ABOUT AWE:

Awe Inspired is a venture-backed spiritual wellness brand based in Los Angeles, CA. In 2018 when lifelong jeweler Jill Johnson beat cancer for the third time, she set out to design a necklace that was universally wearable, exceptionally made, and deeply empowering as a way to honor her fellow survivors. Thus the Goddess Necklace was born. Jill’s zillennial son Max made a digital Goddess Quiz that went viral, and together they founded Awe Inspired.

Since then, we’ve dedicated ourselves to helping others Live in Awe by designing wearable tokens of empowerment and using our platform to champion equality and social justice. Our beloved Goddess Collection has been worn by some of the most inspiring women in the world (Madonna, Miley, Taylor, Demi, Tyra, SJP, Halsey, etc) and featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, W, and InStyle. A portion of all proceeds benefit our incredible charity partners, and to date we’ve donated a million dollars to the causes we champion.
