The past year and a half of lockdown has changed the way we shop forever. More and more fashion and jewellery brands are now exclusively online, whether it’s on marketplaces or social media sites, like Instagram and Pinterest. We’ve officially had our eyes opened to the world of online jewellery, and this has put endless designer jewellery brands right at our fingertips. Now that there are more brands than ever for us to browse through, it can be hard to figure out where to begin! For the best places to buy jewellery online, take a look at our list below…
