Get to Know Our Newest Jewelry Brands: Mania Mania, Unearthen & Cornelia Webb

Looking for a signature piece for spring? These three wholly unique jewelry lines, all new to Shopbop, are the perfect place to start.

Mania Mania
Described by the W magazine blog as “one of the most talked-about accessories labels right now–for good reason,” Mania Mania jewelry is designed by Australian duo Melanie Kamsler and Tamila Purvis, who find influence in mysticism and magic. The current collection is inspired by Vali Myers, a flamboyant, globetrotting artist whose life took her from Australia to postwar Paris to New York City and back again. The result is a collection of pieces that range from the organic (like the Immortals Ring, pictured) to the delicate and geometric (like the Initiation Necklace).

Unearthen
Unearthen jewelry, founded by NYC-based stylist and designer Gia Bahm, is known for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pendants created from stones and empty bullet casings. The designer selects each stone for its sacred qualities–black tourmaline is said to protect against negativity, while citrine strengthens self-confidence. But there’s more to this line than just necklaces: the Prism Ring was called out as a must-have by Refinery29.

Cornelia Webb
Though she began designing jewelry in her spare time while in medical school, Cornelia Webb’s creations have since earned her the title of Accessory Designer of the Year by Elle Sweden. With the philosophy that jewelry is meant to be integral to an ensemble rather than simply accessorize it, the Stockholm-based designer creates vests, boleros, and even dresses made from chains, creations that truly define the term “statement piece.”
