KJ Couples: Emily and Aly

Posted by Francesca Iannaccone on

We love your love! That is why we have decided to reach out to a few of our amazing Kasia Tribe members, new and returning, to tell their stories. Love is powerful, beautiful, diverse and worthy of honoring through your unique story. By sharing these openly with you, we intend to spread joy in a time when we need it the most. We understand the privilege it is to be a part of your story, and we hope the sincerity of these couples will reflect the very special relationships we aim to have with everyone who walks through our doors (whether in-person or virtually).
First up, we have Emily and Aly! Amazingly sweet dog parents from Florida.

When did you know that your partner was THE ONE?

From the moment I met her. Aly radiates the most incredible energy and I fell in love with her after an hour of spending time with her!

What is one thing you love about your significant other?

I adore the passion that Aly has. Whether she’s diving into a new creative project, trying to improve her basketball skills or cooking one of her favorite recipes, she dives head first into the process and puts her whole heart and soul into everything she does.

What is an activity you love to do together?

Aly and I both love plants! So we try to find new nurseries, farms and plant shops in south Florida to visit in our free time together.

How did you two meet? (Give us as many details as you’d like!)

Aly and I met on New Year’s Eve (2016 going into 2017) and both were talked into going out by a mutual friend. We met at our favorite sushi restaurant, she offered me a sip of her iced green tea (her fave) and hit it off right away! One of the things that made me fall in love with Aly that night was that she made a point to call her grandma in the middle of dinner to wish her a happy 90th birthday. My heart literally melted! 

How did he/she propose?

We proposed to each other on the same day! We both had rings made by Kasia and in true Florida summer fashion we got engaged in our bikinis under the palm trees in our backyard.

How does Kasia Jewelry fit into your story?

Being 2 women, we often get asked “so.... do you both get rings?” Or  “who proposes to who?” And we decided we didn’t want to have to follow any rules or expectations! We had been looking for the perfect rings for a long time and when I came across Kasia’s work on Instagram, we knew it was meant to be. Kasia highlighted our love in the most wonderful way & helped us make our own rules when it came to our engagement! The entire team was so helpful and the process was so wonderful. I feel like we made a lifelong connection with Kasia, and now we can’t wait to pick wedding rings!

Black Lives Matter

Posted by Angeline Weiss on

Just like many of you, we have been deeply saddened and frustrated by recent events. During this critical and eye-opening time, it is so easy to feel helpless and powerless. But in order to see real change, we all must start where we can: by educating ourselves, giving back when possible, and most importantly, making a real change within ourselves and our own sphere of influence. 

The fashion industry has historically portrayed a standard of beauty that favors light skin tones and slender bodies. We at Kasia Jewelry have all agreed: we can do a whole lot better promoting inclusivity and positive body image by portraying diversity within our brand. 

Going forward, you can expect to see a change from us.

It starts small but mighty...

We are selling this postcard, featuring artwork by our own Operations Lead, Angeline. She’s using her artistic talents to benefit the Black Lives Matter movement, by donating 100% of the proceeds to Pretty Brown Girl meanwhile Kasia Jewelry will match all donations made. 

Pretty Brown Girl says, “Our mission is to educate girls of color and encourage self-acceptance by cultivating social, emotional and intellectual well-being.” They have been trailblazers when it comes to changing our country’s viewpoint on the standard of beauty, fighting for diversity and inclusivity across multiple industries catering to women and girls. 

Kasia Jewelry’s mantra of “Create Your Own Story” celebrates each individual’s unique personality, approach, style, aesthetic, and most importantly, their own unique experiences which have shaped these things. Our goal continues to be to highlight every reflection of YOU, and we continue to be inspired by the beauty of every size, shape, color, and background.

As a daily reminder to ourselves, we have painted a mural on our showroom wall of this illustration in living color. We hope that it inspires you to tell your own story, and celebrate diversity along with us. Our goal is to continue these efforts of inclusivity long after the hashtags stop trending, and that the permanence of writing it on the wall will serve as a representation of what we strive for as a brand. 

Can you recognize each of the painted pieces of jewelry in our collection?
