Celebrating Women Jewelry Designers of Carter's Collective for International Women's Day

As a second-generation, women-owned and operated fine jewelry store, Carter's Collective proudly supports women fine jewelry designers from around the world! Since our doors opened in 1986, the Carter women thought... who better to design jewels for women, than other women?

Who run the world? Girls!

Starting with our very own Chae Carter! The owner and president of Carter's Collective Fine Jewelry, Chae designs so many of the pieces you see in our store today and has a hand in curating every single piece of jewelry we select from traveling jewelry shows.

Did you know Chae designed our Bloom Collection? Bloom is Carter's very own engagement ring collection, taking cherished, timeless styles and making every last detail perfect, giving you the opportunity to customize your stack.

Jude Frances' Founder, Jude Steele, designs fabulous fine jewelry for everyday wear! Hoop and huggie earrings, charms, bangles, necklaces... You name it!

Jude uses her unique style and design aesthetic to lead the JudeFrances design team in creating fresh, on trend styles that appeal to a variety of women. Steele has a knack for staying ahead of trends and it's reflected in all of the pieces on display at Carter's.

Introducing one of Team Carter's favorite gemstone jewelry designers, Brecken Farnsworth at Parle! Brecken and Jonathan are a husband and wife duo that create award-winning gemstone designs we can't get enough of.

Brecken started experimenting with designing jewelry for herself, and as her talents progressed over the years, so did the company's glowing reputation for unique designs and rare gemstones. Today, Parle is a powerhouse designer that Team Carter's is honored to partner with year after year.

Another fabulous gemstone jewelry designer Team Carter's is obsessed with... Introducing Kimberly Collins!

Kimberly has always had an interest in beautiful things, growing up with a
professional artist mother and gem collecting father. She jumped at the chance to travel to Nairobi and learn about the tanzanite gemstone business there, laying the groundwork for her true life’s work.

Since 1995, Kimberly has been designing with the most unique and fabulous gemstones she could find, from every corner of the world. We at Carter's are lucky enough to bring these special gems and designs back to the Pinebelt just for you!

Introducing the designer behind so many of Team Carter's favorite fluted designs from The Personalized Collection, Jackie Cohen at My Story Fine Jewelry!

Jewelry celebrates birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and so much more. It symbolizes important milestones and moments in our lives, which is why Jackie's first piece was created, to celebrate the adoption of her daughter, Julia! My Story and Julia were born, and the rest is history.

Another fabulous designer featured in Carter's showcases, Anzie Stein was an accomplished artist, making paintings and etchings when her husband Barry was diagnosed with colon cancer. To help them cope, they
created a line of jewelry to help raise funds for colorectal cancer awareness. The success of their first piece led to the official launch of an entire brand, Anzie Jewelry in 1999.

Anzie and her daughters, Jaclyn and Joanna, are a multi-generational team of women expressing their talent through the design of colorful jewelry based in Montreal, Canada.
