15 Black Woman-Owned Jewelry Brands You Can Shop Right Now

These Black woman-owned jewelry brands show no signs of slowing down.

Beauty & Fashion

Black women have been at the forefront of both business and fashion since the beginning of time with effortless style, grace, culture, and beauty. Not only are we natural trendsetters, we are rarely given the proper recognition for our countless talents and skills, boxed into stereotypes until considered cool by the masses. Black women are also the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs, making up nearly half of women-owned businesses in the United States.

Even as we are suffering through a worldwide pandemic, Black business owners are working hard to stay afloat in this uncertain economy. As we become more aware of how we're spending our money during this time, let's begin to put even more effort into supporting Black businesses and widening our network of alternatives in all categories.

For both special occasions and everyday wear, jewelry can play an important role in the lives of women. With the power to uplift our spirits during our most memorable moments, most of us take pride in the pieces we own.
