Lauren Harwell Godfrey is the founder and designer of Harwell Godfrey, a bold line of fine jewelry based in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. With aesthetic roots in ancient textiles and ethnic patterns, the collection is handcrafted in 18k gold with precious gemstones, distinctive inlay and ethically-sourced diamonds. Designed with healing energy in mind, each gemstone is thoughtfully selected to enhance the wearer’s experience. Incorporating figurative references to block printing and weaving from cultures long ago, the collection brings a sense of history to modern day precious heirlooms.
With a deep commitment to social causes, designer Lauren Harwell Godfrey launched her Charity Heart series in 2020, donating 100% of proceeds to personally significant nonprofit organizations including NAACP, Futures Without Violence, Human Rights Campaign, Every Mother Counts and World Central Kitchen. The brand’s Northern California atelier is the hub for bespoke creations, where pieces are made with hand-chosen stones, tailored to a favorite color palette or sourced to enhance a mood, energy or feeling.
Harwell Godfrey has been featured on the covers of Vogue and Cosmopolitan and is collected and worn by luminaries including Cynthia Erivo, Hilary Swank, Kamala Harris and Thandiwe Newton.
