Paige Dellavalle and Ashley Jung are the two West Point graduates behind the jewelry line Stella Valle. They say their jewelry designs reflect their military past. “These masculine design elements are balanced by feminine details and dainty crystals to portray their inherent femininity and fashion future,” says their website. They pitched Stella Valle on Shark Tank in 2013 and got an investment from Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner.

Since Shark Tank, Stella Valle secured a deal with Target. It’s the first time the retail giant has partnered with entrepreneurs from Shark Tank. And in July 2016, actress Blake Lively who’s promoting her recent film The Shallows, paired a $295 floral print dress and Chanel handbag with a pair of $10 Stella Valle for Target Mind Over Matter ear cuffs in gold.
