And just like that...we forgot about the penis pump, Widowcon and MILF lists. Why, you ask? Because we can’t stop lusting over this shiny and beautiful And Just Like That...-inspired jewelry collection.

Melinda Maria, makes jewelry for boss babes, chic moms and fashionistas that want to feel luxurious—without breaking the bank. Deemed Hollywood’s Bling Queen, her jewelry has been seen on the likes of A-list celebrities, from Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Amal Clooney, to name a few. And with such a high-profile clientele list, we’re surprised to find that Melinda Maria is pretty affordable, ranging anywhere from $42 to $215 for a stunning tennis necklace.

Besides the timeless tennis necklace, you’ll find more necklaces (minimalist and maximalist styles, included), earrings, ear cuffs, rings, bracelets and even a sexy, slinky anklet ($98). However, it’s Melinda Maria’s latest endeavor that stole the show: a Sex and the City- and And Just Like That...-inspired line of Carrie Chains, bottling up the essence of our favorite SATC personalities into delicate pieces you can wear. Representing bold, unapologetic styles, Marie envisioned Carrie Bradshaw fleeing to the bodega with designer tutu and Melinda Maria chain in tow. “The Carrie represents someone who takes risks, appreciates bold, statement jewelry, but is still classic,” says the brand.

The collection is crafted in 18k gold- or silver-plated over brass, hypoallergenic, nickel-free and—like all the items in the line—come with a lifetime guaranteed warranty. Now onto a few of our favorite pieces from the Carrie collection that’ll look so good with your new Baguette Bag.

OK, you already know we adore a basic chain, and this best-selling pavé chain is quintessential Carrie and comes in gold and silver. This handcrafted chain with lobster clasp is 15-to-18 inches in length and alternates nine pavé links and 10 smooth links for the most eye-catching yet subtle dazzle. It’s both glamorous and effortlessly chic, making it easy to pair solo with a white tank and jeans or layer over a little grey dress a la Bradshaw circa season 2.

And no SATC-inspired jewelry collection would be complete without a matching bracelet, of course. The Carrie Chain Link Bracelet adds a complimentary pop to its above counterpart, featuring similar links that are smooth and lay 8mm in width. Not only that, but it’s available in two sizes, six-and-a-half and five-and-a-half, to shop so you can make sure you’re getting that perfect fit. If you want to take a page out of the Bradshaw style book, we suggest you let this stunner be the star of the show.

As always, the earrings in this season of And Just Like That are nothing short of stellar. From Seema’s edgy bar earrings to Lisa’s chunky maximalist pieces, it’s clear to us that the ears are having a moment. Enter: The Carrie Chain Convertible Huggies, an asymmetrical design that oozes that Bradshaw effortless sex appeal and feature an easy removable link for when you’re looking to tone the double look down to embrace the minimalist style. Like the entire collection, the two-in-one earrings are available to shop in gold and silver.

Now who would Carrie be without her Samantha? As she put it, “friendships never go out of style,” and neither does the Samantha Single Cushion Necklace, which boasts Melinda Maria’s best-selling chain and diamonds in one delicate piece that looks expensive but costs way less than what you’d see at most jewelers. It even has the cutest baby cushion simulated diamond that lays along the décolletage and looks strikingly similar to one you’d see at David Yurman, if we do say so ourselves. As the brand states, “It's not too thick, not too thin, just a perfect everyday style that can be worn day to night.” In true Samantha fashion, this is an attention-grabber.
