Three Blondes is a jewelry line established in 2008 by Summer Rej and Jennifer Meyers. Both raised in NYC, the girls have created a collection of jewelry and accessories that reflect the city they call home. The pieces mesh Upper East Side delicate beauty with Downtown-style chunky chains and oversized crystals, creating one-of-a-kind pieces that really are like no other jewelry you own! Already featured on VogueTV and The Fashion Spot, Three Blondes is an up-and-coming label that you're going to want to get to know!
A few months ago I was offered the opportunity to check out the gorgeous jewelry and accessories of Three Blondes, as well as interview the designers, Summer and Jen. The lovely ladies sent over "The Independent", a gorgeous black crystal and gold necklace, and "The Gala", black crochet gloves with intricate gold beading (both seen above). They were also kind enough to answer a bunch of questions - read on to learn more about Three Blondes Jewelry!
How did you two meet, and how did you decide to create a line of jewelry together?
We met our freshman year of high school when we attended The Calhoun School in New York. We bonded in English class, sharing notes and study questions, but also chatting over clothes we had just picked up from little boutiques near Calhoun - this was back in 1999, when our closets included Miss Sixty, Buggirl, Steve Madden (we both had multiple pairs of the same shoes!), ANY logo tees by Junk Food, Paul Frank or E.Vil, with some Kate Spade or Prada accessories and brands such as Tocca mixed in. We ultimately became the best of friends. We formed a small t-shirt company (imagine lots of logos and embellishments) while we were in college and realized we worked well as business partners, brainstorm ideas that we both believe in, and listen to each others opinions. We also gained experience working internships and jobs in the fashion and art communities which inspired us to create something of our own which would serve as a creative outlet. We also have tons of fun and laughs working together, which is necessary to counter the hard work and endless hours that go into running a business, especially when you are executing each component on your own, as we are. We realized that there was such room for creativity within the world of jewelry and accessories. Since jewelry and hair accessories have always been wardrobe staples of the utmost importance to each of us, we decided to parlay our efforts in that direction. Years later, we're still the best of friends and are so excited with what's in store with Three Blondes currently and in the future. We hope for big things and have grand plans in mind!
