In 2019, Georgina Jewelry entered into an exciting partnership with David and Noelle Manica, to continue the expansion of Georgina Jewelry worldwide. This partnership has brought many opportunities to Georgina Jewelry. We have been featured at markets in Dallas, Las Vegas, and Atlanta to grow wholesale opportunities with boutiques across the country. We have also formed beneficial partnerships to sell our products through Halls in Kansas City and Wolf & Badger in London. Georgina Jewelry can also be found in showrooms including The Copper Room and Flying Solo in New York City.
Looking towards the future, Georgina Jewelry is thrilled to continue presenting at fashion weeks worldwide, including New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. We are also honored to be pioneers of the virtual fashion week movement originated during 2020 by unveiling our latest collection in the International Digital Fashion Week created by FNL Network that premiered on September 5th, and we are looking forward to presenting for the first time with Thailand Fashion Week, online on December 4th 2020.
(After a few years of success in our expansion, we felt it was time to introduce the main members of Georgina Jewelry.)
About Georgina Jewelry
Georgina Jewelry is an independent jewelry line created by Kansas City-based designer, Georgina Herrera. Georgina was born in Mexico and moved to the United States with her family. She founded Georgina Jewelry in 2010, after years of working in international business for several companies, including her family’s jewelry company in Mexico. Her years of business success has led her to be nominated for several Women-Owned and Minority-Owned business awards.
Georgina says “the connection between love, art, and tradition is unbreakable and determines who we are.” Her designs are a fusion of fashion trends with her culture and tradition. This gives Georgina a unique and authentic brand with a fresh, modern, yet classic design that truly reflects her passions.
Georgina believes in empowering women to be their most confident selves with her line. She is inspired by the character, strength, and determination of the modern woman. Each piece in the collection is designed to create a unique statement whether it be in the office or at a gala. There is a piece for every woman and every occasion.
Georgina Jewelry has been featured on the runways at Miami Swim Week and at Paris and New York Fashion Weeks. Her pieces are stunning, breathtaking, and memorable -- wearable works of art that will have everyone watching the woman wearing them.
