Nothing commands attention quite like bold gold chains. Millennials are putting dainty their chains away and are adorning themselves in thick, statement chains.

There is nothing more glamorous than drop earrings. After all, who doesn’t feel like an A-lister when wearing earrings with cascading gemstones?

Is there anything more millennial than minimalism? Minimalism celebrates modern simplicity and believes that less is more. Millennials are wearing streamlined jewelry that focuses on geometric shapes, delicate gemstones, and asymmetrical stacks. No matter your style, minimalistic jewelry pairs with any look.
Our favorite millennial trend is sustainable jewelry. Millennials are loving pre-owned luxury jewelry that is just as environmentally responsible as it is fashionable. The reality is that mining for gemstones and precious metals drains natural resources, creates toxic waste and devastates ecosystems. By shopping for recycled jewelry, you extend the life of existing jewelry without contributing to these harmful practices. And since luxury jewelry is built to last a lifetime, once polished it looks brand new.
Shopping sustainably also comes with great savings. At myGemma, we sell a wide assortment of pre-owned luxury jewelry at up to 80% off retail. Enjoy shopping for pre-owned jewelry from your favorite luxury brands including Harry Winston, Chopard and Tiffany & Co. To make your next jewelry purchase even more affordable, we also provide monthly payment plans with our partner Affirm. Shopping for sustainable luxury is always fun, affordable and eco-friendly with myGemma.
