This Plus-Size Line is Changing the Jewelry Game

There are tons of amazing plus-size clothing options, and now you can add accessories to match your outfit.

Universal Standard, a brand featuring items for sizes 10 to 28, has launched a limited-edition plus-size jewelry collection that includes necklaces, chokers, bracelets, earrings, and rings. All of the items are under $70. The accessories are designed to comfortably fit larger body types.

Co-founder Alexandra Waldman explains to Glamour that the idea came about when she began getting frustrated with standard jewelry, noting that many of the pieces she used to try to wear simply didn't feel right.

"Even longer necklaces don’t fall in the right spot on the front of the body. Everything tends to look clipped, cheap, or semi-disposable," she adds. "I’m a grown woman, I don’t want to wear an adjustable rings that I have to squeeze together around my finger."

Universal Standard's offerings take care of this issue, though. The plus-size jewelry collection looks sleek and sophisticated and fills a major gap in the marketplace. You can shop the pieces on Universal Standard’s website.
