Kendra Scott: The Women Behind the Designs

We believe we carry one of the most diverse collections of Kendra Scott jewelry outside of Kendra Scott; carrying both Signature Core and Seasonal Collections. We carry over 1,000 different items from her collections.

About Kendra:

Inspired by her stepfather’s battle with cancer, Kendra, at 19, created The Hat Box in Austin, a hat boutique whose proceeds benefitted cancer research. She created pieces for both women and men. Sadly, she closed that business in 1998. This set the course to learn from her ‘failures’.

Being an entrepreneur at heart, in 2002, with her then husband out of work and a newborn, Kendra took $500 of the family savings and started designing and making jewelry out of her bedroom. Kendra took her wares door to door to local boutiques in Austin Texas in her tea box. When all sold out within a day, she knew she was onto something.

Her niche was (and is) to create a brand of jewelry that showcases beautiful designs at an affordable price. Kendra’s philosophy of giving back is one of the core pillars of her business along with family.

Now a billion dollar business, her core values remain the same. Kendra’s philosophy of giving back has been demonstrated over and over. In 2016 Kendra Scott Designs gave back $2.5M and donated over 75,000 pieces of jewelry.

Kendra Scott Collections:

Signature Collection – This collection is always available although select stones and metal finishes change year to year. Kendra selects certain styles to be featured as pop stones in each seasonal collection. These are available in limited quantity.

Kendra’s iconic silhouette is the oval shape and is found throughout many styles; earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings.

2 original styles are retiring this year, the Danielle earrings and the Rayne necklace. The design has been updated and replaced with Aragon earring and Inez necklace. So if you’ve been on the fence about purchasing, now is the time!
