We already know the big names in the luxury jewelry industry— Cartier, BVLGARI, and David Yurman are just a few of the leaders in designer duds. But while these brands are dazzlingly glamorous, they're extremely popular and mainstream. We love when a classic lock bracelet catches our eye, but there's nothing worse than worrying if you'll show up to a high-end party wearing the same statement piece as someone else. The truth is, there are so many young eager labels on the market that are producing the same quality pieces as some of your favorite household brand names. Below, we put together three of the most unique up-and-comers out there that you need to know about now.


Calling all lovers of fine Italian jewelry: Iosselliani is a name you should become familiar with. The brain child of Paolo Giacomelli and Roberta Paolucci, this brand has been impressing since 2005 with its quality handmade pieces that express creativity while also sticking to traditional Italian jewelry aesthetics. By mixing various metals with sparkling Swarovski crystals and semi precious stones, the variations of stunning necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings are endless. A range of different materials and shapes leaves viewers both perplexed and intrigued, which in our eyes, is the ideal recipe for a conversation piece. Photo Courtesy of Iosselliani

Inspired by architecture and simple lines, the jewelry by BRVTVS is simple but not boring. The collection by Caroline Ventura mimics the tomboy style that the designer is known for by mixing extremes like masculine and feminine and hard and soft. The result is simple, everyday pieces that are ideal for layering. The eclectic mix features chain rings, bracelets, spiked earrings, drop chain necklaces and curved bar bracelets that give off a rocker chic vibe. Photo Courtesy of BRVTVS

The jewelry collection by Mocium uses recycled, organic and alternative materials to create the understated and eye-catching jewelry that you see here. Established in 2006, the brand's creator, Caitlin Mociun, realized her vision and motivation early on and decided when she started her company that if she was going to be creating and selling products, she wanted to produce as little waste as possible while dually supporting her community through her jewelry. Her collection uses materials like gold, turquoise and diamonds along with other precious stones to create necklaces, rings earrings and bracelets that take on a range of geometric shapes and forms.
