Fashion editors have a lot of opinions. And while it may take more than the average to please us, when we like something, we tend to stick behind it. A brand that’s been ringing in my ears from my editor colleagues is Canadian jewelry brand Mejuri. Admittedly it’s been on my radar for a minute—via events and general shopping research— but until recently I never dove deep into its selection to try it in real life. Good thing I did, because the brand was exactly what I was looking for: no-frills everyday jewelry that I can leave on whether I’m sleeping or swimming. As I get older I feel over the wear-it-once-and-its-green costume jewelry, but am not quite ready to invest in fine jewelry a la a Van Cleef Alhambra piece (although I’m planning on it soon). Most of the pieces on Mejuri’s website are gold vermeil (or of higher quality) with a pretty affordable price point to match. The company claims that part of the reason its able to keep its prices relatively low is due to its middleman-cutting direct to consumer approach.
Mejuri’s minimal semi-fine jewelry sits nicely between the two categories, so with $100, you can buy a solid piece that won’t turn or lose its luster. On the flip side, the brand also makes really great affordable fine jewelry (including engagement rings), so there’s really something for everyone‘s budget.
I took five of Mejuri’s bestselling pieces for a test drive to see how they faired in the midst of my day-to-day activities and if they were worth the hype. Keep scrolling to read my review and for a visual of how I styled each piece.
