Dana Gordon has had an eye for glamour ever since she was a teenager. At age 16, she traveled to India with her father and came back with a jewelry collection that sold in 48 hours. Nineteen years later, she's still in business.

Dana Rebecca Designs is filled with luxurious, everyday staples. She is recognized all over the world and her jewelry has been worn by Taylor Swift, Kerry Washington, Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigan and Kourtney Kardashian, just to name a few. 

With her big social media following, Dana helps spread the word about causes she cares about, such as volunteering with Maot Chitim during the High Holidays, as her family does every year. She is on the Guild Board for the Boys and Girls Club of Chicago and is also involved in the Friends of the IDF's IMPACT! scholarship program, which her father started.
