If you’re on the hunt for gorgeous, unique statement jewelry pieces that are one of a kind, go no further than our latest designer Kara Ross. As a child, Ross visited Africa with her parents and to commemorate the trip, they allowed her to select a native gemstone to be made into a piece of jewelry. A love affair was born and today the talented designer has created jewelry items using a variety of materials, including innovative and unexpected elements. She has made pieces for private clients including President Obama and the First Lady, creating exclusive, exquisite gifts made from Magnolia wood originated from the White House lawn for guests, visitors and employees of the White House.
