Leading Ladies 2018: Linda Gonzalez

Founder & Creative Director, Just Julez Inc.


Linda Gonzalez knows how to make women shine. With a love for adornment and a passion for business, Linda launched Just Julez Inc., a private label jewelry house named after her son Julian, in 2013. “I believe that jewelry has the power to inspire and empower women,” she says.

Linda’s keen ability to identify trends and designs women desire has been the driving force behind Just Julez Inc, a brand development and manufacturing powerhouse for many of today’s industry leaders. “It’s so rewarding to partner with retailers and help grow their business.” After years of producing successful lines for major retailers, the entrepreneur debuted her very own line, XoJulez. With the guiding principle “that every girl deserves to sparkle,” her jewelry is crafted with versatility in mind. “The pieces are designed to be personal treasures that can be worn forever.”

Originally from California, Linda feels like she is living the dream in RI. “I’m a single, Latina mother running two jewelry businesses in the jewelry capital. I’m so proud to be a woman-owned business in an industry that has been traditionally led by men,” she says. “It’s truly inspiring to be a woman creating effortless and everlasting designs that inspire other women.”
