Although jewelry is worn primarily by women and often purchased by them, only recently has the gender begun to infiltrate the executive levels of the jewelry and watch industry in a significant way.
Much of that progress is because of the efforts of the Women’s Jewelry Association, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. What began as an informal networking group in 1983 has mushroomed into a national organization, with a range of programs and events that now counts more than 1,000 members among its ranks.
"I love to fight and I got into a lot of trouble, so instead, I thought I'd do it professionally," says Bellator MMA fighter Liam McGeary. #wwdfashion (📷: @andyboyle; Interview by @jeanpalmieri; Styled by @thealexbadia)
