Equestrian jewelry designer Karina Brez is paying tribute to the untamed spirit of the American West with her latest signature collection, Cowgirl LUV, an ode to the inspiring mountains and cities that landscape of the USA. The collection features stackable rings that artfully symbolize various mountain ranges with each mountain range doubling as a cowgirl name, embodying the spirit of adventure and independence.
Karina Brez has crafted six distinct stackable ring styles that encapsulate the essence of the Sierra Nevada, the towering Denali, and the legendary Mount Whitney. The Sierra Nevada, often referred to as the “Range of Light,” stretches majestically across California and Nevada, offering a panorama of breathtaking peaks and valleys. Its snow-capped summits and ancient forests have provided an enduring muse for artists and adventurers alike. The essence of the Sierra Nevada is captured in delicate yet powerful Sierra stackable rings within the Cowgirl LUV Collection with each echoing the natural contours and beauty of this celebrated mountain range.
Standing tall as North America’s highest peak, Denali commands a profound presence in the Alaskan wilderness. Its icy, towering façade looms over a landscape of untamed wilderness, a testament to nature’s raw power and resilience. In Cowgirl LUV, Denali’s spirit is channeled through its namesake designs that reflect its stoic grandeur, allowing wearers to carry a piece of this majestic peak with them, wherever they may roam.
For the Cowgirl LUV Collection, Karina Brez’s artistic vision extends beyond the mountains, celebrating American Western cities and states with five captivating hoop earring styles: Montana, Aspen, Dakota, Sedona, and Dallas. Known as “Big Sky Country,” Montana boasts vast open spaces, rugged terrain, and an undeniable sense of freedom. The Montana Diamond and Turquoise earrings in the Cowgirl LUV collection evoke the grandeur of this state with their open, airy design reminiscent of the endless horizons.
Renowned for its elegant ski resorts and alpine charm, Aspen, Colorado, is a place where sophistication meets the untamed wilderness. The Aspen Diamond and Turquoise earrings in the collection embody this unique blend of refinement and nature with their intricate, slope-like design.
The Dakotas are known for their wide-open plains, prairies, and the enchanting Badlands. The Dakota Diamond and Turquoise earrings in Cowgirl LUV embrace the simplicity and rugged elegance of this region, with a design reminiscent of the rolling hills, reflecting the untamed beauty that defines the Dakotas.
Arizona’s Sedona is celebrated for its striking red rock formations and spiritual energy, alongside its nod to luxury with its world-famous spas. The Sedona Diamond and Turquoise earrings are a tribute to the unique energy, natural beauty, and opulence of Sedona.
The heart of Texas, Dallas, embodies the vibrant spirit of the Lone Star State with its blend of modernity and Western tradition. The Dallas Diamond and Turquoise earrings in the Cowgirl LUV collection capture the city’s cosmopolitan flair with their contemporary, urban design. The jewels embody the essence of places cowgirls roam and ride, allowing wearers to carry a piece of their adventurous spirit wherever they go.
The Cowgirl LUV collection showcases exquisite turquoise, which provides a vibrant, authentic touch to each creation. Complemented by delicate pink sapphires and dazzling diamonds, the jewels exude luxury, allowing every cowgirl to experience opulence in their everyday life.
