In the spirit of Women’s History Month, let’s talk about girl power! We all know an incredibly strong lady in our lives. Whether it be a mother, sister, daughter, or friend, there is someone out there we admire. Although each and every one of us could conquer the world in front of us if we wanted to, here’s some history on a few powerful ladies who have already done so for themselves.
Queen Victoria (1819-1901)
Queen Victoria accomplished many great things during her lifetime and reign – so many that the age during which she ruled is commonly referred to as the “Victorian Era”. Taking to the throne at the age of 18, she saw major reforms to the British education system, which was only the beginning of the major changes she was to make for her empire. She eventually led on to make significant political, cultural, and military changes, as well as abolishing slavery throughout the British colonies.
She was always in dazzling jewels and looking incredibly gorgeous as she made all these changes. Get the look fit for a queen at Studio 703 with our 18K Gold Studded cuff and our Cubed Diamond Necklace.
Marie Curie (1867-1934)
Marie Curie founded the science of radioactivity (she even invented the word) and paved the way for many scientists that followed behind her. Her studies led to effective cures for cancer, as well as many other incredible discoveries and achievements. Curie was the first woman in history to earn the Nobel Prize, as well as the first PERSON, not just woman, to win the Nobel Prize a second time.
Amelia Earhart (1897-1939)
Amelia Earhart defied all expectations of a “typical” lady. After visiting an aviation expo, she knew piloting was her calling. Soon after beginning flying lessons, she purchased her first plane named “Canary.” She set the world altitude record for a woman – 14,000 feet, then again at 18,415 feet a few years later. In 1932, she became the first woman to fly across the pacific ocean, all the while setting seven women’s speed and aviation records.
She put her stamp on many industries including the fashion industry. Create a bold look to match this extraordinary woman with our Chunky Rhodium and Diamond Ring or a Rutilated Quartz Charm Necklace.
Beyoncé Knowles, aka Queen B, may not be a figure in history quite yet, but is everyone’s favorite modern day queen. Born in our very own city, Houston, Texas, she first captured the attention of the masses as the lead vocalist in Destiny’s Child. She later established a dominating presence as a solo artist after releasing her debut album, Dangerously in Love, which won her five Grammy’s. Her solo career has led her to many accomplishments including multiple Grammy’s and having the honor of preforming at the Super Bowl halftime show. Seeing as though everyone knows all the words of at least one of her smash hits, no matter who you are, we’d say she has more than made her mark in the music industry and her name will be known for generations.
Girls have the power to change the world, so lets get out there and do it!
