Have you ever walked into a jewelry shop, browsed the jewelry section of a department store, or tried shopping for some jewelry pieces online and felt like everything kind of looked the same? Us too. While we love a simple, nondescript layering necklace or dainty ring as much as the next girl, we also would like our jewelry to help us stand out rather than blend in. Enter Alison Lou, a New York-based designer whose emoji-clad jewelry is unlike that of any other brand—and celebrities have taken notice. Since her emoticon-inspired first collection, she's gone on to expand her offerings to include intimates and loungewear, explored equally uncharted and unexpected new motifs, and garnered approval from the likes of Rihanna, Blake lively, Kate Hudson, and more.
