Allow us to quote Mindy Kaling on this topic: “Some jewelry,” she told The Window, “you never take off. Shower, slow long runs, waking up from a nap at work, waiting to board a plane, watching TV, crying, having sex with people, folding laundry—whatever. It knows you super well, so it should be super simple, and you should spend some cash on it to bling it out.”
She was referring to her beloved “M” necklace by Jennifer Meyer—and there’s plenty more where that came from. Below you’ll find seven of our favorite designers who have nailed the art of never-take-it-off-jewerly.
JENNIE KWON Dainty and delicate, Jennie Kwon’s minimalist, geometry-inspired rings beg a girl to just pile it on.

EVA FEHREN Part rugged, part refined, Eva Fehren’s jewelry—especially the iconic and oh-so stackable X ring—appeals to the woman looking for both elegance and edge.
