Over the past few years, jewelry featuring all the colors of the rainbow has been a staple of the luxe jewelry scene. But nothing compares to the parade of exquisitely colorful baubles introduced in recent weeks, in preparation for Pride month.

“I believe in equality for all and until the LGBTQ+ community is treated justly under the law. Their human rights and freedom are in jeopardy,” says Harwell Godfrey designer Lauren Godfrey. “I created an heirloom-quality version of the iconic rainbow so that we can visibly show our support everyday: for Pride and beyond.”
