Nine mid-range jewellery brands that are a little bit different (and won't break your bank account).

Spoiler alert: You don’t need to drop your monthly pay cheque to get a beautiful piece of jewellery.

Whether it’s a gift for yourself or someone you love, we’ve rounded up the 10 best mid-range jewellery brands worth checking out for when you don’t want something super cheap (but can’t quite splash the cash just yet.)
