Founded in 2005 by Stephanie Owen, Elizabeth Cole collections offer feminine, glamorous jewelry that is thoughtfully designed and meticulously handcrafted by artisans in the United States. Born from her appreciation of design and traditional training in jewelry making, Owen’s signature colorful pieces are designed to be worn every day, conveying a sense of optimism with an authentic quality. Inspiration is primarily drawn from shapes and colors of stones and materials sourced from around the world. Using a combination of vintage and new stones, each is individually selected and placed within the setting according to size, brilliance and color, creating a pattern of light that highlights the body. Other inspirational elements derive from a number of sources including interior design and the beauty of nature, particularly the romantic landscapes of the American West. Past collaborations include Zac Posen’s Spring 2012 and Fall 2012 runway and pre-collections. Owen counts Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis, Eva Mendes, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blige among her fans.
