About The Jewelry:
THE DIASPORA NECKLACE
This necklace is dedicated to and influenced by the beautiful and diverse group of people who make up the Black Community. Part of the Black Is Beautiful Collection, this necklace highlights natural onyx gemstone beads with four different finishes to represent the vast diversity within the black community.The necklace was designed to have the toggle clasp worn at the front but can be worn on the side or in the back as well. It also features 7 gold roundel stations, which is a symbolic number in African culture to represent wholeness and completeness. Each piece in this collection also features a 14K Yellow Gold tag engraved with the continent of Africa.
“When thinking of a way to honor my culture this month in particular, I thought first of the experiences I’ve had as an African American woman - especially in America. We are so often given names that do not embody who we are. I wanted to make a statement that is both true and greatly needed. As a mother and member of society, I feel that representing a true depiction of what Blackness is and can be so vital to the growth and maturity of our world. Black History is American History, and honoring those who made our very existence what it is today is so important to me.
When you buy a piece from this collection, you’re not only celebrating Black History, but it’s present and future as well. The care that was taken by our goldsmiths with my designs is remarkable. We have a jeweler on our team, Jackie who worked so diligently to ensure that these piece looked and felt exactly how I needed them to. She knew just how important this collection and the message that “Black Is Beautiful” is. So, I’m beyond honored to partner with Brent Miller on this amazing collection and work alongside such an incredible team who honors, respects and sees me as a person”.
