ABOUT OUR FOUNDER: LULU HAZLE

In 2009, British born Lulu Hazle founded Stella & Ruby with a simple mission: to create beautiful jewelry that women will love to wear.

As a seasoned fashion industry professional with 20+ years of experience working with renowned designers and established brands, Lulu has a keen understanding of what today’s woman wants. She creates Stella & Ruby’s collections drawing on inspiration from art, nature, cultural exchanges, and the exciting world around us.

Wearing the hats of both co-founder and head designer of S&R, Lulu strives to create jewelry that her customers will not only love but will want to wear with pride. Her design-focused brand creates styles “which evoke one’s inner confidence, grace, beauty, and of course sass,” she says proudly.

Stella & Ruby’s sought-after collections are noted for their high-quality craftsmanship and unique designs—traits which have become synonymous with the brand today.

Each of Stella & Ruby’s collections offer women something memorable and special. Lulu creates pieces that are of course beautiful, but also “a bit extra.” And it is precisely that “extra-ness” that has grown to be Stella & Ruby’s signature and point of differentiation amongst competitors.

Lulu is an avid believer in giving back and has woven this into her brand’s core mission. In 2018, she created partnerships with both the ASPCA and Dress for Success. For 2019, and going into the new year, Stella & Ruby has focused its philanthropic efforts to assist smaller, lesser known organizations in an attempt to raise funding and awareness for their causes. No Dogs Left Behind, a phenomenal organization which saves dogs from the horrid cruelty of the Chinese dog meat industry and The Fashion Foundation, a locally based initiative that works with fashion brands to make a positive difference in the lives of children in lower income, neglected New York City public schools are Stella & Ruby’s current beneficiary partners.

Stella & Ruby’s collections are available on the brand website, www.stellaandruby.com. Sold domestically at Nordstrom, Shopbop, Free People, Anthropologie, BLHDN and Von Maur to name a few. Select collections are also available at top retailers in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
