We unearth the fearlessness of femininity with bold statement jewelry. 

Tradition is not our thing. We choose the sparkle of lucite over diamonds.

Big over dainty.

And our designs echo the strong geometric forms of modern architecture and sculpture.

The Bold Tribe

The Bold Tribe is a diverse group of progressive thinkers. We are inspired by risk-takers — both in fashion and in life. Together, we are defying jewelry convention and fueling the spirit of strong-willed women—making us, the gold standard of Bold.



Bold Standard is an independent, female-owned small business offering original designs handcrafted by artist Kathleen Grebe from her studio in Raleigh, NC. 

Her raw materials are mostly sourced from U.S. vendors, including sustainably harvested American hardwoods purchased from a family business in Wisconsin.

Kathleen takes both a commercial and artistic approach to making jewelry. She enjoys making affordable options that everyone can enjoy in addition to making art pieces that push the envelope with innovative design.  

In addition to the online store, Bold Standard jewelry can be found at the Baltimore Museum of Art, shopSCAD (Savannah, GA) and various boutiques in the Southeast.
