Throughout decades of evolving trends, jewelry has never gone out of style. Layered necklaces, stacked rings and bracelets, and even statement earrings have always been necessary to complete a daily look.  

With so many brands taking over your Instagram feed, we’re highlighting 13 local accessory lines that bring the bling to Houston. From C.Shel’s seaside-inspired Lele necklace to Bella Madre’s berry ruby ring, these local labels offer the most unique adornments on the market. There’s also a wide range of affordable pieces throughout each shop. For quick and quality finds, visit KAECHAE, and for a luxurious diamond buy, visit Lindsey Leigh Jewelry. 

Whether sterling silver, rose gold, pearl, diamond, or classic gold, you’ll find everything you need at these local brands. Scroll ahead and check out 13 Houston accessory labels that’ll quickly become your new favorites. 

The Bead Shop


One of the best ways to find a moment of zen in Houston? Wander in here, grab a tiny tray, and lose yourself exploring the thousands of beads of every shape, size, and style imaginable, helpfully sorted by color. An hour and $20 later, you’ll walk out with a custom bracelet or necklace (helpfully assembled by employees if you need a hand). It’s way cheaper than a traditional therapy session.

Bella Madre


Owned by Pia Tolomei and CC Brollier, Bella Madre has become a Houston staple. Inspired by exotic and elegant pieces, the chic accessory line offers an array of lengthy necklaces and glamorous rings. The Pear Illusion Drop Necklace is perfect for a boho look, while the Blue Topaz and Amethyst Bubble Ring can stand alone or be stacked for dramatic effect. 


The Heights

Dainty jewelry is officially trendy, and Burdlife is a key destination for the favored look. The vibrant brand is perfect for everyday wear with pieces such as the braided semi hoop or the adaline Initial bracelet. These may be small but will enhance any outfit with a touch of elegance. Burdlife also offers permanent accessories that ensure your favorite bracelet or necklace is forever attached. 

High Gloss



This shop is all about jewelry as wearable art. High Gloss offers pieces by independent artists and artisans more likely to be covered in beads than baguettes—think braided-leather earrings, steel-mesh necklaces, vintage pins, and matte-rubber cuff bracelets.

Johnny Dang & Co.



If you somehow made it through 2005 without getting a grill, it’s never too late to remedy that. TV Johnny is still the grill king—evening making pieces for Macklemore and José Altuve—but the bling doesn’t stop there. Whether it’s jewelry, a watch, or sunglasses, if you can cover it in diamonds, you can find it in Dang’s expansive new showroom.

Lindsey Leigh Jewelry

Fourth Ward

Houstonian Lindsey Schultz set on to start Lindsey Leigh Jewelry with a love for diamonds. From glorious wedding bands to couture accessories, the luxurious and local label is a must for your collection. Amazing adornments like the crystalized baguette circle studs or gold bezel set opal and diamond ring are mesmerizing pieces that will glisten at any of Houston's exclusive balls and galas. 

Rebecca Lankford Designs

The Heights

Lankford has upgraded her studio into a full-blown boutique, where she sells her own modern, minimalist designs alongside local and undiscovered brands like Fiele fragrances, Hatton Henry leather goods, and Anvil Cards. No one else in town makes crosses look quite as cool as she does, and if you’re in the market for a slightly offbeat engagement ring, you’ll want her to design it. 

Thomas Markle Jewelers


Markle started selling jewelry in 1983, toting it everywhere, from banks to hair salons, in his faux crocodile briefcase. Today, he’s behind two Houston stores—Harvey claimed a third, his flagship, in Kingwood—with loyal followings, plus his fine jewelry collection, TMJ Couture. Another claim to fame: His Memorial location is the largest independent Rolex dealer in the state.

Tenenbaum Jewelers

River Oaks


Tenenbaum has been a significant name in vintage and estate jewelry for four decades, but since merging with Past Era Antique Jewelry and Queen of Heirs in recent years, it’s become the preeminent destination for unique, rare, and exciting jewelry finds in town. It’s also got a stunning new storefront and an enviable collection of designer names, including Tiffany & Co., Bulgari, Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels.

Zadok Jewelers



If you can’t find the sparkle you’re seeking in this swanky, family-owned stalwart, it might not exist: Over 50 high-end brands are represented here, including several Houston exclusives. The watch selection, featuring designers from Shinola to Jaeger-LeCoultre, is unparalleled; jewelry ranges from candy-colored gemstone rings by Pomellato to cascading, Indian-inspired diamonds by Sutra and Zadok’s well-priced pieces.

C. Shel 

Mother-daughter duo Gillian “GiGi” Sheldon and Danielle Rolfes are the founders of C. Shel. Inspired by the healing qualities of gemstones, the eccentric brand is handmade with African beads to recreate whimsical styles. C. Shel is the brand for your vacation needs with the triple surf stack bracelets pairing perfectly with sundresses, or the salmon yacht club earrings making a statement during an afternoon on a boat. The brand is also known for its signature shell-shaped jewelry holders that come in abstract designs and store your favorite accessories. 


KAECHE is a Black-owned accessory brand owned by Kaela Mcfolling. The shop is packed with statement necklaces such as the star chain exquisite necklace, and the silver and gold fraternal Cuban link. The newly-released Self Love collection features a glitzy batch of bracelets, rings, and earrings for 15% with code INSTA.

My London Flat

Walking up the narrow stairwell, you quickly realize owner Suzy Smith takes the name of her shop quite seriously. This teeny, tucked-away spot boasts an impressive supply of hand-picked finds like vintage cameos from the U.K. and France, strung with modern-day accents like pearls, in collections named for Jane Austen and Princess Diana.
