Olive Loves: Jewelry by Joanna Laura Constantine

Accessories Designer Joanna Laura Constantine grew up in Lebanon and it is plain to see how her native country’s Middle Eastern roots and culture influence and inspire her jewelry designs. From rings and bracelets to earrings and necklaces, all of Joanna’s statement pieces are emblazoned with bold colors and striking stones, crystals and pearls. Retail prices range from $70 to $200 for bracelets, $60 to $150 for rings, $150 to $400 for necklaces and $100 to $200 for earrings.

“In this economy, I want women to feel good about buying new pieces without spending outside of their budgets,” said Joanna Laura Constantine. “I design statement pieces for women who would never sacrifice their sense of style.”
