In these trying times, the jewelry industry is seeing more collaborative efforts between brands to bring things forward. One such collaboration is the one between Kendra Scott and premier class jewelry provider and digital retailer Balfour. The pair have partnered to launch a new collection of class jewelry including rings and necklaces, customizable for each student. 

According to a statement given by Scott Blevins, Senior Vice President at Balfour, “Balfour is focused on reinventing tradition, and this partnership accomplishes exactly that. The Kendra Scott collection combines personalization with designer fashion in a way never before seen in the class jewelry market.”

There will be eight brand new ring styles as well as three pendant necklaces. Choices between 18 stone colors and 13 metal types allow students to have their best custom fit with each piece they order. 

“It is an honor to launch Kendra Scott’s first design collaboration with such a respected brand name as Balfour. By pairing Balfour’s commitment to tradition with our take on trend and customization, I believe this collection offers seniors a fresh, exciting way to celebrate when they need it most,” said Kendra Scott, Founder, and CEO.
