Mogul Must-Haves: Vrai & Oro Black Friday Special |

Here’s a sneak peek at Vrai & Oro’s exclusive design, 100% Recycled Black Diamond Earrings, for Black Friday.

It’s no secret; Vrai & Oro is one of my all-time favorite companies. Founders Vanessa Stofenmacher and Chelsea Nicholson go to great lengths to create high-quality, modern, classic fine jewelry designs that we’ll want to wear with confidence everyday – without the traditional pricing markups. Plus! Many designs are available in 14K yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold.

The limited edition they’ll be releasing will be a pair of black diamond earrings where the diamonds will be inverted, set in a simple 14k solid gold prong setting. They’re delicate, but with an edge. “The best part is we are using all recycled diamonds to promote minimizing the wasteful consumption traditionally associated with Black Friday”, says Nicholson.

Perfect holiday gift for someone special (or for yourself)!

“We believe in transparency, therefore we never inflate our prices in order to discount. Instead, we created an exclusive design only available Black Friday – Cyber Monday”, says Stofenmacher. Price will be $125.
