Mary and Anthony Hood co-founded Hollywood Sensation in 2012. After the birth of their son, Mary was unable to return to work as a cosmetologist due to health reasons. Therefore, she wanted to find another way to still be engaged in the world of beauty from home. Mary then began to sell pearl earrings out of her home with the help of her husband, Anthony, who owned a mortgage company at the time. As their orders began to skyrocket, Anthony eventually closed his mortgage company, and he and Mary formed their full-time business: Hollywood Sensation Jewelry. Anthony Hood states, “We did everything ourselves and had to learn through experience. It’s amazing to think that we started all this with 500 dollars, and then we were up to filling about 5,000 orders a week.”
Mary and Anthony Hood established Hollywood Sensation in Oceanside, California with a showroom in Los Angeles as well as selling pieces through boutiques and online. However, as many businesses have taken a hit due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Hollywood Sensation had unfortunately experienced struggles as well, especially with many boutiques having to close their doors. Nevertheless, in the true spirit of American business, Hollywood Sensation continues to be driven and motivated to grow and succeed.
Hollywood Sensation is dedicated to helping women feel beautiful, confident, and empowered whether at the office or on the red carpet. Their vast online catalogue on their website makes shopping for fine jewelry a truly enjoyable experience. Their cutting-edge styles glisten with superb semi-precious gemstones or AAA+ cubic zirconia and are enhanced with platinum, 18 karat gold, or 925 sterling silver finishes. In addition, they offer many discounted pieces on top of their already reasonable prices. Hollywood Sensation also takes great pride in their efficient delivery and customer service. They have same-day shipping, and customers receive their orders in elegantly presented boxes. There is also a no-questions-asked return policy if customers are not satisfied with their purchases for whatever reason.
In addition to caring about their customers, Mary and Anthony Hood also believe in supporting others and giving back to the community. A portion of their proceeds go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation to help promote education and care for those affected by HIV and AIDS. Hollywood Sensation has also donated proceeds to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and has donated jewelry pieces to The Price is Right gameshow for their Breast Cancer Awareness episode. Hollywood Sensation genuinely promotes love and beauty through many avenues.
