15 Black Jewelry Designers To Support Now and Always

  15 Black Jewelry Designers To Support Now and Always A new scholarship highlights the barriers to entry in the fine jewelry industry, but you can directly support Black-owned brands now.Randi Molofsky, co-founder of For Future Reference, the New York and Los Angeles-based fine jewelry brand development agency, knows that the barrier to entry in the industry is high: “BIPOC designers are historically underrepresented in the fine jewelry industry. Accessibility is the first step in making meaningful change: specifically education, ongoing mentorship initiatives, and financial assistance.” Take the story of Arthur George “Art” Smith, the legendary mid-century Black jewelry designer, as an example.

Colorful gemstones are often eclipsed by diamonds, but don’t underestimate what the flash of green, red, blue, or orange in a colorful earring can add to an ensemble. Think of the instant lift coral, turquoise, or malachite give a breezy white summer dress, or what emeralds, rubies, and sapphires give to a classic button-down shirt or a cocktail dress.

Embracing colored stones in earrings can bring a desired warm or cold tone to the face. They needn’t be the most complicated of earrings—often the best are simple. Jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth has made a name for herself with her whimsical designs that embrace stones of all hues. “I love using the same color values with different colors next to one another,” she says, “so when you squint your eyes, it looks similar, but when you look more closely, they are different.”

This Best-selling Sneaker Brand Just Launched a Colorful, Travel-inspired Collection for Fall

  This Best-selling Sneaker Brand Just Launched a Colorful, Travel-inspired Collection for Fall They're comfortable, sustainable, and now, more colorful than ever Related: More comfy shoes require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The collection features five sneakers in colors inspired by vibrant shades found in nature from regions all over the world. Picante, for example, is a deep orange-red taken from the red rocks and dry desert heat of Arizona, while Blueprint, a rich blue, is inspired by the spot on the horizon where the sky meets the sun.

Just as with diamonds, there’s an ethical wave in the colored gemstone arena. Gemfields has made strides in responsibly sourcing gemstones. It has recently partnered with the conservation charity Space for Giants in partnership with Net-a-Porter to create a collection called Walk for Giants that raises money and awareness for conservation in Africa. Programs such as this make a colorful piece’s origins far less of a worry.

Neuwirth doesn’t give weight to one stone being better than another. “Any color! All the colors,” she says. Artist palettes at the ready: time to add some fun to your ear game.

Simple

As with many things in life, often a simple approach to gemstone earrings is the most successful. There’s no need to go wild to get the point across.
