Born and raised on Jeweler’s Row, the gem phenom has maintained the Windy City as her home and has found great success launching her business here as well. And clearly her surroundings are more than enough to inspire. Her signature line, Dana Rebecca Designs, is chalk full of timeless pieces along with modern and trendy jewels that are equally as high-end. She has her own bridal line and custom services and counts Blake Lively, Jessica Alba, Kristen Stewart, and Carrie Underwood as just a few of her loyal celebrity following.

It’s no surprise that we are a little more than obsessed with the Dana Rebecca bridal line. Call us biased on all this bride and bling, but this perfectly selected array of stone shapes and settings is an accessible, yet luxurious approach to picking the perfect ring.

Either way, you are getting a piece of fine jewelry that is totally unique and one-of-a-kind.
