Fashion editors have a lot of opinions. And while it takes more than average to please us, when we like something, we tend to stick with it. One brand that rings in my ears from my fellow editors is Canadian jewelry brand Mejuri. Granted, it’s been on my radar for a minute – via events and general shopping searches – but until recently I’ve never dived into its selection to try it out 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 while I sleep or swim. As I get older, I feel overwhelmed with one-time costume jewelry and that’s green, but I’m not quite ready to invest in fine jewelry a la Van Cleef Alhambra (although I plan to do so soon ). Most of the coins on the Mejuri website are gold vermeil (or higher quality) with a fairly affordable price. The company says part of the reason it’s able to keep its prices relatively low is due to its direct-to-consumer approach.
Mejuri’s minimal semi-fine jewelry falls nicely between the two categories, so with $100 you can buy a solid piece that won’t turn or lose its luster. On the other hand, the brand also makes some really good affordable fine jewelry (including engagement rings), so there really is something for every budget.
I took five of Mejuri’s best-selling pieces for a test drive to see how they fared in the midst of my daily activities and if they were worth the hype. Keep scrolling to read my review and for a visual of how I styled each piece.
