Our Instagram feeds are filled by the minute with hundreds, when not thousands of fantastic pictures styled with gorgeous jewellery, sometimes from completely new brands.
here are the 7 jewellery Instagrams we’re in love with this week, to help you choose your next pieces, one for each day of your week.
1 – Muse Showroom
MUSE is a boutique showroom that represents independent jewellery designers in NYC’s West Village. MUSE’s Instagram is pure inspiration; all the jewellery designers are international and worth to be discovered like the Brazilian Silvia Furmanovich, a jewellery designer that we love.
2 – FD Gallery
Not all jewellery brands on Instagram is about new and contemporary designers. Instagram is a heaven for vintage jewellery. And If you like rare jewellery from the 20th century and contemporary trends, FD Gallery is the Instagram account for you. They curate fabulous pieces from different designers, and one I’m currently obsessed with is the Italian designer Alessandro Sabbatini. My jaw dropped when I saw this gorgeous SABBA Turquoise and Diamond Ear Pendants

An unique label offering earring, necklaces, rings and brooches made with recycled and organic materials such as 60.000-year-old Mammoth ivory or preserved beetle wings. Apart of creating eccentric pieces, Bibi van der Velden is one of jewellery brands on Instagram setting trends on how to use unexpected materials and having nature as its inspiration.

Today you find many copies of Aaron’s design all over, but she is the only and real one.
