Daphine may be an under-the-radar jewelry brand, but we're willing to bet a certain dome-shaped cocktail ring is all over your Instagram feed.

Loved by fashion girls and influencers like Leandra Medine Cohen, Bettina Looney and Monikh, this London-based brand was founded back in 2017 by Damasia Ball and best friend Philippine de Follin after a dinner party conversation about how hard it was to find classic jewelry at an accessible price point.

Starting at $52, the prices are indeed democratic. Another bonus: all the pieces are handmade using recycled brass in its atelier, which is based in Jaipur, making Daphine one of the best sustainable jewelry brands, too.

Daphine might have only been around for several years but it has already amassed a global following. As for the ring in question? The brand's hero piece is the Oli gold-plated ring that people often layer up, wearing two on one finger. 

In fact, it’s now virtually impossible to attend a runway show without the presence of an Oli ring somewhere in the fashion crowd. Even Beyonce was styled for the cover of British Vogue, donning the statement ring. 

But now, thanks to a certain Hadid sister, Daphine has been propelled into the global fashion stratosphere. Bella has put the brand firmly on the map after being spotted wearing Daphine's best selling bracelets, the Mene bangle and the Moune bangles.

The first product the pair designed were the Moune Bangles. Named after one of their grandmothers, the set of three 18ct gold-plated irregularly-shaped bangles was inspired by the simple gold bracelets the women in their families had always worn.  

In co-founder Philippine’s native French, the sleek Mene bangle is undeniably ‘intemporel’ – or timeless. 

Further collections include statement chains and earrings, as well as luxe pearls and diamanté finishes. 

Put simply, Daphine jewelry will give what you're wearing a little extra punch and sophistication.
