A mother’s wisdom takes many forms. In Rachel Reinhardt’s case, the form was jewelry design. After her mother—a jeweler in her own right—taught her the craft and inspired her passion, Reinhardt went on to learn the business side by working for other companies. She launched her line in 1996, intending to create unique, beautiful pieces that possess the power to transform an outfit and lift spirits. Reinhardt still hears her mother’s voice when she’s sketching design ideas, and it has led her to create work that’s been featured regularly in <i>Glamour</i>, <i>InStyle</i>, and <i>Us Weekly</i>.
