Oh how I love a good pair of earrings. As you may remember, I’ve previously stated my adoration for the past couple seasons’ statement earring trend. I often take a minimalistic or monochromatic outfit and simply add a set of statement earrings to spice it up. There can be such classiness in minimalism, and I’m really starting to discover that more with age (I know, I know.. I’m only 21).
A while back, I was fortunate enough to receive a beautiful set of hand-crafted brass and white druzy quartz earrings from Jimani Collections… and I am simple in love. In addition to creating exquisite, one of a kind pieces that jewellery connoisseurs alike would swoon over, Jimani Collections also provides a source of dependable employment and income for women; as every piece they carry is hand-crafted by Kenyan women. Jimani offers unique training programs where these women are exposed to customized opportunities that help them learn product design and product creation. These women are provided with full-time salaries and benefits during their employment with Jimani, and are provided with external support once they have departed from Jimani’s program, and have started businesses of their own. And; in an effort to support the Kenyan economy, Jimani Collections sources the majority of their raw materials in Kenya, and most of their supplies are bought in the industrial areas or in downtown Nairobi. Now that’s a jewellery line I can get on top of!
Keep scrolling to see their beautiful Aura set that I was lucky enough to receive!
Stunning, am I right? If only you could see the sparkle that they have in-person through your phone/ computer/ tablet screen. For me, it’s the white quartz that really sets this pair apart from others in my earring collection. And they’re so versatile. In this post, I chose to pair them with a sundress; however, they’d also be a PERFECT accent to any holiday look. I’m sure the beautiful ladies in your life would just love to receive them as a gift this holiday season too! A stunning set of earrings, all while supporting fellow women’s artistic abilities and dependable employment? Seems like a win-win to me!
This specific pair of earrings that I’m rocking are the Jimani Collection’s Aura set- you can find them here. These elegant earrings are composed of both hand-crafted brass and white druzy quartz. The sparkle these earrings give off from the sun’s reflection are incomparably stunning.

All in all, Jimani Collections is a company which both carries impeccably stunning pieces of jewellery, and encourages women’s success by creating incomparable opportunities that allow them to thrive. “Investment in women leads to healthier, better-educated families and; ultimately, more prosperous communities.” Which is exactly why I highly encourage you to check out their inventory. Shop their one of a kind pieces here!! What gal doesn’t want a one of a kind, hand-crafted piece of jewelry, that also helps other gals in the meantime?
