jewelry sites I shop compulsively


Andrea Linett—the creative director of eBay fashion and the force behind the blessedly straightforward style blog Iwanttobeher.com—has a famously extensive (and well-documented) jewelry collection. As a long-time magazine editor and stylist (she was the founding creative director of Lucky Magazine), it's not a huge surprise that she's intimately familiar with every accessories designer out there. When asked, she provided a list of picks that win her wallet, month after month.

Here, the 11 jewelry sites that Andrea Linett shops compulsively.

  • 1

    Ten Thousand Things

    These guys make amazing organic, handmade fine jewelry, and the site is so beautifully shot it makes everything look super drool-worthy. I'm especially obsessed with the Tahitian pearl pieces right now.

    Ugly Otter

    I collect Native American jewelry and this is like walking into a pawn shop in Tucson! You never know what you're going to get. I always just check out the old pawn pieces. The concho belts are a great deal.

    Southwestern Jewelry

    Vicki, the owner, is so awesome: She hand picks all the pieces and is incredibly knowledgeable about their origins.

  • 4

    Ylang 23

    They have so much amazing fine jewelry under one roof. I could look on here for hours. Right now I'm eyeing this awesome Pippa Small bracelet—it's pure ethnic glamour!

    M. Schon

    Another great modern site that focuses on designer pieces. This is where I learned about Cher Fox.

  • 6

    Sydney Evan Jewels

    Sydney makes the best pave jewelry out there. I always buy gifts for people on here—there are so many cute charms.

  • 7

    The Three Graces

    This place has lots of cool stuff from all eras including Victorian, Edwardian and Art deco. If you're into hair jewelry, they have tons of it.

    Love, Adorned

    This is one my favorite shops in New York—they finally went online. I'm jonesing for this Polly Wales Dawn Ring.

    eBay

    I'm looking on eBay constantly! I have so much good stuff from here: A sterling silver Hermes Medor watch, an amazing old mine cut diamond ring that my friend Daniel gave me, and pearl cluster earrings, to name just a few. Once my friend Daniel (good friend, huh?) made me a giant charm bracelet from charms he found on eBay. Each one was an inside joke. Right now I'm watching lavalieres.

    Doyle & Doyle

    My beautiful old European cut 1930s Tiffany solitaire engagement ring came from here.

    Modernist Jewery

    I love mid-century modern jewelry and this place has a great selection at really good prices.
