Colombian jewelry designer Paula Mendoza created her “New York Icons” collection as a tribute to her personal journey of living in New York. Each piece is designed with iconic women in mind: “My perception of the kind of woman who I admire and would love to adorn in my jewelry,” Paula says. “Women who, for their talent and strength, inspire me and make me feel proud to be both a woman and a jewelry designer.” With the collection debuting exclusively on Moda Operandi, we can safely say that we’d feel proud to wear any of these gorgeous gems! —H.B.
