Ashley Davis

You can always expect some serious summer-jewelry-styling inspo from writer and editor Ashley Davis, who splits her time between New York and Miami. High-octane stacking paired with epic nail art makes for a cool and contemporary take on fine jewels, with a focus on fun, playful pieces. @ashleylikesgems

Brynn Wallner

Dimepiece, founded by ex-Sotheby’s content editor Brynn Wallner, is for digital-native women who love watches, delivering interviews and features that are fresh, sassy and full of pop culture. Wallner deep-dives into great watch moments that most of us didn’t even know existed – from decoding Ben Affleck’s recent resurfacing of a watch given to him by J.Lo in the early 2000s to Elle Macpherson rocking a Rolex in the ’90s while swimming with dolphins.

Geraldine Hu

If you’re a maximalist at heart, then the kaleidoscopic necklace layering of Geraldine Hu – a jewelry collector based in Singapore – is going to have you hooked. Her #neckmess styling features a mix of contemporary and trending designers (hello, Brent Neale, Marie Lichtenberg and Lito), intertwined with plenty of beads and bold talismans. @girl.with.a.diamond.earring

Annabel Davidson

Jewelry journalist Annabel Davidson is a true fine-jewelry aficionado, so what she doesn’t know about gemstones probably isn’t worth knowing.

Expect to see her in Breton stripes or denim, but bedecked in a hefty dose of breathtaking jewels. @annabel_davidson_yeah

With each picture-perfect post, you could mistake Tanya Dukes for a fine-jewelry photographer, but it’s her expert eye and talent for curation that makes her Instagram feed feel so addictive. Forget wallflower jewels – Dukes showcases showstopping gems and fantastical feats from myriad maisons on the New York scene. @tanyadukes
