A collaboration between Olympic Gold Medalist, Michelle Carter, and plus size jeweler, Mabel & Main, was officially released today in a partnership that reflects joint values of body positivity and inclusivity within the plus-size community.
Couples have long been met with limited choices when visiting a jeweler, leading them to purchase what fits, in place of what they’ve dreamed of. The collaboration came together on the premise that no one should have to settle for less because of their size, a factor that motivated Michelle as she rose to become and World Championship Gold Medalist and Olympic Gold Medalist.
The Shot Diva Collection designed with Michelle’s inspiration is comprised of three bridal sets paired with matching earrings and pendants. Each style was designed to evoke the strength and poise inspired by Michelle, leading with the unique Morganite Collection, followed by the Carter Collection, and the Victorious Collection. All three collections are offered in gold and platinum varieties, studded with authentic diamonds and gemstones. Each piece was not only created using Michelle’s favorite design inspirations, but also to fit, look great, and feel comfortable on larger sizes.
Michelle’s message spreads much farther than just her accomplishments as an Olympian. Her non-profit organization, You Throw Girl, inspires young girls through inclusive youth sports camps where confidence building and athletic training helps them see beyond the limitations that society may place upon them. Participants are encouraged to find the power in their strengths, embrace their beauty inside and out, and strive for greatness.
You Throw Girl youth camps will receive 5% of proceeds from sales of the Shot Diva Collection.
About Mabel & Main
Mabel & Main was founded in 2021 to address the lack of jewelry options for plus size brides and grooms searching for authentic wedding jewelry.

Beginning her throwing career as a middle schooler in 1997, Michelle Carter became one of the most decorated American Female Shot Putters. Excelling on the global stage for more than 15 years, Michelle won gold at the 2016 World Indoor Championships and became the first American woman to win the Olympic Gold Medal at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, where she also set the American record. Combining her unapologetic love of all things fashion, beauty, makeup, and style, Michelle has affectionately become known as the “Shot Diva” — a brand she now uses to encourage others to love and embrace who they are despite what the world may say.
