Meet Jewelry Desgner and Mama of Two, Ariel Gordon

Written by Erin Feher


Ready to have your day brightened? Today’s mama is an expert at making a statement, whether it be with her pattern-happy house, bold red lip, or signature jewels, often set with colorful stones. Ariel Gordon is the creative and business force behind the cult-favorite Ariel Gordon Jewelry, and after spending the day with her, we are as enamored with her style of living (travel, travel, travel!) and parenting (“I don’t ever say, ‘Good job’ rather I say ‘Look at you! You did it!’ It’s a subtle semantic shift but it goes a long way towards them feeling self-actualized.”) as we are with her jewelry! Today, the SoCal native shows us around her adopted NorCal home, opens up about navigating motherhood after the tragic loss of her own, talks about why she has been spending way more time at the U.S.-Mexico border, and shares some serious parenting-wisdom gems. Click through for the full tour and interview with Ariel and her adorable kiddos, Luca, 5, and Mia, 2.

Plus, if you’re in San Francisco this weekend, on December 15th you can meet Ariel in person and shop some of AGJ’s best offerings when she pops-up at our holiday-themed MOTHER Market, going down at Fort Mason Center on Sunday, December 15th, 2019, 10am-5pm

    What an amazing series of photos! Ariel’s feet are absolutely beautiful. The best pictures are #2 (gorgeous bare foot, long cute toes, and lovely pedicure), #11 (breathtaking shot of Ariel’s bare feet and her beautiful pedicured toes. I see a toe ring as well!), and #45 (perhaps the best shot of the series. Ariel’s precious toes look so cute and her bare soles are so lovely!). Thank you for sharing your beautiful feet, Ariel!
