Emily and Ashley  Siblings Emily and Ashley Green hatch jewelry designs that are redolent of the Orient, but their starting point is far more personal. “It began with our grandmother’s jewelry box—she wore onyx pieces and all the colors of the rainbow,” says Ashley.

Their unique  designs can be seen on stars like Julianne Moore (at left), Sarah Jessica Parker and Demi Moore.
