We're still talking about these stunning engagement rings, wedding bands, earrings, and bracelets.

L.A.-based designer Melinda Maria was an important discovery this year—we had these earrings on the set of the Brides Local cover shoot and everyone assumed they commanded a five-figure price tag. Imagine our delight when we found out they cost less than $300. And like that, the designer has become our number one go-to source for "luxe for less" jewelry. 18k gold-plated Sassy Marquis earrings with white and amethyst cubic zirconia, $265, Melinda Maria.
