Kara Ross’ affection for jewelry design began at the tender age of 13 on an African safari, when her parents gifted her with a native gemstone of her choice. Upon returning home, she designed her own ring with her chosen tourmaline. She still has the ring today — along with her namesake line of luxe jewelry and handbags. Consider the Kara Ross collection a modern take on classic luxury. Exotic skins and genuine stones are her signature, from colorful lizard-skin clutches to larger-than-life cocktail rings. Each piece is uniquely bold, geometric and guaranteed to make a statement.
