Viv&Ingrid's mission is simple: inspire happiness through beautiful jewelry. Now, doesn't that sound like the ideal Mother's Day gift?
Bay Area natives, childhood friends, and co-designers, Vivian Wang and Ingrid Chen, create free-spirited yet refined designs for the modern woman. Each piece is designed and made right here in California, and sold online and at their Berkeley brick and mortar, Viv&Ingrid at Oxford Hall.
In addition to giving a cherished new piece, with A-list stars like Uma Thurman and Sandra Bullock on Viv&Ingrid's celebrity roster, you'll be giving mom some seriously bragging rights, too.
