Kendra Scott is a jewelry company headquartered in Austin, Texas. The brand was started by a mom of 3 who wanted to create affordable natural stone jewelry.

The current offering includes fashion jewelry and fine jewelry, and some home goods. Most recently they have launched a mens’ line called Scott Bros.

Kendra Scott supports organizations for women and children throughout the year with their give back campaigns and items.

Why I Love Kendra Scott Jewelry

I love Kendra Scott jewelry because it is affordable quality fashion jewelry. Although they do have a fine jewelry line, I am focusing here on the fashion jewelry options.

Visually the pieces look well made, and I have not had any problems with the metals. A quick summary of their metal selections in the fashion jewelry line include:

  • Gold tone – 14k gold plated over brass
  • Silver tone – Rhodium plated over brass
  • Rose gold – 14k rose gold plated over brass
  • Black tone – gunmetal plated over brass

I also love the variety and option to customize offered by Kendra Scott, so if I need a particular color item, I know I can find it!

Kendra Scott Birthday Perks

One of my favorite things that KS offers is their birthday month discount!

My first purchase was actually during my birthday month, when they offer 50% off fashion jewelry, and 25% off fine jewelry.

I even went so far as to sign up my husband during his birthday month, because new Kendra Scott is always on my list for Christmas!

Make sure to read the fine print for which type falls within which discount tier. This discount is good online or in store! I have not tried it yet for color bar, but that’s my plan this year!

Kendra Scott Color Bar

Wait, what? I just mentioned the Color Bar, so let’s go over this super awesome customization portal.

Many of the most common and best Kendra Scott pieces can be customized using this feature.

In some cases you can choose from 3-4 metals including gold, silver, rose gold, and black. Currently there are over 30 stones offered. Fine jewelry finishes are not included in customization options.

I love this because sometimes I want a combination that isn’t already available. An example would be how coral is usually paired with gold.

With Color Bar you can fix this oversight!

I’ve noted which of my picks for Kendra Scott best pieces have a color bar option.

Here are my top 10 pics for best Kendra Scott pieces for 2021. Note that I’m only featuring fashion jewelry, as this is the most affordable way to add personality and color to your jewelry collection.

#10 Elyse Double Band Ring

While I personally do not wear rings other than my wedding set, there are some beautiful options at Kendra Scott. My favorite of all the rings is the Elyse double band ring, which comes in silver and gold, and is also featured as a customizable product.

You may notice this gem shape appears repeatedly, and this is the signature Kendra Scott shape. Many of my favorites feature it, because it makes the pieces distinguishable.

There are many other ring options available, some of which would also be perfect for teen girls.

Rings are available in whole sizes from 5-9.

#9 Emilie Link Bracelet

The Emilie link bracelet also features the signature stone shape.

This is a lovely dainty bracelet which comes in metal colors and some new colorful options.

I really adore the rainbow mix, but would love if better in silver. Unfortunately this bracelet is not available in Color Bar.

The Emilie link bracelet is 6.5 inches with 3 length adjustments.

#8 Dira Coin Charm Necklace

Charms are trending again in 2021 and the Dira Coin Charm necklace jumps on the bandwagon.

This dainty charm necklace features a logo stamped coin, signature shaped stone, and pointed pendant. It is 19 inches with a 3 inch extender.

The charms on this necklace are removable and interchangeable, and you could easily create a custom piece by using another individual charm.

The Dira Coin Charm necklace is a customizable product in Color Bar, so you could get this with your preferred metal with any of 30 available stones.

This one is on my wish list in rhodium with white kyocera opal and a heart charm added.

If simple elegance is more your style, these Addie drop earrings will not disappoint.

As a larger statement option, these earrings pack a punch with an understated simplicity.

They come in only three finishes: gold, mixed metal, and silver, and feature a delicate filigree pattern instead a unique shape.

The Addie measures 1.5″ in length and hangs from earwire.

#3 Ellie Stud Earrings

If you’re looking for a basic stud earring in a rainbow of colors with a unique shape, then Ellie is your best choice!

This piece is actually my first experience with Kendra Scott, and it was gifted to me by our popular grocery chain as a mother’s day surprise. I received a pair in silver with emerald drusy.

This earring is available in the color bar with 4 metal options and over 30 stone choices, so the sky is the limit for customizing these gorgeous earrings.

The Ellie is half an inch long and barely over quarter inch wide on a post.

#2 Elisa Pendant Necklace

This is the best Kendra Scott piece according to customers, as it is their number one seller.

Not only does it come in this standard formulation at 15-17″, but it also comes in extended length (17-20″) and layered option (20-22″).

Every iteration of the Elisa pendant is available in the color bar option, so you can make the perfect necklace!

#1 Lee Drop Earrings

While my #1 pick for the best Kendra Scott jewelry item isn’t their best seller, it’s because these earrings are just so underrated.

These were my first KS purchase, after considering a second pair of the Ellie stud. My helpful husband pointed out that I seemed to like dangly earrings and voted for these.

He was spot on!

Which brings home what I love most about the Lee earrings. They are a petite statement earring. They aren’t so overwhelming that they are competing with your hair, but they are more noticeable than a stud.

As a color bar item, they are available for customization in four metals and over 30 stones.

I’ll be adding a fuchsia pair in silver next, but honestly every option is beautiful.

The Lee is slighter over a half inch stone on an earwire.

If you are looking for a matched set, the Lee earring and Elisa pendant are offered together in a gift set in a limited neutral color selection.
