Jewelry has the power to transform a moment, a mood, a life. This is the design philosophy that Brooklyn-based designer Lauren Bedford Russell follows in creating her fine jewelry collection, Lyon Fine Jewelry. The collection is predominantly comprised of Black Rhodium Sterling Silver and paired with Black Diamonds, Black Jade and the occasional touch of Gold. Russell takes pride in using only conflict-free gemstones and is committed to “Made in America”. The designer is committed to doing good through good-looking jewelry. In fact, there are four charity bracelets which give back including; the equality bracelet (proceeds benefit the Human Rights Foundation), the eternity bracelet (benefiting the American Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals) as well as a rock the vote bracelet (benefiting Rock the Vote).
