Luxury Items of Your Dreams – Made by Women

Mar 23, 2020 | Fashion | 0 comments

If you’re in dire need of some escapism, then this is the post for you!

With the coronavirus pandemic going on, most of us are on lock down and in a constant state of anxiety due to the flood of news reports. Since we are all doing the right thing by staying at home, let’s spend some time daydreaming instead of stressing.

Among all the chaos, we might have forgotten that March is Women’s History Month. In this post, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite luxury brands made by women. I’ll show you that some accessories can transform not only your look, but also your self-confidence. You can be in lady-boss mode to jet-setter lifestyle all with one outfit.


Gumuchian is a luxury jewelry company that I have posted about in the past. Not just because they have magnificent jewelry, but because of everything that Gumuchian stands for.
On any given day, if you walk into the Gumuchian office in Manhattan, you will see several women buzzing around, all with one goal in mind: to bring women the most exquisite, timeless and perfectly executed jewelry they have ever seen or worn. Gumuchian’s slogan is “Designed by Women for Women.”

Their founder and visionary, Anita Gumuchian, and her daughters Myriam and Patricia, carry on a family legacy in the jewelry industry that dates back over 100 years.

The artistry and beauty of their jewelry is evident at first sight. The diamonds and gemstones that they use, along with their unique designs, are what makes this jewelry so incredible to look at and also so very easy to wear. Their office in Manhattan is where all their designs are developed and brought to life by master jewelers. This team of women comes together as one, making each design built to wear with comfort, while lasting a lifetime. This is what it means to be “Designed by Women for Women.”

This is why we are proud to present their pieces to you, since our blog is all about women supporting women!


Kimberly Pucci is another successful businesswoman with a riveting background. Pucci is a worldly woman who, among other ventures, has started her own luxury handbag company. Now, her lines Kimberly Pucci Atelier and Kimberly Pucci Vault, show off her artistic sensibility and unparalleled expertise, which have found their ultimate expression.

Her designs are influenced by her time abroad in Italy. When living in Florence, she was surrounded by art at every turn and she embraced every opportunity to learn more. Who better to learn about style and high-quality accessories from than the Italians?
“Kimberly Pucci Atelier + Vault is an expression of my 20+ year passion for Italian craftsmanship, built on my personal partnerships with Tuscany’s finest jewelry and leathergoods artisans. As an American entrepreneur, I am blessed to have these relationships at the root of my business, and to call the Tuscan people famiglia.” – Kimberly Pucci

Now, with the how hard this pandemic has hit Italy, Kimberly Pucci is donating 20% of every purchase – including Gift Cards – to the Croce Rossa Italiana (Italian Red Cross) to help fund efforts to contain the virus.

Pucci is also doing a very special offer with any purchase of $5,000 or more – you will have the chance to stay in Kimberly Pucci’s own Casa Alina, her 12th-century Tuscan villa, for a complimentary one-week stay when Italy is again open to visitors. You will enjoy the perfect blend of authentic and modern luxury in a truly memorable Tuscan experience!

Now, this is an offer of a lifetime. Instead of daydreaming, you could actually be living it!
