The market for men and women’s luxury jewellery has never been stronger. Despite the exorbitant costs, high-end jewellery continues to be a statement piece that many people are eager to show off. The secret to spending big on jewellery is to know which designers offer the best mix of style, decadence, and craftsmanship. 

To ensure you drape yourself in the boldest trappings of wealth, here are five of the most luxurious jewellery brands on the market. Sure, tastes vary, but these high-end designers each offer something to satisfy your yearning for exquisite jewellery that is sure to drop some jaws. 

5 Top Luxury Brands

These luxury jewellery brands are beloved for good reasons. Let’s take a closer look as to what separates them from the more cost-conscious brands and why so many people are willing to spend so extravagantly to get them. 

  1. Harry Winston

Since 1932, Harry Winston has been the “King of Diamonds” and synonymous with luxury jewellery. It’s been worn by celebrities like Madonna and Jennifer Lopez. Harry Winston carries pieces that can cost up to $20 million but if you want to pay a little less, you can find lots of gorgeous items in the $4,000 to $10,000 range.  

Some of their most popular jewellery pieces can be found in either the Incredibles Collection, which includes precious gemstones, or the New York Collection. While Harry Winston offers a variety of engagement and bridal jewellery, two of its most notable pieces are the Forget-Me-Not Ruby and Diamond Pendant and the Forget-Me-Not Diamond Ring, which are part of its Fine Jewellery Collection

  1. Cartier

Andy Warhol and Kate Middleton are just two of the big names that have accentuated their styles with Cartier jewellery. Pieces in the Cartier collections cost between $1,000 and $2.76 million with the most expensive piece being a 25.6-carat Burmese Ruby, which sold at auction for $30,335,698.

A prominent luxury jewellery brand since 1847, Cartier offers tons of exciting high-end

pieces like a Juste un Clou Bracelet ($3,600 for the small model) and the Clash de Cartier Bracelet ($10,200 for the medium model). 

  1. Van Cleef & Arpels

Van Cleef & Arpels is an esteemed luxury jewellery brand that carries engagement pieces, watches and a suite of stunning necklaces and bracelets. Their designs are trendy and timely while strictly adhering to the highest quality of materials and craftsmanship. 

The Legend of Diamonds Collection is worth noting as it has drawn in luxury jewellery fans with its mythology and allure. This collection features 25 unique and elegant pieces that were all cut from a particularly exceptional rough diamond. 

You could also purchase the Vintage Alhambra Reversible Ring ($6,800) or the Sweet Alhambra bracelet ($2,020). Both pieces are highly sought-after thanks to their fair prices and elegant designs.

  1. Tiffany & Co. 

No list of luxury jewellery brands would be complete without Tiffany & Co. Its legacy started in 1837 when Tiffany set up its first shop and it didn’t take long for them to make their mark in the world of couture jewellery. This brand can count Jackie Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor among its most ardent fans. 

Their collection of wedding bands offers an education on how luxury can be simple and small but still convey class and high-end style. The Tiffany Harmony Band Ring in platinum and with diamonds costs $3,900 but is worth every dollar if you’re shopping for a show-stopping band. 

  1. Chopard

A Swiss company that’s been in operation since 1860, Chopard made its name by designing impressive lines of women’s watches. After being sold in 1960 to a German company, the brand didn’t lose any of its lustre, continuing to impress the high-end market with wrist and pocket watches for women. It would take some time before the company took its first step into women’s jewellery but then it didn’t take long for these pieces to become highly desirable. 

A self-proclaimed artisan of emotion, Chopard’s Happy Diamonds collection is the perfect combination of luxury, creativity, and a daring spirit. The Happy Hearts Wings necklace, made with ethical rose gold and diamond, exemplifies Chopard’s ability to create something bold yet delicate. 

Dress to Impress With Luxury Jewellery

Wearing luxury jewellery is a costly affair and is only accessible to a limited market. However, if the price doesn’t give you pause, then wearing high-end jewellery delivers the feeling of stepping out of a limousine and onto the red carpet without fail. 

Luxury pieces are also investments. If properly cared for, they can maintain or even increase in value over time. Yet, the real appeal is the style and message that each piece conveys. Few things in life mimic the feeling of wearing a piece of jewellery that looks as expensive as it costs.
