The West Point Collection
Posted on 12/03/21 by Helene Mayne
In honor of Women's Military Month
Freida Rothman was raised by her grandparents to always honor this country that gave them a second chance at life. After a recent visit to the West Point Military Academy, meeting with female cadets and alumni, she left inspired by their grit, courage, values and strength.
The collection was designed in collaboration with a group of female graduates and draws inspiration from the institution's official colors of black and gold, intricate details of cadet uniforms and the academy motto, Duty, Honor, Country.
A statement necklace that represents the the women of west point and the honor code they live by. A backdrop of textured dark rhodium symbolizes the grit of West Point women and sparkling stones to remind them of their femininity. Charms of pave stars were added as an ode to their uniforms. Styled perfectly with our iconic Signature collection.
Inspired by the chevron sleeve insignia and stars on the uniforms worn by cadets. A backdrop of textured dark rhodium symbolizes the grit of West Point women and sparkling stones to remind them of their femininity.
The studded bands on this 5-stack ring were designed to represent the half dome buttons on the uniforms. Black rhodium is combined with sparkling stones for the perfect combination of grit and femininity.
The design inspiration for these everyday hoops was taken from the gold half dome buttons on the West Point uniforms. Adding just the right amount of edge to your look.
A PERCENTAGE OF SALES FROM THE THE WEST POINT COLLECTION WILL BE DONATED TO SUPPORT BOTH FEMALE GRADUATES AND CADETS OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY THROUGH WEST POINT WOMEN.

Freida Rothman has proudly partnered with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum in New York, offering a collection of her meaningful jewelry pieces at the museum gift shop.
As a native New Yorker, partnering with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum is an honor. Each piece from her collection tells a story of strength, honor and hope, paying tribute to the resilience of the city and to all those affected.
Having been shaped so significantly by both the Holocaust and then 9/11, Freida crafts pieces that pay homage to her beloved New York and underscore the importance of never forgetting. The 9/11 Museum gift shop proudly sells several of the pieces, honoring those killed on 9/11, the first responders who risked their lives to help others, and the city residents who came together in the days that followed the attacks. One of the pieces is the Honor Chain Link Pendant Necklace which Freida designed in collaboration with female West Point Military Academy graduates.
“We used the words “Honor” and “Courage” in recognition of first responders who embody these qualities.“ “We wanted to pay tribute to these brave men and women who risk their lives to help others."
