It’s something about seeing us adorned in gold.
If you’re into gold jewelry and Black women-owned brands, you’ve arrived at the best corner of the internet. We are all about supporting Black women-owned jewelry lines and during Women’s History Month, even more so. This list highlights some brands that make us look and feel real good in gold.
Black women-owned jewelry lines
An ode to the many meanings of being strong, SOKO is a brand that is made to celebrate powerful women. Not only is SOKO dedicated to being effortlessly stylish, but it also has a social purpose. Dedicated to supporting women across the Diaspora and beyond, the brand is an all-rounder. SOKO supports Kenyan women by using mobile tech to connect them to a global workforce and center marginalized Kenyan artisans. You can trust that SOKO jewelry is 24k gold-plated recycled brass, and the colored products are made with locally sourced recycled glass. As a women-led, people-first brand, you know that your jewelry glow-up has ethical roots.
A Brooklyn-based creation that you’re sure to fall in love with. This gender-neutral Black woman-owned jewelry line presents all the handcrafted adornments you can dream of. V.B, is the Haitian-American designer behind V. Bellan and offers the perfect mix between contemporary and classic designs. This jewelry brand has developed quite the representation with the likes of Issa Rae donning some jewelry in Insecure. The customizable chains, stackable rings, and more make for perfect gift items too.
A Black women-owned jewelry line to bring in peace and adorn you in wholesomeness. We love Mahnal, for many reasons, first, because their collections are always rooted in meaning, but also because the brand allows Black women to romanticize life with ethereal heirloom jewelry. Mahnal expertly shows us how to embrace living a slower, more intentional life with artisanal solid brass designs. If you’re looking for a more intimate experience, you can visit the St. Louis studio to experience the magic first-hand. Jhene Aiko recently wore the brand during a pregnancy shoot, if you catch the vibe, and the pieces were stunning on her.
This nostalgic jewelry brand is for bold, courageous statement-makers, and no one else. Yam is a made-to-order, handmade jewelry brand based in Queens, New York. Morgan Thomas is the founder and designer behind the jewelry line and created the line after Thomas’ late mother who introduced her to jewelry making at a young age. Expect to find everything from vintage silhouettes to playful designs. Yam is all about stunning, fun jewelry that ‘illicits collective memories and moments of familiarity’.
Omi Woods is the fine jewelry line that you need to have on your radar. If Black women-owned jewelry lines are your thing, Omi Woods is the collectible, African-rooted, generational brand that you’ll be proud to own. Omi Woods takes its name from Jamaican founder Ashley Alexis McFarlane’s Afro-Indigenous heritage. Omi means ‘water’ in the Yoruba language and Jamaica takes its name from the original Taíno naming of the island Xaymaca, translating to the land of wood and water. As a brand that prioritizes ethical jewelry making, it has caught the eye of many, including Gabrielle Union, Andrea Lewis, and also featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things list.
