A Letter from Kyle

Redefining a Classic

 As I’ve been building KYLE CAVAN over the past few years, I’ve spent countless hours traveling to campuses around the country, reconnecting with old friends, and meeting new ones. It seemed fitting that the first post should tell my story. I hope you enjoy reading it, as much as I’ve enjoyed getting to live it.

The idea started small. A few years after college graduation, I was looking at my own collection of jewelry – defined by a few too many oversized costume necklaces. I was truly proud of the collection that I’d put together but I realized that my cherished pieces weren’t the loudest, newest or even my most expensive. My real treasures were the ones that were handed down to me and that I never took off, like the cross that I had worn underneath those oversized necklaces since my 16th birthday. They weren’t just beautiful, they inspired me, and they connected me to my family and my past. Each piece evoked feelings in me that were beyond description, and together they told my life’s story.

This is when I knew I wanted to design jewelry that would have meaning for every person that wore it. With this new purpose in mind, I immediately reflected on what was missing from my story and it was in this moment that the KYLE CAVAN story began.

 

 

Today, KYLE CAVAN is led by me, my best friend Elizabeth Shirley, my sister in law Elizabeth Garcia, and our small but talented team. Together, we are working to build a brand that brings deeper meaning to what it means to wear class jewelry, that fosters community across schools & generations, and injects much needed style to an industry that has long been dominated by masculine design. 

We hope that you will join us on this journey and the rest of the #CavanCrew <3
