About ElyseRyan Jewelry
Twenty years ago, Elise Rosenstock turned her beading hobby into a mission-driven business, ElyseRyan Jewelry. Beginning with just $300 worth of beads at her kitchen table, Elise has since sold her jewelry at the likes of Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s. In 2004, she designed a necklace for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, an organization started by young neuroblastoma patient Alex Scott, with the goal of curing childhood cancer. After showing the necklace on QVC, Elise raised over a million dollars for ALSF and began ongoing collaborations with other philanthropic organizations. Elise currently makes bracelets that give back, benefiting Katie’s own Stand Up to Cancer, alongside the rest of her collection. With materials ranging from semi-precious stones to timeless pearls and mixed metals, these are statement pieces you won’t want to take off.
Why we love them
ElyseRyan is a longtime favorite here at KCM. The brand’s striking stacks are the perfect addition to any outfit — try the Serenity Golden Pearls, which pair solid gold beads with freshwater pearls for an eye-catching and elegant look. KCM’s Kat wears her Weekender Stack during the week, too, alongside other gold jewelry or more colorful accents. (You can buy each bracelet individually or do the whole stack for a high-impact style.) We especially love the World Cancer Bracelet, which has beads representing the different types of cancer. A portion benefits SU2C, so pick one up for yourself or grab a mantra bracelet to give a gift with extra meaning.
