Need a new bauble to catch the sun's rays as you finally head outside this spring?

Wardrobe refreshes are trending toward precious metals and stones this season, with some of our favorite brands and designers (along with newcomers) hoping that consumers will drop at least a portion of their recent stimulus checks on flashy accessories. Here are seven of our favorite picks.

Giles & Brother Signet Rings
More is more when it comes to these chunky rings in silver or antique brass. We're not playing favorites...but fell hard for this sailor, hand-forged and featuring a nautical anchor. ($150)

Foundrae Medallions
Creative director and co-founder Beth Bugdaycay turns to symbolism to craft show-stopping pieces with purpose. "Resilience," "Wholeness," and "Protection" are among the mantras she imbues into the collection. Triple your power with the "Strength, Dream & Karma" necklace, made using an ancient enameling technique. ($6,195)

David Yurman Bracelets
David Yurman is both an icon and a trend-setter. We're obsessed with the Chevron woven bracelet in 18k gold ($10,800). Or if that's too much of a splurge, the black titanium version at $1,400 is just as stunning.

Patek Philippe Grand Complications Self-Winding Watch
You'll never have to rewind your watch. And it might take you the rest of your life to pay it off, but for those with six figures to spend, look no further than the Swiss watchmaker's latest creation. The showpiece watch features a 24-hour alarm system, Ebony black sunburst, gold applied numerals with luminescent coating and platinum casing. ($260,220)

Sett & Co. Talon Bar Necklace
The completely customizable talon bar (in sterling silver or 18k gold plating) offers personalized inscriptions on all four sides of the 1.5-inch bar, making this the ideal bespoke gift for a loved one or yourself. Just make sure your mantra is 17 characters or fewer. ($90-$110)

John Hardy Classic Chain Bracelet
Made of sterling silver and rubber steel and featuring the brand's signature carabiner clasp, this chain bracelet will be your go-to accessory for a pop of graphic style. The bracelet, featured here in gray, is also available in stand-out colors, including red, green, orange and blue. ($495-$505)

dunhill Lock Bag
Sure, technically it's a bag, but there's enough hardware on this beauty that it feels like a piece of jewelry. The new eel skin lock bag premiered as part of dunhill's SS21 collection, where "western style meets Japanese sensibilities." The responsibility sourced off-white eel-skin leather features a lock design inspired by dunhill's 1960s attaché case and features an attachable and detachable shoulder strap. ($2,995)
