Helena Rubinstein (born Chaja Rubinstein; December 25, 1870 – April 1, 1965) was a Polish-American businesswoman, art collector, and philanthropist. A cosmetics entrepreneur, she was the founder and eponym of Helena Rubinstein Incorporated cosmetics company, which made her one of the world's richest women.
Jewelry as beauty accessory
In her manifesto, Rubinstein states her belief that jewelry is as important as make-up because it works wonders for the skin. “Several rows of pearls enhance the waxiest complexion”, “earrings of the right shape and color make the eyes shine and give character to a face. A beautiful ring with an original shape brings out the elegance of a hand.” She also had strong ideas about what to wear: for example, never wear two rings on the same hand.
