14 (Simple, Over-the-Top, and In-Between) Pieces of Jewelry From Black Designers

Enter: the Black-owned jewelry list, a compilation of rings, necklaces, hoops, chains, and finger caps from brands like Johnny Nelson and OMA the Label, which makes the kind of perfectly vintage-looking pieces you'll want to slip on with every outfit Founded by Johnny Nelson in 2017, the jewelry line is best known for honoring important cultural figures through wearable sculpture, which takes the form of necklaces and rings The first time I saw Nelson's jewelry up close was backstage at Pyer Moss's NYFW spring/summer 2020 show, where the models wore the faces of Black music icons like Missy Elliott, Nina Simone, and Erykah Badu around their necks, in their hair, and on their hands.

Using upcycled materials, the brand creates jewelry with a vintage feel, ranging from delicate pearl earrings to chunky gold and Lucite hoops For an industrial take on hoop earrings, we recommend these carabiner-inspired ones from jewelry brand Nikao, founded by self-taught British designer Lisa-Marie Carter, and available in 18-karat gold and rhodium-plated brass On the fine jewelry front there's Octave Jewelry, a Brooklyn-based brand that makes sterling-silver pieces inlaid with hand-cut stones.

Founded in 2017 by Gina Love and her husband Steven Feldman, Auvere makes handcrafted, high-karat gold jewelry in classic, timeless designs. . More
