Many of us are finding our relationship with fashion changing. Two years ago, when we were all forced to embrace a much slower pace of life, there was something of a reset in the way we approached our wardrobes, and there has been a reckoning regarding sustainability and how we choose to invest in what we wear. With a less throwaway attitude, many of us are investing in products that we will be able to hold on to forever – and this is especially true when it comes to jewellery.

As a result, demi-fine jewellery has never been more popular, sitting as it does in that middle ground between value and quality. Far superior to costume jewellery but without the premium price tag associated with fine pieces, demi-fine jewellery is made affordable by using lower carat or plated precious metals (think gold, silver or platinum) in place of their solid counterparts. These are then combined with sparkling gemstones such as diamonds or sapphires for a beautiful finish. The result is eye-catching accessories that give off a hint of luxury without breaking the bank.

Thanks to the sudden boom in interest in the mid-range market, there have never been more – or better – designers producing wonderful demi-fine ranges. Below, we round up some of our favourite rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings available now, all from top-quality brands that the Bazaar fashion editors have come to rely on.

1 Missoma

Fashion editor favourite Missoma positions itself as the first demi-fine jewellery brand, and is now as well known for its recent collaborations with designer Harris Reed as it is for its layerable, stackable pieces. The new vintage-inspired Molten Pearl collection features slightly more unusual, abstract pieces, like this charming pearl pendant.

2 Laura Lombardi

If you're a fan of chunkier jewellery then Laura Lombardi is a name to know. The designer's industrial aesthetic is inspired by her New York upbringing, and all her gold-plated pieces - from chunky chains to her signature statement earrings - are crafted in the US.

3 Mejuri

Mejuri specialises in everyday fine jewellery and follows the philosophy that "jewellery is an expression of self" - that it should be bought, gifted or worn whenever you want (because why save it for best?). If you're in the market for some new hoops or huggies then look no further; you won't want to ever take this diamond pavé pair off.

4 Alighieri

Over the past few years, Alighieri has become a firm favourite with fashion insiders, and you will likely have seen many of the designs on your Instagram feed. Designer Rosh Mahtani creates the most beautiful gold-plated pieces, including this striking Edge of the Abyss ring, which is handmade and designed to look like a modern heirloom.

5 Jennifer Behr

We love a bit of colourful jewellery in our everyday wardrobes, making this lovely pair of green drop earrings from Jennifer Behr a very inviting purchase. They have been created with round Swarovski crystals and are the perfect size to wear day to day.

6 Vashi

British jewellery brand Vashi specialises in bespoke, ethically sourced fine jewellery as well as contemporary pieces, all produced locally in the UK, and all of the precious metals used are 100% recycled. This dainty 18k yellow-gold and pearl ring would make the perfect gift - either to yourself or a loved one.

7 Vrai

Female-lead jewellery brand Vrai creates jewellery with intention, with a focus on designing pieces to promote positive thought. This Inner Spirit medallion necklace features 14k gold rays emanating from a sustainable baguette diamond; a wearable beacon of guidance.

8 Anissa Kermiche

She is best-known for her ceramics, most of which celebrate the female form, but designer Anissa Kermiche also creates some of the most beautiful demi-fine jewellery around.

This 14-carat gold, peridot and diamond chain ring would make a brilliant addition to anyone’s jewellery box.

Carat London

A tennis bracelet is perhaps one of the most classic pieces of jewellery a woman can own, and demi-fine jewellery label Carat London has plenty of amazing options to choose from. We love this particular style, which has been created with the label’s exquisitely cut and polished Princess stones and set in sterling silver with a white gold finish.

10 Completedworks
Matches Fashion

If it’s pearls you love, then let us direct you to Completedworks’ new collection, which is filled with fun takes on traditional pieces, including this chunky iteration of the classic pearl necklace.

It has been created using freshwater pearls and 14ct gold-plated silver.

11 Retrofête

After a real showstopper? Retrofête has created a statement single earring that will be the perfect finishing touch to any party look. Even better, this rhodium-plated crystal earring is created in all the letters of the alphabet, meaning it makes a great personalised gift.

12 Rosantica
The Outnet

Italian label Rosantica may have become famous for its beautiful sparkly handbags but the brand actually started out life as a jewellery specialist, and we love to turn to it when we’re after something with a touch of sparkle.

This floral gold bracelet just went right to the top of our wish list.
