Put a Ring on These Black-Owned Jewelry Brands
Shop statement pieces, vintage finds, and everyday bling.
It’s no secret that COVID-19 has had an overwhelming effect on businesses, but the truth of the matter is that Black-owned businesses are at a higher risk of not being able to brave this storm. If there is anything that this year has taught me, it’s to pull up and show support where I can. While some have taken the approach of attending protests or donating to the Black Lives Matter organization, buying from Black-owned businesses is one way of standing in solidarity that can push long-term change against systemic racism.
Being in quarantine has brought out the worst in my impulsive buying habit, however; this past month I have come across an array of Black-owned brands that have officially made me a lifelong customer. One thing I’m always on the hunt for is jewelry. Whether you’re looking for statement pieces, vintage finds, or everyday bling, I’ve done the honors of rounding up these incredible Black-owned jewelry lines. If your love for fine jewelry knows no bounds, and if you’re looking for more ways to show support for the Black community, pull up and be prepared to add these pieces to your cart.

Your continuous support for the Black community doesn’t have to stop at just buying from Black-owned businesses. Impressed with the packaging? Share it. Are you loving their deals and sales? Send their posts to friends and family members you think would enjoy it. One of the best way to carry on with this movement is to share your finds with your closest circle and on social media.
