As self-purchasing women have become a potent force in the jewelry market, we’ve seen a proliferation of collections that speak to female empowerment and well-being. This season, a handful of fine jewelry brands have created styles bearing inspirational words designed to bolster the spirit. Zoë Chicco’s new Mantra collection comprises coins engraved with phrases such as I Can and I Will and Find a Way or Make One; Eden Presley added to her customizable Mantra series with bracelets that spell out (in diamonds!) sentiments including Have Courage, Be Kind; while designer Jane Winchester’s signature coin pendants feature inscriptions such as Strong and Gardez Bien (French for Guard Well)—reminders, she says, “of your own strength and the positive ways you protect yourself and those you love.”

Montreal-based jewelry designer Sofia Ajram, founder of the Sofia Zakia collection, designed the 14k gold With All Love ring as “an homage to Frida Kahlo’s romantic and vibrant body of work,” she says. The whimsical ring, which would make a supersweet wedding or commitment band, features a tiny hand adorned with a diamond cuff holding a ribbon—a symbol of eternal love.
