Ivaka Trump makes it all look easy. From her various business endeavors, to family life as a wife and mother, to her philanthropic efforts, she seems to have mastered finding the balance in life. At the time of this writing, she’s not available to talk with us because she’s in the makeup chair getting ready for a photo shoot with Vogue magazine. The day before, she was revealing renovations to the Trump National Doral Miami, announcing the expansion of the hotel division into South America with the Trump Hotel Rio de Janeiro, and tweeting (@IvankaTrump) this inspirational quote from Florence Nightingale: “I attribute my success to this; I never gave up or took any excuse.” All the while, encouraging people to sip her signature Starbucks drink: a tall nonfat raspberry white chocolate mocha latte.
Trump’s entrepreneurial drive is in high gear with her fine jewelry designs, Ivanka Trump Collection. She sits in her own demographic here, designing and marketing to women like herself, who “have a strong sense of themselves, value exquisite workmanship, and wear the most important jewelry with a kind of off-handed elegance.”
The collection is carried locally at Louis Anthony Jewelers, where sales and merchandising associate Amie Guarino says, “I like it because it’s a blend of classic and new; it has a timeless appeal. The collection is made with gold and precious materials with a lasting value.” We love the earrings that explode with color, especially the deep blue velvet and azure tones Trump chose for her drop earrings. When asked for her best advice to women looking to create a signature look this season, Trump answers with enthusiasm, “Take a trend, and make it your own!” We think we’re starting with a pair of those gorgeous blue earrings!

Yellow gold is Trump’s favorite spring trend. “From chunky bracelets to large necklaces, yellow gold was seen all over the runway last September. One of my favorite pieces is my Metropolis Cuff. It’s definitely a very refined statement piece.”
