess, Bounkit, and Soixante Neuf. Choose from beaded pendant necklaces, drop earrings, charm braclets, and geometric cocktail rings, marked by distinctive gems, from rainbow moonstone and green agate to pink amethyst and smoky quartz.
Show off your layering skills this season with delicate jewelry pieces to mix and match for a look that’s all your own. Charm pendants are made for piling on with your favorite sweaters and button-downs — just keep the lengths varied for an balanced approach. And your fingers and wrists are the perfect black canvases for stacks of wrap bracelets, bangles, and intertwined rings.
Give a nod to the season with candy-colored gems, oversized flowers, and clusters of crystals.
