As you probably have noticed, I primarily love and wear dainty jewelry. I find it compliments every outfit and I love layering up necklaces to create a unique look. When I posted this outfit on my Instagram Stories over the weekend, I had an overwhelming amount of you ask where my necklaces were from, making me especially excited to be partnering with Ella Stein and share their story and these necklaces with you all today!
Ella Stein is known for their fine jewelry, but beyond that, the message behind their brand is all about ethical sustainability and women empowerment, which I think is incredible. Their jewelry is hand produced in a small village of women in India, allowing these women to be financially stable and empowered by these job opportunities. Importantly, the women who make the jewelry work in a modern, fully air conditioned factory and all receive fair living wages, medical and life insurance, retirement benefits, 6 months paid maternity leave, 4 weeks paid vacation. I don’t usually talk about these attributes in a company, but think it’s so important to applaud those companies that are really making a difference!
Ella Stein’s belief is that “millions of carbon atoms bond to form a diamond – these bonds make the precious stone one of Earth’s toughest natural resources. Like a diamond, when women unite we are unstoppable”. If you step back and take a minute to reflect on this, it is pretty powerful and accurate. I know personally, in the world of blogging, I have been able to meet and connect with some of the most incredible gals, a few which I now call dear friends. When we come together and support each other and lift each other up, everyone succeeds.
So needless to say, I was thrilled when I started getting all the messages from you guys asking about the necklaces, because not only are they gorgeous, they also tell a beautiful story! From dainty rings, stackable bracelets and my personal favorite, necklaces you can layer up, there is a little bit of something for everyone. All their pieces are available in 14k rose gold over sterling silver, 14k yellow gold over sterling silver and sterling silver and they ship worldwide! With the holidays coming up, these pieces would makes a beautiful gift for a friend or family.
A big thanks to Ella Stein for partnering on this post!
