Aurate is a sustainable, New York City-based direct-to-consumer brand that crafts its wares using 100 percent recycled gold and ethically-sourced diamonds.
To announce her decision to sign on as an Aurate investor, Washington designed a 4-piece capsule of sleek jewelry centered on the lioness's symbol, an emblem of power. A gold lion head pendant hangs from small hoop earrings, a dual chain bracelet, and a necklace. The pendant can also be purchased separately.
There is also a philanthropic aspect of the company, with twenty percent of proceeds from all pendant sales go to women's activism group Supermajority.
The Kerry Washington x Aurate "Lioness" collection ranges from $150 to $530 on the Aurate website.
