Universal Standard Jewelry is a collection of inclusively sized jewelry.

According to Universal Standard's co-founder, Alexandra Waldman, "The most basic problem [with mainstream jewelry] is just that it doesn’t fit...Regular jewelry isn’t made to scale. This is a line of jewelry that is meant to look native on a bigger body." The Universal Standard jewelry collection includes pieces like rings, chokers and bracelets in elegant yet edgy designs.

A number of retailers have recognized the growing market demand for jewelry that is designed for plus size women. Recently ASOS, Torrid and Ashley Nell Tipton released inclusively sized jewelry ranges. As plus size women become more visible in popular culture and their unique needs become more recognized, an increasing number of brands are aiming to meet the unique needs of this demographic.
