After internships at Glamour and Women’s Wear Daily, Ashley Gilroy was ready to make her mark in the fashion world. Her life and career path changed forever when she discovered a small family-owned jewelry shop that lead to a two-year apprenticeship under the Jain family. There, she not only learned about gemstones, design and manufacturing, but how to successfully launch and run a company. Returning to New York she launched J/Hadley, whose name was chosen to give credit to her two families: the "J" for Jain and "Hadley", her mother's maiden name. Four years later, J/Hadley is known for its bright and bold, diamond-accented statement earrings, bangles and rings.
