    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    This is my most beloved ring at the moment and I've wanted one in this exact style for some time now. I love the asymmetrical placement of the stones where they're not in a perfect aligned shape, it adds some character. It honestly looks fab when I wear it on any finger — thumb, index, middle finger (it truly doesn't matter, it looks good ALWAYS). I've washed my hands a bunch with it too and I've seen no signs of wear and tear. This is a jewelry ~steal.~

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5–9 and seven finishes/styles).

    11. A Little Words Project Bracelet (that can be customized) so your jewelry can feel personal and heartfelt.

    Little Words Project

Adriana Carrig, the owner, is a total powerhouse of a girlboss and I've had the pleasure of knowing her and watching her brand grow to where it is now. She's also grown her business into a podcast as well (Glow Through It Podcast) with LWP brand director, Mariah Grippo.

    Also!!! If you're in the NYC area, they recently opened up their first brick and mortar location on Bleecker St.!

    I own a ton of their bracelets and have been such a huge fan since the brand's inception. I've bought them as gifts for so many people in my life and obvi for myself (they're just so darn cute)! I love that you're able to stack their inspirational bracelets featuring phrases like "Make Magic" or things that feel personal to you like "Boy Mom" or "Dog Mom". These are such an amazing gift to give any time of year so whether you gift one or a few of them, the recipient will def love them.

The color is true to the picture. It’s a dupe for the Rejina Pyo bag but not the $600 price tag. Great buy if you’re looking for that Staud ruched unique shape bag brand trend." —LStone

    Get it from Amazon for $23.71+ (available in four colors).

    13. A birth flower coin necklace — an adorbs ode to your birthday month because it's, IMO, cuter than a birthstone. So trendy, so floral, so cool. #Obsessed

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

It looks amazing stacked with my other fave jewelry pieces, and when the clasp shows at the front, I don't worry about having to shift it to the back of my neck because it looks like a statement part of the necklace.

    Promising review: "I’m usually skeptical of these kinds of purchases on Amazon, but people, this is an amazing product! First, it was delivered as expected. It came in a nice black box wrapped in plastic. When I saw it I knew it was a good quality product. It is heavy and the the crystals feels solidly attached to the purse. The size is small compared to other purses in my collection but I had expected that. It can hold what you need like your phone, lipstick, cardholder, sanitizer, etc. There are two small pockets to hold your cards. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who likes sparkly stuff!" —Mrs Rios

I have tried multiple pairs and this brand looks and feels comparable to a pair of Ray-Bans and Pradas. I have a smaller face and to me this pair fits the best, perfect for my nose and brow line. I couldn’t be happier. I just wish there were five stars so everyone would know how amazing they are. If you are questioning whether or not they will look as good on you as they do in the photos, yes...yes they do." —Christina
