This Celeb-Loved Jewelry Brand Makes the Perfect Galentine's Day Gift for Your BFF or Yourself
Jessica Alba, Sarah Hyland, Halsey, and more are making a *strong* case for this affordable jewelry brand.
Okay, stop panicking and listen up. If you're last-minute shopping for a thoughtful Galentine's Day gift for your closest bae(s) or using the occasion to treat yourself (because you deserve it!), skip the cliche flowers and chocolate this year. Whether your BFF is a total fashionista or prefers an effortless, less-is-more vibe, it's time you met London-based jewelry brand Astrid & Miyu, a go-to among Hollywood's biggest and busiest stars.
Known for its signature ear stacks, the British brand has gained a cult-like reputation among fashion editors, influencers, and even your favorite celebrities. The brand's dainty yet head-turning pieces have been rocked by A-listers, including Jessica Alba, Sarah Hyland, Halsey, Georgia May Jagger, Pippa Middleton, and Jamie King—to name a few. The best news? Nearly all of Astrid & Miyu's styles cost less than $100, so you don't have to spend a fortune to steal their looks.

Honest Beauty founder Jessica Alba posted to her Instagram wearing Astrid & Miyu 18k Gold Plated Large Hoop Earrings (Buy It, $57,
$95, asos.com), which dressed up her pinstripe button-down blouse for a chic yet professional look perfect for the office or brunch.
Alba isn't the only fan. Actress Sarah Hyland has also been spotted wearing Astrid & Miyu's Beaded Choker (Buy It, $83, astridandmiyu.com), which can be layered with several necklaces to add drama to even your most basic tee. But the 90s choker trend may not be everyone's cup of tea, so if you're on the hunt for something more delicate and feminine, feast your eyes on the brand's 18k Gold Plated Moon Pendant Necklace (Buy It, $78, asos.com), a sweet gift for your celestial-loving bestie.

American singer Halsey also posted a selfie to her Instagram showing off an ear party that has us seriously considering another lobe piercing. The singer sported Astrid & Miyu's Mystic Spike Huggy (Buy It, $63, astridandmiyu.com), which gives her an edgy vibe to compliment her rocker t-shirt and neon eyeshadow. But, if simplicity is more your style, opt for the same huggy earring sans spike with the brand's delicate Opal Pave Huggies (Buy It, $78, asos.com).
What's so great about Astrid & Miyu's huggy earrings is that they are essentially mini hoop earrings that closely hug your ear (hence the name). The design ensures they stay out of the way whether you're sweating it out in a fitness class, rinsing off in the shower, or simply wanting a more understated earring for the office. Plus, they are incredibly lightweight, comfortable to wear all day long, and won't annoyingly stretch out your earring holes. (Related: Is It OK to Wear Jewelry While You Work Out?)

Not only are you bound to find the perfect little something to suit her style aesthetic—whether it's bold or minimal—but you'll both be in great company with the growing list of celebrity fans.
