Known for representing ethnic beauty and encouraging individuality and unique, personal style,  Afrobella regularly showcases amazing fashion finds, tastemaker interviews, star-studded event coverage and much more. Her blog is a continual celebration of women all shades of beautiful and her readers are enlightening, entertaining, intelligent and glamorous, friendly, fabulous and fun.

Afrobella's Fave: Seafoam Ammonite & Ruby Necklace ($395) 

Afrobella is a longtime fan of Nina Nguyen jewelry and has worn her pieces on the red carpet and all over the world.  We asked Afrobella to choose her favorite piece of jewelry from Nina's current collection and to share why she loved it.  Here is what she said, “I’m fascinated by history and jewelry with meaning and I love the way Nina has used ammonite in her jewelry. The fossils of these extinct marine invertebrates, juxtaposed with rubies makes this necklace one worth treasuring. It’s a conversation piece, and it’s stunningly beautiful.”  Explore www.afrobella.com for the latest in beauty, fashion and fabulous living.
