About Allison Claire
About Our Founder, Allison Claire
As an alum, Allison had a hard time finding quality products that represented the love, loyalty, and pride she felt towards her alma mater. Whether dressing up for a cold football game, or attending a work meeting, it was challenging to represent her university in a fitting, yet classy fashion. Heirloom, quality, affordable, branded university items were nowhere to be found. That’s why Allison created Allison Claire, for the chic and sophisticated fan, student, alum, faculty, staff member, donor, coach, athlete, professor, and university administrator, alike.
Officially Licensed Collegiate Jewelry
Our founder, Allison Claire is committed to creating pieces that honor your alma mater. She personally designs each piece with care and attention to detail. Allison Claire’s designs are inspired by each university's unique attributes; like their architecture, mottos, symbols, colors, landscape, history, championships, and anniversaries. Our jewelry is officially licensed by the Collegiate Licensing Company, an IMG company.
Made in the USA
Once the design is made, Allison works directly with a local jeweler to bring each piece to life. All of our jewelry is made in the USA in our New York, LA, or Seattle factories. Each piece is custom made to fit your unique needs, and ships within three weeks.
We partner with trusted suppliers to ensure our products are made from ethically sourced precious metals and gemstones.
Inspired by the heirloom pieces our grandmothers handed down, we create legacy jewelry that you’ll be proud to pass down to the next generation. That’s why we source the highest quality silver, gold, diamonds, and gemstones to create each piece. We stand by the quality of our pieces and provide detailed instructions for how to properly care for your jewelry, so it lasts for generations to come.
Allison Claire and Mental Health
At Allison Claire, we believe people connect over shared experiences. Unfortunately, struggling with mental health is an increasingly common shared experience that we don’t know how to share. But, the beauty in this is that we’re not alone. Having faced her own battles with mental health, our founder Allison Claire cares deeply about raising awareness and removing barriers that exist around talking about mental health. We partnered with HOMS Seattle to create the Hearts Forever Collection; a selection of fine jewelry pieces designed to honor the daily journey of many who struggle with mental health. A portion of all profits from this collection is donated to Hilinksi's Hope; an organization that provides student-athletes at universities and colleges across the country critical training and conversations that will lead to better mental health awareness and care. When you wear a Hearts Forever piece, you’re joining a community that exists to remind you that you’re not in this alone. We’re all in this together; wearing our hearts on our sleeves and close to our hearts.
