Before the Olympics began in London, beach volleyball superstar Kerri Walsh Jennings headed to Me & Ro studio in New York City to shop for some special pieces for herself and teammate Misty May-Treanor. “Kerri wore her Me & Ro Love & Om pendant when they won the gold medal in Beijing,” Me & Ro designer Robin Renzi told InStyle.com. “She wanted special pieces for this Olympics.” And she was very particular about one thing—it had to be gold. “When Kerri came to the studio I was showing her everything but she didn’t want to look at the silver line,” Renzi added. “She said ‘I only want gold. I need to win.’ She was a beautiful Amazon with an amazing competitive spirit.” Click through to see all of jewels and the personal inscriptions close-up.
