How has being a Trump influenced your style when it comes to jewelry and accessories?
I grew up loving jewelry, especially admiring my mom's amazing collection of diamonds, pearls, and colored gems. I would often "steal" jewelry from her wardrobe and parade around throughout the house. Now that I own a store, my mom is constantly coming over and getting revenge! She borrows and buys my pieces all the time. I'm glad I've been able to create pieces that appeal to women from all generation—jewelry should be transcendental of age. For my own wedding, I'd probably wear estate pieces from my mother's collection or from my boutique. I love antique jewelry because you can feel the history when you wear it. At that point, you are part of a select group of women who have been blessed enough to wear and enjoy that piece throughout time.
Since jewelry is such a passion of mine, I sought to create a collection that complements women of all ages and walks of life. From the enamel bracelets that are fun and youthful to significant diamond pieces that exude elegance to antique estate pieces, the variety my collection provides speaks true to the integrity of the brand and my personal style as well. My favorite piece is the diamond briolette tassel earrings. They are chic, stunning and still versatile enough to be worn with jeans and a great top. My mother also loves these, which shows how trans-generational some jewelry can be. —Ivanka Trump
