13 Women of Color Jewelry Designers You Should Know

These days, it seems more important than ever to be conscious about where your money is going. We're not just talking about what organizations you're donating to. Just as buying local (over large multinational companies) can be a political choice, consciously choosing to buy only from women of color can be one way to offer solidarity and support.

Though Valentine's Day has come and gone, we've specifically bookmarked these 13 international WOC jewelry designers for all of our future gifting, "you should be gifting me this," and #selfcare needs. A fair warning: You may just find yourself "accidentally" adding some of these to your cart.
