One-Size-Fits-All Jewelry Wasn't Cutting It, so This Brand Stepped In
The term one size fits all is quite problematic. “All” usually doesn’t include everyone who’s size 2, size 26, in between, and beyond. And this issue isn’t strictly in reference to clothing—jewelry sizing can prove to be limiting as well when it comes to women who wear size 10 and up. So one brand set out to help.
Universal Standard, a direct-to-consumer site specializing in minimal designs and sizes 10 through 28, launched an accessory collection this week that caters to a long-ignored group. There’s currently “a lack of jewelry options made to look right on a larger form,” the brand said in a press release. “Pieces often pinch, or sit unnaturally on the body, highlighting the lack of specific attention paid to proper scale and overall jewelry design for a larger body type.” The limited-edition collection of styles on Universal Standard’s site addresses these problems. The sleek designs include choker necklaces, rings, bracelets, and more that not only come in extended sizes but are also affordable—each maxing out at $70.
