18 Black-Owned Jewelry Lines to Elevate Your Style Game

I’ve always had a natural affinity for accessories. I love shoes, bags, hats, scarves, belts, etc. more than anyone else I know. But one extra outfit touch has always stood above the rest for me: jewelry. My little T.J. Maxx jewelry organizer is constantly overflowing with statement earrings, dainty gold chains, hoops in every finish, and layering bracelets–and yet, I am always seeing more that I just have to have. 

That was definitely the case this week when, as I researched and discovered Black-owned small businesses to support, I came across countless truly amazing jewelry brands—and I knew that I needed to share them with as many people as possible. Not only did I text my friends links to what seems like a million necklaces and DM my sister “just one more pair of earrings” at least 10 times, but I also wanted to round them up for my fellow jewelry-loving Everygirls. 

So prepare your wallet and Instagram follow button, and check out these 18 awesome Black-owned jewelry brands:

 

1. Swanky Designs

Handmade clay and brass jewelry for when you want to make a statement. 

 

2. Oma the Label

All of the staple, timeless gold jewelry you could ever dream of. 

 

3. Simply Artrageous

Handmade, fun, and unique earrings and other accessories to spice up any outfit.

 

4. Jam + Rico

Jewelry inspired by the artist’s cultural connection to her Caribbean ancestors.
