Hi.

Welcome to my blog.

My absolute favorite things to wear are pieces that have a deeper meaning than meets the eye.  Whether the meaning is just for me or obvious to others, it sets my mood to take control of the day.

Jewelry can make such a huge statement to your outfit.  But what if a piece of jewelry not only made you sparkle, but told your story as well?

Claudia Montez created Isabelle Grace Jewelry to do just that.  She created gorgeous pieces as a way to honor breast cancer fighters and survivors.  Her mother, grandmother, and cousins have all been affected by breast cancer.

“My mom is a two-time breast cancer survivor,” says Claudia.  “The original breast cancer designs were inspired by her fight.  Strength and Dignity was inspired by her battle.”

Ten percent of the proceeds from the Survivor and Strength and Dignity cuffs are donated to Breast Cancer Awareness organizations.  During Breast Cancer Awareness in October, this is bumped to 20 percent! 

Claudia didn’t stop there.  Isabelle Grace Jewelry also donates 10 percent of proceeds from the Survivor necklace to breastcancer.org.  

Although I have been fortunate enough to not know this specific battle, the term “survivor” holds near and dear to my heart.  These items aren’t just for survivors of breast cancer.  Everyone has survived or is fighting something in their lives, in their own way. These pieces are for those who want to keep moving forward and make a difference while they do.

Named after her two daughters, Sofia Isabelle and Gabriella Grace, Isabelle Grace Jewelry also donates 10 percent of proceeds from their Wear and Share Pink Collection to the American Cancer Society.

“Anytime you are in the position to help or to bring light to a cause, you should try to in whatever way you can,” explains Claudia.  “I just did it as a small way to honor my mother and grandmother.”

The jewelry pieces are beyond stunning.  You can even create your own piece by personalizing rings, necklaces, and bracelets.  The one-of-a-kind pieces are the perfect gift for Mother's Day!  Whether your mom is a survivor, fighter, or just loves pretty jewels, you're sure to win son or daughter of the year.

It’s hard to purchase something made in the States, but Claudia felt it was important to keep production in the Isabelle Grace Jewelry studio.

“I think in today’s world where everything is mass produced and made in other countries, it’s important to keep control of your creative process,” says Claudia.  “Keeping our production in our studio allows us to do that and create new designs often and offer customer modifications. Quite honestly, we are making special pieces that are important to the people paying for them.”

Isabelle Grace Jewelry works with local community causes and organizations year round.  Claudia says she would eventually like to be involved with children’s causes.  Soon, the jewelry site will implement an option allowing people to donate to a cause partnered with the brand, and Isabelle Grace Jewelry will match the donation.  

Claudia continues her journey to give back, one beautifully designed piece at a time.
