Jewelry has always been perceived as an investment — something that you’d only pull out for an occasion. But that has changed. Today, it’s as much a statement as it is an investment. Whether it’s your Cartier Love bracelet, an art deco ring or a modern molten gold piece, your jewelry says a lot about your personal style. 

Lately, several boutique brands have been leading this space with their niche, everyday designs. According to recent reports, the jewelry segment is expected to grow at a rate of 5-6% per year, over the next 3 years. If you’re wondering what’s driving this growth in the jewelry market, it’s the growing Gen Z and millennial population. The new generation, with their disposable incomes, desire meaningful, individualistic products that resonate with their lifestyle. They also appreciate newly minted designers and brands.  

Here are some digitally native jewelry houses that have struck a chord with Gen Z shoppers:

1. Kendra Scott

Kendra Scott‘s pieces are versatile and elegant. They are great for a range of occasions. Recently, the brand introduced a new AR- try on tool to deliver to the digitally active Gen Z folks.
