Anabel Higgins Jewelry began during the designer’s recovery from breast cancer. As the collection began to evolve, she found a passion for shaping beautiful pieces to express a woman’s unique sense of style. The initial collection takes its inspiration from vintage sporting medals popular in Britain during the first half of the 20th Century. The Anabel Higgins’ Heritage Collection is the re-shaping of these antique medals for today. The jewelry is fabricated in Los Angeles, and with every sale, a portion goes toward funding breast cancer research!
I had to know more about this lovely lady and her charitable jewels:
Expanding the Anabel Higgins Heritage Collection of British Sporting Medals to include additional vintage inspired pieces with a modern twist. I am currently designing Pendants featuring 19th Century hard stone cameos with 18k or Fine Silver surrounds and diamond bales. I am also working on a Collection based on Victorian love tokens which will include turquoise and diamonds.
Actually, I practiced law for 13 years as a litigator! I stopped lawyering to raise 3 children. Nonetheless, my passion for collecting runs deep. I am an avid furniture collector; mainly 18th and 19th Century English and French pieces. Paintings, silhouettes, and antique jewelry round out my continuing repertoire. I am an amateur student of art history and am always looking to further my education. I am currently attending a seminar at The Huntington Art Collections entitled “Fashion and Art”. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a mastectomy and between several surgeries, I started Anabel Higgins Jewelry. I was looking for a healing, creative endeavor to take my mind away from my treatments. Nothing pleases me more than creating beauty for people to adore.
Watching people wear my jewelry with style and passion!
One of my primary goals for Anabel Higgins Jewelry is to donate a majority of the proceeds to charities focused on breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Thus, the more successful the business, the greater the donations and hopefully, the greater the impact.
